2024 Dodge Durango AlcHemi Last Call Means the End for Dodge Hemi

  • The 2024 Dodge Durango SRT 392 AlcHemi is capped at 1000 examples.
  • Dodge says production of all Hemi-powered Durango models will cease after 2024. Details about other Last Call models are to come.
  • Heavy-duty Ram pickups might be the last bastion for the Hemi V8, although Hurricane power in the next-generation 2500/3500 Ram pickups would be a possibility.

The writing has been on the wall, but Dodge confirms the Hemi is leaving the Durango after 2024. Just like the company did for the Charger and Challenger, Dodge is rolling out a series of Last Call models to celebrate the Hemi-powered Durango’s departure. Kicking off the series of limited-production machines is the Dodge Durango SRT 392 AlcHemi.

The star of the Durango AlcHemi’s show is still the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 under the hood. However, this $3595 package comes with a set of 20-inch by 10-inch SRT wheels, yellow SRT Brembo brakes, “392” embroidered seatbacks, and unique badging.

There’s also some exterior graphics to let the world know that your Durango is a special edition, which is capped at 1000 examples. The Hemi will still send 475 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque through the eight-speed automatic transmission.

It’s not just the 6.2-liter and 6.4-liter variants of the Hemi that are going away. Dodge says the 5.7-liter Hemi will also depart from the Durango lineup when the 2024 calendar expires. If you do the mental math, you’ll realize these changes at Dodge will leave the entire brand without a Hemi in its roster in 2025.

So where does the Durango—and the Hemi—go from here? Stellantis’ new 3.0-liter turbocharged Hurricane inline six-cylinder is taking the Hemi’s place in the Ram 1500, which means it could find a home under the hood of a Durango, or a Durango replacement.

The Hurricane is also replacing the Hemi in several Jeep models, although the Hemi-powered Wrangler 392 is still relatively fresh. Heavy-duty Ram pickups might be the last bastion for the Hemi V8, although Hurricane power in the next-generation 2500/3500 Ram pickups would be a possibility.

Dodge already sent off the Charger and Challenger models, so it shouldn’t be a huge surprise to see a high-horsepower Durango sneak in before the Hemi curtain closes. While the grand total for this Durango AlcHemi will set you back $91,390, pricing and production limits for other Last Call models will come later this year.

Do you think Dodge will ever bring the Hemi back? Tell us your thoughts below.
