The 2022 Durango’s Performance is for More Than Speed
2022 Dodge Durango Performance Specs
Dodge has one of the most interesting corporate stories in the global automotive industry. The automaker is arguably best known for perfecting the muscle car during the 1970s. Those platforms are so important to the brand’s identity that it developed the Dodge Durango, an SUV with the soul of a muscle car. The performance specs found with the 2022 Dodge Durango make that connection very clear. Southside Dodge has finally taken delivery of the latest Durango and people interested in the convenience of an SUV but who still want the feel of a high-performance car should visit our showroom as soon as possible. Let’s take a look at what the 2022 Durango has to offer.

How Fast is the 2022 Durango?
The 2022 Dodge Durango might look like an SUV, but it performs like a classic Dodge muscle car. Southside Dodge customers will have three engines to choose from when they’re outfitting the 2022 Durango. Base models will start out with a naturally aspirated 3.6-litre, Pentastar V-6 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic. It will make an impressive 293 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
Dodge pioneered the hemispherical engine or HEMI®. Potential buyers looking for even more power can choose trim grades with a naturally aspirated 5.7-litre, HEMI® V-8, using a different eight-speed automatic. Durango models using this powertrain will deliver up to 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. The new SRT 392 model actually uses a larger HEMI® 6.4-litre, V-8 that pushes available power output to a blistering 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
A 2022 Dodge Durango SRT 392 will be able to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than five seconds – a high watermark for the rest of the segment. Even a 2022 Durango with the 5.7-litre engine offers an incredible top speed of 233 km/h (145 mph).
Is the 2022 Dodge Durango Good for Towing?
Future owners of the latest Durango might not test their vehicle’s mettle at a track day, but all of that performance and torque won’t go to waste. Not only is the 2022 Durango among the most powerful platforms in its class, but it also offers towing capabilities that even rival some light-duty pickup trucks. Take a look at the table below.
