It's substantially more than either of Dodge's Hellcat car models.
One of the oldest vehicles in the Dodge stable, the mid-size Durango crossover, is getting a fresh breath of life as it enters its final model year, but most important of all the changes introduced for 2021 is this: the arrival of a new Hellcat-powered model. Following in the footsteps of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat will pack a supercharged 6.2L Hemi V8, in this application good for 710 glorious horsepower, paired with an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission, a beefed-up suspension, and plenty of stopping power.
We already knew that Dodge's latest Hellcat-powered model would be a special, limited-availability vehicle with fewer than 2,000 units built, but what about the price tag?
Thanks to Mopar Insiders, we now know: the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat will carry an $80,995 price tag, before tax, destination, and other fees. As that outlet points out, that's an $18,000 premium over the price of the 6.4L Hemi-powered Durango SRT, and it's just $4,000 less than the MSRP of the very special, very potent 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.
And that's before any options are added. Among the list of optional packages that can be ordered, Mopar Insiders reports, are a $2,495 Premium Interior Package, $2,395 Technology Group, $1,595 Red Laguna Leather, $1,495 Black Package, and a Trailer Tow Package with Brake Control for $1,195. There's also a Lightweight Group, but that's available at no extra cost.
Load it up, and you can probably get the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat up to roughly a $100,000 MSRP, assuming this pricing info is accurate; Dodge hasn't actually confirmed pricing for the Hellcat Durango just yet. That's steep, but not when you consider what the vehicle is, and what it can do. Despite its heft, the Durango SRT Hellcat will be capable of making the sprint to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, and it will top out at 180. It has an NHRA-certified quarter-mile time of 11.5 seconds.
