This month, AutoPacifica tallied all the responses and has given its annual awards to automotive brands. How satisfied were new vehicle owners of the 2020 Dodge Challenger? From the wide variety of syndicated studies (over 73,000 reported responses from drivers) came word that the famed Dodge muscle car is a hit and owners love driving it. This award is just the first of many to come for the latest Challenger. Taking home the prize of Sports/Sporty Car for the fourth year in a row shows how valued the Dodge product has become for not only the brand for its Dodge fanbase that loves what the Challenger offers. 

Examining the AutoPacifica Award

The annual New Vehicle Satisfaction survey includes the data that is turned into awards known as VSAs. Across the wide range of vehicles, categories include new car, light truck owners, a variety of luxury car segments, and more are covered. Among the winners for the 2020 model year include winners from 17 brands, but only one fit the mold for the Sports Car selection. What makes this distinction important is how the process unfolds. Car shoppers can feel 

 “AutoPacific VSAs give consumers true, unbiased insight into which vehicles are providing their owners with the most satisfying experience,” says AutoPacific president George Peterson.

The 2020 Dodge Challenger scored high marks in 17 of 27 satisfaction categories. The highlights include its fun-to-drive character, power, braking, acceleration, exterior design, and passenger roominess. The Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock came out for the 2020 model year and offered an incredible array of strength from its 807 horsepower engine. The high-level engineering helped shoppers fall in love with the performance and handling provided. The upcoming 2021 model year will be no different as Dodge will include the naturally aspirated 6.4-Liter “392” HEMI engine into the Widebody Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker and T/A 392.

The R/T Scat Pack Shaker, one of the most popular choices, will gain the remarkable cold-air grabbing Shaker, which helps blast cooler air into the powertrain is a major highlight. The V8 engine stays providing exhilarating performance with a faster cool down after moving at high speeds. The 2021 Challenger T/A 392 Widebody will also come with a painted Satin Black hood, Satin black wrap roof, and deck lid. The deck lid will have graphics that are paired to the T/A body-side stripes with Air Catcher headlamps with LED-illuminated T/A logos.

2021 Challenger Drag Pak To Offer Drivers 1,200 Horsepower

Drag Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

The Dodge brand has found a way to push the limits of the world’s fastest production muscle car. Formerly that illustrious title belonged to the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock, but today the newest Challenger will gain that recognition. Dodge has announced the 2021 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak is ready for customers to reach out to purchase this all-new trim. However, there is one thing to keep in mind, there is an extremely limited amount of these Challenger Drag Pak muscle cars being made. 

The Exclusive Dodge Challenger Drag Pak

Buyers contemplating whether or not to try and own this absolute speed monster will not have a large amount of time to decide. The Dodge brand is set to produce just 50 of these new Drag Pak Challengers and orders began this week. The good news for those lucky enough to afford and purchase one is how much horsepower and strength that will be offered for this unique Dodge vehicle. We last saw the Challenger Drag Pak back in 2015 and it has been improved to surpass any Challenger that came before. A new special supercharged 5.8-Liter engine was added and it was chiefly created and manufactured for racing. The exact specs of this Dodge muscle car are anticipated to give owners a lot to love. 

What Can Drivers Expect With the 2021 Drag Pak?

While we have questions about all the perks that have been added to this year’s Drag Pak, we know some things that are expected to be included. The correct figures of the powertrain have not been revealed just yet, but the previous Drag Pak made granted 1,200 horsepower and we can expect this one to offer the same or even more. The Drag Pak increases drag racing equipment that provides a driver to possess complete control of the Challenger with a manually-shiftable three-speed automatic transmission and solid rear axle. Like any vehicle that makes runs on a drag strip, the Drag Pak carries including a roll cage, wheelie bar, and even a parachute. 

Inside the Challenger Drag Pak

The 2021 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak will include race tires that were produced for implementing lighting quick times. The new Drag Pak will surpass any and all previously made Dodge Challenger on the strip without much of a contest. For those who are looking to acquire this new piece of muscle car history, the exclusive path towards owning one comes from calling 800-998-1110. The number went live for calls on September 9th, 2020 with a likely short term opening for customers to gain this piece of Dodge muscle car history. Our bet is on the Drag Pak selling out well before October 2020. After all, just look at how impressive the Dodge brand has grown its sales this year alone.

More Dodge Challenger Options?

Since Dodge will only produce 50 of these 2021 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak, we know very few customers will be able to obtain this muscle car. Dodge has listed a steep price point, but they have good reasoning. With all the amenities and wicked-fast speed granted, it’s no surprise by Dodge has the opening price set at $143,485 MSRP (Plus destination fee). Keep in mind, there is no way the Drag Pak will be turned into a production vehicle. Dodge is not going to create this vehicle again after the order is placed for the original fifty. This is similar to the limited production run of the beloved 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

We’re confident customers will be swept up by the joy provided with the 2021 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak, but understanding how rare this vehicle is, we know many readers might be too late to buy one. And although the 2021 Dodge Challenger is coming out soon, we can extend our customers the courtesy of the 2020 Challenger lineup. The 2020 Dodge Challenger is fierce and waiting to be driven, come find them today at Miami Lakes Automall.

Dodge Has Improved Its Fastest Charger Ever

Redeye Miami Lakes Automall

Photo Credit: Dodge

Dodge is currently witnessing a tremendous surge in recent months with its muscle car purchases. Despite the production slowdown and buyers holding off on spending for a great portion of 2020, the rebound is underway. Stellantis (Formerly Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) Head of Passenger Car Brands Tim Kuniskis, who overlooks Dodge, has seen the recent retail sales of the Dodge Challenger coupe and Charger sedan are up “significantly” from last July. This is intriguing news for fans of the Dodge brand. With the Dodge Challenger kicking off its best quarter ever, we know that Charger fans can expect the same. More good news is coming for shoppers with the arrival of the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye set to come out in late 2020.

Breaking Down the Numbers

Let’s look at those Challenger numbers. The sales for the Dodge Challenger rose up nicely with over 60,000 Challengers sold every year from 2015-2019. Back in 2010, only 36,791 were sold, so the growth is definitely obvious. Keep in mind, this comes despite commercial sales that have slowed down with the number of rental car companies holding off on adding any Challengers due to the long-lasting coronavirus pandemic that has slowed travelers. The Charger is going to gain a lift in purchases when its 2021 model year rolls out with its best Challenger yet. Fans of the Dodge Charger lineup have more insight on the outlook of trims, alternatives, and styles than ever before and Dodge has ensured customers will be happy. Best of all, the pricing starts at a low number compared to vehicles that offer the same amount of horsepower for other brands. Most ChargerWhile the bulk of Charger transactions are the base trim and the mid-range trims, the newest Challenger to come into the picture is revamped for the 2021 model year. The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye has more to offer customers than any Dodge Charger that came before it. 

What Makes the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye So Impressive?

Ever driven or been inside an SRT Hellcat? The world moves quickly in a hurry from point A to point B, so much so that owners will tell potential buyers its worth every penny. The value of speed and top-notch engineering is evident with every Dodge muscle car, but none more so than the 797 horsepower SRT Hellcat Redeye, beginning at $80,090 MSRP (Plus destination fee). This is the most robust mass-produced sedan in the world due in large part to its supercharged 6.2-Liter HEMI V8. The incredible horsepower is a hefty 80 more horsepower than the base Hellcat. The prized Hellcat Redeye engine is derived from the much-talked about Challenger SRT Demon. Opting for the SRT Hellcat Redeye in either the Charger or Challenger provides satisfaction that simply can not be overstated.

For those who want the SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody, owners receive its additional 3.5 inches in its wider wheels and tires. The added inches will help make the Charger turn better as the tires can grip on a track more so than the standard version. The 2021 model year brings in new 20-inch wheels for the Hellcat and All-Wheel-Drive models. As the chart above shows, folks searching for more cost-effective choices can go with either the SXT or GT trim, which start around the $29,000 price point. For those that are thinking of paying more than double that to opt for the higher trims, they have exceptional performance that starts with the engine. The 6.2-Liter turbocharged engine is unlike any Dodge has ever built and its value is so important for owners, especially those that want to take their SRT Hellcat Redeye onto a drag strip or racing track. 

Breakdown of the SRT Charger Hellcat Redeye

The price of the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat will be set at the same cost it was last year, $71,490 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The base model SRT Hellcat has a healthy output from its large V8 HEMI, but buyers can choose the Redeye kit if they want to. The price of the SRT Hellcat Redeye is $80,090 MSRP (Plus destination fee). That number, oddly enough, equals to around $100 per horsepower for Dodge’s most robust Charger model. The SRT Hellcat Redeye symbolizes the fastest production sedan in the industry with its mind-blowing top-end speed of 203 mph. The Dodge brand notes the quarter-mile time the SRT Hellcat Redeye is just 10.6 seconds! The 707-horsepower 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat, meanwhile, can go as quick as 196 mph and will complete a quarter-mile time in only 11.0 seconds. That’s the kind of speed built for a race track and now customers can take this street-legal vehicle nearly anywhere on the road today.

The new and improved 2021 Dodge Durango will be rolling out soon. While many are waiting to see its top-tier trim, the all-new SRT Hellcat with its 707-horsepower engine, we’re just as excited for all the changes that have gone on with the Durango. Dodge has made sure to provide customers with plenty of options including rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive for each trim. There are some new perks that are worth breaking down as we approach the fall of 2020 when the 2021 Durango is expected to debut for shoppers. For those looking to aim for a reasonably priced vehicle that offers all the thrills of Dodge engineering, but isn’t afraid of driving the fastest-three-row-SUV on the planet, side with the Durango this model year. 

Durango SXT, GT, and R/T Trim Breakdown

The base trim is the SXT RWD $33,260 MSRP (Plus destination fee), SXT AWD $35,860 MSRP (Plus destination fee), GT RWD $37,460 MSRP (Plus destination fee), GT AWD $40,060 MSRP (Plus destination fee). For the R/T RWD $46,800 MSRP (Plus destination fee) and R/T AWD $49,400 MSRP (Plus destination fee). There is also the R/T AWD Tow and Go trim that starts at $54,395 MSRP (Plus destination fee). There is a new rear hatch spoiler added to the Durango that comes standard for owners.

Breaking Down the Changes To the Durango

The higher trims run a bit more expensive but come with more features like the redesigned, driver-focused cabin that adds an 8.4-inch or larger 10.1-inch touchscreen. The remaining trims include the Citadel, which comes in RWD for $49,300 MSRP or AWD for $51,900 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The former highest-trim, the SRT, is now known as the SRT 392 (like how Dodge has it for its muscle car lineup) that begins at $64,490 MSRP (Plus destination fee) and its standard all-wheel-drive. The high-end 2021 Dodge Durango is the all-new SRT Hellcat that supplies standard all-wheel-drive and starts at $82,490 MSRP. 

Upgrades To Citadel and Higher Trims

Dodge has given a big boost to the Citadel trim that gains new leather seating and standard ventilation to the heating function, the larger 10.1-inch touchscreen with Uconnect 5, and TomTom navigation with new safety enhancements and driver assistance capabilities. An owner gains adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane driver assist and forward collision warning with active braking. Dodge also has brought a new option to the fold for customers, a Trailer-Tow Group IV option for $1,195 MSRP. The integrated trailer brake switch also comes with a heavy-duty engine oil cooler, integrated brake controller, plus the Class IV hitch receiver and rear-load leveling shocks. or more information on the all-new 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat, we’ve got a lot to share.

Dodge Brand Is Rebounding Its Muscle Car Sales Quickly

Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

Despite the longevity of the COVID-19 outbreak and its far-reaching grasp on every industry, it wasn’t going to last forever. Dodge has already begun to rebound and has seen demand skyrocket with greater sales in the past month or more. The Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger have increased tenfold in consumer sales with a number that will be reflected when the third-quarter results are released in about a month. According to Dodge, the one trim that has been the fastest-selling in the Scat Pack trim. In fact, the trim is so popular that it saw its inventory sold out this summer with no options for buyers searching for this trim for about a month. Dodge promised to restock this trim for both the Challenger and Charger and possibly add a larger order for the future. 

“Our number one seller right now is the Scat Pack, and we probably have 200 Scat Packs in the whole country, they’re gone…by the middle of July we should have stock built back up,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger vehicles.

What Helped Drive Dodge Sales

Dodge found new ideas to produce further sales by creating its Dodge Power Dollars campaign in 2019 and continuing the promotion in 2020. For back-to-back years, the promotion was a vital part of helping grow sales and helping customers save money in the process. For every horsepower in the vehicle a customer was going to purchase, they would save $10. For any customer opting for the famed Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, that would amount to $7,970 in savings, as the 6.2-Liter turbocharged engine has 797 horsepower. Sales have picked up and Dodge sold 500 million worth of horsepower in vehicles sold last year and intends to reach a number not far off by the end of the year. 

Powerful V8 Engine Anyone?

The goal of Dodge has been to extend new offers for customers so they can drive its latest lineup of V8 engines. From hitting super fast quarter-mile times to offering Widebody trims in both the Challenger and Charger muscle cars, Dodge is doing the most for its base. Since the 1960s, Dodge has produced the Charger. The Charger began as a concept vehicle designed back in the 1940s but became the vehicle that struck its iconic standing with what it has done in the late 1960s and the influence for the brand continues today. The 2020 Dodge Charger offers five trim levels, including the aforementioned SRT Hellcat Redeye. 

Regaining Tremendous Sales Numbers 

2020 started with higher sales figures over 2019 in January and February. The closing of many dealerships, if not all, for a certain amount of time in 2020 lowered the figure to just 7,875 new vehicles sold in April, but has more than doubled that number in the following two months. The expectation is to see that number climb to over 20,000 and grow as much as 30,000 a month before the end of 2020. Those are figures similar to what 2019 sales figures looked like.

Dodge Has Revealed A Shocking Detail About the All-New Durango SRT Hellcat Trim

Hellcat Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

Dodge energized its base when it first announced its intention to add the SRT Hellcat trim to the upcoming 2021 Dodge Durango. Many were shocked that the three-row SUV could even handle the turbocharged 6.2-Liter V8 HEMI powertrain. The 2020 Durango currently offers its highest-tier trim, the SRT. What made the SRT trim special was its providing owners the stout 6.4-Liter HEMI V8 that would hit 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. However, the addition of the SRT Hellcat famed engine means the horsepower will climb over 235 horsepower! The official numbers released have the Durango SRT Hellcat at 710 horsepower with 645 lb-ft of torque. The world’s most powerful SUV is also the fastest, but Dodge revealed more news about this upcoming beast of an SUV. 

Keep This In Mind, There’s A Limited Time

There’s just one catch that Dodge announced regarding the forthcoming 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat; it won’t be produced for very long. Exactly six months of production is all that is expected for the new trim and powertrain added to the already world’s fastest three-row SUV. Naturally, this may not be a surprise as Dodge has a tendency to end its fastest production models within a year or less. We were still mourning the end of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon run; until we learned all about the all-new 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. Dodge is building a line-up that is made for the drag racing scene, but owners can enjoy the remarkable performance on everyday roads and remove the word “boring” from any future driving trips, that’s for sure. 

Rush To Get the Durango SRT Hellcat Fast

Dodge has kept its fans on their toes and kept the speed and excitement of driving a Dodge vehicle intact. This is just a reminder for all those customers that there will be a limited amount of time to snatch up the upcoming 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat. This vehicle will be expected to start around $77,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee). For lovers of speed, this is a price that all SRT owners can relate to. The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is similar in price at $79,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The debut of the 2021 Dodge Durango is expected in the fall of 2020 and will offer wicked fast speeds of 0 to 60 mph in under four seconds!

The Most Impressive Dodge Challenger Debuts Soon

Super Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

Dodge is ready to offer a new champion of the muscle car segment. Dodge has produced a yearly successor since the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon debuted. The follow-up to the SRT Demon was the following year’s SRT Hellcat Redeye, which was under 800 horsepower. Dodge decided to bring back that over 800 horsepower with the new SRT Super Stock. Dodge had been named to the number one spot earlier this year with J.D. Power’s APEAL study, so Dodge is having a banner year. Dodge viewed the overwhelming response of Dodge owners for a new entry to live up to the SRT Demon, and this might be that vehicle.

The Prize of Dodge Muscle 

We all love a vehicle that makes an impression. The Dodge Challenger has that capacity in spades with the all-new 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. The new prize muscle car will make its debut in the fall of 2020. We can thank the Dodge engineering team for its caffeinated approach to horsepower at its 807 rating and 707 lb-ft of torque. Owners gain the famed 6.2-Liter V8 turbocharged engine. Regarding the new Muscle entry, an interview with Tim Kuniskis, the current Dodge president, added some revealing details. Dodge went to extreme lengths to create the newest champion of all production muscle cars.

Welcome the SRT Super Stock

While we won’t have the 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock till the fall, we know it’s the right mix of both the SRT Demon with the same brakes, wheels, plus its drag radicals to provide drivers with a vehicle ready to race on a drag-strip without any modifications required. The narrow-body (non-Widebody) is an option for customers if they want to opt for it. This move should bring a lower cost of about $6,000. Keep in mind, the SRT Super Stock isn’t for those who aren’t able to handle the massive power this muscle brings. As the new top-tier Challenger, the starting price is estimated to be about $79,000 MSRP. Slightly over the SRT Hellcat Redeye price of $78,295 MSRP, but less than the $80,000 MSRP price of the SRT Demon. These are the vehicles that are built for racing and set wildly quick times (under 10 seconds) during a quarter-mile race. 

“Nobody ever saw Super Stock coming. For the people who are into it, it’s significant. We didn’t want to lose our claim as having the quickest, fastest, most powerful muscle car in the industry. We went to our customers and we surveyed them on road courses, drag racing, just regular cruising, what kind of stuff were they interested in. So what we found out was, it was a 7-to-1-ratio of people that said they identified with drag racing over road course.” -Tim Kuniskis, Dodge President

Unlocking the Secret of What Customers Want

Dodge researched and did their part by asking the Dodge owner community to learn about what they want to see. Of course, Dodge has said they wouldn’t create another Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, but that didn’t mean owners wouldn’t gain a new beast. Customers were hoping to see an original attempt that will be able to offer a drag race-ready vehicle. In doing their research and due diligence, Dodge learned customers want a high-end type of vehicle that will also finish ahead of the competition. That’s how Dodge built the the new quickest and most powerful muscle car that was made into the production car it is today. Welcome to the reign of the 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. 

“We listen very, very carefully because these are the people who are going to buy these cars. If they tell us there’s something that they want, and it’s possible, we listen very, very closely to them. If I had to categorize it, I would say the Super Stock is nothing like the Demon, and it’s more like the Redeye, just re-tuned for the wheel and tire package. 80 percent Redeye and 20 percent Demon.” -Tim Kuniskis, Dodge President

Criminals Lookout! 2021 Dodge Pursuit Lineup Orders Start Next Month

Law Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

Dodge will update the Durango Pursuit to the 2021 model year. The refresh of the 2021 Dodge Durango will be a welcomed sight for customers, but the update is especially good news for the Pursuit team. The 2021 Dodge Durango includes the first-ever SRT Hellcat trim that offers its remarkable 710 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque. The Pursuit team also includes the Dodge Charger Pursuit and is made solely for law enforcement officers. While regular customers can’t drive these particular vehicles, we go over some of the differences that will be available for the 2021 Dodge Durango and Charger models for customers. 

More on the 2021 Dodge Durango Pursuit

The Durango Pursuit will be able to hold its own when called upon because it has got the strength and quickness needed to restrain crime. Mopar Insider has revealed that the 2021 Dodge Pursuit vehicles are slated for the R/T Tow N Go Package. This package includes the 5.7-Liter HEMI V8 engine and adds best-in-class maximum towing capacity at 8,700 pounds. The impressive top-end speed of 145 miles should be more than enough. Criminals would be foolish to even try to escape the police using the Pursuit models, including the Dodge Durango Pursuit that can go from 0-60 in as little as 4.4 seconds with a quick quarter-mile time of only 12.9 seconds. 

All-Wheel-Drive Option For 2021 Dodge Charger Pursuit

The upcoming 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat will carry an impressive 717-horsepower rating and receives a new top-speed of 203 mph. Customers can opt to own this vehicle later in 2020 while the 2021 Dodge Charger is going to see some changes of its own for the Pursuit package. The Pursuit package offers the base engine, the 3.6-Liter Pentastar engine, but that’s not all. The powertrain option for the more aggressive 5.7-Liter engine can be added. The 3.6-Liter engine comes with rear-wheel-drive, the option for all-wheel-drive is included. The Charger Pursuit contains driver and passenger doors with ballistic protection. 

New Dodge Vehicles; Built For the Bold

Today, the Dodge Charger Pursuit is the bestselling law enforcement sedan on the road. With these reinvigorated Pursuit models advancing, we’re anticipating Dodge to bolster its presence for law enforcement everywhere. All perps and criminals don’t stand a chance of getting away from the latest Dodge Pursuit vehicles. Any police force that is serious about safeguarding their officers would be wise to supplement these vehicles into their fleet. For the rest of us, while civilian customers can not order these special Pursuit vehicles, the new 2021 Dodge Durango and Charger models will come out later this year during the fall. The Dodge Pursuit vehicles will be ready to order by September 2020. Check with us to learn more about all Dodge vehicles, including the newest Dodge lineup ready at Miami Lakes Automall!

Dodge Earns Top Spot On J.D. Power’s 2020 APEAL Study

Super Stock Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge enthusiasts have gained yet another reason to take pride in their beloved Brand. JD Power has just announced recipients of its APEAL Study; Dodge led all other brands. The measurements are based on an automaker’s ability to provide customers with the ownership experience that is promised. For Dodge, the main reason owners opt for this brand is speed and high-performance engineering; which Dodge provides in spades. Allow us the pleasure of going over this latest study done by J.D. Power and why the Dodge brand stood out in 2020. 

Dodge Excels Over Rival Brands

Among all Mass-Market brands, Dodge had a leading score of 872. The average among the Mass Market segment is 838, so Dodge ended up quite ahead of the competition. The entire process of gathering responses took four months from February 2020 through May 2020 with 87,282 direct responses from owners of new 2020 model-year vehicles. Compared to the other brands, Dodge finished ahead of includes Ford (853, 19 points lower), Mazda (844, 29 points lower), Honda (842, 32 points lower), and Toyota (825, 47 points lower). This breakdown shows how Dodge is delivering to customers exactly what they are hoping for.

Other Brands Don’t Have the Same Grasp of What Their Brand Represents

While rival brands might struggle with an identity to present customers with, Dodge has only reinforced its image with some of the newest Dodge efforts that have come out in 2020. There is a lot of future Dodge products that are coming out to excite the fan base and keep customers looking forward to the Dodge brand’s latest efforts. Look no further than the 2021 Dodge Challenger that has its highest horsepower offering yet (807) in a new trim called the Super Stock

“Their owners do express a high degree of satisfaction with their vehicles. It’s largely driven by performance, styling, and the large infotainment systems in the vehicles. Customers that are delighted with a vehicle are much more likely to purchase a more expensive vehicle from the same brand next time than those that are less satisfied, who are more likely to switch brands, ” Dave Sargent, Vice president of automotive quality at J.D. Power

More Recognition For Dodge Vehicles

Currently, Dodge has provided customers with an affordable option for each vehicle they offer. More than just impressive, stylish muscle cars or the fastest three-row SUV in the Durango, Dodge allows customers to drive away with a fantastic deal for the amount of sheer strength and power offered across the Dodge lineup. In fact, Dodge finished atop J.D. Power’s Initial Quality Study earlier this month. Want to experience what the Dodge brand has to offer?

2021 Dodge Challenger Will Offer New Muscle With the 807 Horsepower Super Stock

Photo credit: Dodge

Among the fastest production vehicles in the industry, few are capable of hanging with the muscle car power offered to customers in the Dodge Challenger lineup. The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat first came out several years ago and the response of owners was pure enthusiasm for the muscle car. Dodge added more SRT Hellcat variants with the Charger and its coming to the Dodge Durango as well. However, there was a need for more speed. Dodge added the SRT Hellcat Redeye to up the ante with the 2019 Dodge Challenger model year. However, Dodge could not settle with offering the 797 horsepower SRT Hellcat Redeye; they had to push the envelope even further with the newest entry in the Dodge muscle car family.

Introducing the Super Stock

Dodge has now brought a new Challenger, known as the Super Stock. The Super Stock has an SRT Hellcat Redeye build but has pushed the engine up to 807 horsepower. The world of muscle cars will gain a new champion when the full-scale drag worthy Challenger debuts complete with its lightweight 18-inch wheels, fast-stopping Brembo brakes with four-piston calipers and 14.2-inch rotors up in front. The same set-up of driving modes is present in the SRT Hellcat Redeye. A vehicle that gains speed as fast as buckshot from a shotgun, the Super Stock catapults from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds. In a drag race, which is a quarter-mile length, the Super Stock hits 131 mph with a wicked fast time of 10.5 seconds. The focus of Dodge muscle cars has only been the high-performance abilities and speed offered, but no production vehicle carries as much speed for the price as the new Dodge Challenger trim. 

No Other Brand Can Compete With This Muscle

Think the competition can compete with the newest Dodge muscle entry? Nope. The 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock with its momentum and attitude puts rivals to shame off the line.  Even Ford’s declared 10.7-second quarter-mile time produced by the Shelby GT500 isn’t quick enough to better the new Dodge product. The Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock can contribute some of its power thanks to the parts that were built in the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, including the exact same Nitto drag radials and widebody kit. Dodge is preparing its fanbase for something exceptional and has produced yet again. Tim Kuniskis of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) acknowledged what customers relate to most regarding the new Super Stock, this is what he said. 

“What our customers want and the reason we went into the drag racing space is seven times the amount of customers ‘identify’ with drag racing, compared to road course racing … It doesn’t mean they’ve ever been to a drag strip in their life. And it’s not because they’ve even been in a fast car. It’s because they’ve all been at a stoplight, and all tried to race their buddy next to them. I want you to mistake a $30,000 Challenger for a $90,000 Redeye…you have a Challenger. You are part of this team,” Kuniskis, Head of FCA Passenger Cars.

Dodge Adds SRT Hellcat Redeye To Charger Model

Charger Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

Dodge strives to advance and push the limits of the world’s only four-door muscle car, introducing the new 797-horsepower 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye. This will be the most powerful sedan and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world. Dodge added a widebody exterior with united fender flares that add on 3.5 inches of body width, new 20-inch-by-11-inch Lightweight Carbon Black wheels, and a newly designed, functional performance hood. Both Charger SRT Hellcat models provide this four-door sedan an even more compelling appearance.

 “The magic of the Dodge Charger is that it delivers all the performance of a true American muscle car while also being able to deliver a family of four or five, day in and day out. The Charger is a big, comfortable, five-passenger sedan that can run the quarter-mile in the mid-10s, 0-60 in the mid 3s and reach a top speed of 203 mph, and be your daily driver,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. 

The Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye is 1.2 seconds faster than the Charger SRT Hellcat on a 2.1-mile road course, equivalent to about 7 car lengths after one lap. Dealer orders open for 2021 Dodge Charger models this fall, including the new SRT Hellcat Redeye. These new Dodge muscle cars will start production later in 2020 and deliveries are expected to start heading to dealerships by the beginning of 2021. 

 New 2021 Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye Carries Demon Parts

Everyday muscle fans and Dodge enthusiasts will love the SRT Hellcat Redeye, the first time ever built in a Charger. By adding greater power and better performance, the heart of the new 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye comes from the limited-production 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The supercharged 6.2-Liter HEMI® high-output V8 possesses 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft. of torque and is paired to a TorqueFlite 8HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission. Internal changes to the transmission in the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye include an upgraded torque converter. The Charger Redeye’s torque converter delivers an 18 percent increase in torque multiplication when compared with the standard Charger SRT Hellcat.

What Does the SRT Hellcat Redeye Offer Over the Hellcat?

 What will an owner gain with the standard Charger SRT Hellcat engine versus the new SRT Hellcat Redeye? The largest factory supercharger of any production car ever built. The engine size of 2.7-Liters versus 2.4-Liters with a heightened boost pressure of 14.5 psi versus 11.6 psi. Dodge included a raised rpm limit of 6,500 rpm over 6,200 rpm. Additional features include two dual-stage fuel pumps instead of one. Despite the rise of production, at full-throttle, the Charger maintains the same mpg. Owners of the Dodge Charger  SRT Hellcat Redeye will be able to appreciate the added perks without suffering a gas mileage drop off. For those who want to see a vehicle rundown that stars the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, check out the video produced by Dodge.

Dodge Finishes First In J.D. Power’s Initial Quality Study, FCA Finishes Fourth Overall

Charger Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

This week, J.D. Power has revealed its 2020 Initial Quality Study that helps buyers discover what other drivers have said about their new vehicles. Each year, J.D. Power, a name revered in the automotive industry as the business, releases a list that sums up their work on locating problems that have occurred in the first 90 days of vehicle ownership. This list helps educate drivers with data on potential problems vehicles have and is rated across 100 vehicles. A score is made and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has scored remarkably well.

Dodge Ties For First Place

J.D. Power’s IQS measurement comes up with a total score, where the better results are signified by earning a lower score. FCA’s grand total of 153; 13 less than the industry average and 10 less than its nearest competitor. Dodge, a staple of FCA, has tied for first place. This is the first time a domestic brand has finished first. FCA overall rose up seven spots from the 2019 IQS. As the Dodge brand, improved, so, too did Jeep and Ram.

“These results reflect the relentless, whatever-it-takes attitude of our team. Our complete focus is the customer and these outcomes reinforce that we are on-target. The team is going to be inspired and motivated and will continue to push forward,” said Mark Champine, Head of Quality, FCA – North America. 

Dodge Isn’t the Only Fiat Chrysler Brand That Stands Out

Among the brands that we have at Miami Lakes Automall that are a part of the FCA family is Jeep, Ram, Dodge, and Chrysler. Jeep climbed up six spots to finish in 11th place in the 2020 J.D. Power overall ranking for its IQS score. This is the highest rating for the Jeep brand since the IQS began back in 1968. FCA has overseen the growth of its brands, but perhaps no brand has done more with growth and volume than the Jeep and Ram brand. 

Ram finished with a third-place ranking. Ram jumped up significantly from its 21st ranking in 2019. Among the 75 FCA production plants in the Americas, Toluca Assembly Plant in Mexico won the Gold Award for manufacturing quality, while Belvidere Assembly Plant in Illinois, claimed the Bronze Award. FCA’s overall performance climbed five spots to a fourth-place finish among the 15 companies rated by J.D. Power. Thinking about trying out any of these aforementioned brands? We have plenty of choices to make any of our readers excited at Miami Lakes Automall. Shop in person or online with our help today.

Is It October Yet? 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Nears Debut

Durango Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

The 2021 Dodge Durango will be joining the SRT Hellcat family later in 2020. While the current Dodge Durango is plenty strong, they have gained a new fastest-trim with the introduction of the SRT Hellcat trim. The entire vehicle lineup is fast as well as offering plenty of space for passengers. Dodge and parent company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), have made the right call by adding the Dodge Durango to the Hellcat threshold. Dodge has started 2020 off on the right foot and looks to continue to rebound past the COVID-19 slowdown with new trim options that have never been produced before.

The Rarity of the SRT Hellcat

Today, the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger are the solitary Dodge vehicles that offer an SRT Hellcat trim. Customers will gain the remarkable 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 engine and all the perks of the SRT Hellcat trim. Exclusively badging, style, and strength that makes the Hellcat so awesome. Allow us to breakdown the expectations customers should have for the next 2021 Dodge Durango. The fastest reigning and available Dodge Durango right now is the SRT trim that extends the monstrous 6.4-Liter HEMI V8 engine that creates 475 horsepower and an impressive 470 lb-ft of torque rating. 

This new trim will also bring exclusively badging and style. Allow us to explain what customers have previously encountered with the Durango, what Dodge will offer, and how some fans couldn’t help but crave the premiere of the SRT Hellcat Durango. While we can’t say we’ve been able to see or test-drive the upcoming Hellcat, we have seen a spy shot that has gotten us hyped. October, the month FCA says the Durango SRT Hellcat will be ready, can’t come here soon enough. 

The Debut of the Hellcat 

The first-ever teaser picture of the 2021 Dodge Durango was an image of the classic Hellcat emblem that was on the front quarter panel of the unseen Durango exterior. Dodge had not created a Hellcat, but made an SRT trim several years back. Other Fiat Chrysler brands, like Jeep, have yet to see a Hellcat vehicle. While Jeep added the Trackhawk to the Jep Grand Cherokee, it’s not as fast as the SRT Hellcat Durango will be. The Trackhawk can travel from 0 to 60 in only four seconds. The reports of the Durango SRT Hellcat will hit a time under four seconds. The three-row Durango will contain a new SRT Hellcat motor will contain a positive-displacement twin-screw supercharger that will create up to over 700 horsepower at all four wheels for the SRT Hellcat trim. For those who can’t wait to drive a new Dodge vehicle, we have the newest Dodge Durango and all Dodge SRT Hellcat vehicles ready for our customers.

Which High-End Dodge Challenger Trim Should A Driver Choose?

SRT Miami Lakes Automall

The landscape of Dodge muscle cars runs deep and offers more choices than most would suspect. The 2020 Dodge Challenger offers a multitude of packages for customers to decide on. For those that want to spend extra money to get all the perks afforded with some of the higher trims, a smart choice would be the Scat Pack trim or Hellcat trim. What would be the major differences between the R/T Scat Pack and the SRT Hellcat? Allow us to share some news of the upcoming features and standard options when it comes to the 2020 Dodge Challenger.

Breaking Down the 2020 SRT Hellcat

The highest trim for the Challenger is found in the SRT Hellcat Redeye, however, this is a vehicle that while it remains the fastest production muscle car made by Dodge, few can handle its immense power. For those willing to consider the high-end SRT Hellcat Redeye, we recommend reading more about it. However, let’s get back to two vehicles that are closer in price and performance. The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat offers an impressive 6.2-Liter supercharged engine with an impressive 717 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. The power of the Challenger is felt by drivers and passengers alike. Not to mention, the high-end technology being added to the Challenger with the addition of the Uconnect 5 system

In-Depth Look Into the R/T Scat Pack

The 2020 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack has the best-in-class horsepower for any vehicle under $40,00. The Scat Pack offers high-octane premium performance that has built a following of Dodge muscle car enthusiasts around the world. Starting with its hunky HEMI V8 engine that produces 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque and offers a quarter-time of 11.70 seconds at a top speed of 115 mph. The price of the R/T Scat Pack starts at $39,995 MSRP and is available for the Widebody option. The R/T Scat Pack Widebody is considered another trim, just as the SRT Hellcat Widebody. For those that expect to take their Dodge muscle car for drag racing on a course, we can see the intrigue to add the Widebody version for either trim. The Widebody adds greater grip due to its wider tires, but we will focus on the non-Widebody entries for this article. Don’t forget, Dodge added the R/T Scat Pack as one of the options to gain the Daytona Special Edition earlier this year. 

Why Opt For A Challenger?

The best part of driving any Dodge Challenger is feeling the extremely fast jump the vehicle provides from 0-60 and how smooth the vehicle rides. Dodge has earned many drivers over the competition in recent years, surpassing the Chevrolet Camaro in 2019 thanks to its many perks, trim options, and excitement offered for each owner. We love the sound of a new Dodge Challenger driving by and we’re sure the sound of owning one will sound great to many of our readers. For more information, check with us at Miami Lakes Automall to get started with the easy process we begin to make this dream a reality!

Dodge Muscle Owners Are Youngest In Muscle Car Segment

2020 Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge has announced a new vehicle to celebrate the semi-centennial of the Challenger. The 50th Anniversary Edition Challenger will receive a new Commemorative Edition that can be ordered across three 2020 Challenger trims including the R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and the R/T Scat Pack Widebody. The rear-wheel-drive V6 GT model can also be added with the 50th Anniversary Edition. Let’s break down all the fun awaiting future owners of this special edition. 

Owners Will Have A Lot of Choices

What owners will gain with the commemorative car is quite similar to the 50th Anniversary Edition. Hand-painted Satin Black hood with black-wrapped roof and decklid, the Dodge Hellcat air intake and headlights, Satin Black fuel filler cap with Gunmetal-colored brake calipers on trim that have the red Brembo brakes. Gold School-colored wheels, lots of badging that carry “50” logos that are illuminated. Drivers will find the interior gains sepia stitching, heated and cooled performance seating and additional sepia thread on the Alcantara door bolsters that carry white gages with detailed yellow accents, berber floor mats, real carbon fiber trim pieces, and a bunch more badging. 

How Much Does the Commemorative Challenger Cost?

This special edition comes with real carbon fiber trim pieces with a look that would impress any fans of the 1970 Challenger, which can be found in the gauge cluster animation awaiting drivers.  Dodge claims this commemorative vehicle will be available in the fall. The price point is expected to add $4,995 for this optional package of a 2020 Dodge Challenger R/T, $5,495 to the price of the R/T Scat Pack, and $5,495 to the cost of the R/T Scat Pack Widebody. There are plenty of choices for customers to decide their options.

Tons of Colors To Choose From

Keep in mind, the 50th Anniversary Challenger muscle car is ready in optional body color choices including F8 Green, Frostbite, Go Mango, Hellraisin, Sinamon Stick, TorRed, or the all-new Gold Rush. The difference for the Commemorative Edition is the color palette includes Granite, Indigo Blue, Octane Red, Pitch Black, Triple Nickel, White Knuckle, and the new Smoke Show hue. That latter color replaces Destroyer Gray, and can be ordered on the Charger as well.

“I consider these cars to have a soul and they are timeless. We continue to refine these cars and offer new packages and engine upgrades, things that really resonate with our customers. That’s what led us,” Mark Trostle FCA Designer.

2021 Dodge Challenger To Gain Viper ACR Styling?

Viper Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: SRT Forums, Dodge

(Disclaimer: FCA has come out this month to say they won’t be producing this particular package or trim, however, we still think this is a rumor and take worth reading.)

While the famed Dodge Viper ACR saw its last run wrap up several years ago in 2017, Dodge has found ways to add the Viper in its current muscle line-up. Dodge might be adding parts that made up the Viper ACR into the Challenger, if the latest rumor from Allpar is believed. Dodge is working on producing a brand new ACR version of the Challenger. Speculation about production being slowed down was confirmed with the delay of many Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) vehicles, but the Dodge Challenger will still have a 2021 model year and the ACR version might be one of them. Allpar has said a “long-time source familiar with the project”, has aimed to give drivers even better track performance as the currently-discontinued Viper ACR. Dodge could even up the ante and give the Challenger ACR an even more powerful engine. The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye gave owners 797 horsepower, which is way above the amount offered in the final Viper ACR. 

What Would Be Found In the Challenger ACR?

For those who loved the Dodge Viper over its long and storied run, we can imagine a new Challenger ACR would have to be made as a package, more than a trim. The unique aerodynamics taken from the Viper design, the high-position wing and large splitter, are unique and would probably make this vehicle a rare find for owners. Allpar, if believed, has noted this Challenger ACR will gain large-scale Brembo brakes, a manually adjustable suspension system, and a goal weight of fewer than 4000 pounds. The muscle car will add carbon fiber in the car’s construction to allow the Challenger to be light. This approach, if taken by engineers, would make this the most lightweight Challenger ever. Even better than being light is creating the strongest Challenger. Will there be a 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 taken directly from the Hellcat Redeye? Would Dodge upgrade from the 392 cubic-inch HEMI V8 that is found in the Scat Pack Challenger? We’re speculating, but Dodge would have a lot of choices for the Challenger ACR.

Dodge Is Pumping Out Its Fastest Collection Yet

Dodge is looking to ramp up its horsepower in every vehicle, even the already fast Dodge Durango. The Hellcat trim will end up as an option for the Durango. So, with that knowledge, imagine the future for a hybrid of the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Viper. Though Dodge has not yet confirmed an ACR, we expect Dodge to go forward with a new package for the Challenger, as they have done plenty of times. 

As far as the Dodge Challenger, we can’t wait for the 2021 model to come out. The rumor with the ACR has also given news that Fiat Chrysler would alter factory settings so the suspension could be determined by the customer. The change is going to give owners a setting across a bunch of options including the height, caster, and camber at the track, as well as shock damping and rebound. Shocks may be brought over directly from the Viper design, along with the vehicle’s brake system. Should we see a future Challenger ACR created, this will be one of the fastest, track-ready vehicles on the market. Dodge always seems to produce a muscle car that takes over the drag-racing scene each year. 2019 had the aforementioned Hellcat Redeye, the year before that was the 2018 Challenger SRT Demon. Could the 2020 Challenger offer us the ACR? Time will tell soon enough as we’re already in June 2020.

“The Thing” Themed Charger Represents Iconic Dodge Recognizability

Thing Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: AutoEvolution

Dodge muscle cars have a style that remains iconic. The other well-distinguished aspect of Dodge muscle has been its strong performance under the hood. The Charger and Challenge rank among the most distinguished muscle cars in the history of automobiles. With such acclaim comes a following and fanbase where some take the production muscle cars and modify them to make a new final product. Every now and then, some come across that are a sight to be seen. The owner of a unique “The Thing” Dodge has made his 2017 Charger R/T Scat Pack carry the image of the famed Marvel character painted across the entirety of the hood. While the owner of this vehicle has certainly enjoyed the perks of its 392 HEMI engine, the design has gathered attention. 

What Is This “Thing”?

For those who do not know what “The Thing” is, it’s a fictional cartoon comic book character that has been around longer than the Dodge Charger actually. The first Charger debuted at a car show in 1964 and came out as a production vehicle two years later. The Thing was apart of The Fantastic Four #1 comic book, released in 1961. The Fantastic Four recently had a three movie run with films starring Chris Evans and Jessica Alba in 2004 and 2007 and most recently a reboot movie that came out in 2015. The Thing remained a larger than life, rock-hard character. Which sounds similar to the significance of the Dodge muscle brand with muscle cars like the one pictured above. Dodge has remained strong, powerful, and instantly recognizable. This owner has changed the image on his car multiple times, but one thing has stayed, its reliable power and quick getup.  

“A half-century later, Dodge still leads the pack with the most powerful muscle car powertrains in the industry, ranging from the Pentastar V6 engine to the fastest, most powerful muscle car, the 797-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.” -Dodge statement

Upcoming Dodge Vehicles Update

Regarding the latest news on both Dodge muscle cars, we’re fully expecting Dodge to have the 2021 model year come out about two months delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This wasn’t the only Fiat Chrysler brand that saw production pushed back. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk was set to debut around the same time as the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat. For those who are seeking a chance to get their hands on the current 2020 Dodge vehicles, we can help out. For those waiting on the 2021 model years, they may have to wait till late summer or beyond for a date on which the next line-up change will happen for the Charger, Challenger, Durango and other vehicles. For now, we’re ready to help our customers into our current line-up of fresh Dodge muscle cars.

Looking Into the Dodge Hellcat Widebody and Scat Pack Trims

The landscape of muscle cars has few options that can compete on a race track better than a Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger. A performance muscle car with a design that is instantly recognizable, fantastic especially in its Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat incarnations. A new Hellcat Widebody was added to the Charger and has perks that shine for owners, enthusiasts, and those looking to jump-start some excitement in both their garage and on the road. Let us look at the Widebody and Scat Pack trims and various packages that make these vehicles stand out.

Dodge Widebody Rules

New for Dodge is the addition of the Widebody to every single Dodge Charger Hellcat made. Dodge has done its part to provide the Widebody trims with a stellar suspension upgrade. The muscle cars by Dodge can go quite fast in a straight line, but moves on corners with far more confidence than ever before thanks to its wider tires and frame built to grip and maneuver through the air more efficiently. Thanks to those massive 20-inch wheels that are wrapped with 305/35R-20 Pirelli tires; the Scat Pack carries the same tires. The rear wheels on the Scat Pack and Hellcat Widebody both hit the same measurement at 11 inches in width. The previous Hellcat offered 9.5-inch-wide rear wheels previously. The new Hellcat Widebody exterior design was changed to offer more intense front and rear fascias, reshaped rocker-panel extensions as well as a new look rear spoiler. 

“My main goal was to make the cars look badass. It was my job to give these cars attitude. I think they look freakin’ pissed off. Next to the big Dodge, a BMW M5 looks relatively meek,” said Mark Trostle, FCA’s Head of Performance, Passenger, and Utility Vehicle Design.

Comparing the Scat Pack to Hellcat

The difference in the Scat Pack, which is offered for both the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger for the 2020 model year, is the Hellcat Widebody delivers far superior horsepower. The Scat Pack offers 485 horsepower in the R/T Scat Pack trim, versus 707 horsepower with the SRT Hellcat Widebody. Few vehicles will have an engine found in the Scat Pack, a powerful 6.4-Liter V8. This engine is amazing and yet still overshadowed by a powertrain even more robust and entertaining. Drivers who opt for the Scat Pack Widebody can experience going from 0-60 in just 4.3 seconds. Owners of the Hellcat Widebody will find a supercharged 6.2-Liter Hemi V8, posting a remarkable 3.6 seconds for the same 0-60 mph time. 

The Widebody also throws some technology to allow owners to have a better drive when putting the pedal to the metal. Adaptive shock absorbers, larger sway bars and significantly stiffer springs give the Charger Widebody models the added poise an owner should feel when driving a muscle car at moderate to high speeds. Keep in mind, the steering in both versions of the Charger is solid for any driver to enjoy. Dodge went to tremendous lengths to ensure both of these trims offer minimal cabin noise despite having tremendous power. Looking to drive some new high-performance machinery?

Hellcat Dodge Durango Looks To Be In the Works

Durango Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

2020 has brought some good news, despite the many challenges of this year, Dodge has revealed a new Dodge SRT Hellcat (Street Racing Technology) nameplate. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), the parent company of Dodge, has named the Dodge Durango to the SRT family, but now they will make a new SRT Hellcat trim. Coming to the 2021 Dodge Durango, will we see a 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 engine? The indication is that’s going in the upcoming Durango. The current fastest Dodge Durango is the SRT that provides a 6.4-Liter HEMI V8 powertrain that provides 475 horsepower to go with a 470 lb-ft of torque rating. While very impressive, FCA and Dodge are all about pushing the limits.

Does the Future Have A New Hellcat Trim For the Durango?

The future of Dodge vehicles is truly an intriguing topic. SUVs have earned a greater reputation for offering solid mpg ratings more so today than a decade ago. Earlier this year, a report from Mopar Insiders revealed a mild-hybrid version of the soon-to-be-made 2021 Dodge Durango. According to sources from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), the expectation will be to include the Pentastar 3.6-Liter with eTorque engine as the standard powertrain that provides drivers with 293 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque in SXT trim. That much is confirmed, but we know there is a chance to surprise and delight with a new powertrain. What else does Dodge have planned for the Durango going forward? Maybe another Dodge Viper run

Original of the Durango SRT Hellcat

Dodge first put together a Hellcat Durango as a part of their law enforcement-only model, the Dodge 2019 Durango Pursuit. The police were able to gain the strength of a 797-horsepower Hellcat Redeye engine. A report from Road & Track remarked they saw firsthand a Hellcat badge on a Durango in a now-removed trailer for the latest “Fast & Furious” film. Then, Mopar Insiders added they predict the Durango SRT Hellcat is going to happen, but most likely with the first Hellcat engine that includes a powerful 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque for owners. This may be a special-edition Durango, but time will tell for the specifics. For now, those who are hoping to drive the highest-level trim on the current Dodge Durango SUV, we’re able to help others with shopping online right now at Miami Lakes Automall.

Dodge Adds Daytona Special Edition To Charger R/T and Scat Pack Trim

Daytona Miami Lakes Automall

Every now and then there is a unique special edition package available for a Dodge muscle car. This one might be our favorite as its sleek design was so popular, Dodge decided to continue its streak to more Charger trims. The Daytona Edition Package will be ready to join the standard 2020 Dodge Charger R/T and Scat Pack trims. Since the 50th Anniversary happened last year with a new Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition, Dodge has heard their fans. This surge of calls for more than the 501 vehicles that were made has prompted a large production. The conic redesign from the 1969 classic Dodge Charger Daytona Edition gives drivers unique badging inside and out with premium quality features for owners to love. Let’s break down the major upgrades drivers can expect when stepping into the Daytona Special Edition.

The Joys of the Daytona Edition Charger

A beautiful design is obvious for any owner of the 2020 Dodge Charger. However, the Daytona Special Edition takes this sedan muscle car that already special at base trim and adds measures to increase its appeal. Built with new features, the drivers of this special edition are granted a Mopar cold air intake under the hood, a new satin black Daytona graphic that goes across the rear decklid and fenders. Interior upgrades include power driver and passenger seating made with rich Nappa leather and Alcantara etched with the Daytona logo. Further along, a premium-stitched dash panel with gloss black instrument cluster rings, a power tilt and telescoping steering wheel are welcomed features that only add to the prestige of this special edition. 

Additional Enhanced Features 

It wouldn’t be a special edition without some new exterior features. The Daytona Special Edition adds upper and lower LED lighting in the front of the cabin also has illuminated rear cupholders. The power driver’s seat also adds memory functions for the driver’s seat, radio, and outside mirrors, plus black-edge premium floor matting. Each Charger will gain upgrades to the side mirrors that will automatically adjust downward if the driver puts the transmission in reverse. An automatic-dimming driver’s side mirror is also included. The Charger R/T includes 20 x 9-inch Lights Out painted wheels, a heated steering wheel and security alarm. 

There is a slight difference with the Charger Scat Pack driving on 20 x 9.5-inch forged and painted aluminum wheels. There are also  more satin black decals on the roof and the hood on top of a Daytona badge on the grille. The mirrors for the Scat Pack are more luxurious than on the R/T, not just powered and heated mirrors but they can fold-in as well. There are a couple added safety features found in the Scat Pack, including blind-spot warning. Owners of the Scat Pack receive a Daytona badge on the instrument panel that looks sharp with its Carbonite accents throughout the interior. We don’t think an owner can go wrong with either option!

Get Into the Beautiful Daytona Special Edition

The 2020 Daytona Edition Package will be available in any of the 12-strong color palettes. Several new color options are available for the 2020 Charger including Frostbite, Hellraisin, and Sinamon Stick. The 2020 Charger R/T Daytona begins at $41,385 (Destination fee included), the 2020 Charger Scat Pack Daytona starts at $44,985 (Destination fee included). Both are ready for purchase later during the second quarter of 2020. Hoping to drive a new Dodge muscle car?

The Iconic Run of the Dodge Viper

Photo credit: ThomasClassics

The Dodge Viper was discontinued back in 2017, around now is when rumors would persist about the next generation set to come out next year or maybe in 2022. A recent story involving MotorTrend Car of the Year judges Tom Gale and Chris Teodore was published. Both of these men were previously employees of FCA when the launch of the original Viper happened in the 1980s. In fact, Gale was the Vice President of Design for the Viper. They have more experience in regards to how the Viper was first made and what it would take to see another run of the world-famous Viper. Let’s take a deep dive into the interesting history and future of the Dodge Viper!

The Beginning of the Dodge Viper

The debut of the Dodge Viper was in 1992, simply known as the RT/10 and in January 1992 the Viper was off and running for the public. Rear-drive roadster with an impressive 8.0-Liter V10 engine with 400 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. Many cars on the road today don’t offer that kind of engineering and impressive strength. This was just the first Viper that debuted nearly thirty years ago. It’s six-speed manual transmission came as a coupe with no other modifications and wouldn’t offer any impressive infotainment as found in later generations. From its first world appearance at the 1989 Detroit Auto Show, the fans flocked to this vehicle. By 1992, the world was ready for the Viper and it beat the Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 quickly becoming a much sought after car.

“We really want a V10 car because we want something that had a heroic proportion. We wanted something that was unique—different. I just wouldn’t want something that was in the image of what somebody else did,” Gale said.

Dodge Viper GTS Come Next

Where could Dodge go but continue their progress for the next-generation Viper, which first debuted at the 1993 Los Angeles Auto Show. Known as the GTS, this was the more powerful, better car overall. With enhanced safety and better performance and amenities, owners flocked to get this next-gen Viper. New features included power windows, Nomex-wrapped side-exit exhaust pipes to the rear, increased horsepower up to 450 horsepower and 490 lb-ft of torque. The Viper was also lighter, yet strengthened by a stiffer chassis and more liberal usage of aluminum in the car’s suspension. The vehicle became available in 1996 and was the kind of car on posters hanging on walls of kids and racing enthusiasts. 

“Bigger-and badder-than life. Few legends truly live up to their press. The Dodge Viper GTS, on the other hand, exceeds the hyperbole that engulfs it,” we wrote in May of 1997. 

Third and Fourth Generation Dodge Viper Models 

Like an action-movie franchise with sequels that kept getting a larger budget, the Viper continued to debut a new version every so often and improved upon what made it so special to begin with. The third-generation Dodge Viper arrived at the 2000 Detroit Auto Show as the GTS-R concept. Stronger and more luxurious than the previous two Viper models. The roadster-only 2003 Dodge Viper SRT-10 captured the essence of both the concept and the original Viper RT/10. The powertrain included a V10 that supplied 500 horsepower and 525 lb-ft of torque paired with a six-speed manual transmission and wider rear rubber.

By the time the 2008 Viper SRT-10 coupe and convertible came out, they gave owners a new  8.4-liter V10 that hit the 600 horsepower mark with even more torque at 560 lb-ft and a new limited-slip differential. Production ended by 2010, a short run for Dodge and its powerful Viper. So, with a short period away from the spotlight, yet another Viper came out. 

