I had a 2002 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition so it was loaded with all the goodies. When I bought the Durango it was SXT model so it doesn't have any of the bells and whistles that the Explorer had but it drives much smoother, faster, and is more comfortable than the Explorer. I regret not getting the Hemi and SLT or Limited edition but I was already at my limit. Cold mornings it's a little sluggish until it gets warm but the past few days of hot weather in Colorado it's fast off the mark!

I wish the front bumper wasn't so big. The 2007 they shortened it. I know it's a V8 but I wish I had better fuel economy. 15 MPG is not good enough!
