2017 Dodge Durango Vs. 2017 Kia Sorento Gonzales, TX
Come by Benny Boyd Gonzales to compare the innovative 2017 Dodge Durango versus the 2017 Kia Sorento. The Dodge Durango comes standard with the electronic eight-speed automatic transmission, providing impressive efficiency, acceleration and shifting. The Rotary E-shift adds interior refinement, while standard steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters lend precise manual control of the transmission. Equip your Durango with the available 5.7L HEMI V8 engine and you can tow up to 7,400 pounds. The standard 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine provides a maximum towing capacity of up to 6,200 pounds. The front engine and rear drive axle are made for a near 50/50 weight distribution. When accelerating, weight shifts to the drive axle to increase downforce and helps improve traction. Robust steel, quick shock and spring rates and large sway bars improve driving dynamics. V6-equipped models get electro-hydraulic steering and V8-equipped models get hydraulic steering. Electronic Stability Control monitors your steering and vehicle motion to give you confidence on every curve. For extreme maneuvers, ESC compares your steering input with the vehicle’s actual movement. When it detects a difference, ESC applies the brakes and reduces the throttle to maintain directional control. Dodge Durango offers two available all-wheel-drive systems—depending on your choice of engine. Each system enhances the vehicle’s traction and handling on a range of road conditions.
The best technology is the kind that makes your life easier. The Dodge Durango is packed with features you’ll wonder how you ever lived without. The available memory system lets you save two personalized settings for the power driver seat position, power tilt and telescoping steering column, power exterior mirrors and radio station presets. The available memory system can recall settings for two different drivers—from the driver seat, steering wheel and pedal positions, to exterior mirrors and radio station presets. Standard Keyless Enter ‘n Go allows you to unlock the doors by pulling one of the front door handles, as long as the key fob is on you. You can also set the system to unlock only the driver door.
When compared to the 2017 Dodge Durango, the 2017 Kia Sorento falls short. The 2017 Sorento is sophistication with an edge. Its wide stance and long wheelbase offer versatile cabin space with available seating for up to seven. Available with Smart Power Liftgate for touch-free opening and a height-adjustable hatch, the Sorento is the modern utility vehicle made for your world. It’s a spacious interior that adapts to your needs. Designed with available second-row sliding seats to give rear passengers easy third-row access. Plus, available Remote Release lets you conveniently fold down the second row while standing at the rear of the vehicle—giving you more room as you pack in your cargo. Automatic and intuitive, the available hands-free Smart Power Liftgate opens when it senses your smart key—with no hands or feet required. And the liftgate can be adjusted to your height preference, making closing the hatch even more convenient. It’s improved handling and dynamic power. With the available Dynamax™ All-Wheel-Drive system, the Sorento delivers a smooth, refined drive even on rough roads. Choose from three engines to fully customize your experience. Engines range from the fuel-efficient 2.4-liter 4-cylinder to the 2.0-liter turbo engine with its impressive performance without sacrificing fuel economy. And if it's power you're craving, go with the 3.3-liter V6 AWD which offers 5,000-pound towing capacity.
