2014 Dodge Durango vs. 2015 Lexus RX 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Durango than in the Lexus RX 350. The Lexus RX 350 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
The Dodge Durango requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus RX 350, 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). Clearly, the Dodge Durango is a better financial choice over the Lexus RX 350, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Dodge Durango will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Lexus RX 350.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Durango is much wider than the Lexus RX 350, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Lexus RX 350.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Dodge Durango transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Lexus RX 350.

Handling
The Dodge Durango has a smaller turning radius than the Lexus RX 350, 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 Lexus RX 350 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Durango greatly out-muscles the Lexus RX 350.

Utility
The Dodge Durango offers greater seating capacity than the Lexus RX 350, 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 Lexus RX 350.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Durango is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus RX 350.
