2014 Dodge Durango First Drive – Review – Car and Driver

I've been a reader if theirs for 30 years, so I've been waiting for them to cough one up. Unfortunately it's light on impressions :-(

"Combined with a shorter final drive and lower first-gear ratio, the 2014 version of the V-6 moves out smartly from rest and the smaller steps in the eight-speed’s gearing allow the engine to stay in the fat part of its torque curve more of the time, making for pleasing drive quality and good response, even at part-throttle. Because the V-6 now doesn’t have to work up as much of a lather, you don’t have to step into the throttle as deeply."

I agree with their impression on the V6. It doesn't take much throttle to get ya going. I've floored it a few times now from a rolling start, it's damn quick enough for me. I've set the system to warn me when I'm 15mph over the speed limit and I'm there before I know it on this 50mph stretch I was using.

Re: 2014 Durango Reviews

Examiner.com: First Drive Reveals Durango to be Bolder and Better

"The power, comfort and road ability of this [V-6] Durango was just this side of incredible as we pushed this Limited as far as safely possible in order to experience its road handling in all of the kinds of conditions that these canyon roads could give us. At no time did this Durango hesitate to stay in control of the road and, frankly, exceeded my expectation from one tight turn to the next, every time."

Its a decent review, except for the line about the Durango not having personality....

I think we'd all disagree.
