Ahead of the Chicago Auto Show, Dodge today announced that its new 2018 Durango SRT will come equipped with support for Apple CarPlay, making it the first Durango model to offer the feature.

Branded as the "fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV," the Durango SRT includes a 475-horsepower engine, a new exterior design, new interior options, and more.

5-year trial of SiriusXM Travel Link and Traffic
5 year... trial? That's not a trial, that's ownership.

No, seriously, it's a damn good stereo. We just took delivery of a 2017 Charger with it. I would've guessed it was a Harmon/Kardon or Bose system had they not put Beats badging on the speaker grilles. It's the best audio system I have *ever* heard in a vehicle. Standard equipment is a 6-speaker system with a 276-watt amplifier - the Beats upgrade is 10 speakers, plus a sub, and the amp is bumped up to 552-watts.

On-topic: Nice to see FCA expanding CarPlay availability. I wish they'd comment on if it is in the new Alfa Romeo Giulia or not...
Doesn't surprise me. Dodge/Chrysler has had some great sound systems.

The Boston Acoustics in the previous Durango was quite good, as were most of the Infinity systems.

And I thought I already heard all about Beats product and they actually call it premium sound system made me chuckle. I'm thinking maybe just a standard car sound system and slap a Beats brand on it and charge customers a premium price. SMH!
