Dodge Durango Interior
According to auto journalists, the 2015 Dodge Durango's cabin has a handsome design and is fitted with high-quality materials, though some critics mention that wind noise could be better damped at highway speed. They say its front seats are comfortable, but the second- and third-row seats get mixed reviews in terms of how much space they offer. Reviewers write that the Durango's Uconnect infotainment system is very user-friendly.
- "Modern and functional, the 2014 Dodge Durango's cabin has been designed with families in mind. Regardless of trim level, the design is attractive and features upscale materials." -- Edmunds (2014)
- "Previously, the Durango's cabin was a functional space with generally unimpeachable materials, but it lacked the design flair to truly set it apart. That's no longer the case, with a sleek new steering wheel and a reconfigurable instrument panel doing wonders to spice things up." -- Left Lane News (2014)
- "Niggles of the 2014 Durango are slight, but ever so present. There's a surprising amount of wind noise on the freeway." -- AutoWeek (2014)
The 2015 Durango seats up to seven on standard cloth upholstery. Seating options include leather upholstery, second-row captain’s chairs, heated and power-adjustable front seats, a heated steering wheel and heated second-row seats. Reviewers write that the front seats are comfortable and spacious. Some say the second row is comfortable, but others complain that it feels too flat. Test drivers offer mixed opinions on the third row as well, as some say it offers a decent amount of space, but others say it is too cramped for adults to be comfortable.
- "Also, while the Durango's third-row seat is handy, it's far from the roomiest you'll find." -- AutoTrader
- "The 2nd row is quite roomy and comfortable. Standard seat heaters on all but the SXT are a comfort plus. The split bench folds and tumbles forward with one-touch motion to provide a surprisingly generous passage to the 3rd row. It does not slide fore or aft, however. The rearmost seat can accommodate two small-to-average-size adults in a pinch, but they will ride slightly knees up. As such, we recommend the 3rd row be used for kids only." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
- "The legroom in both rows was plentiful. I could sit comfortably in the third row." -- Mother Proof (2013)
- "The front seats are roomy and comfortable, but the standard second-row bench has rather flat cushioning (which helps promote a flatter load floor when the seat is folded) and doesn't offer quite as much legroom as roomier rivals. The Durango's easily accessed third row, on the other hand, offers a surprising amount of leg- and headroom (even for 6-footers) and is indeed more spacious than the Ford Explorer's." -- Edmunds (2014)
Standard features in the 2015 Durango include tri-zone automatic climate control, a six-speaker audio system, the Uconnect infotainment system with a 5-inch touch screen, Bluetooth and a USB port. Available features include a rearview camera, navigation, a 10-speaker Beats by Dr. Dre audio system, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, rear cross path alert, remote start, a dual-screen rear-seat Blu-ray entertainment system and the Uconnect system with an 8.4-inch touch screen.
Auto journalists agree that the Uconnect system is easy to use and the 8.4-inch screen has a sharp display. They appreciate the integration of apps, like one from Yelp, which helped them discover places to go.
- "The available 8.4-inch touchscreen display is attractive and easy to use. The gauges look better, too, with crisp graphics and a useful trip computer display." -- Edmunds (2014)
- "Bringing extra capability and a more modern appearance to the center stack is Chrysler's user-friendly Uconnect Access infotainment system, which is available with either a 5.0- or 8.4-inch touchscreen and accompanied by redesigned redundant controls." -- Left Lane News (2014)
- "That [Uconnect] system is in the Durango, with the added feature of a Yelp app that is pretty handy for finding what you want wherever you are. Taxidermy in LA? Yeah, it told us where to go." -- Autoblog (2014)
The 2015 Durango offers 17.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, 47.7 cubic feet with the third row folded and 84.5 cubic feet behind the front seats. The Durango’s cargo space is typical for the class, though rivals like the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia have more cargo space.
- "With the second- and third-row seats folded down, the Durango can carry up to 84.5 cubic feet of cargo. This is a respectable amount, but competing large crossover SUVs like the Chevy Traverse and Mazda CX-9 offer considerably more cargo space." -- Edmunds (2014)
- "Cargo space is decent behind the 3rd row. Folding both rows of seat backs opens up a much larger area, though admittedly not as much as other big SUVs. … The bottle holders in the front doors are oddly angled, which makes access easy, but that makes full containers more likely to spill." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
