Dodge makes some great trucks, cars and SUVs, and there are plenty to choose from. Whether you want a sports car, a family SUV or a workhorse truck, you won’t regret your decision to get a Dodge vehicle. However, the one question you should ask yourself is, should you lease or buy? The truth is, it depends on a few factors.

How much you drive

If you commute far or take a lot of long road trips, you may want to consider buying your car. Otherwise, if you lease your new Dodge vehicle, you will have to either buy out the lease or pay for the mileage you went over. On the other hand, if you aren’t a big commuter and don’t take a lot of long trips, or if your Dodge is a second vehicle, you may want to consider leasing. It will save you money if you drive only 5,000-10,000 miles a year.

How much money you can put down

If you don’t have a lot of money to put down for a new or used car, you should consider leasing. Think about it, when you lease a car, you can often drive it off the lot without writing a check or spending a dime. But, when you don’t put a down payment on a lease, you will have higher monthly payments. Not only that, when you lease a car, you can avoid most taxes as you only pay tax on the value of the car you used.


Small business owners who know what they are doing can save a lot of cash when it comes to taking advantage of legal tax write-offs. If you use your Dodge vehicle to make deliveries or use it for your day-to-day business needs, a lease may be a good deal for you. On the other hand, if you aren’t a small business owner and plan to keep your vehicle for a long time, a lease may not be the best option. Either way, if you are a small business owner, don’t go out of your way to lease just to save on taxes. Make sure it’s the best option all around.

New vehicle more often

Most people who love leasing love that they can get a new vehicle often. When buying, you may have to wait four to six years to pay off your vehicle and get another one. On the other hand, if you play your cards right, you can enjoy a brand new Dodge every couple of years. Another advantage is that you can change the type of vehicle you get. Maybe you want a sports car now but want a minivan in the near future. If thats your case, leasing may be the best option for you.

Whether you are looking to lease or buy, you should head on down to Chapman Dodge Las Vegas. You can get advice and figure out what option is best for you. Whether you want a truck, SUV or car, a Dodge will take care of your needs.


The 2017 Dodge Durango is a luxury SUV that the entire family can enjoy. While some SUVs are a little better for off-roading or a little more fun to drive, no SUV offers it all like the Dodge Durango does. You can bring your entire family, and you can easily seat seven people, all while being comfortable. Of course, with the Durango, you can take out seats and carry more stuff from the garage sale or even move your house.

Once on the road, the Durango will keep your passengers entertained the whole time. With a nine-inch screen for backseat passengers, they can watch movies and listen to their favorite music. You can even get dual screens if you want your passengers to have their own entertainment setup. If you are in the front seat and don’t want to get lost, the 3D graphic navigation system will give you step-by-step directions that will ensure you easily arrive where you want to go. Sitting in the driver’s seat of a Durango is very comfortable, and if you are thinking of getting a minivan to haul your kids and their stuff around, you should seriously take a look at other options, including the Durango.

Without a doubt, when driving down the road, you want you and your family to be safe. Luckily, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated the Durango highly. Most ratings were either good or marginal, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also gave the vehicle high ratings. This means that you can drive the Durango down the highway or city streets without a fear in the world. Of course, you are more likely to avoid an accident than with other SUVs as you get things like Lane Departure Warning and a Rollover Protection System, along with a Blind Spot Monitor and Auto-Leveling Headlights. Simply put, not only is the Durango safe, but it will actually help you avoid accidents in the first place.

While it is roomy, safe and full of technology, it also has a decent sized engine. The 2017 Durango has a 293 horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 engine. If you want more, you can upgrade to the powerful 360 horsepower, 5.7-liter V8 engine. However, the V8 is only truly necessary if you are planning on doing a lot of towing. Fuel economy isn’t bad, especially when you consider the engine size and how many people you can carry. With 18 miles per gallon in the city and 26 on the highway, you aren’t doing too bad.

The 2017 Dodge Durango is the oldest model in its class. While it was introduced in 1998, there have been yearly upgrades, and Dodge has gone out of its way to listen to the needs of drivers and improve the SUV more and more. If you are looking to see how comfy and roomy a 2017 Dodge Durango is, you should check one out at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas. You are sure to find it roomy, fun to drive and comfortable.
