2022 Dodge Durango — Courtesy/Copyright: Stellantis
The Dodge Durango’s future is uncertain, with rumors swirling around about its impending cut-off and the brand’s silence on the model’s future. Since experts believe that the three-row muscle SUV has about two model years left, it makes sense to expect little to no changes to the model’s lineup. Knowing the Durango SRT Hellcat was a halo product, 2022 leaves buyers with only five trims to choose from. These are the entry-level GT, SXT, R/T, Citadel, and the HEMI-powered SRT 392. For the 2022 model year, every Durango features rear cross-path detection and standard blind-spot monitoring. Before, the entry-level Durango SXT did not have these options, while the rest of the lineup required an additional $495 for the features.
Additionally, the SXT trim features a standard third row that ups the seating capacity from five passengers to seven. The driver’s seat now comes with standard power, and Dodge added ParkSense rear park assist and bright roof rails as well. On the other hand, the GT trim now offers heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a power liftgate, and remote start. Dodge also expanded its Plus Group Package to the GT, SXT, and R/T trims. Dodge has given no hints regarding a 2022 Durango SXT Plus — a trim that currently exists — therefore experts suspect it may be going away.
The previously mentioned Plus Package gains Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop, Lane Departure Warning Plus, and Advanced Brake Assist. The GT Plus trim adds more features such as rain-sensing automatic wipers, second-row heated seats, leather seats with suede inserts, bright cargo area scuff plates, and seat memory. The R/T Plus adds Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, a Premium Interior Package with a wrapped instrument panel, Nappa leather with perforated seat inserts and accent stitching, Harman Kardon premium audio, bright cargo area scuff plates, a sunroof, and a Dinamica soft-touch headliner.
The automaker also offers a Blacktop Package on the SXT, GT, and R/T, and adds an SRT performance hood and all-season tires. When it comes to exterior color options, Mopar Insiders reported that Dodge cut them down. While the current lineup has 11 exterior shade options, only four are said to remain — White Knuckle, Octane Red, DB Black, and Destroyer Grey.
