2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Release Date

We’re absolutely stoked to talk about the newest member of the SRT Hellcat family. Joining its siblings as the pinnacle of performance, the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat entered production earlier this month in Detroit, and we couldn’t be more stoked about its upcoming release date. It’s scheduled to arrive across the country sometime this spring, so any time over the next few months. We thought we’d dive into some of the details we already know to get you as hyped as we are.

2021 Dodge Durango vs Ford Explorer

We’ve written about the 2021 Dodge Durango previously, and we had a lot of great things to say about it, ranging from its great capabilities as an SUV, to its incredible power when equipped with the Hellcat engine. How does it compare to one of its biggest competitors, the Ford Explorer though? Let’s stack these two against each other and see which one comes out on top. 

The Durango and the Explorer are both larger midsize SUVs, both having the ability to seat seven people. The Durango is slightly larger all around by a few inches, meaning you’ll have more room for your cargo and passengers. The Durango has a pleasant, comfortable interior, but it’s geared more for performance. You’ll have more power, better towing abilities, and a bigger 10.1 inch infotainment screen, making the Durango more sport oriented. If you really want to have fun while driving, the Durango is for you.

If you want more customization choices, then the Durango is on top again. The 2021 model year has seven different variants to choose from, the SXT, GT, R/T, Citadel, SRT 392, and an SRT Hellcat, boasting four different engine options. The Explorer has five different variants to choose from and only three engine choices. More choice provides you the ability to really make your Durango exactly how you want it.

If you want an impressively powerful SUV that can both take your kids to school while also having the capability to tow like a work truck, then compete in (legal) street races, the Dodge Durango is for you. The Ford Explorer is a fine SUV, but it feels more tame and bland than the Durango, not having the handling, speed, or work capabilities the Durango has. If this SUV has piqued your interest, come on down to Briggs Dodge RAM to give it a test drive.

The Beastly (and Limited) Dodge Durango Hellcat

Dodge has unveiled the Durango Hellcat, and it is a beast. Proclaimed as the most powerful SUV ever, the Durango Hellcat is unequivocally one of the most exciting SUVs on the market. According to Tim Kuniskis, head of Fiat Chrysler’s passenger cars division in North America, Dodge is expected to produce fewer than 2,000 of the Durango Hellcat models, which will go into production early 2021. This monster will be a single run only due to emission regulations that begin the following year. 

This high-performance variant features a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi Hellcat V8 engine that boasts 710 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. “We are a full, distilled performance brand,” Kuniskis said, “To do that, it was the perfect time to bring the most powerful versions of all of them. It just kind of made sense to do them all at the same time.” 

The new Hellcat model is part of an updated lineup for the 2021 Durango, which will begin arriving in showrooms this Fall. Changes include exterior styling tweaks and significant upgrades to the interior, including a redesigned driver cockpit and next-generation infotainment system. This mighty SUV will be rare, so don’t dally!
