- The "Ouch" of laying out $34K
We just purchased our Durango Limited after two very good Jeep Grand Cherokees. The last being 6 years old and NEVER having had the least problem... And the 4.7L getting 21 mpg on the highway.
Our experience with Durango's started with a 2001. A beautiful vehicle to this day! My son and daughter-in-law purchased a slightly used 2005 SLT this summer. Nice!
I've heard much talk about the 4-Runner. All that talk about Toyota quality. Where is it hiding? I wasn't impressed... Except with their prices. Same with the GM offerings. They were more expensive, yet seemed cheaply made. Fords? I hate to say it, but Ford is a babe lost in the woods right now, not that I think they make a bad vehicle. Jeep was our other option but Durango is simply more bang for the buck all the way around. That, and the '06 Jeep is really mostly the same vehicle that we just traded in. Durango simply beats Jeep in room and features while still offering good quality.
Incentives dropped the price of our Durango from $41.3k to $33.6k. That, and our dealer was motivated to move a unit. When compared to the $29k we paid for our 2000 Laredo, and when we got a decent trade price, this was a pretty good deal as new vehicles go.
The Hemi - Ho Hum. I'm used to a '04.5 Cummins RAM. Not much comparison there even in the economy department. The CTD returns 20 mpg on a regular basis and its horses are much BIGGER that the Hemi's! I will comment that I can't feel the switch to four cylinder mode and that power is more than adequate.
MPG's... Don't buy a SUV like this if you're wanting 30 mpg! If you drive only a moderate number of miles in a year, then consider that the difference isn't all that much in dollars spent and the payback in comfort is well worth the cost.
