Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Ford has made a few tweaks to its mid-size crossover for 2021, such as making heated seats standard on the XLT, offering a heated steering wheel as an optional feature on that model, and including an eight-way power-adjustable front passenger's seat on the Limited, ST, and Platinum models. A Sport Appearance package is now available on the XLT trim, and it includes 20-inch aluminum wheels that are coated in Carbonized Gray paint.

Pros
Smooth and controlled ride,
cargo friendly interior design,
comfortable front seats.

Cons
Third row space is tight,
plasticky interior bits,
most desirable models are pricey.

The 2021 Ford Explorer is recognizable, but new. It should be on every family SUV shopper’s list.

Pros
Wide range of powertrains
Good looks
Great active safety tech
Available hybrid
Quiet interio

Cons
Hybrid isn’t refined
Not a great value
Cramped third row
Clunky second row

The 2020 Dodge Durango takes on family crossover SUVs with brute strength, and some old-school compromises.

Pros
Tough truck looks
Muscle car performance
High-quality interior
High-capacity cabin
Hilarious Durango SRT

Cons
Old-school safety scores
Poor fuel economy
Stiff ride at times
Showing its age

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The Durango is almost entirely unchanged for 2020, but the R/T trim sees some minute equipment updates, including a new Hemi fender badge for models with the Blacktop and Brass Monkey packages, a faux-suede headliner and accent stitching on the instrument panel for cars with the Premium interior package, and a new 20-inch wheel design.

Pros
Bold design, high tow ratings, V-8 is quick off the line.

Cons
Third row is only optional, aging platform, thirsty engines.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2020 Dodge Durango comes with all wheel drive, and rear wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.No significant changes for 2020.

Pros
Large touchscreen tech interface is one of the best in class
Strong V8 power provides exceptional towing ability
Has real off-road capabilities with 4WD and low-range gearing

Cons
Fuel economy is below-average, especially with the V8
Bigger and bulkier to drive than rival crossover SUVs
