2017 Dodge Durango vs. 2016 Toyota Highlander Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Dodge Durango offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Highlander, with comparable head- and legroom. The Toyota Highlander 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 Toyota Highlander.

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 Toyota Highlander, 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 Destination Charge for the Dodge Durango is much higher than that for the Toyota Highlander.

Dimensions
The Dodge Durango is about the same width as the Toyota Highlander. 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 Toyota Highlander.

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

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

Performance
With the Dodge Durango, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Toyota Highlander. The Dodge Durango has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Highlander.

Utility
The Dodge Durango has less seating than the Toyota Highlander, making the Toyota Highlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Dodge Durango as you will in the Toyota Highlander.

Warranty
The Dodge Durango comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Highlander.
