A One Of A Kind Test Drive With Dodge


I hate test driving new cars...said no one ever.

There is something so fun and exciting about shopping for a new car and taking it for a test drive. Don't you agree? While we aren't in the market for a new car right now (I just got a new car last year, but I would love for Billy to eventually get an SUV!), I still like to know what is out there for when the time comes, and I like to see what is 'hot' in the car world!

I recently had the opportunity to visit my local Dodge dealership to test drive the new 2014 Dodge Durango. I remember what the previous models look like, but the 2014 Durango seriously has no limits and blows those out of the water. It has THREE rows, is bolder, sleeker and more technologically advanced than ever before. I mean, look....
 
pretty fancy, huh? Visit the website here for more pictures and details!

This Durango can seat seven, offers Best-in-Class 25 hwy mpg, and has an 8-speed automatic transmission.

When I was test driving the Durango, I could definitely feel that 8-speed transmission. It was powerful, but at the same time it was such a smooth ride. Sometimes SUVs can feel "too big" to me when driving, but this one didn't. I was so impressed with the overall look inside the car (the touchscreen has every option you could ever want), and I felt like I was driving such a classy car.

Two of my favorite features in the Durango are the vented seats (so cool!) and the exclusive Blu-rayTM Entertainment Center. Who wouldn't love those things?

 
 {when in reverse these arrows pop up literally guiding you out-really cool!}

Another thing I noticed was how much storage the Durango provided. Perfect for those of you who have kids. There were multiple areas in it that you could open up (like the middle center console in the backseat) to find more storage that I never imagined it having. Definitely a huge perk.


The service we had was outstanding, too. I have to say thank you to Frank (from Crown dealership in Dublin at Perimeter) who was so knowledgeable, answered all of our questions, and the best part was that we could tell he is really passionate about his job.


If you want more detailed information, or to see more pictures, visit the website here

While you're at it, you can take a look at the other awesome cars they have available so you can fall in love and have a plan for your next car purchase! ;) We were able to catch a glimpse of the Dodge Dart while we were at the dealership, and I hear this is a really popular car right now...



I believe it was rated best-in-class interior with the roominess of a mid-size sedan. Dodge has really stepped its game up lately, don't you think?

Now for some really awesome news. Today, there is a $100 Gas Gift Card up for grabs!

All you have to do is answer this question below in the comments section to be entered for your chance to win:

Which Dodge vehicle would you most like to take for a spin?

Good luck! I know I would love to win $100 to go towards gas this holiday season!

  1. The Durango was at the top of my list when it came to getting a new car this fall. I ultimately settled on the Ford Explorer instead, but only because if I couldn't have all the bells & whistles (the Citadel), I didn't want one at all. I still looooove the Durango, though! We have a Charger also and love it!

  2. The Dodge Dart because it looks stylish and sporty but still have tons of room which is the best of both worlds! I don't necessarily need a new car but it's always fun to look at some options and this have given me a few more to add to the mix!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I believe that I would choose the Durango as well- so luxurious! I commute everyday though, so I get limited on options because I need good gas mileage!!

    ReplyDelete
  4. The durango! Esp. if someone is giving me gas cards! :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. If I could drive any Dodge it would have to be a '69 Dodge Charger R/T! Keepin it old school!

    ReplyDelete
  6. We have a '12 Charger and I LOOOOVE it, but I'm an SUV girl, so I have been eyeing these since we drove the Charger off the lot. As soon as the Charger is paid off (and becomes my husband's toy), I'll be bringing a Durango home! They are absolutely gorgeous, and I love all the options my Charger has... I can't wait to have them in SUV form!

  7. The 2014 Durango is totally my favorite! I love all of the features and the sleekness!!

  9. I'm loving the new Durango! I have a 2005 model and would love to upgrade!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I work for Toyota so I should probably not be participating, but $100 in gas in just too good to not pass up! :)

    I like SUVs so I would totally take the Durango for a test drive!! Maybe in a pearly white color :)

  16. I wouldn't mind a Durango. Especially since I know they win in collisions after my sisters truck was hit with one :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Entering into the mommy world soon (like 10 days soon!) I've thought about getting an SUV, and I'll have to say that I didn't think Dodge Durango was in the running, until I saw their newly designed SUV. I'd love to go test drive one to see all of the great features you're talking about!

    ReplyDelete
  18. That's such a cool opportunity! I'd love to test drive a Challenger!
