The Dodge Durango likes to build muscular-looking make special editions that really fit that look with some kind of black-out or gunmetal color thrown to bring the point home. The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is the latest addition to the Dodge “push the horse under the hood” phenomenon.
The New 2018 Dodge Durango gets an extra dose of attitude as if it needs more thanks to some parts sharing with the high-performance Durango SRT (examined separately). The R / T models reflect the wide and nasty SRT by borrowing its flared tusks, front bumper, deep grille and vented hood, plus two of the signature colors of the SRT: Blue B5 and In Violet Metallic. GT pads fitted with Blacktop Aspect or Brass Monkey packets also get the scoop-tastic hood. Inside, all models are equipped with a sports steering wheel with shift paddles and a new shifter. The features come with standard 5.0-inch infotainment display is abandoned in favor of a larger 7.0-inch unit; the optional 8.4-inch infotainment system is still available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Basic SXT trim adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel and rear parking sensors to the data sheet; The Durango GTs feature the addition of a power liftgate and leather and suede bucket seats; Front parking sensors are now standard on the R / T and Citadel versions. The only bad news is the sad death of the SXT Plus value model.
The 2018 Dodge Durango is available with three engines including a 3.6-liter V6 developing 293 hp (295 hp in dual-exhaust models) and 260 lb-ft of torque, a 5.7-liter V8 to 360 hp and 390 hp. c. lb-ft., and a 6.4-liter V-8 with 475 hp and 470 lb-ft. All engines are exclusively equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
If it was our money, we would go with the SXT Plus trim level. At the starting price of $ 33,290.
