Ron Burgundy has been doing his job getting people ready to embrace the Dodge Durango. Now it’s up to the critics to give their opinion on what they think of the new SUV. One such review comes courtesy of the Dupont Registry.
Their brief write-up details that there is a lot to like about the new Dodge Durango. The first impression was in how much more beefy the profile of the Durango looked with the new visual aesthetics added, such as the headlights been made narrower from last year’s models. The biggest surprise, however, came in the build. It’s a larger vehicle being a SUV after all, but as the reviewer noted upon getting into the driver’s seat, “it required much less of a hop than expected for an SUV of its stature.”
The interior gets high-marks as well for being classy and stylish while still remaining comfortable. The navigation and the popular UConnect system were very easy to use. For passengers, they get to enjoy the dual screen Blu-ray entertainment center.
But that’s all the look and feel aspects, what about the engine? The Dodge Durango isn’t going to be considered the type of vehicle one takes out to the racetrack. But a car-savy reviewer on the other hand is more than willing to test it out.
The Dodge Durango has a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine with an eight speed transmission. The reviewers time with the SUV was positive. The engine is strong and the and shifting gears is smooth. The braking is noted to be very strong, an important feature to have in a vehicle marketed to the more family oriented.
The final decision is that the Dodge Durango is the perfect car for the family unit who need a vehicle to take the kids to school, to get away for the weekend, or to take the boat out on the lake.
