2020 Dodge Durango VS 2020 Ford Explorer : battle

2020 Dodge Durango VS 2020 Ford Explorer : battle

The 2020 Dodge Durango has been designed to be more stylish and versatile than ever before. This sporty and spacious SUV comes equipped with a wide range of advanced features to make your driving experience more convenient and exciting. To better illustrate just how impressive the 2020 Durango truly is, we have compared it to another popular SUV, the 2020 Ford Explorer. Here is a look at how the Durango compares to this popular Ford SUV.


Bold Exterior Design


The Durango has a striking eye-catching design that helps it to stand out among the crowd. The body features smooth lines and curves that help to give it an athletic appearance. The front fascia features the iconic floating split-crosshair grille that elegantly flows into the bright and slender headlights. The sloping ventilated hood adds a level of sportiness to the exterior. The Ford Explorer is roughly the same size as the Durango. However, it does not offer a high level of stylish exterior features that the Durango has.


Interior Features


Both the Explorer and the Durango offer spacious interiors. However, the Durango's interior has been specifically designed to offer more luxurious features than any other SUV in its class. The standard 12-way power-adjusted driver's seat ensures that you are always able to sit comfortably in the driver's seat. The interior also offers available Nappa leather seats and available heated seats for the first and second rows.


Entertainment and Technology


The Durango has utilized the latest technology to make your driving experience more entertaining and safer. The standard Uconnect system comes with a large colour touchscreen display that features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as well as an available DVD system, Sirius XM radio, and Wi-Fi Hotspot. To ensure that you and your passengers are able to stay connected to the world around you, the Durango also features several charging ports that are strategically placed throughout the cabin. There is also a fully customizable 7-inch digital instrument cluster that allows you to easily view and display your vehicle's information that is most important to you.


Safety Features


Both the Explorer and the Durango come with a wide range of safety features. However, the Durango offers a few more standard safety features than the Explorer offers. Some of the safety features that come standard on the Durango include:

  •  Advanced Airbag System with seven airbags
  •  Reverse Camera
  •  4-Wheel Anti-Lock Braking System
  •  Electronic Stability Control with Ready Alert Braking
  •  Trailer Sway Control
  •  All-Speed Traction Control
  •  Electronic Roll Mitigation
  •  Hill Start Assist
  •  Park Assist
  • Tire Pressure Monitor System


Power and Performance


Both vehicles offer a powerful and efficient engine. However, the Explorer focuses more on fuel efficiency and the Durango focuses more on pure power and torque. The Durango offers three powerful engines to choose from. The standard 3.6-litre V6 engine delivers an impressive 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The available 5.7-litre V8 HEMI engine delivers 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. If you are looking for something that is both powerful and fuel-efficient, the Durango also offers the available 6.4-litre V8 HEMI engine that comes equipped with a fuel saver system and delivers a heart-stopping 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.


When the 2020 Dodge Durango is put up in a battle against the Ford Explorer, the Durango comes out as the clear winner. If you have any questions about the new Dodge Durango, feel free to contact us today.
