Dodge is expanding its police vehicle lineup with a new pursuit version of is 2018 Durango. It’s available for police departments to order now, for a limited time.

2018 Dodge Durango Pursuit

The 2018 Dodge Durango Pursuit is powered by the 5.7L HEMI V-8, coupled with a full-time, active all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. It’s the same powertrain in the Dodge Charger Pursuit, the top-selling police sedan in the U.S. market. The Durango Pursuit also offers a two-speed transfer case for true low-range off-road capability and incorporates larger, heavy-duty anti-lock brakes that deliver a 60-0 mile per hour stopping distance of 134 feet.

“Unofficial testing results at the Michigan State Police 2018 model-year vehicle evaluation event created such a stir among law enforcement agencies that we simply had to find a way to build this vehicle,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – FCA North America. “The Dodge Durango is already known as the Charger of SUVs, so it is only natural that the new Durango Pursuit complements the Charger Pursuit in police fleets across the country.”
