The 2023 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat has room for six passengers in its cabin

710 horses under its hood, making it one of the world’s quickest ways to ferry the kids to school.

The Durango’s supersized powertrain is accompanied by a bulging body with styling inspired by Dodge’s muscle cars.

All-wheel drive is standard, and the Durango SRT Hellcat offers a surprising amount of cornering grip for its size, which adds to its thrill-ride persona.

The cabin is spacious and nicely equipped, with upper trims equipped with near-luxury levels of features and amenities

The 8700-pound towing capacity allows the Durango SRT Hellcat to pull double duty as a big-toy hauler

adds an unexpected layer of practicality considering its performance potential.

Dodge’s most powerful SUV is back by popular demand for the 2023 model year after taking a hiatus last year.

Again powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8, it now features new Plus and Premium trims

which each add luxury features such as leather upholstery, a power sunroof, and premium audio equipment.

We think the Durango SRT Hellcat's asking price is steep but buyers disagreed the last time it was offered

Dodge sold out all of the 2021 models and says there was enough interest to justify bringing the hot SUV back for 2023

Our 2023 model of choice would be optioned without the available gaudy stripes but we would upgrade to the Pirelli P Zero summer tires for maximum performance.

so we’d go with the Premium trim, which includes that stereo plus a leather-wrapped dashboard, and carbon-fiber interior trim.
