New integrated trailer brake on all Durango models equipped with the available Trailer Tow Package
July 12, 2018 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – The Dodge Durango – the ultimate “no-compromise” SUV – launches into 2019 with five distinct models – SXT, GT, Citadel, R/T and SRT – providing a solid range of performance and powertrain options, from the 475-horsepower Durango SRT – America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV – to the efficient V-6 power of the Durango SXT, with available all-wheel-drive capability on all models.
New for 2019, Durango GT models continue to deliver V-6 fuel economy, but now share the Durango SRT and R/T’s performance front fascia and LED fog lamps. The SRT-inspired performance hood with center air inlet duct and two heat extractors is available on Durango GT. Also new for 2019, Durango Citadel models get standard second-row captain’s chairs and Durango models equipped with the optional Trailer Tow Group now feature a new integrated trailer brake to complement Durango’s best-in-class towing capability.
“The Durango is our three-row Charger of the SUV segment, delivering uncompromised utility, advanced technology, class-leading towing and driving range, confident driving dynamics and aggressive styling,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “Customer demand for utility vehicles in the United States has exploded over the past decade, and with America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUVs in our garage and the new updates for the 2019 model year, Dodge Durango continues to separate itself from the competition with the performance and capability that our customers demand.”
Dealers can now place orders for the 2019 Dodge Durango. Vehicles are scheduled to start arriving in Dodge dealerships this fall.
