2019 Dodge Durango vs. 2019 Ford Explorer

The 2019 Dodge Durango and 2019 Ford Explorer are popular SUVs that are often compared, but there are several differences that make one of these SUVs a better buy. If you want more towing capacity, more horsepower, and a lower starting price, the Dodge Durango should be at the top of your list. Learn more at Zeigler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Schaumburg to decide if the Explorer or Durango is right for you.

Starting Price

A large SUV with seating for up to 7 is a popular choice for families in Arlington Heights. However, the Dodge Durango price has the Ford Explorer beat in the base trim:

  • 2019 Dodge Durango SXT – $29,995 MSRP
  • 2019 Ford Explorer Base – $32,365 MSRP

While each model is equipped with standard features such as a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and 60/40 split-folding seats, the lower starting price of the Durango makes it a better option if you are shopping on a budget.

Performance Specs

With a similar performance in the base trim, you might think the Durango and Explorer offer the same specs throughout the model line. However, if you want a V8 engine, you can only have that feature with the Durango. That allows for more power to take on steep grades in Barrington. In addition, the Dodge Durango towing capacityoutshines the capability of the Ford Explorer:

  • 2019 Dodge Durango SRT
    • Engine: 6.4L V8
    • Horsepower: 475 hp
    • Torque: 470 lb-ft
    • Max. Towing: 8,700 lbs
  • 2019 Ford Explorer Sport
    • Engine: 3.5L V6
    • Horsepower: 365 hp
    • Torque: 350 lb-ft
    • Max. Towing: 5,000 lbs

When you need a vehicle that can handle even the toughest tasks, it’s clear that the Durango is up to the challenge. It’s available with two all-wheel drive systems on top of its three engine options.

Maximum Cargo Volume

The measure of a large SUV is often in how much it can carry, and the Durango and Explorer are neck and neck:

  • 2019 Dodge Durango SXT – 84.5 cubic feet
  • 2019 Ford Explorer Base – 80.7 cubic feet

Although there is not a huge difference in cargo space, those few extra cubic feet can make a difference when it counts.
