2021 Dodge Durango vs. 2021 Toyota Highlander: PRICING

If you are in the market for a powerful, comfortable, and roomy SUV, luckily for you, there are plenty of options available. Still, the 2021 Dodge Durango and 2021 Toyota Highlander seem like two significant entries. Both are priced at around $32,000 MSRP, so let’s see how they compare.

2021 Dodge Durango vs. 2021 Toyota Highlander: FEATURES

Both have decent options on the interior and safety departments and start with plenty of features on the base trim. Both have sound infotainment systems compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth. However, with extra features, the 2021 Dodge Durango improves by a lot. From an even better infotainment system to premium audio, leather seats, 3-zone automatic climate control, every possible safety feature, and many more features on the inside along with the outside, you’ll have trouble counting all the upgrades on the 2021 Dodge Durango.

When powertrains are concerned, the 2021 Dodge Durango also comes mighty high with four options, both outstanding in their own regard. It comes with a 3.6L V6 with 290 hp and 258 lb*ft of torque as standard. The other options are a 5.7L HEMI V8, a 6.4L HEMI V8, or a supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 as found on the Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Dodge uses an 8-speed automatic transmission in either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive format. However, the Highlander has only two options: a 3.5L V6 as standard with 295 hp and 267 lb*ft of torque or a hybrid powertrain, which will get costly if it ever breaks down.

Bought 3 trucks. They delivered them to my house. Paperwork over the phone. I didn’t have time to go in to the dealer and the GM Nick Miller made it easy to buy. Happy to support a local business.

Nick Miller was a pleasure to work with and very knowledgeable. His communication skills with every step of the process was mind blowing! I loved that! And at the dealership we also meet with Steven Wells, his knowledge of the truck was mind blowing as well. Took the time to answer all our questions and explain everything about the truck. The whole team is the greatest! And a huge thank you to Gregg Floyd, he referred me to Nick at York. Thank you all for the hospitality, professionalism, and the personal experience my wife and I received.
