Pull out your smartphone, open your calendar, and make a note to get really excited during the last three months of 2017, because that’s when the awe-inspiring 2018 Dodge Durango SRT will begin shipping to dealerships across American dealerships. No doubt our Dodge dealership serving Hawaii will have more than a few of these groundbreaking (literally and figuratively) SUVs on-hand, and the team at Windward Dodge Chrysler Jeep® RAM has been dreaming for months about test-driving what is undeniably the fastest, most powerful three-row SUV ever built.
If you’ve been considering a Dodge Durango near Honolulu, HI, you’ll have plenty to chew on when you consider the following intel: for starters, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT boasts a mind-blowing 392-cubic-inch HEMI V8 engine capable of 475 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. Most powerful three-row SUV? Yes indeed.
As for being the fastest three-row SUV ever conceived, just ask the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) – they’re the ones that personally certified the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT model’s 4.4-second 0 – 60 time, and its drag-strip-confirmed quarter-mile time of 12.9 seconds. We’re getting hot flashes just thinking about how much pavement this mother of all SUVs will blister.
Oh, and in the category of “least surprising revelation”, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT model’s 8,600-pound tow capacity is best-in-class.
Of course, harnessing such immense power requires some innovative performance amenities. There’s a new front fascia and lower valence to support this SUV’s LED fog lamps and new cold-air duct, and a dynamic SRT hood with a center air inlet duct affixed between dual heat extractors. And there’s an added bonus too: everyone who buys a 2018 Dodge Durango SRT gets one full-day session at the Bob Bondurant School of High-Performance Driving.
