2018 Dodge Durango SRT: Showing Off With Its 475 Horsepower
When a vehicle has 450 horsepower under the hood like the 2018 Dodge Durango does, you better believe that it has all the rights to brag about it. The 2017 Chicago Auto Show is kicking off in just a few short days and the 2018 Dodge Durango is set to be one of those that will be showing off what it means to be a family hauler.
2018 Dodge Durango SRT: It's All About The Power
If you are looking for a powerful family hauler, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT might just be what you are looking for. Getting a family vehicle is not just about practicality as it also has to be about having fun. The 2018 Durango SRT offers both.
According to CNET, the 2018 Durango SRT is equipped with a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine, the same one found in SRT 392 and this is capable of putting out 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. This gives you enough power to go from zero to 60 miles per hour in only 4.4 seconds and travel a distance of a quarter mile below 13 seconds.
If you don't think an SUV is capable of this, think again. The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) has already proven this to be true. The automaker has not yet revealed the top speed of the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT but if you look at the speedometer, the top mark is at 180 miles per hour, which means, yes, it is indeed a very fast SUV.
2018 Dodge Durango SRT: Seven-Mode Drive System
Didn't I say that the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT offers practicality and fun? Here's the deal, aside from the fact that the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is a powerful SUV, it also has seven drive modes to suit different kinds of situations. According to Digital Trends, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT has an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive (AWD) configuration as it standard drivetrain.
If you are not satisfied with this however, you can kick things up a notch with the other modes including the Sport, Snow, Track, Tow, Valet and Eco. You may be better off putting things on Track mode when you are alone though because you don't want to scare your passengers if you decide to go for aggressive power. Switch to Valet Mode and you get a Dodge Charger V6 power configuration, which also offers a lot of fun but less scary for those that are not used to raw vehicle power.
2018 Dodge Durango SRT: The Excitement Begins To Build

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is set to make an appearance at the upcoming 2017 Chicago Auto Show and if you want to see it, I suggest you attend the event.
Reports state that the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT will hit showrooms before the current calendar year ends. The price is expected to be revealed as the launch date draws closer. One thing is certain at this point, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is an SUV worth waiting for.
