    Still not sure. It's doubtful.

    I really didn't think I could get all this excited about a non-Hellcat SUV, but...that got the heart pumping. I really like where they have been going with the current-gen Durango and this looks very impressive. I wasn't expecting the overall styling to look quite that fluid, and that SRT hood really does look good on just about everything, doesn't it?!

    Thank you very much for taking the time to post the pictures and the write up.

    I for one am very impressed. It's a beautiful vehicle. You can see the thought from end to end, inside and out. I look forward to seeing it in the other different colours - especially the reds. Again, thank you for posting the details and the many many great pictures.

    And yes, this is my next vehicle.

    Wow, excellent job SRT group!
    I was expecting just a 3 row JGC, but the interior is unique and looks awesome and LOVE they gave it more towing!
    That 4 wheel burnout was EPIC as my kids say..LOL!

    The rest of Durango models supposed to get a refresh for MY18...
    Is that still on schedule or has it been pushed to MY19?

    Maybe I missed it but I didn't see a mention on the wheel width specs. Are they 20x10 just like the grand Cherokee SRTs?

    Also one of the bullets above mentions
    • New wide body exterior brings the Durango SRT together as a true performance SUV
    Can someone expand more on the wide body details?

    I'm just gonna throw this out there. The weight distribution is 52/48 compared to 55/45 for GC SRT. I know the curb weight is allegedly 5140 for the GC, but they usually come in around 5300. So approx 200lbs increase, but near 50/50 wwight distro. This could be a much better track vehicle.

    The longer wheelbase isn't a bad thing either.

    FCA saved big time on R&D cost by simply putting the GC SRT392 Powertrain into the Durango.

    Good for SRT to have another vehicle... but I'm still satisfied buying the GC instead.

    Your GC SRT is perfect for you... for me, the three rows are welcome :)

    I may buy a 69 Super Bee this weekend instead of a Hellcat and just wait for a Durango SRT to fall in my lap.

    That 8600lb tow capacity would help haul that Bee to the track and back.

    Car and Driver actually had something nice to say..

    'It's a lot like the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, only with a third-row seat and Dodge good looks.'

    It's been going over really well and rightfully so. The interior is just as beautiful as the exterior. Well done!

    Not too mention, I would of died to have a vehicle that went into the 12's in the quarter mile when I was 16...
