Dodge Durango Hellcat Production has Officially Started

Production has begun for the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat at Chrysler’s 3 million-square-foot Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit, Michigan. For 2021 alone, Dodge is equipping their most potent power plant known as the Hellcat in what is expected to be the world’s most powerful SUV.

The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat features a jaw-dropping 710 horsepower derived from its massive 6.2L HEMI V8 engine seen in Dodge’s other high-performance muscle car iterations such as the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody.

Offering unseen performance compared to your everyday SUV, the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat is capable of sprinting from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, can complete a quarter-mile run in 11.5 seconds and has a top speed of 180 mph. Combining blistering sports car performance with everyday practicality, the Durango SRT Hellcat also seats seven and boasts a best-in-class towing capacity of 8,700 Lbs.

Durango Hellcat is a limited edition

With a starting MSRP of $80,995 (plus a $1,495 destination fee) that includes one day of professional instruction at Bondurant High Performance Driving School, the Durango SRT Hellcat is limited to just 2,000 units.

Although the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat hits showrooms this spring, I wouldn’t get too excited about securing one for yourself, because as of this moment all models are spoken for.  With no units currently planned for 2022, the world’s most powerful SUV is currently the world’s most collectible.
