Is a Durango SRT in your future?

by David Zatz on

The oft-questioned future of the Dodge Durango appears to have been resolved, with a trusted source claiming that an SRT version of the popular SUV is being prepared.

The three-row, rear-drive SUV will probably stay with the potent 392 Hemi V8, rather than going straight to the 707-hp Hellcat. The Durango and Grand Cherokee have very similar powertrains and basic bodies, but the Hellcat unlikely because the Dodge and Jeep have different cooling and packaging challenges.

Whether the SRT will be rear or all wheel drive is also unknown, so far. An SRT Durango has been rumored for years, mainly because it seems like an obvious choice: the Grand Cherokee has already been modified and Dodge is set up as the performance/muscle brand.
