  • Dodge #durango SRT is the most powerful and fastest three-row #suv with its legendary 475-horsepower HEMI® V-8 engine and National Hot Rod Association–certified quarter-mile time of 12.9 seconds that also outhauls every three-row #suv on the road with best-in-class towing capability of 3946 kg (8,700 pounds)
February 7, 2018 , Windsor, Ontario - Performance enthusiasts looking for a three-row #suv with a factory-custom look need look no further than the 2018 #dodge #durango.
 
New for 2018, #durango R/T and SRT models will feature factory-custom stripes and available performance exhaust systems. The #durango SRT will also offer an available carbon fibre interior and performance lowering spring kit, giving the menacing #suv an even lower stance and improved handling.
 
“Our Dodge//SRT performance enthusiasts are always looking for ways to make their vehicle their own,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “The available stripes and carbon fibre throughout the interior really give #durango a custom look from the factory, and they are perfectly complemented by Mopar’s available exhaust systems and performance springs, which make #durango even more fun to drive.”
 
New features available in the coming months include:
  • New dual-centre exterior stripe design covers the front and rear fascias, hood, portions of the roof and the tailgate. The dual stripe is tailored to the signature NACA duct-hood vent to emphasize the #durango R/T and #durango SRT models functional yet aggressive design. With a Canadian Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $1,495, the stripes are offered in five colours: Bright Blue, Flame Red, Gunmetal Low Gloss (metallic finish), Low Gloss Black and Sterling Silver (metallic finish). Dealer orders for the new stripe package will start in March 2018.
  • Mopar’s new performance exhaust systems are bolt on, high-performance units factory-tuned for improved flow, sound and overall performance. The exhaust system’s chromium 304 stainless steel construction improves corrosion resistance. Stainless steel band-style clamps provide tight seals and make installation easy. Welded and polished 4-inch tips provide an aggressive appearance. Both exhaust systems were developed in concert with Dodge//SRT engineers and designers, which provided access to proprietary sound data, creating unique and unmistakable sound characteristics. The new performance exhaust system for the #durango SRT (Part Number 77072487) is priced at a Canadian MSRP of $2,855 and will be available in the second quarter of 2018. The new #durango R/T system (Part Number 77072479) is priced at an MSRP of $2,465 and is available now.
  • Mopar’s performance lowering spring kit enhances the #durango SRT’s already outstanding high-speed cornering stability and consistency. The new springs lower the fastest #suv in its class an average of 15 mm (0.6 inches) closer to the pavement for improved handling and an in-your-face vehicle stance. As with the performance exhaust, #mopar worked closely with Dodge//SRT engineers and used proprietary data — unavailable to the aftermarket — to tune the lowering springs to the factory-fitted dampers. Performance gains include less rear-end squat during acceleration, less nose dive under braking and reduced body roll while cornering. The new performance lowering spring kit (Part Number 77072488) is priced at an MSRP of $471 and will be available in March.
  • The new SRT Interior Appearance Group, which features a premium-wrapped instrument panel, Dinamica soft-touch headliner and accent paint on speaker trim rings, adds an authentic carbon-fibre instrument panel and door bezels. The SRT Interior Appearance Group will be available for ordering in February.
