The 2024 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Will Still Be Powered By The HEMI V8… For Now
In a time when many dedicated Dodge fans are lamenting the all-electric future of the brand’s incoming e-muscle class (though rumors may suggest otherwise), the fate of the HEMI V8 engine is not lost forever. This is because Stellantis announced that the 2024 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat will still be carrying on the tradition of grit and power into the new model year.
How Powerful is the 2024 Dodge Durango?
We all know that the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger are some of the most recognizable muscle cars in the world. But when it comes to muscular SUVs, the Dodge Durango will be leading the pack. This is one SUV not to underestimate. While it may not appear as large as a Jeep Wagoneer or a Ford Expedition, that shouldn’t suggest that it isn’t as powerful. According to the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA), the 2024 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat has gone on record of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, as well as clearing the quarter-mile with a time of 11.5 seconds and a top speed of 180 mph.
The 2024 Dodge Durango will be available with multiple engine options and six unique trims: the SXT, GT, Citadel, R/T, SRT 392, and the SRT Hellcat.
- The Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V-8 engine produces 710 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque
- The 392 HEMI V-8 is capable of producing 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque
- The 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 can produce up to 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque
- The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine is able to produce 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque
What Is New For the 2024 Model?
The 2024 Dodge Durango is one of those few models that is able to walk the fine line between a power-packed muscle car, and a reputation of being a family-friendly SUV. While it can easily be used to drop the kids off at soccer practice and pick up groceries, it is capable of so much more.
The Dodge Durango Citadel now stands with the Durango R/T for coming equipped with the popular Tow N Go package, delivering best-in-class towing capabilities of 8,700 lbs, a top speed of 145 mph, multiple drive modes (Track, Sport, Snow, and Tow), and that famous Dodge exhaust rumble.
All 2024 Dodge Durangos will also come with Blind Sport Monitoring systems, as well as a Trailer Detect function that comes with Trailer Tow Group.
