Dodge has officially allocated the entire production of the 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat, so if you were thinking about buying one new, sadly you can’t.
Following the opening of the order books on November 5, 2020, Dodge has announced that they are closing new customer orders for the Durango SRT Hellcat. Not all hope is gone though, as a limited number of dealer-allocated examples will still be available for a limited time.

The Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat was always going to be offered for the 2021 model year, with the carmaker to build a total of 2,000 examples.
“The 2021 Durango Hellcat is only a single model-year run, ensuring that it will be a very special, sought-after performance SUV for years to come,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand, and Interim Chrysler Brand Chief Executive Officer – Stellantis. “Based on anticipated demand, all dealer allocations have already been reserved, but there is still some time to secure an unsold dealer order.”
Marketed as the “most powerful SUV ever”, the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat is powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine producing 710 HP and 645 lb-ft of torque and paired to an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. The result is a frankly hilarious 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, with the quarter-mile dealt in 11.5 seconds and the top speed set at 180 mph. In a three-row SUV.
In addition, both the Hellcat and the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 variants of the 2021 Dodge Durango offer best-in-class towing capacity, at 8,700 lbs.
The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat came with an MSRP of $82,490, including a $1,495 destination fee, but now that the order books are closed, expect to see the last few dealer-allocated examples offered with a significant markup.
