2017 Dodge Durango vs. 2017 GMC Acadia Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Dodge Durango than the GMC Acadia. The GMC Acadia offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Dodge Durango, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

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 GMC Acadia.

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 Dodge Durango will have less of an impact on your bank account than the GMC Acadia. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Durango is much higher than that for the GMC Acadia.

Dimensions
The Dodge Durango is about the same width as the GMC Acadia. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Dodge Durango, which is slightly longer than the GMC Acadia.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Dodge Durango does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the GMC Acadia.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Dodge Durango is clearly the choice over the GMC Acadia for pulling heavy loads. The Dodge Durango has a little less horsepower than the GMC Acadia.

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

Warranty
The Dodge Durango comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the GMC Acadia.
