Chrysler Fleet is saying there are no changes to the Durango for 2020:

"2020 Dodge Durango Pursuit Fact Sheet
Auburn Hills, Mich. September 1, 2019 The Dodge Durango Pursuit will celebrate its first anniversary on U.S. roadways after its critically acclaimed introduction in August 2018. The Pursuit has been on the forefront of an overall push by law enforcement agencies to expand their fleets by adding fast, but fuel-efficient SUVs.

With its successful introduction, there are no changes for the 2020 model year. The Durango Pursuit is equipped with a Uconnect 7.0-inch display, which integrates law enforcement systems and innovative technology.

In addition to the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine that delivers a best-in-class 360 horsepower, Durango Pursuit offers the segment’s most advanced all-wheel-drive (AWD) system for maximum tactical performance, all-weather traction and fuel efficiency. With input from law enforcement officials, the 2020 Durango Pursuit continues to add improvements to meet the high expectations and performance needs of the heroes who protect us.

Highlights:

All Durango Pursuit models feature AWD and offer the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine rated at 293 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque or the available 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 model that’s rated at a best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque

----------

Unknown is whether they decided to use an H or V - rated tire for these models, which would allow higher top speeds. They were concerned about going to larger brakes to handle the increased speed, which would require larger/different rims, but that leads one to wonder why they don't just borrow the AWD Charger's rims and BR9 brakes. This may yet occur, if demand is sufficient.

The Durango Pursuit has been very succesful.
