The sales professionals at Briggs Dodge - the premiere Dodge dealer in Topeka, Kansas and surrounding areas - have a very good feeling about the new 2012 Dodge Durango. The redesigned 2011 Durango was nice, but the 2012 edition is even more refined thanks to Dodge.

The return of the Dodge Durango brought with it numerous awards, from MotorWeek and the American Automobile Association (AAA). For 2012, the Durango receives even more features, allowing Durango to raise the bar once again for value in the seven-seat SUV segment.

With its four-wheel independent suspension, near 50:50 weight distribution, and responsive steering and handling, the new 2012 Durango has driving dynamics unlike any other SUV currently on the road - in a good way.

Utility may be one of Durango’s key attributes, but safety did not take a back seat during development. The 2012 Dodge Durango was recently named a “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

“There is simply no compromise with Durango,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO - Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC.

“Only Durango offers standard seven-passenger seating, best-in-class power, best-in-class towing and best-in-class driving range of more than 550 miles, while also delivering unmatched style and driving dynamics.”

The 2012 Dodge Durango is an IIHS Top Safety Pick and offers consumers 45 safety and security features, including standard electronic stability control (ESC) that delivers three security features to improve overall vehicle stability both on- and off-road: electronic roll mitigation (ERM) reacts and applies brakes during extreme situations, while available Hill-start Assist (HSA) works with standard Trailer-sway Control (TSC) to enhance off-road and towing capabilities.

There are many other safety and security features available on the new Durango including Blind-spot Monitoring (BSM) and Rear Cross Path (RCP) detection, which aid drivers when they’re changing lanes or in parking lot situations. Additionally, the 2012 Durango features standard seat-mounted air bags in the front row, while side-curtain air bags extend protection to all three rows. It also includes standard front-row active head restraints.
