An unlikely Dodge vehicle is about to gain a new Dodge SRT Hellcat (Street Racing Technology) nameplate. Dodge and parent company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), have made a smart decision by including the Dodge Durango to the SRT family, but are now taking it one step further. Currently, the Charger and Challenger are the only Dodge vehicles that offer an SRT Hellcat trim. That will apparently soon change when Dodge adds the Hellcat to its signature large SUV, the upcoming 2021 Dodge Durango. And this addition is not just any SRT title, the best engine offered by FCA is the remarkable 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 engine, and the indication is that’s going in the latest Durango. 

Dodge Teases Fans With Hellcat Emblem

The teaser image of the classic Hellcat emblem was on the front quarter panel of the unseen 2021 Dodge Durango during the latest Dodge promotion video. Dodge doesn’t currently have a Durango Trackhawk, either. The Trackhawk is the Hellcat version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Trackhawk is able to fly from 0 to 60 in just four seconds. The image of the Durango with the Hellcat emblem means the SRT trim for the Durango might take a backseat to the Hellcat trim. The fastest Dodge Durango is currently the SRT that provides a 6.4-Liter HEMI V8 powertrain that provides 475 horsepower to go with a 470 lb-ft of torque rating. While truly impressive, FCA and Dodge are all about pushing the limits and setting new records for strength and attention to detail. Many have wondered, but now the reaction of fans everywhere have only added to the growing speculation. This is the first piece of big news for Dodge in 2020, after having an incredible year in 2019!

Does the Future Have A New Hellcat Trim For the Durango?

Could the upcoming Dodge Durango be the true muscle SUV that drivers have always wanted? This is not the first time the Dodge brand has hinted at the Durango gaining a Hellcat engine, but we’ll have to wait and see if officially this is the newest engine added to an already powerful Dodge Durango vehicle line-up.
