The Dodge Durango successfully straddles the lines between several kinds of utility vehicles.
It's more rugged than the Ford Explorer, as the Dodge's strong, tow-friendly V-8 has an easier time of it.
The Toyota Sequioa is a more trucklike offering; it carries more people and tows more weight, but it's less nimble and feels far less lavish than the Dodge.
The Chevy Traverse is suited to carrying people and pulling a light trailer—and the same goes for the Nissan Pathfinder, which has now also given up its truck roots and gone the way of a carlike ride and flip-and-fold, seven-passenger seating.
The new Chrysler Pacifica minivan probably makes a lot of sense (or at least more sense) for most busy families.
