Dodge Durango, for the 2021 model year, offers XT trim and the next-level GT trim which offers enhanced SXT Plus and GT Plus versions. For next year, there are changes planned. Those include the Plus formula that is heading one more step up the ladder with Dodge. The Dodge is planning an R/T Plus for the 2022 model year. In fact, the R/T is the first of trim steps to get the 5.7-liter V8 which produces 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. Thus, it sits just below the luxury-oriented Citadel trim. Moreover, the Plus version is going to add a lot of luxury and driver assistance.
Dodge Durango Followed by R/T Plus
Moreover, the Dodge is planning an R/T Plus for the 2022 model year. The R/T is the first of the trim steps to get the 5.7-liter V8 producing 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque and sits just below the luxury-oriented Citadel trim. The Plus version is going to offer a bunch of luxury and driver assistance which it does feature at a moderate discount to configure them a la carte. The R/T Plus is a way away from hitting dealership floors, but it’s still exciting.
Technology Group’s adaptive cruise control, advanced brake assist, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning are part of the equipment list. Also part of this list includes the Premium Interior Group’s upgraded instrument panel and suede headliner; the Safety and Security Systems’ blind-spot detection; a power sunroof; 19-speaker, 825-Watt Harman Kardon audio; and Nappa leather seats. The MSRP of $56,942 is configuring all of this on a 2021 Durango with no charge of white paint. Also, if you add the Premium Group that automatically does add $1,275 second-row captain’s chairs. Moreover, it does not appear those chairs are going to come with the R/T Plus. Then, if you back out of that, we are left at $55,667.
For the rear-wheel-drive 2022 Durango R/T, the MSRP is $53,820. That is then after the $1,595 destination charge.
Moreover, there is a $5,818 jump over the RWD 2021 Durango R/T. It is $3,413 more than a 2021 Durango Citadel but saves $1,847 over a similarly-equipped 2021 Durango R/T. In fact, there is a price differential that does not take into account any price increases for the 2022 Durango. It is since we don’t know yet what next year’s model will cost. Then it adds a all-wheel drive that takes the R/T Plus MSRP up to $56,420.
