The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Dodge Durango prioritizes fun over practicality, but we’re fine with that. The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas does little wrong, but it's light on personality and a little low-rent inside—and it guzzles fuel. It's worth a look, but mostly rivals do more for less.
