The 2015 Dodge Durango successfully straddles several kinds of utility vehicles.
It's sized and competes as a three-row crossover, but it's also endowed with medium-duty all-wheel drive and some pretty impressive towing ability.
It's more rugged than the Ford Explorer, offering the V-8 Ford no longer sells and trumps it in towing capacity.
The Toyota Sequioa carries more people and tows more weight, but it's less nimble and feels less nice than the Dodge, period.
The Chevy Traverse is suited to carrying people and pulling a light trailer--and the same goes for the recently redone Nissan Pathfinder, as it gives up on its truck roots entirely and goes carlike with its drivetrain and its flip-and-fold, seven-passenger seating.
Meanwhile Dodge's own Grand Caravan, for those willing to own up to reality, probably makes a lot of sense (or at least more sense) for busy families, unless you're moving a large boat on weekends.
