Firstly introduced in 1998 as a midsize SUV, the second generation of Dodge Durango started in 2004 and ended in 2009. After a break, Durango came back in 2011 as a full-size SUV. Now, before the fourth-gen starts, Dodge released the all-new 2019 Dodge Durango SRT.
The SRT model adds sportier exterior, better-equipped interior, and it will make Durango the fastest SUV in its class. It seems like Dodge is trying to avoid the fourth-generation of Durango, and SRT trim is a perfect way to do that. The best thing you can do is to bring interesting innovations to the customers, and Dodge is bringing an SUV with room for six, new engine and premium interior package.
2019 Dodge Durango SRT Exterior is more Sportier
The 2019 Dodge Durango SRT has a new face with sportier and smaller front grille and the air dam is now wider and larger. Dual LED fog lights are placed in both corners and the front fascia comes with a wide air intake. The headlights are slightly better and the turn indicator looks clearer.

Some of them are Bruiser Grey Clear Coat, Granite Clear Coat, Ocean Blue Pearl Coat and Vice White.
2019 Dodge Durango SRT Interior Design
The interior of an all-new 2019 Dodge Durango SRT is luxurious but no less than expected, after all, this is a top-range trim. The dashboard is hand-wrapped and stitched and if feels soft to the touch, and just like the rest of the upholstery, it comes with white contrast stitching. The shift know is new and replaces a T-handle shifter. The steering wheel does look the same, but now it is also stitched and wrapped.
The center of the steering wheel posses SRT logo on it. The instrument cluster is nice looking with the new graphics and a speedometer.
