The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
Call it the anti-crossover: the Dodge Durango does SUV dirty work, but carries itself like a civilized family wagon. The brawny 2012 Toyota 4Runner targets off-road purists who sometimes need to haul the family—and it's better on the highway than you might think.
