November 1, 2021,
Mopar is at it again.
Building upon more than 10 years of low-volume, factory-backed vehicle customization, Mopar today announced a new limited-production vehicle featuring a special edition package of unique quality-tested, factory-backed performance parts and accessories from the Mopar Custom Shop – the Mopar ’22 Dodge Durango. The new performance SUV, on display Nov. 2-5 in the Mopar booth at the SEMA Show, will arrive in 2022 in conjunction with the 85th anniversary of Mopar.
The Dodge Durango continues to demonstrate its proven performance with a combination of uncompromised utility, advanced technology, class-leading towing, confident driving dynamics and iconic styling. With the ability to seat up to seven in its three rows of seats, the Durango maintains its claim of being a family-friendly SUV equipped with Dodge muscle car attitude.
“Our new, limited-edition Mopar ‘22 Durango features exclusive Mopar performance parts and accessories.’” said Mark Bosanac, North America Vice President, Mopar Service, Parts & Customer Care. “Unlike any other aftermarket offerings, our performance parts and accessories are jointly developed and quality tested with the product engineering team and they are backed by the factory.”
Available exclusively on the 2022 Dodge Durango R/T with the Plus Group and Tow N Go Package, the Mopar ‘22 Durango includes exterior and interior features only available on this limited-production, Mopar-branded performance SUV.
Available in DB Black or White Knuckle, the exterior of the Mopar ‘22 Durango stands out with exclusive features, including:
- Offset asymmetrical Mopar Blue stripe that runs on the driver’s side from the front fascia to the rear fascia
- Mopar Blue “Mopar” front grille badge
- Mopar Blue “Brembo” brake calipers
Inside the driver-oriented cockpit of the Mopar ‘22 Durango, exclusive appointments include:
- Mopar ‘22 instrument-panel badge with serialized build number
- Leather and suede front seats wear a two-tone Mopar logo embroidered into the seat backs
- Mopar Blue accent stitching in seats, instrument panel, centre console and doors
- Mopar pedal kit
- Mopar all-weather floor mats
The Mopar ‘22 Durango is powered by the legendary 5.7-litre HEMI® V-8 engine rated at 360 horsepower and mated to the standard TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Enhancing airflow to the HEMI V-8 engine is a Mopar cold-air intake that, combined with a Mopar cat-back exhaust system, delivers improved performance.
Standard 20- by 10-inch “Lights Out” wheels ride on Pirelli tires and provide a menacing look, while a Mopar 1-inch lowering kit delivers improved handling, tighter cornering and quicker response.
The Tow N Go Package provides best-in-class towing of 3,946 kilograms (8,700 pounds); an increased top speed of 233 km/h (145 mph); Track, Sport, Snow and Tow drive modes; and a retuned SRT-performance exhaust with an unmistakable iconic Dodge exhaust rumble. The Mopar ‘22 is also equipped with Performance Pages, retuned SRT active noise cancellation, electronic limited-slip differential and SRT active damping suspension.
Each buyer will receive a Mopar ’22 owner kit that features a custom-made, personalized metal certificate of authenticity with serialized vehicle-build number and a special rendering of the vehicle by the Mopar Design team.
Vehicles are slated to arrive in select Dodge dealerships in the U.S. and Canada in summer 2022. Production is limited to 250 units – 200 vehicles for the U.S market and 50 vehicles for Canada.

A simple contraction of the words MOtor and PARts, Mopar offers exceptional service, parts and customer-care. Born in 1937 as the name of a line of antifreeze products, Mopar has evolved over nearly 85 years to represent both complete vehicle care and authentic performance for owners and enthusiasts worldwide.
Mopar made its mark in the 1960s during the muscle-car era with performance parts to enhance speed and handling for both on-road and racing use. Later, Mopar expanded to include technical service and customer support, and today integrates service, parts and customer-care operations in order to enhance customer and dealer support worldwide.

For more than 100 years, the Dodge brand has carried on the spirit of brothers John and Horace Dodge. Their influence continues today as Dodge shifts into high gear with muscle cars and SUVs that deliver unrivaled performance in each of the segments where they compete.
2021 marks the year that Dodge is distilled into a pure performance brand, offering Hellcat-powered, 700-plus-horsepower SRT versions of every model across the lineup. For the 2021 model year, Dodge delivers the drag-strip dominating 807-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock, the new 797-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Redeye, the most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world, and the new 710-horsepower Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat, the most powerful SUV ever. Combined, these three muscle cars make Dodge the industry’s most powerful brand, offering more horsepower than any other North American brand across its entire lineup.
In 2020, Dodge was named the "#1 Brand in Initial Quality," making it the first domestic brand ever to rank No. 1 in the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study (IQS). The Dodge brand also ranked No. 1 in the J.D. Power APEAL Study (mass market). These results are historic because it marks the first time a domestic brand has earned top spots in both J.D. Power studies in the same year.
Dodge is part of the portfolio of brands offered by leading global automaker and mobility provider Stellantis. For more information regarding Stellantis (NYSE: STLA), please visit www.stellantis.com.
