Great off roading vehicle for the whole family.
In general I love our Dodge Durango. When we lived in the Sierra mountains we would take it on off road trails in the mountains and it proved to be an amazing off road vehicle that we could rely on. Ours is 4 wheel drive but also has 4 lock and 4 low which was greatly needed for our steep grade drives and getting over and through rocky and muddy terrain. We used our Durango to tow trailers, cars, and horse trailers, all of which went very easily. The Durango never had issue. It's very comfortable. I have hip problems and the seats hold me very comfortably event for our multiple day road trips. We love to drive. We have three children ranging from a three year old in a car seat to a twelve year. Even though all three fit very comfortably in the middle row, there is a third row that can lay down. And it helps give the kids lots of personal space and still have space for groceries in the back. The spare tire can be difficult to access. If you have a full back or the third row up, it has to be emptied to lift the floor panel and wrench the tire down from under the vehicle. We blew a tire on the highway (Durango handled beautifully!!) and we have to remove many boxes out of the back in order to access the panel to drop the spare. The gas as you might imagine is terrible!!!!!! Not going to lie. It's a beast. But it's a fantastic, durable, reliable, and comfortable vehicle.
