You'll either love or hate the 2008 Dodge Durango's looks, if the opinions of reviewers from across the Web are any indication.

Cars.com points out this 2008 Dodge's "short front and rear overhangs, a dramatically sloped windshield and what Dodge calls 'powerful' wheel arches" that give it a "broad-shouldered presence." Several sources consulted by TheCarConnection.com use the typical masculine adjectives for the 2008 Dodge Durango. Automotive.com calls it "Big and brawny...forceful expression...the look of a big-rig truck." They also say that history buffs who remember the U.S. Army's T-214 4x4 truck of World War II--also built by Dodge--may note a resemblance between that and this Dodge. Mother Proof agrees on this 2008 Dodge's similarity to a "big rig," but suggests that such a likeness is not necessarily a plus. This source comments that the 2008 Dodge goes beyond the "big-rig" look, taking more after a railroad boxcar.

Interior "details are carefully thought out," says Automotive.com, adding that "instrumentation is clean, handsome, easy to read and easy to operate...simple and utilitarian." According to Cars.com, 2008 Dodge Durango "SLT models have standard YES Essentials seat fabric that Dodge says is stain-resistant." The only other specific comment comes from Kelley Blue Book: "The handsome dash is clean, simple."

Conclusion

The 2008 Dodge Durango's styling makes an impression--in a big, hulking way.

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.
