2002 Dodge Durango SLT 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


After 10 years in an Explorer I thought
I'd try the Durango - I'm pleasantly
surprised. It rides like a truck - but
then it is a truck - so you get what
you bought! It's tough and powerful -
plenty of torque and a strong bottom-
end performer. The 4 wheel drive
system is the best I've ever
experienced - easy to engage/disengage
and quiet. Good power curve and
comfortable shift pattern. It looks
good and performs even better. I'll be
keeping my Durango as long as I did my
Explorer, maybe longer!

Best Features

I like the strong bottom-end performance. Off the line it really gets with the program. Evidently it has a small diameter torque converter that really helps move the big machine in the lower RPM range.

Worst Features

A little more driver leg room would be helpful. I'm a big man, 6'3" - 275lbs. & I feel a little cramped. Maybe just a little more seat adjustment space is all that's needed.
