We learned a few weeks ago of Dodge's plans for the 2021 model-year, and one of the tidbits we learned was the introduction, for one year only, of a Hellcat version of the Durango.
No pricing was revealed at the time, but it was predictable that FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) wouldn’t be apt to give it away. We now know the cost of admission for the Hellcat: FCA has announced that it will be offered at $116,240 in Canada. The good news? Transportation and preparation costs are included in this eye-watering total.
Under the hood, the variant will benefit from the company’s 6.2L supercharged V8, a beast that will offer the SUV a ridiculous 710 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque. This orgy of power will allow the model to clear 0-96 km/h in just 3.5 seconds and reach quarter mileage in 11.5 seconds. Top speed is a staggering 290 km/h.
An 8-speed automatic transmission will be used to handle delivery of all that awesome power to the wheels.
