The new Dodge Durango comes with an eight speed automatic transmission powered by a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine or a 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine that gives it iconic characteristics of a Dodge muscle car. Also standard on the vehicle is the Engine Stop/Start (ESS) technology that helps to improve fuel efficiency by shutting off the engine when the vehicle comes to a complete stop. The engine automatically restarts when the driver releases the brake, thus, allowing smooth acceleration.
