Ok...I didn't know the 2018 R/T receives the same SRT hood.
Yep, you must have not read this whole thread then.
I wonder how well one of these would work in my Grand Caravan. I need something to hold the phone where I can see it because it doubles as my GPS.
quick refresher from the press release. Note that Citadel or SXT do not have the performance hood options.
New exterior performance features on Durango R/T and SRT include widebody exterior design and functional SRT hood with center air inlet duct flanked by heat extractors, as well as a new front fascia and lower valence to house new cold-air duct and LED fog lamps
Durango GT models equipped with the Blacktop or Brass Monkey Appearance Package now offer an available performance functional hood with center air inlet duct flanked by heat extractors like the one seen on R/T and SRT models
Correct, as stated before it is an option on GT Blacktop or Brass Monkey models and standard on R/T and SRT models.
What exactly does “widebody design” mean on a Durango?
the little lip flares they have around the wheel-wells on the SRT is my guess?
It seems...good find though. I never caught it.
This is correct... note how the GT does not have the lip.
Hard to tell how much flare it gives. Pretty generous use of "widebody".
I'm guessing that's got to be what they mean but the press release is incorrect. Those wheel well flares are only available on the SRT model, not the RT.
Correct.... its because the R/T has 265s and the SRT has 295s for tires...
I don't like the new SRT-R/T front. I prefer the crossbars. To me, the performance front end looks boring. But the rest of it looks nice.
I like it but understand what you’re saying. The bottom grille needed to be larger or something to reduce the amount of “blank” space.
I get what you are saying since there is a lot of lines and more detail in the standard front end.
I absolutely love the front end of the 2018 RT/SRT and plan on putting it on my 17 RT. I don't care for the pseudo-widebody wheel flares. They'll work great for someone like myself that is obsessive compulsive about aftermarket wheels that stick out past the fenders though, those flares will give enough to tuck perfectly.
Do the SRT's come with 20x9 standard or are 20x10 standard?
I think I like the RT/SRT as well as the Citadel front. I'm really not sure which I like best. I guess it'll come down to which one has the best features and performs best in a test drive. My wife may prefer the chrome bits of the Citadel though, so that may be an indication of which way the battle will turn.
My dealer only has one 18 on their website so far. A GT in Granite. It's listed for $46k, but I didn't look closely at the options. At least they're starting to come in. I'll have to take the Liberty over for an oil change at some point and give a looky-loo. Yes...I just said looky-loo...it's a free country.
Dodge Durango SRT comes standard with Forged aluminum, polished, five-spoke “Goliath” 20" X 10" wheels.
Optional are the Forged aluminum, fully-painted black, split five-spoke “Black Noise” 20" X 10" wheels.
This definitely should happen sooner or later. Maybe they are just waiting to see how the Hellcat Jeep sales are before they do it.
