Introducing the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat


For 2021 Dodge is going to release an SUV that can finally compete with the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat is claimed to now be the “most powerful SUV ever”. And it remains a three-row family SUV.

At 710 horsepower and 645 lb ft of torque, the Durango SRT Hellcat has more horsepower than the Trackhawk. It has an equally insane 3.5 second 0-60 time, and a top speed of 180 mph. The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat can also tow 8,700 pounds. All of this power is directed to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Hellcat engine exhales through an enhanced exhaust system that should amplify its thunder and mix with the unmistakable whine of its massive supercharger. Dodge claims it can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and complete the quarter mile in an NHRA certified elapsed time of 11.5 seconds. It rides on a specially tuned suspension with adaptive dampers and 20 inch by 10 inch wheels with standard Pirelli Scorpion Zero all-season tires or optional Pirelli P Zero three-season tires.


The SUV’s gauge cluster features exclusive red accents, and its flat bottom steering wheel has a pair of paddle shifters as well as an SRT logo that has red backlighting. The Hellcat model also comes standard with heated and ventilated seats and nappa leather upholstery, that has microsuede inserts on the front cushions. The cabin can be upgraded with Laguna leather that comes in a black and Demonic Red color scheme with embossed Hellcat logos. The center console contains a pair of cupholders, a prominent T handle shifter, a capacious storage bin, and space for a wireless charging pad.

Dodge says the Durango’s interior “feels wider” than the previous model year. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, it’s likely the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat will be in the $80,000 range. FCA announced that the Hellcat will be the only year it comes out as a 2021 model. Dodge will begin taking orders in the fall of 2020, and production is scheduled to start in early 2021, with deliveries following shortly after.
