Over the summer, the Dodge brand unveiled a limited edition buzz model for the 2022 Dodge Durango R/T dubbed the HEMI® Orange Appearance Package. The package was an extension of a similar appearance edition released on the Dodge Challenger and Charger SXT and Scat Pack Widebody models.
Needless to say, while ordering opened up in the summer, it wasn’t until recently we started to see the limited edition models arrive in dealer showrooms. But for those who waited, the HEMI Orange models appeared to be an amazing package.
So it wasn’t surprising to us when we heard that Dodge was bringing the package back for 2023. Just like it for the Challenger and Charger.
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, trimmed in Orange stitching, with a monochromatic Dodge “Rhombi” seatback logo. Orange stitching runs throughout the interior, accenting the instrument panel, door uppers, armrest, center console lid, shifter boot, and leather flat-bottom steering wheel.
