Dodge Durango receives the Blacktop package

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 11, 2013

The sportiest Dodge Durango models – the Rallye and the R/T – are now available with the Blacktop package. So for the special price of just US$295 MSRP, the Durango gets a distinguishing Gloss Black crosshair grille and a set of Gloss Black 20-inch aluminum wheels with gloss black center caps. The Rallye could get even sportier with this $595 package that provides upgrades to the R/T’s trim with premium Digital Suede seat inserts.

It is complemented by Capri bolsters and red accent stitching, Black Comodo Elm trim and a power 12-way driver’s seat, including power lumbar. The paint colors available for the Durango with the Blacktop package include Bright White, Brilliant Black, Granite Crystal, Billet Silver and Redline Red. Durango has driving dynamics that’s different from what’s usually found in a sport-utility vehicle (SUV).

It gets four-wheel independent suspension, an almost 50:50 weight distribution and responsive steering and handling. The Durango offers over 30 storage areas, 50 seating configurations (which include second row captain’s chairs) and a rear cargo area that measures almost 85 cubic feet. This could fit a 6-foot couch with room for a coffee table or a 10-foot ladder with the front passenger seat folded flat.

In addition, the Dodge Durango offers over 45 safety and security features. In fact, it has been cited as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Furthermore, Durango offers the ideal combination of power and fuel efficiency. The much-awarded 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine produces 295 horsepower on Rallye models (the highest in its class).

It also offers the most extensive driving range of over 550 miles on one tank of fuel. The available HEMI V-8 engine with Fuel Saver multi-displacement technology offers the class-topping output of 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. The two engines offer best-in-class V-6 and V-8 towing with standard trailer sway control on all models (V-8 – up to 7,400 lbs. and V-6 – 6,200 lbs.).
