2001 Dodge Durango Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 29 reviews
A great compromise between family car and truck, the Dodge Durango is a mid-size SUV that can haul up to 7300-pounds, has 88 cubic inches of cargo space, but doubles nicely as a family car to haul kids, sports equipment, or groceries. Both mom and dad will like the look and amenities of the Dodge Durango, but the poor gas mileage and unreliability might turn them away.
The 2001 Durango discontinued the standard 5.2-liter, 230-hp available in 2WD. All models received the 4.7-liter, 235-hp V8 as the standard engine, which means this SUV can haul with the best of them if it has to. On top of the SLT, the SLT plus adds more luxurious options. The Sport trim features sportier options, 15-inch wheels, and badges. The R/T performance trim, in addition to featuring the 5.9-liter, 245-hp V8 engine, adds body-colored moldings, sport-tuning, and leather and suede-accented interior.
The interior gets a more car-like update for 2001, including a new dashboard and a redesigned center console and steering wheel. Lots of storage room, the biggest interior in its class, and an easily accessible third row of seats (seating for seven) makes this a great SUV for families or short carpools.
The 2001 Durango is a mixed bag. It offers the volume and power of a full-size truck, but takes corners like a sedan, making it a great all-purpose vehicle, whether doing chores, transporting a heavy load, driving in the city, or on a long trip. The two aspects that most drivers love about the Durango is its power and its big-rig look. While it's a nice alternative to a minivan or a pickup, complaints pile up about the rough ride, repair visits, and its poor safety rating (not enough airbags). The cramped third row seating is not comfortable for adults on long rides.
