Reviewed: 2007 Dodge Durango

4dr SUV 235-horsepower 4.7L V8 5-speed automatic AWD

Why the 2007 Dodge Durango?

Front seat room

With the power adjustable front seat, both myself (at just over 6 feet tall) and my wife (5 foot 5) can find plenty of leg room. The additional seat width is appreciated for me (over our past viechle) as I have long arms & need more elbow room than most.

Rear seat room & comfort

With a growing family, we needed 3 rows of seats that can actually haul people of normal size. It seems the 3rd row of some SUVs are made for 10 year olds. This viechle fits 8 people in a pinch, 7 comfortably.

Powertrain performance

Decent power, good fuel mileage for an 8 passenger viechle, and living in the country, we needed 4wd to handle muddy unpaved roads. Flex fuel capability is a plus for us, as it is readily available, and about 90 cents cheaper than regular.

Safety & braking

Best brakes of any viechle I ever owned. Good feel, and powerful. Ours has front seat and side airbags. The awd system & traction control adds a margin of safety for our often muddy & snow covered unpaved roads.

Handling

Handles well for a big viechle, and turns surprisingly short. You will never forget how big it is, but nimble for its size. Visibility is also pretty good.

Why Not the 2007 Dodge Durango?

Fuel economy

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.

Feature availability

It was hard to find one with the exact features I wanted. One package had a few things lacking, and the next package up had more bells & whistles than I wanted. Since we bought a certified used one, we were stuck with what we could find.
