Evidently jealous of the success of the Buick Rainier and the Mercury Mountaineer, Chrysler has created its own badge-engineered entry into the stagnant big SUV market. The division has plucked a nameplate from what it must hope is a forgotten 1970s compact and slapped it onto a chrome-dipped Dodge Durango to give Chrysler dealers an SUV to sell. (Although we thought they were supposed to sell Jeeps, since so many Chrysler and Jeep stores are paired.) Chrysler won't bother offering a base V-6 engine, instead sticking with the Durango's two V-8s, a 235-hp 4.7 liter and a 335-hp 5.7 liter. A third-row seat is standard and the second-row chairs can be a bench or buckets with a console.
