Dodge has freshened the Durango's look for 2021 with new headlamps, an updated grille, a revised rear spoiler, and a tweaked front bumper, but changes are more noticeable inside. Changes to the dashboard create a more driver-oriented layout, with the infotainment display and lower controls angled slightly to the left.

Pros
Oozes machismo,
unbeatable towing capacity,
quick acceleration with the V-8.

Cons
Not particularly fuel efficient,
driver-assistance features aren't standard,
the third row of seats cost extra.
