2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Production Begins

Among all of FCA’s Hellcat-powered beasts, the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat will be the rarest


  • Pricing for the Durango SRT Hellcat starts at $115,720 in Canada.

  • The mad-mad SUV will be available for one model year only.

  • Yes, the Hellcat is back again, and once more we want one.


It is conceivable that the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat will also be highly sought-after once production ends as this SUV is an attainable hyper-truck that can go toe-to-toe with any would-be performance vehicle. Production has just begun at FCA’s at the three-million-square-foot Jefferson North Assembly Plant (JNAP) in Detroit.

We need to rejoice and embrace these vehicles, especially those with this kind of ICE power as they are the last of their kind. Even Dodge Boss Kuniskis knows that their days are numbered. There’s no need to wait for the end – now’s the time to enjoy.

The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat is gifted with the supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI Hellcat V8 engine which delivers 710 horsepower and 645 lb.-ft. of torque. It is paired with the TorqueFlite 8HP95 8-speed automatic transmission and helps launch the truck from 0 to 60mph in 3.5 seconds, covers the quarter-mile in 11.5 seconds, and hits a top speed of 290km/h (180mph). If towing performance is high on the list of priorities, the Durango SRT Hellcat can manage 8,700lbs.

The fabulous 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat arrives in showrooms this spring. If you want one, don’t wait!
