Chrysler has officially begun production of its all-new 2011 Dodge Durango. Like its Jeep Grand Cherokee platform mate, the Dodge Durango is built at Chrysler’s Jefferson North Assembly Plant just outside of Detroit.

The Durango officially ended production after the 2009 model year, but rejoins the Dodge lineup as a three-row crossover for 2011. As previously mentioned, the 2011 Durango shares its underpinnings with the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and is available with a 3.6L V6 or a 5.7L V8.

Dodge says the 2011 Durango is 25 percent stiffer than its predecessor, making for a better on-road driving experience. When properly equipped, the Durango is capable of towing up to 7,400 pounds.

The Durango is slated to arrive in Dodge dealerships in the coming weeks, carrying an MSRP of $29,195, not including a $850 destination charge. A base all-wheel drive model will carry a price tag of $31,195.
