Comparison Review

Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Durango than in the Lexus GX 460. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Dodge Durango and the Lexus GX 460.

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 Lexus GX 460.

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 Dodge Durango will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus GX 460. 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 Lexus GX 460.

Since the Dodge Durango is much wider than the Lexus GX 460, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Dodge Durango, which is slightly longer than the Lexus GX 460.

Handling
The Dodge Durango has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GX 460, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Powertrain
The Dodge Durango has much lower torque than the Lexus GX 460, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
The Dodge Durango has less seating than the Lexus GX 460, making the Lexus GX 460 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With the Dodge Durango, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus GX 460.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Durango is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus GX 460.
