The 2021 Dodge Durango will arrive as a rejuvenated vehicle with a new trim that will only be offered for one year; the all-new SRT Hellcat trim. This is the first time the three-row SUV will offer a Hellcat trim for customers, which might come as a surprise. Before the addition of the trim, the Durango offered the fastest SUV speeds in the segment. Now with the introduction of the SRT Hellcat trim, Dodge adds the incredible power of the 6.2-Liter turbocharged engine and all the comfort and luxury that comes standard with the top Durango trim. However, for one company the strength of 710 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque was not nearly enough despite its offering of best-in-class performance. What company could possibly exceed the capabilities Dodge just added to the Durango? 

Leave It To Hennessey Performance To Make A Hellcat Faster

For many years now, the Hennessey Performance team, a Texas-based tuning company, has created a platform to turn any vehicle into a 1,000 horsepower machine. Hennessey Performance is responsible for birthing the 1,000 horsepower Jeep Gladiator Maximus and the immensely strong 1,200 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. The Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat is now the latest vehicle to gain the Hennessey Performance treatment. Keep in mind, this is the first time any three-row SUV has been created to exceed the three-digit horsepower mark. While Hennessey Performance has built some remarkable vehicles to go way over the production horsepower allotment, they have never made a Durango faster or stronger. 

Pushing the Limits of Dodge Engineering

Well-known for its achievements across the Dodge vehicle lineup, including the Dodge Viper, Charger, and Challenger, this is the first time they work on a new Durango and help it surpass the exclusive +1,000 horsepower mark at 1,012 horsepower. They had experience working on an SUV with the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, but this is a bit different. The newly added HPE1000 supercharger upgrade kit for the Durango SRT has increased the raw strength that allows for 969 ft-lb of torque and it will have the same measurements as the aforementioned Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The speed of the Durango will definitely be increased. The adjusted Trackhawk went from 0-60 mph at warp speed in only 2.6 seconds! We anticipate comparable figures for the Durango SRT Hellcat. (Now that’s wicked speed)

Still Impressed By the Durango SRT Hellcat

While the Hennessey Performance team has created quite a buzz with its Durango, don’t forget the stock version of the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat continues to offer exceptionally quick 0-60 mph time of merely 3.5 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 11.5 seconds. With times like that in a three-row SUV, that’s not only special for a large SUV, but for any production vehicle available today. We’ve already talked about how the Durango is ahead of the competition, but for any readers who are curious about driving a new SUV and want to check out a new Dodge Durango, let us help. We can help make that dream a reality at Miami Lakes Automall today!

The 2021 Dodge Durango Is Far Superior to the 2021 Explorer

The new 2021 Dodge Durango has proven to be far superior than its closest competitor, the Ford Explorer ST. Customers sometimes need a reminder about how much better one brand can be over another. While Ford has enjoyed great success across its landscape of vehicles, we can see how much greater the Durango SRT was made. As an overview, when compared the 2021 Dodge Durango is not only faster, offers more horsepower and torque, but can also brake earlier than the Ford. The infotainment system setups are comparable and yet the Durango can also cost less. In the battle of the three-row SUVs, we can identify a clear winner. 

Speed Is Key

The speed of 0 to 60 MPG is just 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 180 mph, whereas the Ford Explorer ST takes 5.6 seconds to hit 60 mph. If an owner opts for the V6 engine of the Durango, the Dodge product is 3 seconds faster in a quarter-mile than the Explorer ST. As we mentioned earlier, the 60-to-0 mph brake time is 110 feet for the Dodge SUV versus the 114 Ford Explorer ST. The Dodge Durango carries the available Brembo monoblock calipers that help brake the vehicle quickly and efficiently. 

