As you probably know, the updated version of this mid-size crossover is on the way. We are about to see a nice number of novelties, which will help this model to remain competitive until it received a complete overhaul and switch to a body-on-frame platform. As you may presume, there is a lot of typical mid-cycle-update changes to come, mostly in terms of the styling. However, that’s not all. FCA will do a thing that it loves to do most – it will bring more power to us, as we are about to see 2021 Dodge Durango Hellcat.
According to the latest reports, this version will have a premiere at the New York Auto Show this April. We count on a lot of exclusive features. Of course, it will be mostly about the engine, but we also count on suspension upgrades, new styling details and similar things. Most importantly, it looks like the new 2021 Dodge Durango Hellcat will be available in a three-row version.
2021 Dodge Durango Hellcat Engine
Of course, the most interesting part of this version will be the engine. The Durango already comes in a couple of pretty capable performance variants, but this will be a whole new thing. The 2021 Dodge Durango Hellcat will come, as you may presume, with the monstrous 6.2-liter Supercharged V8 engine. We are about to see a version with an impressive max output of 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. With such a huge amount of power, you can expect nothing but impressive performances.
Another interesting thing we could mention in this article is that the 2021 Dodge Durango Hellcat won’t be the only powertrain novelty for the next year. The latest reports also suggest we could see a new eTorque system in the offer, both in the base 3.6-liter V6 and optional 5.7-liter V8 engine.
2021 Dodge Durango Hellcat Design
Of course, this version will come with various upgrades over standard versions but first, let’s start with the changes that will come to all models. The next year will be a year of a mid-cycle refresh, so all version is about to get new styling. If you look at the latest spy shots, you can see that the test model wears camouflage only at the front. Therefore, you may expect to see novelties in areas like grille, headlights, and bumper. Also, we should see new wheels and color options.
On the other side, the 2021 Dodge Durango Hellcat will come with additional upgrades. Of course, some of the things we expect to see are new bumpers and other body kit upgrades. We also count on a new exhaust system, unique wheels and similar things. Besides visual updates, we also count on novelties in the mechanical aspect, particularly in terms of the suspension setup, brakes and similar things.
2021 Dodge Durango Hellcat Interior
The cabin of 2021 Dodge Durango Hellcat should be interesting as well. Before we start with exclusive features, we should mention that the new version will come with three rows. Just like the rest of the lineup, the base version will come with two rows, while the 7-seater will be offered as an option. Therefore, you may count on familiar numbers when it comes to interior dimensions. The first row is particularly generous in terms of space and offers 40.3 inches of legroom.
The second row seems decent too, as it is good for about 38.6 inches. On the other side, the third row is typically tight for the class, as it features 31.5 inches of legroom. When it comes to the cargo volume, you may count on about 17.5 cubic feet behind the third row, while the overall cargo volume goes up to 84.5 cubic feet. These are quite decent numbers for the class.
When it comes to cabin design and appearance, we are about to see a familiar dashboard design. Still, we count on a couple of upgrades, particularly in terms of new materials and similar things. We count on materials and color schemes that will accentuate the model’s hi-performance nature. We also count on new, sporty seats, as well as on a couple of similar upgrades. When it comes to standard equipment, we also count on a couple of novelties, particularly in terms of tech goodies. There is a chance to see a new version of the Uconnect infotainment system as well.
Release Date and Price
As we already mentioned, the 2021 Dodge Durango Hellcat is expected to have a premiere at the upcoming New York Auro Show. Sales should start later in the year. When it comes to the price, we still don’t know the exact details. Still, if we consider that the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk starts at 87.000 dollars, we may expect similar numbers from the corporal sibling as well.
