This Dodge platform promises effortless towing - accommodating camping equipment, sporting goods, and off-road toys with ease.

It also proves more powerful than its 2018 Ford Explorer competitor. Let's compare the two.

2018 Dodge Durango

Engine: 3.6L V6
Horsepower: 295 at 6400 RPM
Torque: 260 lb.-ft at 4000 RPM

2018 Ford Explorer

Engine: 3.5L V6
Horsepower: 290 at 6500 RPM
Torque: 255 lb.-ft at 4000 RPM

The Durango’s impressive engine suite - which is ably assisted by an eight-speed automatic transmission with OD capabilities - ensures robust towing, generating 6,200 pounds when properly equipped. A responsive all-wheel-drive optimises handling when hauling heavy loads, while a multi-link rear suspension bolsters traction control. This promotes deft cornering when pulling a trailer. 

The 2018 Explorer, comparatively, can only offer 5,000 pounds of towing - and its strut suspension and four-wheel-drive simply can’t compete with the Durango. Operators will be forced to compromise their cargo needs.
