The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
6.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Dodge Durango is the anti-crossover, especially with the HEMI and R/T trim, and if the world still sanctioned big SUVs for small families, the Durango would be elbowing its way to driveways everywhere. The 2011 Nissan Pathfinder is a workhorse SUV that also offers decent comfort and an impressive feature set.
