Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Bowie serving the Washington, D.C. area knows that its customers want vehicles that walk the line of both efficiency and power. One of the most impressive examples of this dichotomy is the 2017 Dodge Durango.

That’s right, an SUV is a stunning example of an Eco-friendly offering. The 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine is what puts the 2017 Dodge Durango in such an efficient position. You can go as far as 600 miles on just one single tank of gas. The available upgrade to the 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine is for those looking for an extra boost, that won’t come at the expense of your fuel usage. Because of the added benefit of a special advanced fuel conserving system, excessive cylinder firing is detected and deactivated to maximize fuel efficiency.

Both engines operate in tandem with the Dual Variable Valve Timing feature. This provides better performance and fuel economy. A computer-aided system further increases efficiency and power using recycled heat energy to maximize combustion.
