The auto market is swarming with SUVs and crossovers these days, and with all of the available options it’s hard to know how to separate the good from the not-so-good. That’s why it’s important to do one’s research when car shopping. It’s even better if you have a go-to blog to read about the choices out there. Excuse us while we plug in this neon sign. Today, we’re talking about the Dodge Durango.
Let’s get past the fluff and the sale and right to why the 2017 Dodge Durango beats the competition. A quick Google search shows you many reviews for this SUV, and we can’t say we’re surprised when they’re all great. U.S. News gives it an 8.4/10; Car and Driver gives it a 4/5; Edmunds.com gives the Durango a 4.9/5; and KBB gives it a 9.1/10. That’s a whole lot of sources giving the Dodge Durango superb ratings.
U.S. News highlights the powerful V8 option for those that want to tow and haul cargo (7,400 pounds towing capacity). However, if you don’t need to tow, the Dodge Durango has 84.5 cubic-feet of cargo space*. Just look at the picture above, that’s ridiculous. Plus, Uconnect has gotten so good these days, available with Bluetooth connectivity and a Wi-Fi hotspot, and if you consider the available dual-screen Blu-Ray entertainment systems, drivers and passengers can find many ways to be entertained.