Fifth and Final Dodge Viper

The Dodge Viper SRT (Street Racing Technology) showed up in 2013, then-SRT chief and legendary designer Ralph Gilles added this quote about the vehicle upon its debut, “We had the privilege to design the Viper—not the right.”  The next-gen Viper equipped a 8.4-Liter V10 with 640 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque, with its standard six-speed manual transmission. This new Viper failed to surpass the Corvette this time around. Sales for the fifth-generation Viper were never particularly strong to begin with, and that fact, coupled with tightening safety restrictions spelled the end of the Viper in 2017. After a few limited-edition models, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Connor Assembly Plant in Detroit closed the door on the Dodge Viper production run for good.

What Comes Next For the Viper?

So, is there a chance for another run? A six-generation Dodge Viper? Another sequel to the always compelling Dodge icon? We will have to wait and see. Dodge has seen its brand become entrenched in its muscle car vehicles that returned to prominence in the mid-2000s thanks to the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger. Both of those vehicles are still enjoying a long-term successful run with both vehicles still using the same platform they debuted with. That kind of success has not made Dodge think about the Viper, but for two of the men responsible for creating one of the Dodge brand’s most iconic vehicles, they are proud of their work and five-generation run of a car they helped create, the iconic Dodge Viper.

Dodge Adding New Wheel Design Options For 2020 Muscle Car Line-up

Redeye Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: AutoNXT

Dodge is a company that never stops moving. Just like the famed muscle cars that aim to move faster than any other production vehicle on the road, Dodge has made moves to still finish with good numbers despite the Coronavirus hit. For the second quarter in 2020, Dodge has new plans to help keep the positive numbers going. Dodge will change the finish of the wheels across its premium Dodge muscle cars. All 2020 Dodge SRT muscle cars will have a new option; Devils Rim aluminum wheel design in Brass Monkey finish. This finish will apply to both the Challenger and Charger models. Mopar Insiders has revealed the updated option is available as soon as Dodge begins production again. The backlog of Dodge muscle cars is a result of the Coronavirus hold on workers in factories, so production is off limits. That doesn’t mean Miami Lakes Automall has run out of volume of Dodge inventory, though! We remain committed to serving our community and helping others with their vehicle needs, from servicing to selling, and continue with appraisals online, as well as leasing and purchasing any of our vehicles.

Updates To Dodge SRT Hellcat Options

Dodge has provided the largest changes with new trim options and special packages since debuting the latest generation Dodge Charger and Challenger models. The latest entry will be the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, the first time this vehicle debuts for the Charger. The Challenger has had the Redeye model since 2018. However, minor changes have come. The latest example is changing the standard fit on the Dodge Charger and Challenger to include a 20-inch Low Gloss Black Performance wheel. Customers can choose options that add a 20-inch Machined with Granite Pocket wheel or a 20-inch Matte Vapor SRT aluminum wheel. There are different choices for the widebody trims, including a standard fit of 20-inch Carbon Black Aluminum wheels, or the choice of a 20-inch Warp Speed Granite wheel. The Warp Speed has the same design as the Matte Vapor except with a tad different finish. The 20-inch Brass Monkeys is the second option on widebody trims of the Charger Hellcat and Hellcat Redeye. The Brass Monkey is making a comeback in place of the 20-inch Matte Vapor SRT Aluminum rim and will be available on the non-widebody trims. 

Dodge Updates Ongoing

For any customer using the Dodge configurator, note the online tool does not include the Brass Monkey options for the base trim Dodge Challenger and the Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody models. Mopar Insider has said they will eventually gain the option soon for customers to select. The wider versions of the Challenger Hellcat bolt on a set of 20-inch wheels that reach 11 inches wide. The base trim Dodge muscle cars will add the Brass Monkey rims, set at 20 x 9.5 inches. The 2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat comes in only two widebody versions, which both fit the 20×11-inch Brass Monkey wheels, but the options are not listed on the Dodge configurator currently. This leaves owners with the Carbon Black Aluminum and Warp Speed Granite wheels. The optional wheels on the Challenger all cost $1,095 MSRP, the Charger’s upgrades cost $1,295 MSRP. Production for the Dodge muscle car wheels will begin again in Brampton, Ontario and Dodge will offer all-wheel choices and as well as new exterior badges with a new Black and Dark Bronze finish upon reopening. Curious to see what it feels like to drive a new Dodge vehicle?

Dodge Still Sees Strong Performance Numbers In First-Quarter of 2020

Charger Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: FCA

The automotive industry is feeling the effects of a prolonged halt to the economy, as reflected in the first quarter of the results of 2020 that were just released. However, despite the closing of nearly every dealership in the traditional sense, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) saw growth with the Dodge Durango. The Dodge Durango grew 5% in the first quarter of 2020. With 17,805 units sold, the Durango was a popular choice for buyers nationwide. Few vehicles in any brand can report recording growth with the month of March showing slow sales growth due to COVID-19 impacting businesses and customers alike. When looking at the numbers, it’s impressive to note how Dodge still generated business and found customers looking for new vehicles. 

Results of the First Quarter of 2020 For Dodge

FCA joined General Motors and Ford with announcing their success via quarterly sales reports. Up until the third quarter of 2019, FCA had released monthly sales. We’re sure the sales for April will be much lower, but there is hope for certain vehicles to prevail over the summer when dealerships around the country are expected to open fully. Dodge is one of the bright spots despite the slowdown. In fact, had March not seen slower traffic amid the rise of the Coronavirus outbreak, the Dodge Challenger and Charger models might have seen a higher sales total in the first quarter of 2020, ahead of the same quarter in 2019. Even with the shutdown, the Charger sold 18,628 vehicles and the Challenger moved 12,138 vehicles. The decrease was a mere 10% and few would believe Dodge wouldn’t have made up that difference with another three weeks of sales. That amount lost is equivalent to a quarter of the sales Dodge would have had. 

The Dodge Grand Caravan is set to end its run in May 2020, so its lower than expected sales numbers brought down the Dodge brand’s overall sales numbers. We still believe the Dodge Grand Caravan is a solid option as it has been a staple of the Dodge lineup for over 30 years. We’re proud to offer a wide range of different Dodge vehicles, including nearly all the muscle cars and trims offered. 

Dodge Muscle Cars Still Shine 

We can show off all the reasons why Dodge muscle cars are still going strong this many years into their run. With the next update still expected to arrive in the next few years, we can bet Dodge will be just fine and its popularity will continue to rise. Curious to see what the next generation of Dodge muscle cars will look like? So are we! Who doesn’t love the aggressive styling and high-performance nature of the Dodge brand?

1970 Dodge Charger R/T Turned Into New Lego Technic

 

Lego Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: CNET

Few movies ever become successful enough to come up with a sequel, but one can’t recall any other series to spawn over nine-films plus a spin-off film except for Star Wars. This is the case with the Fast and the Furious movie franchise. Now Lego has produced a 1:13 scale replica of the famed 1970 Dodge Charger R/T from the series. This is the muscle car owned by the main character in the first half of the Fast and Furious series, Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto. The sleek, polished black 1970 Dodge Charger R/T is the latest Lego Technic kit to join the new Lego “Technic” line. The vehicle is a memorable cast-member in some respects to the Fast and the Furious film. A memorable ’70 Charger R/T from the first film of the long-running franchise. 

Relevance of the Dodge Charger

The black muscle car that went head-to-head with an orange Toyota Supra, the 1970 Charger R/T, stands out for many reasons. Remember, the 2020 Dodge Charger is still available in its current form. As owners of any muscle car can tell you, owning one is one of the most memorable and happiest feelings a driver can experience. The popularity of the Fast and the Furious franchise is not stuck on just a single vehicle, but no other vehicle stands out as a way of bringing to mind the origin of the “Fast” story. Drag racing and seeing who could win, whether by an inch or a mile, winning is winning” as Toretto famously said. We know all about winning with the fresh, new line-up of Dodge Charger and Challenger muscle cars waiting for our customers.

Breaking Down the Lego Technic 1970 Charger

Fans of Lego Technic and Fast and the Furious are sure to love this replica. It’s a 1:13 scale, 1,077-piece kit that includes a replica V8 engine with actually moving pistons. The kit also provides a wheelie bar and the well-known NOS tanks that are placed in the trunk. Even more hilarious is the toy fire extinguisher is kept inside of the cabin. This replica is fun to build and show off. After being assembled, the product is an accurate depiction of the old-school Charger. 

Even though the Dodge Charger vehicles of the 1970s were very popular, the Dodge brand is enjoying its greatest run currently with surging success. Lego Technic choose the right vehicle at the right time and did a solid job of bringing out the Charger design. In regards to the Dodge Lego Technic, the final product looks fantastic. The details can be spotted even all over including the iconic headlights and taillights. Any person who loves the Fast and Furious franchise will appreciate this new Lego product. 

Fast and the Furious Charger Still Popular

The Fast and the Furious franchise is still gaining fans. Fans of the film, especially those with young kids, definitely would love recreating the old-school Charger R/T provided with this Lego kit that has begun taking offers and is expected to start its sale date on April 27, 2020. The next Fast and the Furious is set for a pushed back release date, however. The next movie, Fast and Furious 9, saw its original date of May 22, 2020 pushed back to next year. The ninth installment will come to theaters in April 2021. Our readers won’t have to wait that long to drive new Dodge Muscle cars. Curious to get started in that process?

What the Future Dodge Muscle Car Designs Might Look Like

Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Ralph Gilles

Speculation has run rampant for years regarding what changes Dodge will make for its muscle car line-up. The Dodge Charger has not altered its design since being brought back in 2006. The same can be said for the Dodge Challenger, revived back in 2008. Dodge has found greater success with these muscle cars in 2019 than any previous year. So, why change the design if these vehicles are still selling well? Of course, all vehicles are due for an upgrade and in order to make this possible, changes must occur. The world-famous Dodge muscle coupe and sedan models are way overdue for a complete redesign. A new sketch that highlights what could happen to the look and shape of these Dodge muscle cars in the future was posted by none other than FCA design chief Ralph Gilles on social media. Gilles added that his futuristic orange body-colored design has an “experimental design of a Dodge of the future”. 

Why Won’t This Image Stand As the Future Design?

While the Gilles rendering was not seen as the official future design will look different, it is impossible to know the exact future that Dodge would be going for. One thing that plenty of Dodge enthusiasts caught upon looking at the image is the addition of the yellow spiller guard. This was seen as a humorous addition by Gilles. “We had a really good laugh about it”, he wrote in his Instagram post. Gilles reiterated he does not unveil future Dodge products on social media, but has added about the on-going controversy of owners of the Dodge muscle cars who keep the notorious splitter guards on. The future Dodge Charger and Challenger muscle cars will in fact have the color pink replacing the part that is yellow on the splitter guard. The main reason owners should not keep the splitter guard on their vehicle is due to the paint that can be ruined the longer the guard stays on the vehicle. For any readers that currently still have the splitter guard, we recommend they remove it.

This Design Looks Impressive, But Is It Realistic?

The 2023 model year will showcase the new designs for both Dodge muscle cars. A futuristic design is to be expected as the vehicle will not be changing any time soon after the design is finalized. The job shown by Gilles is a wide, long muscle car with seemingly low ride height. Keep in mind, the mid-2000s Dodge muscle cars were not very futuristic upon their debut. Designers keep a strong resemblance of the Dodge muscle car design from the 1970s with a more bold design added. We can expect the upcoming Dodge Charger and Challenger final products to cater to the future and have their own bold appearance. In just a few short years, the landscape of the Dodge Challenger and Charger will look different, but expect just as much horsepower.

Dodge Is Ready To Produce Faster Vehicles

The most recent years have produced some of the fastest Dodge muscle cars yet. No other vehicle had more horsepower than the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon or the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Dodge is selling more muscle cars in recent years than ever before. Our readers are free to debate about how the future Dodge muscle cars will look like in the next generation, just talk to us on social media about it. We’re curious to know what our readers hope to see happen. Could there possibly be another Dodge muscle car to join the Dodge Challenger and Charger?

Is Dodge Adding A Hellcat RedeyeTrim To Charger?

Charger Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge and parent company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) have allowed the Dodge Charger to catch up to its sedan cousin, the Challenger, with its own Hellcat Widebody trim finally being offered last year. This came two years after its official debut for the Challenger. Now Dodge will be doing the same for its fastest production vehicle in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, but this time it will be added to the Charger lineup. New spy shots have shown Dodge has gone to great lengths to cover up it’s newest muscle car. What do the latest photos tell us? Let’s get into the reasonable takes as to why Dodge is taking its time to debut the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye.

Dodge Keeping the Redeye Charger Secret

Reports have surfaced that Dodge would only make the Charger SRT hellcat redeye if they could contain the same 797-horsepower fitted within the Challenger. Now, through the use of a new powertrain option, a 2.7-Liter supercharged engine, the Charger can finally offer the same perks the Challenger has offered customers in the SRT Hellcat Redeye. The spy shots show that Dodge has covered up the hood of the vehicle. The images give the impression that the Charger has a taller or raised hood, further evidence of hiding this larger powertrain to replace the 6.2-Liter V8 engine. Why does the test-vehicle hide the hood? 

Spy Test Photos Link Redeye With Charger

The SRT Hellcat Redeye muscle car features a signature twin-snorkel hood that allows for greater air intake to maximize horsepower and speed. This is also thanks to a dual-stage fuel pump setup. Dodge knows in order to produce the Hellcat Redeye for the Charger, it must have this design to enhance its powertrain. Dodge would only produce the Charger with a Redeye trim possibility with similar speed measurements as well. The Redeye is expected to hit a 0 to 60 mark in under four seconds for the Charger version, as the Challenger met this mark with a 3.7 second time. The Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye offered a remarkable 11.6 second quarter-mile time and we’re certain the Charger Redeye version will match or exceed this time. For those who are seeking a chance to get their hands on the upcoming 2021 Dodge Charger, they may have to wait till summer or beyond. For now, we’re ready to help our customers into our current line-up of fresh Dodge muscle cars.

Dodge Hornet May Return To Add Variety To Dodge Line-up

Hornet Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge may introduce a throwback nameplate in an upcoming vehicle due out later this decade. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has filed for trademarks of the “Dodge Hornet” and “Hornet”. When our readers think of the Dodge brand, we’re sure they will come up with the Dodge Charger or Challenger. Dodge enthusiasts are not only fans of the muscle cars in the line-up but have love for the Dodge Durango, which also offers an SRT trim. The newest Dodge vehicle on the horizon could possibly be the Dodge Hornet. Once a concept vehicle for Dodge fifteen years ago, reports have surfaced with these new trademark requests for the Hornet.

Future of the Dodge Line-up

By June 2020, the Dodge brand will solely have four vehicles once the Dodge Grand Caravan ends its thirty-five-year run; the Dodge Challenger,  Charger, Durango, and Journey. The Durango and Journey are both SUVs, but there is room for various segments for Dodge to go with. The United States Patent and Trademark Office is responsible for granting the trademark to the Hornet name. We’ll know before long what Dodge plans to do, but if the vehicle is anything like the first Dodge Hornet, Dodge will be producing a vehicle that looks very similar to the boxy Scion xB SUV. 

More On the Dodge Hornet

Among the many concepts that have come and gone, there are few that look like the Dodge Hornet. The Dodge Hornet concept was created back in 2006 and expected to be ready a decade ago in 2010. The 5-door mini multi-purpose vehicle (MPV). Built with a 1.6-Liter supercharged 4-cylinder Tritec engine that delivered 170 horsepower, the Hornet didn’t have the kind of horsepower that fit like a Dodge vehicle. By 2011, after Fiat and Dodge were merged, the concept was turned into a subcompact vehicle that would still delight today as the vehicle was pronounced to have 40 mpg, which is fantastic gas mileage. However, the vehicle that eventually came out as the Dodge Dart. Now Dodge is intending on delivering the Dodge Hornet after all. 

What Else To Expect From Dodge?

We believe there’s a chance the Hornet could end up as a compact crossover or SUV, as sales in those segments are more popular than ever in 2020.  With the Dodge Grand Caravan set to end, FCA can produce a vehicle like the Hornet in the Windsor factory, the same plant where the Dodge Grand Caravan was built. Some stories have noted the Dodge Hornet as a future PSA Groupe vehicle. The merge of FCA and PSA Groupe has expanded the portfolio for both companies, but changes have not been seen yet to the catalog currently being marketed. The word on the street is usually hit-or-miss, but filings like these are interesting to note. Thinking about driving a new Dodge vehicle?

The End of An Era: Dodge To End Grand Caravan Minivan

Grand Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

The writing is on the wall for the Dodge Grand Caravan as Dodge and parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has announced the 2020 Grand Caravan will be the last one in the 36-year history of the vehicle. That said, the 2020 final version of the popular minivan is still a beast of a minivan that packs the solid 3.6-Liter Pentastar engine, 283 horsepower, helpful fold-flat second and third-row seating, and is offered at a low price of just $28,785 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The Blacktop Appearance package is available for both the SE Plus and SXT trims. The final Dodge Grand Caravan will be in May 2020. Let us share all the details about Dodge and their plans for customers going forward within the minivan segment, plus the perks of owning the 2020 Grand Caravan.

What Drivers Gain With the 2020 Grand Caravan

Dodge is sending off the Dodge Grand Caravan with the same features that made the vehicle as popular as ever. While even the base trim offers solid features, additional features include automatic headlamps, Bluetooth connectivity and the Stow N’ Go seating that has made the Dodge Grand Caravan a staple in the minivan segment. In fact, last year the Dodge Grand Caravan sold more than any other minivan in the market. So why is Dodge removing the vehicle? The Dodge brand has plans to focus on its other vehicles while parent company FCA is going to offer the Chrysler Voyager as the replacement for the Grand Caravan. The Chrysler brand also has the Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid as minivan options. Soccer moms and dads rejoice! 

More Perks of the Dodge Grand Caravan

The new 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan is a very strong minivan and offers customers a smooth ride. The EPA rating is a combined 25 mpg rating. The four-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is a welcomed rating and offers seven standard airbags with standard traction and stability control. Among the landscape of minivans available for customers, few are more capable than the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan. We welcome our customers to come test-drive and experience the power and engineering afford to drivers first-hand with the Dodge Grand Caravan. More than spacious than most of the rivals on the road today, we’re certain our customers will enjoy owning the latest and last Dodge Grand Caravan.

The Dodge Power Dollars promotion is officially underway! Customers in the United States can save big when they purchase any 2020 Dodge Charger or 2020 Dodge Challenger model. Here is how Power Dollars savings work. Buyers receive $10 off for each horsepower in the form of a cash allowance. Therefore, the more horsepower in the buyer’s vehicle, the greater the cash allowance. This can be a great way to save thousands of dollars and allow customers to end up in a better muscle car option as a result. For example, those who want to opt for the best Challenger, the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye will receive an incredible $7,970 in cash allowance. Allow us to share more about the incredible performance the Dodge muscle car has done in both sales and what Dodge offers now in 2020.

Building On Prior Success

Dodge and parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) brought back the Dodge Power Dollars campaign after witnessing phenomenal sales in the second half of 2019. In fact, a record number of both Charger and Challenger models were sold to the tune of 84,216 vehicles. Dodge added over 33 million horsepower over to customers and Dodge muscle car lovers in the second half of 2019 alone. The addition of the new Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody helped Dodge move the highest amount of Charger muscle cars since 2013 with 96,935 vehicles sold. The Dodge Challenger held its own with over 60,000 Charger models sold in 2019, which was more than double than the year the Challenger came out. 

Dodge Keeps Growing In Popularity

Dodge and the Street Racing Technology vehicles they have, also known as SRT, are more popular than ever. Over 11 million followers across the various social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) have helped share and bring attention to the latest Dodge muscle cars and the entire SRT lineup. In 2020, Dodge has made these vehicles even more impressive. Fan engagement is expected to increase and see growth with the hashtag #TheMuscleBehindUs serve as the common link fans can use to see the latest and greatest Dodge vehicles. This is in addition to the moniker created that encapsulates the feeling of owning a muscle car and embracing others who do with the “Brotherhood of Muscle”. Dodge is even making a social series that will feature select fans that have a chance to be featured in. Dodge muscle car owners can take part by adding their own stories and videos on their own social media pages with the unique hashtag attached. 

“Our Dodge performance enthusiasts are drawn together by their love of American muscle. And Dodge Power Dollars has tapped into something very powerful. So we’re now making Dodge Power Dollars available on any 2020 model-year Charger or Challenger to make it even easier for our fellow horsepower addicts to join ‘The Brotherhood of Muscle.” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler, FCA – North America.

Will There Be A Dodge Barracuda And When Will It Appear?

Barra Kendall Dodge

Photo credit: Dodge

Dodge has been successful in recent years, closing the last decade with tremendous sales. Apparently, the world is awaiting the Dodge Barracuda. In fact, according to Google, the vehicle is a popular search topic. A lot of people are searching for a new Dodge muscle car, maybe because there hasn’t been a new one announced since 2008 when the Dodge Challenger came back to life. The renderings of the Barracuda have the vehicle looking similar to the exterior shape and design of the Challenger. The muscle car carries similar bold features and the aerodynamics of the vehicle are apparent. The suggested price point is expected to be close to the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, around $75,000 MSRP, according to some sources. We’re not sure if Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is planning the Barracuda to come out as a surprise, but we can’t definitely say it’s coming out in 2020. Some reports suggest this might be the year, but we are not sure.

When Come The Barracuda Come Out?

Dodge enjoyed 2019 with a victory over the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro in terms of sales in the third-quarter and held its own throughout last year. Dodge knows customers are anxious to see more options. The Dodge brand has carried the nameplate of the Barracuda before. The debut would most likely take place at a major international auto show and some of the upcoming dates and cities include New York, Miami, and Los Angeles. The New York International Auto Show will run from April 10, 2020 through April 19th, 2020,  the State Fair of Texas, will be open from September 25th through October 18th, 2020, the Los Angeles Auto Show, will run November 20th through the 29th, 2020. As for South Floridians, the Miami International Auto Show will see the date pushed back, skipping 2020 altogether with its 50th-anniversary auto show taking place in February 2021. The Detriot North American International Auto Show, where the Barracuda could possibly debut, moved from January to June recently. 

Other Nameplates That Have Returned

Many nameplates have not gone away and stayed in the minds of previous owners and fans. The Blazer was recently one name that returned, the Gladiator, the Supra and many other vehicle names across multiple brands have resurfaced. The Dodge Barracuda is one example that has not gone away and many have pegged the return as more than a possibility, but a future entry into the Dodge muscle car lineup. Let’s see what happens, as for those looking for a new Dodge vehicle, come to us at Miami Lakes Automall to get started on securing the newest Dodge muscle cars available today.

Dodge Switches Up Splitter Guard Color With A Dramatic Change

Splitter Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

Dodge and FCA have developed a very ingenious plan to better preserve their top muscle car paint jobs and ensure they remain protected. In the last half-decade, many owners have managed to retain their splitter guards on their Dodge muscle cars. This was not the original intention by Dodge when the vehicles were designed. If these splitter guards are not taken off, they could potentially harm the body’s paint. Splitter guards are used as a shield for the splitter should any object come in contact with it during transportation or when moving during the off-load process at a dealership. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), the parent company of Dodge, has supervised the choice to use these plastic guards, beginning in 2015 when they originally commenced the splitter guards existing. Over the past five years, a community has embraced and kept these plastic splitter guards on their Dodge muscle cars. This is somewhat of a polarizing topic as even a Facebook group of splitter guard fans has over 12,000 members, but FCA has made a choice to change the formerly yellow-colored guards to change to a new hot-pink color.

Here Comes the Hot Pink Flare

Enter the new hot-pink brightness attached with the splitter guards. Luckily, one group of customers might enjoy this change more so than any other place in the country. That would be Dade Country, with our Miami Heat Vice City fans. However, customers at large might not welcome the change. Luckily, there is a genuine reason these splitter guards were changed. They were first intended to be separated by dealerships, but many of them have decided to leave the choice to the customer after a purchase. Having a splitter guard taken off the vehicle is one way to ensure the vehicle maintains its brand new look. Some customers believe the splitter guard looks new. Keep in mind, several other ways are more reliable to find out how new a vehicle is. Checking the title, checking a carfax, or fastest is the odometer. Since the odometer is less prominent than a splitter guard, some first-time customers are instantly attracted to the plastic splitter guard. That might change when the pink ones start to roll out.

Guard The Paint Job With No Splitter Guards

Many people look forward to driving off the lot with the splitter guard on. Nevertheless, the current head designer of the Dodge and SRT had this to say about those owners and he has been outspoken that he isn’t a fan of the splitter guard. Keeping the paint safe for the vehicle is what FCA and drivers ultimately want most. With the splitter guards on, the paint fades over time, seemingly because the plastic can move somewhat and produce irritation that removes the paint faster. The addition of the splitter guard wasn’t “part of the original design” for FCA and Dodge. While this new trend that has been staying around and grew out of popularity for the wrong reasons, we still allow the choice to be up to the customer. Currently, the splitter guards are made with yellow and that is expected to change eventually in 2020 to pink. Have more questions? Feel free to ask us at Miami Lakes Automall.

Dodge Confirms 2021 Dodge Durango Will Have SRT Hellcat Trim

2021 Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

Dodge and parent company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), have made a bright choice by including the Dodge Durango to the SRT family, but are now taking it one step further. Today, the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger are the lone Dodge vehicles that present an SRT Hellcat trim. Of course, we’ve just learned the news that Dodge will include the Hellcat to its large SUV staple, the upcoming 2021 Dodge Durango. New to the Durango will be the greatest engine made by Fiat Chrysler, the extraordinary 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 engine and all the perks of the SRT Hellcat trim. Exclusively badging, style, and power that makes the Hellcat so impressive. Let’s get into all the upcoming news with the Durango.

We Are All Waiting For the Durango SRT Hellcat

Currently, no footage has come of the entire 2021 Dodge Durango for customers to view, but that will change when the vehicle debuts at the 2020 New York International Auto Show. The current fastest Dodge Durango is the SRT trim that offers a 6.4-Liter HEMI V8 powertrain that affords 475 horsepower and a solid 470 lb-ft of torque rating. But, for Dodge and FCA, they are committed to breaking the boundaries and records for power and have full concentration towards improving their brand. That’s exactly what customers can expect with the SRT Hellcat. In the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, owners are treated to 797 horsepower stock! We’re not sure what the Durango SRT Hellcat will boast, but we will soon learn at the New York International Auto Show on April 10th through the 19th, 2020 at the Javits Center in Manhattan, New York. 

Ready For the Hellcat SUV?

The 2021 Dodge Durango is set to add the monstrous Hellcat trim to its line-up, almost as compelling as any in the Hellcat family. Looking for an SRT Hellcat muscle vehicle? It won’t have to be a car any longer. From the already powerful Dodge Durango vehicle line-up, soon we’ll see the results Dodge has put together.

