    I wonder how it'd look dressed in a modern Sinatra Blue. I'm secretly hoping to get my Challenger HELLCAT WIDEBODY in that hue....praying....wishing!!!

    It seems as though every time I find a vehicle that I really like (love), there is some restriction to the interior that I truly desire. At build and price, I couldn't get the two-tone interior on the DURANGO SRT....only on the CITADEL and R/T

    Just an FYI to everyone, not all GTs come with an SRT hood.

    • Functional performance hood that debuted on new 2018 Durango SRT is now available on Durango GT when equipped with Blacktop or Brass Monkey Appearance Package

    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.

    SRT and RT share the same front fascia, so Citadel keeps the crosshair grill then for now?

    Ok, thanks. I like both actually, so it doesn't matter to me, but I'm torn between RT and Citadel.

    They need to quit offering premium style on lower level vehicles.

    *Ram Limited is top-of-the-line, and had a grille all it's own. Now that grille has been added to Longhorn (I'm kinda ok with that, they're basically the same offering with minor tweaks here and there) but for '18, the same grille will be on Sport Appearance as well, which is offered in Big Horn and Laramie trims.
    *Charger SRT front is coming all the way down to SXT trim, along with RT. What. The Hell.
    * Durango RT and SRT have the same appearance. RT/SRT hood available on GT....V6 power.

    Why don't they just make everything look like Hellcats? Then no one would ever know if you're rocking V6 or V8 or blown V8. Sleepers for all!

    They are both very different and very clear after you drive both especially if both are Hemi powered.
    Citadel is more like a Merc GL, powerful, yet quiet with a nice smooth ride. whereas the R/T is more 6-7 seat Charger. More brash, in your face attitude with slightly firmer ride and a lot more Hemi sound.

    I'm looking forward to shopping next year. I have lots of thoughts on what we're looking for and want in our next vehicle. But I'm really looking forward to actually going to the dealer and getting my butt in the seats. And then I can really make a valid comparison in my head. There's only so much I can glean from the websites...there's nothing like seeing a vehicle in person.

    I'd go now to look, but the 2018's aren't out yet, and I really want to see them specifically. That and I'm afraid I'd come back home with something that I shouldn't...and get myself in trouble with the boss. :)
