2007 Dodge Durango Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
A V-6 and two Magnum V-8 engines are offered, topped by the famed 5.7-liter Hemi. The Hemi V-8 features a Multi-Displacement System that shuts down half the cylinders when they're not needed, which Dodge says improves gas mileage by up to 20 percent.

An electronic stability system and side curtain airbags are standard for 2007. A new grille, hood, front fenders and headlights are present, but the Durango looks much like it did last year. SLT models have standard YES Essentials seat fabric that Dodge claims is stain-, odor- and static-resistant. SLT and Limited models have a standard tire pressure monitoring system.


Exterior
Dodge promotes the Durango's "broad-shouldered presence," starting with a familiar crosshair grille. The SUV features short front and rear overhangs, a dramatically sloped windshield and what Dodge calls "powerful" wheel arches. Silver tubular side steps go on the Adventurer model. Durangos have standard 17-inch aluminum wheels, but 18-inch and new 20-inch wheels are also available. The exterior mirrors are larger for 2007.

Interior
Durangos can hold up to eight occupants when equipped with three rows of seats. A five-person configuration is also offered. Newly optional for 2007 are bucket seats for the second row.

Cargo volume behind the third row is 19 cubic feet; that space grows to 102.4 cubic feet when both rear seats are folded down. Second-row occupants get reclining seats, and an optional DVD entertainment system is available...

Durangos can hold up to eight occupants when equipped with three rows of seats. A five-person configuration is also offered. Newly optional for 2007 are bucket seats for the second row.

Cargo volume behind the third row is 19 cubic feet; that space grows to 102.4 cubic feet when both rear seats are folded down. Second-row occupants get reclining seats, and an optional DVD entertainment system is available. Reversible slush mats are included in the Adventurer model, which has a rubberized, washable cargo liner. A navigation system is available.


Under the Hood
The base engine is a 210-horsepower (estimated), 3.7-liter V-6. A 4.7-liter V-8 that produces an estimated 235 hp and 300 pounds-feet of torque is optional, and it can run on ethanol-based E85, regular unleaded gasoline or a combination of the two. Durango buyers can also choose a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 that cranks out an estimated 335 hp and 370 pounds-feet of torque.

A four-speed automatic transmission teams with the V-6, but V-8 models drive a five-speed automatic. Durangos come with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. Dodge promises up to 8,950 pounds of towing capacity when properly equipped.


Safety
All-disc antilock brakes include electronic brake-force distribution. An electronic stability system and roll-sensing side curtain airbags that protect occupants in all rows of seats are standard. Rear parking assist is optional.

Driving Impressions
Steering is lighter than expected, and a comparatively soft suspension translates to an especially comfortable ride. This SUV can get a little woozy through repeated curves.

Handling is less than ideal, even on the expressway, as the Durango is a little too inclined to edge out of its lane. Suspensions differ among the three engine choices, but not dramatically.

Response from the Hemi V-8 is less vigorous than expected. Automatic transmission reactions are better with the V-6, which is a little noisier when pushed. The 4.7-liter V-8 might be a good compromise, but flooring the gas too often results in delayed, modest acceleration.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