Dodge To Receive Improved Technology, Upgrades To Uconnect 5

Uconnect Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: FCA

The future of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will be based on innovation. The main goal in this decade is to continue to push for electric vehicles and the latest in plug-in hybrid technology across all vehicles. Some of the current Jeep, Ram and eventually Dodge vehicles are going to see this technology take over. The only question is when; FCA has its sights set on making all their vehicles less reliant on gas and focused on promoting greater gas mileage more so than ever before. In keeping with their approach to growing their technology in all their vehicles, the latest rollout of the new Uconnect 5 infotainment system will help take FCA further. Uconnect 4 was an improvement in providing customers with faster connectivity, but this recent upgrade takes the technology even further.   

UConnect 5 Is Smooth, Fast, and Easy To See

FCA has added support for Amazon Alexa, allows over-the-air updates, plus two devices can now be used simultaneously. Of course, Android Auto and Apple Car Play are still going to be supported, but the Uconnect 5 won’t come on small screens. The latest system took notes from what has been the most popular and successful touchscreens and opted to include this latest Uconnect system to a 12.3-inch Ultra HD touchscreen with a fully customizable home screen for drivers to embrace. 

“Our customers live busy lives, and our goal with the Uconnect platform is to provide an advanced portfolio of services to make their daily drive more convenient, productive and enjoyable. This is why we are launching Uconnect Market, as we continue to ramp-up our connectivity efforts around the world with the goal of having all new FCA vehicles connected by 2022,” said Alan D’Agostini, Global Head of Connected Services, FCA. 

The Perks of Uconnect 5

The Uconnect 5 system has made life easier for drivers and passengers. The ability to support up to five driver profiles is ideal for families or businesses, including total preferences for everything a driver needs. Everything is connected with the Uconnect 5 system. This includes the music, apps, but also climate and car temperature, seat positioning and customized touchscreen. The system will differ depending on which vehicle, but the results have shown the Uconnect 5 is five times quicker than the Uconnect 4. This is due to the 50K MIP chip added, along with 6 GB of RAM implemented.  

Improved Features of the Uconnect System

FCA has proclaimed the Uconnect 5 is going to be based on Android’s automotive operating system. This is a more feature-rich and savvy infotainment set-up that will see up to 12 million pixels in their Ultra HD screens. Sharp graphics are expected as well with a new widget-based home screen. For our customers that want to experience the FCA Uconnect system, we have plenty of FCA vehicles ready to go at Miami Lakes Automall. Try us out today!

2006 Dodge Viper Twin Turbo Is the Fastest Viper Ever

2006 Viper Miami Lakes

Photo credit: Dodge

The Dodge Viper has made new headlines in 2020 despite not being an actual production vehicle. The first-ever Dodge Viper owned by former Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca has sold for an incredible $285,500, despite being a 1992 model year Viper. The very first Dodge Viper ever made only had put on 6,220 miles in nearly 30 years. While the Dodge Viper has not been in production since 2017, but that hasn’t stopped enthusiasts and production groups from enhancing their own Viper creations. In fact, news just broke about the fastest Dodge Viper ever.

The Fastest Viper Ever

The latest creation made by Calvo Motorsports, a Texas-based production team that had already made a fifth-generation Dodge Viper hit the 1/2 world record with a time of 208 mph back in 2016. This current record is the fastest time a Dodge Viper has ever set, driven at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds. The upgraded and enhanced 2006 Dodge Viper Twin Turbo hit a remarkable speed of 252 mph during a run of 2.7 miles. The limits of the Viper are unknown with feats like this! Check out the record-breaking Viper results for yourself.

Enhanced 2006 Dodge Viper Twin Turbo

While this Dodge Viper is technically street-legal, we can attest those speeds are greatly enhanced with some engineering help. The record was set at Shuttle Landing Facility in Merritt Island, Florida, on January 18, the company announced in a press release. The time it took the driver to hit the record-breaking time was only 40 seconds and kept up the speed for nearly 15 seconds. The scope of its production upgrades have not been revealed, the blue and white coupe’s V-10 gain a twin-turbo that hit a remarkable 1400 horsepower. 

A Flying Dodge Viper?

One surprising detail, but possibly not too outlandish, was the addition of a parachute. It was serving as a precautionary measure since the Viper was tuned to hit over 250 mph. At that kind of speed, maybe the fear was the Dodge Viper taking flight as it soared to such wild speeds. The record broken had stood for nearly two decades. The previous fastest Dodge Viper was a Striker Twin Turbo that hit 247 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats back in 2001. For those looking to drive the latest Dodge vehicles, come to Miami Lakes Automall.

The New 2021 Dodge Durango Has Been Spotted

2021 Durango Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Motor1

Dodge has been working to improve the exterior design of one of the brand’s most popular vehicles, the Dodge Durango. Enhancing the upcoming 2021 Durango with a fresh grill, according to new spy spots, shows the commitment to refinement in both design and craftsmanship by Dodge. Known for its robust power, high-intensity speed, and sharp design, improving the latter is welcomed news. The Durango has not changed its exterior look, aside from special edition packages, since 2014. This will be the first refresh to the current third-generation, large SUV. The Durango experienced its best sales in 2019 since 2006 with over 77,000 vehicles sold in North America. 

What Will the New Durango Look Like?

Based on the photos that have come out, we can tell the bumper has not changed, but the grille seems to have a slightly boxier design. The lower fascia was covered up, however, the fog lights appear to have shifted higher. The upcoming Durango should have all-wheel-drive, as the spy photos reared a 4 emblem on the rear. One change coming to Durango will be in the form of a mid-hybrid version debuting. While this hybrid engine could come for the 2020 Dodge Durango, most likely the engine will be added to the 2021 Dodge Durango. This will be the same mild-hybrid system used in the Ram 1500 and Jeep Wrangler; both of those vehicles are apart of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the parent company of Dodge, Jeep, and Ram. 

Why Opt for the Durango?

Among the many choices customers have with a large SUV, there is no fastest than the Dodge Durango. The Dodge Durango SRT is simply the fastest with its shocking 4.4-second 0-60 time. It’s more than durable and handles like no other SUV. The “Street Racing Technology (SRT)” first debuted with the 2018 Durango and has become the high-performance trim that carries the strongest powertrain, the 6.4-Liter HEMI V8 engine. The 475 horsepower afforded to drivers that opt for the SRT is impressive. The current Dodge Durango and the upcoming 2021 Durango carry both the 3.6-Liter V6 and 5.7-Liter V8 powertrain options. Thinking about adding a new Dodge Durango or Dodge vehicle? Starting off with 2020 with a fresh, new or pre-owned vehicle is possible with help from Miami Lakes Automall. We’re ready to help our readers get started.

What’s Next For Dodge?

2019-Dodge Challenger-SRT-Hellcat-Widebody

Photo credit: Dodge

What will come next for the Dodge brand? After closing the last decade with a remarkable stretch that included many highlights, what is up the Dodge brand’s sleeve? We are sure to see more special edition packages for their muscle cars. The Dodge Durango SRT is a remarkable choice for drivers, but will this new decade see Dodge continue pushing the limit even further of the top speed placed into the large SUV segment? We’re not in the business of speculating much, but we can say we already know the fastest muscle cars can be found at Kendall Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram and they are made by Dodge. Let us share our ideas for the Dodge brand brought on by speculation, rumors, and insiders of the automotive industry. 

Where Does Dodge Go Next?

After creating a new widebody trim for the 2020 Dodge Charger, what else can Dodge do for its muscle car segment? The truth is going to come out little by little, but these are our ideas for the next few years of the Dodge brand. 2018 was highlighted by the introduction of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, followed up by the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Combined these vehicles carried over 1,600 horsepower! Could Dodge go one step further and introduce a 900 or even a 1,000 horsepower production muscle car? Some shops around the world have put their focus on upping the ante with high-specialized forms of Dodge products, but could Dodge get ahead of the competition and offer such impressive production for the masses? The muscle car popularity has reached an all-time high after a decade that saw the latest Dodge vehicles hit their stride with impressive sales and deliveries. Look for Dodge to revamp their decade-old frames of the Challenger and Charger at some point, plus an electrified version of each muscle car at some point in this decade.

Improving the Dodge Line-Up

Will Dodge create another vehicle in its segment? Could there be a new Dodge crossover or pickup someday? We’re fairly certain the success of fellow Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) brand, Jeep, and the Jeep Gladiator might have moved some at Dodge to consider making a Dodge pickup again. Of course, Dodge used to be Dodge Ram and the Ram brand is currently experiencing never-before-seen sales thanks to the innovation added to its premiere truck products including the Ram 1500 pickup. The recent merger by FCA to its new partner, PSA Groupe, will determine the ultimate fate of the Dodge brand. Till then, we’re certain this will be a busy year for Dodge. Our customers can come and check out the latest Dodge vehicles right now at Miami Lakes Automall. We are committed to finding the right choice for our customers.

Dodge Has A Lot To Celebrate Entering 2020

FCA Miami Lakes Automall

How did the Dodge brand, a part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), fare in 2019? This year has been a banner one for Dodge. During this year, Dodge has become the current king of the muscle car. Dodge has won plenty of awards, added more vehicles, and improve its muscle car line-up from top to bottom. Dodge created the Dodge Challenger Widebody two years ago, but this year they added the widebody to the Dodge Charger in 2019. FCA has given their vehicles the latest technology and will look to improve their all the vehicles thanks to the massive merger with PSA Groupe. There is so much to recap from the Dodge brand this year, allow us to go over everything that has happened in 2019.

Dodge Headlines In 2019

Among the awards Dodge has earned, one unique form of recognition came from Consumer Reports and its reliability rankings of 2019. Dodge has an on-going debate amongst customers in regards to the splitters added to each Dodge vehicle, should they stay or go (They should go off) after a sale? 2019 saw the Head of the Dodge brand, Steve Beahm, retire. The Mopar Hellephante crate was officially sold out earlier in 2019. More milestones were reached with Dodge and the newest Dodge muscle cars.

Dodge Hits New Milestones

With over 50 years since the inception of the Dodge Challenger, Dodge decided to introduce the latest Dodge Challenger with a new special edition package that celebrates the half-century of the Challenger. The Dodge Charger saw a new SRT Hellcat special edition debut as well. In fact, Dodge made a special edition to celebrate this very vehicle that debuted in the last quarter of 2019. The Dodge Charger Daytona Edition premiered in a limited run, with a slew of body color options. FCA and Dodge put together a new Stars and Stripes Special Edition for both the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger. The latest Dodge vehicles have the newest Uconnect infotainment technology added. 

Dodge Was Focused On Big Results For Customers

The future for Dodge in the muscle car segment has never looked better. Dodge started 2019 by pulling ahead of the Chevrolet Camaro for sales, which was only the start of a year ahead that saw tremendous sales for all Dodge muscle cars. In fact, Dodge has surpassed the Ford Mustang in the third-quarter in terms of overall sales, with the Dodge Challenger finishing first among all major brand muscle cars. Dodge focused on improving the 2020 Dodge Durango, the fastest three-row SUV ever made and worked to send out the Grand Caravan out in style for customers to embrace. 

Lots To Celebrate For Dodge

Dodge and FCA have earned more than awards in 2019. Dodge has sold over 500 million horsepower and looked to celebrate this fact with a contest, the Dodge Horsepower Challenge Contest. This contest invited participants a chance to play and win one of five Dodge Challenger TorRed Special Editions. This year saw a rise in Dodge sales and FCA is set to improve its facilities and keep all their workers happy. A new deal that will see 4.5 million dollars added back resources to the production facilities where FCA products are made was made. Will Dodge continue to work on its electric plans? We’re sure they will. For customers looking to drive away with the latest Dodge vehicles, come to Miami Lakes Automall.

FCA Has Completed Their Merge With PSA Groupe

Merger Miami Lakes Automall

An official merge has taken place between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Peugeot, known as PSA Groupe. FCA is the parent company of Dodge, Jeep, Ram, and Chrysler after searching almost all of 2019 to find the right partner. The French government that has a significant stake in Peugeot applauded the deal and FCA confirmed the deal on December 18th, 2019. This deal delivers on the hope both companies have to go forward with transforming their vehicles into the 21st century with more electric vehicles, better products, and a greater presence in the automotive world. This new company is  now the fourth-largest automaker in the world, estimated to generate 8.7 million vehicles annually. Both automotive companies are looking to build on their brands, but some may see major changes. PSA Groupe CEO Carlos Tavares has declared he thinks in the history of both companies are a strong backbone of the new company. 

“We love the history of car brands, it gives us a foundation on which we can project ourselves into the future,” said Tavares. 

Changes To Each Current Brand?

Among the automotive brands this new company owns: Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Citroen, Chrysler, DS Automobiles, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Lancia, Maserati, Opel, Peugeot, Ram, and Vauxhall, we’re certain some changes will happen. Let us share our findings on each one of them and where they may go in the next decade. 

A Closer Look At Each Brand

Abarth, the high-performance line of Fiat’s, has sold just 26,736 vehicles in 2019. Notwithstanding, an increase of 7.4 percent compared to 2018 is nothing to complain about. Alfa Romeo sold less than 100,00 units in 2019 and changes might come to this brand in a big way. FCA CEO Mike Manley spoke of Alfa Romeo adding that all investments would be reduced before the merger was made official. Citroen is a French brand that was founded back in 1919. Citroen is expected to settle apart of the brand despite not having a name that is simple to read and has made no appearance in North America. Chrysler, which is known for the 300 large car and Pacifica minivan, is not expected to grow any more vehicles, but is expected to stay apart of the company. DS Automobiles, a new brand as of 2014 and apart of PSA Groupe’s upscale vehicle brand, we can see this brand growing worldwide. 

Dodge is about as safe as any of their brands, being apart of Chrysler for nearly a century. Fiat sold 1.38 million vehicles last year and is not expected to be removed. Jeep is the one brand that is presumed to grow more than ever with Europe getting to see what the American brand is all about. Lancia only sells one vehicle, the Ypsilon compact car, but sales have gone up significantly this year. This brand is a wild card. Maserati is safe and expected to see seven new models made between 2020 and 2023. Opel is a long-storied brand that made its first vehicle back in 1899. While this brand is only produced in Europe, plans remain to keep this brand apart of the company. Peugeot has an even deeper history that stretches over 200 years and has sold 1.74 million vehicles in 2018, so we are confident this brand will remain a vital cog in the new company. Ram has seen a massive jump with 263,000 more units sold so far this year over last year, and 2018 was Ram’s best year ever. This is a brand that will only grow as a result of this merger. Vauxhall is expected to remain apart of the company going forward.

2020 Dodge Journey Crossroad

2020 Dodge Journey Crossroad, Photo credit: Dodge

The 2020 Dodge Journey is known as America’s most affordable midsize crossover, but still offers more than just about any other vehicle in the segment. The Journey goes against the grain of every tradition mid-size SUV, its the only midsize crossover that offers seven-passenger seating. Equipped with over 40 available safety and security features, drivers of the Journey know they have a safe, reliable vehicle. The 2020 Dodge Journey is also quite modern with the latest Uconnect 8.4 Navigation available a powertrain that supplies owners with a complete, top-notch driving experience. We’re happy to show off the latest Journey and we look forward to seeing the next generation of the Journey coming down the road.

On the Horizon For the Dodge Journey

The future of the Dodge Journey is expected to see efforts to improve the powertrain, which is currently solid with its 2.4-Liter four-cylinder 172 horsepower and 165 lb-ft of torque. Speaking on behalf of the Dodge Journey, Mopar Insiders has slated the next-generation Journey to come in 2022 or as an early 2023 model. Currently, the Journey is using an 11-year old platform that looks to upgrade sooner rather than later. A change to a rear-wheel-drive is expected to help promote stronger on-road handling, but some speculate an all-wheel-drive option will be made. Other expectations will include a shorter Journey than the current 184.5-inch version currently being sold. 

The 2020 Journey SE Is A Solid Option

The 2020 Dodge Journey is priced at a low starting price of $25,905 MSRP (Plus destination fee) and offers two trim options. The base SE comes with excellent standard features like rear park assist and six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, Uconnect with Voice Command and Bluetooth capabilities, SiriusXM satellite radio, three-zone climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and leather-wrapped shift knob. 

Upgrade to the Crossroad Trim

The Crossroad trim includes a standard sunroof and the available Popular Equipment Group package includes a universal garage door opener, a subwoofer added to the six-speaker audio system, remote start, heated front seating, and heated steering wheel, plus navigation. The Crossroad trim begins at $31,255 MSRP (Plus destination fee). Both trims provide a solid 19 city mpg and 25 highway mpg.

The New 2020 Dodge Durango SRT Will Move You In More Ways Than One

SRT Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

Literally speaking, the 2020 Durango SRT is the fastest three-row SUV ever built. Amongst the competition Dodge faces from the likes of BMW and Porsche, no other rival company has produced any real competition for the Durango SRT. The Dodge three-row SUV carries an incredible 6.4-Liter V8 HEMI engine that affords drivers with a wicked 475 horsepower and impressive 470 lb-ft of torque. Let’s share all the latest features added to this incredible vehicle. Buyers don’t have to opt for a Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger to get a fast vehicle by Dodge. We’ll show you why the latest Durango has earned the respect of other brands and customers everywhere.

All About That Power

There is one other powertrain option for customers to side with, should they not want the massive power of the V8 HEMI, buyers can opt for the trusted  3.6-Liter Pentastar engine that produces 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Both powertrains are tied to a smooth Automatic 8-Speed transmission and a vehicle that has been engineered to deliver reliable results even in severe conditions. The Pentastar V6 can tow up to 6,200 pounds while the highest powertrain contributes 8,700 pounds of maximum towing capacity. So, when it comes to towing items, supplying drivers with sufficient strength and adding technology to keep drivers safe while driving. Considered one of the most comfortable SUVs along with being the fastest at its 4.4 second 0-60 time, there’s no vehicle that supplies as much as the new 2020 Dodge Durango.

More Than Just Strong, The Durango Is Rich With Luxury

Keep in mind, Dodge aims to supply comfort for all its customers and passengers. Included in the packages offered by Dodge, the SRT starts at $64,490 MSRP (Plus destination fee) and the technology group package gives adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and forward collision avoidance systems. The nicest materials are added into the SRT, including suede headliner, nicer upgrades along with the instrument panel and carbon fiber inserts that are added with a $2,495. Think about the luxury as well as the strength offered by the 2020 Dodge Durango SRT. Does the latest Dodge Durango sound like a vehicle that would be the perfect holiday gift for the family?

Photo credit: Dodge

An illustrious fifty years of the Dodge Challenger muscle car is in the books and in many garages today. For the half-century mark, the Dodge brand has made its special 50th-anniversary edition for the Dodge Challenger available for customers to purchase. Revealed at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show. Available in seven distinct body colors including the new “Gold Rush” color,  unique “Gold School” 20-inch wheels, a sleek Satin black hood, roof, and deckled, and four trims to choose from. Owners are going to receive quite the special Challenger to enjoy as a unique, prized-possession. 

All the Perks of the Special Edition Challenger

Customers can choose between the GT rear-wheel-drive version, R/T Shaker, R/T Scat Pack Shaker, and the R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody trim options. Between all these options, the actual combinations that buyers can select from are set exactly at 1,960 variations for the 50th-anniversary edition. Dodge dealerships will be receiving this special edition Challenger in December 2019. While there have been 50 years that have passed since the inception of the Challenger, the modern-looking Challenger built with the same unibody used today began back in 2008. Dodge has only improved the Challenger muscle car both inside and out. The fastest and strongest muscle car in the Dodge line-up is the Challenger!

“A half-century later, Dodge Challenger still leads the pack with the most powerful muscle car powertrains in the industry, ranging from the Pentastar V6 engine to the fastest, most powerful muscle car, the 797-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.” -Dodge statement

Dodge Has Become More Reliable Than Ever

Today, Dodge owners know not only will their muscle car deliver on excellent horsepower and resell value, but they will also be satisfied with the reliability as well. According to a new Consumer Reports Auto Reliability Survey, Dodge has earned for the first time a Top 10 finish on this list. The above-average rating for the Challenger as well as the Dodge Grand Caravan has helped Dodge jumped 13 higher spots than the 2018 survey.

Dodge brand’s Horsepower Challenge Contest Enters Week Three

BG Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

The third of five questions have been posted by Dodge during their Dodge Horsepower Challenge. The Dodge questions being posed on both their social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter have the latest question, as do we. First, we recommend our readers learn about how to play in this contest. Dodge brought back the Mayor of Muscleville, famed wrestler and Dodge muscle car enthusiast Bill Goldberg to serve as host. As for last week’s question, the answer was posted on November 19th, 2019.

The contestant who wins the contest will be awarded one of five brand new special-edition TorRed Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. This is currently the fastest Challenger vehicle, made famous when it debuted earlier this year. The SRT Hellcat Redeye carries the highest horsepower offered by Dodge currently at 797 horsepower thanks to the massive 6.2-Liter turbocharged V8 HEMI engine. Contestants are clamoring for the chance to own this special edition Dodge muscle car!

Week Three Has Arrived

This week, the third question is “If we recreated the scene from “Fast & Furious 7” and dropped a Challenger SRT® Hellcat Redeye Widebody from a C-130 aircraft at 5,280 ft, how much horsepower would it take to drive past it before it hits the ground if you’re 1 mile away?”. To view the question being asked by Goldberg himself, check out this link. There will be two more questions that follow, one for each week left in November. This week’s question and each week’s questions are officially launched on Tuesday at 8 a.m. ET and run through Monday, 11:59 p.m. ET. All the official rules can be found at Dodge.com.

Dodge Muscle Cars Have All the Power Drivers Could Want

Dodge vehicles bring out the passion in their owners, thanks to unrivaled horsepower and high-performance. The kind of enjoyment drivers gain when driving a Dodge vehicle is unparalleled. While the contest is going on, we encourage our readers to try their hand at answering these questions. Remember, the Dodge Horsepower Challenge is quite challenging! 

“At Dodge, we know that no matter how much horsepower you have, a little more can’t hurt. So we’re giving all our loyal fans an opportunity to get one of our highest horsepower Challenger models for free. Unfortunately, there isn’t really any such thing as free horsepower, so these five lucky Dodge fans will have to earn their way in by answering a horsepower question. Ok, the questions are ridiculously difficult, but it is a free Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, and we’ll help you along the way,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and Fiat, FCA

The Second Dodge Horsepower Challenge Question Is Revealed

Goldberg Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge is giving away five Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye muscle cars to select winners of their Dodge Horsepower Challenger. Each week for five weeks, Dodge will be choosing a winner among those who answer their weekly questions posed on Dodge.com and their Dodge Twitter and Facebook accounts. Learn more about how to play in this contest, and get ready for week two’s question. The Mayor of Muscleville, famed wrestler and Dodge muscle car enthusiast Bill Goldberg has this week’s question for contestants to answer. Let’s go over the recent results, this week’s question and an overview of the timeframe to answer the questions.

Recap of Recent Contest Results

Last week’s question was definitely challenging (as it should be) and yet, there were quite a number of right answers. The giveaway is for the special-edition  TorRed Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, so of course, many people will seek to win this vehicle from Dodge. Dodge is helping with clues and ways to assist contestants. Following Dodge on social media helps as they post hidden hashtags and hints for what the answer could l

“Dodge fans have inundated our social channels this past week to find hidden hashtags to help them answer the first Dodge Horsepower Challenge question. And I have to say, I’m impressed. Over 3,000 enthusiasts have answered the challenge correctly. So as we release Challenge #2, don’t give up hope, we’ll continue to give out clues on Twitter and Instagram to help,” remarked Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America.

This Week’s Question + Guidelines

The questions are becoming slightly more difficult as this week’s question shows. Unfortunately, Dodge will not provide an easy multiple choice question. Contestants will have to really think and break out some mathematics to correctly solve each question. This week, the Dodge Horsepower Challenge question asked goes as follows: “If we wanted our cars to be quieter, we’d just have to make ’em go faster. How much horsepower would the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye need to get somewhere before the sound of its engine does?” 

The answer will be announced next week with three more questions left before all winners have been accounted for. The time a contestant has ranges from Tuesday, November 19th at 8 am through the following Monday, November 25th at 11:59 pm. For our readers that don’t want to play games, we don’t when it comes to showing off our latest Dodge Vehicles

Stolen 1,000 Horsepower Challenger Is Rescued, Debuts At SEMA Show

SEMA Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: RoadandTrack

Nothing could stop the 1,000 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye from reaching its destination point of the SEMA car show. The muscle car concept was stolen by a burglar who wound up crashing into a police car during a high-speed chase. Over 14 patrol cars went on a massive car hunt that lasted 11 hours. At various points in the chase, the stolen Challenger was hitting speeds of up to 150 mph! In the end, they decided to showcase this remarkable vehicle on display. Complete with its police crime scene tape wrapped around the vehicle with the front bumper hanging off, this Dodge Challenger shows off the enhanced and modified powertrain and other under the hood advancements. A beautiful Challenger complete with custom carbon fiber body parts, new aftermarket wheels, and enhanced brakes will need some repairs now. Let’s share the facts on this wicked fast and recovered Challenger.

Details On the 1,000 Horsepower Challenger

Built by the Quintin Brother Auto and Performance from Williston, Vermont as a show car for the ProCharger showcase, the Dodge Challenger had been upgraded to fit its nearly unimaginable 4-digit horsepower engine. This won’t be the first 1,000 horsepower Dodge Challenger, as one was made just last year with a 5.8-Liter supercharged HEMI V8 powertrain. This vehicle was made to be a hit even before the high-speed chase, but today there is perhaps even more fanfare regarded this vehicle. The vehicle still works and can run, though heavy detailed work will be required to make the vehicle look brand new again. 

More on the Capture and Eventual Trip To Sema

The Nevada State Trooper, Adam Whitmarsh, responsible for helping stop the criminal who stole the vehicle was invited to join the SEMA showcase with the Quentin Brothers at their display. The 1,000 horsepower Challenger almost didn’t make it to the SEMA show, if it were not for the on-going coverage and headline news that went on. The local media is partly to thank for having this remarkable Dodge Challenger shown off at one of the premier auto shows in the country. Thinking about getting a new Dodge muscle car lately? We can help make that happen.

Dodge is looking to grant five hopeful contestants with a new special edition TorRed Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Why is Dodge giving away these five limited-edition Dodge muscle cars? Each week beginning on November 5th, 2019, a weekly “Dodge Horsepower Challenge” will kick-off. A multiple-choice horsepower-inspired question will be added on Dodge.com on every Tuesday for a month. The first week kicks off with the Mayor of Muscleville himself, Bill Goldberg, asking the first multiple-choice question posted on Dodge.com. Each Tuesday there will be a single question added over the course of five weeks. Let us share all the specifications for our readers to be familiarized ahead the contest. We want to help some people with their chance to take home the fastest production muscle car in the world! 

Look For Details Every Day Starting Soon!

