    Offering SRT Styling on Other 2018 Durango Models Now is a Smart Move

    Offering SRT Styling on Other 2018 Durango Models Now is a Smart Move-srt-2018-dodge-durango-jpg

    Dodge has announced that the exterior styling of the new Durango SRT will be available on lower performance models and while some people hate the idea of the high performance look on the non-performance models – I think that this move comes at the perfect time.

    It has become quite common for an automaker to introduce styling from a high performance model on a lower performance version, and while that makes the low performance models more popular, that move often upsets the people who have the high performance version. One good example is addition of the Charger SRT and Scat Pack exterior design to the V6-powered Charger SXT, as owners of the 485-707 horsepower models are grumbling that their high performance models could be mistaken for a lowly V6. Some people might call that complaint foolish and others might agree, but in any case, moving styling cues “downstream” tends to annoy the people who bought the higher performance, higher priced models.

    However, Dodge has timed the launch of the Durango SRT and the introduction of the SRT-inspired styling for the lower performance models in a way that should prevent anyone from getting their feelings hurt.

    SRT Styling for the RT and GT
    The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT comes with a vented performance hood with an integrated hood scoop and an aggressive front fascia, both of which bolster engine cooling air flow and overall aerodynamics while making for one mean looking SUV. That same front fascia and hood will also be standard equipment on the 2018 Dodge Durango R/T with the 360hp/390tq 5.7L Hemi and, like the Durango SRT, the sportier Durango R/T is available in B5 Blue.

    Also, those buyers opting for the 2018 Dodge Durango GT with the 3.6L Pentastar V6 can add the SRT performance hood when they equip their vehicle with either the Blacktop Appearance Package or the Brass Monkey Appearance Package.
