The 2017 Dodge Durango is available with either a 3.6-liter V6 good for 295 horsepower, or a 5.7-liter V8 that can deliver 360 horsepower. Our test truck was the R/T model, which meant we got that big V8.

Oh, and David, I left it set to Yacht Rock. Does it even play other stations??

I drove one of these when this body style first came out and was pleasantly surprised by the handling and power (and good style, night and day vs. the old Durango which was ugly as hell).

in the end, the interior didn't really have the space that I wanted (kind of narrow and tight for a truck that big), so we got the Sequoia instead...which is big and bulletproof, but super-boring to drive. The Dodge was actually fun.

Anybody here own one of these a few years old? Prices for used ones make them seem attractive.

Thank you. Yeah, I left it set to that station the entire time the truck was with me.

Prices are attractive because they are of poor quality.

How FCA is still in business is a mystery to me (other than Wrangler sales)

Chrysler also has the 200 and the Dart, and Fiat has the progressively-styled 500L. Oh, I see your point.

My uncle had an Aspen. Prior generation (or 2?) obviously, as the Aspen was a 1-generation model only.

He loved the vehicle, and it was a great truck... until year 6 of his ownership when everything started to fall apart and rust. Note that it was still a good, functional vehicle, but the build quality was not there for the long haul.
