Speed in a Large SUV: Dodge Durango SRT

The new Dodge Durango SRT is a seriously fast large SUV that can rocket down the track and the road in order to give you an exciting drive. While this massive beast is one that can provide you with an excellent driving experience and it also delivers the fun that you’re looking for.

This SUV packs 475 horsepower and 470lb.-ft. of torque from the 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine. This power allows the Durango to complete a quarter mile in only 12.9 seconds and make its way to sixty mph in only 4.4 seconds, putting this car in the list of fast vehicles that you can drive. Here are several vehicles that will lose to the Durango SRT:

Porsche 718 Boxster – This exciting little sports car only has 300 horsepower but it weighs much less than the massive SUV. This car is able to reach the sixty mph mark in only 4.9 seconds which puts it at a half a second loss to the Durango when it races off the line. This means you could comfortably race to the finish quicker in this SUV than in the sports car.

Subaru WRX STI – Moving to a sedan that has been an impressive Rally car, this Subaru is one that can finish the run to sixty mph in 4.6 seconds and the quarter mile in 13.1 seconds. The power from the 2.5-liter boxer engine is 305 horsepower and 290 lb.-ft. of torque, but that’s not enough to make this little car as fast as the Durango SRT.

Volkswagen Golf R – The Golf R is one of the most fun to drive hot hatches on the market today and it has the fun and active ride you want when you’re looking for a small car to drive, but this car is still not as fast as the Durango. The Golf R can reach sixty mph in 4.5 seconds, which is close to the Durango, but not quite as fast.

Volvo S60/V60 Polestar – This is a car that can reach the sixty mph time in the same 4.4 seconds as the Durango SRT, but it has much less power. The engine under the hood of this car brings you 362 horsepower and 347 lb.-ft. of torque while using an engine that’s both turbocharged and supercharged. This car doesn’t reach the quarter mile as fast as the Durango though.

Toyota Supra Turbo – This car has been a world-renowned performance car that tuners have loved for many years. Using the 2JZ engine this car reached some amazing performance levels but the time to reach sixty mph of 4.6 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 13.1 seconds isn’t enough to put this car ahead of the speed of the Dodge Durango SRT.

Acura NSX – The current model of the NSX will blow the doors off the Durango SRT but the previous version couldn’t hold a candle to it. This previous model of the NSX was able to reach sixty mph in 4.7 seconds and make its way across the finish line of a quarter-mile ride in 13.2 seconds to be quick, but not as quick as the Durango.

Audi TTS Coupe – As a small sports coupe this is a car that can give you some impressive performance with its small size and 292 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque from under the hood. The time to reach sixty mph is 4.6 seconds in this car which puts it just a couple of ticks behind the Durango SRT.

BMW 1 Series M Coupe – You might expect this small coupe to be able to rocket past the Durango but it doesn’t reach sixty mph until 4.5 seconds have ticked off. This is a car that weighs a full ton less than the Durango but the 335 horsepower and 332 lb.-ft. of torque aren’t enough to make it faster than the Durango SRT.

Chevrolet SS – While this is a car that actually comes close to the Durango SRT when it comes to power and engine size, this car still finishes behind the Durango. Powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 415 horsepower this car can reach sixty mph in 4.5 seconds which is still one-tenth of a second slower than the Durango.

Ford Mustang GT – This car uses the lauded 5.0-liter V8 engine and it produces 435 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. You would think the Ford Mustang would make its way to sixty mph faster than the Durango but the time the GT turns in is 4.6 seconds. It does match the Durango SRT when it comes to the time it takes to cross the quarter-mile mark which is 12.9 seconds.
