The 2003 Dodge Durango R/T is a fitting
departure for a class of SUV that has
completely stumped the comptitors. In
short, and SUV/Sports Car with an
excellant engine conbination of HP (250
stock - 295 expandable @ 3800-4000 RPM)
and torque (350 - 380 @ 3000RPM). No
other vehicle in it's class can touch
it's performance, comfortable ride, and
looks..... and it rival's even the
large SUV's in internal comfort and
amentities. With a towing capacity of
7000#, there's not much I can't do.
With 2003 being the final year for the
R/T (welcome the 2004 5.7 Hemi
Durango), this model is destine to
become a classic.
Engine power coupled with the R/T rear
end makes for an instant start from
stop without the slightest slip.
Another plus is the easily maintained
5.9L engine, with the simple addition
of almost 50HP, it's all you would ever
need in this rig.
