Dodge has prepared a Special Service version of the 2014 Durango created for police and fire departments as well as for general fleet customers.

Compared to the standard Durango, the Special Service variant features a heavy-duty battery and brake package, a 220-amp alternator, load-leveling suspension, along with a heavy-duty water pump and engine oil cooler. Also exclusive to this model is the customizable rear cargo area featuring underfloor storage compartments and more storage space in the side compartments.

Other than that, Dodge has removed the third row of seats to enable more cargo capacity for fleet customers, while the second row of seats continues to boast separate air conditioning and heat controls. The Durango Special Service comes with a special headliner together with a red and white interior dome lamp and spot lamp wiring prep.

All-wheel drive models will be optionally available with a skid plate group, while other extras include Uconnect access via mobile, engine block heater, trailer tow group and a ParkView rear backup camera.

There won't be any changes under the hood so the car will be offered with the same 290 bhp (216 kW) V6 3.6-liter and the beefier 360 bhp (268 kW) HEMI V8 5.7-liter. These two will be matched to a new and more refined eight-speed automatic transmission promising to lower fuel consumption.

Offered with a 5-year / 100,000-mile warranty, the 2014 Dodge Durango Special Service is available on order and will enter production in the last quarter of the year.
