Expert Quotes:

With both rear rows stowed, there's room to haul a six-foot sofa with the tailgate closed.

a swank soft-touch and chrome-trimmed interior

feels steady and controlled over bumps and ruts that would have had the old truck bouncing and fumbling to regain its composure
Edmunds' Inside Line

Exceptionally soft armrests, supportive seats, and good visibility keep driver and passengers comfortable.
Automobile Magazine

You have to clear a tall rear bumper when loading luggage, but the third row folds easily into the floor to expand the cargo area to 47.7 cubic feet.

Even from its side profile, the 2011 Dodge Durango looks a lot more passenger-friendly than the version it replaces. Though the new Durango isn't as large as full-size SUVs like the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, it's about the same size as some of the larger crossovers like the Ford Flex or GMC Acadia. With a 119.8-inch wheelbase, the Durango is 75.8 inches wide, and has 84.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front seats. Those dimensions are also very close to those of the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, with which it's related.

And inside, the Durango is notably comfortable and refined—especially for a vehicle without a luxury badge. The driving position in the Durango is excellent, with a nice, upright vantage point, and the seats are supportive and comfortable. The second rows boast adult-size space and comfort, while the third row is, as in most vehicles, tight and rather difficult to get to—even though it could be pressed into duty for small adults. The seating arrangements, down to the flip-fold features of the third-row headrests, are strikingly similar to those in the Mercedes.

While interior appointments tend to be somewhat simple and straightforward, trims and materials feel a step up from those in most other Chrysler products. Ride quality is firm yet nicely damped, and you get an ever-present sense of its 5,000-pound-plus heft.

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.
