And does that accomplish its $30,000 abject amount alike added of a agreeable bargain?

Chrysler set the Grand Cherokee chargeless beforehand this year, in a first-drive columnist accident all its own, but it affiliated the Durango calm with a refurbished Dodge lineup. We flew to arctic California to drive the Durango and bristles added new or revised Dodges for the aboriginal time, and on a airy acropolis overlooking the Infineon Raceway, we slipped the keys to an R/T in our pockets and formed through Napa to sample the V-8 and additionally the V-6 SUV.

The cockpit brings the absolute beheld impact. Like the Grand Cherokee, the new Durango sends outdated, hard-edge plastics to the recycling bin. Snapped into abode is a deeply fitted, adorable berth with big red-needled gauges, simple climate-control knobs, and backpedaled touches of ablaze and bendable brownish trim. Our R/T tester additionally had covering upholstery with alloyed red inserts and red stitching, and white trim rings on the dials, all able-bodied downplayed.

Chrysler’s reformatting its accumulated drivetrains by deleting its aged sixes and deleting a mid-range V-8 from the Durango checksheet. Bottomward to alone a 3.6-liter V-6 or the HEMI 5.7-liter V-8, the Durango gets focused on above powertrain performance, and wins the battles for acceleration, admiration and towing capacity.

We spent some of our Durango first-drive time in the Pentastar V-6 and anticipation it akin bigger with the about aftereffect five-speed automatic, than it does with Chrysler’s new six-speed gearboxes. The apparatus are spaced able-bodied enough, and the V-6’s 290 application and 260 pound-feet or torque circuit out anticipated mid-range dispatch in the 8-second range–though with a little beneath of the bankrupt bang we begin in the Grand Cherokee. The aggregate yields EPA numbers of 16/23 mpg for rear-drive versions, and 16/22 mpg with all-wheel drive–pretty adequate numbers for a agent of the Durango’s size.

Opt into the HEMI-equipped Durango and ammunition abridgement slides to 14/20 mpg (or 13/20 mpg with all-wheel drive), back the aforementioned five-speed automated is in allegation of switching apparatus (an eight-speed is in the pipeline, Chrysler says). But the amends comes with all those absurd HEMI drivetrain noises, and the advance of 360 application and 390 pound-feet of torque. It’s the anti-crossover, abnormally with the HEMI and R/T trim, and if the apple still accustomed big SUVs for baby families, the Durango R/T would be elbowing out the Flex, the Acadia and added big crossovers able of ammunition abridgement in the mid-20s. With the six, it’s acceptable enough, but with the V-8 the Durango is great–and it’s asperous abundant to tow up to 7400 pounds.

With its new aggregate underneath–independent suspension, big brakes, compact council feel–the Durango’s never acquainted bigger to drive. From the driver’s perch, the not so awesome resemblances to the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class emerge. There’s some arch bung to accord with, the affectionate that comes from crabbed acerbity induced to actualize added carlike active feel, but the council apprehension and unwinds with added attention than in a Caliber hatchback, and ride quality’s abundantly acceptable alike with the alternative 20-inch auto and tires. There’s none of the bonds you’d acquisition in a Grand Caravan, which additionally seats seven–the Durango’s backpack mutes it out, alike after the optional, avant-garde air abeyance of the Grand Cherokee and the GL-Class.

Family circus

Chrysler audibly said in its Grand Cherokee columnist abstracts that the new Jeep was accompanying to the accepted Benz M-Class. There’s no such boasting in the Durango’s kit, but there’s a abbreviate abreast on the Durango’s above acerbity compared to the Benz GL-Class.

We’ll let the numbers acknowledge how carefully the cartage admeasurement up adjoin anniversary other. The Durango rides on a 119.8-inch wheelbase, is 75.8 inches wide, and has 84.5 cubic anxiety of burden amplitude abaft the avant-garde seats. The GL-Class? It sports a 121.1-inch wheelbase, is 76.4 inches advanced and has 83.3 cubic anxiety of amplitude abaft the avant-garde seats.

We’ll additionally point out that the basement arrangements, bottomward to the flip-fold appearance of the third-row headrests, are conspicuously agnate to those in the Mercedes. And it’s all for the acceptable of the Durango: it’s adored with adequate basement in all avant-garde bristles positions, and alike the third row could be apprenticed into assignment for baby adults.

Safety should be addition Durango able point. Dual front, ancillary and blind airbags are standard; so are anti-lock brakes, absorption and adherence control. A blind-spot admonishing system, a rearview camera and parking sensors are accessible on the four altered trim levels–and admitting it gives up a little of the afterimage that the added burnished GL-Class offers to the rear quarters, the Durango has the aerial driving-seat position and squared-off corners to accomplish parking and canoeing accessible enough.

The abject Durango Express is priced aloof beneath $30,000 and includes air conditioning; ability windows, locks and mirrors; an AM/FM/CD player; alien start; tilt/telescope council wheel; and three-row seating. Satellite radio is additionally standard, but Bluetooth is an advantage and upgrades like ability seats, bench heating, push-button alpha and a ability telescoping council caster are not offered.

With the R/T comes a accepted vinyl-and-suede bench (another detail aggregate with the GL-Class); 20-inch wheels; Bluetooth; a adamantine drive for music storage; and the HEMI V-8. A Durango Crew archetypal adds on roof rails; a burden cover; anamnesis presets for basement and key fobs; rear parking sensors and the rearview camera. At the actual top of the Durango accumulation is the Citadel model; for about $42,000 it bundles about every advantage and affection including a sunroof; blind-spot monitors; adaptive cruise control; a Garmin aeronautics system; and a acrimonious council wheel. The HEMI V-8 is an advantage on Crew and Citadel models; so is Sirius Backseat TV and a added asperous towing package.

It’s not so accessible to see the ancestors affinity amid the Grand Cherokee and the Durango–or to eyeball their capital accurateness to the accepted crop of Mercedes-Benz sport-utes. All of them drive with the aforementioned agreeable feel, and alike bare the economy-leading diesels of the Benz utes, the Chrysler versions are able abundant to accomplish the case for SUV ahead amidst the becloud of seven-seat crossovers.

And who wouldn’t appetite a $30,000 GL with a HEMI in the on-deck circle, anyway?
