An In-Depth Look At the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT

2018 Dodge Durango SRT

 

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is nimble, quick, powerful and versatile. The V8, 6.4-liter HEMI engine on this new muscle car-inspired vehicle helps make it a cut above other midsized SUVs. Yes, it has 3 rows and seats 6 comfortably and has all the safety technology everyone needs, but this beast has the soul of a performance automobile. It delivers 475 horsepower along with 470 pound-feet of torque and goes from zero-60 in about 4.4 seconds. Running errands will be more fun and exhilarating than ever. It’s leather and suede trim come standard on this monster and so does its growl and the Street & Racing Technology.

This vehicle looks, sounds and feels fast. But its amazing suspension makes the ride smooth. Plus, the vehicle wraps occupants in 5,510 pounds of comfort, safety and convenience features. Add its light, precise steering and car-like spry handling, upgraded upholstery and carbon-fiber and you know you’re in a high performance midsized SUV that handles itself rather professionally and is fun to drive. To see the performance of the SUV for yourself, you can take one for a spin at Chapman Las Vegas Dodge.

With the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT, all-wheel-drive comes standard and you can choose from 7 drive modes—Auto, Eco, Valet, Snow, Sport, Tow and Track. These allow you to increase shift speed, direct up to 70% of the torque to the rear wheels and allow for maximum yaw. Plus, the new front fascia has a brawny disposition and aggressive looks, a wide-body stance, a functional hood scoop, sporty dual exhaust tips, as well as an unmistakable SRT badge. This is a powerful beast wrapped in sheep’s clothing that fits in anywhere, but can bare its claws when the need arises.

The interior of the new Durango has a superb, quiet cabin with a flat-bottomed, steering wheel wrapped in Dinamica suede and features SRT paddle shifters. Its seats are covered in a combination of Nappa leather-and-suede with the front ones heated and ventilated while providing the second row with a heater selection. The 2018 Dodge Durango has its first instrument panel made of true carbon fiber. The A-pillars and headliner are covered in suede, adding to the cabin’s soundproofing. And “SRT” is emblazoned on the steering wheel, seats and floor mats.

The new Durango SRT comes with 20-inch wheels, Pirelli Scorpion Verde all-season tires, vented rotors, Brembo six-piston calipers in the front and four-piston calipers in the rear, an 8-speed automatic transmission, an active damping system for improved cornering, best-in-class towing power and launch control. Choose the technology package and you get the Blu-ray rear entertainment system, low-gloss black wheels, Pirelli P Zero tries and additional driver-assistance systems like blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist.

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT starting price of $64,090 is much less than its competition like the BMW X5 S and Land Rover Range Rover Sport, but the new Durango has more interior room. Competitors are on the drawing board designing SUVs that match this Durango SRTs rear head and legroom, comfortable theatre-style rear seating, power, performance, versatility and value.
