2005 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


We test drove several Trail Blazers and Ford Explorers and of course Dodge Durangos before we chose the Durango. What we noticed is the Durango and the Explorer were much more solid and had more power then the Trailblazer. Since we've owned our Durango we have averaged almost 19 MPG fuel efficiency, not bad for a V8. We have had the opportunity to take it on long and medium trips and we have found it to be very comfortable. We had 5 Adults on a trip of about 1500 miles and it was quite comfortable. We put down one side of the Third Row Seat to Store more luggage. We moved from an Ext. Minivan and the lack of storage space behind the 3rd row seat is the one negative for the Durango.

Best Features

The comfotable seats are very nice and the handling of the Durango and power compared to the Explorer and TrailBlazer was very good. The solid construction of the interior and exterior was a nice change.

Worst Features

Slightly extend the length of the vehicle to add more storage space behind the 3rd row seat. Add more space between the 2nd and 3rd row seats.
