2017 Dodge Durango Expert Rundown Review

Want a lot of versatility and verve in your crossover SUV? The 2017 Dodge Durango might be a good match. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.

SPEAKER 1: I'm Editor Travis Langness and this is Edmunds Expert Rundown of the 2017 Dodge Durango. The 2017 Dodge Durango is back with just a few minor changes for this year, mostly just trim level stuff. It has a base v-6 and rear wheel drive which is sufficient but not very lively. We recommend upgrading to the V8. It's got impressive acceleration. And also the Durango overall has really good off road capability. It's got good towing capability especially with that optional V8. It's got a comfortable highway ride. It's a pretty heavy vehicle. But actually that heaviness lends to it being good on the highway. It feels pretty hunkered down, nice and quiet. It does have some pretty basic interior materials quality. It's not the top of the class. But it does have a really spacious third row and a big friendly touch screen in the front, UConnect touch screen that we're really big fans of. We think it's one of the best in the class. Unfortunately, on the base model, Bluetooth isn't standard. You do have to upgrade to get that which is kind of a weird missing feature for the class. But this is like we said one of the most adult friendly third rows in the class. It definitely is road trip worthy. There's a little bit of limited cargo space behind it in the trunk there. But when you fold down the second and third row, there's a lot of space back there to load all sorts of lumber, tools, whatever you need in the back. Up front, we've got that UConnect screen again, super user friendly, easy to learn, and definitely a lot of good controls and buttons, super responsive as well. Bottom line, the 2017 Dodge Durango is rugged, capable, and surprisingly spacious. I would definitely recommend checking it out despite its relative age in the segment. But be sure to look at the CX 9 from Mazda, the Toyota 4Runner, and also the Chevy Tahoe. For more Edmunds Expert Rundowns, click the link to subscribe.
