Dodge has announced that the 2018 Dodge Durango R/T will have the same aggressive face as the more powerful Durango SRT. That means the Durango R/T will have the same front fascia, hood, lower valence, and LED fog lamps that debuted on the 2018 Durango SRT earlier this year.
The Durango R/T’s hood features a center air inlet duct flanked by heat extractors, while the front lower valence now features a new cold-air duct system. 2018 Durango GT models equipped with the Blacktop or Brass Monkey appearance package can also get the more aggressive hood as an option.
“Performance is more than stats, at Dodge performance is an attitude that permeates through everything we do,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “And new for 2018, Durango buyers can get SRT attitude with every Durango powertrain – from the 295 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 to the 360 horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 to the new 475 horsepower 6.4-liter SRT – strengthening the brand’s promise to deliver performance vehicles with world-class power, technology and standout styling our customers have come to expect.”
All 2018 Durango models now feature a backup camera, a new sport steering wheel and new electronic T-shifter which provides the driver with intuitive gear selection and an Auto Stick selector gate. Durango R/T models come standard with a Beats Audio nine-speaker audio system that includes a subwoofer and a 506-watt amplifier.
