About Dodge Durango
The Chrysler Aspen is a Chrysler premium SUV. The Aspen was based on the Dodge Durango SUV and was introduced for the 2007 model year. Although the PT Cruiser was the first truck-based Chrysler brand vehicle classified under the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) regulation, the Aspen was the first truck-based SUV commercialized under the Chrysler brand. As a result of its debut, all American vehicle manufactures had an SUV in their lineup by 2007. The truck made its debut at the North American International Auto Show in 2005. The Aspen had three rows of seating for a total of eight passengers, as well as all-wheel drive. There was only one trim level: Limited.
In the 2006 film Deck the Halls and the video game The Movies: Stunts and Effects, the 2007 Chrysler Aspen is featured.
It was canceled after the 2009 model year because to low sales. In 2011, the Dodge Durango Citadel, on the other hand, covered the mid-size luxury SUV segment.
Chrysler said in October 2008 that the closure of the Newark Assembly plant, which built the Durango and Chrysler Aspen, would be pushed back to the end of 2008, putting the Aspen and Durango out of production after the 2009 model year. On December 19, 2008, production came to an end.
Dodge created an Internet site and teaser photographs of the third-generation Dodge Durango on August 16, 2010, after announcing the Durango’s demise after the 2009 model year.
The 2011 Dodge Durango was introduced on the market on December 14, 2010, alongside the second-generation Dodge Charger. It went on sale in mid-January 2011 for general dealership availability.
The third-generation Durango shares the same assembly line, running gear, powertrains, and chassis components as the Jeep Grand Cherokee at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit, Michigan. The Durango has three rows of seating and a somewhat longer wheelbase than the Grand Cherokee.
There are four engines in the third-generation Durango. At 4,800 rpm, the basic engine produces 290 horsepower (216 kW; 294 PS) and 260 lbft (353 Nm) of torque; 90 percent of peak torque is available from 1,600 to 6,400 rpm. A Mercedes W5A580 five-speed automatic, with Chrysler controls and driver-interactive management, backs up the Pentastar V6 engine. Since 2014, Dodge has only used the ZF eight-speed transmission in two Durango models. The ZF 8hp is standard on all V8s, while the 850re version of the ZF8hp is standard on all V6s. The 5.7 L Hemi VVT V8 produced 360 horsepower (268 kW; 365 PS) and 390 pound-feet (529 Nm) of torque with the 545RFE five-speed automated transmission. A “fuel-saver” (cylinder deactivation) mode is also available on the Hemi V8.
