2018 Durango gets stripes and new exhausts

by David Zatz on

If you wondered what Dodge was doing in Chicago, the answer is adding custom, factory-applied stripes and performance exhausts to the Durango R/T and SRT. SRT buyers can also opt for carbon-fiber interior trim and a lowering spring kit.

Available for ordering in March, an $1,195 package includes dual-center stripes on the front and rear fascias, hood, portions of the roof, and the tailgate, in five colors (blue, red, low-gloss metallic, low-gloss black, and silver metallic).

The exhaust kits are factory-tuned for improved flow and sound, using chromium 304 stainless steel with band-style clamps and polished 4-inch tips. The SRT system, designed for easy installs, is part #77072487, and lists for $1,850; it will be available in the second quarter. The R/T system, #77072479, is $1,595 and available now.

The Mopar spring kit drops the fastest SUV in its class by an average of 15 mm (0.6 inches); the company claims that gains include less rear-end squat during acceleration, less nose dive under braking, and reduced body roll while cornering. These $325 kits are part #77072488, and will be available in March.

The new SRT Interior Appearance Group, $2,495, available later this month, adds a “premium-wrapped” instrument panel, Dinamica soft-touch headliner, accent paint on speaker trim rings, and carbon-fiber instrument panel and door bezels.
