The next time a person thinks of a Dodge Durango and a Chrysler Pacifica, they won’t be thinking of a typical SUV or minivan.
Mopar, the parts and accessories arm of Fiat-Chrysler, will unveil later this morning its concept versions of both vehicles at the 2016 SEMA event.
The B5 blue Dodge Durango Shaker concept features three rows of seating with a custom fabricated functional shaker hood, the first for a Durango. The vehicle also features a 6.4-liter HEMI engine that has an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Mopar replaced the standard exhaust with a customized chrome Mopar cat-black duel exhausts. The Durango Shaker also is three inches closer to the ground, having a custom lowering kit installed.
Also featured on the vehicle are stain black 22 inch high by 10 ½ inch wide wheels on customer fenders. Also adding to the sportier look and feel is an open grille design, which replaces the crosshair grille, providing better air intake.
Other features include satin black side sills, B5 blue mirror caps and a B5 blue custom rear spoiler.
Inside are three rows of Viper seats, trimmed in leather with B5 blue stitching as accents. The steering wheel is borrowed from its sportier car cousin, the Charger SRT.
Mopar tweaked Chrysler’s minivan to produce the Chrysler Pacifica Cadence, which offers plenty of interior storage that minivan owners are used to. Besides the usual storage areas, the Pacifica has a 9-foot paddleboard added to the top and a pet kennel inside. It also comes with wireless charging for mobile devices. In keeping true to its family theme, the vehicle comes with a first aid kit.
The vehicle is outfitted with Mopar 20-inch wheels in tricolor satin and gloss black with blue accepts. It also comes with a Mopar running board that adds lift to the Pacifica.
The 2016 SEMA show runs today until November 4. The Mopar press event starts today at 4:26 pm Pacific time. TFLcar will be covering the show from wall to wall, so check back for more updates from the show.
