2019 Dodge Durango GT Puts On A Sportier Face

Facelift

The nose from the Durango R/T and SRT ports over to the V6 GT as the biggest change for 2019.

Dodge has announced a series of updates to the Durango. And while most of these updates are relatively minor, customers interested in the Durango GT may be interested to know that this trim level literally is putting on a fresh face. For 2019, the Durango GT gets the same front end – including the fascia and LED fog lamps – as the R/T and SRT models. Durango GT buyers can even spec the SRT-style hood with the center air duct and dual heat extractors, giving the V6 model the look of the V8 versions without having to spec the bigger engine.

The GT model can also now be specced with cloth seats and new 20-inch wheels. (That's the 2019 Durango GT pictured in black; the other shots are from the 2018 model for reference.) As before, the base SXT, mid-level GT, and luxed-up Citadel models come powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, channeling 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque through an eight-speed automatic transmission to either the rear wheels or all four. The R/T model packs the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 (also available on the Citadel) with 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque, while the top-of-the-line SRT boasts the more potent 6.4-liter Hemi, good for 475 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque.

Other enhancements for the 2019 model year include standard second-row “captain's chairs” on the Ciadel, a new 925-watt, 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, a new integrated trailer brake, new wheel finishes, and three new paint options: F8 Green, Destroyer Gray, and Reactor Blue. Otherwise it's essentially the same Durango as last year's (and every other since its introduction in 2011). Pricing as before starts at $29,995 (plus $1,345 destination) for the base Durango SXT and tops out at $62,995 for the SRT performance model (before options, of course.)
