Today on our 2012 Dodge Durango we’re doing a test fit of the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket. That part number is C18115. Now this is 41 1/2 inches long by 37 inches wide by four inches deep, and it has a 150-pound weight capacity. You do want to double check your vehicle’s owners manual to make sure your vehicle’s roof can withstand that much weight. Now we already have three of our four mounts secured down. We’re going to show you how we secure our fourth mount down.
Just step up here. You’ll see we have our factory roof rack system. What’s great about this application is that we are going to be able to use it with many different kinds of roof racks whether that’s the arrow bars, round, square, elliptical and most of our factory. This one will work here today. We just have taken our U-bolt, placed that under our spacer.
Our spacers are adjustable, so you can move this along the carrier to accommodate different crossbar spreads. We’ve taken that U-bolt underneath. We’ve taken our bracket over the top and placed our two wingnuts on top. We’re just going to tighten these down, and we’ll continue to tighten these down evenly. What’s really great about having this basket on our roof is that we’re going to empty up space inside our vehicle to carry more cargo or more passengers. We’ve got plenty of different tie-down points and a fairing at the front that’s going to help reduce wind noise and drag, and because these accommodate many different style crossbars, we can use this one basket on multiple different vehicles.
Tighten that down. Now that we have that secured, we’ll double check our hatch clearance back here. You’ll see we’re going to have plenty of room. We’re not going to have to worry about our hatch making contact with our carrier or having to remove that antenna in the back. We can close up our hatch.
Again, this is great for many different kinds of gear whether that’s luggage, sporting equipment or camping gear. Now that we have it secured down, we can load up our gear, and we’re ready to hit the road. That’s going to be our completed look at the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part number C18115 on our 2012 Dodge Durango.
As we uncovered when we included one to our lasting fleet, the Dodge Durango GT is a large, flexible SUV that’s also sportier compared to you may anticipate. That said, with a 295-hp V-6 under the hood, it’s no place near as powerful as the Durango SRT 392. However with the new Rallye Appearance Plan, you can a minimum of offer the Durango GT an SRT-inspired appearance.
Reported today, the Rallye Appearance Plan offers a more aggressive front end, a sportier hood, as well as LED foglamps. It could not be needed, but Dodge says the hood inside story as well as vents are in fact functional. If you tow a great deal, it possibly can not hurt.
” Much of our consumers love the performance appearance of the Durango R/T as well as Durango SRT, but are happy with the award-winning Pentastar V-6 engine’s 295 horsepower as well as the excellent gas efficiency it supplies,” said Steve Beahm, FCA’s North American head of passenger cars, in a release. “This new Durango GT Rallye Appearance Plan provides those three-row SUV buyers the very best of both globes.”
The Rallye package is offered to purchase currently for $1,495 as well as be available in seven different colors. Taking Into Consideration the Durango GT begins at $38,990 including destination, that brings the base cost of a Rallye-equipped Durango to $40,485.
