Power Battle: 2021 Dodge Durango R/T vs 2021 Ford Explorer XLT in Mayook

May 25,2022

Do you want to own one of the most powerful SUVs on today’s market? If you answered yes, then you need to set your sights on the 2021 Dodge Durango R/T. Compared to the 2021 Ford Explorer XLT, you can easily see which model is superior. Plus, you can find this seven-seater at Cranbrook Dodge right now in BC!


Under the hood of the Ford Explorer XLT is a turbocharged 2.3-litre four-cylinder engine. Paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and RWD, it delivers a mere 300 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. It can also only pull up to 2,404 kg (5,300 lbs) with an attachment hooked up.


However, the robust Durango R/T houses a hardy 5.7-litre HEMI V8. Together with AWD and an 8-speed automatic transmission, it pushes out an astonishing 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. That makes the maximum towing limit around 3,356 kg (7,400 lbs). That is quite a lot more than the competitor.
