Ford’s Dodge Durango Special Service SUV image

Recently Dodge declared it started selling to police departments a special version of the Durango SUV, offering a full lineup of cars and trucks to law enforcement agencies.

The Dodge Durango Special Service SUV is specially designed to keep up with the rigors of everyday use by police and fire departments and fleet customers. The new version will have a 7, 400-pound towing capacity, more than 550-mile driving range with the Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine and will also be offered with a 360-horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine.

Ford Crown Victoria was the one that dominated for years the police car industry. The competition between automakers reached new levels after Ford ended production of the Crown Victoria and replaced it with the Ford Taurus Police Interceptor and the Ford Explorer Police Interceptor.

“Adding Durango to our current Dodge Charger Pursuit and Ram 1500 Special Service vehicles allows us to offer a full range of fleet sedan, SUV and truck options to law enforcement and government agencies. We’re incredibly excited to add the Dodge Durango Special Service to our lineup of law enforcement vehicles,” said Peter Grady, vice-president of network development and fleet operations.
