2003 Dodge Durango Overview

Dodge did not make many changes to the Durango in 2003, as it was preparing for a new generation in 2004. Notable changes this year include making 16-inch wheels and 4-wheel disc brakes standard on all trims.

Trims remained the same for the 2003 Durango. The Sport, SLT, SLT Plus, and SXT models all came standard with a 5-speed automatic transmission and a 4.7-liter, 235-hp, V8 engine, a tough, fuel-efficient engine and powertrain combo that could tow more than 7,000 pounds and still get off the line quickly. For even better acceleration and sport tuning, the R/T performance trim included a behemoth 5.9-liter, 245-hp V8 paired with a 4-speed automatic.

Drivers love the truck-like look of the 2003 Dodge Durango and that its handling and interior are more car-like and intuitive. The cargo capacity is the largest in its class. But along with the envious stares drivers say they receive, you will also make many new friends with your Durango, including Exxon, Mobil, Texaco, and Shell. With only 14/18 mpg (and most drivers say that's a generous figure), the Durango won't take you far on a 25-gallon tank.
