Powertrains range from a 3.7-liter V6 to a 4.7-liter Magnum V8 and the powerful 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with MDS to boost fuel economy by 20 percent. This year the 3.7-liter six or 4.7-liter eight will burn ethanol or gasoline, or a mixture of the two fuels. And that HEMI MDS V8 applies to a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) Durango or the optional four-wheel-drive (4WD) version with electronic shifting into 4WD high and low range plus all-wheel-drive (AWD) mode.
