The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Dodge Durango hits a sweet spot between crossovers and SUVs—if you're willing to overlook the thirst, that is. The 2016 Nissan Pathfinder lacks sporty or off-road intentions, instead offering space for seven in a composed, quiet environment.
