Durango R/T gets optional red Nappa seats

by David Zatz on

Two years after they were shown in a concept car, Dodge is providing optional “Radar Red”  Nappa leather seats on the Dodge Durango R/T. They were previously only put into the Dodge Charger and Challenger, and are now an $1,195 option (black Nappa leather, already available at this price, will continue).

The 2015 Dodge Durango R/T also adds a new standard glossy “Granite Crystal” (gray) set of 20-inch wheels.  It continues to be differentiated from other Durangos by a sport-tuned suspension with a 20mm lower ride height, black headlamp bezels and LED daytime running lamps, embroidered leather seating with contrasting red or black stitching, 8.4-inch touchscreen telematics with nine speakers, power liftgate, and HID low-beam headlamps.

The R/T’s 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine produces a best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque with a best-in-class tow rating of 7,400 pounds.
