While both these vehicles are high-end trims, only one stands out when it comes to power, speed, and muscle. 

Here is a look at the powertrain specifications of the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat and the Nissan Pathfinder Platinum.

Transmission: 8-speed automatic

Nissan Pathfinder Platinum

Engine
: 3.5L V6
Transmission: 9-speed automatic

While the Nissan has plenty of muscle for its class, it is no match for the SRT Hellcat. In addition to its V8 engine and an eight-speed automatic, the Dodge boasts a variety of features that complement its power. 

The Durango SRT Hellcat has competition suspension with active dampening, which pairs perfectly with the performance-tuned electric power steering. Meanwhile, the AWD system relies on an on-demand transfer case to ensure that each of the 20-inch wheels has the proper torque to handle almost any situation.
