Dodge Turns up the Heat with New Radar Red Nappa Leather Seats in 2015 Dodge Durango R/T

March 26, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – 360 horsepower: Check. Standard seven-passenger seating: Check. New standard 20-inch wheels with high-gloss Granite Crystal finish: Check. New rich Radar Red Nappa Leather seats: Check.

Dodge is again responding to its customers, who have been clamoring for the segment-exclusive red Nappa leather seats since they were first shown as a Durango concept vehicle in the Mopar display at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Las Vegas.

Now, new for 2015, class-exclusive Radar Red Nappa leather seats are available to order on the 2015 Dodge Durango R/T. Previously only available on Charger and Challenger in the Dodge lineup, Radar Red Nappa leather complements the menacing and sporty attitude of the R/T’s exterior features. This is in addition to the black Nappa leather seating already available with the optional Premium Nappa Leather Group. The Premium Nappa Leather Group is available for a U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of just $1,195.

In addition, the 2015 Dodge Durango R/T now features an all-new standard 20-inch wheel design with a high-gloss Granite Crystal finish, giving the R/T a more performance-oriented look compared with the other available trim levels.

The R/T model also features a unique sport-tuned suspension, 20-inch performance tires, a 20 mm lower ride height, a sporty monochromatic exterior appearance with black headlamp bezels and LED daytime running lamps, R/T-embroidered leather seating with contrasting red or black stitching, the Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen, premium audio with nine speakers and subwoofer, power liftgate and HID low-beam headlamps.  The R/T’s 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine produces a best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque with a best-in-class tow rating of 7,400 pounds.

With a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, improved fuel economy and performance, LED exterior lighting, two interior touchscreens, a programmable digital instrument cluster and an available high-definition dual-screen Blu-ray entertainment system, the Dodge Durango reaches even higher levels of sophistication building on its proven performance, utility and comfort.

Named one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines for three years, Durango’s standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine paired with the standard eight-speed transmission generates an impressive 290 horsepower (295 horsepower on Rallye, Citadel and select Blacktop models) and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, and can tow up to a best-in-class 6,200 pounds. The V-6 powered Durango also features a best-in-class driving range of over 600 miles on a tank and up to 25 miles per gallon.

The available 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine produces a best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque with a best-in-class tow rating of 7,400 pounds. The 5.7-liter engine’s Fuel Saver Technology with cylinder-deactivation allows the HEMI V-8 engine to achieve up to 23 miles per gallon.

The instrument panel features a redesigned center stack that houses the 5-inch and 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreens. The bottom of the center stack houses a media hub with an SD card slot, USB outlet and auxiliary jacks, as well as a storage bin. The center console features a segment-first rotary shifter for the standard eight-speed automatic that adds another level of refinement over the traditional gated automatic shifter. The instrument cluster has also been given the high-tech treatment and now includes a full-color 7-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) digital screen. Standard on all models, this screen allows for drivers to customize in more than 100 ways how information is presented.
