2018 Dodge Durango SRT

 

If you want a little more from your SUV, then check out the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT. This is more than a big-engine, aggressively styled vehicle made for the track. This SUV is the complete package with many useful attributes people need every day. Sure the SUV burned up the track at the Virginia International Speedway during testing, but this Dodge Durango is more than just a hot-rod SUV. Its six-passenger interior, high-bolstered front row seats and leather and microsuade upholstery makes it ideal for taking families anywhere they need to go in style and comfort.

With its 6.4-liter Hemi engine, taking the entire brood and all their gear anywhere quickly is a breeze. While it does the quarter mile in an NHRA-certified 12.9 seconds and goes from zero to 60 in 4.7 seconds, what may be more important to families is that it retained its excellent, easy to get into, third row that is roomy enough for adults or large, athletic teens. Plus, its eight driving modes, Auto, Eco, Sport, Track, Tow, Snow, Valet and Custom, means you have the traction you need to take this SUV, its passengers and its load, anywhere you want to go.

The exterior of the 2018 Dodge Durango looks aggressive and impressive. It has a wide-mouth grille, scooped hood with rear-facing, heat shedding nostrils and dual exhaust outlets. Add its stiffer front and back suspension springs, rear anti-roll bar, as well as adaptive Bilstein shock absorbers and a 119.8-inch wheelbase and you have an SUV that looks and feels ready to take on any challenge. This is especially true with the ability to choose your transmission, suspension, stability control, all-wheel-drive and steering preferences. You have many options when it comes to a 2018 Dodge Durango SRT, and you can see them all at Chapman Las Vegas Dodge.

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT’s interior features an infotainment system with an 8.4-inch Uconnect screen. There you can find Performance Pages with gauges that let you display information on horsepower being used and more in an analog or scrolling ribbon format. HVAC controls and the vehicle’s launch control system can be managed on the infotainment screen. The launch-control button lets you choose a launch rpm of between 1500 and 3500. This can make the V-8 engine prime itself to unleash its 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.

The performance of this SUV is impressive. It has crisp, precise handling, excellent steering clarity and the anti-roll bar keeps it smooth and stable even at high speeds. Its Brembo braking hardware can bring it from 70 miles per hour to a full stop in 167 feet. That’s one foot more than the Mercedes-AMG GLS63. In the front there’s six-piston calipers and a 15-inch diameter rotor. The rear has four-piston calipers and a 13.8 inch diameter rotor.

Add the SRT Interior Appearance package and you get painted accents, carbon-fiber trim, microsuede headliner, plus a stitched leather-look dashboard cover. It’s the first Durango to offer this feature. The Towing Package adds a spare tire and an 8700-pound tow rating. The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT delivers a lot for a starting price of $64,090.
