2018 Dodge Durango Citadel

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: For 2018, Dodge Durango adds a high-performance SRT model with a 475-horsepower 6.4-liter V8 and sport suspension. Dodge says the SRT is capable of accelerating 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds. All models now have a standard rearview camera and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The Durango is a large crossover SUV that is available with three rows of seating. The base engine is a 290-hp 3.7-liter V6 and a 360-hp 5.7-liter is also available. All engines, including the SRT 6.4-liter V8, are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available on models, except SRT where all-wheel drive is standard. Available features include autonomous emergency braking, lane-departure warning, blind-spot alert, adaptive cruise control, Wi-Fi hotspot, heated/ventilated front seats, and tri-zone automatic climate controls. 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 GT 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 high performance. The SRT adds even more performance and useful suspension upgrades.
