V6 Power Battle: 2021 Dodge Durango vs 2021 Hyundai Palisade in Fairmount

June 2,2022

Are you in the market for a hardy SUV with Canada’s favourite engine rumbling underneath the hood? Then you need to take a look at the 2021 Dodge Durango lineup. When compared to the 2021 Hyundai Palisade, you can easily which model offers the superior base powertrain.

 

While the Durango can be fitted with one of four different motors, many of the trim levels are equipped with the best-selling 3.6-litre Pentastar V6. Thanks to Variable Valve Timing (VVT), Engine Stop/Start (ESS) technology, and an 8-speed automatic transmission, it is able to produce 295 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. It also gets approximately 12.4 L/100 km (19 mpg) in the city and 9 L/100 km (26 mpg) on the highway. As for towing, it can pull between 2,812 and 3,946 kg (6,200 and 8,700 lbs).

 

On the other hand, the Palisade is fitted with a 3.8-litre V6. Though also paired with an 8-speed automatic, it delivers only 291 hp; and it can haul a mere 2,267 kg (5,000 lbs), greatly reducing trailering options for drivers. Cargo will be compromised and frustration will be felt.
