The unexpected revival of the Dodge Durango SRT HELLCAT in 2023 left automotive enthusiasts both excited and bewildered. Those who had missed out on the opportunity to acquire the potent three-row SUV with its 710 horsepower were elated. At the same time, original buyers who had paid a premium for the limited number of 2021 production units felt disappointed. Nevertheless, in recent days, various automotive pricing websites have confirmed that the Durango SRT HELLCAT is set to return for the 2024 model year.
One notable aspect that should please Dodge aficionados, is the continued presence of a supercharged HELLCAT engine in the 2024 lineup.
The 2024 iteration of the Durango SRT HELLCAT does usher in a significant change—the discontinuation of the base-level SRT HELLCAT variant. Prospective buyers now have the choice between the SRT HELLCAT Plus and the SRT HELLCAT Premium trims. However, the privilege of owning the supercharged Durango comes at an increased cost for 2024. The starting price for the Durango SRT HELLCAT Plus is $101,690 USD, while the SRT HELLCAT Premium is $106,895 USD. Notably, both price points encompass the standard $1,595 destination fee.
The SRT HELLCAT Plus package encompasses a range of appealing features, including Laguna leather seats, the Trailer-Tow Group, a Power Sunroof, and an array of Adaptive and Advanced Safety functionalities. For those seeking an even more opulent experience, the SRT HELLCAT Premium package builds upon the Plus offering, introducing elements such as striking Red Seatbelts, a leather-wrapped instrument panel, elegant carbon fiber interior accents, and an immersive 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.
The performance credentials of the Dodge Durango SRT HELLCAT remain as impressive as ever, with solid numbers to validate its prowess on the road. The HELLCAT variant boasts the capability to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour (mph) in a swift 3.5 seconds, achieving a certified quarter-mile elapsed time of 11.5 seconds by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) standards and achieving a remarkable top speed of 180 mph.
As more information continues to surface, we will continue to provide additional details about the 2024 Dodge Durango. This recent insight has been made possible by the inadvertent release of the 2024 Durango’s pricing guide through various automotive pricing websites. Stay tuned for further updates as they become available.
