Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Highlander Hybrid than in the Dodge Durango, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Dodge Durango, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Durango as you will with the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Hybrid. 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 Hybrid.

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

Handling
The Dodge Durango has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, 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 Toyota Highlander Hybrid for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Durango greatly out-muscles the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Dodge Durango does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Utility
The Dodge Durango has less seating than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, making the Toyota Highlander Hybrid 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 Hybrid.

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