The Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Returns for 2023
The Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat returns for the 2023 model year and is back and better than ever. The model is ready to reclaim the top spot as the world’s most powerful SUV. Fueled by the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 engine, the 2023 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat will boast 710 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque. In 2021 the Durango SRT Hellcat was introduced as a halo option for the model year, but the model gets a new lease on life as enthusiast demand and feedback were off the charts.
“The Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat has generated a crazy amount of enthusiasm and demand since it was introduced in 2020–we even extended its initial production run–so it seemed appropriate to bring back the most powerful SUV ever as part of our historic 2023 model-year Dodge lineup. Muscle enthusiasts also have families, and the 2023 Durango SRT Hellcat can get those families where they want to go and has the ability to tow 8,700 pounds,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand Chief Executive Officer–Stellantis.
Revealed during Dodge’s 2022 Speed Week as part of its annual Roadkill Nights events, the 2023 Durango SRT Hellcat is the first announcement from the automaker on current and upcoming Dodge products. The brand is expected to make additional announcements on future muscle products in the coming days. With figures to bolster its performance claims, the 2023 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat can go from 0 to 60 mph in only 3.5 seconds. Additionally, it features a top speed of 180 mph and a National Hot Rod Association (NHRA)-certified quarter-mile time of just 11.5 seconds.
Order books for the 2023 Durango SRT Hellcat open in September (2022), while deliveries are scheduled to arrive across dealer lots in early 2023. For the 2023 model year, the Dodge Durango expands its trim lineup, featuring the following six trims: SXT, GT, R/T, Citadel, SRT 392, and SRT Hellcat.
