This 475-horsepower Dodge SUV makes sports cars from Aston Martin and Porsche look slow.

The new Dodge Durango SRT is one of the quickest SUVs on the market – behind the Tesla Model X, or course. Under the hood is a snarling 475-horsepower Hemi V8, propelling the three-row family hauler to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometres per hour) in just 4.4 seconds. In doing so, that makes it quicker than some sports cars from Aston Martin, Porsche, and Chevy. Take a look at this list.

  • Jaguar F-Type S – 5.5 seconds
  • Ford Mustang EcoBoost – 5.5 seconds
  • Chevy Camaro V6 – 5.1 seconds
  • Ford Focus RS – 4.7 seconds
  • Porsche 718 Cayman (PDK) – 4.7 seconds
  • Aston Martin V8 Vantage – 4.6 seconds
  • Lexus GS F – 4.5 seconds
  • Porsche 718 Boxster (PDK) – 4.5 seconds
  • Volvo V60 Polestar – 4.5 seconds
  • Volkswagen Golf R – 4.5 seconds
  • Dodge Durango SRT – 4.4 seconds

To put it in a different perspective, consider this: The Durango SRT seats seven people, can tow over 8,000 pounds (3,628 kilograms), and it’s in the same realm as some seriously impressive performance cars. Here are a few cars that only beat the big, bad Dodge by tenths of a second.

  • Lexus RC F – 4.4 seconds
  • Maserati Quattroporte S – 4.4 seconds
  • Dodge Durango SRT – 4.4 seconds
  • Lexus LC 500 – 4.3 seconds
  • Cadillac ATS-V – 4.2 seconds
  • Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe – 4.1 seconds
  • Chevy Camaro SS – 4.1 seconds
  • Lotus Evora 400 – 4.1 seconds
  • BMW M2 – 4.0 seconds

When up against some of its closest competitors, the Durango SRT manages to put up a fight. Just a few of its German and British counterparts are quicker to 60 mph (96 km/h), though it does best the $133,000 Mercedes-AMG GLS63 and the $110,000 Porsche Cayenne GTS.

  • Tesla Model X P100D - 2.8 seconds
  • BMW X5 M – 4.0 seconds
  • Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR – 4.2 seconds
  • Mercedes-AMG GLE63 – 4.2 seconds
