2023 Dodge Durango vs. 2023 Land Rover Range Rover
The 2023 Dodge Durango is a top shelf SUV with a sporty appearance, mammoth towing capacity and generous seating capacity. But how does it stack up to the 2023 Land Rover Range Rover, an SUV praised for its exquisite appearance, sumptuous cabin and robust powertrains?
Design & Style
The Land Rover Range Rover uses a design approach which is the opposite of Dodge. While the Dodge chooses a rugged, macho appearance, the Land Rover goes for an elegant presentation. It offers 3 powertrain options with the ability to seat 7 in absolute comfort. Of course, Land Rover is also renowned for their off roading capabilities and as such it comes with additional ground clearance.
The Dodge Durango rejects the elegance espoused by the Land Rover and instead emphasizes a tough and imposing appearance, at least in the exterior. Inside, it seats up to seven passengers in comfort which rivals the Land Rover, with supple leather seats that provide impeccable back support and numerous other perks which are highlighted below. Its latest features for the year include standardized heated seats and four new paint colors, which are Frostbite, Red Oxide, Triple Nickel and Night Moves.
Technology & Safety
The Durango comes with extensive gear designed to protect its passengers from every threat, such as emergency automated brakes, multiple airbags, adapted cruise control, blind area monitoring, and notifications for cross traffic in the rear. Comforts within its cabin include a ten inch touch display, RCA and HDMI ports, Bluetooth, Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, climate control and navigation in dash.
The Land Rover Range Rover is equipped with the same safety gear found in the Dodge, including emergency automated brakes, adapted cruise control, multiple airbags and pedestrian detection. Comforts within its cabin include a thirteen inch touch display, satellite radio, Meridian audio system, Android Auto or Apple CarPlay and climate control.
Those that purchase the Land Rover Range Rover P400 will get an inline 6, turbocharged engine that works with a hybrid forty eight volt system to generate 395 horsepower, with the ability to accelerate from zero to sixty in around 6 seconds with a maximum towing capacity of 8,200 pounds. Those that purchase the Dodge Durango can get a V8 engine capable of generating 360 horsepower with the ability to accelerate from zero to sixty in about 6.2 seconds, with a max towing capacity of 8,700 pounds.
The Bottom Line
Both SUVs are evenly matched when it comes to seating capacity, safety, horsepower and acceleration. But the Dodge Durango has an edge in towing capacity, and the Land Rover Range Rovers six figure introductory cost makes it overpriced, especially considering the tight 3rd row headspace, hybrid plugin only available for base models and the irritating haptic buttons, which makes the Dodge Durango the winner.
