Why the Dodge Durango?
Interior styling: A real step up from past Dodges and on par with vehicles costing more. Soft touch materials everywhere, efficient lay out of controls. Accent lighting looks great at night.
Handling: Got the R/T. The imprsseive handling more then offsets a little more "bumpy" ride on rough roads. For a vehicle of this size it has a tight turning radius, manuevering in congested parking lots is not an issue.
Cargo capacity & towing: Puchased vehicle for it's versatility. Can esaily load 10 foot lumber pieces with front passenger seat down, tow several tons in my trailer, etc. Large cargo capacity with third row seat down.
Audio & nav systems: Great features. Nav works great, real time traffic congestion results in automatica calculation of alternate routes. Blue tooth works well. Stock audio system sounds great, is versatile and convenient to use.
Materials & workmanship: When I compared to other vehicles (Toyota and Honda), I decided the Dodge had superior materials throughout the cabin and fit and finish was superior. Love the exterior styling, a more bold statement and not cutsy cross over.
