Looking for a top notch luxury family car for a modest amount of money?

That has all the bells and whistles?

Something unforgettable comes this way.

You can hear it. You can see it.  You can feel it.

It’s Dodge’s 2018 Durango SRT 392, a muscled full throated performance SUV that will make your socks roll up and down, raise hairs on the back of your neck and echo thunderously in your ears.
