Dodge Durango


The original 1998 Dodge Durango SUV, like many SUVs of that era, was based on a pickup truck, in this case the mid-size Dodge Dakota. The result was a traditional body-on-frame SUV with an available third-row seat. The Durango aimed for a gap in the market between the larger Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon twins and the smaller Ford Explorer and Chevrolet Blazer. A 2004 redesign resulted in a larger Durango that still ran on a separate frame, but Dodge said it was no longer based on a pickup. After gas prices soared and the economy soured, the Durango and closely related Chrysler Aspen were dropped in 2009. It wasn’t gone long, though, and the current Dodge Durango is based on the new-for-2011 model. This third-generation Durango switched to unitized construction and shared some underbody hardware with the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
