Value Writeup

Bigger than a small SUV, smaller than a full-size, the Dodge Durango is just right for every need--from those who will never leave asphalt, to those who will never see it. The aggressive styling is distinctly Dodge, and in addition to the standard 3.7L V6 and hefty 5.7L Hemi V8, the new flex-fuel 4.7L V8 makes great sense as a blend of both fuel economy and power, and at 303 horsepower, offers nearly 70 more horsepower than the engine it replaces. The Durango's near-9,000-pound towing capacity with the Hemi is best in the class, and acres of interior room make it a smart choice for hauling people and cargo.


Pros

Multiple configurations suit all drivers, from urban to rural; strong, aggressive styling in line with the Dodge family look; excellent towing capacity; best-in-the-industry limited lifetime powertrain warranty.


Model Highlights

The 2008 Dodge Durango is available in several trim packages, including the more basic SXT, the mid-level SLT and Adventurer, and the loaded Limited. All models are available in either two- or four-wheel drive, and in automatics of either four or five speeds.

A proven 210-horsepower 3.7L Magnum V6 is standard in the SXT 4x2 and SLT 4x2, while the SXT 4x4, SLT 4x4, Adventurer, and Limited come standard with the new 303-horsepower flex-fuel 4.7L V8, which puts out 330 lb-ft of torque. The 330-horsepower 5.7L Hemi V8 is optional on each of those.

As the Durango is primarily a hauler, buyers can get it equipped to carry and pull all sorts of things, with an impressive payload of 1,510 pounds to 1,750 pounds and a towing capacity of 8,950 pounds, with an available five-speed auto with overdrive to match.

Base SXTs include air conditioning, cloth bucket seats, power windows, heated fold-away mirrors, 40/20/40 folding rear seat, cargo tie-down loops, and covered storage.

Available comfort and convenience options include tri-zone climate control, rear-seat DVD entertainment, hands-free communication, MyGIG multi-media infotainment, and leather seating, while exterior options run the gamut from 18- and 20-inch aluminum wheels to body-color running boards.

All Durangos feature standard anti-lock brakes and advanced multi-stage front air bags as well as full supplemental side curtain air bags.


Model News

Visually, the Dodge Durango is little changed for 2008, though some mechanical updates are worth noting. Most important is a new, next-generation 303-horsepower 4.7L V8, which can run E85 ethanol. Four-wheel-drive models are now available with a single-speed transfer case, which allows drivers to select full-time AWD in addition to four-wheel high and low.

All Durangos now come standard with Chrysler's impressive limited lifetime powertrain warranty. Models in Limited trim differ slightly with some new exterior work, and a new Adventurer trim also offers cosmetic differences and a few interior upgrades. Durangos are now available with a rear back-up camera and Chrysler's MyGIG multi-media infotainment system. Pricing has increased marginally across the range.

Consequence
These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment. These inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling. An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Chrysler will notify the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM owners. Mitsubishi owners will be notified by their company. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. Chrysler mailed interim notices to owners on July 7, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
