For the first-time ever, SRT power is now available in the Dodge Durango.

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is powered by the potent 392 cu in HEMI V8 engine with FuelSaver Technology that delivers 475 hp and 470 lb/ft of torque providing Canada’s best horsepower and torque ratings making the new Dodge Durango SRT the fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV.

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT provides enhanced shift quality, performance drivability as well as optimized fuel economy through its TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. This proven transmission was specifically calibrated for the Dodge Durango SRT to optimize shift points and deliver maximum torque to all four wheels. For the ultimate driver-controlled experience, the transmission can be manually shifted using the performance inspired steering-wheel paddle controls on the exclusive SRT-lit flat bottom steering wheel.

When the driver downshifts, the “rev match” function uses the engine controller to provide optimal transition between gears for improved performance and greater stability when downshifting at the traction limit.

When placed in “Sport Mode,” the transmission reduces shift times by up to 50 per cent versus Auto Mode and delivers 65 per cent of the engine’s torque to the rear wheels.
