I was not at all impressed with its Mercedes GL. How does it compare to the Grand Cherokee?

Crew, Crew Lux, Citadel, Heat, Lifestyle Packages...at least Dodge gets Kudos for some interesting names!

The new Durango represents a departure for the name, coinciding with its first update since the Fiat takeover of Chrysler. For the first time, it’s not based on Dodge’s Dakota truck chassis. This time, it shares a foundation with the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Mercedes-Benz GL class of SUVs.

Refreshing updates abound: Chrysler’s new aluminum 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 replaces the brand’s old iron boat anchor as the base engine. The car's styling pays no homage to previous generations, either: Even Dodge’s trademark crosshair grille looks different from the second-gen Durango.

Our tester came lightly optioned on top of its well-equipped Heat trim line, listing $1170 above the $30,520 base price. A couple small surprises on our features list: The Heat trim deletes the standard roof rack and third-row seats. Even so, it has a built-in hard drive for music, a sport suspension with summer tires on its 20-inch wheels, and a 500-watt sound system.
