2021 Dodge Durango Plainfield NJ

Many changes have been made to the 2021 Dodge Durango compared to its predecessor. With new features and the SRT Hellcat joining the model lineup for one year only, it’s no wonder this SUV took home multiple prestigious automotive accolades.

One of the updates made to the Durango is the implementation of the next-generation Uconnect 5 infotainment system that comes standard in the R/T, Citadel, SRT 392 & SRT Hellcat and is optional on the GT. This technology provides so many improvements including:

  • TomTom navigation system
  • In-vehicle Alexa virtual assistant with natural voice capability
  • Simultaneous dual-phone connectivity via Bluetooth
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto for integrating your smartphone
  • SiriusXM’s Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora
  • Customizable home screen for up to 5 user profiles plus a valet mode
  • Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) software updates
  • Unique Dodge-themed appearance with black & red accents, Durango graphic on the category bar and SRT-exclusive Easter eggs & features
  • Available Uconnect LTE WiFi Package with Alexa compatibility to perform remote vehicle functions

Uconnect 5 is such an innovation that it received the Best Infotainment award as part of the Texas Truck Rodeo. Speaking of awards, let’s take a look at the ones earned by the 2021 Dodge Durango that’s here at our dealership serving Springfield NJ.

2021 Dodge Durango Accolades

Staying with the Texas Truck Rodeo, the Texas Automotive Writers Association (TAWA) named the Durango SRT Hellcat as the SUV of Texas (along with the Full-Size SUV of Texas and Best Powertrain honors). This was determined by 27 judges who looked at many factors after test drives on & off the road like styling, off-road capability, overall utility, value & performance.

The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat is the most powerful trim of this SUV ever made thanks to the supercharged 6.2L HEMI Hellcat V8 under the hood that delivers 710 horsepower and 645 lb/ft of torque. This results in the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds and cover a quarter mile in only 11.5 seconds.
