2014 Dodge Durango vs. 2014 Toyota Venza Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Dodge Durango offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Venza, 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 Toyota Venza.

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 Venza.

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). The Dodge Durango is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Venza. 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 Venza.

Dimensions
The Dodge Durango is a little wider than the Toyota Venza, 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 Toyota Venza.

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 Toyota Venza.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Dodge Durango is clearly the choice over the Toyota Venza for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Durango greatly out-muscles the Toyota Venza.

Utility
The Dodge Durango offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota Venza, 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 Toyota Venza.

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