Pricing Comparisons Between the SUV

The Ford Explorer ST when topped out can cost as much as $65,000, while the 2021 Dodge Durango begins at $31,765 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The high-end 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat costs $82,490 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The superior choice between both vehicles, the SRT Hellcat has a nice supercharged 6.2-Liter HEMI® Hellcat V8 engine with its unrivaled 710 horsepower and 645 lb-ft. of torque. This will be for a lone year of production, so buyers will only have this once chance to secure their own. By comparison, the best engine offered with the Ford Explorer ST is the 3.0-Liter EcoBoost V6 engine that only provides just over half what the Durango SRT Hellcat provides. The ST engine hits 400 horsepower with 415 lb-ft of torque; not quite as impressive. 

The Interior Differences

The 2021 Dodge Durango has a new look and interior. The luxurious leather and high-grade materials found in the Durango look sharp and are crafted better than the Ford SUV.  The style of the Durango is taken from the new Charger Widebody.  As far as the infotainment offered, the available 10.1-inch touchscreen is a wonderful centerpiece for owners and passengers alike to enjoy. Both vehicles carry this large 10.1-inch touchscreen, however for the Durango it is available on the GT, GT Plus, R/T, and Citadel trims. The Ford Explorer only offers the touchscreen for the two highest trims. 

As far as interior cabin spacing goes, the 2021 Dodge Durango has a cabin that provides space for as many as 30 suitcases of space according to those who tested the spacing at MotorTrend. The Explorer only held as many as 25 suitcases inside. Now that we’ve painted a clear picture of these two vehicles, we know which vehicle our customers can hope to drive when they debut later in 2020. The 2021 Durango is set to be ready for shoppers starting next month in October. Can’t wait to drive one?

The new and improved 2021 Dodge Durango will be rolling out soon. While many are waiting to see its top-tier trim, the all-new SRT Hellcat with its 707-horsepower engine, we’re just as excited for all the changes that have gone on with the Durango. Dodge has made sure to provide customers with plenty of options including rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive for each trim. There are some new perks that are worth breaking down as we approach the fall of 2020 when the 2021 Durango is expected to debut for shoppers. For those looking to aim for a reasonably priced vehicle that offers all the thrills of Dodge engineering, but isn’t afraid of driving the fastest-three-row-SUV on the planet, side with the Durango this model year.

There is a new rear hatch spoiler added to the Durango that comes standard for owners.

Breaking Down the Changes To the Durango

The higher trims run a bit more expensive but come with more features like the redesigned, driver-focused cabin that adds an 8.4-inch or larger 10.1-inch touchscreen. The remaining trims include the Citadel, which comes in RWD for $49,300 MSRP or AWD for $51,900 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The former highest-trim, the SRT, is now known as the SRT 392 (like how Dodge has it for its muscle car lineup) that begins at $64,490 MSRP (Plus destination fee) and its standard all-wheel-drive. The high-end 2021 Dodge Durango is the all-new SRT Hellcat that supplies standard all-wheel-drive and starts at $82,490 MSRP. 

Upgrades To Citadel and Higher Trims

Dodge has given a big boost to the Citadel trim that gains new leather seating and standard ventilation to the heating function, the larger 10.1-inch touchscreen with Uconnect 5, and TomTom navigation with new safety enhancements and driver assistance capabilities. An owner gains adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane driver assist and forward collision warning with active braking. Dodge also has brought a new option to the fold for customers, a Trailer-Tow Group IV option for $1,195 MSRP. The integrated trailer brake switch also comes with a heavy-duty engine oil cooler, integrated brake controller, plus the Class IV hitch receiver and rear-load leveling shocks. or more information on the all-new 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat, we’ve got a lot to share.

Dodge Has Revealed A Shocking Detail About the All-New Durango SRT Hellcat Trim

Friday, August 14th, 2020

Dodge energized its base when it first announced its intention to add the SRT Hellcat trim to the upcoming 2021 Dodge Durango. Many were shocked that the three-row SUV could even handle the turbocharged 6.2-Liter V8 HEMI powertrain. The 2020 Durango currently offers its highest-tier trim, the SRT. What made the SRT trim special was its providing owners the stout 6.4-Liter HEMI V8 that would hit 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. However, the addition of the SRT Hellcat famed engine means the horsepower will climb over 235 horsepower! The official numbers released have the Durango SRT Hellcat at 710 horsepower with 645 lb-ft of torque. The world’s most powerful SUV is also the fastest, but Dodge revealed more news about this upcoming beast of an SUV. 

