“When it comes to three-row SUVs, most manufacturers highlight civility, practicality and economy. Not Dodge. For the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, Dodge rolled out a brash, in-your-face zag to everyone’s zig in the form of the¬†2017 Dodge Durango¬†SRT. Dodge calls it “America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV.””-edmonds.com

With a 6.4-liter V8 producing 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, the Durango SRT can accelerate to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, according to Dodge. In other words, not only can this SUV seat six and tow up to 8,600 pounds, it can keep up with many a German sport sedan. Thank the new launch control feature for this feat. Like sports cars, the Durango SRT can optimize traction control and shift parameters to ensure the fastest acceleration possible. It has multiple drive modes that are capable of changing the calibration of everything from the suspension and stability control to the center-differential torque split and transmission shift parameters. Combined with stiffer rear damping, springs and anti-roll bars, the Durango SRT is bound to handle about as sporty as a gigantic three-row SUV can. Bringing the speed down are Brembo brake calipers and 15-inch brake rotors up front and 13.8-inch brake rotors on the rear axle.

So when you think Dodge Durango, think utility meets sports car. Think agility and comfort. You will not find a better SUV on the market. So get to All Star and place your order for the 2018 Dodge Durango!
