2009 Dodge Durango Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2009 Dodge Durango was new.


Interior: 8.0

Though the interior of the 2009 Dodge Durango is solid and functional, reviewers complain of tight seating in the rear two rows.

  • "Large, airy cabin with clean, modern styling and three rows of seats." -- Motor Week
  • "Inside the cabin, you'll find clean lines. . .[but] the Durango is no class leader when it comes to interior style." -- Edmunds


The base Durango seats five, but an optional third row lets it accommodate up to eight, which is more than most midsize SUVs. However, if you plan to fill all the seats, most passengers will be squished, since reviewers say the second and third rows of seats are cramped.

  • "Headroom and legroom are generous, even beneath the housing of the optional sunroof." -- Consumer Guide (front seats)
  • "The cabin is roomy in most respects, but unfortunately, adults will likely find that the second row's available legroom is rather tight." -- Edmunds

Interior Features

The Durango has some innovative interior features, including satellite TV for rear-seat passengers. The interior materials and layout are about average.

  • "Cabin materials are neither fancy nor exceptionally cheap looking. Despite some lightweight plastic pieces, most everything appears durable and looks appropriate for the price, at least on conventional models." -- Consumer Guide
  • "Modern and functional, the Dodge Durango's cabin was designed with family-style versatility in mind -- but not high-quality materials." -- Edmunds
  • "The handsome dash is clean, simple and easy to use, with controls well within the driver's reach and logically arranged." -- Kelley Blue Book


The Durango boasts a maximum of 102.4 cubic feet of cargo room, with 68.4 cubic feet behind the second row and 20.1 cubic feet behind the third row. With all seats in use, the Durango has more cargo space than most rivals. Testers also appreciate the Durango's thoughtful storage cubbies.

  • "There are many useful small storage areas inside the vehicle and within reach of the front passengers that complement the huge rear cargo area. In addition, there are two power outlets for charging the equipment that travelers need." -- The Auto Channel
