2021 Dodge Durango vs 2021 Chevy Traverse - A Mid-Size SUV Competition

2021 Dodge Durango vs 2021 Chevy Traverse - A Mid-Size SUV Competition

The mid-size SUV class is filled with vehicles that offer luxury, performance, and space, but two that stand out from the crowd are the 2021 Dodge Durango and 2021 Chevy Traverse.

2021 Dodge Durango Overview


The 2021 Dodge Durango is a true muscle SUV with seven model designs ranging from mild to wild. The Durango starts at a modest $41,656 for a standard V6 engine, seven passenger seating, rear back up camera, rear park assist, and automatic tri-zone temperature control. At the other end of the spectrum is the SRT Hellcat, starting at $102,291 and fearing a 6.2-litre HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine that delivers 710 horsepower and 0-60 miles per hour acceleration in 3.5 seconds.

The Durango seamlessly blends workhorse towing capabilities (best in the class) with interior comfort and smooth handling, making it a great car for families that are ready for adventure. A well-executed cabin, intuitive infotainment system, and high-tech features make the Durango a great vehicle.

2021 Chevy Traverse Overview


The Traverse is one of three three-row SUVs offered by Chevrolet. Offering a more carlike driving experience than the others, the Traverse can fit up to eight passengers in its spacious cabin. Starting at $36,198, the 2021 Chevy Traverse is available in six model variations, all with a 3.6-litre V6 engine that offers a good amount of power.

The 2021 Chevy Traverse features a well-appointed interior, but the standard features fall short of many rivals, including the Durango, which offers a more intuitive infotainment system.

2021 Dodge Durango vs 2021 Chevy Traverse Features


The 2021 Dodge Durango and 2021 Chevy Traverse are a similar size and offer many similar features that make a comparison between the two tricky.
However, in terms of overall performance and options, the 2021 Dodge Durango wins easily.

While the Traverse offers slightly more space for slightly less cost, it does not offer any other engine options for drivers who want more power and capability in their vehicle. In addition, the Traverse feels every bit of its delayed redesign, which was scheduled for 2021 but pushed back, with a dated style and technology that is not on par with the Durango.
