A muscle SUV for muscle car people with families, the Dodge Durango joins the Challenger and Charger in SRT Hellcat form as the most powerful SUV ever. Powered by the proven supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat V-8 engine delivering 710 horsepower and 645 lb.-ft. of torque, the Durango SRT Hellcat runs 0-60 miles per hour (mph) in 3.5 seconds, has a National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) -certified quarter-mile elapsed time of 11.5, a top speed of 180 mph and runs 1.5 seconds faster than the SRT 392 on a 2.1-mile road course, equal to 9 car lengths after one lap. Beyond the SRT Hellcat, the entire Durango lineup for 2021 features new aggressive exterior styling, a new interior with a Challenger-inspired, driver-centric cockpit, five-times-faster Uconnect 5 on the available, largest-in-class 10.1-inch touchscreen and more performance than ever with six distinct models – SXT, GT, Citadel, R/T, SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat. Dodge will build the Durango SRT Hellcat for the 2021 model year only.
The 2021 Dodge Durango brings upgrades front and center with the all-new 10.1-inch touchscreen, which is part of the new Uconnect 5 system. The 10.1-inch touchscreen comes standard on the Durango R/T, Citadel, SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat and is optional on GT models. New wireless charging keeps personal devices fully charged without charging cords cluttering up the cabin and comes on Durango models equipped with the 10.1-inch touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on all Durango models. The available 10.1-inch touchscreen with Uconnect 5 is nearly 20 percent larger and enables processing speeds up to five times faster than the previous generation. The 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen is standard on Durango SXT and GT models. SRT models have additional unique appearance features, including the SRT “smoke show” start-up animation, SRT serpentine font and some more fun-to-find Easter eggs. Additional connectivity features include Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) software updates to periodically update the Uconnect 5 system for performance and quality improvements. Uconnect 5 also offers a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
The heart of the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat is the renown, supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8, with 710 horsepower at 6,100 rpm and 645 lb.-ft. of torque. SRT powertrain engineers developed and tested the Hellcat engine and tailored it to the Durango, ensuring it reliably handles the rigors of spirited driving in track situations for sustained periods of time without needing to de-rate its power output due to high temperatures. A hallmark of the Hellcat engine is delivering unmatched, attention-getting performance when ordered up by the driver’s right foot, while also providing smooth and refined power flow during daily driving duties or while cruising the open road. An integrated electronic bypass valve regulates boost pressure to a maximum of 11.6 psi (80 kPa). The 2.38-liter supercharger uses a drive ratio of 2.36:1 and has a maximum speed of 14,600 rpm. It is sealed for life with a premium synthetic oil. The twin-screw rotors in the supercharger are set close to minimize air leakage and ensure maximum performance. A proprietary coating on the rotors enables the tight fit, minimizes wear and provides corrosion resistance.
The Dodge Durango’s Hellcat engine is mated to a robust, quick-shifting, high-performance TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. In addition to the head-turning Durango SRT Hellcat, the entire 2021 Dodge Durango lineup offers buyers a wide range of engine options to suit practically any requirement:
- The 392-cubic-inch HEMI V-8 delivers 475 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. It posts 0-60 mph acceleration of 4.4 seconds, NHRA-certified quarter-mile time of 12.9 seconds and best-in-class towing capability of 8,700 pounds
- The 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine is rated at 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque with a tow rating of 7,400 pounds.
- The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine generates up to 295 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. When equipped, the Durango has an available best-in-class V-6 towing capacity of 6,200 pounds. Standard engine stop-start (ESS) technology lowers emissions while also saving fuel
The refreshed exterior on the Durango is distinctly Dodge, maintaining its muscular body and aggressive styling, blending SRT and muscle car DNA throughout the Durango lineup. Durango’s proud, forward-leaning profile captures some design cues from the latest Charger Widebody with the new front fascia, LED low/high headlamps, signature LED daytime running lamps (DRL), sculpted hood, grille, rear spoiler and a variety of wheel options. A newly designed front end creates a wide cross-car read with the upper grille, both of which flow into the new slimmer headlamp shape. The new LED headlamps are slimmer, creating a more modern shape and making Durango look more sinister than ever before. The Durango also features unique Dodge signature LED DRLs. A new integrated chin splitter for both SRT models was developed in the design studio and in the wind tunnel to create aero balance. The SRT Hellcat is even more aggressive with a new chin splitter, which takes advantage of the two-piece design for added downforce. Fog lamps are raised to make the front end feel more alert and aggressive (on non-SRT vehicles); SRT Hellcat deletes the fog lamps to create openings for more airflow to cool the high-performance Hellcat engine.
