About Dodge Durango

With the capabilities of a full-size SUV like the Chevy Tahoe, but the smaller package of a Honda Pilot, the 2018 Dodge Durango occupies a unique spot in the modern SUV market. With V8 power -- including an all-new SRT model with 475 horsepower -- the Durango can tow with the big boys, up to 8,600 pounds. Yet the size and interior both target smaller crossover SUVs like the Honda Pilot, Chevrolet Traverse and Toyota Highlander. Prices span from about $31,000 for a base model, all the way up to the $65,000 for the Durango SRT. That's not cheap, but there's nothing else on the market that combines the kind of 3-row capability, family-friendly utility, and high performance at that price.

"Purchased 2011 Citadel at end of model year and found a great deal. Prior to driving this automobile, Dodge/Jeep were at the bottom of my wish list. The vehicle is loaded with options. I could not find anything even close in other large SUVs for the price. Great for family with kids and for parents not ready for a minivan. Plenty of room even for adults in the 2nd and 3rd row seating. Entertainment system is very worthwhile for people with children. Much more comfortable ride than similar large SUVs. Safety features are wonderful. Only downside is it is a bit slow in accellerating from a stop (V6 engine). Not so much of an issue between 50-70 mph. Handles very well in winter weather as well."

"The Durango is a very capable vehicle. The 8 speed auto shifts smoothly but the rotary dial takes some time to get used to. Full time/automatic AWD, so if you want to choose then you should get the Grand Cherokee. Impressive highway fuel mileage (26 mpg observed) but it drops off quick in the city. Still not bad though. The race track tail lights are cool. The reconfigurable dash is also pretty unique."

"Before the Durango I had an Infinity FX 35 and a GMC Acadia. This Durango has them beat. The engineering and the features are the greatest and work flawlessly. It's a dream to own."
