Comparison Review

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

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 Toyota Highlander.

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). The Dodge Durango is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Highlander. 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 Toyota Highlander.

Dimensions
The Dodge Durango is about the same width as the Toyota Highlander. 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 Toyota Highlander.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Dodge Durango and the Toyota Highlander are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Dodge Durango is clearly the choice over the Toyota Highlander for pulling heavy loads. The Dodge Durango has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Highlander.

Utility
The Dodge Durango has less seating than the Toyota Highlander, making the Toyota Highlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Dodge Durango as you will in the Toyota Highlander.

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