The new Dodge Durango ad spots have been released and I have to say, a few of them are actually quite funny. My favorite is The “Ultimate” Commercial where the Durango takes off with the Ford Explorer in tow. Check them out and let us know which ones are your favorite, either in the comment section on here or on YouTube.

Punch Line (Power/Efficiency)

In “Punch Line,” a fuel economist and a horsepower enthusiast are each touting the features of their new vehicles – one can go up to 500 miles on a single tank of gas and the other has a V-6 engine with best-in-class-towing and power. The punch line is that both are driving a new 2011 Dodge Durango, with the award-winning, powerful and fuel-efficient 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine.

The Bad News (Seven-Passenger Seating)

Showcasing Durango’s roomy seven-passenger seating, the spot opens with seven race car drivers running toward the all-new Dodge Durango as the announcer says, “The good news is the new Dodge Durango is a performance SUV that can comfortably seat seven professional drivers. The bad news is, only one of those seven is in the driver’s seat.”

Rhymes With (Luxurious Interior)

Like many high-performance vehicles, the 2011 Dodge Durango has a lavish interior. This spot draws a comparison to a particular high-performance vehicle with a comparable lavish leather interior. (It rhymes with Merrari.)

Responsibility (Towing)

Demonstrating what it means to have best-in-class towing capacity and the ability to tow 7,400 pounds of power, in “Responsibility,” the Durango all at once tows a dirt bike, ATV, motorcycle, boat, jet ski and, even, a competitive SUV. “They say with great power comes great responsibility…The SUV is back.”

Ultimate (Towing: Dodge Durango vs. Competition)

In the world of sport and utility, performance is capability. And what you’re capable of towing is what differentiates the Durango from other crossovers and SUVs. This spot is an actual demonstration of the Durango’s best-in-class towing capability versus a competitive vehicle.

Sensitive (Rain Brake Support)

Towing precious cargo and hauling seven passengers brings a certain level of caution. Therefore it is important to communicate the exclusive features that make these tasks safer and more manageable. The Durango’s Rain Break Support system is one feature that validates safety and security as another important aspect of performance.

Figure 8 (50/50 Weight Distribution, Multi-Link Suspension)

Balance, agility and the ability to handle, are characteristics of the 2011 Dodge Durango that reinforce the “sport” in sport utility. This ad exhibits theDurango’s ability to handle and maneuver in tight spaces because of the unique weight distribution and sporty suspension system.

Gary (AWD Brake Traction Control)

Traveling over off-road terrain is necessary for any true SUV. In “Gary,” theDurango’s AWD Brake Traction Control feature is explained in a way that is easily understood, but still gives validation to the thinking behind the many underlying engineering complexities of this particular feature.

Radar (Adaptive Cruise Control)

What makes one SUV stand out from all others? Is it technology? Is it the ability for said technology to create a more active driving experience? Is it technology called Active Cruise Control that uses radar to anticipate the distance between the SUV and the driver ahead to automatically maintain a safe driving distance? Yes, and the new 2011 Dodge Durango has available Adaptive Cruise Control.

Again, love ’em or hate ’em, don’t be afraid to let us know how you feel about the videos in the comments here or on YouTube. Thanks again or checking out Chrysler Catchall!
