The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is a 475-horsepower, high-performance, 3-row family vehicle with the heart of a muscle car. While it may appear big and heavy at first glance, its adaptive suspension, 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 engine and rear-biased all-wheel-drive system makes it feel and handle smoothly and deliver functional ass-kickery. This 17-foot long three-row crossover is rolling American thunder that goes from 0 to 60 in a skimpy 4.4 seconds. It also covers the quarter mile in an NHRA-certified 12.9-seconds.

The new Durango SRT has the same powerplant the Charger and Challenger has on several trims. It also sounds the same and its 475 horsepower engine delivers 470 pound-feet of torque. That’s perfect for the towing and hauling SUV owners do. At low speed, there’s little noise or vibration. Stomp on the gas and its growl lets people know there’s a beast under your hood. The Durango SRT’s towing capacity of 8,700 pounds is attention-grabbing. Plus, its cargo space of 47.7 cubic feet is impressive and can hold lots of stuff. If you head down to Chapman Dodge Las Vegas, you can see how much room a Durango SRT offers.

The interior of the 2018 Durango SRT is also impressive. Even if you don’t opt for the red leather interior and soft-touch surfaces in the higher trims, you can still get the captain’s chairs, front row seats with flip-up screens in the back and UConnect, one of the automotive industry’s best OEM infotainment systems. Plus, the Durango SRT is an SUV that handles great and is a pleasure to drive. Its well-insulated cabin is quiet and comfortable. Even though it weighs almost three tons, it corners surprisingly well and with six-piston caliper on the front end from its beefy Brembo brakes, its stopping power boosts the driver’s confidence.

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is a three-row crossover with launch control, several driving modes, magnetic ride shocks, low-profile tires and an optional Trailer Tow package. It’s a performance SUV that gets high marks for comfort, luxury and hauling things and people. When it comes to curb appeal, this vehicle has that ‘Wow!’ factor. It has unibody construction, a tight chassis, a third row of seats and incredible towing capacity. It’s a 5,510 pound anti-minivan with loads of power, a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission and a top speed of 155 mph.

Fold down the second and third row seat and the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT has 84.5 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s enough room to hold just about anything you need to carry. Fold the seats back up and your entire family can fit comfortably in the vehicle and enjoy a relaxing ride no matter the distance you have to travel. The 2018 Dodge Durango is the type of vehicle both parents and children of any age would feel proud to show up in because of the way it looks and the powerful sound of the engine. If you’re looking for the ideal family vehicle, one large and powerful enough for all the people and things you need to carry, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is the perfect choice.

 

The Dodge Challenger was first released in 2008 as the “new” muscle car for Dodge. The sleek car, powered with a Hemi engine, was quickly a best seller, and demand continued to rise for the car each and every month. Now, 10 years after its release and with only one “upgrade” to its credit, the Dodge Challenger remains one of the hottest selling muscle cars on the market today.

Muscle cars are changed every few years to keep the interest of buyers, Mustang, Camaro and even Corvettes release new body styles and major changes every few years to spark interest for buyers and entice current owners to upgrade to the newer model. On averag,e these cars see major changes take place every three or four years.

The Challenger, however, has only had one upgrade in 2015, seven years after its initial release. The upgrade fine-tuned all the amenities that Challenger already offered and really didn’t change the body style. Yet it was a success. Challenger sales increased that year as well and have continued to outpace other muscle cars on the market. No matter what type of Dodge Challenger you want, you can take one for a test drive at Las Vegas Dodge.

So why is the Dodge Challenger outperforming other muscle cars in sales? There are three really good reasons.

Raw Hemi Power

The Dodge Challenger offers four different V8 engines. Two of these engines offer more horsepower than any other muscle car on the market. The Challenger gives buyers a choice of the Hemi Demon 840 horsepower engine, the Hellcat 707 horsepower engine, as well as the Hemi 485 and 375 horsepower engines. For those who do not want the raw power of a V8, Challenger also offers a V6 model.

In comparison, the Mustang offers two V8 engines at 526 and 450 horsepower. Chevy also only offers two V8 engines that are 455 and 650 horsepower.

The Hemi engine has the ability to draw people that are seeking very powerful engines, those who are not loyal to any specific brand and those who are loyal only to Hemi. The engine is perhaps the top reason for the success of Challenger.

Trim Options

It is not unusual for a car to offer 10 or 11 variations to encourage more people to become interested in their product. The Mustang, for example currently offers 6 coupe and 4 convertible variations and Camaro offers 6 coupe and 5 convertible variations. The Dodge Challenger, however, offers 16 variations of its coupe style. The Challenger does not offer a convertible version.

While this may seem like a ridiculous amount of variations, Dodge has mastered being able to attract a larger variety of buyers by literally making something available for everyone. Buyers can go in and really buy the car of their dreams without having to settle for more or less than what they really wanted. This availability of choice is a real attraction to many buyers.

The 2015 Upgrade Was A Success

When Dodge refreshed the Challenger in 2015, the upgrades they made were fabulous. Not only did they add two more types of engines to the choice package, but they also improved the appearance of the car by adding LED taillights, projection headlights, while retaining the lines that gave the body its distinct appearance.

The upgrade also improved the comfort level within the car while still having a very muscle car appearance. Buyers absolutely loved the upgrades and sales have continued to improve since the upgrades and have not stopped since.
