It’s been a long time coming, but the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat is almost here. Our spy photographers have been busy, catching several of Dodge//SRT’s latest three-row supercharged performance SUVs testing on the streets of Metro Detroit. Usually, when we see as many prototypes out running the streets it means that a vehicle debut is right around the corner.
Unlike its platform-mate the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the three-row Dodge Durango will continue to live on for a while longer in its current form. But it isn’t stopping Dodge//SRT engineers from making the last part of the current Durango’s lifespan, its best yet.
While a thick vinyl camouflage bra covers the new performance fascia for the 2021 model, we are getting our best look yet at the new LED headlights underneath. The new headlights look very similar to those found on the 2020 Ram 1500 Laramie pickups, with what looks to be switchback technology, allowing the white LED running lights to turn to amber when the turn signal indicator is on. We only hope then replaced the standard halogen backup lights with LEDs as well, to give the updated Durango a much more modern exterior lighting appearance.
Inside, thanks to our sources, we know there are an all-new dash and center console design coming for the new 2021 model year. The new dash will be a departure from the rounded smooth lines of the current one, going for more of a modern take with squared-off vents and a new 10.1-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system highlighting the interior updates.
We are expecting that the updated 2021 Dodge Durango will make its debut at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) kicks off with its media days on Wednesday, April 8th and Thursday, April 9th. Dodge has released updates of its Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger at the show before, as well as the updated 2014 Dodge Durango.
