I have driven a Mercedes ML-350 for the past two years and when I found out that the Durango is built on the same platform (a leftover from when Daimler owned Chrysler, splitting in mid-2008), I had to test drive it.
It has the same exact quality, fit and finish, road feel, and many of the same features of the ML-350. Except the price tag!
The vehicle looks great, is amazingly quiet, plushly appointed - and yet manly.
The optional 3rd row seat with middle row captains chairs give the interior that convenient and huge mini-van feeling - yet you're not subjected to actually driving a mini-van.
I have driven so many vehicles and this is, hands-down, my favorite ever.
Fit and finish, quality, road feel, interior styling.
