Durango to be set up as emergency vehicle?

by David Zatz on

The Walter P. Chrysler Museum recently hosted the 2011 Safe Families Expo; one display vehicle was a Dodge Durango set up as an emergency vehicle, with necessary interior changes. The original Durango was used by many fire, rescue, and police departments for non-pursuit duties, and Dodge appears to be setting up a formal package and fleet plan for the new Durango; an integrated control panel was likely accompanied by a siren and light-bar prep package. (See the Safe Families Expo page for an interior photo and another exterior shot).
