Chrysler Group Introduces its First Hybrid-Electric Vehicle (HEV): Dodge Durango HEV

April 11, 2006

DALLAS – On Apr. 5, Dodge introduced the new, redesigned 2007 Durango at the Dallas Auto Show. The new Dodge Durango also features the face of Chrysler Group’s first HEV. In 2008, the Dodge Durango HEV will feature a two-mode hybrid system, co-developed by DaimlerChrysler, General Motors, and The BMW Group. Mated to the 5.7L HEMI V-8 engine, the HEV system combines power and towing capability with significant fuel-efficiency. The Dodge Durango HEV two-mode hybrid will deliver seamless power on demand in an efficient package with motors less than half the size of traditional hybrids. With an electrically variable transmission, including two electric motors and two full hybrid modes of operation, the drive system improves fuel economy by operating at low speeds around town and at higher speeds on highways.
