The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
A composed family hauler most of the time, the 2013 Dodge Durango isn't afraid of getting its hands dirty when it needs to. Rugged good looks and a beefy V-8 powertrain can only get you so far: the 2013 Nissan Armada falls behind the full-size SUV leaders in safety, features, and fuel economy.
