The new Dodge Durango could be a big bite for those one who can’t actually handle growling and powerful machine. The new SRT is an oversized family SUV (and this year it’s getting meaner), not just for them, but for everyone who loves to play with the beast. Let us introduce this magnificent three-row SUV. Here is what we found on this year Chicago motor show.
Exterior and Interior
The three-row seating is capable to handle six people. The exterior includes a new functional center air inlet duck, what is placed on the new hood. New headlamps and rear lights, as the upgraded fog lamps is noticeable as well. The new fascia is coming with 4.0-inch tailpipes. Overall it looks very nice and massive, and has an aggressive appearance. So wherever you go you won’t be noticeable. The towing capacity is about 8,600 pounds, what is really awesome.
The cabin is updated with the latest technology, and gives a fine comfort and luxury. It is equipped with an 8.4-inch touchscreen to run the SRT information’s, Apple CarPlay, HD radio, Navigation etc. The upholstery is from leather and suede. Also there is available with red Laguna leather and carbon fiber trim as well. We suppose with this luxury and high style the driving is an extraordinary experience, and makes the passengers relax and feel secure.
Engine and Performance
The new 2018 Dodge Durango SRT, has 5,510 pounds, is equipped with a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine, what can deliver 475 horsepower and 470 foot-pound of torque, and also capable to reach 60 mph in 4,4 seconds. The engine is mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission. We found information on motor authority that it could run the quarter mile in 12.9 seconds. There are available seven drive modes: sport mode, comfort mode, eco and valet modes for limited power, also snow and towing modes.
2018 Dodge Durango SRT Relase Date and Price
Unfortunatelly, there are no official informations yet about the price, to be precise no one confirmed any price yet, there are many speculation, and prediction, and some say that starting price will be around $48,000 , and will go up to $70,000 something like last year model.
The new Durango SRT will be available on fall this year, yes, this is not confirmed yet, we remind you, but we think that is a save to say that Dodge would not hurry to much with showing it on Chicago Auto Show if they don’t have it ready for sale.
