2015 Nissan Murano vs. 2015 Dodge Durango Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Dodge Durango requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Nissan Murano, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Nissan Murano will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Dodge Durango. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Nissan Murano carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Durango.

Dimensions
The Nissan Murano is about the same width as the Dodge Durango. The Nissan Murano is slightly shorter than the Dodge Durango, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Nissan Murano doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Dodge Durango.

Handling
The Nissan Murano has a larger turning radius than the Dodge Durango, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Dodge Durango is clearly the choice over the Nissan Murano for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Murano has a lot less horsepower than the Dodge Durango.

Utility
The Nissan Murano has less seating than the Dodge Durango, making the Dodge Durango the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Nissan Murano has significantly less cargo capacity than the Dodge Durango.

Warranty
The Nissan Murano comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Dodge Durango.
