Article by Christian Andrei, on November 2, 2011

Mopar Underground has designed a special Dodge Durango Tow Hook image vehicle that’s presently being displayed at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The Durango design is already sporty but it becomes even more stunning with the Tow Hook. This Durango is a standout at the show with its bright four-coat orange and satin-black color scheme that’s used outside as well as inside.

The exterior uses a muscle-car inspired four-coat orange paint scheme that gets a satin-black roof, fascia accents and hood graphics. The highlights include blacked-out lighting and a set of twin-spoke 22-inch-by- 9.5-inch forged Superalloy wheels covered in Pirelli tires.

The performance-boosting custom mandrel bent exhaust system with Corsa parts produce a unique tone. The exterior of the Dodge Durango Tow Hook is improved with a piano black split-crosshair grille.

It has also been lowered by 25 mm for a more aggressive look. Its interior copies the exterior appearance and makes use of top-quality Mopar parts like Durango logo door sill guards, aluminum pedal kit and premium carpeted floor mats to make the cabin appear sportier. Orange leather trim can be found on the tops of the bolsters of the black, perforated Mopar Katzkin leather seats.

They also come with orange stitching and piping. The seat inserts use perforated Barracuda suede. Decorating with smooth suede bolsters with orange accent stitching and piping guarantees seats that draw a lot of attention.

Even the center front armrest makes use of orange leather trim, stitching and piping. The door panels also have orange stitching and silver metal brush trim that is seen on the dash right above the glove box. Other interior revisions include the SRT steering wheel, black chrome trim surrounding the vents, and piano-white trimmed radio/HVAC and center console bezels.

The 2011 Dodge Durango three-row sport utility vehicle marks Dodge anticipated return to the segment. Spacious yet a top performer, the Durango is bound to lead the brand's new product onslaught for the 2011 model year.

All new, the 2011 Dodge Durango features a sleek exterior and a modern interior, with fuel-efficient and dynamic engines at its core. Moreover, the SUV’s unibody structure is over 25 percent stiffer than its predecessor, allowing the 2011 iteration to offer a versatility, SUV capability and performance that are on a whole new level compared to its rivals.

This revival should prove to be appealing to busy customers needing a spacious vehicle that is flexible enough to accommodate three rows of passengers and their luggage, but still offering the dynamics and agility for a fun-to-drive experience. The new Durango should also appeal to customers seeking a vehicle that offers an ideal balance between functional versatility luxury and value.
