    Thanks for posting Mike. Any idea what the Sangria Metallica Clear Coat looks like? The reason I'm asking is I really like the inferno red from 2010 300s. If the Sangria is at least closer to it than Octane Red Pearl Coat or Redline Pearl Coat, then that will help sway me on color :) Thanks.

    Thanks for the info! I know I've seen it on here, but any idea when dealers will start taking orders? Also, has it definitely been confirmed that the R/T will get the SRT styling? I just sold my '14 R/T so I could save a little cash for a nice down payment on an '18 R/T. Hoping for the SRT styling.

    Wow, power sunroof standard on Citadel. I like that very much. And ventilated seats? Nice...when I pass gas it'll help to share the wealth with my passengers (kids & wife)...my Dad will be soooooooo jealous. :D:p

    Decisions, decisions. Next summer I'm going to have to finally get off my posterior exhaust port and replace my Liberty. Citadel or RT will be HIGH on my list. :)

    2018 Dodge Durango R/T AWD in Redline

    June 27, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Dodge took the wraps off its new 475-horsepower 2018 Dodge Durango SRT, introducing America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV with 475 horsepower at the Chicago Auto Show in February.

    Now, new for 2018, all Durango R/T models share the all-new Durango SRT’s aggressive, functional performance hood and fascia as standard equipment. The performance hood features a center air inlet duct flanked by heat extractors, a front lower valence that houses a new cold-air duct system and LED fog lamps. Durango GT models equipped with the Blacktop or Brass Monkey appearance package now offer the performance hood, first seen on Durango SRT, as an available option.

    “Performance is more than stats, at Dodge performance is an attitude that permeates through everything we do,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “And new for 2018, Durango buyers can get SRT attitude with every Durango powertrain – from the 295 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 to the 360 horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 to the new 475 horsepower 6.4-liter SRT – strengthening the brand’s promise to deliver performance vehicles with world-class power, technology and standout styling our customers have come to expect.”

    In addition to the new front fascia, Durango R/T is one of only two models to be available in a B5 Blue exterior color (late availability); Durango SRT being the other. Front Park Assist, which uses sensors in the front bumper, is now included with ParkSense® Park Assist System and is now standard on Durango R/T models. New for 2018, Durango GT models now feature a standard power liftgate and Capri and suede bucket leather seats. Capri leather seats and the Technology Group are also available as standalone options, as well.

    For 2018, all Durango models feature a backup camera, a new sport steering wheel and driver-oriented electronic T-shifter which provides the driver with intuitive gear selection and offers an Auto Stick selector gate for added control. Customers can also opt for the available hand wrapped instrument panel with accent stitching.

    Dodge continues to deliver customization and features that its loyal Durango customers love. Durango R/T’s new look is standard with a BeatsAudio nine-speaker audio system that includes a subwoofer and a 506-watt amplifier. This BeatsAudio premium audio system offers studio quality sound in the customer’s vehicle, available on the Durango GT and Citadel, and standard on R/T. The Dodge Durango boasts class-leading towing and driving range, confident driving dynamics, advanced technology, aggressive styling, and with the addition of the new exterior performance fascia on R/T, now offers even more ways customers can stand out in a sea of sameness.

    Dealers are currently able to place orders and vehicles will start arriving in dealerships in the third quarter of 2017. Pricing for the 2018 Dodge Durango will be announced closer to vehicles arriving at dealers.

    Anything similar to this on the Challenger RT for 2018? I've seen the rumored few changes but nothing more official

    Challenger R/T stays the same in the looks department, carrying the same basic looks at the SRT392. Charger R/T STP continues to carry the SRT body kit, minus the rear spoiler in 2018.

    I will say that all Challenger R/T models will get a standard backup camera for 2018 (US regulations now) as well as the SRT392 spoiler which houses the backup camera.
