      Why it's on the list: Fuel; Maintenance; Insurance; Depreciation
      Coming in next on our list is the Dodge Durango, which has managed to land heavy costs in four categories. For this utility, gas will be an issue, as it only gets an estimated 19 mpg combined. At least it isn't as bad at the Suburban. If the gas prices don't get you down, maintenance costs very well might. Although it's not the thing that will break your bank the most for this vehicle, you're still going to feel it, especially when those insurance bills start rolling in. What will hurt your wallet the most will end up being the depreciation value. You won't be able to get nearly close to what you originally paid as the price drops significantly as time passes. Save yourself the trouble and buy something that will cost you less in the long run.

    This article is biased as it does not list all other factors on comparable vehicles. If it wants you to avoid the suburban for purchase, they should  tell you if  a Sequoia or Armada are better. Do they provide all the same benefits at a better value and why? the same goes for the Durango and the explorer as opposed to the 4runner or Landcruiser. There has to be a direct comparison in order to make a value judgment here.
