Dodge Durango SRT
As a prime option for big-family-SUV buyers, the 2019 Dodge Durango sits as the patriarch of the category. Introduced in 2010, the longer cousin of the Jeep Grand Cherokee has certainly aged, but it’s hard to deny it still makes a good case of itself – starting with this powerful SRT variant.
Did we say powerful? The Durango SRT comes with a 6.4L HEMI V8 generating up to 475 hp with side dish of engine sound that brings to mind muscle cars of the golden era.
