2018 Dodge Durango SRT - The Most Powerful Three-Row SUV
|   Tuesday, February 21, 2017
It's been very little while since the Dodge company has unveiled its 2018 Durango SRT, but the vehicle already got the world's attention: it is the most powerful three-row SUV so far!

The spacious vehicle benefits from an impressive 475 horsepower 392 cubic-inch Hemi V8 engine. Tests proved that it can reach 60 mph in only 4.4 seconds with a quarter mile time of 12.9 seconds – which is pretty fast for a three-row SUV. But, of course, there's much more to it.


Among the other impressive features, the naturally aspirated 6,4L V8 can also generate up to 470 lb-ft of torque. Naturally, the fact that it's mated to the automatic, eight-speed transmission, calibrated precisely for the Durango SRT, can only increase its performance level. Among other significant upgrades, there are stiffer rear and front springs and an interesting Brembo high-performance calipers which benefit from vented rotors at every corner.

Moving on to other specifications that make the new Dodge Durango SRT more awesome, there is a seven-mode drive system that allows the driver to adjust basically every detail you can think of that may improve the quality and comfort of the driving experience. The pre-made Sport Mode, for instance, delivers 65% of the engine from the torque to the rear wheels. Also, this mode can reduce the shit times by nearly 50% compared to the Auto Mode. However, the Track Mode is the one that offers the highest performance level, as it allows driving with 160-millisecond shifts and 70% of the engine torque tot the rear wheels.

Not to worry, the interior doesn't let us down either! The surface is covered in Laguna leather, as well as carbon fiber trim. The instrument panel is hand-wrapped in a live silver accent stitch, while the SRT flat-bottom steering wheel has SRT paddle shifters. The front, as well as the second-row captain's chairs are heatet and ventilated for a maximum amount of comfort.

The first official presentation of the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT will take place at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. The model is expected to arrive in dealerships during the fourth quarter of this year.
