By Emily Eppley | June 23rd, 2018

The new 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit debuted at the National Sheriffs’ Association Show in New Orleans this week with pursuit-focused enhancements. Dodge has been providing quality police fleet vehicles with the proven Charger Pursuit and it seeks to expand appeal to an even broader audience with additional performance features. According to Steve Beahm, head of passenger car brands North America, “The Durango gives law enforcement agencies even more of what they want: a more spacious interior room, a higher ride height, HEMI V-8 performance, and efficiency.”

The most notable change to the 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit is the redesigned front fascia with integrated brake-cooling air ducts for improved brake performance and durability. The Durango Pursuit also features a performance-tuned suspension with load-leveling NIVOMAT shocks, a pursuit-rated brake package with 13.8-inch front and 13-inch rear rotors that deliver a 134-foot 0-to-60 mph stopping distance, front- and rear-stabilizer bars, and 18-inch aluminum wheels.

Police can still expect a dynamic driving experience with the standard Durango engine. The 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit is equipped with the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that produces at 293 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. They can also upgrade to a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 rated at 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque.

All Durango Pursuit models come with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Dodge Durango Pursuit V-8 models include the segment’s most advanced all-wheel-drive system with an exclusive active transfer case to improve real-world fuel economy, traction, and handling.

Additional features include a spot-lamp wiring-prep package, red/white auxiliary dome lamp, 220-amp alternator, 800-cold-cranking-amp battery, heavy-duty oil cooler and water pump, power-locking fuel-filler door, eight-way power adjusting driver seat controls, certified speedometer, and class-exclusive K-9-friendly Tri-Zone interior control.

The 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit earns an EPA-estimated 25 mpg highway with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 and 22 mpg highway with the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine. The V-8-powered Durango can tow a best-in-class 7,200 pounds and offers standard trailer-sway control. Durango Pursuit features the segment’s longest wheelbase at 120 inches for added stability and handling and 8.1 inches of ground clearance for added off-road capability.
