New 2018 Dodge Durango SRT
Posted on January 26, 2020
At North York Chrysler, we never stop looking forward into the future of Dodge vehicles. While it is early in 2017, the time has come to start taking a closer look at some of the exciting new cars that will be released before the end of the year. One Dodge that has peaked our interest is the upcoming 2018 Dodge Durango SRT. According to a press release from our friends at FCA, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is going to be Canada's fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV available when it arrives in Q4 2017. Because we know drivers who live around our Thornhill, ON dealership are always on the look out for a tough but stylish SUV, North York Chrysler wanted to take a closer look at the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT.
Most Powerful SUV
It's a bold statement, but we think the Dodge Durango SRT will deliver. When you look under the hood, you'll find a 392-cubic-inch HEMI V-8 engine with FuelSaver Technology that cranks out 475 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 470 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,300 rpm. This powerful SUV goes from 0-60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds and cover the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds. We should be clear that all the above numbers are impressive for a sports car, let alone for a Sports Utility Vehicle that has 8,600 pounds in towing power. To control all this performance, The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT gives you a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission that monitors and reacts to grade changes, tire slip, and kick-down events. Much like a sports sedan, this SUV handles expertly thanks to all-wheel drive, an SLA independent front suspension with specially tuned Bilstein ADS and a multi-link rear suspension.
Safety and Technology
Much like all the new and pre-owned Dodge vehicles available from North York Chrysler, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is exceptionally safe. It comes with over 60 available safety and security features including seven standard airbags, standard front-seat-mounted side thorax airbags, standard full-length three-row side-curtain airbags, and Brembo anti-lock brakes. You can also add Blind-Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection, and forward collision warning with crash mitigation.
At North York Chrysler, we are also happy to report that the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT comes with a great deal of luxury and comfort. The first thing drivers and passengers will notice when stepping into this SUV is the hand-wrapped dashboard with silver accent stitching, premium velour bound floor mats, heated front, and heated second-row captain's chairs, and the truly stunning Demonic Red Laguna leather interior with embossed SRT logos. In keeping with the theme of excellence, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT features a redesigned seven-inch customizable in-cluster display, a class-exclusive Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen media centre, and a fantastic nine-speaker premium sound system with a 506-watt amplifier.
