2001 Dodge Durango Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

Review

This vehicle has performed outstanding service as a daily driver to/from work, a family hauler for me, wife and four children, and long distance road cruiser. We take use the Durango on three to five road trips per year of 500-900 miles one way. When pulling a 12 foot U-Haul trailer full of luggage, bikes, water sports gear over the Appalachians to Virginia the 5.9L V8 barely notices the load. The car is comfortable on highway even when loaded with 6 people. The safety and confidence associated with the full time 4WD with its full time four wheel torque split has proven itself in midwest thunder downpours, Appalachain rain/fog/sleet, and Wisconsin snow.

Favorite Features

Full time 4x4 has all four wheels drive continously rather than driving 2 wheels until there is slip - so slipping rarely occurs. The high torque 5.9L engine provides great acceleration and towing capability. The passenger compartment seats 7 w/3rd row up and lots of cargo space w/3rd row folded.

Suggested Improvements

The stock Goodyear RTS tires were poor. I replaced them with BF Goodrich LongTrail TAs in summer and Bridgestone Blizzaks in winter. I recently put on a Magnaflow exhaust and KNN air intake for noticable improvements in low RPM power. I added a satellite radio head since this was not an option.
