Chrysler Group says it is now taking orders for its new Dodge Durango Special Service SUV, which is aimed at law-enforcement, fire-department and related fleets. Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of this year.
‘Adding Durango to our current Dodge Charger Pursuit and Ram 1500 Special Service vehicles allows us to offer a full range of fleet sedan, SUV and truck options to law enforcement and government agencies,’ says Peter Grady, vice president of network development and fleet operations.
The Durango features available 7,400-pound towing capacity, a 550-mile driving range (with the Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine) and available 360 hp 5.7 L HEMI V-8 engine. The vehicles are available in rear- or all-wheel drive and comes standard with a heavy-duty brake package, heavy-duty battery, larger-output 220 A alternator, and heavy-duty water pump and engine oil cooler.
