2014 Dodge Durango vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Durango than in the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Durango as you will with the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, 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). Whether you pick the Dodge Durango or the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Dimensions
The Dodge Durango is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Drivetrain
The Dodge Durango has much lower torque than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Dodge Durango has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Durango greatly out-muscles the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Utility
The Dodge Durango offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Dodge Durango, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Durango is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.
