Sophistication and brawn might not seem like two things that go together, but they’ve formed a very happy union in the 2011 Dodge Durango. If you want the best of both worlds, consider a pre-owned model for your next SUV. A review by The Car Connection praises the vehicle's meaty steering feel, independent suspension, and big breaks, saying that the Durango has never felt better to drive.
Under its handsome hood, this SUV contains a superior HEMI 5.7-liter V8 engine, which wields a monstrous 290 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. All of that power gives the Durango an impressive towing capability of 7,400 pounds. Put the pedal to the metal and you’ll reach 60mph in about 8 short seconds. HEMI enthusiasts will enjoy the drivetrain noises when the engine purrs like a...well, ferocious lion hungry for its next meal.
But the Durango is no brutish power machine, as it’s also received high ratings from passengers. The interior is comfortable, elegant, and clearly designed with full-sized adults in mind. Whether you’re going on a month long camping trip or buying enough canned goods to see you through the apocalypse, the 84.5 cubic feet of cargo space is more than enough.
