Driving Impression

When the Durango isn’t showing off its SUV strength by towing a big load, it drives like a crossover, meaning it behaves more like a car. The independent suspension provides a supple and well-damped ride, although there’s some head toss on patchy pavement. The steering is heavy but precise, and the brakes are big and secure for towing.

If you do tow a lot, even though the V6 can do 6200 pounds, the muscular Hemi V8 might be a better choice, for its additional torque; it can tow with the best of them, including some Ram 1500 pickup trucks. The 8-speed transmission works for towing even with its wide ratios.

The 295 horsepower made by the V6 has a lot of weight to push, but the engine is smooth and quiet.

The ride in the SXT and Citadel is firm but supple, while the SRT borders on harsh. And the available 20-inch alloy wheels amplify bad things on pavement. Think twice if frost heaves are big in your town.

That harsh-riding SRT will shoot you from zero to sixty in a Viper-like 4.4 seconds, and on to the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds (certified by the NHRA). With 470 pound-feet of torque, there’s enough pulling power to tie for the lead in the class with 8600 pounds towing. Never mind that the SRT is in a class of two, the other not coincidentally also called SRT, being the Jeep.

Durango’s 8-speed automatic shifts fast, predictable, and buttery smooth. It’s compatible with the V6, Hemi V8, or even the monster SRT, after being strengthened for the rigors.

Walk Around

The Durango is classy, with a muscular nose and boxy profile with soft edges, conservative flat sheetmetal. From the rear, you wouldn’t say it looks like a truck, although you won’t mistake it for anything else. Monochrome trim and a twin exhaust give it some sport.

The R/T and SRT are wider and lower, with sharper front fascia with a lower valence to house a new cold-air duct, and LED fog lamps. It’s a three-slot hood scoop, with a center air inlet duct flanked by heat extractors.

Interior Overview

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Inside, there are no hints of its truck past at all. The tightly sealed cabin is rich but subtle, quiet and refined, feeling like a luxury SUV, like its foreign ancestor the Mercedes ML. The flowing dash is covered in soft-touch materials and displays metallic-ringed gauges and a bright 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen on most models (SXT uses a 5.0-inch touchscreen). The R/T shows off leather upholstery with woven red inserts and red stitching.

Front passengers have it good, with well-bolstered cloth seats and a driving position that works for all sizes. The leather seats are flatter than the cloth, so if you like sporty driving that’s something to consider.

Three adults fit comfortably in the second row, with available captain’s chairs for two individuals, with a low console with one cupholder between them. It’s minimalist. There’s an optional larger console with two cupholders, 12-volt outlet and USB port. We suggest getting it.

Either way, there is a hump on the floor, over the rear-wheel-drive’s driveshaft.

The third-row seat is eminently usable compared to others. It actually fits two adults, although it’s a bit difficult to climb back there. It’s split 50/50 and folds, although not into the floor like the Chrysler Pacifica minivan, which might be a better option if it’s a people-carrier you need more than a tow vehicle. But when the Durango’s second row is folded there’s 84.5 cubic feet of space, room enough for a six-foot couch and a coffee table, or a stack of 10-foot-long two-by-fours.

The rear visibility is hindered by wide roof pillars, so with the SXT, the rearview camera option is a must.

As for the new SRT, it seems to deserve its available high-performance Demonic Red Laguna leather upholstery with carbon-fiber trim.

Summary

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Solid engine, transmission, ride and handling, and excellent cabin and third-row seat. Despite its age, Durango holds its own. However, fuel mileage, if not crash-test ratings, might be a dealbreaker. But never a dealbreaker for the SRT, which we’d take in a heartbeat. It’s less nimble than the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, being longer, but if you need that extra cargo space, it’s the hottest hauler you can buy.
