The Durango is a fantastic vehicle and a great value. I bought an '05 model, got a $7K rebate and a very low interest rate. My Durango is an incredibly powerful vehicle that's very comfortable and a joy to drive. I recommend the Durango for anyone who needs a vehicle that handles like a car, can pull a large boat or trailer, seats seven, and (truly) goes off road. In the past 25 years, I've owned a Chevy K5 Blazer, a Suburban, a Ford Explorer, and a Nissan Pathfinder, all were 4x4. I rate the Durango the clear number one with the Pathfinder second, the Ford third and the GM products last. The Durango is number one in the $25-55K price range. Definitely drive one before buying any other SUV.
Power, handling, seating comfort, trailer and off road capabilities, and value.
