2000 Dodge Durango Overview

In 2000, the Dodge Durango came in four trims -- SLT, SLT-Plus (more power options and leather upholstery), Sport, and R/T Sport. The 5.2-liter, 230-hp V8 was only available in 2WD models. In 4WDs, it was replaced by the more fuel efficient 4.7-liter, 235-hp V8. This engine was paired with an electronic automatic transmission, a re-engineered suspension, and rack and pinion steering, to improve the driveability and acceleration. The 3.9-liter V6, which used to come standard, was gone in 2000.

The R/T trim featured the monster 5.9-liter, 245-hp V8 engine, appropriate for a performance model. To complete this image, it adds leather interior, R/T badges, 17-inch wheels, and a nice engine rumble that hints at the spirit of a sports car trapped in the body of a truck.

All models featured the Enhanced Accident Response system, which sprung into action as soon as the airbags deployed. Standard second row bench seat (buckets optional) and third row bench seat folded flat for lots of storage. The Durango could hold a lot, and with its powerful engines, transporting heavy loads was not a problem.

For all its big-bodied personality, the 2000 Durango rides relatively quietly and has an excellent turn ratio. One drawback to its size is a tendency to get knocked around on windy days, giving the impression it might easily roll over. Drivers like the good visibility, easily-foldable rear seats, and the voluminous interior. What they could do without is the lousy gas mileage, the cheap-looking plastic dashboard controls, and the repairs, repairs, repairs.
