Comparison Review

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

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 Lincoln Nautilus.

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). Whether you pick the Dodge Durango or the Lincoln Nautilus, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Lincoln Nautilus.

Dimensions
The Dodge Durango is about the same width as the Lincoln Nautilus. 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 Lincoln Nautilus.

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

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

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

Utility
The Dodge Durango offers greater seating capacity than the Lincoln Nautilus, 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 Lincoln Nautilus.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Durango is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lincoln Nautilus.
