Car and Driver



Gas mileage isn't too bad in the V-6-powered Dodge Durango, but the combined figure for the V-8 version drops a little for the 2013 model year--and it wasn't very high to begin with.

The EPA rates the Durango V-6 at 16 miles per gallon city, 23 miles per gallon in rear-drive form, or 19 mpg combined. The numbers stay the same when all-wheel drive is specified. Those figures aren't great, but they're competitive with some seven-passenger crossovers with much less off-road capability.

Opt into the HEMI-equipped Durango and fuel economy slides to 14/20 mpg, or 16 mpg combined; it's rated at 13/20 mpg with all-wheel drive, or 15 mpg combined, making this SUV one of the biggest guzzlers on the market.

Chrysler promises the Durango and its kin, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, will receive a version of the new eight-speed automatic that's new in the Ram 1500 pickup for the 2013 model year. It's likely the utes won't receive the upgrade--and better fuel economy--until the 2014 model year.

Conclusion

The Durango V-6 gets gas mileage as good as many big crossovers, but the HEMI's a downer at the pump.

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.
