If you’re in the market for a crossover, you might be best served finding your way into the vehicle named “Crossover of the Year” by the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press.

If there was ever a place to have tested the strength and endurance of the Durango SRT, the high-altitude stretch of the Rocky Mountains is it. The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT was named “Crossover of the Year” by a committee of Rocky Mountain Automotive journalists based in the Rocky Mountain region.

“The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT made a great impression in its first RMAP event by how well-integrated this high-performance vehicle is for the Rocky Mountain region,” said David Muramoto, President-Rocky Mountain Automotive Press. “From clean, functional styling to how well the powerful drivetrain and electronic systems work together, the Dodge//SRT team did fine work in impressing RMAP voters.”
