After being revealed all the way back at the Chicago Auto Show at the beginning of February, Dodge has finally pushed past Coronavirus delays and has opened the ordering books for the Dodge Durango SRT Redline Stripe Package, as discovered by MoparInsiders. While it’s pretty much just a stripe, it represents one of the last new options the 2020 Durango will get before its major refresh for the 2021 model year. Save for a Hellcat upgrade, of course.
Still, it’s definitely a nice looking stripe. For $1,295, the SRT Redline Stripe is a wide, satin black dual stripe with a thin red border. As indicated in the name, it’s only available on the SRT model. It’ll join a range of thinner dual stripes offered in blue, red, gunmetal or silver, but those stripes aren’t SRT exclusive. The SRT Redline Stripe Package is available with all 10 Durango SRT colors.
This package comes just before the expected summer reveal of the heavily updated 2021 Dodge Durango. This major refresh will bring revised styling and interior, and key powertrain changes.
For the first time ever, there will be a Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat to slot above the currently 6.4L Hemi 392-powered model. Obviously, it will pack the 707 hp supercharged 6.2 liter Hellcat V8, and is expected to be just about the fastest way to get more than four kids to school with the benefit of third row seating. Its Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk sibling is only available with two rows.
The models beneath the performance oriented SRT performance lineup will almost certainly go hybrid only. This means the tried and true Pentastar V6 and 5.7 liter Hemi V8 will gain FCA’s eTourque mild hybrid system. This won’t allow for electric only driving, but will rather increase fuel economy and smooth out traditionally clunky stop-start systems. The Durango isn’t known for stellar fuel economy in any configuration, and considering most people by the V6 model as a mean-looking family hauler, we expect customers to enjoy the benefits of this system.
