Article by Christian A., on March 27, 2015

FCA has just introduced the new 2015 Dodge Durango R/T, an updated version of its well-known SUV which features class-exclusive Radar Red Nappa leather seats. According to the manufacturer, the seats were only available on the Charger and Challenger models, but now the Radar Red Nappa leather is ready to complement the sporty attitude of the R/T’s exterior features.

Dodge will still offer the black Nappa leather setting, which is available with the optional Premium Nappa Leather Group. For those who don’t know, the Premium Nappa Leather Group is available for just $1,195. As standard, the 2015 Durango R/T is available with 20-inch performance tires, a 20 mm lower ride height, a sporty monochromatic exterior appearance with black headlamp bezels and LED daytime running lights.

Moreover, we find the R/T-embroidered leather seating with contrasting red or black stitching, the Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen, premium audio with 9 speakers and subwoofer, power liftgate and HID low-beam headlamps. Under the hood, there is the same 5.7-liter HEMI V8 petrol engine developing 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque with a best-in-class tow rating of 7,400 pounds.

Regarding the standard 2015 Durango, the model arrives with the 8-speed automatic transmission, LED exterior lightning, two interior touchscreens, a digital instrument cluster and a high-definition dual-screen Blu-ray entertainment system.

Under the hood, there is a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 petrol engine bolted to the 8-speed transmission, producing 290 hp (295 hp on Rallye, Citadel and select Blacktop models) and 260 lb-ft of torque.

The engine is able to provide a best-in-class 6,200 pounds tow capacity and a driving range of over 600 miles on a tank and up to 25 mpg. The 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine delivers 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque and thanks to the Fuel Saver Technology with cylinder deactivation offers a fuel economy of 23 miles per gallon.

Inside, we find a redesigned center stack for the instrument panel, that houses 5-inch and 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreens. Meanwhile, the bottom of the center stack features a media hub with an SD card slot, USB outlet and auxiliary jacks, but also a storage bin.

In addition, there is a rotary shifter for the standard 8-speed automatic transmission. The instrument cluster has also been given the high-tech treatment and now includes a full-color 7-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) digital screen.
