Hi there,

I have a leased Dodge Durango R/T which is up for lease termination in couple of months. I have zeroed in on following options so far -

- GMC AT4 2021
- Genesis GV80
- Hyundai Palisade
- Kia Telluride

Would you recommend any other cars to try for someone trying to replace Durango R/T? Genesis GV80 3.5T V6 AWD seems closest looking at following core requirements -

- Sporty handling, paddle shifters are a must.
- Mid-segment in terms of luxury.

Is there any other you would recommend ?

    Sort of depends on what aspects you liked from the Durango that you'd like to replicate.

    I had a Durango as well and particularly enjoyed the sound and feel of the Hemi, but obviously there aren't many V8 SUVs around (other than the full size ones).

    The GV80 is getting all kinds of praise, so certainly seems like a good way to go.

    I recently test drove an Explorer ST and thought that would be a great replacement for the Durango from a large sporty SUV perspective.

    The Palisade/Telluride options are great vehicles. May be a bit on the bland side, but very functional and luxurious.
