2020 Dodge Durango Updates
The Durango has become a standout SUV among performance enthusiasts thanks to Dodge’s performance-oriented SRT lineup. Dodge is capitalizing on the model’s popularity with some amazing updates for 2020. The 2020 Dodge Durango SRT now offers buyers two new appearance package choices, including a Black Appearance package and an exclusive Redline Stripe option. Both packages were on display at the recent 2020 Chicago Auto Show and will be available to order next month.
“The numbers tell the story. As Dodge performance enthusiasts move through the Durango lineup to the fastest, most powerful, and most capable American three-row SUV, they want their vehicle to stand out in a crowd. Now, this new SRT-exclusive Black package gives SRT buyers an even more exclusive look and they can order it when they order their vehicle at the dealership,” said Tim Kuniskis, the head of passenger cars for Dodge, North America.
The 2020 Dodge Durango SRT gets all of its power from a 392-cubic-inch HEMI V8 engine, capable of producing 475 horsepower. With its ability to make a 0-60 mph sprint in just 4.4 seconds and a best-in-class towing figure of 8,700 pounds, it’s not difficult to see why the Durango SRT is loved by performance enthusiasts. The SUV will only look more the part of sinister beast thanks to the addition of the Black Package, which adds Gloss Black and Midnight Grey Metallic exterior accents to enhance its beefy appearance. Additionally, the Black Package also adds 20-inch Matte vapor wheels. On the other hand, the Redline Stripe Package is Satin Black and features accents in Redline Red.
The Black Package starts at $1,495, while the Redline Strip Package starts at $1,295. Both packages are available to pair with 10 different exterior colors: Vice White, White Knuckle, Redline, Reactor Blue, Octane Red, Granite Crystal, F8 Green, Destroyer Grey, DB Black, and Billet Silver. Sinister and stylish appearance packages have been a recurring thing for the Durango model as of late. Kuniskis noted that more than 25 percent of Durango SXT sales during 2019 included the Blacktop Package, which gives the Durango gloss black exterior mirrors, black badges, and 20-inch Blacktop wheels with a high-gloss black coating. On the Durango R/T trim, the Blacktop Package was chosen on 60 percent of the units sold — quite an impressive number!
Other updates in the Durango lineup go beyond appearance packages. A person familiar with Dodge’s pending products spoke to Motor Authority on the condition of anonymity and stated that the brand plans to debut an all-new Durango Hellcat during the 2020 New York Auto Show. Although Dodge has not issued any official notices or confirmation, the automaker did release a trailer for the next installment of the “Fast and the Furious” franchise that includes a quick glimpse of what’s likely the Durango Hellcat. In the commercial, viewers can spot a Durango fender with a Hellcat logo — a nod to the upcoming trim.
