Dodge Durango Earns New Stripes with New Features
Durango models will feature dual-center stripes, carbon fiber interior, and Mopar performance parts.
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 fiber 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 fiber 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 the new dual-center exterior stripe design which 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. The stripes, adding a sinister factory-custom look, are offered in five colors: Bright Blue, Flame Red, Gunmetal Low Gloss (metallic finish), Low Gloss Black, and Sterling Silver (metallic finish), and will be available in March.
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. 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 will be available in the second quarter of 2018. The new Durango R/T system is available now.
