    New exterior performance features include wide body exterior design and functional SRT hood with center air inlet duct flanked by heat extractors, as well as a new front fascia.

New look
The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT features a newly designed SRT hood with functional center air-inlet ducts flanked by heat extractors that help to keep the engine bay cool by removing hot air from the engine compartment. The exterior also features a new front fascia and lower valence which houses the new cold-air duct and LED fog lamps. This new unique look will also include the SRT-inspired grille mesh pattern finish. Its new wide body exterior brings the Durango SRT together as a true performance SUV.

New integrated wheel flares and body-color side rocker panels help provide an aggressive stance. The “392” badges flanking each fender with Bright Chrome and Metallic Grey accents differentiate the ultimate performance Durango.

The 120-inch wheelbase allows for outstanding stability and consistency in high-speed cornering, while a new performance-tuned AWD system helps the Durango SRT set the world-class performance marks.

No horsing around
With its 475-horsepower 392-cubic-inch HEMI V-8 engine, with Fuel Saver technology, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT can haul horses or any toy you put on its hitch. In fact, Durango SRT out-hauls every three-row SUV on the road with best-in-class towing capability of 8,600 pounds.

“The new 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars Brands, Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – FCA North America. “This is what you get, when you take everything great about the Durango and combine it with the performance of the Charger SRT: a 12-second quarter mile, toy-hauling, three-row muscle car.”
Assuring maximum performance under extreme conditions, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT has been validated through rigorous 24-hour track durability testing – a testing standard that every SRT vehicle adheres to.

High-caliber calipers
The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT delivers excellent braking performance, requiring an estimated 115 feet to come to a full stop from 60 mph. Credit belongs to massive new Brembo high-performance six-piston (front) and four-piston (rear) calipers, and vented rotors at all four corners measuring 15 inches (front-slotted) and 13.8 inches (rear).

Luxury, inside and out
Along with its new ultimate performance capabilities, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT provides a combination of uncompromised utility, advanced technology and aggressive styling.

Inside the refreshed cabin of the Durango SRT, new appointments include a hand-wrapped dashboard, SRT flat-bottom performance steering wheel with standard paddle shift, and Nappa leather with suede inserts and silver-stitched SRT logos. Demonic Red Laguna leather interior with embossed SRT logos is optional.
