The US police will have a new instrument for following the bad guys. Dodge, Fiat’s brand dedicated to muscle-cars and sporty ones, unveiled the 2021 Dodge Durango Pursuit, which will offer more than 20 new standard features.
The AWD Durango Pursuit is powered by the standard 3.6-liter V-6 Pentastar engine or the optional legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine, both mated to the TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission. Other notable improvements include an IP-mounted shift lever to free up valuable space in the center console area, black steel wheels with chrome center caps, four programmable auxiliary switches and police-specific front seats to accommodate duty belts and enable easier access to seat belt latch points.
Other key features now being offered are the upfit-friendly Vehicle Systems Interface Module, a heavy-duty ‘BR9’ brake package, standard vinyl flooring and a tri-zone climate control system designed with K-9 units in mind. The Durango Pursuit has a top speed setting of 130 mph with the ability for customers to configure and limit for specific agency needs.
Production of the 2021 Dodge Durango Pursuit starts in the first quarter of 2021 at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit.