Want to figure out the answer to the questions? Just keep up with Dodge on their Instagram and Twitter social media pages. Dodge intends on delivering clues for customers in the form of hidden hashtags and different pictures. Only one image will be posted per day that will hint at the contest. They have stated they prepared for tons of answers, and only five answers will be correct when its all said and done. Earlier this month, Dodge exceeded its aim of 500 million horsepower sold to customers quicker than expected. Dodge is happy to announce they have sold so many muscle cars to customers this contest originated as a result. 

More On the Upcoming Contest

Fulfilling all five questions accurately over the five weeks will put the candidates in the best chance to win the Dodge Challenger TorRed SRT Hellcat Redeye contest. This is a Dodge muscle car packed with more horsepower than any currently in production at 797 horsepower! We heard from the Head of Ram and SRT about this upcoming giveaway in a statement that goes over the thoughts from FCA and their Dodge brand. 

“At Dodge, we know that no matter how much horsepower you have, a little more can’t hurt. So we’re giving all our loyal fans an opportunity to get one of our highest horsepower Challenger models for free. Unfortunately, there isn’t really any such thing as free horsepower, so these five lucky Dodge fans will have to earn their way in by answering a horsepower question. Ok, the questions are ridiculously difficult, but it is a free Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, and we’ll help you along the way,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America.

Interested In Horsepower? We’ve Got You Covered

Hellcat Miami Lakes Automall

We enjoy riding in Dodge vehicles just as much as our customers. At Miami Lakes Automall, part of the fun of selling and leasing vehicles is getting to see all the ins and outs of these remarkable Dodge muscle cars. What are muscle cars known for? Delivering top-notch power and being fast. So how does a muscle car or any vehicle engine supply horsepower when driving and which current Dodge vehicle offers the most horsepower? Let’s begin explaining how horsepower works.

Brief History of Horsepower Creation

The term horsepower was originally coined back in 1702 as a way to measure the amount of movement over time. One horsepower equals 550 pounds across one foot in one second of time. The actual notes regarded by Thomas Savery in 1702 help explain how the measurements back then were made when comparing a steam engine to the production of horses. Savery wound up noting that a horse could turn a mill wheel 144 times in an hour, then he measured the length of the wheel (what the horse was moving) and came up with a formula to figure out “horsepower”.

“(Steam) engine will raise as much water as two horses, working together at one time in such a work, can do, and for which there must be constantly kept ten or twenty horses to constantly maintained and kept for doing such a work.” -Thomas Savery, Scottish Engineer

Horsepower In the Automotive Industry

Horsepower when used with engines, this work is frictionless with regards to how gas energy works. A device called an engine indicator tracks the pressures from within the cylinders to note horsepower. There are actually a few ways to test the number of ways how power and torque can be measured from a vehicle. Torque is a moving force that is made by the engine’s crankshaft. The more torque created by the engine, the greater the engine’s ability to perform work is. Power is the final definition to go over, which is how fast work happens. James Watt came up with one horsepower being the power required to lift 33,000 pounds and move one foot per minute. So keeping this in mind, the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye produces 797 horsepower (the highest horsepower available today for Dodge customers) at 6000 RPM.  

Dodge Keeps Pushing the Horsepower Limit

Dodge has raised the level of the horsepower in their vehicles over the years, just going back to the 2010 Dodge Challenger has a maximum horsepower rating of 425 horsepower, today its 797 horsepower. There are ways to increase horsepower in a vehicle, including adding a cold air intake or adding nitrous oxide (if you want to be a Fast and Furious racer). Have more questions about horsepower? Reach out to us to find out about the latest Dodge muscle car and we can talk some real horsepower!

2020 Dodge Barracuda: Rumor or Next Dodge Car?

 

Barracuda Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge has seen their Challenger muscle car move ahead of their rival the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro in 2019. After third-quarter sales were revealed, Dodge was more than happy to see the success of their high-performance muscle car. However, with the loss in recent years of the Dodge Viper in 2017 and the Dodge Grand Caravan ending in 2020, Dodge has some room to add new vehicles. Perhaps that is the logic behind the rumors of the long-speculated Dodge Barracuda. 

More Speculation On the Barracuda

The rumors are just that, according to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), but some publications have reported that next year Dodge is set to produce a new car in 2020. There is no doubt Dodge has loyal fans of both the Challenger and Charger, but one more could vehicle could never hurt. Originally, the Barracuda, made by Plymouth before it became the Dodge brand, was a pony car. Whether the Barracuda is a sports car like the Viper or another muscle car, Dodge can find success with a new edition. Some believe the Barracuda could be a new trim or special edition convertible Challenger labeled as the Barracuda. Fellow FCA brand Chrysler has brought back another Plymouth nameplate with the Voyager returning as two lower-trim options for the Chrysler Pacifica. The Voyager minivan was successful in its day before its original run ended in 2000 and has already debuted as apart of the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica trim set. 

What Will the Barracuda Have?

Reports have the 2020 Dodge Barracuda becoming one of the fastest Dodge cars, close to the famed 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The SRT Demon has 840 horsepower and the expectation is the Barracuda will go 203 mph and come close to 800 horsepower. The fastest Dodge Challenger that is available today for sale is the SRT Hellcat Redeye that hits 797 horsepower. Should the rumors be true, the Barracuda will be a highly sought after vehicle. While the speculation is exciting, we know the best feeling driving a new Dodge vehicle that isn’t a rumor. The latest line-up of Dodge muscle cars is quite remarkable. Driving one of these high-powered Dodge vehicles is an experience we’ll be happy to share for our customers.

Dodge Challenger Reigns Supreme In 2019

Redeye Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

The competition among muscle cars has been fierce for the third quarter of 2019. The winner is the Dodge Challenger, which has come out on top ahead of long-standing rivals Chevrolet and Ford. Moving into first-place in front of both the latest Ford Mustang for the Chevy Camaro is an achievement for the Dodge brand. No other muscle car could match the sales of the premier Dodge muscle car, the high-performance Challenger. The Challenger saw a massive volume sold, hitting their biggest quarter ever. Dodge and parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles are happy to see their Challenger moving 18,031 units sold versus 16,823 Ford Mustang sold and 12,275 sold for the Chevy Camaro. 

How Did Dodge Pull So Far Ahead of the Rest?

Conventional wisdom would say that the Ford Mustang should have sold more volume than they did. They didn’t. Many would have guessed the Camaro should have done better, they didn’t fare any better, either. What could explain how Dodge did as well? The answer is found in all the perks Dodge offers that no other brand can match. No other vehicle saw a positive gain in this quarter. The Dodge Challenger saw their sales rise 21 percent over this time last year. Mustang fell down by 12.3 percent and Chevy saw the Camaro go down by 15 percent. Despite having an older platform, the Dodge Challenger keeps rolling against the competition. 

Maybe It’s the Muscle?

Ford doesn’t offer a muscle car that can match the aggressive horsepower offered in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. The upcoming Ford Shelby GT500 will have 37 less horsepower than the aforementioned Hellcat Redeye, which nearly hits 800 horsepower at an outstanding 797 horsepower. Just below that threshold is the SRT Hellcat that offers 707 horsepower. The Camaro, currently in the 6th generation, offers an engine that hits 650 horsepower by comparison. Dodge has learned their vehicles are among the most popular among drivers and their customer base is also younger than the competition’s as well. 

Perhaps the Success Is Due To Versatility 

Dodge won this quarter and looks to build on this success. More reasons that point out how this happened could be due to the fact that Dodge has plenty of trims and also offers many more special editions and unique packages. With so many different levels of the Challenger to drive off with, the Dodge brand helps customers take home the exact muscle car and perks they want. Stop by and pay us a visit at Miami Lakes Automall for all things automotive. Want to experience what it’s like behind the wheel of a muscle car? Allow us to make it happen at Miami Lakes Automall.

Among the choices buyers have in the minivan segment, few have carried as much prestige and as much horsepower as the Dodge Grand Caravan has over the years. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has announced that their Dodge Grand Caravan will have one last year of production scheduled to run through May 22nd, 2020. The latest carnation of the Grand Caravan will have a similar look as the current 5th generation wraps up its long run. The Grand Caravan was first made back in 1984. Today, the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan packs  283 horsepower that comes standard with its powerful V6 engine. in the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan. While the Dodge Grand Caravan is still available today, it might not be very soon.

Ending the Run On a High Note

FCA is preparing to turn the Grand Caravan into the Voyager to pair with the successful Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid minivans. The production of the Grand Caravan will be made at the FCA Windsor, Ontario, Canada factory where both minivans are produced. FCA has not formerly stated much about the plans for the end of the Dodge Grand Caravan. While some may view this as a way to help sales, the Dodge Grand Caravan will become more exclusive as its thirty-five-year run comes closer to its end. In fact, the Grand Caravan sold more in 2018 with American sales hitting 151,927 vehicles sold, the most since 2007. In fact, halfway through 2019, FCA has sold 71,947 Grand Caravan minivans. By comparison to the popular Pacifica, only 48,527 units of the Pacifica had been sold by June 2019. 

“Grand Caravan production has not ended and we have not made any announcements about the end of production. It is our policy not to comment on future production plans,” FCA spokesperson Jodi Tinson.

More On the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan

Equipped with a V6 engine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission, owners will enjoy the strength of the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan. The powertrain provides 262 lb-ft of torque and works with a nine-speed automatic to the front wheels.

Dodge Brings Their Best to Texas

State Fair of Texas Miami Lakes Automall

Everything is bigger in Texas. That’s a true statement, especially when Dodge rolls into the 2019 State Fair of Texas with its largest line-up ever. Dodge brought along the latest Grand Caravan, Journey, Charger, Challenger, and Durango for customers to see and behold. Drivers that want to spice up their daily driving routine would not only get a bargain on excitement but one of the best-produced vehicles on the roads in a current Dodge. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has worked hard to put together a top-notch group of vehicles and no brand represents their work quite like the Dodge brand. 

How FCA Has Made All Their Great Vehicles

Vehicles made by FCA and Dodge are possible thanks to the engineers and automakers that have a passion to bring out the best in each other. FCA has also done their best to reward their employees. For the 11th year in a row, FCA was named by the National Business Group on Health (NBGH) for their commitment to their employees. The award from the NBGh is the 2019 Best Employees: Excellence in Heath and Well-being Award. This is the ninth consecutive time that FCA is the only automaker to win this distinction. 

Not Just Muscle Cars Go Fast

Very few vehicles are able to handle quite like a Dodge, whether it’s their muscle cars or their Dodge Durango SUV. The Durango also carries an SRT version. The Street Racing Technology added to the SRT trim of the Durango and thus created the fastest three-row SUV in the world. Speaking on behalf of FCA, the parent company of Dodge, Steve Yandura, the Director of the Southwest Business Center for FCA US added this statement.

“We are bringing our best lineup yet to the State Fair of Texas, Texas Auto Show. Every year, we work to build on our past success at the fair and this year fair attendees will thoroughly enjoy our displays and interactives,”  – said Steve Yandura.

Experience the Acceleration of the Dodge Line-up

Don’t wait any longer to experience driving a Dodge vehicle. Amongst the many cars that have been produced for the muscle car segment, few offer as much value for the price as the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger. The latest editions from Dodge punctuate the strength of the brand. Dodge took the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye to show off at the State Fair of Texas. For drivers hoping to show off a vehicle of their own, driving the new SRT Hellcat Redeye is not a bad way to start. The 797 horsepower fitted from its remarkable 6.2-Liter turbocharged engine makes the SRT Hellcat Redeye stand out. This Dodge product is likely the most aggressively fast muscle car most car owners will ever drive. Want to know what these vehicles are like? Made with love and ready to be driven by owners who love them, we have the latest collection of Dodge vehicles today at Miami Lakes Automall.

Breaking Down the 2020 Dodge Challenger Packages

2020 Challenger Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

The 2020 Dodge Challenger is set to debut in the fall of 2019, which will be here before we know it. Our readers want to be informed about all the details and specs, but keep in mind all of the unique features of the upcoming Challenger: all the packages awaiting buyers. When the 2020 Dodge Challenger becomes available, drivers will have exactly 19 different packages and trim options across the entire 2020 model. From the base trim to the high-end SRT Hellcat Redeye, the 2020 Dodge Challenger has package options for every kind of Dodge Challenger driver. A package is the performance upgrade, appearance upgrade or both that are supplied to a particular trim. 

Deciding On a Challenger Package? Let Us Help

When thinking of the Dodge Challenger, most buyers imagine a very strong and fast muscle car. However, there are many key differences that separate the base trim from the higher trims as we will discuss. From more powerful engines to more decked out interiors, buyers trim choice usually reflects how they will use their Challenger. In addition, so will the package. Sometimes the more cost-effective way to save money is to opt for a package rather than a higher trim. Let’s get into the specific packages that will supply more Dodge muscle fun to buyers looking to upgrade their vehicle with an awesome package. 

Make a Serious Jump In Performance

If the Challenger R/T or GT are looking to add some flare, the Performance Handling Group improves the braking system, adds high-performance suspension, 20-inch “Lights Out” wheels wrapped by 245/45ZR20 all-season performance tires and improved performance steering. For drivers that want to experience some of the perks of the Street Racing Technology (SRT) trim offered in the Hellcat, we suggest opting for a performance upgrade package in the very least. If a buyer envisions days spent on a race track, by all means, this is a great start. The Dynamics Package is available solely for the Scat Pack trim, which adds new 20×9.5-inch black wheels, 275-wide all-season tires, and premium Brembo brakes from the Hellcat trim to the Scat Pack. 

Want to See a New Look?

As stated earlier, not every package is about performance. Two packages are offered that focus solely on the vehicle’s exterior. The Painted Black Satin Graphic Package is available for every SRT Hellcat and Hellcat Redeye, which adds a painted hood, roof and trunk lid. 

The Technology Group Package gives the 2020 Dodge Challenger improved rain-sensing windshield wipers, Forward Collision Warning and adaptive cruise control. Auto high-beam headlamp control is also added. For those who want to add the adaptive cruise control, the Forward Collision Warning package is available for all trims with automatic transmission, except for the SRT Hellcat Redeye trim. 

Want to upgrade the interior appearance? The Alcantara Appearance Package will supply the SRT Hellcat or Hellcat Redeye trim with Alcantara suede and premium Laguna leather seating and the included SRT Hellcat logo stitched into the seats. A power four-way lumbar adjust is added along with a “Wildwheel” Alcantara steering wheel. The Mopar Interior Appearance group will supply the SXT, GT, R/T and Scat Pack, except for all-wheel-drive and supercharged trim levels, with a trunk mat, bright door sills, premium floor mats with a matching bright pedal kit. The Driver Convenience Group package provides HID headlamps, Blind-spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross Path detection. This is an option for nearly every trim. 

Audio Upgrades?

Looking to upgrade just the audio system? The Alpine Audio Group adds nine premium Alpine speakers in a set up that adds a subwoofer hooked up to a 506-watt amplifier. Or the Harman Kardon Audio Group upgrade might work as an option. This will add a Harman Kardon 900-watt amplifier, 18 premium speakers and a tire service kit instead of a spare tire. No matter which upgrades or packages a buyer might want to go with, we can help at Miami Lakes Automall

There’s No Stopping the Upcoming 2020 Dodge Charger

Daytona Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

The Dodge Charger has experienced growth in 2019 with new special editions on the horizon and some that have recently appeared. Many customers are awaiting the upcoming 2020 Dodge Charger, which should be arriving in dealerships later during the fall of 2019. We’re just as excited to see the latest Charger as there will be no stopping the success of this muscle sedan that keeps selling well despite the sedan segment slowing down in the automotive industry. The first-ever Dodge Charger SRT Widebody has added new attention to the Dodge muscle car fanbase, which is among the youngest compared to the competition. We’re ready to take our readers on a journey through the future of the Dodge Charger.

How the Dodge Charger Is Still So Successful

Despite not changing the body and frame of the Dodge Charger for over a decade, the Dodge Charger is still popular. The newest special edition is the 50th anniversary Dodge Charger Daytona Edition, which looks great and is a rare find with only 501 models made. Dodge and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) have more than a limited edition coming for the 2020 Charger. For those who can’t wait to get their hands on pure Dodge muscle, a promotion is running through September known as the Power Dollars promotion that buyers can still enjoy if they hurry.

More On the 2019 Sales

Now through September 30th, 2019, the Dodge Power Dollars promotion is a great incentive for those hoping for a wonderful deal to drive home a new 2019 Charger. The Power Dollars promotion helps buyers gain a cash rebate of $10 for each unit of horsepower in the vehicle they are purchasing. Customers that opt for the acclaimed top-tier Charger, the SRT Hellcat, can save an amazing $7,070. The rebate for this promotion applies to all trims of the latest Charger. The Dodge promotion is also available to other vehicles of the Dodge family, including the 2019 Dodge Challenger and 2019 Dodge Durango as well. For fans of these high-performance Dodge vehicles, this is the time to take them home on a fantastic deal. 

Thinking About the New Widebody?

Dodge can thank the Charger for an 8.8% increase in vehicle sales through the first half of 2019 versus the previous year, raising its total to 45,046 vehicles sold. We know buyers want to finally get their hands on the first widebody ever made for the Charger. The Widebody trim will provide drivers with extra rubber on the tires, more horsepower and greater traction for owners. Though the sedan market has seen declining sales, the Dodge Charger has only experienced increased sales. Speaking on the greatness of the Charger, Kevin Hellman, Dodge brand manager talked about the current state of the sedan market and the Dodge Charger and the upcoming Widebody trim.

“There are people that have been doing it in the aftermarket here and there, but I think directly from us is really what people have been waiting for. Other than the additional performance that we’ve added in terms of getting the grip to the ground, the car looks beautiful, too.” – Kevin Hellman, Dodge Brand Manager

The landscape of muscle cars attracts many drivers from every age group. However, recent insight has highlighted buyers of various muscle car brands. Speaking candidly about the average age of the Dodge muscle cars, owners, Kevin Hellman, Dodge Challenger brand manager, had some new information. Curious to learn more about the future of the Challenger and what the “the youngest buyer in the segment” is? 

Dodge Has Youngest Age of Muscle Car Customers

According to Hellman, the youngest age group between all major muscle car companies is not as youthful as some would guess at 51 years young.  The rival Ford Mustang has an average buyer age of 55 years old, and the Chevrolet Camaro has an average customer age at 53 years old. With people living longer in more recent generations, of course, the age of drivers on the road has increased. Since 2000, the number of car owners over 55 years old has gone up 15 percent. The rush of driving a muscle car is not lost with time, especially since the Dodge muscle cars have become better.

If It’s Not Broke, It Doesn’t Need to Be Fixed

Speaking of age, the Dodge Challenger and Charger have aged gracefully despite not having a massive overhaul in over a decade for each car.  The Dodge Challenger is currently the second-best-selling muscle car in the United States. Dodge has continued to pull away from the Chevrolet Camaro boasting over 4,000 more units sold through just over two-quarters worth of sales. Through July 2019, Dodge has moved 28,668 Challenger vehicles while the Camaro sold 24,516 vehicles. The appeal of the Dodge Challenger remains, and Dodge will continue pushing their prized muscle car.  Head of design for Dodge, Chrysler, and SRT, Mark Trostle, remarked the design of the Challenger will not change any time soon. The change to the appearance won’t happen despite the latest safety regulations and fuel economy standards, making it made it harder to keep the current design. Dodge has found creative ways to improve fuel economy over the years and enhance the vehicle to be even faster and more powerful. 

Find All-Ranges of Power With Dodge

Looking to drive a muscle car from Dodge? Dodge has a wide variety of trims with its Dodge Challenger. From the base Challenger trim, the SXT gives drivers a 3.6-Liter V6 engine that delivers 305 horsepower and the highest-trim, the 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye trim hits a remarkable 797 horsepower.

2019 Charger Octane Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge has done many things this year to step outside of the box. A push has been made for years, however, to see what Dodge muscle cars would look like without any box. By that we mean, is there the possibility of a convertible? We will have to wait and see, but Dodge recently came out with a widebody for the Dodge Charger. We’re going to go over the newest vehicles added to their ever-impressive Dodge muscle lineup. These are the vehicles that helped showcase how innovative Dodge has been. Dodge has created some of the fastest, most powerful, and colorful vehicles on the road today. Special edition packages are available to customers that don’t mind paying a little extra to gain a look that is more unique and adds upgrades for the interior, exterior and more. Let’s explore some of the newest ones added in 2019. 

Special Edition Anyone?

Dodge has introduced plenty of special edition packages for their muscle cars. Just within the past year, they have introduced the Stars and Stripes package, a special edition for both the Charger and Challenger. Celebrating the armed forces with a low-cost $1,995 MSRP cost, drivers can add the green and black body appearance to the R/T, R/T Scat Pack and GT trim levels. The Dodge brand has the highest percentage of active military buyers in the automotive industry.

How about the all-new Octane Edition? This package provides two body color options, “White Knuckle” and “Pitch Black”. The Octane Edition provides 707 horsepower and a fantastic appearance package that provides black wheels, SRT seats with red belts, red Brembo brakes, black badges and a pitch-black interior accent that carries red stitching. The package costs $1,495 MSRP on top of the Hellcat price. 

The Dodge Charger Daytona Edition starts at $3,495 and is available for the R/T and R/T Scat Pack trims. What else does this edition carry? 20-inch painted aluminum wheels, Daytona decals on the hood, roof, and trunk. Daytona front grille and instrument panel badges with Nappa Leather/Alcantara Suede-trimmed seats. Driver and front passenger lower and upper LED lamps. Regarded by many as a thing of beauty with the sharp handling, rear-wheel-drive, and fantastic style for less than some of the highest-tier Dodge muscle cars. 

What separates Dodge from other brands?

Inside the 2019 Dodge Charger and Challenger is the legendary 3.6-Liter V6 powertrain, the engine supplied to all base trims. Next up, the 5.7-Liter HEMI V8 engine provides even more horsepower and torque for owners to embrace. In the highest trim, these muscle cars are given the top-tier turbocharged 6.2-Liter HEMI V8 powertrain that carries the most horsepower provided in nearly any production muscle car on the market today. Perhaps the best way to know which vehicle suits you best is to check in with us.

Let’s take a look at how much our readers can save when they go to buy these latest Dodge vehicles. Curious to see how the Dodge Power Dollars program works?

Rejoice: The Dodge Power Dollars Has Started!

The Dodge Power Dollars offerings have officially begun and will last through September 3rd, 2019. So what will customers receive? Dodge will give $10 off for every horsepower under the hood of the Dodge vehicle a customer purchases. So, for those looking for the most powerful Dodge Challenger in production, the lighting quick 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, buyers take $7,970 off the top-tier Challenger. The SRT Hellcat Redeye possesses an exceptional 797 horsepower and allows the greatest amount the Dodge Power Dollars incentive possible. How many deals like this will come any time soon?

Going Further With the Power Dollars Deal

Regarding the vehicles that are apart of the Power Dollar incentive, they span across all trim and powertrain levels. Take for example the base model 2019 Dodge Challenger, the SXT. This muscle car outfits drivers 305 horsepower, meaning customers would save $3,050. The entry-level 2019 Charger is also the SXT, equipped with a 292 horsepower engine, so customers immediately save $2,920. The entry-level Durango is the SXT as well, extending 293 horsepower and the highest trim level is the SRT Durango, which scores 475 horsepower. The savings for customers would be $2,930 and $4,750 respectfully. No matter what trim, except thousands of savings!

Dodge Charger Funny Car Hits Over 11,000 Horsepower!

Photo credit: Csere

Dodge is known for building some of the fastest production cars that are available to customers to own or lease. Some of the vehicles made by Dodge are not quite available to the public, like their funny car drag racers. More recently, Dodge has unleashed their new 2020 Dodge Charger, which will be available to the public, in its funny car form. Known as the Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Funny Car drag racer, this is no ordinary vehicle. Consider the immensely powered and stunning 11,000 horsepower. That is not a typo either, five figures. Eleven thousand horsepower! 

More On the Newest Dodge Funny Car

The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) held their annual Nationals meet in Colorado earlier this month and set a record time on the track. With the help of two-time NHRA Funny Car Champion Matt Hagen behind the wheel, the all-new Dodge funny car earned a 3.79-second race time with a spectacular speed of 338 mph. The short-run netted the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Funny Car with a mind-blowing average acceleration of just over 4.0 g’s. That’s quite impressive and most of this power is thanks to the aforementioned 11,000 horsepower engine. So, how does this vehicle work under the hood?

About That Powertrain

Inside the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Funny Car is an 8.1-Liter V8 that pushes 11,000 horsepower and close to 8,000 lb-ft of torque. This engine is capable of revving to 8500 rpm and uses a block and heads machined from solid aluminum billets. The powertrain has no water passages and the usual running time is quite short (less than four seconds) so there is no need for a liquid cooling system. The power to hit those intense speeds are made possible with the help from 90 percent nitromethane and 10 percent alcohol. Within a single run, there are will be 20 gallons of that mix used. Nitro is the perfect “rocket fuel” thanks to a number of key ingredients. That combo is able to burn better than gasoline in a way that generates 2.3 times more power, which allows the Funny Car powertrain to work without any liquid cooling system. 

Other Interesting Facts

Oddly enough, the Funny Car does not contain a transmission other than one device that allows the Funny Car to back up after a prelaunch burnout. There is a wing that is attached to the body made of carbon-fiber. This wing is designed to generate maximum downforce with little drag. There are also no instruments inside the funny car except a launch and steer with a tiny throttle pedal and clutch. The driver has a hand brake to use and that’s about all inside the Funny Car. Not quite as luxurious or roomy as the interior of Dodge muscle cars that might not hit 11,000 horsepower, but our readers can get a muscle car with over 700 horsepower in many options including the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, among other choices available at Miami Lakes Automall.

Look Out Florida Drivers, FHP Has New Dodge Muscle

Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: FHP

Florida Highway Patrol has taken the approach that to capture criminals and stop would-be assailants on the highways, they should saddle up their fleet with the latest Dodge muscle cars. Details regarding the FHP Dodge Challenger are limited but, upon closer inspection of the solitary photo tweeted out by FHP Troop G in Jacksonville, Florida as it appears the Challenger is the R/T trim. We believe this might be true as it is listed as having the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 powertrain, which is beneficial for 372 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Let’s look into the latest Challenger made for the Florida Highway Patrol.

More Details From FHP

Taking a look at the FHP’s 2019 Dodge Challenger is unquestionably awesome, it’s not the only police vehicle that looks remarkably sleek. Around the world, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has supplied their vehicles to those in authority. In Italy, the Italian police departments have a passion for Jeeps. Italy’s Carabinieri police use the Jeep Wrangler and Italy’s Polizia di Stato police drive a Jeep Renegade. As far as the United States goes, we know a thing or two about the Dodge muscle cars here. For drivers that are interested in the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T trim, they will gain standard 20″ black aluminum wheels, Panasonic 360-degree HD cameras, and driver and front passenger heated seats and seatbacks. The FHP Challenger will have some features that are not included, like a “new lighting package,” which means the car has LED red-and-blue police lights. The 2019 Dodge Challenger offers 7 trims to choose from. The SXT trim is the base trim, the GT follows and the RT trim follows that. For those looking for the highest trim, step into the SRT Hellcat trims.

