Dodge recently unveiled its new Hellcat SRT model for the 2021 Durango SUV, which has been described as “the most powerful SUV of all time.”
Dodge came up with a way to cram a 6.2-liter Turbocharged Hellcat V-8 into the Durango to produce a 710-horsepower, 645-pound-foot three-row SUV.The 0-60 MPH travel time is 3.5 seconds, while the quarter-mile time is 11.5 seconds and the top speed is 180 MPH.
The automaker currently supplies the Hellcat models for its Dodge Challenger and Charger vehicles.Although such models represent only a small number of sales for the brand, they are seen as “halo” or “hype” products that attract buyers to the entire brand.
They helped Dodge maintain relatively steady sales among newer competitors and with consumer preferences.The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT HELLCAT SUV has a new front panel and a new chin allocator.A functional vent on the hood is connected by an air guide and an updated oil cooler duct to keep the drivetrain supplied with cold air.In the rear, a new spoiler was redesigned for better aerodynamic balance.Dodge claims post-underdog pressure increased by more than 400 percent, reaching 140 pounds at 180 MPH.
As with the rest of the Durango Series in 2021, this SRT Hellcat version has been updated.Dodge says there are new LED headlights and daytime running lights — thinner, more sinister — although Hellcat loses the standard LED fog lights, so you can guess that its openings can be used for more cooling.
There is an improved dashboard, controlled by a 10.1-inch touch screen running Uconnect 5.The gear shifter is now all-electronic, although it looks like a traditional version.The steering wheel’s SRT logo has a red backlight.The pressure gauge also comes with Red, while the seats are Nappa leather, suede as standard – with heating and ventilation features – while the Lagnua leather version comes in black and Demonic Red.
The automaker expects to produce fewer than 2,000 of its 2021 Hellcat SRT models early next year, according to Tim Kuniskis, head of Fiat Chrysler’s North American passenger vehicle division.Orders will open this fall and begin delivery in early 2021.
