Dodge Durango SRT First Drive Review: automobilrevue.net/v/enVNaDR2dHBxQjA

We drove it at the launch and hustled it around Indianapolis Motor Speedway and now we finally get a chance to drive it in the real world.

For 2018, Dodge's big SUV finally gets the SRT treatment makes this a stinking fast three row hauler.

      Weak comment. Clearly you missed my review driving it at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

      Has anyone ever provide a full video review of the functionalities of the JEEP SRT.  For example, audio, navigation, engine, steering (driving in straight-line), body inspection, memory settings, wipers, and etc.  I have completed some research, and I have never seen so many SRT for resale (Whether JEEP or Dodge).  I did made some phone calls to sellers, and did get some feedbacks regarding functionality issues.  Let me know what you think.  From what I understand, these are all BAILOUT vehicles.  Safety is a concern.

      Here is my review after owning a 2019 srt for one week. I went through a car wash, then proceeded to spank a Corvette that had "all the racing stickers" on it, twice! At consecutive stop lights, while my 1 year old daughter slept in the backseat. 'MURICA!!

      I usually keep my cars for many years, so I'd be afraid to buy a Dodge.

      We just got a Durango but not the newest model year (15) SXT. And my family isn't the most richest either. But we are all blessed to get that vehicle especially from upgrading from the terrible 03' Windstar 😬. But I'll love to surprise my mother with that. That's her dream model.

      Are the seats comfortable? Only thing I don't like is the 3rd row window shape. Looks minivanish

      So I’m looking to buy this car just an older model like 2014-2016. But I heard something that the SRT after awhile started to drag when accelerating. So I don’t know which one is better. I need some help guys !!!

      I love this vehicle! It looks badass awesome performance and i love the interior. I have a couple of questions. Does the engine run very hot. Is the audio system killer and does the exhaust quiet down cruising on the highway. Also if you go easy on the gas pedal can you get mid teens in gas mileage. THANKS! PS. Great no nonsense review concise and to the point no fluff. Keep it up i'll keep watching.

      Brian Makse In reply to Michael Stone

      Thanks! It was 50-70 degrees when I tested this, but it doesn't run hot based on the two separate tests I've done. The Beats is better than average, but not killer. The exhaust is quiet on the highway with just enough of a rumble to let you know you're rolling in a 6.4 HEMI. I'm incapable of going easy on the throttle. It's programmed in my DNA. Other people might be able to do better.

      My dad gave me his 1999 Durango V8. The flowmaster exhaust system gave it that signature growl. I miss driving it. I will have another Durango in the future--such a beautiful vehicle.

      Ed Whitmore that’s the Ford side of the house - the Raptor and rumored GT500 line might get the huge new 7.0 L that Ford has been working on for a few years. Search for “Ford 7.0L” to find more rumors about it.

      Overpriced? Most fully loaded S.U.V's on the market are more expensive than this and if you want the performance that the SRT Durango gives you have to spend a lot more than $65,000.
