The 2018 Dodge Durango SUV gets spruced up with a slew of Mopar designed appearance and performance goodies. As a result, Durango R/T and SRT models will feature factory-custom stripes and new performance exhaust systems. The Durango SRT will also offer carbon fibre loaded trims for the interior and a suspension lowering spring kit,
“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 dual-centre exterior stripe design which will be available in five colours covers the front and rear ends, bonnet, 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.
Mopar’s new performance exhaust systems are bolt on types that are factory-tuned for improved flow, sound and overall performance. Mopar’s suspension lowering spring kit will allow the SUV to be lowered by 15mm. 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.
Meanwhile, the new SRT Interior Appearance Group 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.
