2015 Dodge Durango Radar Red Nappa Leather Seats Now Available on the R/T Model

While the top-of-the-range Citadel model may not be to everyone’s taste, the Durango R/T is pretty much as good as family-oriented SUVs can get. Built on the same chassis as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the full-size crossover SUV is now available with a much-desired piece of kit.

At long last, the optional black Nappa leather seats are now complemented by rich Radar Red Nappa leather seats. Included in the so-called Premium Nappa Leather Group Package ($1,195), the red-finished seats were first exhibited two years ago, at the 2013 SEMA show, and were only available on the four-door Charger and the Challenger brawler.

Considering that a standard 2015 Dodge Durango R/T is $39,795 and those lavish-looking sofas are $1,195, we’re dealing with a $40,990 full-size SUV here. Needless to say this, but the entry-level SXT is more than $10k cheaper, which is good value for a 290 HP V6 and up to 6,200 lbs (2,812 kg) towing.

Thing is, nearly no one settles for the least amount of goodies. Alas, human nature makes way for our mutual desire of having the Durango R/T over any other grade. A 360 horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI V8, 20-inch Granite Crystal aluminum rims, dual rear exhaust tops and black bezels for the high-intensity discharge headlights are indubitably the right stuff.

In addition to the previously mentioned equipment, the 2015 Dodge Durango R/T also comes with an 8.4-inch Connect touchscreen infotainment unit, a 9-speaker and subwoofer audio system and one of the most useful features of a family-oriented full-size SUV - a power liftgate. I’m not too sure about the “sport-tuned suspension” and the 20 mm lower ride height compared to non-R/T Durango models though...
