Reasons to Buy
Assembly Location
• Detroit, Michigan
Market Exclusives
•The Pentastar™ VVT V6 engine is the
most advanced six-cylinder engine
ever produced by the Chrysler Group
Even after a major revamp in 2011, buyers will be excited to learn that the 2012 Dodge Durango
still has a few tricks up its sleeve. It continues to evolve new interior appointments such as
2nd-row captain’s chairs and a new 2nd-row console with armrest storage and cupholders are
available. An available leather-wrapped shift knob has also been added.
Underneath Durango’s muscular body, the 5-speed transmission is replaced with the
65RFE 6-speed transmission on V8 models, and over and above, new paint colours add to
Durango’s allure.
And, dealers will enjoy the simplified Durango model lineup for 2012. The exclusion of the

READY ALERT BRAKING
•This electronic brake control feature can help reduce stopping distances in an
•Full braking power is available more quickly, which
emergency situation
may help to reduce stopping distances
•When a foot is lifted off the accelerator pedal abruptly, the braking system applies
a slight amount of brake pressure in order to apply the brakes more quickly if
necessary

•Monitors and compares wheel speed to vehicle speed
•Automatically modulates brake pressure during hard braking to prevent wheel
lockup
•Provides improved steering control under extreme
braking and/or slippery conditions

applying the brakes at individual wheels
•Automatically helps/assists driver in maintaining
control of their vehicle during extreme steering
manoeuvres
•Provides added driving confidence, particularly in
rain and snow
BRAKE ASSIST
•Overcomes the tendency of not applying the brakes hard enough in an emergency
braking situation by using the ESC system to instantly apply the maximum
available brake pressure
•A component of the ABS/ESC system
•Helps vehicle stop sooner in emergency situations
by reacting faster than the driver is able to apply
maximum brake pedal pressure
•Helps provide the shortest possible stopping
distance in emergency braking situations
ALL-SPEED TRACTION CONTROL
•Monitors the amount of wheelspin of each of the driven wheels
•Applies brake pressure to the slipping wheel(s) and reduces engine power to
provide enhanced acceleration and stability
•A component of the ABS/ESC system

•Monitors the driver’s steering wheel input and the speed of the vehicle to sense
the potential for wheel lift
•Detects when the sudden buildup of lateral force during a severe turn or evasive
manoeuvre can cause the vehicle to start to tip
•Applies the brakes with a high burst of pressure to cause the outside tire to slip
and the vehicle’s weight to transfer back over the inside tires and helps keep all
four tires solidly on the ground
•A component of the ABS/ESC system
•Provides an enhancement to the Electronic Stability
Control to help reduce the likelihood of a vehicle side
rollover
•Reduces the chance of a rollover in sudden
manoeuvres and evasive events
•Provides additional security and confidence by
keeping all four tires solidly on the ground
•Especially useful in vehicles with a higher centre of
mass such as SUVs and pickup trucks
AVAILABLE TRAILER SWAY CONTROL
•Enhancement to ESC
•The ESC yaw sensor recognizes when there are alternating forces on the vehicle
that aren’t caused by steering input
•The sway could be caused by strong wind gusts or an improperly loaded trailer
•Trailer Sway Control activates stabilizing effects by using brake pressure on
alternating wheels to help stabilize the vehicle’s path and, if necessary, adjusts
the electronic throttle to help bring the vehicle and trailer under control
•Reduces trailer sway and provides improved trailer
stability
•Contributes to increased towing safety, driver
assurance and confidence
