Power and Performance

The new 2018 Dodge Durango SRT trim level is now the fastest three-row SUV on the market. Depending on which trim level you choose, there are a few engine options. The standard Durango engine is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6. You can also opt for the 5.7-liter V-8 HEMI, which offers 360 horsepower.

The SRT trim level has a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine that offers drivers a whopping 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. That is combined with a cold-air intake that feeds the engine cooler air than the outside air.

The engine is paired with a TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission with SRT rev-matching technology. It has been specifically calibrated for the Dodge Durango to deliver maximum torque to all four wheels. All of this power and torque allows you to tow up to 8,700 pounds.

Stylish Exterior

The new stylish exterior of the 2018 Durango is sure to turn heads. The design has been inspired by Dodge muscle cars, giving it a sportier look than ever before. The tail lamp consists of 192 individual LED lights that blend together to form what looks like one endless ribbon of light. The Durango will also have projector headlamps that illuminate the road ahead. You can also opt for LED daytime running lights and automatic high-beams.

The Durango comes standard with a split cross-hair grille, but you can also choose between five other grille options to give your Durango a more personal feel.

Luxurious Interior

The Durango can seat up to seven people and also offers up to 50 different seating configurations so that you can also fit all of your cargo in. The second row folds flat to offer a 60/40 split and an enormous 84.5 cubic feet of cargo space.

There are many luxury options to choose from to make your Durango even more comfortable. Opt for the available premium second-row fold and tumble captain’s chairs, which not only offer more comfort but also make it easier to go between the second and third row.

The front row comes standard with heated and ventilated seats with eight-way power and lumbar adjustments. Upgrade to Nappa leather seats for even more luxury and comfort.
