“Dodge already leads the police pursuit sedan business with the proven Charger Pursuit,” explained Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge//SRT, Chrysler, and FIAT, FCA in North America, “…and we believe the 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit SUV will expand our appeal to an even broader audience and take our game to the next level in terms of performance.”
The 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit recently debuted at the National Sheriffs’ Association Show in New Orleans, changing the landscape of first responder SUV models. This vehicle will be available this summer and is sure to enhance the way law enforcement agencies get around. The new Dodge Durango Pursuit features a completely revamped front fascia complete with integrated brake-cooling air ducts in order to bring you improved durability and braking.
This Durango Pursuit boosts both your stability and control via the load-leveling, performance-tuned suspension. Forces will be able to pick between the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, getting 293 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, and the available 5.7L HEMI V8 engine, getting you a best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque.
The Durango Pursuit comes outfitted with a two-speed transfer case for low-range off-roading capability and larger anti-brakes that are more heavy duty. This lets these brakes have a 60-0 MPH stopping distance of just 134 feet. Additional features include the ParkView rear backup camera featuring ParkSense, 800 cold cranking amp (CCA) battery for the V8 engine only, as well as the 13.8-inch front and 13-inch rear pursuit-rated braking package. The V8 version of this model is also equipped with the most technologically advanced AWD system in the segment, along with a segment-exclusive active transfer case in order to enhance the vehicle’s fuel efficiency. The 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit is sure to change the world of law enforcement transportation forever and our team at Millsboro Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, a proud member of the Preston Automotive Group, is happy to a part of that innovation.
