The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.7
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Dodge Durango tows like an SUV, drives like a crossover—but crash test scores are a dull spot. The Toyota Highlander gets a stronger, more responsive powertrain for 2017, but the main strengths are the ride quality, the cabin refinement, and the space for eight.
