Dodge likes to build muscular-looking vehicles and then make special editions that really live up to that look – with some kind of blackout or gunmetal color thrown in to further bring the point home. The Durango SRT is the latest in the “shove horses under the hood” phenomenon that is Dodge.
Imagine, if you can, an executive meeting in which a lead engineer stands in front of a group of suits and says “Ya, so, our latest plan is to take a family-hauling vehicle and let the SRT guys put their bigass V8 in it. Maybe put some Pirellis on there too.” This being a corporate meeting at Dodge, the VPs of this-and-that all look at the engineer and say “Sure, why not? Have Bob in accounting run up the budget.” Most other automakers would send the poor guy in for psychiatric evaluation.
And so, we imagine, the 475-horsepower (354 kW) Dodge Durango SRT was born. The SRT folks took the same 6.4-liter V8 they stuff into the SRT Challenger and Charger models and put it into the Durango. A little wrench work, some fiddling with the chassis and brakes, and the addition of some sticky P Zero tires and it was done.
