2021 Dodge Durango SRT 392 is all about the hustle

With a 475-horsepower V8 under the hood and oodles of family-friendly capability, the Dodge Durango SRT 392 makes for quite the interesting hauler.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

The 6.4-liter Hemi V8 that carries the 392 designation has been in Chargers and Challengers since 2015.

What's more, some recent quality-of-life updates make this a surprisingly well-rounded and very compelling three-row SUV.

While the greater Durango family has plenty of competitors, none can quite match what the SRT brings to the table.

Throwing a potent V8 into an already solid three-row family SUV creates a special kind of machine that is just flat-out fun all the time, full stop.
