Dodge is ushering in the 2021 model year by upgrading the variants of the Durango at the same time giving it a SRT Hellcat model.
The upcoming SUV sports a more aggressive styling inspired by its corporate sibling, the Dodge Charger widebody. Among the noticeable similarities are found on the car’s front fascia: LED headlights, running lights, hood, and grille, all appearing to be standard features across the lineup.
For the range-topping SRT Hellcat, air intakes are available in place of fog lamps, presumably to aid in cooling the supercharged V-8 engine. The SRT 392 model, on the other hand, is equipped with a new front splitter and rear spoiler.
The new-generation Dodge Durango is also getting three different grille textures: a gloss black grille with larger openings for the Hellcat, a wide honeycomb grille in black for the SRT 392, R/T, and GT models, and a painted Granite Crystal grille for the CItadel and SXT models.
In terms of the wheels, it is offered with no less than six choices that are all measuring 20 inches. Some of the color options include full-on black, silver, and satin carbon.
The tires also vary depending on the variant. The high-end models SRT Hellcat and SRT 392 are available with Pirelli Scorpion Zero all-season tires and P Zero high-performance tires as options. For the other variants, Dodge is offering black tires with red accents, Bright Blue, Sterling Silver, Flame Red, and Gunmetal Low Gloss as choices.
Moreover, the Durango’s aging interior is finally getting a long-overdue update. This includes a new instrument panel, a bigger center console, as well as a 10.1-inch touchscreen for most variants, save for the SXT and GT models that feature an 8.4-inch screen.
Both screen options are packed with the latest Uconnect 5 infotainment system that comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa compatibility. It also retains the climate control settings, which will be joined by a new wireless charging pad and more spacious center console storage.
The 2021 Dodge Durango is now available to order with deliveries set to begin sometime this fall, except for the Hellcat. The starting price for the base SXT model falls at $32,000, followed by the GT model at $36,000. The Citadel is available for $42,000, the R/T at $45,000, the SRT 392 at $65,000, and the SRT Hellcat at $83,000.
