2015 Toyota Venza vs. 2014 Dodge Durango Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Venza 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 Toyota Venza and the Dodge Durango.

Convenience
With the Dodge Durango, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota Venza, 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 Toyota Venza 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 Toyota Venza carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Durango.

Dimensions
The Toyota Venza is a little narrower than the Dodge Durango, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Toyota Venza, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Durango.

Drivetrain
The Toyota Venza has much lower torque than the Dodge Durango, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Toyota Venza has a significantly larger turning radius than the Dodge Durango, making it much 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 Toyota Venza for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Venza has a lot less horsepower than the Dodge Durango.

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

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