2015 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2014 Dodge Durango Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Durango than in the Chevrolet Traverse, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Dodge Durango, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Dodge Durango requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Chevrolet Traverse, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Traverse will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Dodge Durango. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Traverse carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Durango.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the Dodge Durango, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Traverse takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Dodge Durango.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Traverse and the Dodge Durango are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has a larger turning radius than the Dodge Durango, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Dodge Durango is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Traverse for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Traverse has a lot less horsepower than the Dodge Durango.

Utility
The Chevrolet Traverse offers greater seating capacity than the Dodge Durango, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Chevrolet Traverse, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Dodge Durango.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Traverse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Dodge Durango.
