This would be the undisputed king of the unibody pickups.
Dodge has managed to get a lot of mileage out of its supercharged, 6.2L Hellcat V8, shoehorning it into all sorts of vehicles - most recently, the Dodge Durango crossover. Just recently revealed, the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat has it all: 710 horsepower, a menacing demeanor, and plenty of space.
But if you were willing to lose some of that space in exchange for the versatility of a pickup bed, you might end up with this: the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Pickup. To be clear, this isn't a real vehicle, nor a design concept from Fiat Chrysler itself, but rather just the latest imaginative "what if" from designer X-Tomi Design.
Boasting a single-row cab and a plenty-long pickup bed, the Durango SRT Hellcat Pickup is the all-American performance street pickup redefined as a high-riding unibody "coupe utility". That's a segment that FCA might be thinking of bringing back in the US, if the rumors of a modern-day Dodge Rampage are to be believed, although the Challenger seems like a more likely - and appropriate - starting point.
Not that we can knock this Durango pickup, which looks like its ready to haul a bed full of lumber around Virginia International Raceway at ludicrous speeds.
Even though the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Trackhawk - a Hellcat-powered crossover with near-identical specs - has been out for several years now, we still haven't quite gotten used to seeing such mondo power in a practical family-hauler. The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat has an extra 3 horsepower on the Trackhawk -which we can guarantee you won't feel behind the wheel - for a total of 710 horsepower. Zero to 60 takes a mere 3.5 seconds; it has a top speed of 180 miles per hour; and it can lap a 2.1-mile road course a full 1.5 seconds faster than the Durango SRT 392 - a feat that's been verified by the National Hot Rod Association.
That's exactly the sort of high-performance pickup truck we could get behind - if only it were real.
