Dodge Durango Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
2006 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). see full Dodge Durango review

Mileage is actually pretty good for an 8 person hauler, but compared to our old 5 passenger SUV we are giving up 2-3 MPG. Will know more after a couple more fill-ups for sure. see full Dodge Durango review

Fuel economy literally sucks!! I guess it's the price you pay for driving a big vehicle with all-wheel drive. I also own a new GMC 4x4 quad cab truck with a 6 liter engine. My truck gets better fuel economy than my 3.6 liter Traverse. Maybe I just got stuck with a lemon. I'm told that fuel economy is supposed to get better once the engine gets more km's on it. I doubt it will improve very much at all to notice any savings at the pump. see full Chevrolet Traverse review
