Stellantis Will Build More Dodge Durango SRT Hellcats Because We Can’t Get Enough

If you missed out on the first batch of Dodge Durango SRT Hellcats, this is your second chance


  • All 2,000 limited edition units sold out in a few weeks.

  • The Durango SRT Hellcat is a 710-horsepower super-truck.


It was inevitable. From the moment the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat was announced last summer, everyone with a little extra cash and wishing for the ultimate hyper-powered SUV was going to want one. The initial batch of 2,000 units disappeared quickly which left many customers with cash in hand unable to purchase the SUV. Dodge will fix this and build more.

A number of dealerships had a “sold” order in the system without a truck attached to the sale. This will change soon. Production of the first 2,000 2021 Durango SRT Hellcats was to end this June but now, according to Dodge Garage, Dodge will keep the assembly line going.

“Any time you launch a limited-production vehicle and plan to build fewer units than the number of Dodge dealers across the country, you risk leaving a lot of customers very unhappy. As we finalized the production plan for this amazing SUV, we found a way to move some 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 engines from other vehicles to ensure every ‘sold order’ in our systems will get built. We didn’t want to disappoint these customers and wanted to find a way to ensure they are part of the Brotherhood of Muscle,” said Bob Broderdorf, Director, Dodge Brand.

As a reminder, the 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat is powered by the supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI Hellcat V8 engine that produces 710 horsepower and 645 lb.-ft. of torque. This truck kicks the ¼ mile run in 11.5 seconds and can tow 8,700 lbs.
