2020 Dodge Durango SRT Review

Dodge stands out as a manufacturer that still focuses on gasoline, in a world that is changing, with smaller engines, high environmental consciousness and more electric vehicles than ever. Durango SRT is capable of rocking 6 people, reaching 60 miles per hour in under 5 seconds.

The 2020 Dodge Durango SRT has a really comfortable interior, capable dynamics, great driver-assistance technologies and a pretty good starting price of under $65,000. Fuel efficiency is definitely a problem but the SUV is beautiful for many families.

New In 2020

In 2020 there were no improvements for the Durango SRT.

The base price for the SUV is $64,490. The SRT stands out as the top model in the entire Durango line. Standard features include leather-and-faux-suede seats, headed second-row captain’s chairs, navigation, 3-zone automatic climate control and more.

If you were to go for something extra, consider the 19-speaker sound system and the strong Trailer Tow Group IV. You can also go for the Technology Group and you get extra security features you will appreciate.


One of the most popular engines ever for Chrysler was Hemi, 6.4 liter V8. It is included in the Durango SRT and is more than enough for people that drive a 3-rows SUV. The 2020 Durango SRT is quick and sounds exactly as you would expect.

Whenever you drive the SUV, you will feel like a champion. Steering is really sharp and quite communicative. You have a stiff suspension combined with a proper center of gravity. When driving in aggressive Track mode, you get a lot of performance. The full towing capacity of the 2020 Durango SRT is 8,700 pounds.

Fuel Economy

The Hemi offers 475 hp and this does lead to high fuel usage, similar to what you see in the Grand Cherokee SRT. When it comes to fuel efficiency, the 2020 Dodge Durango SRT is not great, with 18 mpg being the fuel consumption you can expect.

Interior And Cargo

The 2020 Dodge Durango SRT is family-friendly and quite roomy. The SRT is preferred to the regular Durango because of the extra standard features included, like sports seats and flat-bottomed steering wheel. Interior trimmings are quite sporty and you will enjoy heated seats for the first two rows.

We are not looking at a voluminous SUV, but you do get a lot of cargo space. In-cabin storage is also really good.

Since we are talking about a 2020 model, you can definitely expect a touchscreen system installed. The Durango SRT includes an 8.4 inch touchscreen and its software offers crisp responses. User friendliness is high and you can choose out of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The SRT is different from the other Durango models in terms of Performance. Features are wonderful for every single car-geek out there, like cornering g-force, great acceleration and horsepower. It is very difficult to beat 4.7 seconds to get to 60 miles per hour.


Crash test results did not come in from the NHTSA or the IIHS. This means no data can be used to determine current safety ratings. In 2018, the IIHS Durango test results were mediocre. While you do get access to different driver-assistance features, only some are standard. If safety is something you are interested in, you do want some extras. The key safety features that are included are:

  • Standard automated emergency braking for rear tires.
  • Standard automatic headlamps.
  • Front automated emergency braking system (optional).


The 2020 Dodge Durango SRT warranty package is average and there are no exceptional policies that stand out. However, it is possible to buy an extended warranty that is available through local Dodge dealerships. Lifetime coverage is also possible but such a policy is only applicable to the very first owner. You cannot transfer it to the other owners.
