How roomy it is inside fits a least 8 comfortably.

I love my new vehicle. 2018 Dodge Durango. I needs more room for my kids to comfortably sit with legs not smushed and also have room for their backpacks and school stuff without having to hold on lap. This provides all the room needs for that and more. It features lots of extra things like rear view camera hands free cell access USB ports were you can charge cell as well as use carplay which allows you to text with voice so cool. It saves on gas to because it has the turn off engine feature when you are stopped a light or stuck in traffic as soon as you lift from brake pedal it automatically turns back on. Very comfortable to drive and sit in love it.

Dodge Durango is the best luxury SUV ever!

The Dodge Durango is my dream car! I have the 2018 get with the black out package, and let me tell you, I feel like a million dollars in that car. They have memory seats that move forward and backwards automatically for easy access in and out of the car. It rides so smooth, and has a great sounding engine. It really keeps up with traffic, I never feel like I am lagging behind when I get on the road. I love the beats speakers and Bluetooth functions, it syncs with my iPhone for complete hands free cell usage. I feel so safe with my family in this truck!

If your looking for a vehicle with a lot of room, the Durango is it!

My vehicle is a 2018 Dodge Durango. I live the convenience of the room it has. It has a 3rd row seating that we all just love. My oldest daughter is involved in travel cheerleading and I haul five girls in my Durango. This vehicle is excellent in gas and we get great gas mileage. It rides very smooth. We haven't had any problems out of it. I love the storage when the third row is let down. So much room for hauling things. I would highly recommend this vehicle. This is my second one I have owned.