Keep This In Mind, There’s A Limited Time

There’s just one catch that Dodge announced regarding the forthcoming 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat; it won’t be produced for very long. Exactly six months of production is all that is expected for the new trim and powertrain added to the already world’s fastest three-row SUV. Naturally, this may not be a surprise as Dodge has a tendency to end its fastest production models within a year or less. We were still mourning the end of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon run; until we learned all about the all-new 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. Dodge is building a line-up that is made for the drag racing scene, but owners can enjoy the remarkable performance on everyday roads and remove the word “boring” from any future driving trips, that’s for sure. 

Rush To Get the Durango SRT Hellcat Fast

Dodge has kept its fans on their toes and kept the speed and excitement of driving a Dodge vehicle intact. This is just a reminder for all those customers that there will be a limited amount of time to snatch up the upcoming 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat. This vehicle will be expected to start around $77,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee). For lovers of speed, this is a price that all SRT owners can relate to. The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is similar in price at $79,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The debut of the 2021 Dodge Durango is expected in the fall of 2020 and will offer wicked fast speeds of 0 to 60 mph in under four seconds!

Dodge will update the Durango Pursuit to the 2021 model year. The refresh of the 2021 Dodge Durango will be a welcomed sight for customers, but the update is especially good news for the Pursuit team. The 2021 Dodge Durango includes the first-ever SRT Hellcat trim that offers its remarkable 710 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque. The Pursuit team also includes the Dodge Charger Pursuit and is made solely for law enforcement officers. While regular customers can’t drive these particular vehicles, we go over some of the differences that will be available for the 2021 Dodge Durango and Charger models for customers. 

More on the 2021 Dodge Durango Pursuit

The Durango Pursuit will be able to hold its own when called upon because it has got the strength and quickness needed to restrain crime. Mopar Insider has revealed that the 2021 Dodge Pursuit vehicles are slated for the R/T Tow N Go Package. This package includes the 5.7-Liter HEMI V8 engine and adds best-in-class maximum towing capacity at 8,700 pounds. The impressive top-end speed of 145 miles should be more than enough. Criminals would be foolish to even try to escape the police using the Pursuit models, including the Dodge Durango Pursuit that can go from 0-60 in as little as 4.4 seconds with a quick quarter-mile time of only 12.9 seconds. 

All-Wheel-Drive Option For 2021 Dodge Charger Pursuit

The upcoming 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat will carry an impressive 717-horsepower rating and receives a new top-speed of 203 mph. Customers can opt to own this vehicle later in 2020 while the 2021 Dodge Charger is going to see some changes of its own for the Pursuit package. The Pursuit package offers the base engine, the 3.6-Liter Pentastar engine, but that’s not all. The powertrain option for the more aggressive 5.7-Liter engine can be added. The 3.6-Liter engine comes with rear-wheel-drive, the option for all-wheel-drive is included. The Charger Pursuit contains driver and passenger doors with ballistic protection. 

New Dodge Vehicles; Built For the Bold

Today, the Dodge Charger Pursuit is the bestselling law enforcement sedan on the road. With these reinvigorated Pursuit models advancing, we’re anticipating Dodge to bolster its presence for law enforcement everywhere. All perps and criminals don’t stand a chance of getting away from the latest Dodge Pursuit vehicles. Any police force that is serious about safeguarding their officers would be wise to supplement these vehicles into their fleet. For the rest of us, while civilian customers can not order these special Pursuit vehicles, the new 2021 Dodge Durango and Charger models will come out later this year during the fall. The Dodge Pursuit vehicles will be ready to order by September 2020. Check with us to learn more about all Dodge vehicles, including the newest Dodge lineup ready at Miami Lakes Automall!
