In the realm of high-performance vehicles, the Dodge Durango has proven itself as a formidable contender, especially when equipped with the mighty Hellcat V8 engine. As the automotive world transitions towards electrification and efficiency, the era of the iconic Hellcat powerplant appears to be drawing to a close. Dodge, however, is determined to give its loyal enthusiasts a memorable farewell with the announcement of the Last Call series for the 2024 Durango – a special edition trim that promises to be the final chapter in the saga of the 700 horsepower V8.

Dodge's Last Call series for the Durango kicks off with the SRT 392 AlcHemi, a trim that pays homage to the brand's storied history with a touch of alchemical inspiration. The clever play on words combines "alchemy" with the classic Hemi engine, resulting in a distinctive appearance package that transforms the Durango into a rolling work of art.

The SRT 392 AlcHemi doesn't just sound intriguing; it looks the part too. Yellow Brembo brakes, special graphics adorned with yellow accents, and a yellow-themed interior make this Durango stand out from the crowd. Complementing the bold color scheme are black exhaust tips, 20-inch Satin Black wheels, black badges, and carbon-fiber interior elements that add a touch of sophistication. True to its alchemical inspiration, the SRT 392 AlcHemi embraces a metallic theme in its color choices. The options are essentially non-colors – black, two shades of gray, and white. This deliberate choice emphasizes the performance-oriented and distinctive features of the vehicle, allowing the unique design elements to take center stage.

Powertrain and Performance

While the SRT 392 AlcHemi is a feast for the eyes, it remains true to its roots beneath the surface. The 6.4-liter Hemi engine continues to roar under the hood, producing an impressive 475 horsepower and 640 Nm of torque. This power is efficiently delivered to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, ensuring a thrilling driving experience that Dodge enthusiasts have come to expect.

Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis expressed the brand's commitment to celebrating the legacy of the V8 Hemi engine that has powered their performance SUV segment. The Last Call series will not be limited to the SRT 392 AlcHemi, as Dodge hints at future trims, including a Last Call treatment for the Durango Hellcat. The Hellcat variant, still boasting 710 horsepower in stock form, will extend its dominion into the 2024 and 2025 model years.

As the automotive landscape evolves, enthusiasts are witnessing the end of an era with the final hurrah of the Hellcat-powered Dodge Durango. The SRT 392 AlcHemi, with its captivating design and potent performance, serves as a fitting tribute to the iconic V8 engine. With limited production and a promise of more Last Call trims on the horizon, Dodge ensures that the farewell to the Hellcat is as powerful and memorable as the engine itself.
