2016 Dodge Durango Brass Monkey and Anodized Platinum trim
It’s offered Moet, it don’t mind Chivas, wherever it goes it brings Monkey with it
The Dodge Durango — yes, it’s still around and coming off its best sales year since 2006 — will get two new appearance packages for 2016: Brass Monkey and Anodized Platinum. Dealers start taking orders today.
The Brass Monkey package is offered on the Durango Limited and comes with 20-inch burnished bronze wheels, a gloss-black grille and exterior badge and a monochromatic exterior. The package adds $995.
If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, the Anodized Platinum model might. This package only comes on the top Citadel trim and includes 20-inch satin carbon wheels, platinum grille, mirror caps, fog lamp bezel, exterior badge, door handles and lower sills. That option package costs $1,095.
