I had to seriously duck to get in the cabin

TheCarConnection.com notes some mixed reactions to 2008 Dodge Durango comfort levels.

Cars.com reports the Durango "can hold up to seven occupants when equipped with three rows of seats," adding that a "five-person configuration is also offered." ConsumerGuide says that Dodge 2008 "headroom and legroom are generous, even beneath the housing of the optional sunroof. It's easy to find a comfortable driving position." Automotive.com says these 2008 Dodge "front seats are comfortable, neither too soft nor too firm." The middle-row seats are fine, but in the similar Chrysler Aspen, ConsumerGuide complains that at best, the "3rd row...can accommodate adults for short trips."

Cars.com reports "cargo volume behind the third row is 19 cubic feet," growing to "102.4 cubic feet when both rear seats are folded down." According to Cars.com, the identical cargo area in the Chrysler Aspen (also sharing the Durango body) is "a bit less than the Ford Expedition and Chevy Tahoe, which both have around 110 cubic feet." ConsumerGuide adds "liftover is relatively low, and the tailgate opens at floor level for easy loading...[with] plenty of in-cabin storage, including a deep center console and useful console tray."

Edmunds was not nearly so impressed with this Dodge's interior quality, describing a "subpar fit and finish inside." Mother Proof reports that ergonomics are somewhat lacking as well, particularly when it comes to ingress and egress: "I had to seriously duck to get in the cabin...I always wound up either grazing my head on the doorjamb or just plain making a sloppy entrance." ConsumerGuide is carefully neutral here: 2008 Dodge Durango "cabin materials are neither fancy nor exceptionally cheap looking...despite some lightweight plastic pieces, most everything appears durable and looks appropriate for the price."

ConsumerGuide also notes reasonable noise levels for this Dodge 2008: "engines are quiet at idle and growl under acceleration...no noticeable tire whine."

Conclusion

The 2008 Dodge Durango's interior is smaller than its rivals, while interior quality is lower.

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.
