2022 Dodge Durango Trim Levels: Which One to Buy

When deciding which of the 2022 Dodge Durango trim levels to purchase, the Durango’s power and hauling ability are among its strongest features. You need to upgrade to at least the R/T trim, which has the powerful V8.

  2. Destroyer Gray
  3. White Knuckle
  4. Redline 2 coat Pearl
