2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2018 Dodge Durango
Battle of the Three-Row SUVs
When you need to haul lots of passengers in the Calumet City area, you’ll want to have a vehicle that’s up to the task. The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse
and the 2018 Dodge Durango are both standout three-row SUVs, and either one could meet the needs of your family. One area you’ll want to compare is each model’s standard performance. A little extra power can go a long way when you’re getting up to speed on Interstate 94 with up to eight passengers. The base trim Traverse uses a 3.6L V6 engine that puts out 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque along with a nine-speed automatic transmission. If you choose the base trim Durango, you’ll get an SUV with 3.6L V6 that delivers 293 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. That might be enough performance for some, but if you’d prefer more power, the Traverse is the better choice. Keep reading to find out more differences between the two in this comparison from Chevrolet of Homewood.
Cargo Space and Available Features
As three-row SUVs, both models include plenty of space for passengers. You can also fold down the second and third row of seating to increase your overall cargo room. That’s where the Traverse sets itself apart. It delivers 98.5 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, while the Durango only reaches 84.5 cubic feet. If you need to load up your next SUV with construction supplies for weekend projects, or want extra room for your next trip to the grocery store, the Traverse has you covered. In addition, the following features are available at higher Traverse trim levels:
- Adaptive Headlights
- Panoramic Sunroof
- Power-Folding Third Row Seats
- 120-Volt Power Outlet
- Auto Dimming Rearview Mirror
Sadly, none of these are available in the Durango. If you’d like to equip your next SUV with luxurious features, there’s only one real choice.
