2019 Dodge Durango GT Trim Gets SRT Styling
The 2019 Dodge Durango lineup is getting a few enhancements when it arrives dealerships this fall.
Pricing for the SUV will start from $29,995 excluding destination and the 2019 Dodge Durango will be available in five distinct models: SXT, GT, Citadel, R/T, and SRT. The most noticeable change is heading to the Durango GT trim, which now shares the Durango SRT and R/T’s performance front fascia and LED fog lamps. Also available for the GT is the SRT-inspired performance hood with center air inlet duct and two heat extractors.
For the Durango Citadel model, it now gets standard second-row captain’s chairs for the 2019 model. The Durango R/T models are now available with Sepia leather seats and an 825-watt, 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. Meanwhile, all Durango models equipped with the optional Trailer Tow Group now feature a new integrated trailer brake.
The SRT trim gets a few minor changes as well, including available red seat belts and lightweight, high-performance Brembo brakes with two-piece rotors. Customers can also opt for an 825-watt, 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system for the cabin, and 20-inch wheels finished in Matte Vapor or Brass Monkey.

The Dodge Durango SXT, GT, and Citadel models come standard with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine with 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The Durango R/T trim is powered by a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine providing 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque while paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. At the top of the range is the SRT model with 475 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, capable of going zero-to-60 mph in 4.4 seconds.
The 2019 Dodge Durango is available in 11 colors: In-Violet, Octane Red, Redline Red, Reactor Blue, Destroyer Gray, F8 Green, Granite, Billet, DB Black, White Knuckle, and Vice White.
“The Durango is our three-row Charger of the SUV segment, delivering uncompromised utility, advanced technology, class-leading towing and driving range, confident driving dynamics and aggressive styling,” said Steve Beahm, head of Passenger Cars, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “Customer demand for utility vehicles in the United States has exploded over the past decade, and with America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUVs in our garage and the new updates for the 2019 model year, Dodge Durango continues to separate itself from the competition with the performance and capability that our customers demand.”
