2018 Dodge Durango SRT for Sale | Toronto, Mississauga | Ontario Chrysler
Great news, Durango lovers: we have 2018 Dodge Durango SRTs for sale in our Toronto, Mississauga showroom serving Brampton, Oakville and the GTA, Ontario. If you’ve backed away from SUVs before because you feared a drop in your cool quotient or worried about a lack of power, you need to give the Durango SRT a good long look. Mixing muscle strength with practicality, good looks and utility, we think you’ll love it even more after a test drive.
As with the SRT Challenger and Charger models, the Durango SRT SUV features a 6.4-liter V8. It generates 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. With 115 hp and 80 lb-ft more than the 5.7-liter V8 offered in the Durango R/T, it gives good growl. You can tone down shift aggressiveness as needed by selecting one of seven drive modes. Dodge tells us that the Durango SRT will do zero to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and a quarter mile in 12.9 seconds. See ya!
The biggest surprise may be the agility this big heavy SUV vehicle offers. You’ll enjoy the quick and accurate steering with the bonus of nice rotation in corners, aided by the 52/48 percent front to rear weight distribution. Sticky Pirelli P Zero run-flat tires and adjustable Bilstein shocks ramp up the handling agility quite significantly. And this is a terrific all-wheel drive choice for seasonal versatility: the Durango SRT has multiple drive modes, including one specially designed to handle snowy conditions. And check it: this baby has a towing capacity of 8600 pounds, with a Tow Drive mode that spreads power distribution to 50/50, controls trailer sway and quietens down the usual roar of the exhaust during tows.
Bigger than most midsize SUVs but still not full-size, it’s longer and wider than a Grand Cherokee SRT. It features enough space for a third row, which brings seating capacity to six. It’s a good looking and comfort-focused specimen on the inside, too, with its flat-bottom steering wheel, leather instrument panel, and heated front and second-row chairs. Gone is the Durango's rotary shifter, now replaced by a more traditional T-style shifter. Gas-wise, you can opt to deactivate four cylinders for cruising mode, a very sweet feature when fuel prices jump around.
