Kaiser revived the Jeepster a decade later, and it lost some curves. Maybe one of these?
Nice Jeep Truck. Those are very rare, or at least I almost never see them.
I heard about it earlier this week and spent most of today chasing it. What I didn’t know until the Bungie meeting at 4pm ET was who would get Destiny, which is why I waited until then to report it — I didn’t think it would be responsible to share that Activision and Bungie were splitting without being able to tell…
The contract always had Bungie controlling the IP. Activision probably saw what they were pumping into it and the fact players weren’t coming back and still decided the price to quit the contract was the lower one.
Current gen Durango is unibody. But yes it is RWD based unlike pretty much all the other crossovers.
We just bought a 2015 Durango SXT Rallye for the wife. I never thought I’d own a Dodge but after a bunch of looking around at 3-row crossovers it seems to offer some of the best bang for your buck. Haven’t had it long enough to comment on reliability but my research suggests that the drivetrain is pretty good and…
Take care of it, it will take care of you.
The first two generations of Durango were based on the Dakota, but the current one is a long wheelbase Grand Cherokee. It’s even built in the same plant as the Grand Cherokee.
cant help you there.. but i think the diesels are plenty solid... i suspect the smaller engined gas powered ones are too
Alex from Alex on autos bought a Durango citadel 5.7L for his personal use, mostly because of towing performance and capacity:
It’s a FCA product, but its an old (and fairly simple) platform. I wouldn't put it next to a 4Runner in terms of reliability but I don't see any reason why it would be a headache.
The Durango is on the same unibody platform as the Grand Cherokee and old Mercedes ML. It’s just a longitudinally mounted engine instead of transverse like the others.
Have you considered a 2016 4Runner?
Ours was the 3.5L v-6, but it didn’t have a towing package when we bought it, but I had them put on a factory tow bumper with the correct towing harness when it was rear-ended the first time. I’m sure it would perform even better with the rest of the package - an oil cooler and the towing button which switches the…
We owned a 2013 Explorer with most of the bells and whistles. I’m not a fan of big SUVs, but I have to admit, it was nice. We only had a few issues and I think they were all related to repairs that weren’t done correctly. All of the problems were associated with the backup camera and blind spot monitoring system.
The V10 Touareg, none.
The dangos are nice rides. The RT trim is my pick. They should be able to be picked up for under 30. Don’t forget to check new ones too, you might get incentives that print the prices in line with used. I wouldn’t worry too much about the reliability, dodge has their truck game on point and has for some time. Of…
Honestly the only true SUV on that list is the Durango...still BOF RWD based platform. It’s also the best one of the bunch by limited experience (no idea on reliability though) with the largest interior. This would also be the most competent towing vehicle here.
Out of all those, Durango. Especially if you plan on towing more than “once in a blue moon.”
