2018 Dodge Durango Takes Home Best Buy Award
The Dodge Durango seems to be a favorite of the editors at Consumer Guide® Automotive. Since 2008, the Dodge Durango has captured the award-giving attention of the editorial staff and the publication’s title of Large SUV Best Buy due to its class-leading towing ability, aggressive styling, modern tech, and dependable utility.
“There’s a lot of good product hitting the market these days, but some designs are so well executed that they endure the test of new challengers. In the cases of the Durango and Ram, that is especially true,” said Tom Appel, Publisher of Consumer Guide® Automotive.
