Dodge will start to offer a Durango Special Service model for its fleet customers. The Dodge Charger Pursuit recently made its debut. Police and fire departments as well as fleet customers would be pleased to know that the Dodge Durango Special Service SUV is designed particularly to withstand the rigors of daily use.
The order books have already been opened by Chrysler Group fleet operations. Deliveries will start in the second quarter of 2012. Reid Bigland, President and CEO – Dodge Brand, said that the standard Durango features several elements that lead in its class like power, towing and a driving range of over 550 miles. This makes it a great fit to become an excellent utility tool for law enforcement and general fleet customers.
He added that this Special Service version is sure to be a primary asset to any agency that needs an SUV that’s durable but comfortable too. The Dodge Durango Special Service comes with all of the functionalities that can be expected from an SUV that leads its class. It offers a towing capacity of up to 7,400 pounds. It could be powered by either the Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine or the 360 horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine, resulting to a driving range of more than 550 miles. The Dodge Durango Special Service model is available in rear- or all-wheel drive.
No task is too difficult as it is equipped with a heavy-duty brake package, heavy-duty battery, larger-output 220-amp alternator and heavy-duty water pump and engine oil cooler. Customers don’t have to worry about repair costs for these parts too since the vehicle comes with a 5-year/100,000-mile fully transferrable powertrain warranty.
The rear cargo area of the Dodge Durango Special Service is customizable. It has storage compartments under the floor and more storage is available in the side compartments. Dodge also gives customers added options such as a special service interior dome lamp and headliner, spot lamp wiring prep and the removal of the third row of seats to have a bigger cargo capacity. Even when the third row has been taken out, there still are separate air conditioning and heat controls for the second row.
