Dodge Durango vs Chevy Traverse


The Dodge Durango Versus the Chevrolet Traverse

These two amazing SUVs are exactly what you would expect an SUV to be: spacious, powerful, and loaded with that extra tech that will keep you and your family both entertained and safe. Even though they are a lot alike, with such qualities as comparable MSRPs, a 3.6-liter V6 engine, and the same three-year/36,000 mile and five-year/60,000 mile basic and drivetrain warranties, the Dodge Durango and Chevrolet Traverse differ in a lot of ways.

Power and Fuel Economy


When it comes to the powertrain you want the best of the best, especially if you are considering towing anything behind your SUV. Although both the Durango and the Traverse have the afore mentioned 3.6-liter V6 engine, the Durango produces more horsepower, has an eight-speed transmission, instead of a six-speed, and the base model has a towing capacity of 6,200-pounds. The base Traverse model is only capable of towing 5,200-pounds.


Those Extra Details


Whether it's technology or those little items that make your ride more luxurious, the extra details matter and the Dodge Durango includes some that the Chevrolet Traverse does not. Here are just a few of the amenities that are included in the Durango, but not in the Traverse:

  • Keyless Ignition - No longer will you have to dig through your purse or pockets to try to find that rogue key. The keyless ignition just requires the key to be in the starter's proximity and, with the push of a button, you're engine will start without you ever putting the key in the ignition.
  • Power Glass Sunroof - There is nothing like feeling the cool air rush over you as the sunlight warms you while you relax in your Durango. The glass powered sunroof is able to be opened or shut with just the touch of a button and can be covered if the sun is too much.
  • Colors For Every Personality - When it comes to the exterior color, you want to make sure that it is something that you are going to love. All trim levels of the Dodge Durango have nine available colors to choose from, while the Chevrolet Traverse only has two in the base level trim and eight in the top trim. This variety gives you more choices that can make your Durango perfect.
