I bought my 2006 Dodge Durango while Chrysler offered $5,000 off or 0% financing (actually the $5,000 off was the better deal with it being financed elsewhere). I love the truck. It is very capable in 4wd and offers plenty of power. I also love the sound of the V8. Nothing sounds better than a V8. I recently drove through the mountains of VA and WVA and was very pleased with how much power the Durango had. The only downer was I only got 18mpg on the trip. If you don't mind spending a little extra on gas, this is a great vehicle!!
The power and the capability of the 4wd system.
Better gas mileage. Turn the 4.7L V8 engine into a multidisplacement engine like the 5.7L Hemi. I think it would help the gas mileage.
