Almost identical in terms of specs, the only difference would be in build and experience.

The 2019 Dodge Durango is designed to provide a more performance-centric, city driving experience with more cargo space and a lower ride height for improved driving dynamics.

The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee has more of an off-road and all-terrain feel in mind with more ride height and a (slightly) more compact build for traction, handling, and balance on tough roads.
