It turns out that the mass production of the Dodge Durango Hellcat, which is currently the most powerful SUV in the world, will be limited in time. This was stated by a senior representative of the American brand.

A week has passed since Dodge unveiled its most powerful SUV, the Durango Hellcat. The novelty, which will be positioned as a model year 2021 car, is the most interesting car from Dodge in a long time, as well as the most productive SUV in the world. And those who are interested in buying a Durango Hellcat, it is better to take it as soon as it gets to the dealerships of the automaker, as Durango Hellcat will go into production in a limited edition.

Timothy Kuniskis, the big boss of Dodge, said that Durango Hellcat will not be released with as many copies as the same Dodge Demon.

“Serial production of the SUV will last for six months. After we have completed all the preparatory work for the resumption of our plant during the pandemic, we will be able to release a limited number of Durango Hellcat SUVs. At the moment, I do not have the actual number, but it will obviously be less than 2,000 copies. This figure will largely depend on customer demand and how much we can build cars for this six-month period. ”

In fact, the fact that a relatively small number of Durango Hellcat SUVs will be built is to blame for the unexpected COVID-19 pandemic. Mr. Kuniskis also said: “When we move to the 22nd model year, there will be new requirements for emissions of harmful substances by engines, and our Hellcat engine does not meet these requirements,” said Kuniskis. He also said that these same rules will not affect the motors used in the high-performance Dodge Charger or Challenger Hellcat.

Production of the Dodge Durango Hellcat in 2021 starts at the beginning of 2021, and the short model year of the Durango Hellcat does not imply the end of the life cycle of the SUV itself.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Dodge will stop producing the Journey crossover after 2020. An official representative of the American brand confirmed in an interview that the serial production of the Dodge Journey crossover will be discontinued in the fourth quarter of this year.
