2023 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Safety and Reliability

Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Reliability Rating

2023 Durango SRT Hellcat Safety

The SRT Hellcat version hasn't specifically been tested for safety, but the Durango lineup has. The NHTSA's review resulted in four stars overall, four stars for front crash and rollover tests, and full marks for side crash tests. AWD version fared worse in rollover tests, which should technically apply to the SRT. The IIHS has yet to review the 2023 Dodge Durango and SRT versions.

2023 Durango SRT Hellcat Key Safety Features

It's rather disappointing that most of the Durango SRT Hellcat's driver aids are options, not standard equipment. That includes technologies like adaptive cruise control, advanced brake assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision alert with active braking, and lane departure warning. More basic driver aids do come as standard, though, such as front/rear parking sensors and a rearview camera. Other inclusions extend to electronic stability control, all-speed traction control, hill-start assist, rain brake support, and trailer-sway control. As the high-performance SRT Hellcat, it's good to know that powerful Brembo brakes with two-piece front rotors are standard. A full complement of airbags includes dual front and side-curtain airbags for all rows, along with a driver's knee airbag and a supplemental front-seat side airbag.

2023 Durango SRT Hellcat Reliability

Although the new Durango SRT Hellcat and the rest of the Durango range has not been subject to recalls for the 2023 model year, 2022 models were subject to three - but that won't pertain to the SRT Hellcat, as it was on hiatus. It's worth noting that 2021 models had five issues noted: a stuck EG valve that may cause a loss of drive power, an issue with the steering assembly, the ESC light not indicating a malfunction, the rear spoiler potentially detaching while driving , and loose/missing side curtain airbag fasteners.

Unfortunately, Dodge's warranty isn't the best, with a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. The offering does not include complimentary scheduled maintenance.
