How does the 2018 Dodge Durango control that much engine power?

The Durango SRT sends a miraculous 470 lb.-ft. of torque (at 4,300 rpm) with 475 horsepower (at 6,000 rpm)-- all due to the 392-cubic-inch HEMI V8! Inside the cockpit there is a standard acclimatized electronic T-shifter that is harnessed for smart gear selection and that has an integral Auto Stick. A TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission is adjusted for use within the SRT grade and can adapt to racetrack-style events like tire slippage, engine torque gradients, lateral & longitudinal acceleration, and kick-downs! Be sure to explore the SRT 7-mode drive system, which applies a Sport mode to almost halve shift times and directs nearly 65 percent of torque to the rear wheels. There is a Track mode that ramps up 160-millisecond shifting speeds and, on dry, level pavement, redirects an extraordinary 70 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels! Track mode utilizes a steering gradient, hard suspension damping, and a rear sway bar for excellent performance on turns at swifter speeds. An all-wheel drive system is in force and absolutely helps control things when roads become less than ideal, as do the new-for-2018 Brembo brakes.

Can you outline the drive modes that are possible?

We're starting things off here with the Valet mode, which migrates down to a V6 area of performance locks the transmission to a lower capability. It also disconnects launch control access and the steering wheel paddle shifters. The Snow mode force-controls 2nd gear during launch scenarios to mitigate wheel slippage, a 50/50 weight distribution occurs to assist the AWD, and stability control levels escalate to 100 percent. The Auto mode shines for the everyday driver with a suspension and steering set to a more chill vibe, with dialed-down shift times. Capability did not take a detour in the towing department with all of the new speed additions, and the Tow mode carries in 50/50 distribution for the AWD, full stability control, the Active Noise Cancellation system deploys (important to reduce engine noise in the cabin), and trailer sway control is activated. Also of note is the ECO mode, which manages second-gear starts mixed with Fuel Saver Technology and suggesting shift times to the driver that works to conserve fuel. The above-mentioned Sport and Track modes are also a part of the system and all together make the Durango SRT a force to be reckoned with!

What are the overall features like?

There are 11 exterior color paints to elect from, like Octane Red Pearl Coat, Vice White, Dark Black Clear Coat, Sangria Metallica Clear Coat, and Billet Clear Coat. New inner touches abound in the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT, like an SRT flat-bottom steering wheel with SRT paddle shifters, silver accent stitching on a hand-wrapped instrument panel, a 180-mph speedometer, ventilated front seats with embossed SRT logos, and heated 2nd-row captain's chairs. Round, Gloss Black, four-inch dual exhaust tips is what most will see of the Durango SRT when it pulls ahead of them in a race! The Durango SRT has a 120-inch wheelbase and all-wheel drive badging is seen on the liftgate. A modern 7" thin-film transistor (TFT) digital instrument gauge cluster lets drivers select one of many menu versions and detail display interfaces. Accessible later in the year, genuine carbon-fiber shows up on dashboard paneling/door bezels. The Uconnect 8.4" touchscreen media center incorporates new SRT Performance Pages, navigation, Android Auto, HD radio, downloadable apps, Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM Travel Link/Traffic (w/5-year trial).A BeatsAudio deluxe audio system is standard and combines a subwoofer, a 506-watt amp, and 9-speakers!
