New 2018 Dodge Durango SRT at Roberts Chrysler Dodge for Meriden, CT

The new 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is the most potent 3-row SUV with its huge HEMI V8 engine and the performance design installments to prove it! It gets an astounding quarter-mile time of 12.9 seconds (certified by the National Hot Rod Association) and an unbelievable acceleration time of 0-60 miles per hour! This is truly a benchmark that has been established way ahead of where SUV speeds were before now, and coupled with the fact that the 2018 SRT can tow better than any triple-row SUV available with a best-in-class towing maximum of 8,600-lbs! New is the dominant keyword with the Durango SRT model's performance specifications and features. Keeping pace with all this speed and power can be tough, so Dodge enables anyone purchasing a new Durango SRT to get a one day class at the "Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving". To further match the Durango SRT model's out-sized robustness, there are several all-new performance features, like an SRT hood, a Track mode, a 'T-shifter', a Sport mode, performance-tuned AWD, a wide body exterior design, bigger brakes, and a lower valence/front fascia that makes room for a cold-air duct and LED foglights.

Under the Durango SRT's Hood

First off in the power department, you should know that a blistering 475 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 470 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,300 rpm is achieved with the Durango SRT model's 392-cubic-inch HEMI V8! A new functional SRT hood has a cold-air duct and heat extractors to get more power out of the engine quicker. This is paired well with a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission as standard that is intentionally synchronized to this model and can work through things like kick-down events, longitudinal & lateral acceleration, engine torque gradients, and tire slippage- things typically reserved for the transmissions in muscle-cars. There is a standard adjusted electronic T-shifter that caters to the driver that gets smart gear selection and has an Auto Stick as well. Drivers will also like the SRT 7-mode drive system, which has a Sport mode that shortens shift times by up to 50% compared to Auto Mode and ferries up to 65% of the 392 HEMI engine's torque to the rear wheels! Also, a ground-breaking Track mode gains up to 70% of engine torque to the rear wheels as well as 160-millisecond shifts! An all-wheel drive system allows precision on adverse roads and is new for this model as well. This is partnered well with a 'Sophisticated Active Damping System' for high-speed cornering versatility, which works by using both stronger front/rear springs and a rear sway bar for speed and road condition adjustments.

Design of Dodge Durango SRT

New interior amenities and designs abound in the 2018 SRT, such as an SRT flat-bottom steering wheel with SRT paddle shifters, silver accent stitching around a hand-wrapped instrument panel, heated/ventilated front and heated second-row captain's chairs with embossed SRT logos, and a 180-mph speedometer. There is also, available later in the season, authentic carbon-fiber instrument paneling and door bezels. A Gloss Black accent envelops the double exhaust tips (4-inch, rounded) outlined in Nickel Chrome, a performance AWD badging appears on the liftgate, and remember that the Durango SRT gets a 120-inch wheelbase for strong handling in addition to all of that. It can come in one of 11 exterior colors, including Sangria Metallica Clear Coat, White Knuckle, Blu by Yu Pearl Coat, and Bruiser Grey Clear Coat. The new exhaust system has been tuned with resonators in place of the mufflers, bringing in a distinct and sonorous sound to the Durango SRT, completing the welcome sensory overload. Going back to the remarkable insides again, the BeatsAudio premium sound system is standard and has a 506-watt amplifier, 9 speakers, and a subwoofer! A freshly arranged 7-inch, thin-film transistor (TFT) customizable digital instrument gauge cluster lets owners pick from a large range of menu styles and driver information readouts. The Uconnect 8.4" touchscreen media center encases items such as HD radio, navigation, downloadable apps, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM Travel Link/Traffic (with a 5-year trial), as well as the new SRT Performance Pages.

What does the "Track" driving mode do?

The Track mode is for smooth, dry surfaces. It uses a steering gradient feel with hard suspension damping for total cornering mastery. Also, ESC allows maximum yaw and shift speed goes up 50% in 1-4 gears as compared to Auto mode.

Conclusions

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT gets owners upwards of 60 possible safety and security points, like standard all-speed traction control and ESC, standard trailer-sway control, purchasable items like Blind-spot Monitoring (BSM), adaptive cruise control with stop, Uconnect Access with 911 & roadside assistance, Rear Cross Path (RCP) detection, and forward collision warning with crash mitigation. The Durango has seven standard airbags. Specifically, there are full-length 3-row side-curtain airbags, front-row active head restraints, and front-seat-mounted side thorax airbags, all of which are standard.
