Meet The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat

New Dodge Durango Hellcat Specs & Features


The all-new Dodge Durango Hellcat is coming to the NYC area, and you can reserve yours now at South Shore CDJR in Long Island. Make no mistake about it; this is your only chance to get one. This manufacturer has limited the exclusivity of this vehicle for the 2021 model year only, so there's no seeing about next year. There's no sleeping on it. There is only right now. Can you handle it? According to reports at CNBC, the all-new Dodge Durango Hellcat is the most powerful production SUV ever1. It owns "best-in-class" in more ways than one. If you're looking to tow, get to work in a hurry, survive the Belt, the BQE, put the smack-down on that guy who's been trying to cut you off, or leave it all behind you in a blaze of glory, then it's time to step up. Your Hellride is waiting.

The Power Is in Your Hands

The faint of heart might stare at the Dodge Durango Hellcat and simply ask, "Why?" Well, why the Hellcat not? Maybe those other guys are ok standing still, going slow, or even moving backward in life. Not you. In fact, the Dodge Durango Hellcat horsepower is rated at 710HP with a catacomb-destroying 645lb/ft of torque and a top speed of 180mph. The Dodge Durango Hellcat has sports-car shaming 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, and the quarter-mile is so fast that the NHRA certified it at 11.5 seconds. That's pretty much going from one end of Central Park to the other in less time than it takes to say the pledge of allegiance.

Of course, all that power and speed is kept under control with four-corner adaptive suspension, steering, monstrous 2-piece ventilated Brembo front and rear brakes, heavy-duty axles, differentials, drive-shafts, and a specialized TorqueFlite-ZF 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle-shift and selectable drive modes. Everything else out there can pretty much just get the Hellcat out of the way.

You'll Love Taking a Journey Into the Depths of Hellcat

Completely redesigned for 2021, and limited to the 2021 model-year only, you know you're in for something special. Open the gates and immediately notice that your floor sills are stamped with "Supercharged" in billet aluminum. Take a look at the doors. You see the inlay that looks like raw polished carbon? That's because it is raw, polished carbon. These hand-crafted pieces are totally unique; no two pieces are the same. And they run through your door panels, dashboard, center console, and rear seating area. Sourced from deep inside the Earth, you've got very precious minerals on your hands. It's a good thing the Dodge Durango Hellcat is fast. A very covetous Hades will be coming for you.

Your heated and ventilated seats can come in premium black leather/Alcantara with contrast stitching or exclusive Laguna leather in Demonic Red. Either color scheme will proudly display embroidered Hellcat badgework on the seats - just in case your screaming passengers forgot what SUV you were driving. All contact surfaces like your steering wheel, dashboard, door panels, and posts are wrapped in hand-stitched, soft-touch leather.

Mindblowing Next-Generation Technology

The new Dodge Durango Hellcat will offer the very latest infotainment system and vehicle control technology. U-Connect 5 will be the fastest interface yet, complete with Bluetooth connectivity, speech command, wireless Apple CarPlay, wireless Android Auto, configurable race options, and customizable performance pages. The generous 10.1" screen makes all vehicle functions easy to control. For that rocket-ship feel, additional buttons and toggles can be found directly below.

You'll love the clutter-free environment that wireless charging provides, but if you have to plug something in, you've got plenty of USB ports front and rear, with USB-C ports as well. Home charging plugs can be found in the passenger area, as well as deployable rear-seat entertainment that stows seamlessly into the front seats. Rear passengers also enjoy captain's seating that can slide and recline. And we've almost forgotten, there's a third row back there for anyone brave enough to tag along and risk losing their lunch.

A Hellcat-of-a-Lot of Your Questions Answered

There's so much to tell you about this insanity on wheels it's not even funny. We've been getting a lot of phone calls and emails about the Dodge Durango Hellcat, so we thought we'd share some of the most common inquiries with you to assist with your research:

How much is a Dodge Durango Hellcat?

All of this fun is estimated to start at $82,4902 but final MSRP configurations have not yet been released. Thus, the final production Dodge Durango Hellcat price remains to be seen. The complete list of accessories and options is forthcoming, but we expect select units to reach price tags near the six-figure mark. For some market perspective, if you want a V8 in the SUV the Queen drives, you'll only get 525HP, no third row, and pay better than $115K for it.

How much horsepower does a Hellcat have?

The Dodge Durango Hellcat has 710 "I-need-to-change-my-pant's-worth" of horsepower. This is the most available horsepower in a production SUV, anywhere.1 What about the Lamborghini SUV, you ask? Sorry Urus lovers. You can take your sorry 641HP and eat our dust.

What does SRT stand for?

Glad you asked! Not to be confused with other Dodge R/T models (which stands for Road & Track), the Dodge Hellcat SRT stands for Street Racing Technology.

When can I order a Durango Hellcat?

Right. Stinkin'. Now. Don't wait. The Dodge Durango Hellcat release date is still on target for Q1 2021. The Dodge Durango Hellcat will only be produced for the 2021 model-year. When they are gone, they are gone. Contact South Shore CDJR to speak with a Hellcat ordering specialist and get on the list before it's closed.

Are all Hellcats supercharged?

Yes. While the Hellcat shares similar architecture with its ancestors, this baby is 90% new. The forged aluminum pistons handle over 21K pounds of combustion pressure, while the pistons' wrist pins boast a hefty 24mm diameter and diamond-like compound coating for near-zero friction. Oil and cooling journals are over-bored, and the block's webbing is heavy-duty and diagonal to handle the force of over 11lbs of supercharged boost.

How much torque does the Dodge Durango Hellcat have?

The Dodge Durango Hellcat has 645lb/ft of torque. But what is torque? Torque is rotational energy. The more torque you have, the easier it is to get wheels moving. Imagine riding a 10-speed bike. Starting in 10th gear is pretty tough. But hit the gym and workout your legs. With stronger legs, starting in 10th gear is easier because you have built more torque.
