Dodge Durango SRT 2021: Leaked Shortly Before Release

The first images of the new Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat have been leaked online. These are part of a set of official photographs that the brand has prepared for the presentation of the radical SUV, which debuts the brutal 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI Hellcat V8 with more than 700 hp.

As we pointed out a few days ago, the mysterious teaser released by Dodge was the prelude to the presentation of several models, among which could be the expected Dodge Durango facelift and the new flagship version of this range, the brutal Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat.

These first images only show us a copy of the new Hellcat version, whose features, in theory, are specific to this version. So it does not allow us to point out what will be the news of the update that is about to be presented in the Durango 2021 range.

Although it will be expected that the regular versions of the Dodge SUV will have new bumpers both front and rear, slight changes on the grille and new internal distribution and graphics for the optics, both front, and rear. Since as we can see, the new Hellcat version does not differ too much from the current Durango SRT.

Dodge may only limit itself to unveiling this week the Hellcat version and wait for something more to present the renewed Durango 2021 range and thus give it its deserved prominence. Since the company’s latest teaser only announced Dodge’s new 2021 muscle car range. So it is highly likely that only the new Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody will be featured.

As for the Hellcat version of the SUV, this is as we expected. It follows the same design scheme as the other Hellcat versions of the Dodge catalog. So despite riding with the brand’s most powerful engine, it only has a few changes on an aesthetic level.

Although these are more than enough for this to be the most aggressive variant of the Durango range. Despite its obvious similarities to the current Durango SRT, we now find new and larger air intakes on the front bumper, new air vents on the hood, Hellcat emblems in various areas, and a team of larger tires after which we found a Brembo brake kit with red calipers.

Internally, we will not find too many changes, except for new coatings and those related to the Uconnect information and entertainment system software, which will release the last update of the system with the company’s new connectivity tools, in addition to control applications. typical of Dodge sports versions. As for the engine, it is expected to mount the same configuration that we can find in the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which has 717 hp (707 hp) and an all-wheel-drive system with automatic transmission.
