As far back as July 2011, Allpar predicted the coming of the Dodge Durango special service vehicle. Norm Layton found and photographed a Durango squad at the Los Angeles police car tests, and in August 2011, Marc Rozman snapped one set up as a fire and rescue vehicle at the Safe Families Expo.

Dodge officially announced and opened ordering for the Durango Special Service. Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2012. The announcement creates a full range of range of fleet sedan, SUV, and truck options to law enforcement and government agencies, with the recent addition of the Ram Special Service pickup.

"The standard Durango has several class-leading attributes, such as power, towing and a driving range of more than 550 miles, so it is a natural to become a great utility tool for law enforcement and general fleet customers," said Dodge CEO Reid Bigland.

Durango Special Service Vehicle has all of the Durango's utility, including optional 7,400-pound towing capacity, and optional 360 horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine. Available in rear- or all-wheel drive, the Dodge Durango Special Service adds a heavy-duty brake package, heavy-duty battery, larger-output 220-amp alternator and heavy-duty water pump and engine oil cooler. A 5-year/100,000-mile transferrable powertrain warranty is standard.

Dodge Durango Special Service also adds a customizable rear cargo area with under-floor storage compartments and additional storage in the side compartments, a revised interior dome lamp and headliner, spot lamp wiring prep, and the deletion of the third row of seats for more cargo capacity (the second row still has separate air conditioning and heat controls).

Dodge Durango is an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) "Top Safety Pick," and Special Service models offer customers the same 45 safety and security features, including standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC), electronic roll mitigation (ERM), Hill-start Assist and standard Trailer-sway Control (TSC) to enhance off-road and towing capabilities. Other standard safety and security features include seat-mounted and side-curtain air bags in the front row. The curtain air bag extends protection to second and third-row passengers (third-row seating deleted in Special Service models).
