2022 Dodge Durango SRT 392 hills the rumble of its 6.4LHEMIV8 engine, this all-wheel-drive SUV produces 475 horsepower—enough to rip from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.7 seconds. The 2022 Dodge Durango SRT 392 vehicle lineup is designed for maximum speed, style, and performance.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The Durango SRT’s 6.4-liter V-8 gives it far more gusto than most people need in a three-row SUV. But we’re not most people, and if you’re reading this, you probably aren’t, either. The 2022 Dodge Durango SRT 392 lays down its power in a smooth linear fashion. It is brutally quick, too, and sounds oh so glorious under heavy throttle.

Come to think of it, the Durango SRT’s V-8 sounds throaty and thunderous even at half-throttle, which is good, because full-throttle situations on public roads lead quickly to “Sorry, officer” speeds. At the test track, the Durango SRT managed a blistering 4.7-second run to 60 mph, just 0.3 seconds behind the similarly powered two-row Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.

From behind the wheel, it’s easy to feel like a racing champion, even with the whole family on board. The SUV’s steering is sharp and communicative, and the stiff suspension does a commendable job of disguising the 2022 Dodge Durango SRT 392’s weight and high center of gravity.

Over rough stretches of road, the ride is far from pillow soft, a trade-off for the performance-focused set up; the most aggressive Track mode feels downright punishing on all but the smoothest surfaces. But at least the 2022 Dodge Durango SRT 392 can tow 8700 pounds.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

Sipping fuel is anything but the 2022 Dodge Durango SRT 392‘s forte, and the 6.4-liter V-8’s 475 ponies are as thirsty in the Durango as they are in the Grand Cherokee SRT. The EPA estimates it’ll earn 13 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.

We wish we could say the SRT brute-utes redeemed themselves in our real-world testing, but that’s not the case: They both delivered 18 mpg in our hands. For more information about Durango’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The 2022 Dodge Durango SRT 392 is as roomy and family-friendly as the normal Durango but features standard leather sport seats, second-row captain’s chairs, and a flat-bottomed steering wheel with paddle shifters. Both first- and second-row occupants get heated seats; the fronts see ventilation, too.

It’s not the most voluminous SUV out there, but the Durango SRT accommodated a significant number of carry-on cases in our testing (26 with the back rows folded) and provided adequate in-cabin cubby space. This grocery getter will get the job done easily and in record time.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Displayed on a 10.1-inch touchscreen sitting prominently on the 2022 Dodge Durango SRT 392’s dashboard is Dodge’s version of the Fiat Chrysler Uconnect infotainment system.

The software responds crisply to inputs and is very user-friendly. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration and navigation are standard here, and drivers also benefit from real-time traffic and weather updates courtesy of SiriusXM Travel Link.

What sets the SRT’s system apart from those of lesser Durango models is the Performance Pages menu. This set of features allows users to monitor all sorts of car-geek data, such as horsepower, cornering g-force, and even acceleration-time stats.

Think you can beat our 4.7-second 60-mph blast? Turn on the timer from the appropriate tab in the Performance Pages, set your launch control, and find out.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

A handful of driver-assistance features are offered, but few are standard equipment. For more information about the 2022 Dodge Durango SRT 392’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites.
