Dodge Durango SXT
- Price: $29,795
- Gas mileage:
- City - 18 mpg
- Highway - 25 mpg
- Combined - 20 mpg
In many respects, the seven-passenger Durango can be lumped in with SUVs because of its size, available V-8 and low gear in its available AWD. However, it's unibody construction, in which the chassis, platform and body are one structure, meets Bankrate's definition of a crossover. Durango SXT also meets all of its other requirements to qualify for this list.
A 290-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 delivers its output to the rear wheels via an eight-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission. Dodge says its 600-mile range on a tank of gas is best in class.
Arguably the meanest, brawniest looking of Bankrate's picks, it combines aggressive styling with upscale amenities, such as tri-zone automatic climate control, a 115-volt household power outlet, 5-inch color touchscreen, Uconnect infotainment interface and a six-speaker audio system with iPod interface and satellite radio capability.
