The Dodge Durango is a full-size SUV manufactured at the Jefferson Ave. plant in Detroit, Michigan. Originally introduced as a mid-size SUV in 1998, it was redesigned in 2004 as a full-size and today is available in four separate models, the SXT, Crew, R/T and Citadel. Car transportation companies probably won’t need the specific trim level; telling them you’re shipping a Dodge Durango should be enough. It was originally a strong seller for Dodge, though from 2006-2009 sales tanked and the company redesigned it in 2010 for the 2011 model year. The redesign proved successful, selling more Durangos in 2011 than 2008-2010 combined. This article will focus on what key features are available on the 2012 Dodge Durango as well as what you can expect while searching for car transportation quotes to move it.
The 2012 Durango comes in four models; the SXT features a 290-hp Pentastar V6 engine with a five-speed automatic transmission, 23 hwy miles per gallon, seven-passenger seating and 18-inch aluminum wheels. The Crew features the Uconnect Media Center with a 6.5-inch touchscreen display, a rear backup camera with the ParkSense rear park assist function, premium Alpine-powered sound system with nine speakers and a 506-watt amplifier, and a powered liftgate, remote start, and keyless entry systems. The R/T features a 5.7L HEMI V8 engine with Fuel Saver Technology, performance steering and suspension, suede low-back bucket seats with red-accent stitching and 20-inch satin carbon aluminum wheels. The Citadel features 20-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels, Napa leather-trimmed seats with perforated inserts, heated/ventilated first row seats and heated second row seats, blind-spot monitoring and a forward-collision warning system.
The Durango is a full-size SUV, which in the car transportation industry usually means a small overweight/oversize vehicle fee will be added to your car transportation quotes. This is standard across the car transportation industry but should only cost you an additional $50-$150 at most. Car transportation companies will tack this onto the base mileage price, which in turn is determined by where the pickup and delivery cities are located. Most car transportation companies stick to highly-traveled interstate routes and prefer pickup and delivery locations in or near major metropolitan areas. Your base mileage price will be higher if you are shipping to or from a location off the beaten path, so if you need car transportation on a budget it might be best to actually move your pickup/delivery location(s) to a more convenient area for car transportation companies to get in or out of. If you have questions or concerns about this you can always talk to your car transportation representative about ways to save money.
