Today marks the start of production for the new 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat at the three-million-square-foot Jefferson North Assembly Plant (JNAP) in Detroit.
"Like welcoming a new member to the family, today's launch of the Durango SRT Hellcat celebrates the newest addition to the Brotherhood of Muscle," said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand and Interim Chrysler Brand Chief Executive Officer - Stellantis. "The Dodge Durango Hellcat joins Charger and Challenger at the pinnacle of performance, and today's start of production in Detroit deserves a spot on every enthusiast's calendar."
Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat models are scheduled to begin arriving to dealerships in spring 2021. The most powerful SUV ever is only available for the 2021 model year and comes with a starting Canadian manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $115,720 (excluding $2,595 destination).
The Durango SRT Hellcat is the most powerful SUV ever, delivering 710 horsepower and 645 lb.-ft. of torque from the proven supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI® Hellcat V-8 engine paired with the quick-shifting TorqueFlite 8HP95 eight-speed automatic transmission. The Durango SRT Hellcat has a 0-60 mile-per-hour (mph) time of 3.5 seconds, a quarter-mile elapsed time of 11.5 seconds as certified by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and a top speed of 290 km/h (180 mph).
No SUV in the world can tow more or carry more with a faster quarter-mile time than the Durango SRT Hellcat
The Durango has best-in-class towing capacity across its lineup. The supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI® Hellcat V-8, legendary 392-cubic-inch HEMI V-8 and classic 5.7-litre HEMI V-8 with the Tow N Go Package out-haul every fullsize, three-row SUV on the road, with a towing capability of 3,946 kg (8,700 lb.) The award-winning 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 engine has a towing capability of 2,812 kg (6,200 lb.)
For more than 100 years, the Dodge brand has carried on the spirit of brothers John and Horace Dodge. Their influence continues today as Dodge shifts into high gear with muscle cars and SUVs that deliver unrivaled performance in each of the segments where they compete.
2021 marks the year that Dodge is distilled into a pure performance brand, offering Hellcat-powered, 700-plus-horsepower SRT versions of every model across the lineup. For the 2021 model year, Dodge delivers the drag-strip dominating 807-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock, the new 797-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Redeye, the most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world, and the new 710-horsepower Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat, the most powerful SUV ever. Combined, these three muscle cars make Dodge the industry’s most powerful brand, offering more horsepower than any other North American brand across its entire lineup.
In 2020, Dodge was named the "#1 Brand in Initial Quality," making it the first domestic brand ever to rank No. 1 in the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study (IQS). The Dodge brand also ranked No. 1 in the J.D. Power APEAL Study (mass market). These results are historic because it marks the first time a domestic brand has earned top spots in both J.D. Power studies in the same year.
