Dodge Durango SRT Pursuit Speed Trap Concept Packs A Ridiculous 797 HP

The 475 hp (354 kW / 482 PS) Dodge Durango SRT isn’t a slouch as it can accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.4 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds. However, the model has lost some of its luster thanks to the even more powerful Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

Equipped with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, that produces 707 hp (527 kW / 717 PS) and 645 lb-ft (874 Nm) of torque, the Trackhawk is billed as the “most powerful and quickest SUV ever.” Speaking of the latter, the five-seater can rocket from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.5 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds at 180 mph (290 km/h).

It appears the folks at Dodge got a little jealous of their Jeep counterparts as they’ve unveiled the Durango SRT Pursuit Speed Trap concept. Equipped with the same supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that powers the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, the high-performance Durango has a staggering 797 hp (594 kW / 808 PS) and 707 lb-ft (959 Nm) of torque. Dodge declined to say how fast the concept is, but the company confirmed the engine is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which sends power to a full-time all-wheel system.

While the company was tight-lipped on specifics, they noted the concept can hit triple digit speeds with relative ease. In order to bring such a massive vehicle to a halt, the Durango has been equipped with a high-performance Brembo braking system. It features six-piston calipers and 15.75-inch discs up front as well as four-piston calipers and 13.78-inch discs out back.

Those aren’t the only upgrades as the Durango has a stainless steel cat-back exhaust system and lowering springs which reduce the ride height by 0.6 inches (15 mm). The model has also been outfitted with a custom livery, emergency lights and unique 20-inch wheels that are wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires.

While the concept had the potential of being the most insane family hauler ever created, Dodge removed the second and third row seats to reduce weight. However, the model still has heated and ventilated front seats as well as a unique four-point roll bar.

The concept will compete in this year’s One Lap of America which will see approximately 80 two-person teams travel around 4,000 miles (6,437 km) and compete in various events at several different tracks.
