5 Tech Features to Opt for in Your Next Dodge Purchase
Dodge vehicles come with a lot of standard equipment and the higher the trim level, the more you get. But some of the available technology options should not be missed. Here are five tech features to opt for on your next Dodge purchase.
Uconnect 4C NAV
Depending on the trim level, the Uconnect 4C NAV system is either standard or optional. It provides the ultimate in connectivity and entertainment. Control the system by the 8.4-inch touch screen or with the integrated voice command with Bluetooth. The GPS navigation system features 3D graphics and one-step voice destination entry.
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay enable you to access all of your smartphone’s features through the infotainment system. You get great sound with HD radio, while the range of stations is expanded with satellite radio. SiriusXM Guardian lets you use your phone to lock and unlock the doors, start the vehicle remotely, send destinations to the car’s navigation system, and more.
Performance Pages App
Available within the Uconnect system for some Dodge models is the Performance Pages app, which puts your vehicle performance stats at your fingertips. Information provided includes timers, G-force, engine performance, and gauges. All the data can be downloaded onto an SD card, USB stick, or, if you have an account, to a website.
The timer feature includes run times, zero to 60 or 100 mph, eighth or quarter mile times, and braking distance. G-Force shows the vehicle dynamics, while Gauges 1 and 2 enables you to download data from the instrument cluster. The Engine tab displays information such as horsepower, torque, oil pressure, current or pending gear, and boost pressure.
Premium Sound System
Whatever kind of music you’re into, you want the best sound reproduction you can get. That’s why Dodge offers premium sound systems for their cars. You could opt for the nine-speaker Alpine audio system with a subwoofer and a 506-watt amplifier that provides superb surround sound.
Alternatively, for optimum concert hall sound quality, the available Harman Kardon audio system features 19 speakers strategically placed around the cabin, including a subwoofer with Logic 7 GreenEdge technology. An 825-watt amplifier ensures that you experience the intense surround sound at its best.
Rear Seat Entertainment System
If you plan to take regular long road trips in the Durango with your family, you should definitely opt for the rear seat entertainment system. With its dual 9-inch high-definition seat back screens and a Blu-ray DVD player, it will keep both movie lovers and gamers happy. Rear seat HDMI and USB ports allow passengers to tap into the system and the screens can be used independently of each other.
Driver Assistance Features
Some driver assistance features are stand-alone options or are included in the Technology Package. Features you don’t want to be without include adaptive cruise control, full-speed collision warning, advanced brake assist, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-path detection, rear parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers, and automatic high beams.
