Considering selling the wife's Jeep and buying a 2024 Durango. It comes standard with the V6 Pentastar and I know there was a lawsuit for that engine in the 2014 - 2020 models. Anyone have an opinion about that engine in the new model vehicles...or the Dodge Durango in general? Appreciate any insight.

Are you sure the wife is going to let you buy her anything less than the Hellcat powered version? :oops:

I wanted to get her the 5.7 Hemi, but you have to start with the $55,000 unit to get it. It's not even available as an option on anything less. I'm not paying $55k for a Durango grocery getter. :)

Maybe get her a "Prius" and put "RAM' emblems on the vehicle in prominent places? lol... :33::angels25::Big Laugh:

I've drove my friends '22 Durango many times, the 3.6 has plenty of power for even well spirited freeway driving. The engine has also been known to easily top 200K miles. About the only thing the V6 doesn't have is the rumble of the Hemi but it's a grocery getter..who cares.

Thanks for all the replies. We'll take a more serious look at the Durango in the next couple of months when we get ready to buy.
