If you need a sport utility vehicle that offers performance, space and a surprising trip capacity, consider Dodge's mid-size Durango. Its 600-mile highway range impresses us at Lithia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT of Roseburg. Additionally, this popular SUV looks simply stellar on our Roseburg, OR lot.

Dodge designs engines that recycle heat. That aspect raises performance while lowering engine stress and average-energy consumption. Your Durango's engine will also feature variable valve timing, which improves its combustion chambers' efficiency. As a result, upgrading to the line's available HEMI setup still provides a top range above 500 miles.

While it is important, fuel-stretching should also be a fun pursuit. The Dodge Durango's transmission helps achieve that goal. You can passively drive while the automatic, eight-speed unit constantly chooses the optimal gear, or you can use its manual-shift features to submerge yourself in your driving experience. The Durango lets you choose its shift points via wheel paddles, or you can engage Dodge's trademarked Sinister Shifter.
