The Dodge SRT lineup will soon add another member to its distinguished roster. This time around, it’s an SUV packing plenty of attitude and charisma with room for all your rowdy friends.
The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT will hit the streets packing a 475 horsepower 392 cubic-inch V8 coupled to a TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission. It’s been NHRA-certified with a 0 to 60 time of 4.4 seconds and can sprint the quarter mile in 12.9 seconds.
“The new 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars Brands, Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – FCA North America. “This is what you get, when you take everything great about the Durango and combine it with the performance of the Charger SRT: a 12-second quarter mile, toy-hauling, three-row muscle car.”
The Durango SRT comes with plenty of standard performance equipment. A seven-mode drive system gives the driver the ability to command the road under many different types of road conditions. The Durango SRT’s hood features a functional cold-air duct and heat extractors to keep the engine cool under pressure. Pirelli 295/45ZR20 Scorpion Verde tires are also standard. Helping bring the Durango to a standstill are brakes with vented rotors attached to Brembo six-piston calipers up front and four-piston calipers in back.
Here’s more great news! Anyone who purchases a new Durango SRT gets a day of driver training at the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving.
Look for the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT to hit dealer showrooms during the fourth quarter of this year.
