Dodge’s Charger Pursuit is already a huge success among the American police officers, and today the company has revealed the new Durango Special Service - a vehicle designed for both the police fleet or fire departments and fleet customers. Dodge will start taking orders now and deliveries will begin in the second quarter of 2012.
Just like with the standard Durango, the new Special Service vehicle will be offered in rear- or all-wheel drive configurations and with a standard Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine and available 360 HP 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine. However, compared to the standard car, this special vehicle has received a heavy-duty brake package, heavy-duty battery, larger-output 220-amp alternator and heavy-duty water pump and engine oil cooler.
For the interior Dodge has added dome lamp and headliner, spot lamp wiring prep and the deletion of the third row of seats for more cargo capacity.
"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."
