The Dodge Durango finally received the SRT treatment for 2018.
The Durango SRT, which debuted in February at the 2017 Chicago auto show, is characterized by its 475-horsepower, 6.4-liter V-8 and aggressive front fascia with numerous intakes.
Dodge on Tuesday confirmed that you’ll be able to get the SUV’s mean-looking mug on the Durango R/T as part of the vehicle’s 2018 model year updates. Everything, from the vented hood right down to the low valence and fog lights is being added to the Durango R/T.
Durango GT buyers can also join the fun by opting for the Durango SRT’s hood which is being made available with the Blacktop and Brass Monkey appearance packs.
Durango R/Ts come with a 360-hp, 5.7-liter V-8 while lesser models come with a 295-hp, 3.6-liter V-6. The standard transmission is an 8-speed automatic and depending on the model buyers can choose between rear- and all-wheel drive. Two different AWD systems are used; V-8 models get a low-range transfer case while V-6 models use a simpler single-speed unit.
For 2018, all Durangos now feature a backup camera, sport steering wheel and upgraded gear shift lever. Durango R/Ts also receive a 9-speaker BeatsAudio sound system, front park assist, and the choice of a sweet B5 Blue exterior color shared with the Durango SRT.
The 2018 Dodge Durangos arrives at dealerships in the fall. Pricing information will be released closer to the market launch.
