If there’s an aspect of automobiles that car buyers have grown more and more concerned with in recent years, it is fuel economy. Going green is no longer just a novel concept; it’s becoming imperative, not just for the betterment of our planet, but to save money at the pumps.
For these reasons, Jake Sweeney Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM in Springdale, OH, have put emphasis on a number of fuel efficient, Eco-friendly vehicles…one of them being the 2017 Dodge Durango.
We know that fuel efficiency and SUV have not always historically gone hand in hand, but the 2017 Dodge Durango was designed to try and change all that. The first part comes from its 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine. This engine is so fuel-efficient that the 2017 Dodge Durango can go as far as 600 highway miles on only one tank of gas. Should you be inclined to kick it up a notch, the available 5.7L-liter HEMI® V8 engine should be more than enough. What’s even more impressive, fuel economy remains a priority in this model as well. Using a special advanced fuel saving feature, the engine detects when all cylinders are not required, and deactivates half of them.
A Dual Variable Valve Timing feature, available in with both engines, further improves fuel economy and overall performance. A computer-aided system maximizes combustion using recycled heat energy to further bolster efficiency and power.
To seal the deal, there is Eco mode. Eco Mode bumps up the efficiency of the transmission shift schedule and sensitivity of the throttle to optimize fuel consumption.
If you like power, performance, and fuel economy, then the 2017 Dodge Durango might be the vehicle for you. You’ll find it and many other impressive driving machines here at our Dodge car dealership.
