There's nothing like the 2020 Dodge Durango. This mid-size SUV delivers a first-rate performance like no other in its segment, from towing to handling. Take a look at this side-by-side comparison, and you'll see why the Durango wins over competitors like the Ford Explorer.


Towing Capacity

A mid-size SUV is valued for its capability, and if you want one that can tow anything from an ATV to a good size boat, the 2020 Durango should be your pick. The Durango offers a range of towing capabilities from its three-engine lineup, including the best-in-class 8,700-pound towing capacity from the 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine. The towing capacity of the Ford Explorer is much less impressive, reaching only 5,600 pounds.



Generous towing capability is just part of the well-rounded, impressive performance delivered by the Durango. The standard 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 kicks out 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, followed by the 360-horsepower available 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 with Variable Valve Timing. The biggest output is from the 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine, which boasts 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. That last engine comes standard in the Durango SRT.

The 2020 Ford Explorer falls behind with its relatively unimpressive performance. Its most powerful trim is the Explorer ST, which features a 3.0-liter EcoBoost® V6 that tops out at just 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque.



The 2020 Durango is designed for smooth performance and sharp maneuverability. Whether you're driving on the highway or in the city, you'll find that this SUV can effortlessly move from exit ramp to parking space.

Both the Durango and the Explorer have some performance features in common, like Trailer Sway Control, which helps with maneuvering the vehicle when trailering. However, the Durango again tops the Explorer with its 50/50 weight distribution in the Durango RWD, which improves traction and handling.

You'll see why the 2020 Dodge Durango is the superior SUV when you take one for a test drive here at Ginn Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
