2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2018 Dodge Durango Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Traverse offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Dodge Durango, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Dodge Durango.

Convenience
With the Dodge Durango, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Traverse, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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. The Chevrolet Traverse has a little less horsepower than the Dodge Durango.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Traverse and the Dodge Durango. The Chevrolet Traverse has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Dodge Durango.

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