2009 Dodge Durango SLT 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned my 09 Durango for two years. I drive allot, about 30K a year. Love the hemi power, I towed my 30 ft camper a couple times but did not like the "swaying". It has all of the power you need to tow 6K-8K lbs. I think the wheel base being short makes the swaying of the trailer a bit worse. If you want a big SUV for allot less than the Tahoe this is it and it will tow more than the Tahoe. The resale values have really tanked since my purchase. I think the used ones are a great deal right now. Get the hemi!


Favorite Features

u connect hands free phone, rear view camera, hemi power!


Suggested Improvements

If Chevy and Ford can continue to make a big SUV Dodge should too! the 2011 Durango is just a remake of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee, common Dodge you can compete with Government Motors (GM). I will need another big SUV soon, I might have to jump to Ford or Chevy. I hope not!

2009 Dodge Durango SLT 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I've had my Durango for about six months now. Its a comfortable machine with good power. I know Edmunds rates it bad, but I didn't want a crossover as I need to tow a 5K boat. It rides fairly well. Gas mileage is a couple miles less then the bigger Tahoe though, but I got this way cheaper then a comparable tahoe.

2009 Dodge Durango Limited HEV 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl gas/electric hybrid 4A)


Review

This was a trade up from the old style Durango for me. The ride is much smoother and it has a lot more room. Driving the hybrid takes a little getting used to but that seems to be some of the fun driving experience.


Favorite Features

Hemi power, but good gas mileage in town


Suggested Improvements

Rear wiper needs to be able to open out fully for ease of window washing. Hybrid needs to be available in less expensive models so more people can afford it.
