Durango sxt with v6. Great ride and comfort. Peppy for such a big vehicle. Our 4th durango and love them. My wife and 3 kids were in a bad accident last week and had a front collision and rolled 3 times. Everyone walked away with just some seat belt bruising. Very safe vehicle. We will be buying another as soon as the insurance check comes in. Very happy with dodge.

Traded in a Yukon XL for this vehicle, brand new. Love it. Only issue is I'm leary about it hydroplaning on wet roads or slushy roads. I didn't notice that with my Yukon, but the Yukon was a lot heavier vehicle. Interior of ours has chrome trim, which makes it blinding when the sun hits it just right. I usually keep a small towel in inside during summer months to cover this and stop the problem. Overall, a great vehicle. Seats 7, plenty of storage room and tons of leg room in the 2nd row seats. Great gas mileage. We purchased this through Nemaha Valley Motors in Seneca, KS and they go above and beyond to get you the vehicle in the color and options you want!

Bought a used 2013 Dodge Durango crew, and fell in love after 100 miles. the ride is near perfect, the v6 has plenty of power, and I'm big enough so people don't cut me off when driving on the highway. And my wife loves the back seat.

Our two first reguirements were that it had to have 3 rows of seats, cloth seats and backup camera. After looking at all the different make and models we liked the Dodge Durango the best. Two items that we didn't get that now we should have but weren't in our package was the blind spot camera and the second was power seats.

Our 3rd durango. 04,09, now 2012. THIS IS THE BEST ONE YET. Its just the right size for our family of 5. we need the AWD for our snow trips (we just wave at the chain check folks). the v6 has plenty of power, 22mpg. The CREW is a good balance between features and cost. (didnt need the front radar and chrome mirrors). We really like the Italian inspired interior. it turns out Daimler mercedes engineered the running gear (nice job). (I think its the "G" series), then Fiat designed the interior. We got the 2nd row bucket seats so its a 6 seater (recommend). The only reason for the Hemi would be to tow something larger than a jet-ski, the new vvt V6 does a good job and gets way better mileage. Hold out for the 2014 with 8-speed transmission. it will get at least 3mpg better.

Great vehicle not so great gas mileage

by from on June 21, 2013

Love my Durango overall but wish it got better gas mileage. But I guess that is the price you pay for a v8 engine and interior space.

Excellent SUV!

2012 3.6L V6 5-speed trans. SXT, 18,000 miles so far. 27 mpg @ 70 mph on the freeway, a/c ON., with cruise control on. Plenty of torque which kicks in around 50 mph. The tranny falls over it's feet at low revs - unless you use a lead right foot which isn't always possible. Chrysler Corp. slapdash on the one recall so far, an inspection found no problems but the fix is not complete until a water shield for the part is installed. No sign of it yet; the recall was announced May 2014. It's a pretty high vehicle to climb into and the front seats are well within the body frame so you have to allow for that extra distance when entering & exiting. But it is actually fun to drive - for an SUV - sticks to the road cornering and rides very nicely.

Nice exterior styling, comfortable interior with all the bells and whistles, 350 growling horses, oversized wheels, sport suspension, cornering like a sports car, under $40K, what more could you ask for. This is my third Dodge with a Hemi including a 2005 Durango SE and a 2006 Charger R/T Daytona limited edition Top Banana. Reliability has been great, Dodge stands behind their vehicles, and the thrill of engaging the big V8 engines keeps the fun in driving.

My last vehicle was a 2002, so i'am still trying to figure out all the options-thus the "spaceship". Luv it so far... Miss my V8 and that punch, but the gas mileage should make it worth my while. It's gracious in space without driving a mongrel parking intimidator. I love that it feels small but gives my my big space needs! The gadgets are cool, the interior could be more attractive. My Jeep seemed much more luxurious aside from the gadgets and technology in the spaceship. It's performed well so far, we will see how it tows here shortly.
