Let's explore how the 2016 Ford Explorer stacks up against the Dodge Durango.
When you're considering large SUV's for your family, you probably don't have a whole lot of spare time to wade through optional features. You won't have to when you choose a 2016 Ford Explorer over the Dodge Durango, because even though these sport-utes are similarly priced, the Explorer is loaded with more amenities. A rearview camera with washer -- which is imperative for safety in vehicles of this size -- daytime running lights, leather wrapped shift knob, automated low-beam LED headlamps, and integrated blind spot mirrors are all standard on the base 2016 Explorer -- while none of those features are standard, or available, on the base Durango.
The 2016 Ford Explorer continues with more features in the powertrain department, as it offers three engines as opposed to the Durango's two. Under the hood of the Explorer you'll find either -- a standard 3.5L V6 pumping out 290 horses, a 2.0L EcoBoost Inline 4 generating 240 horses or a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine with a whopping 365 horses, all mated to a six-speed automatic. By contrast, the Durango offers a standard 3.6L V6 also with 290 horses or optional 5.7L Hemi VVT V8 producing 360 horsepower with an eight-speed automatic transmission. While both heady rivals are nearly equal in engine size and horses, the 2016 Ford Explorer offers more powertrain choices with the efficient 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 option.
Let's show you why the 2016 Ford Explorer's option of the 2.0L EcoBoost Inline 4 engine is so relevant -- fuel economy. The Explorer achieves an EPA-estimated 19 city/28 highway mpg with this I4 EcoBoost engine while the Durango is no match with 18 city/25 highway being the best it can do!View Inventory