Dodge Challenger Models State Side

In the United States, police cars have developed dramatically since the Ford Crown Vic, and Chevy Caprice was patrolling the streets. In a lone tweet from the FHP, they declared the streets and highways will be seen by their eyes and gave a stern warning to the masses. 

“As you can see, we take aggressive driving seriously! Please slow down, buckle up, reduce distractions. We are watching.” – FHP.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger ready to handle the extremes of highway chases. To the criminals who think they can beat out a Dodge Challenger. Good luck to them!

A Look Into Dodge From Within

Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

While many know Dodge for creating some of the fastest production vehicles, those in charge of the brand know exactly what they are and what they are not. Dodge has introduced a wave of the fastest muscle cars with their newest Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger entries. They have the Dodge Journey that mixes together luxury with the capabilities of high-speed thrills in their SRT (street racing technology) trim. But where does Dodge see its self heading in the upcoming decade? More than just making an electric future a reality, those in charge have thought long and hard about where to take this high-octane brand.

 “Love it or hate it, Dodge has an identity that separates it from the pack,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars.

The State of Dodge

In 2019, cars seem to be disappearing in the automotive industry. Dodge possesses the antidote to keep a car around: make an excellent car and keep the nameplate secure by introducing muscular modifications, aesthetic treatments, and new packages. Technically, the Dodge Challenger has not updated its frame since 2008.  However, the Challenger has added the Demon, Redeye, and Dodge Challenger Scat Pack 1320, among others. Fans of the Dodge brand love these high-powered muscle cars that contain over 700 horsepower, including up to 840 horsepower in the aforementioned SRT Demon. While the Demon was discontinued, the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye boasts 797 horsepower and costs way less. 

“When we did the Demon, I honest to God thought that was the muscle-car mic drop. As soon as we did it, we were like, ‘What else you got?’” said Tim Kuniskis. 

Upcoming 50th Anniversary of the Dodge Challenger

There are some upcoming hallmarks Dodge is getting ready to celebrate. 2019 makes the 50th anniversary of the Dodge Challenger, we’re anticipating to see anniversary editions. In just the past ten years, Dodge has witnessed a 60 percent jump in Challenger and Charger sales, with the Challenger hitting their best sales mark ever in 2018. Regardless of the platform, there are no plans to abandon them since the demand is there. The Dodge Durango has fit the brand as a top choice for those looking for a three-row SUV that never feels like one. Will Dodge create a smaller SUV?

“I’m not going to lie to you and tell you it’s perfectly aligned with the direction that the brand’s headed. But it’s a great-looking car in a great segment that sells extremely well, so I see no problem with Journey,”  remarked Tim Kuniskis.

The 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody is the most powerful and fastest production sedan in the world, FCA photo credit.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has always looked to push the boundaries with their Dodge brand. In the latest expansion of their Dodge muscle car line-up, that’s precisely what they will do when the new 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody and Scat Pack Widebody debut. Labeled by FCA as the Fastest Mass-produced Sedan in the world, the best part of the new Charger entries is they will satisfy what customers wanted. Many have clamored for a widebody for the Dodge Charger, the sedan version of the famous Dodge Challenger, to gain a widebody since it had been neglected for the past two years. 

Start Your Widebody Engines!

Debuting with the 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody, back-to-back years of the widebody frame have made fans of the tighter handling and broader frame. Gaining a better grip on the track and holding turns easier than before helped the SRT Hellcat Widebody hit faster times on the track. Plus, the look of this vehicle is stunning. A massive beast in the wings, waiting for a driver to test out the pure power and performance that is offered with every measure while driving. All 707 horsepower is used to promoted high-octane thrills while driving anywhere thanks to the impressive 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 engine. Drivers will enjoy the roar of hitting 0-60 mpg in just 3.6 seconds and its quarter-mile clip of a mere 10.96 seconds. 

Not Just Fast, But Quite the Looker

The 2020 Dodge Challenger is immaculate in appearance with its flush design that draws attention thanks to its bold look. The Charger Widebody added 3.5-inches for both the front and rear tires. An oversized fender flare made Dodge opt for new Pirelli rubber tires that stretch to 305 widths at each corner. Brembo 6-piston front calipers with a two-piece brake rotor was added to the suspension, which is supplied with three damping modes; Strip, Street, and Road Course. For those who love to race, Dodge added new ways to bolster performance. A new Race Cooldown option that allows the driver to protect their vehicle has been added. 

“Race Cooldown keeps cooling the supercharger/charge air cooler after the engine is shut off by running the intercooler pump and radiator fan.” according to a statement by Dodge. 

More 2020 Dodge Charger Widebody Facts

First added to the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody and Scat Pack Widebody will have the Launch Assist and Launch Control features. Drivers will be able to easily access a switch on the dashboard that will control tire slip when moving the vehicle to provide straight-line acceleration and keep the wheel hop limited as muscle car can modify the engine torque to regain full grip.

Launch Your Summer With a New Dodge Challenger

Dodge Challenger Miami Lakes Automall

For those who are more excited to jump into their muscle car than anything else or want to spring into a new ride that is sleek and exhilarating, consider Dodge as the choice. Drivers everywhere wish to embrace their car as purchasing a vehicle is one of the most significant investments anyone can make. Dodge muscle cars are the end game for all things fast and for a good reason. Begin the escape with a new Challenger, offering many trims and different levels of excellence. The high-end 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is beyond detailed with an unrivaled 790 horsepower from the 6.2-Liter HEMI V8  and a dual hood air intake. Go from 0-60 in only 3.4 seconds! How is this possible?

Dodge Perfects Their Launch Control

Dodge improved their Launch Control feature with the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. At the time the since retired muscle car was the most powerful production vehicle on the market, a title now held by the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Consider the power offered by the 650 lb-ft of torque and ability to soar past 200 mph effortlessly, the high-end Challenger is not for the faint of heart. How is that possible? Line Lock was made to engage the front breaks, but not the rear wheels so the vehicle can build up speed without any burnout. However, drivers don’t need a high-end Challenger to enjoy one of the best features made by Dodge. The Launch Control feature enables a driver to hold their Dodge muscle car anywhere from five to up to 10 seconds for the optimal launch with a consistently straight line dispatch. With so many features customizable, luckily this is one feature that comes standard for the 2019 Dodge Challenger.

Things To Consider When Shopping For a Challenger

The 2019 Challenger comes in seven significant trims ranging from the SXT, GT, R/T, R/T 392, SRT Hellcat and the SRT Hellcat Redeye. Only the SXT and GT have a V6 engine, but the rest gain a V8 engine. Unique styling differences and performance measures are what separate each trim and variations. The SRT Hellcat also carries a dual-snorkel feature that pushes up the horsepower to 717 horsepower, 10 more horsepower than the previous model year. The SRT Hellcat Redeye is extremely detailed and even the Hellcat logo carries a “Redeye” to showcase the tremendous attention to every feature about this fantastic muscle car.

Internet Is a Frenzy on Yellow Splitter Guards on Dodge Muscle Cars

Splitter Miami Lakes Automall

Every now and then, certain vehicles catch the attention of the public and gain serious traction. We’ve noticed one particular item of interest for buyers and readers when it comes to our Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger models. For those who are buying a new Dodge muscle car, we want to inform our customers we do, in fact, leave the yellow splitter guards on. An eyesore to true motorheads, but something appealing to quite a few car buyers, we have all the facts on both sides. For the pros and cons of the splitter guards, let’s go over them and share the truth behind a subject that has become a trending topic lately.

Dodge Splitter Guards?

First off, what is a splitter guard? Dodge places protective yellow splitter guards on vehicles that are shipped out directly from the factory onto large 18-wheelers to be delivered at dealerships across the United States. At Miami Lakes Automall, we actually leave the splitter guards on as they are protecting the splitter and help keep the vehicle safe when being loaded and transported. We believe the customer has the choice to take them off or leave them on, based on their preference. The Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger will have them, for those curious.

Is It Safe to Keep a Splitter Guard On?

100% safe. Splitter guards are made to help protect the vehicle they are attached to. Removing them is easy, but keep in mind, while some see them as a decorative fashion piece, others don’t. However, one thing that is agreed upon from both sides is they are protective and help keep from any scrapes hitting on the side. Safety is not the question when it comes to splitter guards. It’s purely a matter of automotive taste.

Do Splitter Guards Come In Other Colors?

No. Unfortunately, there is only one color for the splitter guards. Yellow is the color of caution as the splitter guards take care of our vehicles when they are brought onto our lot. We would want to have the vehicle look as polished and protected as possible. Maybe one day there might be other colors, but for now, the answer is no. Splitter guards are sold on eBay for close to $100, which is something to keep in mind.

Why Leave the Splitter Guard On?

This is how we aim to present the vehicle and allow the customer to enjoy their experience of getting some of the fastest and most powerful cars with no alterations by us. For those who want to keep them on for a while, as a customer might do with a sticker on a new hat, we let the owner decide when to remove the plastic yellow splitters. It’s also not illegal to keep them on and drive with them, either. Protecting the low-mounted splitter of a vehicle is important to many drivers. Having a splitter guard will help to ensure there are no marks on the vehicle when parking or driving up or down steep parking ramps.

The Choice Is Yours

Want to know what it’s like to drive with a new Dodge muscle car? We have them at Miami Lakes Automall. Come check out the new Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger muscle cars available today. From our new to our pre-owned vehicles, there’s a wide selection. If you’re looking for pricing options, our financing team can support you for any buying or leasing needs.

Our Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram sales and service departments are open seven days a week to better serve you. See you soon!

Dodge Charger Gains New SRT Hellcat Octane Edition Package

Octane Edition Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: FCA

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has done it again. A brand new Dodge Charger special edition is set to come out in 2019. Dodge has always found a way to make their muscle car collection even stronger and better. The latest edition is no exception. The 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Octane Edition makes a statement and a truly unique looking vehicle that stands out anywhere it goes. There are only two color options that will come with this new SRT Hellcat, either a “Pitch Black” or “White Knuckle”. Both feature solid colors with dual-stripes that run all the way down from the bottom of the bumper to the end of the truck. Let’s get into the other details that help make this special edition Charger stand out.

The Latest Hellcat In the Dodge Collection

Before 2019, Dodge did not have an SRT Hellcat for the Charger. Now, the Charger is gaining its very own special edition that is worthy of praise and admiration. Under the hood owners will find the 707 horsepower 6.2-Liter HEMI V8 Charger Hellcat engine with an engaging appearance throughout. The powertrain equips 650 lb-ft of torque and takes only 3.6 seconds to go 0-60. That’s wicked speed for any owner to enjoy!

Blacked Out Miami Lakes Automall

More on the Appearance and Design

Aside from the black center stripe, the Charger carries red accent stripes that line the vehicle. With the new SRT Hellcat Octane Edition, drivers receive a sleek looking muscle car with black badges, gloss black interior accents, black wheels, and heavy-duty red Brembo brakes. The decklid is all black and the rear spoiler is finished in a Satin Black finish. The color scheme is complete with red stitching throughout the entire interior. The instrumental panel adds a noticeable black-on-black Hellcat badge and the red accent colors are found on the seat belts as well.

Special Octane Edition Pricing

The price of this new special edition? Only 1,495 on top of the price for the 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat price point of $65,545 MSRP (plus destination fee). The fans of Dodge muscle cars will take notice of this unique package. This Charger will gain the same black 20-inch aluminum forged wheels and red six-piston calipers that come with the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320. Owners of this vehicle will enjoy not only incredible precision in both design and handling but they will also have one of the fastest production vehicles ever made.

FCA To Merge With Renault In Massive Deal

Renault FCA Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: FCA

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) was searching for another company to make a splash in the automotive industry with a large scale merger. They finally found the right company to make a cannonball of a splash with the new agreement with Renault. FCA will be securing in their words a “transformative merger” with the French automotive company, Renault, to merge effective May 2019. What does this mean for the automotive industry? This new company, yet to be named, will represent that 3rd biggest global original equipment manufacturer (OEM).

This merge also entails this new company will become the 4th biggest automotive company in North America and 2nd in Europe. The organizations have agreed in principle to distribute their public shareholders equally. This new company will display full market coverage of vehicles covering a wide range of “mainstream to luxurious” options for consumers to enjoy. Let’s break down a little more about what to expect going forward for FCA.

A Landmark Deal

The first statement listing the intentions of both brands came out to the public in a statement by FCA. FCA made the first move when they issued a non-binding letter to the Board of Groupe Renault, which was approved. Both companies remain poised to grow their sales and remain ahead of the many oppositions with this deal. FCA stated their five-year-plan back in 2018 to become more of a global force for both electrification and autonomous driving. This deal proves they were serious as Renault is well known for their work in making electrification one of their hallmarks. FCA stated their desire to “identify” products and places where they would best be served to collude the newest and most advanced technologies. Adding to the list of wants, FCA also satisfies their aim to grow globally by going with “bold decisions to capture at scale the opportunities created by the transformation of the auto industry”, FCA addressed in their latest report to the press and shareholders.

Upcoming Agenda Going Forward For FCA

Both Renault and FCA know they have their work cut out for them since large scale mergers are something both companies are familiar with. This is actually going to raise their value and total sales net worth with the figure set to be a $35 billion deal. Their joined business would sell more than 8.7 million vehicles yearly, including innovative muscle cars, SUVs, pickups, minivans as well as light commercial vehicles.

“Our proposed merger with Renault will create the potential to build a global partnership with all three of these great companies during this period of unprecedented transformation in our industry.” -John Elkann, Chairman of FCA.

What To Expect Next

The intention is to further expand FCA’s general interest for consumers in a global setting, where they have yet to really become a staple. FCA confirmed neither company would be able to gain a more significant role in the global market as a company alone. FCA, known for their Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, and Ram brands among others is thrilled to have this deal finished. This is in large part due to Renault making strides with zero-emissions electronic vehicles and their global outreach. This merger is going to add quite a bit of value for each company as they become one of the most potent automotive companies; its a win-win for consumers as well.

More Good News

Both brands say they will not lose any productive plants that are currently operating. FCA is excited to expand its brands, as both companies will work out the final details over the coming months. Anticipate more stories to come out of this landmark deal in 2019 and beyond. For anyone a fan of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and their automotive brands, they will be in for a pleasant surprise in the near future. Want to see the latest FCA products with our help?

Head of Dodge Brand, Steve Beahm, Retires

Steve FCA Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has undergone massive changes in leadership in the past year since the passing of former CEO Sergio Marchionne on July 25tth, 2018. New Jeep Brand head Christian Meunier has been announced and now FCA has big shoes to fill for their head of the Dodge brand. Steve Beahm, who has been with FCA and Dodge since 2008 has formerly retired and leaves behind years of excellence helping the Dodge brand grow. These changes will go a long way for a company that is looking to gain a stronger global presence.

Inside the Changes at FCA

Steve Beahm took over as the FCA Head of Passenger Car Brands (Dodge, Fiat, and Chrysler) back in February 2018, he helped launch the remarkable 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Beahm, who also became the head of Mopar in North America, has been replaced by Mark Bosanac. Boscanac was previously head of supply chain management and FCA so far has not announced a new head of passenger cars. These moves will begin the next phase of the five-year-plan outlined last year by Marchionne and FCA’s goal to focus on expanding each brand and add more electronic vehicles (EV) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) additions.

Where Dodge Has Been and Where It’s Headed

Dodge is a brand that under Beahm’s guidance focused on the ability to craft high-performance vehicles as his responsibilities included sales and marketing for Dodge, SRT (street racing technology), Chrysler and Fiat. He made sure to break the mold of previous campaigns by adding a high-named talent like Bill Goldberg to become “Mayor of Muscleville” in a recent campaign and instilled the idea of pushing the envelope. 797-horsepower engines and a “Hellephant” 426 supercharged crate HEMI that produces 1,000 horsepower were two projects closely watched by Beahm.

After years behind the scenes for sales and incentives, Beahm helped to find ways to get the Dodge brand excited about the products despite no major overhaul or change to their iconic muscle cars. It’s been over 10 years for both the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger since they have undergone any major change with only minor refreshes taking place over the years.

That longevity is almost unheard of in today’s auto market with the landscape of strong, powerful muscle cars and coupes becoming more and more a thing of the past. The future will be an exciting time for FCA.

The Mopar Hellephante Crate Is Officially Sold Out!

Hellephante Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Mopar

Owners of classic muscle cars take pride in their prized possessions and rightfully so. While hearing the word “classic” might sound old and obsolete, don’t judge a book by its cover. Old school Dodge muscle cars could have the all-new Mopar Hellephante crate engine installed in their classic ride.  Mopar announced all of their Hellephante crates have sold out! The monstrous 1,000 horsepower, 950 lb-ft of torque crate engine was sold out in less than two weeks time. For owners of Dodge muscle cars that desired a colossal upgrade, there isn’t an alternative that would allow for greater horsepower and strength. This is the kind of powertrain that will be embraced the world over from drag racers and street muscle car fanatics alike. Easily the most dominant crate motor made by an OEM (original equipment manufacturer). So, what does the Hellephante crate provide?

A Special Engine For a Reason

The origins of the Hellephante crate go back to a previous generation powertrain made by Mopar. Named the Gen III HEMI V8, Mopar has created 426 cubic inches of the new Hellephante with a 4.0-inch bore that affords plenty of cylinder wall depth joined with a 4.125 crankshaft. With an aluminum block, forged pistons and value covers right out of the SRT Hellcat Redeye, owners of the Hellephante will enjoy a unique engine that adds an enhanced supercharger over the current Hellcat. Mopar also throws together a kit to assist buyers to add the engine smoothly, including wiring,  a throttle pedal, O2 sensors, and an ECU that is tuned and able to go. The Hellephante crate also comprises of front-end accessory drive kit that joins the alternator and power steering pump with the required pulleys and belt. The entire package is ready to go and is probably stocked already in many muscle cars on drag strips around the world.

Everyone Wants a Hellephante Crate

A lot of people were looking to add this mega-powerful engine due to its incredible high-performance power and 1,000 horsepower. Now, the only drawback from owning a piece of this fantastic engine is the cost. The price for this massive powertrain is $29,995 MSRP. We hope our readers keep in mind how this engine immediately enhances any vehicle to a wild amount of horsepower and torque. In fact, the original 426 HEMI with only 425 horsepower was forbidden by NASCAR. The Hellephante crate is an elite item and quite rare since only 1,000 customers were lucky enough to add one. The announcement of this crate came on National HEMI Day, April 26th, 2019. It’s not a surprise that before two weeks could pass, this one came and went.

What Vehicles Can Drive With the Hellephante?

Driving with a high-powered engine like the one included in the Hellephante is sure to bring attention and joy for those lucky owners who were able to purchase one. Although, we want our readers to know this crate is for any pre-1976 Dodge muscle car and could not be added to newer Dodge muscle cars.

Dodge Challenger Outselling Chevy Camaro For the First Time

2019 Dodge Challenger Miami Lakes

Photo credit: Dodge

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has started 2019 with great success against their closest rival, Chevrolet, with victory in their Dodge and Ram brand. The first quarter sales results have shown FCA’s Ram 1500 pickup, and Dodge Challenger outsold the Chevrolet Silverado pickup and Chevrolet Camaro. 2019 hasn’t just been a good year in terms of sales, it’s been a record year as Dodge notched their highest sales totals since 2008. The Dodge Challenger has now outsold the Chevy Camaro for the first time ever. So, what explains this sudden leap of popularity? We know most of it is based on the continued high-performance offered top customers, stronger and faster choices and the fantastic job by FCA and Dodge to keep improving.

The Dodge Brand Never Settles

The last several years, Dodge has introduced some of the fastest muscle cars in the history of the brand. First with the Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the Hellcat Widebody, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and the most recent SRT (street racing technology) vehicle, the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Each of these vehicles has propelled the brand further ahead and supplied customers with over 700 horsepower in each vehicle, pushing the limits every year with faster final products. To anyone who has felt the rush of the massive V8 engines inside the latest Dodge Challenger, they would know why Dodge has continued to gain buyers.

The 2018 total sales show the Challenger exceeded the greatest-selling year the Challenger ever set in 2015 (66,716 sold versus 66,365 vehicles in 2015). Both of those numbers were higher than the Chevrolet Camaro’s total sales of 50,963 vehicles sold in 2018. The Dodge Challenger was the only muscle car on the market to receive a year-over-year gain, Motor1.com reported. What will 2019 bring about for the Dodge Challenger?

2019 Is Another Banner Year for Dodge

The reports have come in for the first quarter, showing that 2019 might be even better than in 2018. Through three months, Kelley Blue Book reports that the Dodge Challenger sold 13,431 vehicles ahead of Chevrolet’s Camaro with 12,083 vehicles sold. The Dodge Challenger hasn’t had a massive overhaul in terms of its frame and greater design in 11 years, but rather seen updates through the interior and under-the-hood. The future of Dodge will most likely include even faster and more powerful vehicles, but only time will tell.

We do know there will an electric future for the Dodge brand. Could Dodge unseat the Ford Mustang in the future for the number one spot? The Chevrolet Camaro was ahead for years, but today the Dodge Challenger is more popular and perhaps this momentum will continue for Dodge to overtake Ford at some point in the next decade. We’ll see, but for those looking to drive the latest Dodge SRT vehicles, coming to Miami Lakes Automall is the right choice.

The Dodge Challenger Scat Pack 1320 Named Drag Strip Worthy

Dodge 1320 Miami Lakes

Photo credit: 6speed

Dodge has a fresh face that will be joining the ranks of other muscle cars on the drag strip. Street-legal and able to compete with the best of the best according to the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 has been approved to hit the circuit. Not many vehicles on the road today can be driven safely on the road and compete in NHRA’s Stock and Super Stock Sportsman class racing. Wondering what makes this Challenger capable of drag racing?

What Makes the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 Special?

Dodge engineers high-performance muscle cars that are fast. The Challenger R/T Scat Pack is one of the strongest and fastest products ever made by Dodge. Starting with its hunky HEMI V8 engine that produces 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque and provides a quarter-time of 11.70 seconds at a top speed of 115 mph. This is all packed into a sleek looking design that demands attention. People have definitely noticed as the Dodge Challenger outsold the Chevrolet Camaro in 2018 as well as the first quarter of 2019 with no signs of slowing down. The Challenger moved 13,431 vehicles ahead of the Chevrolet Camaro sales of 12,083 vehicles sold. That was the first year in the Dodge brand’s history to outsell the Camaro. Not only did Dodge earn second behind the Ford Mustang, but the Mustang has also seen slumping sales every year for four straight years.  In 2015 the Mustang sold over 115,000 vehicles, but they finished 2018 with fewer than 75,000 Mustang muscle cars sold. Look for Dodge to continue pushing for the top spot as their innovation leads the way for customers.

“The first generation of Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger are the top collected vehicles in North America and transcend all generations. People have speculated about the death of the American muscle car since the mid-1970s, but the golden age of American muscle is happening right now in terms of horsepower and overall performance,” said Jonathan Klinger, spokesperson for Hagerty, the Traverse City-based collector car insurance and valuation company.

Hit the Strip With the R/T Scat Pack

Looking for a ride that can take you to work and yet still be cleared for competition on the weekends? For some, that’s the ideal choice. Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 includes a class weight break of 8.72 and carry a minimum weight of 3,400 pounds. Drivers planning to race at an NHRA event must meet all rule and regulations expected for the category they hope to participate in. The Scat Pack 1320 was also granted entrance to be admitted upon modification to join the private NHRA Stock Eliminator competition. The Challenger 1320 has received a “B” stock category. Luckily, the modification of the vehicle is not required for access racing in the National Muscle Car Association events.

Get Stung By the Angry Bee

The “Angry Bee” design brings about an impeccable design, showcased on a badge that shows a buzzing bee placed on the front fenders, on the instrument panel, as well as the headlamps. The Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is expected to hit dealerships around the United States soon. The special package that improves upon the R/T Scat Pack, the 1320 version is faster by .03 seconds in the quarter-mile with a time of 11.70 seconds as well as 0.3 seconds going from 0-60 mph acceleration time, done in a mere 3.8 seconds.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 Package is an additional $3,995, which begins at $38,995 MSRP (plus destination fee) for the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack. The mandatory automatic transmission attaches $1,595 as well. Owners will receive complimentary, one-year memberships in the NHRA and NMCA for the 2019 season to allow for drag racing privileges and getting to be around other muscle cars that can go as fast as the “Angry Bee” can, or at least they can try.

The New Red, White, and Blue: Drive the Dodge Stars & Stripes Edition Muscle

2019 Dodge Stars Miami Lakes

All-American Performance: Dodge Salutes U.S. Armed Forces with Stars & Stripes Edition on Challenger and Charger

Dodge is welcoming service members and fans of the military to get a taste and sneak-preview of their all-new Stars & Stripes special edition package. The special edition package will be available for both the 2019 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger models. These prized muscle cars are going to be first shown at the 2019 New York International Auto Show opening on Friday, April 19th through Sunday, April 28th, 2019. Dodge declared their Stars & Stripes special edition vehicles will be available to reserve in May 2019 and hit dealerships nationwide later in the summer.

Step Into the Stars & Stripes Package

The Stars & Stripes package will provide these muscle cars with a detailed and polished look. The color choices are not the typical American red, white and blue, but instead, Dodge has given these vehicles a robust military appearance with the green and silver body color display. Each model will come with various aesthetic interior upgrades, including gloss black interior accents, unique black-on-black cloth seats. Dodge added an embroidered bronze star, a bronze instrument panel, and sharp bronze stitching into the whole interior. This is a vehicle that any military service member should consider, especially if they want some pure muscle car fun with each drive. The distinctive feature is a long matte, satin black and silver accent stripe that stretches across the middle of the vehicle. Many will note the American flag fender decals and 20-inch gloss black wheels, black badging and the fact this package isn’t for the base trims on either vehicle.

“We have a strong following of buyers who are in the military, as well as many buyers who are patriotic,” Steve Beahm, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Head of Passenger-Car Brands.

Feel the Awesome Power of Dodge Muscle

Customers can’t go wrong with either vehicle they decide on. The 2019 Dodge Charger is the fastest-sedan muscle car available today, and the 2019 Dodge Challenger presents a two-door experience that is comparable for owners. Both vehicles offer extraordinary speed, high-performance engine power and an outstanding ride to enjoy.  The GT trims carry the well-known and trusted Pentastar 3.6-Liter V6 engine that produces 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque for the 2019 Charger and 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft in the 2019 Challenger. A step up from the GT are the R/T trims, which have the mightier 5.7-Liter V8 engine that outfits 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque for both the Challenger and Charger. The Scat Pack trim combines the even more notable strength as the powertrain supplied is a 6.4-Liter V8 that drives up to 485 horsepower with 475 lb-ft of torque for both vehicles. Now that’s some serious muscle any Dodge fan can enjoy.

