2018 Dodge Durango review: Our expert's take

What it is: Dodge’s largest SUV, the Durango, competes with the Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Explorer and Honda Pilot. It's available with two or three rows of seats, offers V-6 or V-8 power and is available with rear- or all-wheel drive. A new high-performance Durango SRT with a 475-horsepower V-8 engine joins the lineup for 2018. 

The new Durango SRT is powered by a 475-hp, 6.4-liter V-8 engine that can accelerate the SUV to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds. Maximum towing capacity for the Durango SRT is 8,600 pounds.

New standard features include a sport steering wheel with shift paddles, a new gear selector with a manual-shift mode, a backup camera and a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system. SUVs with the available 8.4-inch touchscreen add Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Front parking sensors are now available.

Great car so far

Dodge Durango GT with towing package. Great SUV for the money. we currently have 34000 miles and no major issues so far. Our Uconnect system had to be replaced because it would not update. Was covered under warranty. We tow a 5000lb travel trailer and it does fine on the flats , but struggles a bit in the mountains. I was impressed how all the operating temperatures were in check while pulling a 7% grade on a 95 degree day. (I have since bought a Ram 1500 to do the towing). This car is an excellent road tripper and I am impressed with the spunk of the 3.6. So far the only weak link has been the Uconnect system. I hope it holds up for the duration of the vehicle.


Very nice and comfortable

Love it rides great sport mode is fun love the leather and sun roof and works with my son's wheel chair and all the options are a plus


The best car of I have ever purchased

This car had less than 23,000 miles. I purchased an awesome car. The drive is smooth and relaxing. I would recommend a Dodge Durango to anyone.
