2006 Dodge Durango Overview

There is a lot of power packed into the 2006 Dodge Durango. Yes, it will haul groceries and a couple of baskets of fresh-picked apples on a sunny Sunday afternoon, but even if you want to haul 8,900 pounds of fresh-picked apples, it won't flinch. Powered by a 5.9-liter, 335-hp Hemi V8, the Durango tackles hills and highways with awesome power.

The 2006 Durango loses the ST trim, making the 2WD SXT with a standard 3.7-liter, 210-hp V6 engine the base model. Other trims include the SLT, Limited, and Adventurer, which is targeted at outdoor, off-roading, adventurer types - hence the name. SLT and above models come standard with the 4.7-liter, 235-hp Magnum V8. Available with two- or four-wheel drive, the V6 is paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission, and the V8s are paired with a 5-speed auto tran.

The Dodge Durango received a five-star front crash rating in 2005, and new in 2006 are more safety options, including electronic stability control and roll-sensing side airbags. An anti-skid system replaces the traction control. Inside, the third row in Limited models is now designed for three passengers instead of two, upping passenger capacity from seven to eight. A power liftgate comes standard in Limited trims.

The 2006 Durango is praised for its comfortable ride and muscle-car power, though it loses marks in stability and reliability. Interior comfort ranks high, though some drivers complain about the exterior front styling and rear visibility. Forget about gas mileage.
