JAN 2021 Blues Vol 37 No. 1


2021 DODGE 2021 Dodge Durango Pursuit The Ford Police Interceptor Utility (aka the Explorer) may be the most commonly law enforcement vehicle, but some departments opt for the Dodge Durango Pursuit instead. The Durango received minor updates for 2021, mostly coming down to quality-of-life changes from the 2020 models. To start, the 2021 Dodge Durango Pursuit now gets the eightspeed automatic transmission across both the V6 and V8 options. The former mates up to a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with allwheel drive. Police departments opting for Hemi power will get rear-wheel drive instead. FCA says the V6 has more horsepower and torque but did not dive into technical figures. For reference, the 2020 Pentastar-equipped model manages 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, same as the standard base Durango. Although, at least this time the police version gets more than an antiquated fivespeed transmission. The 2021 Dodge Durango Pursuit carries on more or less unchanged, save again some quality-of-life changes. FCA moved the shifter up onto the instrument panel to free up space The updated Durango Pursuit also includes a “Vehicle Systems Interface Module” to make upfitting equipment easier. A heavy-duty ‘BR9’ brake package comes with this model, as does standard vinyl flooring and a three-zone climate control system to accommodate the needs of K-9 units. The Durango Pursuit’s top speed is limited to 130 mph. 2021 DODGE DURANGO PUR- SUIT EQUIPMENT Powertrains: • Standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 24V VVT Engine (AWD) • Optional 5.7L V8 HEMI® MDS VVT Engine (AWD) • Eight-Speed TorqueFlite® • Automatic Transmission • Instrument Panel-Mounted Shifter • Heavy-Duty BR9 Brakes • Police-Specific Seats • Vehicle System Integration Module • Stealth Mode • Vinyl Floor Covering 2021 Dodge Durango Pursuit 62 The BLUES POLICE MAGAZINE The BLUES POLICE MAGAZINE 63
