10 Of The Best New SUVs For Towing, Ranked

The Dodge Durango is a capable three-row SUV with a $41,670 starting price. It boasts advanced technologies, impressive towing capacity, and uncompromised utility. For the 2024 model year, the Durango has 15 trim options, ranging from the base SXT trim to the monstrous Durango SRT Hellcat Premium super SUV. The base trims use an efficient 3.6-liter V6 engine with 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. While it's not the most powerful engine in the lineup, it enables the Durango to tow a maximum of 6,200 pounds.

For the best towing experience, Dodge offers V8 engines with a maximum towing capacity of 8,700 pounds. First among these V8s is the 5.7-liter Hemi, which produces 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. While that's better performance than the V6, this engine requires the Tow N Go package, helping it achieve the maximum towing figure. With the Tow N Go package, the 5.7 liters V8 powered Durango models benefit from the menacing looks of the SRT, an increased top seed of 145 mph, an electronically limited-slip differential, Track, Sport, Snow, and Tow drive modes, SRT active damping suspension, and an SRT performance exhaust.

On the other hand, the more powerful 6.4-liter Hemi V8 in the Durango SRT trim doesn't need the package to achieve the maximum towing figure — all engines in the lineup pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission, sending power to the rear wheels. Dodge also offers optional all-wheel drive to enhance the driver's confidence further. Some Durango models feature additional towing tech like Trailer-tow Group IV. This equipment introduces an integrated brake controller, a Class IV hitch receiver, an integrated trailer brake switch, and rear road leveling shocks.
