Mopar® is at it again.
Building on more than 10 years of low-volume, factory-backed vehicle customization, the brand today announced the Mopar ’22 Dodge Durango, a limited-production vehicle featuring a special-edition package of quality-tested performance parts and accessories from the Mopar Custom Shop. The new performance SUV will arrive in 2022 in conjunction with the 85th anniversary of Mopar.
“Our new, limited-production Mopar ‘22 Durango features exclusive Mopar performance parts and accessories,’” said Mark Bosanac, North America Vice President, Mopar Service, Parts & Customer Care. “Unlike any other aftermarket offerings, our performance parts and accessories are jointly developed and quality tested with the product engineering team and they are backed by the factory.”
Available exclusively on the 2022 Dodge Durango R/T AWD with the Plus Group and Tow N Go Package, the Mopar ‘22 Durango includes exterior and interior features only available on this limited-production, Mopar-branded performance SUV.
Available in DB Black or White Knuckle, the exterior of the Mopar ‘22 Durango stands out with exclusive features, including:
- Offset asymmetrical Mopar Blue stripe that runs on the driver’s side from the front fascia to the rear fascia
- Mopar Blue “Mopar” front grille badge
- Mopar Blue “Brembo”-branded brake calipers
Inside the driver-oriented cockpit of the Mopar ‘22 Durango, exclusive appointments include:
- Mopar ‘22 instrument-panel badge with serialized build number
- Leather and suede front seats wear a two-tone Mopar logo embroidered into the seat backs
- Mopar Blue accent stitching in seats, instrument panel, center console and doors
- Mopar pedal kit
- Mopar all-weather floor mats
The Mopar ‘22 Durango is powered by the legendary 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine rated at 360 horsepower and mated to the standard TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.
Delivering improved performance is the Tow N Go Package that provides towing of 8,700 pounds, an increased top speed of 145 mph, Track, Sport, Snow and Tow drive modes and a retuned SRT-performance exhaust with an unmistakable iconic Dodge exhaust rumble. The Mopar ‘22 is also equipped with Performance Pages, retuned SRT active noise cancellation, electronic limited-slip differential and SRT active damping suspension .
Standard 20-by-10-inch “Lights Out” wheels ride on Pirelli tires and provide a menacing look.
Dealer orders for the Mopar ‘22 Durango will be available in the first quarter of 2022 with vehicles slated to arrive in select Dodge dealerships in the U.S. and Canada in summer 2022. Production is limited to 250 units – 200 vehicles for the U.S. market and 50 vehicles for Canada.
Each buyer will receive a Mopar ’22 owner kit that features a custom-made, personalized metal certificate of authenticity with serialized vehicle-build number and a special rendering of the vehicle by the Mopar Design team.
