The coronavirus has made Durango Hellcat exclusive


Looks like a Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat, presented last week, will not only be the most powerful production SUV in the world, but also a promising target for investment and collecting. And all because of the release of these monsters are relatively few.

To do a limited edition print as it was, for example, the Challenger SRT Demon, no one is going, but production will be limited in time: the machine will be removed from the pipeline only six months after the beginning of the Assembly. About it reported the edition Muscle Cars & Trucks, citing a top Manager of the Dodge Timothy Kunickis.

The main reason is the coronavirus, or rather in the changes that had to be made in the production schedule due to pandemic COVID-19. One of the consequences and became a shortened model year Durango SRT Hellcat. In total, we will build at least 2,000 copies, how much – will depend on own capacities of the company and to demand. Therefore, acceptance of orders will open in the fourth quarter of 2020, production will establish at the beginning of 2021-and by the summer model will be a part of history.


The problem is in the fact that the SUV model year 2022 will not allow you to equip powerful 6.2-liter V8 Hellcat tougher requirements on emissions. While the Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee related in any case will soon shift generations translated to the new architecture.

New Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and Challenger SRT Redeye Super Stock with the same engine will hold on the line longer than the Durango, but they will be replaced no later than 2023. It is assumed that new muscle will be built on a rear-wheel drive Giorgio platform underpinning the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio. The same “cart” will get a new sports crossover Dodge.
