Meet the upgraded 2018 Durangos

by David Zatz on

Dodge has announced a number of upgrades for the 2018 Durango series, following the unveiling of the Durango SRT.

First, the Durango R/T’s appearance will be updated, with the SRT hood and fascia; this means the 5.7 Hemi-powered R/T will get a functional hood scoop with dual heat extractors, and a cold air ducting system, as well as LED fog lights. R/T buyers also get a standard 506-watt Beats nine-speaker stereo (available as an option on GT and Citadel).

The rear parking assist system, which beeps when an object is sensed behind the Durango — assuming it’s in reverse — will be augmented with front park assistance. The front-and-rear sensing system is standard on both R/T and SRT.

Buyers of the Durango GT can pay extra for the SRT hood — if they get the Blacktop or Brass Monkey package. The 2018 Durango GT will also be sweetened with a standard power liftgate, and Capri-and-suede bucket leather seats (also available as a standalone options).

All 2018 Dodge Durangos will have a standard backup camera, a new steering wheel, and a driver-oriented T-shifter with an AutoStick selector gate. Customers can opt for a leather-wrapped instrument panel, including contrasting stitching.

The 2018 Durango R/T will, late in the model run, be available in the famed B5 Blue paint, once reserved for the Durango SRT (and Dodge large cars). Dealers can order the 2018 Durango now, with deliveries expected in the third quarter of 2017; pricing will be announced later.
