Dodge Opens up 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat Orders

November 6th, 2020 by

Performance enthusiasts seeking the 710-horsepower 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat SUV will be able to start placing their orders as of November 6 (2020). Dodge announced that the most powerful SUV ever has a starting MSRP of $80,995 (plus destination fee) and is exclusively available for the 2021 model year only. As a halo product, Dodge expects the 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat to sell out rather quickly. Deliveries are currently programmed to begin in early 2021 as the model is currently in production at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit. 

“The Durango SRT Hellcat can top 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds, cover the quarter mile in 11.5 seconds as certified by the NHRA, has a top speed of 180 mph and can still fit your entire family. With three rows of seats, Durango SRT Hellcat is as qualified for a family road trip as it is on a race track, a 710-horsepower muscle car for people with families,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars — Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA — North America. 

2021 Dodge Durango Lineup

The 2021 Dodge Durango lineup consists of six different trims — SXT, GT, Citadel, R/T, SRT 392, and now SRT Hellcat. Ranging from a standard Pentastar V6 engine under the hood of its entry-level trims to the burly behemoth 710-horsepower SRT Hellcat. There’s an option for every muscle car enthusiast, especially those with a family as the Durango is a three-row SUV with ample space for both cargo and passengers. 

Aggressive exterior features of the 2021 Durango include a revamped front fascia, LED low-high projector headlamps, a new grille, rear spoiler, and wheels. The interior was also revamped and now features a driver-oriented cockpit with a new instrument panel and the all-new five-times-faster Uconnect 5 infotainment system, an available largest-in-class 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen display, and a new center console. Now that the model has been refreshed and updated, the interior is more refined, high-tech, and roomier than the outgoing model. 

The Durango continues to eclipse its competition no matter what, like no other SUV in the world can tow more or haul more and beat the Durango SRT Hellcat’s quarter-mile time. Best-in-class towing capability belongs to the Durango R/T, Durango SRT 392, and Durango SRT Hellcat trims, topping out at 8,700 pounds — continuing the model’s dominating stance to our-haul every other full-size, three-row SUV on the market. Dealer orders for the 2021 Durango are slated to open this summer (2020), while Dodge plans to open the order books for the Durango SRT Hellcat sometime in the fall, with orders scheduled to start arriving in the fall and in early 2021, respectively. 

Dodge ceased production of the Journey and Grand Caravan models and made room to explore more untapped horsepower and other automotive segments. As for the Hellcat moniker, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has sold more than 40,000 Hellcat vehicles since it debuted the nameplate for the 2015 model year. “Our vision was very clear. Our goal was to deliver a Dodge: Big, bold, and aggressive. A three-row, supercharged HEMI muscle car,” added Kuniskis when discussing the new SUV.
