Dodge Durango Special Joins the Force

Dodge has announced the Durango Special Service, an SUV specially engineered for police, fire, and heavy-duty use. Built at the modern Jefferson North plant in Detroit, the Durango Special Service joins the Dodge Charger Pursuit and Ram 1500 Special Service truck, two more vehicles already available on special order to government agencies and other qualified fleet operations.


“We’re incredibly excited to add the Dodge Durango Special Service to our line-up of law enforcement vehicles, ” said Peter Grady, Vice President of Network Development and Fleet Operations. “Adding Durango to our current Dodge Charger Pursuit and Ram 1500 Special Service vehicles allows us to offer a full range of fleet sedan, SUV, and truck options to law enforcement and government agencies.”


The Dodge Durango Special Service is offered in both rear and all-wheel drive versions and with two available engines: a Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 and a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 rated at 360 horsepower. Special equipment on the hardcore Durango includes heavy-duty brakes, battery, alternator, water pump, and an engine oil cooler.


“The standard Durango has several class-leading attributes, such as power, towing and a driving range of more than 550 miles, so it is a natural to become a great utility tool for law enforcement and general fleet customers, ” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, Dodge Brand. “This Special Service version will no doubt be a major asset to any agency in need of a durable, yet comfortable, SUV.”
