Dodge Durango 2021.

The Dodge Durango 2021 is the base SXT and the powerful SRT Hellcat version of the crossovers.
Today in the review the most powerful serial crossover of 2021, at the wheel of which you feel like in a rocket. And not only because it accelerates to hundreds in 3.5 seconds. The steering wheel, torpedo and central tunnel are strewn with buttons, like an airplane. It will take several days to find out what this or that button is responsible for.

So, without further ado, we have before us the updated Dodge Durango and its charged version of the SRT Hellcat.

Technical stuffing

Restyling turned out to be more than global. Dodge engineers have worked hard to improve the platform to make it easier and more reliable.
Recall that there is a “body in frame” trolley, that is, a power frame that looks more like a frame is attached to the body by spot welding and bolts. The classic solution to the old American auto industry.

Chassis received:
Electric power;
Stabilizers front and rear;
Independent front suspension (on double wishbones);
Mnogoryichazhka back;
VGS system (steering wheel gear ratio can be changed);
Ventilated disc brakes at the front and simply disc brakes without ventilation at the rear.

Regarding the latter, the top-end Durango gets a set from Brembo, including 6-piston calipers in front and 4-piston rear. Also, do not forget that the charged modification has a sports suspension on pneumatic elements.

In general, everything is on the cart, so you can move on to the motor range represented by V-shaped “sixes and eights”:

To the base (STX index), the manufacturer offers a 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V6 at 299 hp. at 352 Hm. The company will make him an 8-band automatic. Drive to choose from — full or only on the rear axle;
The next unit, namely the atmospheric V8 at 5.7 liters, produces 365 hp. at 528 Hm. It also relies 8AKPP and drive to choose from;
The second place in power belongs to the motor, which can be observed in the configuration of the SRT. They put a 6.4-liter “aspirated” with V architecture. The output is 482 hp. at 637 Hm. The transmission is the same, but exclusively four-wheel drive;
And on top is a 6.2-liter V8, which can be «felt» only in the configuration Hellcat. The unit produces 720 hp. at 875 Hm. And this is without any turbine.

The latest engine accelerates the new Dodge Durango to hundreds in 3.5 seconds. A quarter mile race will last only 11.5 seconds. The maximum speed is released to the mark of 290 km / h. By the way, the more modest version (SRT) will please overclocking in 4.4 seconds.

Sensors of light, rain and tire pressure;

Body and dimensions

Regarding the appearance, the most noticeable element of the update was the new radiator grille and LED optics.
The first received a narrower architecture with a fine-grained grille, the second acquired daytime lights and spectacular strokes. The body kit was also fixed and a massive rear spoiler was added.

Naturally, Hellcat deserves the most attention. There is another grille, spectacular sports bumpers, tires from Pirelli and double stripes, indicating sleeping power under the hood. The diameter of the alloys in the base is 19 inches, in the top one — 20.

The general concept of the Dodge cabin has not changed. Here the same torpedo deployed 7 degrees towards the driver. The same combined unit of virtual tidy, 10-inch multimedia screen and ventilation diffusers. The same center console with a mass of keys and the same sports thick steering wheel, also with a mass of function buttons.

Multimedia went through a serious upgrade. A new OS is installed and a more intuitive interface is developed. Dodge assures that the new system is 5 times faster than the previous one.
Regarding the skin, the seats and the torpedo are covered in Nappa leather. The rest, unfortunately, is the notorious American plastic.

It is also worth paying attention to the layout of the cabin. In addition to the classic 5-seater, it is possible to order a 6-seater with two captain’s seats in the second row or 7-seater, with a small sofa of the third row.

By the way, multimedia screens with a Blu-ray player and HDMI are available for rear passengers.
In volume, the 7-seater Durango 2021 will please 487 liters of luggage, if you remove the third row — 1936 liters., And if you add the second — 2393 liters.


It is actually not easy to judge competition. If we consider the Hellcat, then crossovers such as the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and Lamborghini Urus lose to him, both in power and dynamics.

At the same time, the last two are also more expensive by a couple of millions. So for those who are looking for a huge 5-meter carriage with the dynamics of a GT-R or 911 Porsche, it’s better not to find an option.

The basic version can easily be changed to Honda Pilot, KIA Mohave, Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander, and almost in the top trim levels. But, of course, everyone gathered here because of Hellcat.

Price and sales start date

Dodge Durango with the SXT index will go on sale to the local market in the fall of 2020. The charged car will not be in time by this time. SRT Hellcat will arrive at dealerships only by the beginning of 2021.

As for the price, the cheapest option for an American is already available for 2.3 million rubles, but Hellcat costs 2.5 times more expensive — 5.9 million. As for the appearance of the model on the Russian market, no information has been received yet.
