FCA unchains the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat
It doesn't get any brawnier than this: Dodge Durango is all set to unleash pure adrenaline in the newest 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat, so if you're into muscle, muscle, and even more muscle, then you won't be disappointed.
Now juiced up with a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V-8 engine, the Durango SRT delivers 710-hp and a whopping 874 N-m of torque. To amp up the level, it runs 0-97 kilometers per hour (mph) in 3.5 seconds, and has a National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) –certified quarter-mile elapsed time of 11.5.
Moreover, it also has a top speed of 290 kph and runs 1.5 seconds faster than the SRT 392 on a 3.4-mile (5.5-km) road course. That's equal to 9 car lengths after one lap.
The newest Durango lineup now features an updated aggressive exterior, with a forward-leaning profile that showcases its Charger Widebody design features, such as the new front fascia, LED low/high headlamps, signature LED daytime running lamps (DRL), grille, rear spoiler and wheel options.
The newest Hellcat also offers performance-inspired interior features, with a new driver-oriented cockpit, instrument panel, wrapped- and accent-stitched mid-bolster and center console, upgraded door panels, and the all-new five-times-faster Uconnect 5, which possesses the largest-in-class available 10.1-inch touchscreen.
"The Brotherhood of Muscle includes families of all sizes and the Durango delivers Dodge performance as the Charger of the three-row SUV segment,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America.
"And new for 2021, we have raised the bar even higher. The 710-horsepower Hellcat is the most powerful SUV ever. It’s the last piece of the puzzle and, alongside the Charger and Challenger, completes the Dodge brand’s performance lineup.”
If you want a more adrenaline-filled Durango, you can opt for the R/T variant, which comes with the new Tow N Go Package and a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 performance engine.
Packed with black Brembo six-piston brakes,the R/T variant delivers a best-in-class towing of 8,700 lbs. (3,946 kgs), with a boosted top speed of 233 kph, four drive modes (Track, Sport, Snow and Tow), plus a new SRT-tuned performance exhaust with an iconic Dodge exhaust rumble.
