Dodge Durango Special Service

The new 2014 Dodge Durango was introduced at the New York Auto Show. It delivers state-of-the-art technology in both form and function. It benefits of a facelift and class exclusive features have also been added. All these make this Dodge to be the most technologically advanced, fuel- efficient and stylish Durango ever created. And this could very possibly be the reason why the Durango enters the Special Service, with a version specially prepared for police and fire departments, as well as for general fleet customers.

The Dodge Durango Special Service is equipped with a heavy-duty battery and brake package, a 220-amp alternator, load-leveling suspension, a heavy-duty water pump and engine oil cooler. Exclusively for this model, we have a customizable rear cargo area featuring underfloor storage compartments and more storage space in the side compartments. The third row of seats has been dropped out in order to increase the cargo capacity. The special edition is characterized by a unique headliner and a red and white interior dome lamp and spot lamp wiring prep.

The Dodge Durango Special Service will be powered by the same engine as the regular version. This means that power will still come from the same 290 bhp (216 kW) V6 3.6-liter and the 360 bhp (268 kW) HEMI V8 5.7-liter engines. These two power units will be linked to a new and more refined eight-speed automatic transmission whose target is to lower fuel consumption by 15 percent.  The vehicle has some more other options, such as Uconnect access via mobile, engine block heater, trailer tow group, a ParkView rear backup camera, etc. These modifications make the already stout SUV more than capable of handling daily fleet use.
