Shake ’n Make? SEMA Show’s Dodge Durango Shaker Concept
Dodge’s Durango Shaker concept, on display at the 2016 SEMA show, adds more fuel to the speculation of which a Durango SRT is usually within the works within the walls of FCA’s headquarters. Fitted that has a 6.4-liter V-8 engine as well as an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Durango Shaker is usually a B5 Blue bombshell of a performance SUV with the potential to be the Mercedes-AMG GLS63 for the everyman.
As its name implies, the Shaker’s true pièce de résistance is usually its shaker hood scoop of which works that has a custom cold-air-intake system to help feed fresh air to the 392-cubic-inch engine. A cat-back exhaust with center-located tailpipes pushes out what’s left of the combustion process. Although Dodge didn’t supply power or torque figures for the Shaker, we’d venture to guess of which the V-8 at least matches the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT’s 6.4-liter V-8 engine, with its 475 horsepower as well as 470 lb-ft of torque.
Perched on a set of meaty 22-inch wheels as well as tires, the Durango Shaker sits three inches lower than its stock counterpart. A redesigned front end sports a crosshair-less grille as well as a big front splitter, while a pair of hollowed-out headlights via the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat sit where fog lights would likely normally take residence. Tinted headlights as well as taillights, distinct lower-Centeng cladding, a custom rear spoiler, as well as Satin Black detailing throughout the vehicle, including on the hood, roof, as well as rear liftgate, give the Shaker a properly menacing appearance. Meanwhile, a pair of sill-mounted American flags as well as a fuel cap lifted via the Dodge Challenger provide additional kitsch.
Inside, Dodge shakes things up with the addition of a flat-bottomed steering wheel via the Charger SRT, a console-mounted shift lever in place of the stock Durango’s rotary dial, as well as three rows’ worth of leather-trimmed seats swiped via the Viper sports coupe. (That’s one way to get rid of excess Viper seat supplies—Ed.) B5 Blue trim pieces as well as a handful of Mopar accessories round out the Durango Shaker’s remaining Inside enhancements.
