Durangos have weak brakes?

I have 900 miles on my 2014 r/t now, and i can't help but feel that the brakes are weak?

my 2011 ford expedition with stock brakes definitely felt snappier with braking. it now has ebc yellow pads, and it stops like a coupe.

Does anyone else feel that the durango has weak brakes?

It really got me to expedite my brembo order.

Re: Durangos have weak brakes?

I have the opposite feeling. My old expedition had the worst brakes of any car I owned and the Durango the best.

man i must have high expectations, my previous small suv was a bmw x3 sports package 2007, but my 2011 expedition with stock brakes definitely felt stronger in the brake area

Re: Durangos have weak brakes?

I am in the same boat as vertrkr. Coming from a Tahoe, this thing stops way better than anything I have driven recently.

Mine stops just fine. Also, I've noticed that the transmission does a good job of slowing the car down as well even without brake usage. When it downshifts, it really slows up.

Re: Durangos have weak brakes?

Agree - mine are soft. Now - full disclosure...I came from an M3. But, the stock brakes on the D do feel squiggy.

All I could think of is Laverne & Shirley when I read this. I'm sure I'm dating myself here.

Re: Durangos have weak brakes?

Does anyone make a nice pad? I agree about the brake feel but I'm not trying to replace the stock stuff and change wheels for the brembo, a little more bite could go a long way.
