When choosing a new vehicle, you are going to have a lot of variables to consider. Some of those choices have a greater impact than others. For many, fuel efficiency is near the top of that list.
At Executive Dodge Jeep® in Wallingford, CT, we offer a large inventory of environmentally friendly and fuel efficient vehicles designed to simultaneously thrill your senses and ease your conscience. A great example of one such automobile is the 2017 Dodge Durango.
An SUV might not be the first image that comes to mind when you think fuel economy and environmental consciousness, but this is what makes the 2017 Dodge Durango so special. Powered by an impressive 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine, this SUV can go as far as 600 miles on the highway with only a single tank of gas. If you want even more power the available 5.7 liter HEMI® V8 engine option has a special feature for advanced fuel conservation. When it detects that all cylinders are not required, it will deactivate 4 of them to further maximize fuel economy.
Dual Variable Valve Timing improves fuel economy and overall performance regardless of which engine choice you go with. Using a computer-aided system heat energy is recycled to improve combustion for better efficiency and power.
Eco Mode rounds out all of these features. When you push a button the vehicle will switch into a special Eco Mode, this makes the shift schedule of the transmission and sensitivity of the throttle more efficient.
