2014 Dodge DurangoDick E. - Ringgold, GA02/28/2017
Comparing it to the Tahoe. Purchased used and was approximately $7000 less in price with 10000 less miles at time of purchase. Feels and is a bit smaller than the Tahoe and with the R/T package (Hemi) with AWD can tow up to 7200#. Fit and finish is comparable to Tahoe. Intermittent AWD is the biggest disappointment in the snows of the Pacific NW. Not a city driver with poor gas mileage. On the interstate getting between 21-23 MPG varies with wind direction and which set of tires I have on the car. These MPG numbers are when going approximately 0-5 MPG over the posted speed limit. The 8 speed transmission shifts like a dream but not a fan of the paddle shifters (May still not know how to keep them disengaged all the time.)
Great overall SUV

No kids (yet) but we're always on the go whether it be with friends, nieces/nephews, siblings...it's perfect for fitting everything we all need and everyone loves to ride in it. I appreciate that an adult can fit comfortably in even the third row. Smooth drive, no issues maintenance-wise with it at all. I spend a lot of time in it because of commuting and it's comfortable and reliable. Only con I would say is gas mileage. I generally get about 24mpg (and i drive a LOT) which is pretty good for an SUV but who wouldn't still want better?
Great turning radius (yes that is important), good ride, very comfortable, and looks so good! I also am getting great gas mileage (I have the 6 cylinder) @ 21-22 in the city and 27-29 on the hwy. It is also quiet inside.....much quieter than my wife's GMC Acadia.
Vehicles with third-row seating have plenty of features for nearly every type of driver. For families that need a great family-friendly vehicle, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans with third-row seats give passengers roomy interiors and still have enough power to haul plenty of vacation equipment or moving supplies.
