2014 Subaru Tribeca vs. 2014 Dodge Durango Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Durango than in the Subaru Tribeca, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Subaru Tribeca offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Dodge Durango, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Dodge Durango, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru Tribeca, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Subaru Tribeca 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 Subaru Tribeca carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Durango.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru Tribeca is much slimmer than the Dodge Durango, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Subaru Tribeca, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Durango.

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

Handling
The Subaru Tribeca has the same turning radius as the Dodge Durango, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Subaru Tribeca and the Dodge Durango. The Subaru Tribeca has less cargo space than the Dodge Durango, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Subaru Tribeca comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Dodge Durango.
