2015 Dodge Durango vs. 2015 GMC Acadia

With the introduction of so many recent compact crossovers and small SUVs boasting high marks for both power and efficiency, the full-size SUV market is more competitive now than ever before.

The 2015 Dodge Durango and the 2015 GMC Acadia encompass what the full-size SUV class stands for: epic exteriors, mighty engines matched with superior handling, and spacious seating for the whole family.

Can you see yourself in one of these high-style monster-sized people movers? Manhattan, Bronx, and Queens area SUV seekers can sit back and see for themselves as we review their impressive performance, comfort, and safety features.

Make a Grand Entrance

The Dodge Durango has five body styles, each of which feature an eye-catching crosshair grille, a color-front fascia that gives it an aggressive truck-like nose, and brilliant LED headlights that look more jewel than fixture.

The GMC Acadia has an expansive grille that acts as the backdrop for its bold three-lettered branding set front and center. A wraparound fascia gives the Acadia an elevated look that commands attention.

Both of these hefty SUVs have a standard 3.6-liter V6, but if a solid tow-er is what you need, choose the Durango's available V8 engine that helps you haul with ease. The Durango's standard eight-speed automatic transmission makes for smooth shifting and impeccable handling for a large vehicle.

In comparison, the GMC Acadia's six-speed automatic lacks the agility that the eight-speed gives the Durango. The Dodge Durango's estimated fuel efficiency of 18 city and 25 highway mpg is good for the class, just beating out the GMC Acadia's 17 city and 24 highway mpg.

Leading Seven Seaters

The interiors of the 2015 Dodge Durango and the 2015 GMC Acadia demonstrate luxury at its finest. Choose from mesh and cloth-trimmed seating or available perforated leather for the interior. The two have quite a bit in common: six-speaker sound systems, Bluetooth capability, and a leather-wrapped tilt and telescopic steering wheels with mounted controls, to name a few.

�When it comes to cargo, the 2015 GMC Acadia's colossal 116.1 cubic feet of cargo room makes it one of the largest cargo capacities in an SUV. But the Dodge Durango boasts seat-folding flexibility that offers up to 50 possibilities for cargo and passengers to join forces. And from its 60/40 split second-row seat, 50/50 split-folding third row, and a fold-flat passenger's seat, we believe it!

The 2015 Dodge Durango has a standard 5.0-inch touchscreen and an optional 8.4-inch Uconnect system that unlocks a suite of technologies, from creating your own mobile WiFi hotspot to voice texting command with Bluetooth and more.

The GMC Acadia offers OnStar with Directions & Connections for six months, a rearview camera, and a three-month trial of SiriusXM radio.

Safe SUVs

The 2015 Dodge Durango and the 2015 GMC Acadia have each earned high marks from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration across crash test ratings. Both Dodge and GMC realize the importance of keeping you and your family safe in transit and each set out to make their smart SUVs safety savvy too. Both offer multi-stage airbags, tire pressure monitoring, remote keyless entry, and traction and stability control for complete safety.

When it's time to choose the SUV that's right for you and your family, the Dodge Durango and the GMC Acadia don't make it easy. Manhattan, Bronx, and Queens area drivers looking for a people mover that handles well on both narrow city streets and freeway stretches will appreciate that the 2015 Dodge Durango doesn't settle when it comes to nimble shifts, impressive efficiency, and a powerful engine.
