To nobody’s surprise, the Durango SRT Hellcat is now sold out
Dodge just announced that the entire production run of the 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat has been spoken for, proving yet again that, even as the world marches towards the EV future of tomorrow, horsepower sells today.
When the Durango SRT Hellcat was announced in November of last year, Dodge proudly proclaimed it as the “most powerful SUV ever,” with a whopping 710 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque. When we got our hands on the monster SUV later that month, we discovered that, sure enough, adding a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 to a three-row SUV was an excellent idea.
By the looks of things, we aren’t alone in that sentiment. Dodge says that a few of the 2000 total units are still available through dealer-allocated units, but we’d expect those to disappear in roughly the amount of time it takes the Hellcat Durango to run a quarter-mile (11.5 seconds, the factory claims). Don’t expect a second chance on this behemoth, either; the 2021 model year is the only year Dodge plans to offer this fire-breathing three-row.
We wouldn’t be surprised to find a large banner somewhere in the Stellantis boardroom that reads, “If you build it (with a Hellcat engine), they will come.” Dodge seems to have exactly zero trouble locating an adequate buyer base for whatever vehicle can fit a Hellcat, be that a four-door sedan, a retro muscle coupe, a three-row SUV, or a ground-pounding pickup truck. As far as we’re concerned, the more the merrier. Now, which way to the Chrysler Pacifica wing?
