2016 Dodge Durango vs. 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Dodge Durango offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Dodge Durango and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Durango as you will with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Dodge Durango and the Jeep Grand Cherokee have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Dodge Durango is about the same width as the Jeep Grand Cherokee. If you go with the Dodge Durango, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

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

Handling
The Dodge Durango has the same turning radius as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Dodge Durango is clearly the choice over the Jeep Grand Cherokee for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Dodge Durango and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Utility
The Dodge Durango offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Dodge Durango has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Warranty
The Dodge Durango comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
