Model Preview

The 2023 Dodge Durango lineup is once again expanding to six models as the Durango SRT Hellcat roars back to life. This model, first introduced for 2021, is back by popular demand as a carryover model. We expect the entire lineup to carry over unchanged.

On the outside, this SUV is all muscle with a beefy look similar to other Dodge muscle cars. Though it's a muscle car through and through, the Durango is also a competent family hauler with a towing capacity of up to 8,700 lbs on some trims, and we don't expect this to change for the 2023 model year. In fact, we don't expect many changes to the 2023 Durango, though rumors had circulated about a redesign that would take the Durango from a unibody frame to a body-on-frame vehicle like the newly introduced Wagoneer. These changes will likely happen in the future for 2024.

Under the hood, we expect the Durango to keep the same range of engines, with the addition of a supercharged V8 for the SRT Hellcat model.

The current base Durango comes with a 3.6L V6 engine which makes 293 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. The max towing capacity for the base model is only 6,200 lbs. If you choose to move up to a V8 engine you can choose from a 5.7L 360 hp engine which makes 390 lb.-ft. of torque or a 6.4L V8 which makes 475 hp and 470 lb.-ft. of torque.

The Durango SRT Hellcat will once again be fueled by a supercharged 6.2L HEMI Hellcat V8 engine which produces 710 hp and 645 lb.-ft. of torque. It can hit the 60-miles-per-hour mark in 3.5 seconds. All Durango models are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, and we expect this to carry throughout the 2023 lineup.

2022 Dodge Durango Interior

On the inside, we expect the current Durango trims to go unchanged except for minor touches. The current Durango comes with features such as an 8.4-inch infotainment screen, six speakers, satellite radio, Apple Carplay, and Android Auto. A 10.1-inch screen, navigation, and wireless device charging are available. We don't expect this to change for the 2023 model year.

In the SRT Hellcat trim, the 2023 Durango will come standard with a 10.1-inch UConnect infotainment screen which is angled toward the driver by 7 degrees, and red accented gauges. It also comes standard with Nappa leather and suede front seats that are heated, ventilated, and embroidered with the SRT logo.

The 2023 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat is highly customizable and has even more available packages which open up more content. Choosing the Plus package on the SRT Hellcat gives you Laguna leather high-performance seats, a trailer tow group, a power sunroof, and adaptive and advanced safety features.

The Premium package includes all this and further adds red seatbelts, carbon fiber interior accents, a leather-wrapped instrument panel, and a Harmon-Kardon 19-speaker sound system. Finally opting for the Blacktop package on the 2023 Durango SRT Hellcat gives you Gloss Black badging and mirror caps, and 20-inch Black Noise wheels.

Pricing & Release Date

Dodge hasn't released pricing information for the 2023 Dodge Durango, but we expect it to stick around current Durango pricing which starts at $38,855 with destination.

Dodge also hasn't given an official release date for the 2023 Durango, but we expect you'll be able to order yours soon. The company has confirmed that you can order the 2023 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat in September 2022. It's expected to arrive in dealerships in early 2023. We expect the rest of the lineup to land around the same time.

Dodge Durango competitors include the Ford Explorer, Toyota Highlander, and Chevrolet Traverse.
