2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Pricing Announced, Nearly Demon Money
Owning the world’s most powerful SUV doesn’t come cheap.
When in doubt, just add more power – that seems to be the motto nowadays at Dodge. The Durango is a prime example by offering nearly 300 horsepower even in the base form, culminating with the new SRT Hellcat available only for the 2021 model year. Packing a colossal 710 horsepower, the range-topper is simply put, the most powerful production SUV in the world. Today, Dodge is announcing full pricing details for the 2021 Durango lineup.
While the base SXT trim with rear-wheel drive starts off at $31,765, the flagship SRT Hellcat available exclusively with all-wheel drive will set you back $80,995. It’s one of the most expensive Dodge models ever, pricier than the recently unveiled $79,595 Challenger SRT Super Stock. There’ve been other more expensive Dodge models in the past, such as the Viper and the $84,995 Demon, but the Durango SRT Hellcat is right up there in terms of pricing.

For a vehicle that has been around since 2010, Dodge sure knows how to keep the Durango relevant. Aside from introducing the SRT Hellcat with ludicrous power, the Durango R/T AWD with the Tow N Go Package is also new for the 2021 model year. It starts at $52,900 and comes with the beefy 5.7-liter HEMI V8 providing 8,700 pounds of pulling power and a 145-mph top speed.
In this specification, the midsize SUV has an SRT performance exhaust providing a meaner soundtrack, along with Brembo brakes and 20-inch SRT wheels with Pirelli all-season tires. Dodge will also install a new electronic limited-slip differential and active damping for a smoother ride, along with additional drive modes: Track, Sport, Snow, and Tow.
People in the market for a fancier Durango will opt for the revised Citadel model offering more standard equipment for a starting price of $47,805. It can be had with either the Pentastar V6 or the HEMI V8 and comes with an impressive amount of standard safety and assistance systems, including adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning. Dodge also throws in blind-spot monitoring and brake assist, plus a lane-keep assist and forward collision warning (with active braking).
Dodge dealers are already accepting orders for most trim levels, with the order books for the SRT Hellcat to open this fall. Deliveries of the 710-horsepower monster will commence early next year. FCA is confident the model won’t clash with the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk (from $87,400) as the Durango SRT Hellcat “is loud and in your face” like a muscle car, according to Tim Kuniskis, head of passenger cars at FCA.
Note: All prices exclude the $1,495 destination charge. See the press release area below for full pricing details.
