Comfortable, quiet, and while some competitors offer eight belts, it’s usually just a symbolic provision. In fact, the Durango offers more usable passenger space. This is especially true in the third row where adults can actually sit comfortably, is rare. The rear doors are also huge and open almost 90 degrees for easier entry and exit, also assisted by a second row seat flip and fold.
Quality of materials is irrelevant to the thread, that says more about the thread, since there are many soft-touch surfaces to be found and least cheap. It is true that other, more new competitors are nicer while more compelling and attractive to boot. The mechanically related Jeep Grand Cherokee also has a lush interior.

Now, if the weight of Durango is a problem and do not waste any more gas, Hemi V8 could be the way forward. Offers power and towing capacity for the crossover segment of three lines, along with a high degree of courage that would make the muscle in the garage of cars Dodge.
