Santa and his elves can now place their order for the 2021 Dodge Durango Hellcat -- the most powerful SUV ever -- and yes, you can too. The 710-horsepower three-row SUV starts from $80,995, without destination. He’ll have to wait until next Christmas to use it, however, as deliveries begin early next year.

The Dodge Durango SRT is powerful, fast, and just won best SUV of Texas and full-SUV of Texas title handed down by the Texas Auto Writers Association.

“The Durango SRT Hellcat can top 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds, cover the quarter mile in 11.5 seconds as certified by the NHRA, has a top speed of 180 mph and can still fit your entire family,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “With three rows of seats, Durango SRT Hellcat is as qualified for a family road trip as it is on a racetrack, a 710-horsepower muscle car for people with families.”

The Durango SRT Hellcat is the top of the lineup of six which also includes the SXT, GT, Citadel, R/T, and SRT 392. Ranging from efficient V-6 power to the unrivaled performance of the 710-horsepower Durango SRT Hellcat, you have options.

New for 2021

For 2021, the Durango’s features a new front fascia, LED low/high projector headlamps, LED daytime running lamp (DRL) signatures, grille, rear spoiler and wheels. On the inside, an all-new, performance-inspired, driver-oriented cockpit, including a new instrument panel, five-times-faster Uconnect 5 with the available largest-in-class 10.1-inch touchscreen, center console and front door uppers, drives Durango’s interior refresh for the 2021 model year. With all of the updates, the interior feels much wider, high-tech and more refined than the outgoing model.


Durango’s performance improvements begin with the new front fascia design, a new chin splitter, updated engine oil cooler duct, air guide and snorkel for cold air induction. A new, unique rear spoiler creates an improved aerodynamic balance with the new front end design, resulting in a massive increase in rear downforce of more than 400 percent (142 lbs. @ 180 mph).

SRT engineers upgraded the Durango SRT Hellcat to improve handling, including several race-inspired technologies and Brembo brakes, resulting in performance numbers never before seen on a Durango.

Standard Equipment/Features

Durango SRT Hellcat comes standard with electric power steering (EPS) with selectable steering tuning to better manage increased grip, both improving handling performance and delivering better steering feel and ease of turning efforts at parking lot speeds.

  • With EPS and standard SRT Drive modes accessed via the Durango’s new 10.1-inch touchscreen or the mid-mounted switch bank, drivers can tailor their driving experience by controlling transmission shift speeds, steering, paddle shifters, traction, all-wheel drive (AWD) and suspension settings
  • SRT Drive modes offer selectable settings for Street (Auto), Sport and Track, while the Custom setting allows the driver to select individual preferences

Race-inspired technologies that come standard for both 2021 Durango SRT models also bolster performance:

  • Launch Control – easily accessed from a toggle switch in the cockpit, manages tire slip while launching the vehicle to allow the driver to achieve consistent straight-line acceleration
  • Launch Assist – uses wheel speed sensors to mitigate wheel hop at launch and, in milliseconds, modifies the engine torque to regain full grip

The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat delivers excellent braking performance, requiring 116 feet to come to a full stop from 60 mph. The credit belongs to the standard massive Brembo high-performance six-piston, two-piece (front) and four-piston (rear) calipers, and vented rotors at all four corners measuring 15.7 inches (front) and 13.8 inches (rear).

The Durango has best-in-class towing capacity across its lineup. The supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat V-8, legendary 392-cubic-inch HEMI V-8 and classic 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 with the Tow N Go Package outhaul every full-size, three-row SUV on the road, with a towing capability of 8,700 lbs. The award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine has a towing capability of 6,200 lbs.
