Should I Buy the 2015 Dodge Durango?
The 2015 Dodge Durango boasts stylish interior design and comfortable, supportive front seats. Available features like the 8.4-inch touchscreen sweeten the deal.
There are some negatives to consider, though. The Durango's hefty curb weight can be a drag, and the lack of physical buttons for the heated seats and sliding second-row seats hurt the interior versatility of this SUV. We also think backup aids should be standard safety features for a 2015 SUV.
