What is the power source exactly, as well as it's related functions?

The Durango SRT has 475 horsepower (at 6,000 rpm) and 470 lb.-ft. of torque (at 4,300 rpm)-- all because of the 6.4L 392-cubic-inch HEMI V8! A TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission is enhanced for the SRT and can handle phenomena like lateral & longitudinal acceleration, kick-downs, tire slippage, and even engine torque gradients! An all-wheel drive system is in control and working in tandem seamlessly with Brembo brakes. A standard customized electronic T-shifter with Auto Stick is accessed for smart gear selection. There is a wide-ranging SRT seven-Mode drive system, which can utilize a Sport mode to lower shift times nearly in half and will direct almost 65 percent of torque to the back wheels. The separate Track mode empowers 160-millisecond shifting speeds and, on dry, flat tarmac, funnels an exemplary 70 percent of engine torque to the back wheels! Track mode's tools consist of hard suspension damping, a steering gradient, and a sway bar on the backside for superior performance on corners at high speeds. There's even more in those categories, plus, there are the other 5 modes too! Of mention as well is that this SUV is one of the few that intentionally kept a low-range transfer case with a neutral position in its AWD repertoire. First of all, this neutral position in the transfer case enables flat-towing without hurting powertrain elements. This also truly assists with light off-road scenarios, like getting a boat up a steep launch or reversing direction with a trailer-- both of which are fairly regular uses that owners will appreciate were thought of.

Is the inside outfitted as much as the drivetrain is?

Short answer: YES! A BeatsAudio deluxe sound system is standard and throws into the mix a sub-woofer, 9-speakers, and a 506-watt amplifier! The Uconnect 8.4" touchscreen media center assembles navigation, Android Auto, new SRT Performance Pages, HD radio, SiriusXM Travel Link/Traffic (w/5-year trial), downloadable apps, as well as Apple CarPlay. New for the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT as well are silver accent stitching on a hand-wrapped instrument panel, available 'Dinamica' suede headliner/A-pillars, ventilated front seats with embossed SRT logos, an SRT flat-bottom steering wheel with SRT paddle shifters, a 180-mph speedometer, and heated 2nd-row captain's chairs. Gloss Black, 4-inch, rounded dual exhaust tips make their appearance as well as up to 11 exterior color paints to choose between, some of which are Vice White, Dark Black Clear Coat, Octane Red Pearl Coat, Billet Clear Coat, and Sangria Metallica Clear Coat. For a kick, buyers can mix any of those with the SRT-available new interior color: Demonic Red! The Durango SRT is wisely-sized for all of its roles with a 120-inch wheelbase and has an informative liftgate AWD badging. A contemporary 7" thin-film transistor (TFT) digital instrument gauge cluster allows buyers to pick types of menu looks and other similar interface appearances. At the same time, these styles don't interfere with speed or ease-of-use, which is definitely appreciated among its drivers. People who ferry kids around will appreciate the available 3-row seating that also has accompanying 85 cu. ft. of cargo capacity, 50 possible seating configurations, and options for second-row captain's chairs that car-seats can be latched to. The Durango in general also supplements that passenger-friendly fact with a class-exclusive Blu-ray video rear entertainment system with double high-resolution 9" screens for movies & games, each with a wireless remote & headphones!

What are all the Modes that make the Durango SRT so special?

The prior-mentioned Sport and Track modes certainly bring value and substance to the Durango SRT, but let's discuss the other modes briefly as well, to understand the range incorporated! The Valet mode brings the Durango SRT down to a V6-esque level of performance by locking the transmission to a less optimal setting, among other things like disconnecting the steering wheel paddle shifters as well as the launch control. The Auto mode is where most drivers will set the Durango SRT, with wider shift times completed by a suspension and steering programmed to be more forgiving. The Snow mode moves to a 50/50 weight distribution for better AWD handling, takes command of 2nd gear during launch to reduce wheel slippage, and even increases stability control levels to 100 percent. There is an ECO mode to assist those trying to conserve energy, and that Mode allows 2nd-gear starts as well as partners with Fuel Saver Technology. Last but not least, Tow mode switches to 50/50 distribution (for the AWD), activates total stability control, trailer sway control manifests, and even engine torque noise levels are mitigated with an Active Noise Cancellation system. These modes certainly make the Durango SRT special and capable for any situation!

Final Thoughts on the 2018 Dodge Durango

This is an incredible all-around vehicle, with road-confidence, plenty of room for all and their gear, and towing capability. The Durango has seven standard airbags to confidently rely on, consisting of full-length 3-row side-curtain airbags, front-seat-mounted side thorax airbags, and also front-row active head restraints. The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT builds-in 60 available safety and security accommodations, like all-speed traction control, standard trailer-sway control, never mind the full-day driving class at the "Bob Bondurant School of High-Performance Driving" for any buyer. Blind-spot Monitoring (BSM) is an option, as is adaptive cruise control with stop, Rear Cross Path (RCP) detection, forward collision warning with crash mitigation, and Uconnect Access with 911 & roadside assistance. Let's talk wheels for a second too-- the size is 20" x 10" for any, and standard issue is a forged aluminum, polished, 5-spoke Black Noise finish, while the option is composed of the same except they are fully painted black and are split five-spoke! That should be more than enough to get things started here! You would be wise to consider the Durango SRT, why not give us a call about it at (877) 821-1248 today!
