2022 Dodge Durango vs. Its Competition

2022 Dodge Durango
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

When it comes to three-row SUVs, the Durango’s closest rear-wheel-drive rival is the Ford Explorer, which can be had with impressive turbocharged V-6 power.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee L represents an evolution of where the Durango is likely to go with its fresh style, platform, and features.

If you don’t need quite so much muscle under the hood, the Mazda CX-9 offers balanced handling and crisp styling.

The Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade are twins under the skin serving up attractive style and careful attention to detail.
