Autotrader Find: 1999 Dodge Durango Shelby SP360

Performance SUVs are quite common these days, but that wasn’t always the case. Back in the 1990s, performance SUVs were few and far between, limited to a few uncommon models like the GMC Typhoon, the Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited, and this — the Dodge Durango SP360.

For those of you who don’t know the SP360, you’re forgiven: it was made only in 1999, and it was limited to a few hundred total units. Apparently, the “SP” stood for “Super Pursuit,” which gave an indication of the car’s character: it was a faster Dodge Durango. That extra speed came courtesy of a supercharger, which brought power to 360 horses and 412 lb-ft of torque — a massive improvement over the regular output of the Durango’s 5.9-liter V8, which was around 250 horses and 350 lb-ft.

But modifications weren’t limited to more power. The Durango Shelby SP360 also added improved brakes, improved suspension, larger wheels, an improved exhaust and cosmetic modifications like sport seats (yes, sport seats in a 1999 Dodge Durango), carbon fiber interior accents and my favorite: bright blue paint with white stripes, to look like the 1996-1997 Dodge Viper GTS. The whole package was unusually complete, considering how low-volume production was.

And now, this one is available for sale. This SP360, number 129, is currently offered by a private seller in Durango, Colorado, where it’s listed with just 25,700 miles for $27,900 — big money for a ’99 Durango, but well-priced considering its rarity and condition, as this is likely one of the nicest examples of these in existence.
