2015 Dodge Durango

Pros: Overall road manners and maneuverability are superior to most large SUVs; V6 engine delivers good highway fuel economy for a vehicle of this size and heft; comfortable, nicely finished cabin

Cons: Not quite as spacious as other large SUVs; thirsty in city driving, especially with available Hemi V8

CG Says: After a round of significant changes for 2014, the Dodge Durango sees only minor tweaks for 2015. Availability of the Rallye Appearance Package and Blacktop Package has been expanded to more trim levels, and a 10-speaker “Beats by Dr. Dre” branded audio system will be standard on Durango R/T and available on Citadel and Limited models. The Durango has something for just about every type of large-SUV shopper. The base SXT has a lot of features for the money, while Limited and Citadel add worthwhile luxury and convenience items. We’re not especially high on the sporty R/T, but we can see its appeal for those who crave brawny style and maximum performance. And, the Rallye trim package brings the V8-powered R/T’s sporty looks to a more affordable V6 model.
