Engine Battle: 2021 Dodge Durango vs 2021 Kia Telluride in Madison

June 2,2022

When it comes to SUV power, no other model can do it quite like the 2021 Dodge Durango. Even the 2021 Kia Telluride doesn't stand a chance.   This is because every Telluride is moved by a 3.8-litre V6 engine. Mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission and your choice of FWD or AWD, it makes 291 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. There are no other options.   Meanwhile, the Durango offers a full lineup of motors to pick from based on your trim level. The first three (SXT, GT, and Citadel) are fitted with Canada's favourite 3.6-litre V6 that delivers 295 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Then, the athletic R/T comes with a 5.7-litre HEMI V8. Producing 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque, it has Variable Valve Timing and a multi-displacement system. Next is the SRT 392. With a 6.4-litre HEMI V8 rumbling under the hood, it generates 475 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. Lastly, the top-tier SRT Hellcat is paired with a 6.2-litre supercharged HEMI V8 that pumps out an astonishing 710 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque.   Contact our team of agents to learn more about the Dodge Durango or schedule an appointment for a test run!
