2017 Dodge Durango vs. 2016 Ford Flex Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Dodge Durango, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Flex will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Dodge Durango.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Dodge Durango, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Flex.

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). Whether you pick the Dodge Durango or the Ford Flex, it's going to cost you about the same.

The Destination Charge for the Dodge Durango is much higher than that for the Ford Flex.

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

Handling
The Dodge Durango has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Ford Flex, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