Select Special Edition Pricing

For those considering this special edition package, the Stars & Stripes edition is available for an extra $1,995 for the following models: 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack and Charger Scat Pack; 2019 Dodge Challenger and Charger R/T models; and 2019 Dodge Challenger and Charger GT RWD models. Good news for any active or retired military service members, Dodge will offer a $500 military bonus cash incentive on select purchases and leases. This discount is available thanks to the FCA Honoring Those Who Serve program. When contemplating if either the Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger is a perfect choice, we know where you can go to test them out and be better informed.

Dodge Durango Remains Ahead of the Competition

2019 Dodge Durango Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

The 2019 Dodge Durango has a certain type of owner. Those who want the luxurious interior with the monster of an engine under the hood opt for the Durango over every large SUV in the segment. With many options in the category of three-row SUVs, few can contend with America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV. The HEMI V8 powertrain option provides the driver with 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Dodge is known for its high-performance engineering and remarkable towing capabilities embodied in the Durango. Those who want to feel like they are driving behind a muscle car and less like a large SUV, we recommend the high-end 2019 Dodge Durango SRT trim. Ready to find out why the Durango is ahead of the rest of the large SUV segment?

More on the Latest Dodge Durango

When selecting the right Dodge Durango, consider the various trims and powertrain options. There are three engine options for the Durango and five trim levels.

This engine is paired to the TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission and provides a best-in-class V6 highway fuel economy of 30 MPG.

Providing best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque, all of that power gives the 2019 Dodge Durango quite a strong powertrain option. The 5.7-Liter engine comes with the R/T and extends a solid gas mileage rating of 25 mpg. The HEMI V8 powertrain incorporates variable valve timing technology (VVT). For energy-conscious drivers, the beauty of VVT is how it saves gas (and money for drivers) as it pairs with a multi-displacement system that maintains gas and contributes to higher fuel efficiency when driving.

Haul just about anything a best-in-class towing capacity of 8,700 maximum towing. Not just fast and strong, let’s get into why the Durango has won many customers over.

The Most Luxurious SUV On the Market For A Reason

Something to consider when buying any modern vehicle is just how good is the interior? The 2019 Dodge Durango interior pulls out all the stops with a remarkable 825-watt, 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. This system has a rich sound and provides an enclosed audio experience available for the R/T, Citadel and SRT trim. The 2019 Dodge Durango offers comfortable seating for up to seven passengers and available Captain’s chairs are available for the second row for an advanced luxury feel. Dodge has aimed at offering more than just a powerful high-performance vehicle three-row SUV. They wanted to supply drivers with an immersive vehicle experience from top to bottom.

“The Durango is our three-row Charger of the SUV segment, delivering uncompromised utility, advanced technology, class-leading towing and driving range, confident driving dynamics and aggressive styling. Customer demand for utility vehicles in the United States has exploded over the past decade. Dodge Durango continues to separate itself from the competition with the performance and capability that our customers demand,” Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America.

The Best Time To Buy a Dodge Muscle Car Is Now

2019 Dodge Group Miami Lakes Automall

With a large portion of vehicles sold each day belonging to the SUV/crossover variety and a growing number of sales going to large pickup trucks, where have the fans of the muscle car gone? Many reasons are contributing to the fact that muscle cars have diminished slightly. That is good news for those who want to buy a muscle car! Despite the temporary hold Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) placed on Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger vehicles from their factories, there has never been a better time to seek out a new muscle car.

Fans Can’t Wait For the Next Special Dodge Vehicle

Dodge has gone to great lengths to hype up their latest lineup, but the one move that will help them the most is the growing exclusivity of their high-performance muscle cars. In fact, the latest April Fool’s Day joke was speculation of a new 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Ghoul. While no official word has been placed, CarBuzz.com claimed this story to be factual. We’ll wait and see, but the number of responses has generated hype for a muscle car that might not exist. The newest attraction will be the 2020 Dodge Charger Widebody that is set to debut later in 2019. Fans will start to wonder when the next special, surprising milestone muscle car will arrive though, as we can only speculate with them. But, we do know this current climate is a unique time for the Dodge brand.

Present Day: The SRT Glory Years

The past several years have rewarded fans of Dodge and muscle cars with the likes of the Dodge brand incorporating their SRT (Street Racing Technology) into the Hellcat, the 2018 Dodge SRT Demon and the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. These vehicles pushed the boundaries of muscle cars and production vehicles as a whole. Where else can a driver gain 797 horsepower (SRT Hellcat Redeye) or 840 horsepower (SRT Demon) for less than $90,000? The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has sold out, but there are still some SRT Hellcat Redeye options available. In time, that special top-tier trim will become a rare commodity gaining value with each year that passes.

In fact, we haven’t even seen the greatest that these past models can do. Just this month in April 2019 footage was released that showed the Dodge SRT Demon with the optional Demon Crate hitting over 211 miles per hour at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds. Exceptional! That’s what makes these Dodge muscle cars that spectacular.

Times Change, But Dodge Muscle Remains Highly Valued

As more and more vehicles are opting to push the limits of technology and better fuel economy ratings, Dodge has placed an emphasis on breaking their own records with faster and stronger vehicles. Will this trend continue? The heritage and special bond owners make their vehicle are not unique to the Dodge brand, but few vehicle brands have a following as Dodge has. There are more reasons to discover, but perhaps the fastest way to know why is to experience how much fun it feels to have a Dodge muscle car and feel the immense power and drive offered by the premier muscle car automaker. There is a reason Dodge has been around nearly 120 years and they are just getting started with their SRT vehicles (around since 2011) as they move into a new decade of dominance. Looking to drive a new muscle car? There is no place for Dodge muscle quite like Miami Lakes Automall.

Traffic and bad drivers are assured no matter what when driving in South Florida, but distracted driving is something that FCA has helped to curb with their innovation.

Why UConnect?

Officially adopted by Chrysler, FIAT, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram vehicles and has continually updated features to help assure drivers and passengers have an excellent experience every time they drive any FCA brand vehicle.

1,400 Horsepower Dodge SRT Demon? Yes, please.

Speedkore Demon Miami Lakes

Few vehicles need to be improved upon, and one of those is the incredible 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Increasing areas like speed and velocity for a vehicle that provided a stock quarter-mile time under 10 seconds, that’s just not something that needed to be done! This is genuinely not the vehicle to enhance. However, that didn’t stop Speedkore from getting their hands on one and making it more of a Demon. The fastest, mightiest Dodge Challenger has just been crafted. With only a lone year of production for the world’s fastest production muscle car, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon had a limited run of just 3,300 vehicles. Speedkore Performance Group got their hands on one and got to work, replacing the supercharger 6.2-Liter HEMI V8 engine to give it twin-turbos. We’re not making this up.

Exactly How Much Fastest Did They Make the SRT Demon?

There wasn’t any reason to need to touch the engine of the SRT Demon. The biggest reason for that is it was already at 840 horsepower and produced 717 lb-ft of torque. That’s not only impressive, but it’s also dangerous with the wrong driver behind the wheel as this beast was famous for requiring a waiver to be driven! Speedkore Performance Group took the challenge to make this vehicle even better with goals to take it to the 2019 SEMA show happening in Las Vegas later in 2019. They started by replacing the body panels with carbon fiber (which they had previously done to the vehicle before, but that was just the start for this new SRT Demon project). After replacing the body panels with carbon fiber and pulling out the supercharger engine for two new 6875 Precision Billet ball-bearing T4 turbochargers. Transforming the engine to include a twin turbo setup is what makes this newsworthy is just how much more horsepower the twin turbos generate. The intensified SRT Demon now gets around 1,400 horsepower at the flywheel and exactly 1,203 horsepower at the rear wheels. Wicked!

More On the Impressive Speedkore Demon

The majority of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is mostly the same aside from the look and what’s under the hood. Among the new additions included were new carbon fiber additions, new hood pins, side-mounted exhausts on either side of the front bumper. This transformed Dodge SRT Demon weighs less and moves way quicker. Perhaps the most improbable aspect was how the Speedkore Performance Group was able to make their SRT Demon almost a second faster when racing in a quarter-mile. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon stock hit an exceptionally fast time of 9.65 seconds, while the Speedkore Demon ran a mind-blowing time of just 8.77 seconds in the quarter-mile.  

Improving On the Original

Thought the Speedkore Performance Group had improved on the Demon with the carbon fiber additional, this was the first time they added a twin-turbo. Their latest revamping effort to make the Demon fastest and advance the boundaries of horsepower and velocity for the SRT Demon is surprising, to say the least. How much fastest could this particular muscle car get? We know today just how much scarier the Demon could be!

For those who want to check out this improved, monstrous SRT Demon, check out Speedkore’s showcase at the 2019 SEMA show going on October 30th through November 2nd in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first twin-turbo Dodge SRT Demon will appear and fans will get the chance to see it up close and in person. However, to drive a vehicle as fast as the impressive Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, there are few choices like it. The good news is Miami Lakes Automall has them!

FCA Has A Lot of Jobs To Fill In 2019

Jeep Wrangler Miami Lakes

Photo credit: Jeep

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has made significant proposals by funding $4.5 billion into their future with 6,500 fresh jobs to be added in just Detriot and Macomb, Michigan. This was an effort that was spearheaded by CEO of FCA, Mike Manley, and he worked with the Governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, to help generate this large number of jobs. Exactly 5,000 jobs are to be added in Detriot. This figure includes 3,850 positions at FCA’s Mack Avenue Engine plant, which is going to be transformed into a Jeep assembly factory to help create the latest Jeep vehicles like the Grand Wagoneer set to debut in the next couple years.

Regarding the remaining 1,400 jobs, they are anticipated to be continued for FCA’s Warren Truck Plant. Specifically, 1,100 jobs are going to be provided at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant with 80 or more posts set at Sterling Stamping. The exact details are being addressed by the auto executives, Detroit, and Michigan economic development officials in regards to land use and tax policy that will be hatched till May 2019.

Report of New FCA Jobs

The good news for those looking for work, there are plenty of jobs available. Requirements are for those18 or older should apply if they have at least a high school diploma or equivalent. These new jobs will be added as they become open. FCA regularly adds skilled trade positions which are currently being advertised. Later in 2019, there will be more jobs added once the agreements are made. Applications for hourly positions will be accepted once positions are posted. Wages are expected to be $17 an hour for non-skilled hourly jobs. Moody’s Investors Service, in a new report, believes FCA’s investment to be a massive boost to the city of Detriot.

“The announcement is the latest in a flurry of news about jobs coming and going in the auto sector and signals that the city is poised to preserve or grow its share of the industry’s employment base. While over-reliance on the sector carries risks for Detroit and the regional economy, the FCA expansion is credit positive for the city, which remains heavily dependent on economically sensitive revenues including income tax receipts.” said the report released by FCA.

Further FCA Plans

FCA intends to utilize the Mack Avenue Engine Complex by turning it into a manufacturing site for the next generation of the popular Jeep Grand Cherokee, now beginning its eighth generation. Simultaneously, the new Grand Cherokee and an all-new unnamed three-row Jeep SUV is planned to be built. Jeep has endured to somewhat quiet about the news, but we do know precisely where the leftover money will go to. Among the $4.5 billion, there are plans to revamp the Jefferson North plant to assemble the Dodge Durango and latest Grand Cherokee. The property will go into FCA’s plants in Sterling Heights, Dundee, and Warren, Michigan. Hoping to end up with a new Jeep vehicle? We know the place to go to test-drive one right now!

Wondering where the fastest place on Earth is? Look no further than Muscleville, America. In a new marketing campaign, Dodge highlights all of the fun of there muscle cars. Bill Goldberg is the mayor of Muscleville, a joy for fans of wrestling. Goldberg is ready to challenge anyone capable and willing to seize the moment and join him in showing off the power of his 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Throughout the town of Muscleville, only Dodge muscle cars roam through the streets. Dodge is hoping customers sign up to experience the 2019 Dodge Charger and 2019 Dodge Challenger.

“There’s no better time than Spring to kick off muscle car season. And what better way to celebrate our Dodge//SRT enthusiasts than to create a town just for them. In fact, our fans had the opportunity to line up on Main Street to meet the ‘Mayor’ and participate in the production, making them honorary residents of ‘Muscleville,’ a Dodge owner’s paradise,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – FCA North America.

What Exactly Is Muscleville Like?

Imagine a place with no stop signs, speed bumps, only wicked fast muscle cars and best of all, no slow drivers. The city of Muscleville is indeed imaginary, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dream of a place just like this. Taking time to appreciate the amount of detail Dodge placed into this campaign, viewers will notice that Main Street is an actual drag strip. The latest Dodge Durango SRT is spotted, along with the crop of HEMI V8 engines and powerful Pentastar V6 powertrains afforded to the likes like of the 2019 Dodge Charger and 2019 Dodge Challenger. The 2019 Dodge Durango is the most powerful SUV in its class and owners of the Durango SRT get a monstrous 475 horsepower with the strength to tow up to 8,700 pounds.

The commercials show off the high-performance capabilities and fun any driver behind the wheel of these new Dodge vehicles can offer. Tight turns are possible, luxurious interiors and best of all, the attitude and intensity of the Dodge brand that began as far back as 1900 in Detroit, Michigan. That’s what makes Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and their Dodge brand’s town of Muscleville all the more intriguing, its rich history of unparalleled engineering.

Dodge Muscleville Miami Lakes

A Town Unlike Any Other

A closer look into the Muscleville streets will show names like Charger Lane, SRT Street, and the Hellcat Highway. The movie theater is called the Hemiplex showing movies like “Burning Rubber Man,” “The Scat Pack” and the latest upcoming film titled “Streets of Smoke.” The official campaign will include more commercials and advertising the Performance Days sales event running through April 2019. With all the excitement and fun of Dodge muscle cars and SRT vehicles, like the Dodge Durango, owners can expect only the top-of-the-line performance.

FCA To Invest $4.5 Billion In Michigan Plants

FCA Plant Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: FCA

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is ramping up production plans in Michigan with a phenomenal $4.5 billion investment. The purpose for the investment is thanks to the two upcoming Jeep vehicles set to debut in early 2021. The first Jeep vehicle, a 3-row full-size SUV and the return of the Jeep Wagoneer and Jeep Grand Wagoneer. FCA knows all too well about the success of the Jeep brand in 2018 and they have wisely invested in extending the brand with an upcoming all-new pickup, named the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, and have started on creating the resurrection of the Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. We’re excited to share all the details for this expansion of the Jeep line-up and future FCA plans.

How Will the Money Be Spent?

The creation of nearly 6,500 jobs is expected along with the construction of a brand new production plant in Detriot, Michigan. The $4.5 billion will also be used to expand up to five facilities currently running in Michigan. About a third of the investment, approximately $1.6 billion will be used to convert the Mack Avenue Engine Complex in Detroit to a manufacturing site for the upcoming next-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee. This huge task will add 3,850 jobs.

“The move would increase capacity to meet the growing demand for its Jeep and Ram brands, including the production of two new Jeep-branded white space products, as well as electrified models,” according to a statement by FCA.

More Utilization of Funds

This large program will provide $1.5 billion of funds to help the Warren Truck Plant be able to ramp up production of the Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, as well as the assembly Ram 1500 Classic. This move is expected to bring 1,400 new jobs. Exactly $900 million will go into the Jefferson North Assembly Plant to help bring new and modern equipment to produce the next generation Jeep Grand Cherokee and the current Dodge Durango, adding another 1,100 new jobs. All of these assembly sites are expected to create plug-in hybrid versions of their respective Jeep vehicles. FCA expects to have new fully battery-electric models in the near future. A total of $405 million will be used to support further production at the Sterling Stamping and Warren Stamping planets with over 80 new jobs to be made at the Sterlign Heights plant.

New Production Placement For Trusted FCA Engine

One of the most popular FCA engines, the Pentastar 3.6-Liter V6 powertrain, will be relocated to the Dundee, Michigan plant. Moving from the Mack 1 plant in Detroit will cost $119 million and should not affect the current employee and production team at the Trenton Engine Plant. Both of those plants work specifically on the legendary engine that can be found in many Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, and Ram vehicles today. Speaking on behalf of FCA, CEO Mike Manley had this to say about all the upcoming changes and additional funding given to the Michigan plants.

“Three years ago, FCA set a course to grow our profitability based on the strength of the Jeep and Ram brands by realigning our U.S. manufacturing operations. Today’s announcement represents the next step in that strategy. It allows Jeep to enter two white-space segments that offer significant margin opportunities and will enable new electrified Jeep products, including at least four plug-in hybrid vehicles and the flexibility to produce fully battery-electric vehicles,” FCA CEO Mike Manley.

Dodge Has Big Electric Plans

2019 Dodge Challenger Miami Lakes

Photo credit: Dodge

As the plans are made for what steps the automotive industry will take to build safer, more modern and more fuel-efficient vehicles, many brands are determining how to make this possible why staying true to their name. Followers and fans of the Dodge brand wonder how this can happen while still pushing the envelope for innovation and power. Rival brands like Ford have plans to debut a brand new Mustang Hybrid in 2020 and General Motors has its electric division working on an all-new electric version of their Camaro muscle car.

So what does Dodge have planned? They’ve taken a considerable look at how to integrate new technologies at every aspect of making their vehicles; that’s how they engineered vehicles that perform the way they do. Be prepared for an electrical component to their upcoming signature vehicles in the next decade.

Electric Future of Dodge

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Dodge are not making any secrets about where they plan on taking their muscle cars in the future. Speaking candidly about where they are and the plans in the next five years toward making the push for a hybrid or electric power being added to Dodge vehicles, Mike Manley, CEO of FCA spoke about where he sees Dodge headed.

“What it isn’t going to be is a V8 supercharged, 700-horsepower engine. The reality is those platforms and the technology we use does need to move on. What’s important is what does the concept of American muscle look like in 2024? Does American muscle look like a big V8, supercharged, 700-horsepower, fire-breathing machine, or really is it for Dodge that combination of that incredible power-to-weight ratio, but now because new technology’s going to drive a load of weight out, we can think about the powertrains in a different way and we can use electrification to really supplement those vehicles going forward?” Manley said.

No Gas Engines?

While there will be significant upgrades to the powertrains of Dodge vehicles going forward, there is no chance they will remove the gasoline engines altogether any time soon. Manley did not express exactly what those electrification plans would be, but there’s a sense the current 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye might be the last vehicle hitting near the 800 horsepower threshold. Only one production muscle car made by Dodge went higher than that, but everyone knows what vehicle that is. It’s the same vehicle that helped the Redeye become as fast and powerful as it is.

Charger, Challenger Still Doing Extremely Well

Despite the current climate of new mild-hybrid vehicles and hybrids hitting the roads, the American muscle car is stronger than ever. Despite the Mustang and Camaro not doing as well, Dodge can’t say the same. The sales numbers for Dodge were excellent in 2018. While we can’t be sure the specifics yet of where Dodge will go with electric vehicle integration, we do know that the latest crop of Dodge muscle cars, like the 2019 Dodge Charger.

SRT Hellcat Redeye Named MotorWeek 2019 Drivers’ Choice

2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody

2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody

Dodge is celebrating its latest award win with their 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat being named MotorWeek’s Drivers’ Choice award. For any person who has driven or even been inside of a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, they can attest to the wonderful performance, speed and power that the Challenger has always embodied. Of course, that’s exactly what makes the all-new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye so attractive to consumers.

With the limits of maximum horsepower in a muscle car being pushed every year, Dodge has been awarded for their efforts to provide the customers with the best muscle cars on the planet. MotorWeek‘s Drivers’ Choice Award was for “Best Performance Car” and that is exactly the embodiment of Dodge. Pure performance and sleek design carry the Dodge muscle car lineup, most notably the new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.

Race With the Redeye

No other production vehicle comes out of the gate as fast as the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. The reason for the speed is thanks to the supercharged 6.2-Liter V8 engine that produces 797 horsepower with 707 lb-ft of torque. Unbelievable performance includes 0-60 mph acceleration in just 3.4 seconds, a quarter-mile time of merely 10.8 seconds at 131 mph, and a considerably wicked top speed of 203 mph, even faster speed than the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon in the same amount of time. Parts of the illustrious Dodge SRT Demon made its way into the Hellcat Redeye to make it so remarkable. While Dodge is looking to find ways to add electric power to enhance their muscle cars, currently this is not the case for the Dodge Challenger.

What Makes the Redeye Stand Out?

Aside from its lighting fast speed, the muscle car is built like few vehicles ever. In fact, it is built like only one vehicle; the SRT Demon. The all-new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye added the Demon’s Torque Reserve, pistons, high-speed connecting rods, and valvetrain. The same Dodge engineering team helped make the latest carnation of the Challenger. With all these parts making up the SRT Hellcat Redeye, there are no other vehicles that compare to the newest muscle car on the block built by Dodge today. (The Dodge SRT Demon is already out of production after its lone year and 3,300 total vehicles produced.)

“It’s awesome to know the muscle car spirit of the Demon lives on in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye,” said John Davis, creator and host of MotorWeek, television’s longest running automotive magazine show.

2020 Dodge Charger Set To Have First Ever Widebody Trims

2019 Dodge Charger SRT Miami Lakes Automall

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has new plans for the shape of the upcoming 2020 Dodge Charger. The latest details include finally providing customers with a widebody version for the 2020 Dodge Charger. While Dodge has stated they do not comment on vehicles that aren’t announced, they have no comment, there’s always a way for details to arrive before the official launch. Everyone is clamoring for news regarding their favorite vehicles around this time of year as the new year always brings chatter and speculation. This year is no different, with news being released right before the longest running auto show in Chicago in February (2019). Ready to know how the widebody will be added to the Dodge Charger?

Insider Information Has Leaked

Mopar Insiders have said the 2020 Dodge Charger is set to feature a very different appearance for both their front and rear fascias. It’s known that the widebody treatment can only come with new sheet metal added. The 2019 dual-snorkel grille is set to be redesigned for the sheet metal to be added to accommodate the wider fenders. There are also claims the 2020 Charger Widebody will carry the same hood that is currently used on the Charger Hellcat. The side sills are supposed to be redesigned to accommodate the widebody version. The report by Mopar Insiders also suggests the Charger Widebody is set to ride on 305/35ZR20 Pirelli tires, the same tires that are on the Challenger Widebody.

Multiple Charger Widebody Trims?

The Charger will always look powerful, it’s a muscle sedan that feels smooth when driving and carries the prestige of top-level craftsmanship. So how would a widebody addition help? There hasn’t been a widebody for the Charger, only the Dodge Challenger muscle car. Not only will this be special for Charger fans, but customers also won’t have to pay for the higher trim Hellcat model just to drive away with a Charger Widebody.

It is rumored that the Scat Pack trim will have the widebody feature available. This is huge for those consumers that are looking to save some money and still drive the Charger Widebody.

If there isn’t more news set to come out of the Chicago Auto Show, the 2019 New York Auto Show in April will most likely prove more insight. As Dodge remains mum on any news, we’ll hold our ear to the ground. However, to drive the latest Dodge muscle cars, check out all the new Dodge vehicles awaiting a test-drive at Miami Lakes Automall.

The Electric Future of Dodge Muscle

Dodge knows the world is changing little by little and the future of their muscle cars is set to change, too. The next change to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will come with their Dodge brand’s view on electric power. Specifically, Dodge is aiming to change the way their muscle cars are powered. Mike Manley, CEO of FCA, has an internal determination to reshape their Dodge Challenger and Charger, different than what they had showcased before. What exactly will that look like? The man to ask would be the Manley himself. He had this to say in regards to the future of Dodge and their outlook regarding their muscle cars going forward.

“What it isn’t going to be is a V8 supercharged, 700-horsepower engine.  The reality is those platforms and the technology we use does need to move on. What’s important is what does the concept of American muscle look like in 2024? Does American muscle look like a big V8, supercharged, 700-horsepower, fire-breathing machine, or really is it for Dodge that combination of that incredible power-to-weight ratio, but now because new technology’s going to drive a load of weight out, we can think about the powertrains in a different way and we can use electrification to really supplement those vehicles going forward?” Manley admitted.

Electric Power Forges Ahead

FCA’s Dodge brand muscle cars aim to increase their thunder with a shot of electric power going forward. Just last year, the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye was released with its 797 horsepower supercharged V8 engine that helps it go from 0-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. What that unique vehicle doesn’t have is any additional power by way of electric help to raise its acceleration. Imagine how much faster Dodge could make their vehicles with that influence. After all, the Tesla Model S reaches 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds, so adding some electric power might be hugely beneficial. Adding some electric energy could help the SRT Hellcat Redeye or muscle cars like it, as the Redeye doesn’t have the best highway mpg with its 22 mpg rating.

Where The Dodge Muscle Car Is Headed

The current body of the Dodge Charger was introduced 2006 and the Challenger SRT version first began in 2009. Though they have come to define the reintroduction of what muscle cars are known today; loud, boisterous, powerful, wide, large tires and strong. There are new changes coming that will improve their design under the hood and overall. What exactly it will it become is yet to be seen, but with clarity from CEO Mike Manley, we can expect the future to be quite electric.

Dodge Challenger Looking To Add Electric Technology?

2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Plum Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge has decided to do things differently lately and they have enjoyed more success as a result. Comparing 2017 and 2018 sales, Dodge sold 12,000 more vehicles in 2018. In addition, Dodge introduced new SRT vehicles including the fastest SRT in production today, the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and a new Scat Pack 1320 trims. Dodge added more value for less cost in 2018 for their customers and have goals to make 2019 as special as any year prior. How will the future be different for their loyal fan base? Let’s explore some of the changes that Dodge has taken a look to make their Dodge vehicles better.

The Electric Dodge Challenger

Dodge has revealed plans to introduce an electric Challenger, gaining extra horsepower through use of more modern technology. While the technology has caught up to the automotive industry, Dodge is has been known for having high performance, gas-powered engines. We’re not certain about which powertrains will gain an electric influence. Perhaps the long-running Pentastar 3.6-Liter V6 engine is a candidate. Dodge has been able to enhance their current vehicles with new technology to increase their MPG. Even the wicked fast SRT Hellcat has increased to an impressive 30 highway MPG, but there is always room to improve and ways to get better.

Recently speaking on the subject, Mike Manley, CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), the parent company of Dodge, mentioned their upcoming ideas for how to add new ways to achieve better results going forward to the next decade.

“The reality is those platforms and that technology we used does need to move on. They can’t exist as you get into the middle-2020s. New technology is going to drive a load of weight out, so we can think of the powertrains in a different way. And we can use electrification to really supplement those vehicles.” said FCA CEO Mike Manley at the Detroit Auto Show.

