Large families with major seating needs may be interested in one of the models in this 2018 Dodge Durango vs 2018 Chevy Suburban comparison. While both of these vehicles offer three rows of seating and bold engine options, there are some significant differences between them. The 2018 Dodge Durango is a midsize crossover that offers seating for between five and seven passengers. In contrast, the 2018 Chevy Suburban is a full-size SUV that comes standard with eight-passenger seating.

The Chevy is much larger, with a correspondingly larger cargo capacity and base engine. However, it also has a significantly higher starting price, which may not make it economical for a car shoppers with only occasional large space needs.
