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.
