Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Production Runs Through June: Report

710 hp family haulers built through June

  • 710 hp SUV set to see around 2,000 built

  • Report cites dealer update as saying production will run until June


We didn’t expect Dodge to build all that many copies of the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat. Dodge predicted somewhere around 2,000 of the monster utes, making it even rarer than the 840 hp Challenger SRT Demon. Now, a new report says that production is getting ready to ramp up and that the end of production has been extended thanks to the overwhelming volume of orders.

The report comes from Moparinsiders.com, who quoted dealer sources as saying that production of the 710 hp three-row SUV was getting ready to ramp up at the Jefferson North Assembly plant.

Another dealer update sourced, though, told them that Dodge and SRT were adding “incremental production due to overwhelming orders.” They cite the dealer update as saying that sold orders will be built first, which isn’t much of a surprise as the books on those have been open since November. Production of the Hellcat model is set to end in June.

With six months of production for the 2021 Durango Hellcat, it’s possible that more than the original 2,000 or so could end up being built, but this is not likely to be a high volume unit by any stretch of the imagination. FCA has also said that it would be a one-year-only model due to manufacturing and government-related constraints on the vehicle’s architecture.

So if you’re still on the fence about ordering one, it might be a good idea to get your name on the list, because it’s not likely that there will be many, if any, of these just sitting around in dealer inventory this summer.
