TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Dodge Durango

2015 Dodge Durango Reliability And Durability: Cons
YearComment
2014 We don't yet have enough reliability data for the Dodge Durango, but the refreshed, closely related Jeep Grand Cherokee hasn't been faring well. Blame the new infotainment system, bugs in which apparently can affect everything in the instrument panel. In the tested vehicle, both the audio system and the climate control often behaved oddly. Most likely Chrysler will develop a thorough fix soon. But until then, glitches are likely. Two optional features that were problematic in recent years with the Grand Cherokee, an air suspension and a panoramic sunroof, aren't offered on the Durango. This said, both the Nissan Pathfinder and the Hyundai Sante Fe also required an above average number of repairs in their first model year. Early glitches aren't unique to Dodge. full 2014 Dodge Durango review

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Dodge Durango

2015 Dodge Durango Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
2014 The new-for-2014 eight-speed automatic does its best to wring competitive fuel economy out of the 3.6-liter V6, but the Durango AWD's curb weight, at 5,000 pounds about 600 more than the Pathfinder's, poses an apparently insurmountable handicap. The 2014 Dodge's EPA ratings of 17 mpg city, 24 mpg highway are higher than the 2013's, but only by a single mpg. The Pathfinder, with its lower curb weight and efficiency-boosting continuously variable transmission (CVT), manages 19/25. In my real-world testing the Nissan's advantage seemed at least as large as the EPA ratings suggest. In the suburbs the Dodge's trip computer usually reported averages in the high teens, while the Nissan's reported averages in the low-to-mid 20s. The best suburban average I observed in the Durango was not quite 21, compared to the Nissan's 26. In the Dodge's defense, I tested it in unusually cold weather, so the apples-to-apples difference might be closer to the 12 percent suggested by the EPA city ratings. The Nissan's CVT isn't nearly as much an advantage and the Dodge's extra pounds aren't as much a disadvantage in highway cruising, so I'm not surprised that their EPA highway numbers are closer. It's worth nothing that, while it can't match the Pathfinder, the Durango V6's ratings are much better than the 14/22 of the optional "Hemi" V8. You won't find better numbers in a conventional SUV of this size without the assistance of a diesel engine (offered in the Jeep). full 2014 Dodge Durango review
