Chicago 2017: 2018 Dodge Durango SRT unleashed

The new Durango SRT will be available in the fourth quarter of 2017. Dodge is touting the performance of the 2018 Durango SRT by calling it the "most powerful and most capable" three-row SUV.

The company announced all the details of their upcoming 2018 Dodge Durango SRT ahead of the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, which will be held today, February 9.

According to Detroit Free Press, Fiat's claim of the Durango SRT being the most powerful three-row SUV is not without merit as the new model does come with a beefier engine.

Making its debut at the Chicago Auto Show, the Durango SRT uses the same 6.4-liter Hemi V8 you'll find throughout the SRT range. You get the new Dodge Durango SRT - a 475-horsepower (354-kilowatt) family hauler that will get you to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in less than four and a half seconds. However, summer tires are reported to be optional, as is a set of lightweight forged aluminum wheels.

Other features included in the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT will be full Brembo brakes that will be able to stop the massive vehicle at 115 feet from 60 miles per hour. The instrument cluster is a 7-inch TFT screen, while the hand-wrapped dashboard is standard, featuring exposed contrast stitching and has an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment screen, incorporating navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and SiriusXM.

Powered by the proven 392 cubic inch HEMI V8, the Durango SRT delivers 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, sprinting from 0-60 miles per hour (97 km/h) in just 4.4 seconds and covering the quarter mile in 12.9 seconds as certified by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). The monstrous V8 engine produces 475bhp of power and a colossal 637Nm of max torque. It'll run the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds, which isn't bad given it weighs 5,510 pounds.

The seven drive modes include auto, sport, track, snow, tow, valet and ECO, Dodge reports in the release. The Durango SRT has all the active tech you expect these days with forward-collision warnings, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alerts, and a slew of airbags.
