Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) has announced that it will make an HPE1000 supercharger upgrade package for the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat. The HPE1000 package is currently available for other Hellcat-powered vehicles like the Charger, Challenger, and the Durango SRT Hellcat’s direct sibling the Jeep® Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.
The HPE1000 supercharger upgrade package will allow the Durango’s supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat V8 to produce an awesome 1,012 horsepower @ 6,500 rpm and 969 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4,200 rpm. These are the same numbers that are on the Trackhawk HPE1000 kit, which lets the Trackhawk run a 2.6-second 0 to 60 mph time and a quarter-mile time of 10.2-seconds @ 133 mph, according to the HPE team.

The HPE team also makes an HPE1200 kit for the 2018 to 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which we covered a while back. It is unknown whether the Texas tuner will adapt and release the package for the limited production run of the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat.
The pricing for the HPE1000 kit has not been released. But for more information and pricing questions, you contact HPE at firstname.lastname@example.org
Powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 engine paired with the quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission, the Durango joins the Challenger and Charger in Hellcat form, delivering 710 horsepower and 645 lb.-ft. of torque in stock form, giving it the power to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5-seconds and cover the quarter-mile in 11.5-seconds. The Durango SRT Hellcat runs 1.5 seconds faster than the 6.4-liter HEMI V8-powered 2021 Dodge Durango SRT392 on a 2.1-mile road course, or equal to 9 car lengths after one lap. Dodge will build the Durango SRT Hellcat for the 2021 model year only.
