The all-new 2021 Durango Hellcat is here, and Dodge did not hold back. Under the hood is a 6.2L supercharged Hemi pumping out 710 horsepower mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Getting the power to the ground is an AWD system with launch control. On the exterior you will find a unique front fascia, hood, wheels, rear bumper and roof spoiler. On the inside there is refreshed dash with 10 inch infotainment system, UCONNECT 5, and Demonic interior.
Is the new 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat the perfect muscle car SUV? Well, the embargo has been lifted on the media which means the chosen ones (select Youtubers/Vloggers) have released their video reviews and demos. Below are those videos.
Dodge Durango – the ultimate “no-compromise” SUV and Charger of the three-row SUV segment – raises the bar for 2021 with new aggressive exterior styling, a new interior with a Challenger-inspired driver-centric cockpit, five-times-faster Uconnect 5 on the largest-in-class 10.1-inch touchscreen, which houses the SRT Performance Pages, and more performance than ever with six distinct models – SXT, GT, Citadel, R/T, SRT 392 and the new 710-horsepower Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat – the most powerful SUV ever.
Dodge, America’s performance brand, is infusing its supercharged SRT Hellcat DNA into the Durango lineup for 2021. Powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat V-8 engine paired with the quick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission, the Durango now joins the Challenger and Charger in Hellcat form, delivering 710 horsepower and 645 lb.-ft. of torque, giving it the power to go from 0-60 miles per hour (mph) in 3.5 seconds and cover the quarter-mile in 11.5 seconds. The Durango SRT Hellcat runs 1.5 seconds faster than the Durango SRT 392 on a 2.1-mile road course, equal to 9 car lengths after one lap. Dodge will build the Durango SRT Hellcat for the 2021 model year only.
The new Tow N Go Package on the 2021 Durango R/T AWD leverages its 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine performance, SRT’s menacing looks, unmatched, best-in-class towing of 8,700 pounds, an improved top speed of 145 mph, Track, Sport, Snow and Tow drive modes and a retuned SRT-performance exhaust with an iconic Dodge exhaust note rumble.
The Challenger and Charger muscle car exteriors are reflected in the Durango’s new, aggressive exterior, which features a new front fascia, LED low/high projector headlamps, LED daytime running lamp (DRL) signatures, grille, rear spoiler and wheels.
The Durango interior is significantly upgraded for the 2021 model year with a performance-inspired, new driver-oriented cockpit, including a new instrument panel, five-times-faster Uconnect 5 with the largest-in-class 10.1-inch touchscreen, center console and front door uppers. With all of the updates, the interior feels much wider, high-tech and more refined than the outgoing model.
With the ability to seat up to seven in its three rows of seats, the Durango maintains its claim of being a family-friendly SUV, one equipped with Dodge muscle car attitude and extremely capable with best-in-class towing leadership at every trim level.
