Standard 2021 Durango gets facelift inside and out
Could a Hellcat Pursuit model be on way?
Since Dodge Law, the part of Fiat Chrysler that handles the changes required to make cars like the Durango Pursuit and Charger Pursuit ready for said pursuit, has shown off the new models in some exceptionally horrible camouflage renderings, we’re expecting some changes for 2021.
But what could those changes be? Is there going to be a 6.4L SRT version of the Durango Pursuit? Or maybe even a 710 hp Dodge Durango Pursuit SRT Hellcat? Ok, probably not. That might not be a bridge too far for Dodge, but we can’t imagine municipal budget meetings going over smoothly with “Hellcat” or “710 horsepower” on the police’s spending agenda for the year. Certainly not with defund the police protests ongoing.
More likely, the cop Durango will get the Tow N Go package that’s coming with the lightly refreshed 2021 Durango. That comes with the 5.7L Hemi V8 and gives the SUV the ability to tow up to 8,700 lbs (3,955 kg). Along with that, expect the revised front end and possibly the new interior of the standard 2021 model. It could also end up with a version of the 12.1-inch touchscreen in the Charger Pursuit in place of the 7.0-inch current display. The standard Dodge Charger hasn’t seen much in the way of changes for 2021, so we don’t expect much of a difference for the Pursuit model.
Dodge Law says that orders will open in September, so expect the full details on the 2021 Durango and Charger Pursuit models to arrive shortly.
