I had a 2007 Ford Explorer fully loaded, loved it except for horrid fuel mileage from a weak V-6, i found out me and my wife were expecting twins and it was time to get a vehicle with a third row. We bought our bright red Durango R/T with the 5.7 litre V-8. This SUV is big and its crazy fast!! Catchs all the looks and gets alot of compliments. Great stereo! Plenty of power passing or merging on the highway. Even smoking some young punk in his V-6 mustang or the guy next to you at the stoplight in his truck ;-) Every feature you could ask for, four heated bucket seats, and a third row that folds revealing a ton of hauling space. Get this guys, not a minivan!
Big power, awesome sound, and decent mileage out of the big V-8. Optional upgraded stereo is phenominal with a factory ten inch subwoofer and a ton of quality speakers. Love the heated front and rear seats. AWD is amazing in the deep snow of North Dakota. Tons of storage space. Great exhaust notes!! Very comfortable vehicle for long rides, i rode from ND to SC and back and never got sick of the ride! Remote start a great feature and 120volt household plugin is so great for pluggin in computers and whatever goodies you may want!!
Would like to see an SRT-8 model with the 6.4 litre hemi. Can never have to much power and speed ;-)
