2011 Dodge Durango Citadel Black & Tan
Both the Durango and Explorer were aging, and not gracefully, but now each nameplate has a new lease on life. Both are unibody construction with new more fuel-efficient powertrains. Each of these large CUVs offer three rows of seating as standard equipment, along with more cubbies than you'll ever need.
The Durango offers V-6 and V-8 engine options, while the Explorer currently offers a V-6 engine, and an Ecoboost four-cylinder engine will be offered later this year. The Explorer has traded off-road capability and some towing capacity for a more compliant ride and more interior room. The Durango also traded away some off-road capability but retains the higher towing capability due to its V-8 engine. Does this matter to consumers?
