About Dodge Durango

The SUV holds a popular spot in the driveways and garages of America thanks to its passenger, cargo and towing capabilities. The 2016 Dodge Durango nails those high points, and adds big SUV capability in a package that's smaller than a Chevy Tahoe. The comfortable interior works for hauling people and cargo, and the 2016 Durango looks great inside and out, with a choice of five different models that help make it more dynamic than a Honda Pilot or GMC Acadia. This year, the powerful V6 gets start/stop technology to help fuel economy, while the V8 soldiers on with a 7,400-pound towing capacity. Interior features include a newly upgraded Uconnect infotainment system, and options like the 10-speaker Beats by Dre audio system.

"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 generally an excellent large SUV. The high points: excellent gas mileage for such a large vehicle (our experience in mixed driving is 19-23 mpg), control and handling on icy roads is excellent, it provides a soft and quite road on the highway, seats are comfortable, power is adequate, the front screen is larger than its competitors, UConnect system is generally good, stereo is good except for a flaw in the programming mentioned below. Lows: The soft ride can be uncomfortable in mountain driving-too much body roll, the programming of the stereo volume is flawed - if you turn the level to less than 10 the sound is all bass with no treble, auto headlight diming works poorly, limited storage space in the front for nick-nacks, voice module does not always work as well as it should. Grade B+/A-"

Pros: "Good value, good fuel mileage, right size for most"

Cons: "Looks plain/boring/dull in white"

"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."
