2018 Dodge Durango Ramsey NJ
Can you believe that the Dodge Durango has turned 20 years old this year? You know what they say: time flies when you’re driving a fun 7-passenger SUV.

You know what else flies? Anyone driving the all-new 2018 Dodge Durango SRT down the road! Whether you’re riding around town or taking trips on busier routes like the NJ Turnpike and Garden State Parkway, you can feel exhilarated.

That’s because of this model’s 392-cubic-inch 6.4L HEMI V8 paired with specially calibrated TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission & performance-tuned AWD. But there’s so much more that makes the Durango SRT so unique.

2018 Dodge Durango SRT Features

You’ll feel like you’re driving a race car when you get behind the wheel of this special Durango model because of its wider body, Brembo high-performance brake calipers & vented rotors, engine-cooling SRT hood with functional cold-air duct & heat extractors and more.

There are also 7 driving modes (Auto/Sport/Track/Snow/Tow/Valet/ECO), so you can personalize your ride. And the Active Damping System helps properly tune the SUV's suspension to give you the driving experience that you desire.
