2005 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


I much prefer the newer lines of the Durango (late 2004/2005/2006 models). After the looks, the saleman sold it to me by simply telling me to put the power down. I bought the 4.7L V8 and it's great. The power in the mid-range is awesome (especially in tow/haul mode) but can be lazy to shift down at lower speeds. The ride is the smoothest I've known. It's a fantastic road trip car, with plenty of room and it cruises like it's on air. The large size isn't all that bad, as it manouvers reasonably well - and with over 100 cubic feet of luggage space it was invaluable for our recent house move! I highly recommend the towing package as it comes with larger wing mirrors.

Best Features

Power, comfort, looks, seating for all the family.

Worst Features

The hybrid engine ought to be exciting if it improves fuel economy. The front pillars can impede visibility and the rearview mirror could be larger.
