What We Think
In a 2014 examination test that likewise incorporated the Toyota Highlander, Nissan Pathfinder, the past era Honda Pilot, Hyundai Santa Fe, and the old Mazda CX-9, the Dodge Durango won on account of its roomy inside and great ride quality. Notwithstanding the roomy inside, we noticed that getting in and out of the second and third lines in the Durango was less demanding than in alternate vehicles required in the test. Notwithstanding, we noted that while the Uconnect infotainment framework was anything but difficult to utilize, despite everything it has usefulness issues, particularly the route framework, which now and then thinks particular locations don’t exist.

The hybrid’s guiding, brake, and throttle feel likewise demonstrated magnificent.
