Cargo Space and Towing on the 2018 Dodge Durango

The Tahoe is the larger model in this 2018 Dodge Durango vs 2018 Chevy Tahoe comparison, but its ability to tow and haul is not as dominating as you might think. The 2018 Tahoe offers up to 94.7 cubic feet of cargo space with its rear seats folded down, while the 2018 Dodge Durango offers up to 84.5 cubic feet. While ten cubic feet can be a large cargo advantage, the 2018 Dodge Durango balances that out with a significant lead on affordability when it comes to mileage and vehicle price.

The 2018 Dodge Durango also has a surprising strength when it comes to towing. While the base 6,400 pounds of towing capacity on the 2018 Tahoe is slightly higher than the starting towing capacity of the 2018 Durango with its base 3.6-liter V-6 engine, drivers who opt for the 5.7-liter V-8 on the Durango can haul up to 7,400 pounds, and the 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 on the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT can even deliver a Best-in-Class 8,700 pounds of trailering. Both of these numbers are significantly higher than what the 2018 Chevy Tahoe can offer, even though this model is larger than the Dodge.
