The three-row Dodge Durango R/T, aptly powered by the venerable 5.7-liter V-8 Hemi engine making 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque, is next in line to get some muscle car Hemi Orange flair inspired by the original orange hue of the classic Dodge muscle car’s Hemi engine. This special orange treatment debuted last year on the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger cars. Hemi Orange Plus and Hemi Orange Tow N Go packages add more features to the Hemi Orange motif.
First off, the 2022 Dodge Durango R/T Hemi Orange is not an actual exterior color. It is, however, available on all Durango R/T exterior colors: Destroyer Grey, Diamond Black, Octane Red, and White Knuckle.
From the outside, the Durango R/T Hemi Orange distinguishes itself from the rest thanks to orange and Gunmetal hood stripes (yes, you can add all sorts of Mopar stripes to your R/T, but these are different), Midnight Grey and orange exterior badging, a Satin Black taillight, and painted 20-inch Black Noise wheels (from the Blacktop Package)—which are the regular wheels, just painted black. We think an orange engine cover would have been fun touch, since we are talking about Hemi Orange, after all.
The inside gets a bounty of orange stitching: all three rows of seats, instrument panel, door panels, armrests, center console lid, shifter boot, and the steering wheel. There are also monochromatic Dodge Rhombi logos embroidered on the seats.
On top of this basic Hemi Orange treatment ($1,995) for the Dodge Durango R/T, the Hemi Orange Plus Package ($4,500) and Hemi Orange Tow N Go Package ($5,095) are optional. The Hemi Orange Plus Package throws in a power sunroof, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, advanced safety features, and more.
In addition to advanced towing features, the Hemi Orange Tow N Go Package for the all-wheel drive Durango R/T adds 20-inch Lights Out wheels, orange Brembo brake calipers, Bilstein shocks, and more.
The special Dodge Durango R/T Hemi Orange can be ordered through dealerships now, with build and price details available later this summer.
