2018 Dodge Durango vs. Its Competition

2018 Dodge Durango GT Rallye Appearance package
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

If you’re seeking a corner-carving crossover with room for seven in a pinch, the Mazda CX-9 should be in your shopping list.

It’s not the most versatile, but it’s a lot of fun and is priced right, too.

The Volkswagen Atlas goes in the opposite direction with its roomy interior and dull demeanor.

Pick the Toyota Highlander if all you need is a roomy appliance that does everything above average, or admit that a minivan is what you really need and test-drive the brilliant Chrysler Pacifica.

But if it’s a muscular crossover capable of towing that you want, the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe is newly available in a sporty configuration with Brembo brakes.
