The Big SUV for People Who Don't Like Big SUVs

In the land of midsize SUVs, the Dodge Durango is the toughest kid on the block. The only one to offer available V8 power also sports the segment's boldest look, punctuated by an in-your-face grille. An impressive infotainment array notwithstanding, the Durango isn't quite as family friendly as some of its competitors.

Driving It

"On the road, the Durango's size and weight are evident, but its rear-wheel-drive (RWD) setup and carefully tuned suspension make the Durango one of the sportier SUVs on the market. Ride quality is quite good on the SXT, Citadel and Limited trims, but gets a bit stiff in the R/T." Find out more in our 2015 Dodge Durango full review.

Hauling Mass

As the only midsize SUV to offer an available V8 engine, the Dodge Durango is an especially appealing choice for those who tow but don't want all the bulk of a full-size SUV. With 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque, the Durango's Hemi V8 delivers 7,400 pounds of pulling power.

What the People Say

KBB.com reader and two-time Dodge Durango owner Jerry concludes that the current-generation Durango offers "performance, ride and quality far improved over older Durango designs." Read more Dodge Durango consumer reviews.

The 2015 Dodge Durango starts right around $30,000 and can reach sticker prices in the neighborhood of $50,000 for a fully loaded, all-wheel drive, HEMI V8-equipped Citadel model.
