    Do love me those Dodges, Whenever out f town I am in a rental Charger or Challenger.

    Xterras are pretty good too. Not as much towing capacity as the Durango but overall a good performer. Just as long as you’re not towing stuff meant for a dually.

      Isn’t the Xterra based off the Frontier? My first-gen 4WD Frontier with the V-6/AT can pull a 4,000 pound trailer over rolling hills with no problem – might not pull a 5,000 pound trailer over one of the Rocky Mountain passes at 75 mph, but then how often do most people do that?

        Yea same platform. I’m pretty sure the Frontier tows the same too.

    How many soccer tots can it hold?

      From the article:
      “The Durango is a proper seven-seater…”

    • Piglet2010

      Before the safety communists took over, kids could ride in the back of a pick-em-up truck – I used to love doing that when I was a kid.

  • Piglet2010

    I know people who as part of their job used to have to pull 15+ ton
    trailers with trucks that made less than 120 HP (at least they were diesels, so probably near 300 lb-ft. of torque) – imaging crossing the
    Dakota’s at 48-mph top speed.

    People these days really are spoiled.

    I refuse to buy any vehicle styled to appeal to the “reptilian brain”.

    • darngooddesign

      So you drive a Prius and ride a Yamaha VIno then?

      • Piglet2010

        I have a “Modern Classics” Bonnie, Honda Deauville, Elite and Civic, Yamaha TW200, Nissan Frontier, and a pre-gen Ninjette.

    probably a nightmare to lanesplit

    I don’t need to tow anything heavy. So I’d rather have a minivan. Coincidentally, that’s what my next vehicle purchase will likely be.

  • SpikedLemon

    My VW Golf can tow one tonne. More than enough for toting a bike or camper
