Dodge Durango SRT Redline Stripe Package is Now Available to Order
Dodge revealed the Dodge Durango SRT Redline Stripe Package at the beginning of February (2020) during the Chicago Auto Show. The Coronavirus pandemic spread since then, halting production and causing delays, but now Dodge finally announced that the brand’s pushed beyond all that and the Durango SRT Redline Stripe Package is now available on the order books, according to Mopar Insiders. Although some dismissed the appearance package as “just a stripe,” this marks one of the last individualized appearance packages available before the Durango gets a complete overhaul for the 2021 model year. There’s a Hellcat upgrade in the works as well, but it’s unclear if Dodge is pushing that for the 2020 or 2021 model — we’ll have to wait and see.
Even if the package simply adds a stripe to the model, it’s still a nice looking stripe. The SRT Redline Stripe Package costs $1,295 and includes a wide, satin black dual stripe accented by a thin red border and is available only on the Durango SRT trims. The package joins other existing packages that include a range of thinner dual stripes in red, gunmetal, silver, and blue — but none of these stripes are SRT exclusive. The SRT Redline Stripe Package is available on all 10 Durango SRT colors.
The SRT Redline Stripe Package arrives right before the expected reveal of the updated 2021 Dodge Durango. As with any major model overhaul, the 2021 Durango will not only sport revised styling, but also feature an updated interior and some key powertrain changes. For the first time in the model’s history, there will be an engine that’ll slot above the current — and not to mention massive — 6.4-liter HEMI 392 engine. The Durango SRT Hellcat will feature a Hellcat engine under the hood, packing 707 horsepower from the 6.2-liter Hellcat V8. The Durango SRT Hellcat is easily going to be the fastest way to get kids to school in a vehicle with three-row seating. The only other SUV to feature this engine is the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, but even then it’s only available with two rows.
Additionally, the trims beneath the performance-oriented SRT trims are slated to feature the same eTorque mild-hybrid system that’s currently available on the Ram 1500. Both the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and 5.7-liter HEMI engines are going to be offered with the eTorque system, helping the model increase its fuel economy and smooth out the stop-start systems. eTorque does not allow for electric-only driving, but it picks up the slack and helps round out a vehicle’s performance with some electrified assistance. It’s safe to say that the Durango isn’t known for its fuel economy figures, especially given its size, but the addition of the eTorque mild-hybrid system is sure to be a welcome addition.
