Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Durango than in the Toyota 4Runner. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Dodge Durango and the Toyota 4Runner.

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 4Runner.

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 Toyota 4Runner, 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 Toyota 4Runner.

Dimensions
The Dodge Durango is about the same width as the Toyota 4Runner. 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 4Runner.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Dodge Durango doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota 4Runner.

Handling
The Dodge Durango has the same turning radius as the Toyota 4Runner, 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 4Runner for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Durango greatly out-muscles the Toyota 4Runner.

Utility
The Dodge Durango offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota 4Runner, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Dodge Durango has less cargo space than the Toyota 4Runner, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Dodge Durango comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota 4Runner.
