Expert Quotes:

All-wheel-drive Hemi versions will have a low-range transfer case.
Car and Driver

R/T will feature stickier tires along with an 0.8-inch lower ride height and Nivomat load-leveling shock absorbers in the rear
Edmunds' Inside Line

While the interface is functional, it certainly looks and feels older than the better integrated systems offered by the competition.
Automobile Magazine

Dodge even goes so far as to claim that the Durango doesn't have a base model, suggesting that the entry-level Express trim is equal to or better than other brands' mid-range trims.
TruckTrend

The audio controls suffer some undue complication when paired with Chrysler's Uconnect multi-media interface.
Consumer Guide

With the 2011 Durango, Dodge now has a mid-size utility vehicle that's up-to-date not only with respect to comfort and convenience features, but connectivity and infotainment features as well.

The base Durango Express is priced just below $30,000 and includes air conditioning; power windows, locks and mirrors; an AM/FM/CD player; remote start; tilt/telescope steering wheel; and three-row seating. Satellite radio is also standard, but Bluetooth is an option and upgrades like power seats, seat heating, push-button start and a power telescoping steering wheel are not offered.

With the R/T comes a standard vinyl-and-suede seat (another detail shared with the GL-Class); 20-inch wheels; Bluetooth; a hard drive for music storage; and the HEMI V-8. A Durango Crew model adds on roof rails; a cargo cover; memory presets for seating and key fobs; rear parking sensors and the rearview camera. At the very top of the Durango pile is the Citadel model; for about $42,000 it bundles almost every option and feature including a sunroof; blind-spot monitors; adaptive cruise control; a Garmin navigation system; and a heated steering wheel. The HEMI V-8 is an option on Crew and Citadel models; so is Sirius Backseat TV and a more rugged towing package.

Conclusion

Priced at $10k or more below comparable luxury SUVs, and well-equipped, the 2011 Dodge Durango is a strong value.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
