Yes, We Really Like the 2018 Dodge Durango R/T and SRT

No one is more surprised than we are to find ourselves, well, gushing about Chrysler's current lineup.

If you're a Chrysler hater, sorry. Yes, we have biases of our own, but we're basically brand agnostic around here. We just like cool vehicles. And the 2018 Dodge Durango R/T and SRT models are just that: a cool vehicle, with clear Mopar performance design cues integrated with surprising smoothness into a three-row SUV platform.

Imagine a Dodge Challenger that grew up and became a mature adult while still retaining much of its muscle-car spirit. It's an SUV even a car-guy can love.

New for 2018, Durango R/T and SRT models feature factory-custom stripes and available performance exhaust systems. The Durango SRT also offers an available carbon fiber interior and performance lowering spring kit for an even lower stance and improved handling.

"Our Dodge/SRT performance enthusiasts are always looking for ways to make their vehicle their own," said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. "The available stripes and carbon fiber throughout the interior really give Durango a custom look from the factory, and they are perfectly complemented by Mopar's available exhaust systems and performance springs, which make Durango even more fun to drive."

New features available in the coming months include:

  • New dual-center exterior stripe design covering the front and rear fascias, hood, portions of the roof and the tailgate. 
  • Mopar's new performance exhaust systemsbolt on, high-performance units factory-tuned for improved flow, sound and overall performance. 
  • Mopar's performance lowering spring kit for enhanced high-speed cornering stability and consistency. 
  • The new SRT Interior Appearance Group, featuring a premium-wrapped instrument panel, Dinamica soft-touch headliner and accent paint on speaker trim rings, with an authentic carbon-fiber instrument panel and door bezels.
