GT Plus Vs. R/T: Which 2023 Dodge Durango Fits My Style

The Durango is that muscle SUV that needs no introduction. It strikes the much-needed balance between family hauling and fun. With diverse engine options ranging from a naturally-aspirated V6 to radical supercharged V8s, the Durango is not your regular three-row mid-size SUV.

The Dodge SUV comes in various trim levels with exciting engine options, outstanding towing capacity, and high-end optional packages. This article compares the GT Plus and R/T trim for shoppers looking to lease a budget-friendly 2023 Dodge Durango.

GT Plus

The GT Plus is the Durango’s fourth trim. It adds desirable features like a larger center display with an upgraded infotainment system, leather upholstery, power sunroof, etc. Beneath its hood is the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 295 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. With the V-6, the Durango GT Plus can run from zero to 60mph in 7.4 seconds. Standard features of this model include.

  • 20-inch fine silver aluminum wheels
  • A 10.1-inch touchscreen running the brand’s latest Uconnect 5 infotainment software
  • Wireless charging
  • Heated second-row seats
  • Premium LED fog lamps
  • LED aux low beam and turn signal
  • Black roof rails
  • Leather-trimmed bucket seats
  • Ventilated front seats
  • Power driver / passenger 4-way lumbar adjust
  • Power 8-way driver seat with memory & 8-way passenger seat
  • GPS navigation
  • Power sunroof
  • Adaptive cruise control with stop
  • Full-speed forward-collision warning plus

The GT Plus has a max towing capacity of 6,200 pounds.


The Durango R/T gets fewer top-tier standard features than the GT Plus model; it lacks features like ventilated front seats, premium LED fog lights, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop. However, it makes up for this feature scarcity with a standard 5.7-liter HEMI V8 that makes 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft, and offers improved towing capacity. The V-8 is significantly quicker at 6.2 seconds. Unique features found on the Dodge Durango R/T are as follows.

  • Performance Hood with vents
  • Rain-Sensitive Windshield Wipers
  • An Alpine audio system with nine amplified speakers and a subwoofer
  • Wireless charger
  • The upgraded infotainment system
  • Power sunroof, and more.

The R/T has a max towing capacity of 7,200 pounds.

Both the GT Plus and the R/T employ an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear- or all-wheel drive. Shoppers who want to enjoy more high-end features in the Durango R/T can choose from a myriad of optional features and packages.

In conclusion, the R/T and GT Plus trims both offer essential features, potent engines, and macho looks that will turn heads. Irrespective of which model you opt for, you will always get a good measure of the Durango’s performance and capabilities.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
