2005 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I leased an 05 Durango SLT and this vehicle surpassed all my expectations. I used to drive a 2000 Cherokee, so this was a big jump in size and payment, or so I thought. The ride is exceptionally smooth and does not handle as big as it looks. In fact, I think it's easier to maneuver than my Cherokee. Fuel economy isn't the best, but which SUV's is? And with employee pricing, Iím only paying $100 more a month with nothing out of my pocket. Definitely give it a look. Only dislikes are the 4.7 seems to take a while to get going, so I wish I got the Hemi. Other than that I think itís a great value. Was comparing it to a 4runner and I think it beats it hands down.
Interior is awesome. Smooth ride. Lots of versatility and space. Great incentives this month with employee pricing.
4.7 V8 a little sluggish. Rearview mirrors could be bigger. Fuel economy is less than expected.
