    Taking a Guess at the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT Pricing

    Taking a Guess at the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT Pricing-dsc_5151-jpg

    Since the news of the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT was announced a few months back, we have been peppered with questions focusing on the pricing of the high performance SUV and while we don’t have any concrete numbers thus far – we can take some guesses about the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT pricing based on the pricing of the closely related Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and the other Dodge models. Reprinted with permission from TorqueNews.

    Since the current generation Dodge Durango was introduced in R/T form, Mopar fans have been demanding a higher performance model. While the Jeep Grand Cherokee has long been offered in SRT form, the Durango – which is based on the same underpinnings as the Jeep – has never been offered with any of the higher performance SRT Hemi engines. Preference for the Dodge brand and the desire for a high performance 3-row Mopar hauler led people to continue calling for a Durango SRT and at the Chicago Auto Show – that high performance Dodge SUV was finally introduced.
    Click here for a full rundown of the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT.

    The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT will be similar in its basic packaging to the current Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, with a high performance suspension setup, a big Brembo braking package, a premium interior, a unique exterior and, of course, the 392 cubic inch SRT Hemi. The key difference is that the Durango has three rows of seating, so the Dodge is slightly roomier, but other than cosmetic differences, the two SRT SUVs will be closely related in every way.

    Does that mean that the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT pricing will be similar to the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT?
    Maybe not.

    Current Durango and Grand Cherokee Pricing
    We cannot directly compare the current pricing numbers of the Dodge Durango and the Jeep Grand Cherokee on a trimline for trimline basic because the Jeep has more trimlines with more standard features along the way. We can look at the base pricing of each and see that the Jeep starts about $00 more than the Dodge and just looking at MSRP, the top of the line Grand Cherokee Summit costs about $5,000 more than the top of the line Durango Citadel Anodized Platinum. When pricing out those two premium models, the Jeep’s 4WD system costs $500 more than the Dodge’s, but when you look at the standard features of the Jeep, the difference in price makes sense. The premium Durango can be upfitted with various option packages to offer every feature that the Jeep does, but that brings the price up within a thousand dollars of the Jeep.
