With gasoline prices at record lows, more and more Americans are purchasing larger vehicles, which makes perfect sense.
Two husky sport utility vehicles that have their own unique appeal are the Dodge Durango and Toyota 4Runner. The former is more patriotic than The Star-Spangled Banner, the latter specially designed for gnarly off-roading.
The Durango features a base 3.6-liter V6 that puts out up to 295 horsepower, while torque measures 260 lb-ft. Stepping up from here, a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is also on the menu. It delivers a burly 360 horses with 390 units of twist. Both engines are matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission for enhanced performance and efficiency.
Toyota’s 4Runner is powered by a 4.0-liter V6 engine. It cranks out 270 ponies along with 278 lb-ft of low-RPM torque. A five-speed automatic is the only transmission available.
