The Dodge Durango stands as a powerful SUV designed for families who are constantly in search for their next great adventure. While the standard SUV does its job well, some drivers (and engineers) thought it could use higher performance. For that very reason, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is coming with more power under the hood than ever before.
Don’t be alarmed! The Dodge Durango SRT will still be the family-friendly, three-row SUV that drivers know and love. It will just come stocked with a larger engine: a 6.4-liter V8 engine that produces 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. And that’s not all the new Durango SRT has to offer.
The new model will also boast a best-in-class towing capacity of 8,600 lbs when properly equipped. It’s also America’s most powerful three-row SUV with a 0-to-60-mph time of just 4.4 seconds and the fastest quarter-mile run in its class. The upcoming three-row SUV will also feature seven drive modes: Auto, Sport, Track, Snow, Tow, Valet, and Eco.
You can expect to see the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT heading to the dealership later this summer.
AutoTrader.com has honored the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango with its Must-Shop SUVs for Towing award, which recognizes SUVs that offer the best combination of towing ability and interior luxury.
The Grand Cherokee features a refined exterior and interior design, complete with bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lamps, Natura leather, exotic open-pore wood trim, and unique color offerings. Under the hood, the massive 240 horsepower 420 lb-ft of torque 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 is capable of towing a best-in-class 7,400 pounds while still delivering best-in-class fuel economy at 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.
The Dodge Durango also leads its class in capability by matching the Grand Cherokee’s 7,400 pound tow rating with its 5.7-liter HEMI V8, which can also automatically turn off cylinders when less power is needed to save fuel. Inside, the Durango features a redesigned center stack with two touch screens, a high-tech instrument cluster, and an available high-def dual-screen Blue-ray entertainment system.
