2015 Dodge Durango Overview

Is the 2015 Dodge Durango a Good Used SUV?

The 2015 Dodge Durango is a good midsize SUV for those who want a smooth ride, powerful engines, and a high-end interior. Still, many competitors perform much better on crash tests, prove more reliable, and are less expensive to own over the years. Be sure to shop around before buying.

Used 2015 Dodge Durango Performance and Interior

The Dodge Durango comes standard with a 290-horsepower V6. A 360-horsepower V8 is available. The Durango is one of the few 3-row midsize SUVs available with a V8. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard. Overall, the Durango feels comfortable on both highway straightaways and twisting back roads. The Durango R/T, with its sport-tuned steering and suspension, has even more capable handling, but its ride is stiffer. The Durango’s maximum towing capacity is 6,200 pounds with the V6 engine and 7,400 pounds with the V8.

With rear-wheel drive, the 2015 Durango returns an EPA-estimated 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, which is on par for the class. The rear-wheel-drive V8 has an EPA rating of 14 mpg in the city and 22 on the highway. Fuel economy drops 1 mpg with the AWD V6.

The Durango comes standard with cloth upholstery and seating for seven. Some used models may have leather, first- and second-row heated seats (power-adjustable in the front), and second-row captain’s chairs. The Durango’s first two rows are comfortable and spacious, though the second-row seats have a little less padding than expected. Adults may find the third row cramped. The Durango includes complete sets of LATCH child-seat connecters on the outboard second-row seats and tether anchors on all second- and third-row seats.

The 2015 Durango’s interior comes standard with tri-zone automatic climate control; a 7-inch configurable gauge cluster; and the Uconnect infotainment system, which features a 5-inch touch-screen display, voice recognition, and Bluetooth. The infotainment system is intuitive and easy to use. The larger 8.4-inch display available in some models is both sharp and easy to use. App integration brings many of your smartphone’s functions to your Durango’s display.

Should I Consider Another Used Durango?

The 2015 Dodge Durango is part of the SUV’s third generation, which launched as a 2011 model and includes the 2017 Durango. You might save money by choosing the largely similar 2014 Durango over the 2015 model. The 2013 Durango is another option, but it has different exterior styling.

Which Used Dodge Durango Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Dodge Durango comes in four trims: SXT, Limited, R/T, and Citadel. The base SXT offers tri-zone automatic climate control, a 7-inch configurable gauge cluster, remote keyless entry, and the Uconnect infotainment system, which features a 5-inch touch-screen display, voice recognition, and Bluetooth. The Limited trim adds leather seats (heated in the first and second rows), a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable front seats, remote start, and an 8.4-inch touch-screen display. The R/T comes standard with a V8 engine, a power liftgate, performance-tuned steering and suspension, and a Beats by Dr. Dre sound system. The Dodge Durango Citadel trim, which builds off the Limited, comes standard with Nappa leather interior, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a sunroof, and a power liftgate. Most buyers will be happy with the well-equipped Limited. If you crave sportier handling, the R/T makes the most sense.

With the Durango’s low reliability scores, you should consider a certified pre-owned model. For certified pre-owned Dodge vehicles, the original new-car powertrain warranty is extended to seven years or 100,000 miles. CPO vehicles also get a three-month/3,000-mile Maximum Coverage Care warranty. There are restrictions related to mileage and models, so read the Dodge warranty page carefully.

2015 Dodge Durango and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Dodge Durango or 2015 Toyota Highlander?

The 2015 Toyota Highlander, like the 2015 Durango, has a strong V6 engine, a composed ride, and a quality interior. The Highlander can seat eight compared to the Durango’s room for seven, but the Dodge has more cargo room. The Highlander bests the Durango, however, with above-average predicted reliability and a lower total cost of ownership. Those two factors make the Highlander the better choice.

Which Is Better: 2015 Dodge Durango or 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe?

The 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe handles as well as the Durango. The Dodge provides a lot more base power, but the Santa’s Fe available V6 matches the Durango’s standard horsepower. Both have nice interiors. The Hyundai has higher safety and predicted reliability ratings, and it will likely cost you considerably less than the Dodge.

Which Is Better: 2015 Dodge Durango or 2015 Honda Pilot?

The 2015 Honda Pilot bests the Durango in two important ways: seating (eight versus seven) and predicted reliability (above average versus bottom of the industry). The Durango has much better handling, nicer interior materials, and a V6 that outmuscles the Pilot’s, but the Pilot’s predicted reliability is a major plus for a family hauling midsize SUV. The Honda is the better choice.
