Families with a need for plenty of passenger and cargo space may be attracted to the stylish versatility available on a large SUV. In this 2016 Dodge Durango vs 2016 Chevy Tahoe comparison, we will look at two heavy hitters in this class. One of the first things to point out is that the 2016 Dodge Durango is somewhat smaller than the Tahoe. It offers standard seating for seven in all trims, with six seats available. The 2016 Chevy Tahoe comes standard with eight seats in the base LS trim and seven in the elite LTZ trim. In this comparison, the Durango has the advantage in compact maneuverability, but when it comes to sheer numbers the Tahoe takes the lead.
