Alright guys, as you can see in the Youtube video screen above, we're in the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat. It is a beast with more than 700 horsepower coming out of this beautiful rocket but its an SUV, which also means it's got space.
Its even got three rows. So the question is - is it really necessary? Of course it's not necessary, this is all about fun, If You have a family, if you want people to move around and you really want to get a thrill, a joy ride like a rollercoaster ride this rocket is definitely something to think about Let's take it for the test ride and see what makes it special and unique.
All week, I got to know Hellcat really well and this one is a seriously insanely powerful Front-engine, all-wheel-drive beast with an intercooled pushrod 16-valve iron block with aluminum heads, port fuel injection. Durango SRT Hellcat can travel a quarter-mile in just 11.5 seconds and can go from 0-60 MPH in just 3.5 seconds - and a top speed of 180 MPH Durango Hellcat struts a powerful Brembo brake system with 15.75-inch front rotors with six-piston calipers. The thrill of the ride can be more than worth the expense when you can drive a world-class performance machine this big. But don't think for a second that you can drive it like a sports car. Nope, the weight alone changes the dynamics of its performance, so its best to learn its best assets.
THE STYLE & SWAG
With a sticker price of over 80k you expect a lot more than raw power right? Well step inside and you get lots of truly premium appointments. The dash is classy with imbedded high tech instruments.
comfortable sports bucket seats with soft Nappa leather and beautiful red stitch trim. And the large headrest it's perfectly above the SRT hellcat logo smack in the middle of the seat. Classy, though stitching is premium with the perforation running down the side. Outside, drive performance and inside, it impressive.
We agreed to select the Dodge Durango SRT HELLCAT as a Fan Favorite in the SUV category, so stay tuned for more on that.
