Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For the shrinking number of people buying large sedans, the Avalon will do quite nicely.

Pros
Efficient powertrains,
huge trunk space,
long list of standard features.

Cons
Polarizing exterior,
bland-looking infotainment interface,
all-wheel drive only offered on two trims.

The 2020 Toyota Avalon works best as a stylish, comfortable cruiser, and not as a wannabe sports sedan.

Pros
Stylish lines, mostly
Comfortable cruiser
Commendable hybrid
Well-equipped
Spacious back seat

Cons
Does it really need to be sporty?
Overwrought styling at times
Poor V-6 mpg
Can get expensive

Dull handling

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.

SRT Hellcat with supercharged 6.2-liter V8 added to lineup.Refreshed, more aggressive exterior design.Refreshed interior with larger touchscreen and wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.

Pros
Large touchscreen tech interface is one of the best in class
Strong V8s provide exceptional towing ability
Real off-road capabilities with 4WD and low-range gearing
SRT Hellcat Durango provides a tire-shredding 710 horsepower

Cons
Fuel economy is below average, especially with the V8s
Bigger and bulkier to drive than rival crossover SUVs
