Dodge has made quite a name for itself stuffing in an incredible amount of power into its vehicles to yield lots of tire smoking fun. Do you want proof? Then take a look at the regular Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT models, the 707-horsepower Hellcats and the upcoming Demon. Knowing that, it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that Dodge is taking the wraps off of a high-powered Durango SRT at the 2017Chicago Auto Show.
Like the other base SRT models, the 2018 Durango SRT is powered by the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine producing 475 hp and 470 pound-feet of torque.
