Dodge is taking its new Durango Enforcer to the Big Easy, introducing the new 2019 model at the 2018 National Sheriffs’ Association Show, June 15-19 in New Orleans.
“Dodge already leads the police pursuit sedan business with the proven Charger Enforcer, and we believe the 2019 Dodge Durango Enforcer SUV will expand our appeal to an even broader audience and take our game to the next level in terms of performance,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge//SRT, Chrysler, and FIAT, FCA - 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.”
New for 2019, the 2019 Dodge Durango Enforcer features a new front fascia with integrated brake-cooling air ducts for improved brake performance and durability. Durango Enforcer also now features a performance-tuned, load-leveling suspension to bolster control and stability, enhancing its pursuit-level driving capabilities.
The 2019 Dodge Durango Enforcer offers the standard 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 engine rated at 293 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque or the available 5.7L HEMI V-8 rated at a best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. All Durango Enforcer models are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive (AWD). Dodge Durango Enforcer V-8 models include the segment’s most technologically advanced AWD system with a segment-exclusive active transfer case to improve real-world fuel economy while also enhancing the vehicle’s traction and handling.
The Durango Enforcer also offers a two-speed transfer case for true low-range off-road capability and incorporates larger, heavy-duty anti-lock brakes that deliver a 96-0 kilometres per hour (60 mph) stopping distance of 40.8 metres (134 feet).
Additional highlights for 2019 include a performance-tuned suspension, load-leveling NIVOMAT shocks, 35 centimetre (13.8-in.) front and 33 cm (13-in.) rear pursuit-rated brake package, front- and rear-stabilizer bars and 18-inch tires on aluminum wheels. Other highlights include ParkView rear backup camera with ParkSense, spot lamp wiring prep package, red/white auxiliary dome lamp, 220-amp alternator, 800 cold cranking amp (CCA) battery (with V-8 engine only), heavy-duty oil cooler and water pump, power locking fuel filler door, 8-way power adjusting driver seat controls, certified speedometre and class-exclusive K-9-friendly Tri-Zone interior control.
2019 Dodge Durango Enforcer models earned a fuel economy rating as good as 9.6 L/100 km highway with the 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 and 10.9 L/100 km with the 5.7-litre HEMI V-8 engine. Durango Enforcer V-8 can tow a best-in-class 7,200 lbs. and offers standard trailer sway control. Durango Pursuit also features the segment’s longest wheelbase at 304 cm (120 in.) for added stability and handling. A spare tire is mounted under the vehicle, maximizing interior cargo space and accessibility, while offering 20.5 cm (8.1 in.) of ground clearance for added off-road capability.
The 2019 Dodge Durango Enforcer will be available for ordering in early July 2018. For more information, law enforcement agencies should contact FCA Canada Fleet
