While early pricing leaks have revealed the MSRP of the SRT Hellcat model, Dodge today has officially priced the entire 2021 Durango SUV lineup. The base price of the 2021 Dodge Durango is $31,765, excluding destination. That’s approximately $1,000 more than the 2020 model year, with updates consisting of mild exterior changes, and a revised center console in the cabin. Dealer orders for the 2021 Dodge Durango SXT, GT, R/T, Citadel and SRT 392 models are open right now, with deliveries scheduled to begin later this year. But 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat dealer orders won’t happen until this fall, with deliveries scheduled to begin early next year, pending any further delays. Every 2021 Dodge Durango will be built at the 3 million-square-foot Jefferson North Assembly Plant (JNAP) in Detroit.

Further pricing highlights include the 2021 Dodge Durango R/T AWD equipped with the new Tow N Go Package, which now starts at $52,900 USD. With it comes the looks that resemble the SRT models, black Brembo six-piston brakes, Track, Sport, Snow and Tow drive modes, a best-in-class towing of 8,700 pounds, an increased top speed of 145 mph and a new SRT-tuned performance exhaust for more of a muscular burble to let everybody know that this thing is so much more than a comparatively priced Chevrolet Traverse.

For those focused more on a premium fit and finish, the 2021 Durango Citadel starts at $47,805. The base engine in this case is the 3.6L Pentastar V6, with an upgrade to the 5.7-liter Hemi V8. It’s a $1,535 jump from the 2020 Durango Citadel Anodized Platinum trim, which sat above the standard Citadel in the hierarchy, which came in at $42,995. Based on this morning’s announcement, however, it would appear that the Anodized Platinum trim and content was consolidated into Citadel. We’re sure that was just as confusing to read as it was for us to write.

Wonderfully, the MSRP of the 2021 Durango SRT 392 stays flat compared to 2020.

At the top, there’s the 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat, commanding a serious $80,995. That’s the price of entry for the most powerful SUV in the world. Let alone the fastest thing with three rows of seats. And if you want one, you better bribe somebody to get in front of the waiting list. This thing will only be built for 2021, and you can mostly thank the government for that. Moreover, it will be even rarer than the Dodge Demon, as FCA has scaled its supply chain to build just 2,000 examples.

Below is a full breakdown of the 2021 Dodge Durango lineup, before options and destination:

Durango SXT RWD $31,765
Durango SXT AWD $34,365
Durango GT RWD $35,965
Durango GT AWD $38,565
Durango R/T RWD $45,305
Durango R/T AWD $47,905
Durango R/T AWD Tow N Go $52,900
Durango Citadel RWD $47,805
Durango Citadel AWD $50,405
Durango SRT 392 AWD $62,995
Durango SRT Hellcat AWD $80,995

All prices exclude $1,495 destination charge.
