The Durango SRT finally looks like a “go”

by David Zatz on

According to sources present at the Nevada dealer presentation, we should see a Dodge Durango SRT within the next two calendar years. Unlike the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which could still be dropped or postponed based on numerous factors, the Durango SRT would use the current 6.4 liter SRT engine, which boasts cylinder deactivation and up to 485 horsepower.

The Durango SRT would be rear wheel drive only, and would likely have a slightly lowered suspension for better handling. Whether it will maintain the current platform, refreshed again while a new one is developed, remains unknown. Some have speculated that the Durango would become more of a sport-wagon, based on the upcoming large car setup.
