The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Dodge Durango prioritizes fun over practicality, but we’re fine with that. The 2018 Nissan Pathfinder should be on the list for shoppers looking for a large crossover. The Pathfinder is highly functional, but not entirely interesting.
