  • Dodge Durango SRT Pursuit concept

    Dodge's Durango police SUV concept with the heart of a Hellcat Redeye will run 11s on the dragstrip, and easily blow the doors off a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Video from Brent Whitehead on Instagram shows the Durango concept line up against the Trackhawk and blow the hopped-up Jeep out of the water. From the launch to the final stretch, the Durango keeps its lead. It's worth noting the Durango is heavier, longer, and the team was performing some soft launches for the tires' sake. Even still, the Durango walks away thanks in part to a holeshot at the tree. The concept SUV's calling card...
