Comparing two midsize SUVs from the Fiat-Chrysler Automobile (FCA) group means comparing the 2020 Dodge Durango with the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Comparison Analysis

The two midsize SUVs are clearly two different ways to look at what an SUV is supposed to be. Shoppers who need to carry the most people and cargo will find the Dodge Durango fills those needs better than the Grand Cherokee.
