Power Battle: 2021 Dodge Durango R/T vs 2021 Kia Telluride in Fort Steele

May 25,2022

Are you in the market for one of the most powerful SUVs available today? If you answered yes, then you need to turn your attention to the 2021 Dodge Durango R/T. This mid-level trim offers athleticism and speed where models such as the 2021 Kia Telluride fail. Plus, you can find one at Cranbrook Dodge in BC right now!


Growling underneath the hood is a 5.7 litre HEMI V8 engine. Using Variable Valve Timing technology, the FuelSaver Multi-Displacement System, an 8-speed automatic transmission, and AWD, it delivers an astonishing 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. It can even pull up to 3,946 kg (8,700 lbs) without breaking a sweat.


On the other hand, all four Kia Telluride models are equipped with a much smaller 3.8 litre V6. Although it does come with an 8-speed automatic transmission, the standard drivetrain is FWD. You can opt for AWD if you’d like, but the output is only around 291 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. Its towing capacity is also limited to 2,267 kg (5,000 lbs).
