1999 Dodge Durango Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 34 reviews
Dodge cheated a little bit and classified their Durango as a compact SUV, even though it's closer in size to some of the full-size SUVs out there, just so they could say it's the biggest, most powerful SUV in its class.
Well, offering a 5.9-liter, 245-hp V8 engine that can tow up to 7200 pounds, it definitely is the most powerful SUV in its class, which includes the Ford Explorer. And it looks like a brute too, more truck than SUV, which makes sense, since it was based on the the Dakota pickup, which itself was based on the full-size Ram pickup. But don't be fooled by its gruff exterior. It is actually easy to maneuver, with good cornering and a sturdy frame.
In 1999, the Dodge Durango introduced a 2WD version to go along with its 4WD. In addition to the on-demand 4WD, you could pay extra for a 4WD that worked on dry pavement. Also new in the 1999 Durango is another engine choice, the 3.9-liter, 175-hp V6. A retooled overhead console and dash controls on the steering wheel were added to the interior. All models came standard with power windows and locks, tilt steering, cruise control, rear climate control, and the inevitable nine cupholders.
You'll make friends quickly with your local repairman, say Durango owners, who complain about problems with the transmission, ball joints, and brakes. You'll also make friends with your local gas pump, as the mileage, like in any SUV, stinks. Still, most owners rate their Durangos highly, because of its beefy look, storage capacity, spacious interior, the comfortable third-row seating, and its easy handling.
