Dodge Durango vs Jeep Grand Cherokee L

The Jeep SUV lineup has received a refresh for the 2022 model year, with the addition of three all-new three-row models. While three-row SUVs are in high demand from busy Spartanburg families, it has been a few years since Jeep offered an entrant in this space. Yet with the new Wagoneer, Grand Wagoneer and Grand Cherokee L, Jeep raises the bar in an already competitive class, offering vehicles that are sure to be a hit with Anderson families.

Though Jeep is only now reentering the three-row SUV space, such vehicles are actually not all that uncommon of a sight at the brand's dealerships. Dodge, a sister brand of Jeep, has long held a reputation for making excellent three-row family vehicles. The Dodge Durango, for example, is a seven-seat SUV already popular with Greenville drivers. So what should Greer car shoppers remember when comparing the Durango to its new Jeep cousins, such as the seven-seat Grand Cherokee L?

Durango vs Grand Cherokee L - Performance

When it comes to raw power, very few engines in the class even come close to the Dodge Durango Hellcat. This 6.2-liter V8 boasts 710 horsepower, 645 pound-feet of torque and a massive 8700-pound towing capacity. The Durango's standard V6 and two available V8 powerplants round out the options sheet, with power ratings from 295 to 475 horses.

The Grand Cherokee L comes with a 290-horsepower V6 engine. A 357-horsepower V8 is available. With a maximum towing capacity of 7,200 pounds and a 24-inch water fording capability, the Grand Cherokee L brings the Jeep brand another versatile, capable workhorse for everyday adventure or intense trail rides.

Durango vs Grand Cherokee L - Features

The Durango and the Grand Cherokee L both offer a range of trim levels with various interior options for Spartanburg drivers. Both vehicles use an advanced infotainment system driven through a 10.1-inch touchscreen. However, the Durango uses an 8.4-inch screen on its lower trims, while the larger screen is standard on all Grand Cherokee L models.

The Durango boasts a performance-focused interior with useful features for Greenville families. Second-row fold and tumble seats and a 60/40 split third row give Durango drivers extra convenience and cargo space. With fine features such as open-pore wood and quilted leather available, the Grand Cherokee L brings a touch of class to the segment. And with the most legroom of any vehicle in its class, the Grand Cherokee L adds utility to its extensive luxury.

Both the Durango and the Grand Cherokee L offer a wide array of advanced driver assists. The Durango has blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and a rear back-up camera as standard. The Grand Cherokee L, however, provides many features such as cyclist detection and lane-keep assist, as standard.


The Grand Cherokee L and the Dodge Durango are both great choices for South Carolina families needing a three-row SUV. These vehicles boast strong performance, plenty of space and advanced technological offerings. While the Durango SRT Hellcat brings the segment to new levels of performance, the Grand Cherokee L offers upscale refinement at a surprisingly affordable price.
