If you want a family hauler that doesn’t sacrifice the basic human desire for driving a lean and lethal road machine, and a large SUV that turns fuel into adrenaline and still hits that sweet spot of daily driving, then your search is over as Dodge made a true high-performance SUV this year with it’s very popular Durango and named it SRT.
One is proudly on display with the friendly folks at Greenville Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM located at 5401 Interstate Hwy 30 in Greenville, Texas or by calling the dealership at 469.517.0043 and be ready to take your expectations for a spin.
After making other Dodge siblings with awesome power under their handsome hoods through the years, they thought why not develop a new Durango for 2018 with mega horsepower. We really can’t blame them that it took eight years since the “proof is in the pudding” as they say. You and yours will agree it was worth the wait. The main event is what is living under the Dodge SRT’s masculine hood. It has the very popular Dodge muscle car’s 6.5-liter Hemi V8 that will produce 475 anxious horses and an awesome 470 lb-ft of asphalt grabbing torque.
That power is mated with a smooth shifting eight-speed automatic and an available rear-biased all-wheel-drive setup that will get you to 60mph in just 4.4 seconds and sound good doing it. No other large SUV can touch it and you will miss the jaws dropping as you move so quickly from that green light. Thankfully, the Dodge SRT stops just as well as it goes needing just 110 feet to stop from 60 mph.
Other new add-ons for stability and control include a stiffened and lower suspension; Brembo brakes on all four wheels, three season tires that keep you planted and the seven driver-customizable drive modes to assist your SRT in any given condition. Also part of the package is a wide body kit, leather and a cool performance exhaust system to let your neighbors know you are coming home. Yes, it will turn heads as well as corners. Another great plus is that your SRT can tow up to 8600 pounds to haul your big camper or boat to those vacation spots.
For your communication, entertainment and safety desires, all Durangos have an available 8.4-inch touch screen that comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and other good stuff to make your time behind the wheel an enjoyable experience. Their highly ranked infotainment system is straight forward with traditional knobs, buttons and so easy to learn. To further make it a pleasant place to spend your time, the interior has comfy leather seats, distinctive dashboard and cockpit, ample storage, abundance of room and all the modern and necessary accessories you need for the drive times. On the outside, the Durango SRT styling is aggressive enough without going overboard. It’s clean and sleek lines come with LED headlights, a big cross-hair grill with a unique hood and a front end that has extra vents to help cool this monster V8. The rear sports a tailgate with wide red LED race track designs that really shows up at night. Everything just comes together with Dodges’ new 2018 Durango SRT with its power, comfortable quiet ride and just a joy to drive and to be seen in.
Hands down, this new addition to the Durango family is the complete package. Now couldn’t be a better time to check it out with Greenville Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM and be prepared for an enjoyable experience. Don’t dream it…Drive it!
