On the inside, the SUV sports a new driver-oriented cockpit, including new instrument panel, updated door panels and a 10.1-inch infotainment screen.

What helps Durango SRT truly go on the prowl is its 6.2-litre Hellcat V8 engine which helps it develop 710 horsepower and torque of over 870 Nm. It claims to touch 100kmph in just 3.5 seconds. For an SUV, that's quite a blazing pace but Dodge says it can even beat an SRT 392 in a long straight.

In a press statement, Dodge went a step further to highlight the capabilities of Durango SRT. "No SUV in the world can tow more or carry more with a faster quarter-mile time than the Durango SRT Hellcat," it boasted. "Durango SRT Hellcat, SRT 392 and R/T Tow N Go models outhaul every full-size, three-row SUV on the road with best-in-class towing capability of 8,700 pounds."

At a time when auto makers are going electric, Dodge or even parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) have not revealed any such plans. For now, at least Dodge appears contend in using raw fuel power to power its extremely capable machines into the future.
