The NHTSA has crash-tested the 2023 Durango and the results are middling, with four stars overall and for all tests except the side crash, which received the full five stars. Over at the IIHS, the regular Dodge Durango SRT underwent review and received a Good rating for most of the crashworthiness tests it has been subjected to, although it only managed a Marginal score for the small overlap test on the driver's side.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
While truly modern rivals have moved ahead in terms of safety features and will provide numerous standard features, the Durango SRT 392 is less impressive. Still, at least you get the usual anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, and multiple airbags including dual frontal, side-impact, curtain, and driver's knee bags. You also get a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, automatic LED headlights with automatic high beams, rain-sensing wipers, trailer-sway damping, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The Plus and Premium add to these adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning, a trailer-brake controller, and lane-departure warning. No other driver aids are available.

At the time of writing, the detaching spoiler was the only recall to also apply to the 2023 SRT.
