As one of the premier Dodge and Jeep Brand dealers serving drivers from Philly to Cherry Hill, NJ, this is the sort of question we're asked a lot. Obviously, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee and the new Dodge Durango are two of the most widely respected SUVs on the market today. That being said, we know that all our guests have different tastes and expetations when it comes to buying or leasing a new SUV, which is why we've done our due diligence to give you a competitive comparison between these two exceptional models.

Now, it's worth noting that while there are many differences between the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Dodge Durango, there's also a number of similarities. Both the Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee are built on the same platform, so you can expect similarly roomy interiors and commanding performance on and off the road from both models.

That being said, how those strengths are apportioned between these two models varies significantly. For example, if you have a growing family in nearby Pennsauken, NJ, you may find yourself better served by the new Dodge Durango. With three rows of seating, this sizeable midsize SUV easily accommodates up to seven passengers. Now, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has a similar amount of interior space, but it only accommodates five passengers with two rows of seating. However, all that extra space is apportioned for luggage and cargo, making the Jeep Grand Cherokee a singularly compelling vehicle for drivers from Langhorne who like to go hiking and camping from time to time.

Of course, the interior isn't the only area where you can find differences between the new Dodge Durango and the Jeep Grand Cherokee. In fact, when you pop the hood, you'll find a similar array of engine options that differ in output between these two vehicles. For example, both can be had with a dynamic 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI® engine, but the Dodge Durango is the more powerful of the two. At its maximum output, the Dodge Durango churns out up to 710 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque, while the Jeep Grand Cherokee trails just behind it with 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. So, if you're really looking to show your muscle on the roads of the greater Jenkintown area, the new Dodge Durango is sure to be the SUV for you.

That being said, if you spend less of your time on the roads of Philadelphia and more time exploring the backwoods of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, you'll want to go with a new Jeep Grand Cherokee. With a class-exclusive Quadra-Lift air suspension system and the Jeep Brand's legendary 4x4 system, the Jeep Grand Cherokee travels over off-road terrain with ease and grace that's unmatched by other SUVs on the market these days.
