Is this the Dodge Durango SRT?

by Patrick Rall on

There are no official images of the ever-popular-but-still-rumored Dodge Durango SRT; however, when Allpar’s suzq044 created this rendering, an inside source said it was “very accurate.”

Here is a quick rundown compared to the already sporty Durango R/T:

  • The front fascia is similar to the 2017 SRT Jeep, including a large lower-central grille opening flanked by two smaller vents and a long opening along the bottom.
  • The upper grille opening has swapped out the crosshairs for the same style mesh as the lower grille opening; the SRT badge has been added to about the same place as it is in the SRT Charger and Challenger.
  • The hood has a Hellcat-inspired design, with a front scoop like the Hellcat hoods and two vents from the Jeep SRT.
  • This SRT Durango rendering has a far more aggressive stance than any current Durango, requiring a unique suspension tune.
  • The wheels are from the Challenger Scat Pack.

The artist changed the front fascia, the upper grille, the hood, the wheels and lowered it a bit, creating what I have been told is an accurate depiction of the upcoming SRT Durango. The fact that so few items have been changed to create such an aggressive looking, high-performance SUV is a testament to just how sporty this big SUV is in its “normal” form.

Still, there are a few features of this SRT Durango rendering which I don’t expect to see on the production model. Mostly, I don’t expect so much Hellcat inspiration in the hood, so scratch the “Hellcat scoop.” I also don’t think that Dodge will use Scat Pack wheels, but I do expect to see something far sportier than the Durango R/T wheels. Finally, I don’t know that we will see a factory SRT Durango that sits quite this low to the ground.

In addition to the 392 cubic inch engine and the unique trim, the SRT Durango will surely have a set of Brembo brakes, lightweight wheels wrapped in high performance tires, and an interior with plenty of logos when it hits dealerships.
