Worth the weight? Massive 2018 Dodge Durango SRT prices start at $64,090

July 6, 2017

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT makes all the right noises to us.

Seating for seven? Yup. Standard leather and suede? Yup and yup. Massive 6.4-liter V-8 that makes 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque? Oh baby. Would you like a quarter-pounder with your 12.9-second quarter-mile, kiddos?

When it goes on sale later this year, the 2018 Durango SRT will start at $64,090 for the high-performance family hauler (Eds note: It'll haul more than a family. —AC) in the waning phase of its life.

For that much, which includes a mandatory destination charge, Dodge promises sub-five-second 0-60-mph sprints, a seven-mode drive selector system, an 8-speed automatic, all-wheel drive, a sonorous exhaust system, leather everywhere, an 8,700-pound tow rating, 20-inch wheels with Pirelli rubbers wrapped around them, and massive Brembo stoppers at all four corners to arrest the physical contradiction of moving 5,510 pounds that quickly.

MUST READ: The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is a ferocious family hauler

Before scoffing at the $64,090 entry price for the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT, it's worth noting that its competitors are even more. The BMW X5 M, a bonkers-level SUV in its own right, starts just north of $100,000 and the Mercedes-AMG GLE63 is even more at more than $109,000. Heck, even the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, which has the same engine and fewer seats, is roughly $2,000 more to start.

Sure, there are less expensive ways to transport a family to the store and to soccer practice. Very few of them will be as entertaining as the Dodge Durango SRT, however.
