Exterior – 2020 Dodge Durango

The saying “appearance is everything” certainly holds true in the automotive industry. The 2020 Dodge Durango clearly takes that expression to heart with a number of innovative exterior features from front to back. The 2020 Durango gets bold, expressive LED headlights and available automatic daytime running lights. Some trims are also outfitted with equally prominent fog lights for better visibility in poor lighting conditions. The Durango also gets racetrack-inspired LED lighting in the back. While the Durango has a spacious cargo area that can easily hold your belongings, it also comes with stylish roof rails that increase its cargo carrying capacity while adding to its rugged appearance. There is an assortment of wheel sizes available with this year’s Durango, too. A split-crosshair grille gives the Durango a bold appearance, while Dual Mopar racing stripes, available on select trim levels, makes the Durango even more formidable. The 2020 Explorer, on the other hand, has a more subdued appearance. It doesn’t come with the same number of standard features as the Durango. You have to pay more for amenities like 21-inch wheels, special color and design schemes, and LED lighting.

Interior – 2020 Dodge Durango in Albuquerque NM

The 2020 Durango is equally impressive on the inside. At our dealership serving Albuquerque Los Lunas Santa Fe, you will have the opportunity to explore all six trims. The base trim, called the SXT, comes with a number of standard features such as a seven-inch standard infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There are three rows of seats for a seating capacity of seven. A 115V power charging outlet and power-operated liftgate are standard on the second trim level, which is called the CT. The next trim in the lineup, called the Citadel, has a slightly different style inside and out. It also gets a more performance-oriented look all around. The RT features simulated suede upholstery. Its seats are ventilated in the front for optimal climate control. Along with these standard features, there are many more options available to give your Durango a custom finish. Appearance, safety, and technology packages are available for many trims. A number of safety features are available on most trims, including rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring. The highest trim levels also have reduced seating capacity for six. The 2020 Ford Explorer, on the other hand, doesn’t offer as much for occupants to enjoy.
