The Dodge Durango earns good, but not excellent, crash-test scores.
The NHTSA has carried over the Durango's five-star rating for side-impact protection for the 2014 model year, and its four- and three-star rollover-resistance ratings. That gives it a total rating of four stars overall. The IIHS gives the Durango good scores in all tests performed--but because it hasn't tested the SUV for small-overlap impacts, it cannot be rated a Top Safety Pick+.
You'll probably need the extra electronic assistance of the rearview camera and parking sensors: outward visibility isn't all that impressive, though the Durango's squared-off corners do help in parking.
