Dodge Durango SRT: description and specifications.
The brainchild of Dodge and SRT, which specializes in upgrading production models of the Fiat Chrysler Automobile concern, the off-road version of the Dodge Durango SRT crossover, was presented in February 2017 at the Chicago auto show. The manufacturer proudly calls the car "the fastest six-way crossover," which is true: the model acquired a higher-powered power unit, a spectacular aerodynamic body kit, an effective braking system, and a retuned suspension.
Certain changes were made to the saloon of the charged version of the Dodge Durango:
- The front seats were replaced with sports seats with improved lateral support and rich functionality, including ventilation, heating and electric.
- In the basic configuration carbon fiber, natural leather and suede are offered as a trim material.
- In the center of the steering wheel, on the backs of the seats of the first and second rows appeared brand logos SRT.
In general, the internal space of the Dodge Durango SRT is practically no different from the standard version of the third-generation crossover.
The main changes in the charged version of the Durango SRT affected the technical component of the car, leaving the exterior and interior of the crossover almost intact. A special model received a 6.4-liter V8 gasoline-type engine, paired with an eight-band automatic transmission. A crossover with such an engine can be accelerated to 100 km / h in 4.4 seconds, and the maximum speed is limited to 290 km / h.
Dodge Durango, of course, is equipped with all-wheel drive, exhaust system with modified settings, high rigidity springs and adaptive shock absorbers. The independent suspension of the crossover is represented by parallel levers at the front and a multi-link design at the rear.
The transverse stability stabilizer has become tougher by 18%, which the manufacturer pays attention to. Such a solution has improved the control and behavior of the crossover on the highway at high speeds.
The brake system is represented by Brembo mechanisms,steering is equipped with an electric power steering.
The Dodge Durango SUV will not be delivered to the Russian markets. The minimum price of a crossover for the American market is 3.73 million rubles, which is quite acceptable for the charged version. You can order Durango SRT only from American dealers with a subsequent payment for delivering a car to Russia, which will cost a very large amount.
