Dodge Durango SRT Included in One of Autoblogs’ Best of Lists

February 1st, 2018 by

For some the best of both worlds is a large family vehicle that is a green car, for others the best of both worlds is a large family vehicle that’s fun to drive and packs power, and that’s the Dodge Durango SRT.

The Dodge Durango SRT was just introduced in 2018 and it made Autoblog’s list of Best SUVs We’ve Driven This Year because it offers capabilities unmatched by any other SUV. The Dodge Durango SRT is equipped with a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine and it produces 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque and not only does that pack a punch, but it carries a lot of weight, too.

The Durango SRT has a National Hot Rod Association (NHRA)-certified time of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds and it completes a quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds, making it the fastest and most capable three-row SUV on the market. In addition to speed, it can also tow a serious amount of weight. The Dodge Durango passes all other SUVs with its best-in-class maximum towing capacity of 8,700 pounds.

“If you need a vehicle to check three unseemingly disparate boxes, the Dodge Durango SRT makes a lot of sense. A third row and solid towing capability can be found in lots of competing vehicles. But if you need that car to be really entertaining when you’re hauling your kids and boat somewhere — and a second vehicle is out of the question — the Durango SRT is a prime candidate.” – Autoblog

Dodge Durango SRT Amenities

Aside from being able to tow a decent-sized boat or trailer and being super fast, the Dodge Durango SRT is also loaded up with plenty of amenities and they give it a sporty and luxurious feel. The Dodge Durango is equipped with seven seats and all passengers have plenty of legroom and everyone will enjoy the vehicle’s Nappa leather seats and passengers in the front and second row seats will enjoy the vehicle’s heated and ventilated seats.
