The 3 SRT Engines That Power Dodge Performance Vehicles

October 12th, 2017 by

Dodge and SRT may have dropped the Dodge Viper from the lineup for the 2018 model year, but that was only so they could make room for new models and more power. For the 2018 model year, Dodge and SRT have the most powerful and fastest lineup Dodge has ever had.The 2018 lineup includes six performance models, and three engine options.

SRT 392

After a halt in production for more than 50 years, Dodge brought back the 392 cubic-inch HEMI engine in 2011 and it has been a staple to the Dodge lineup ever since. The SRT 392 engine is a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine and for the 2018 model year it is available on three performance models, the Dodge Challenger SRT 392, the Dodge Charger SRT 392 and the all-new 2018 Dodge Durango SRT. The addition of the  engine to the Durango lineup not only makes the Durango a fierce competitor in the performance SUV segment, but it also gives it plenty of power to make it a towing beast.
