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.

I enjoy the customer service at York, in the service department. That is why I use this location for my service needs instead of where I purchased my 2022 Gladiator. We kinda had a mishap, this last visit, some lug nuts, not tighten and we didn't get far, still in the York lot, my husband runs in to grab a tech and they fixed the problem! Good thing we didn't make it to the highway. Ugh!
