Introduced last year, the HEMI® Orange Appearance Package gave the Dodge Charger and Challenger a bold pays homage to the iconic HEMI engine that has powered Dodge muscle cars for decades. Like the distinct orange look of early-era HEMI engines, the HEMI Orange package colors outside the lines to create a unique, orange-and-black combination of accents that transform both exterior and interior.
Now, Dodge has announced that the package will now be available on the 2022 Dodge Durango R/T. The Dodge Durango R/T HEMI Orange stands out with its unique orange and Gunmetal hood stripes, which complement the new-look Midnight Grey and Orange exterior badging. The rear of the vehicle gets a Satin Black taillamp and a set of Black Noise-painted 20-inch aluminum wheels.
The HEMI Orange is available on all Durango R/T exterior colors, which consist of Destroyer Grey, Diamond Black, Octane Red, and White Knuckle.
“HEMI Orange is a hot option for the Dodge Challenger and Charger, and now we’re expanding its reach by offering the Dodge Durango R/T HEMI Orange,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge CEO. “The Durango has a muscle-car attitude, and the eye-catching HEMI Orange appearance embraces the Dodge performance DNA that is our foundation.”
Under the hood of the 2022 Dodge Durango R/T HEMI Orange, is the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V8. The HEMI produces a best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque and is mated to a fast-shifting, yet smooth ZF-sourced 8-speed automatic transmission.
The Durango R/T HEMI Orange, features SRT front seats and second-row captain’s chairs, are trimmed in Orange stitching, with a monochromatic Dodge “Rhombi” seatback logo.
