Roomy interior; rugged underpinnings; toughness; wide array of configurations.
There are a whole slew of 2007 Dodge Durango configurations from which to choose, and they all offer plenty of the toughness that Dodge's trucks are famous for. Both two- and four-wheel drive are available, as are four different engines, and three different trim levels.
A 3.7L V6 is standard and only found on the 2WD SXT and SLT, while two 4.7L V8s (a gas and a flex-fuel engine) are available across the model lineup. The 5.7L Hemi V8 is popular among Dodge buyers, and it is available on SLT and Limited trims. A four-speed automatic transmission is matched to the V6, while the larger engines come with five-speeds.
The Hemi makes 335-horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque, and features Dodge's multi-displacement system. The 4.7L V8s muster 230-horsepower and 290 lb-ft. These are not shabby numbers, and they clearly best the base 3.7L V6's output. That single overhead cam, three-valve-per-cylinder engine has 210-horesepower 235 lb-ft.
The SXT has such standard equipment as four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, power heated mirrors, air conditioning, electronic stability control, side curtain air bags, and power windows and locks. The SLT adds aluminum wheels, fog lamps, a power driver seat, third-row seating, and various interior upgrades. The Limited gets auto-dimming exterior mirrors with memory, heated leather seats, a premium instrument panel, a rear park assist system, a six-disc CD changer with Alpine speakers and satellite radio, a power liftgate, and loads more.
Two notable option packages are available on the Durango SLTs. The Durango Adventurer has reversible rubber slush mats, a cargo management system, a cargo mat with an integrated bin liner, a Thule roof rack, and standard silver tubular side steps, a CD changer, and on/off-road tires. For those who wear black, the Night Runner package dresses the Durango in a coat of brilliant black paint, has black chrome 18" wheels, and is appropriately powered by the Hemi.
All manner of options are available on the Durango, depending on trim. Numerous trailer tow groups, rear air conditioning, remote start, running boards, Sirius satellite radio, a rear seat entertainment system, power adjustable pedals, a sunroof, Alpine speakers, and hands-free communication all allow consumers to tailor their Durango to their liking, both in terms of equipment level and price.
A Durango is best utilized by either loading it with 1,400-1,750 pounds of payload, (depending on your engine choice, transmission, axle ratio, drive option and trim level) or towing between 3,750 and 8,950 pounds of trailer and toys. While we did nothing to flex the Durango's considerable hauling muscles, we did enjoy the 119-inch long wheelbase's contribution to the smooth highway ride.
The Dodge Durango gets a modest facelift for 2007. New front fenders, hood and headlights frame the latest grille. The new, larger rearview mirrors are both heated and folding. Side air bags have been added as standard equipment. There is now a vehicle information center in the overhead console. You now get a one-touch, three-blink lane-change feature. Dual front climate control is standard, as is an electronic stability control with standard trailer sway dampening.
The 2007 Dodge Durango is a great SUV for those looking to haul family, cargo or both. The styling of the Durango is a mixture of pickup truck and wagon that let's you know it's a Dodge. The front end proudly wears the latest version of the now ubiquitous Dodge Ram grille that is framed by clearly delineated fenders. In side profile the wheel arches bulge, and the roof line is tall.
Inside the Durango, nothing is cramped or crowded. Large amounts of space means all controls are big enough to be easily worked, even while wearing gloves. Dodge gets points for using the simple, and easy-to-use three-dial system for the heating and standard air conditioning controls.
