2002 Dodge Durango

Whether you call it an SUV or a truck (it's based on the Dodge Dakota and shares many features), the Dodge Durango easily makes the switch from transporting cargo to transporting your kid's soccer pals.

Joining the Sport, SLT, SLT Plus, and R/T trims in 2002 is the new SXT, featuring graphite trim, 16-inch wheels, and a roof rack.  The 4.7-liter, V6, 235-hp engine comes standard with all models, 2WD and 4WD, while the 5.9-liter V8, 245-hp engine comes standard with the R/T and is an option in SLT models.  

Mid-year 2002 saw a new 5-speed automatic transmission that came standard in the 4.7 V8, with the promise of improving the fuel efficiency, which really isn't saying much for an SUV as big as the Dodge Durango, which is rated at 14/19 mpg.  Listening to consumers, or simply aware of its poor safety ratings, the 2002 Dodge Durango enhanced its safety features by adding curtain-side airbags for the front and second row seats.  A dealer-installed DVD system was also available.

Most Dodge owners love the lines of the Durango and the engine power, that makes hauling loads easy and fast.  The handling gets high marks, especially around curves and in poor road conditions.  But that pesky repair record and low fuel economy are big disappointments for owners.
