2018 Dodge Durango vs 2018 Ford Expedition

When it comes to finding the right large SUV for yourself or your family, there can be a dizzying array of options with a myriad of prices, features, and capabilities. In this 2018 Dodge Durango vs 2018 Ford Expedition comparison, we are going to look at two larger models. While these two vehicles are available with fairly similar seating capacity (topping out at seven passengers for the 2018 Durango and eight passengers on the Expedition) the Ford SUV is a much larger vehicle, and would be considered a full-size SUV rather than a midsize crossover.

While having large interior space can be an advantage, drivers who opt for the 2018 Ford Expedition will also pay a significant price in other areas. One of these is literal price. The 2018 Dodge Durango has a starting MSRP more than $20,000 lower than the one on the Ford model. For families on a budget who don’t have massive towing and hauling needs, the Durango will likely be the more logical and attractive choice.
