Looking for a new SUV that combines the power of a large vehicle with the sleek, sexy look of a luxury car? Then you’re going to love the 2017 Dodge Durango GT. It’s already getting acclaim from industry insiders and auto enthusiasts—according to AutoBlog.com, the 2017 Durango GT is “one of their favorite sports utility vehicles.”1 The praise is no mere hype.
In this post, we’ll break down the many highlights of the 2017 Dodge Durango GT Brass Monkey edition, inside and out. If this doesn’t get you running to the nearest Dodge dealership, we don’t know what will.
What’s on the Outside?
Over the last decade, Dodge has made an effort to transform itself from a brand associated with mainstream cars and trucks, to a company known for pumping out performance-oriented sports vehicles and muscle cars. The 2017 Durango fits in remarkably well with the rest of the Dodge lineup since 2014, when parent company Fiat Chrysler announced that Dodge would be absorbing both Chrysler’s SRT division and the Viper supercar.2
The Durango Brass Monkey edition starts to impress right from the get-go with an incredibly sleek and beautiful exterior. The gloss white and gloss black paint treatment (with optional gloss red available, as well) may be a simple design, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t look great when combined with the beautiful, 20-in burnished bronze aluminum wheels.
Under the Hood
Once you take a look at the engine, things start getting really impressive. The 2017 Durango is powered by a 295-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 and an 8-speed automatic transmission and is capable of 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
While this may not seem like impressive mileage when measured against smaller vehicles, this is a much more efficient rate of fuel consumption than nearly any other V8-powered vehicle on the market. Not only does the 2017 Durango offer lots of power; it also shifts gears incredibly smoothly and will save its owners plenty at the pump, without them needing to sacrifice on the type of performance people expect from SUVs.
Inside the Cabin
There’s even more to love about this vehicle inside the cabin. In addition to dual rear seat video screen, there’s also separate HDMI inputs to each screen, plus rear USB ports and plugs to charge laptops, tablets, phones, and handheld video game consoles. On top of that, there’s the Blu-ray/DVD player and a lavish Beats stereo system for blasting your favorite tunes.
All in all, the 2017 Dodge Durango GT Brass Monkey edition is one impressive vehicle and is sure to cater to drivers and passengers of every taste. The combination of rough and ready power, smooth and steady driving, and luxury amenities inside the cabin are enough to keep the whole family content, no matter the occasion.