The Need For Innovation

Manley has stated that adding the electric-powered influence in Dodge vehicles won’t take away from the remarkable high-performance pedigree. Manley said they won’t have the electric-capabilities star as the focal point of any vehicle, but rather just increase performance. As fuel efficiency and hybrids have grown and taken hold of the industry, Dodge is just hoping to stay current. Fans of Dodge and their immense horsepower (797 horsepower is found in the Hellcat Redeye, for example) will be happy to know Dodge is adding more ways to increase the strength and vigor of their vehicles. For those that want to experience the latest Dodge vehicles, look no further than Miami Lakes Automall.

Dodge Charger Inspired Crossover Coming To Chrysler

Dodge Crossover Kendall Dodge

Photo credit: Allpar

How does Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) keep one of their main brands alive in the ever growing crossover market? Chrysler is taking a page out of another one of FCA’s brands, the success Dodge vehicle lineup and will be producing a new crossover based off the Dodge Charger, according to Allpar.com. Chrysler currently only has a single vehicle in any car segment, the full-size sedan Chrysler 300. Their successful minivan, the Chrysler Pacifica and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid models, represent their only other models. Now, a crossover will be planned to attract drivers to the nearly century-old brand.

A Glance At Chrysler’s Crossover and SUV History

Chrysler first debuted in 1925 and has headquarters in Michigan. This new vehicle will be only their second SUV ever and second crossover. The first crossover was actually the Pacifica, back when it was a mid-size crossover with model years ranging from 2004 till 2008. The first SUV was the short-lived Aspen that ran from 2007-2009 over a decade ago. The Pacifica was rebranded when it took over for the Town & Country in 2016. The Aspen was a luxury, three-row SUV based off the Dodge Durango (Dodge is another brand under the FCA umbrella) and while the Aspen was capable of seating up to eight and looked quite nice, it only had one trim, the Limited and ended after three years due to slow sales.

Today, the crossover SUV market is different and holds the market place ransom with the largest segment of vehicle sales in the United States. According to Quartz, it’s expected to grow to half of the market by 2020. SUVs have averaged a 12 percent compound annual growth rate over the 12 years from 2005 to 2017. Cars only grew two percent over that same span. Chrysler wisely needs a vehicle in that growing segment and with the success of their 300 and Pacifica models, they can make it happen easily. With the success of the crossover vehicles today, matching high technology with better fuel economy ratings, there’s no doubt Chrysler will aim to find the sweet spot customers are looking for today. So, what can Chrysler fans expect this vehicle to resemble?

What Will This Crossover Look Like?

Taking a page from the Dodge Charger, a sharp and bold front is expected. The Charger has kept it’s look and has not changed much over the 13 years of production. There’s a belief of  Allpar that the vehicle might gain the 300 nameplate, since the 300 is expected to end, but they could also bring the Town & Country name back. Whether or not the vehicle will have all-wheel-drive or go with the current Chrysler vehicles theme of front-wheel-drive is also yet to be known. FCA has found success in their Jeep®, Ram, and Dodge brands in recent years and will look to bring back attention to their longest-tenured brand in Chrysler.

In 2018, the Chrysler Pacifica accounted for 70 percent of their sales versus the Chrysler 300, so the market for larger vehicles is certainly there. Consumers want a larger vehicle with more versatility and pairing those needs of a larger vehicle with the high-performance abilities and look of something like the Charger makes sense. The Chrysler crossover is expected sometime next decade will be a surefire hit if it embraces the best parts of the Charger, it’s FCA brand cousin. There’s one place to check out to drive new Chrysler and new Dodge vehicles.

Why Muscle Cars Will Outlive the Average Sedan

2019 Dodge SRT Miami Lakes

Photo credit: Dodge

Everyone knows a muscle car when they see them, and especially when they hear them. There’s a loud sound that erupts from a muscle car when the driver puts the pedal to the metal, as they say. As the number of passenger cars is disappearing in record numbers, one thing is certain, that won’t be the case for muscle cars; at least not any time soon and at least not with Dodge. Dodge has stated that they will produce their long-standing muscle cars, the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger for another half-decade.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is responsible for the Dodge brand and they did announce the end for the Dodge Dart and the Chrysler 200 passenger car. Ford has done the same with their Ford Fusion and Ford Fiesta soon to be extinct. Across the automotive industry, there have been companies pulling back on once popular car entries like the Buick LaCrosse, which General Motors Co. has discontinued. Chevrolet also has revealed the end of the Impala as sales for these vehicles have dwindled.

Why the Muscle Car Will Survive

There’s no way to know for sure, but Dodge is committed to making their muscle cars stand out and stay relevant as they have for many decades. In fact, the Dodge Challenger rose up three percent in 2018 sales over 2017 numbers. That is good news for fans of the remarkably fast muscle car produced by Dodge. Dodge knows from the top down the fascination with their high-performance vehicles.

“What’s dying is the commoditized, four-door nothingburger, no-personality cars. Muscle cars have a really well-defined personality and positioning, ” said Tim Kuniskis, who ran the Dodge brand at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV from 2013 to early 2018, before taking over Jeep North America.

The Beginning of the Sedan’s End

What has helped FCA move from the sedan market is the average price for the muscle cars they sell. At around $36,000, it helps to offset the money made by sedan cars, as of 2016 Dodge truly began to move from the sedan market. While the profit from trucks and SUVs, which are growing in popularity, the muscle car market remains steady. Another reason that Dodge and FCA have had success with their muscle cars, the Dodge Challenger has not changed its platform model since 2011 and even longer for the Dodge Charger, not since 2008. Rather than having to entirely redesign their vehicles for newer more electric-based designs, they have been able to see profits for a long time without having to redesign the wheel.

Retail sales for large passenger cars is down 21 percent across the board, according to sales set in 2018, but that hasn’t affected the large muscle cars of Dodge. Thanks to their latest series of SRT (street and racing technology vehicles) like the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, which carry incredible horsepower and speed, they are beautiful, powerful and have gained the following of fans around the world for their exceptional high-performance and craftsmanship. The same can not be said about a Nissan Maxima, for example.

“There’s almost been a resurgence with some of the younger (people), even kids that aren’t of driving age that are interested in those products. Those kind of special additions and add-ons have really put some life into the vehicles,” said Jeff Schuster, senior vice president of forecasting for LMC Automotive.

Dodge Challenger Has Its Best Year Ever In 2018

2019 Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

The latest craze in the automotive industry has been a change in the landscape of popularity. More evidence has grown and shown that cars are just not as popular as before. Someone tell Dodge that. The latest evidence of this is the Dodge Challenger raised its sales in 2018. With 66,716 vehicles sold was up three percent and a record for the Dodge Challenger. Of course, the Dodge brand has been able to create fast, luxurious and fun to drive SUVs as well and they were their biggest hit in 2018 for Dodge. Let’s share all the fantastic perks customers can find in the 2019 Dodge vehicle lineup and how well they did over the course of 2018.

Dodge Has Great Variety In The SUV Market

Truth be told, Dodge had their biggest sales with their Dodge Grand Caravan. The Dodge Grand Caravan sold 151,927 vehicles in 2018, followed in popularity by the Dodge Journey and Dodge Durango, selling 94,096 and 65,947 vehicles respectively. Crossovers and SUVs accounted for 47.1% of new-vehicle registrations in the third quarter of 2018, up four percent the same quarter in 2017.

Their SUV catalog is popular and commands a presence with the mid-size SUV 2019 Dodge Caravan allowing for drivers to embrace its strength of up to 3,600 pounds of towing capacity and respectable 25 highway mpg. One trait that has attracted buyers is the low starting price of the base model, SE, at only $26,650 MSRP (plus destination fee).  

The slightly smaller Dodge Journey also carries the same highway MPG, while the largest SUV among the Dodge vehicles, the Durango, provides owners with 26 highway MPG and the highest towing capacity at an available 8,700 pounds thanks to the strong SRT 6.2-Liter V8 engine. The 2019 Dodge Durango begins at $29,995 MSRP (plus destination fee) for the base SXT model. The 2019 Dodge Journey, the smallest SUV of the Dodge lineup begins at $23,495 MSRP (plus destination fee) for the base model, SE trim.

How Dodge Muscle Cars Faired In 2018

Sedans accounted for 23.8% of new-vehicle registrations in the third quarter, down from 27% in 2017. In the third quarter of 2014, just four years prior, sedans accounted for 35.1% of registrations.The Dodge Charger, their flagship muscle car and also a sedan, sold 80,226 vehicles.The 2019 Dodge Charger boasts up to 30 highway MPG and sustains its popularity thanks to its wonderful high-performance drive that customers enjoy, quality and embedded power in the American fabric of great muscle cars. The 2019 Dodge Challenger, which is popular, but not as popular as the Charger, still increased in sales over 2017 and exceeded expectations by many in the industry thanks to the impressive top-tier models selling well. In fact, the Dodge Challenger was the only muscle car of the major muscle car brands (including the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro) to post year-over-year growth.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and other Hellcat models were quite stunning in terms of high-performance abilities on the road, but also for their performance in terms of sales. Drivers must have fallen for the remarkable speed provided by the powertrain that cranks out 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will continue to make these fine muscle vehicles into the future. A major refresh will mean at least around five more years of producing these popular muscle cars. We can’t blame them!

Dodge Enjoys Remarkable 2018 With Awards and All-New Vehicles

Photo credit: Dodge

There have been a lot of great moments in 2018 for the Dodge brand, including earning new awards and witnessing continued sales success. Dodge took home recognition from J.D. Power for the Highest Resale Value Midsize Sporty Car segment for the Dodge Challenger. The Dodge Charger earned the Highest Resale Value Large Car segment award. J.D. Power has been assisting customers to make better-informed decisions since 1968. Today in 2018, exactly 244 vehicle models were evaluated, comprising a sample of 650,000 completed transactions. The 2019 Dodge Durango was also awarded by Strategic Vision this year and improved upon from the previous year.

Remarkable Muscle Offered By Dodge

A breakthrough vehicle for the masses came with the latest high-end Dodge Challenger, the all-new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. The SRT Hellcat Redeye is a lighting fast, hardy, and a responsive muscle car – built with a 797 horsepower engine. The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was introduced earlier this year with increased horsepower yet again by achieving 717 horsepower, 10 more horsepower than the previous year. Both Hellcat models gain a distinguished dual-snorkel hood that pays tribute to the popular Dodge muscle cars, including the 1970 Dart Swinger and 1971 Demon.

Eight different models make up the reconfigured Challenger lineup for 2019 – including the SXT, SXT AWD, GT, GT AWD, R/T, R/ T Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat, and all-new SRT Hellcat Redeye. Various option packages extend all the upgrades, unique heritage cues and additional performance that Dodge//SRT consumers crave. The Challenger offers a broad range of engine options, including the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 on SXT, SXT AWD, GT, and GT AWD models, the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 in the R/T models, the naturally aspirated 392 HEMI V8 on R/T Scat Pack models, the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 on the SRT Hellcat and the all-new SRT Hellcat Redeye. There’s no good reason muscle car fans would skip the chance to drive this current line up of the 2019 Dodge Challenger.

Not Just Muscle Cars, The Durango Proves Impressive Value and Power

The newest Dodge Durango has never looked better with a class-leading maximum towing capability of 8,700 pounds and class-leading driving range. Fuel Saver Technology within its HEMI engines granting owners solid fuel economy with a 26 highway MPG rating with the rear-wheel-drive option. Altogether, the 2019 Durango is more rugged, powerful and comfortable inside than ever before. Owners have the option of three powertrain choices and provides consumers across five trims, ranging from the SXT, GT, R/T, Citadel and SRT.

Many styles and choices are available for drivers to choose from with the 2019 Durango, which took an award from Strategic Vision’s Total Quality Impact report. The Dodge Durango won the Mid-size SUV segment for the fifth time in six years! The available options are a big reason the Durango has done so well amongst customers and critics alike. A crowd pleaser three-row SUV that provides 43.3 cubic-feet of storage room and 85 cubic-feet of total storage space with both the second and third rows folded down. The 2019 Dodge Durango SRT is impressively quick traveling from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds and races through a quarter-mile in only 12.9 seconds!

The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Gets SRT Demon Components

2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Redeye Miami Lakes Automall

Photo Credit: Dodge

Few vehicles are built like the incredible all-new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. With a world-class, supercharged 6.2-Liter V8 engine that provides owners with a remarkable 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque, that’s just the start of what makes this vehicle so impressive. Of course, part of the reason the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is so remarkable is due to many of the same components built for the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. While the Dodge SRT Demon was capable of giving owners 840 horsepower when using high octane fuel, the parts that made the Demon such a powerhouse are now found in the newest SRT (Street Racing Technology) Dodge Challenger.

Last year, the stunning SRT Demon’s stock only included a small number, 3,330 vehicles, to be exact. Of course, the all-new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is not limited by a restrained run. Thankfully, there’s a lot of people that will be able to comfortably find and drive the all-new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.  

Meet the Newest Dodge Challenger, the SRT Hellcat Redeye  

The SRT Redeye is the highest trim available from the Hellcat, but that trim uses a 2.4-Liter supercharger for the Demon’s 2.7-Liter unit, and it hits 14.5 psi of boost—versus the 11.6 psi of the standard Hellcat — and the Demon as well. The standard Hellcat’s 6,200 rpm redline is raised to equal the Demon’s 6,500 rpm redline, and two dual-stage fuel pumps from the Demon help maintain the Hellcat Redeye’s appetite for premium 93 octane. This is part of what customers should expect from one of the world’s best high-performance muscle cars.

The SRT Demon also provided many firsts for a muscle car and some of those remarkable parts carried over to the new 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye including a 41-spline half shafts (yields a 20 percent improvement in torque capacity) and high-strength steel prop shafts, netting a 15 percent gain in torque capacity. What helps thrust the Dodge Demon to begin quickly from the line is also available with the SRT Hellcat Redeye; Launch Control, Launch Assist, Line Lock, and Torque Reserve. There’s also the Power Chiller and After-Run Chiller to help cool things down at the drag strip.

The Hellcat Redeye arrives standard with a high stall torque converter, helping add 18 percent extra torque and 11 percent quicker stall speed. The Redeye’s 2.62:1 final drive ratio is similar to the Demon’s 3.09:1 final drive ratio. The pricing variance is noteworthy as the 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye is priced at $71,350 MSRP (plus destination fee), which is far less than the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon’s original $86,090 sticker price. Not a bad thing to have just about the same vehicle for a vastly discounted amount. (Thanks Dodge and FCA!)

Variations Between Both Vehicles

While the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is able to blow away most of the competition it will ever face for a quarter-mile time (just 10.8 seconds) While the Demon claimed a striking 9.65-second quarter-mile time, the Redeye is stunning with a mark of 131 mph in the same span, barely 9 mph slower than the SRT Demon.

There’s a few other differences between the Hellcat Redeye and the SRT Demon? The 18-inch Demon wheels covered in 315/40 drag radials have not been continued to the SRT Hellcat Redeye, but rather replaced with two sets of sporty 20-inch wheels including 305/35 tires. The distinguished weight-shifting suspension mode is not present on the Hellcat Redeye. The smaller, thinner 14.2-inch front brakes for track duty aren’t continued as the Hellcat Redeye carries 15.4-inch stoppers from Brembo up front. These changes aren’t enough to persuade anyone from not getting the Hellcat Redeye, but are worth noting. Any customer that has had their eyes on the latest 2019 Dodge Challenger line-up will know there’s nothing quite like the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye available today.

The award season is in full swing and one of the most prized vehicles this year is none other than the 2019 Jeep® Wrangler, winning the ALG Residual Value, for the second year in a row. The 2019 Dodge Charger also won the award, taking it home for the fifth year in a row. It’s the only four-door muscle car to win in the ALG Residual Value in the Full-size Car segment. The 2019 Jeep Wrangler also took home Motor Trend’s 2019 SUV of the Year as well. The reasons these two Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) products won are plentiful as they both represent the best in their respective categories for a reason.

New 2019 Jeep Wrangler, A Natural Choice For Adventure

Considered the most distinguished vehicle in the world, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler earns a back-to-back win in the ALG Off-Road Utility segment thanks to its all-new design and uncompromising innovation. Jeep worked hard towards creating an even more accessible and easier to use Wrangler. Removing the doors, window and hard or soft top has never been simpler. ALG Residual Value Awards distinguish vehicles and brands that stand out from the rest of the market by designing quality, long-term dependability and influential desirability. ALG is considered one of the industry benchmarks for continuing values and depreciation data.

Step Into the 2019 Dodge Charger

More than a leader in terms of sales, the latest Dodge Charger has won in the Full-size Car segment for half a decade thanks to an enduring focus on improving every aspect of the vehicle. The 2019 Dodge Charger is no exception to innovation and the Charger SRT Hellcat trim is an example of remarkable high-performance excellence with a remarkable 707 horsepower in the 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 powertrain. Across every trim, owners will have an impressive muscle car with tremendous horsepower.

“As a niche player in the segment, the Dodge Charger offers the best of both worlds with the comfort of a full-size sedan and the power of a muscle car. High performance offered at an affordable price-point leads Charger to sweep the full-size segment and take home its fifth consecutive Residual Value Award,” said Eric Lyman, senior vice president of ALG.

More on the 2019 Wrangler

The praise for the all-new 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL was commented on as well. For any person looking for the perfect off-road vehicle that embraces technology and innovation with a wonderful track record of resale value, there are few better options than a 2019 Jeep Wrangler.

“Jeep has a long and successful history in off-road utilities and the Wrangler combines function and comfort, adding new technology and powertrain offerings. This strong value proposition makes it no surprise to see the Wrangler win the Residual Value Award in the Off-Road Utility segment for the second year in a row,” Lyman said.

Where The Dodge Challenger Began To Present Day

1959 Silver Challenger Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

The Dodge Challenger is recognized for making the most of the Dodge muscle car expertise. Beginning with the original 135 horsepower 1959 Dodge Coronet, named the Dodge Silver Challenger (pictured above). The “Silver Challenger” is a special edition two-door coupe that was also available with a 255 horsepower Red Ram V8 engine. The original Challenger vehicle was a coupe with a powerful engine and that trend continues today. What’s been upgraded over the years? For many, the Challenger really got started with the Dodge pony cars from 1970 through 1974.

Today, Challengers reflect a refined design that has only become more respected and revered. Rich upgrades are very evident with the newest incarnation of the Dodge Challenger. No vehicles made today have the style and noticeable appearance like the 2019 Dodge Challenger. The dual-snorkel hood look on the 2019 Dodge Challenger was inspired by the 1970s Dart Stinger pictured below (which carried a turbine engine with an inline-six or V8 powertrain) and the wicked 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

1970 Dodge Dart Stinger Miami Lakes Automall

The history of the Dodge Challenger will make others take notice, honk or wave at the sight of one. This is due to the enduring legacy Dodge has earned with its pedigree of thriving muscle cars like the legendary Challenger. This has never been more evident than in the latest version of the Dodge Challenger. Matching an inspiration of high-performance and iconic design, the latest entry into the Dodge lineup is quite impressive.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger Is A Powerhouse

The 2019 Dodge Challenger provides many options, from the base trim to the full-throttle action of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, which carries a 797 horsepower 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 engine. Not just quick and fitted for high-performance driving, the available 8.4-inch Uconnect system is the latest infotainment system that makes accessing a smartphone simpler and gives that critical aspect of allowing drivers more time to concentrate on the path rather than their phone. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth capabilities and navigation options are available for Owners with the latest Uconnect infotainment system. Dodge Challengers provide an experience unlike any other vehicle and are celebrated for their driving ability and swift acceleration. The beast among all the trims is the SRT Hellcat Redeye (pictured below).

2019 Dodge Challenger Miami Lakes Automall

The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye carries new badging, including a sinister red eye highlighted on the Hellcat fender badges, instrument panel, key fobs, and supercharger housing. Inside, the performance interior features a new 220-mph red speedometer and Redeye logo splash screen. The future of the Challenger is here, more powerful than any other Dodge muscle car available today.

The Fastest SRT Dodge Challenger of 2019 Is Unreal

Photo credit: Dodge

The wait is over. The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye has arrived for those looking to experience a whopping 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. There’s no denying the high-performance of the unique muscle car that has unmatched speed and horsepower available right from the dealership. It’s unlike any vehicle most drivers have or ever will experience with an impressive 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 engine that runs with fury. However, for some, there’s always a way to improve a vehicle that is already the fastest Dodge SRT (street racing technology) vehicle available.

When 797 Horsepower Is Not Enough

The 1,200 horsepower Hellcat Redeye is not a stretch of the imagination thanks to the Hennessey Performance Engineering company. Since 1991, this American tuning house focuses on making already incredible vehicles even more astonishing. Take for example their package that promotes an additional 503 horsepower on the latest 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Last year the HPE1200 package was introduced to the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, which already had 840 horsepower, but not even that compared to their special modifications included in the HPE1200 package. Thanks to the upcoming HPE1200 package that will crank out 1200 horsepower, this year’s SRT Hellcat Redeye will be able to join the ranks with last year’s SRT Demon as the fastest Challenger ever assembled.

This is an upgrade from Hennessey’s HPE1000 Hellcat Redeye package that included a 4.5-Liter engine with a Supercharged pulley upgrade, throttle body upgrade, high-flow catalytic converters and a high-flow air induction system to help promote the 1,000 horsepower. This new package will help the Redeye  achieve even more vigor with better results. The HPE1200 will boost the muscle car to 1,013 horsepower and 954 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels, which by comparison the HPE1000 package “only” hit 880 horsepower and 806 lb-ft of torque at the wheels.

The Fastest Production Dodge Muscle Car

Since the SRT Demon is no longer in production, there’s no other vehicle as fast or incredible as the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, especially when equipped with the upcoming HPE1200 package. The supercharger will run at 14.5 psi of boost, up from the previous 11.6 psi. This is made possible by the strengthened connecting rods and pistons that can manage the extra pressure. The price for the SRT Hellcat Redeye beings at $69,950 MSRP (plus destination fee and gas tax). The HPE1000 and HPE1200 packages run extra and come with a 1 Year / 12,000-mile limited warranty from Hennessey. This upcoming package was revealed by CarBuzz and it’s not expected to remain a rumor for long. For those looking to get their hands on the latest SRT vehicles, visit Miami Lakes Automall now.

No Place Else Has You Covered Like We Do

There’s a new Dodge club for owners of Dodge muscle cars, the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger. Dodge has made some of the most powerful muscle cars ever made, and their newest line-up has taken the drag racing scene to new heights. With their latest technology and craftsmanship, and to celebrate their fans love and affinity for their heart-racing premier vehicles, Dodge has introduced an all-new 1320 Club. This club provides a way for those Dodge owners to show off their admiration of these muscle cars in a new way. Let’s get into the specifics and requirements needed to join.

A Closer Look at the New 1320 Club

Dodge has made the fastest production cars in their storied Challenger and Charger history. Now, for the first time ever, owners of both of those vehicles can become members of the new 1320 Club and challenge other owners to best all previous results and gain a spot on the Stock or Modified 1320 Club Leaderboard. There are some requirements, but most importantly the 1320 Club is free to U.S. and Canadian owners of late model Dodge Challengers (2008 – current) and Dodge Chargers (2006 – current). Once signed up, new members will be asked to make a public profile displaying their vehicle, sign the safe racing pledge and have access to reflect on entries, enter time slips for consideration and approval, locate a distinct drag strip to race at, visit current racing competitions, read articles and earn their own digital and physical achievement badges to show off.

What To Expect In the 1320 Club

Dodge owners will be able to test their skill and see how quick their vehicle is. The 1320 Club works jointly with the Dodge Garage, the Dodge brand’s digital content center for racing and car enthusiasts, and to provide supplementary parts to improve performance and make any Dodge vehicle perform better and quicker.

“The 1320 Club provides our Dodge brand enthusiasts with an exclusive online destination to record and share their official quarter-mile achievements within the drag racing community. With more Dodge brand enthusiasts than ever wanting to be part of our ‘brotherhood of muscle,’ the addition of the 1320 Club to the Dodge Garage further expands the ultimate digital content hub where muscle car and race enthusiasts can find the latest on all things Dodge, SRT, and Mopar.” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America.

Show Off Dodge Pride #SaveYourSlips

Driver’s can showcase physical achievement badges on their Dodge vehicles. Performance badges and decals will be made in gray for Stock or red for Modified. Stock or Modified badges that can be earned are the following:

Quarter mile time ET // Extending from 8.0 to 13.9 seconds

0-60 ft time // Extending from 1.4 to 2.0 seconds

Top speed // Varying from 105 to 170 mph

Signing Up Is Easy!

Simply create and account at DodgeGarage.com to register. There’s a brand-new 1320 Club landing page that allow users to sign up, confirm they have a proper Dodge muscle vehicle to participate by providing the vehicle VIN number, vehicle year, model and trim level. All entries will be evaluated and validated by Dodge Garage administrators. Every entry must be approved and after that is confirmed, new members will receive an email authenticating their level of achievement.  

Achievement badges are joined to all Dodge Garage profiles and are encouraged to be shared on social media. (They’re pretty cool, if we do say so.) Decals will be available to be purchased so they can be displayed on their respective vehicle. Once a 1320 Club decal is purchased, members gain an exclusive 1320 Club hat and new toolboxes complete with daily updates, curating muscle car and racing enthusiast content from across the automotive Dodge universe and more.

Remember the Oath

It’s important to remember the oath 1320 Club members will sign. The Dodge brand will never support any form of street racing. All submissions must be from a race administered at a sanctioned race facility for safety purposes.

The Place To Go To Drive Dodge

If you’re curious about joining the 1320 Club, we have all the latest Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger models and can help make joining a reality at Miami Lakes Automall.

Let us assist with any current repair or maintenance needs on your current vehicle. Just make a simple appointment and let us handle the rest when you drop off your vehicle.

5 Reasons 2018 Has Been A Banner Year For Dodge Muscle Cars

Photo credit: Motor1

Dodge enthusiasts everywhere know a thing or two about the powerful automotive brand. Dodge. Owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), Dodge has earned a reputation for providing some of the fastest, strongest high-performance muscle cars in the world. With the latest 2019 Dodge muscle cars quickly on their way to dealerships, we want to share some of the insight the biggest Dodge fanatics might know, but we’ll be happy to share.

Dodge Built Their Fastest Challenger Ever in 2018

The all-new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is the latest Hellcat version to hit roads; built with many parts that made up the automaker’s signature 2018 Dodge Challenger, the wicked fast SRT Demon, it’s even faster than its predecessor with an eye-popping top speed of 203 mph. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon “only” hit 168 mph by comparison. Both carry the stunning 6.2-liter V8 HEMI engine with the SRT Demon cranking out 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque, while the 2019 SRT Redeye provides 797 horsepower and 717 lb-ft of torque. If raced against one another, the winner is anyone watching as both these vehicles purr unlike any other vehicle on the road today.  

The Latest Widebody Options Are Well-Worth Purchasing

For those that love to race on a drag strip and have a vehicle geared to handling sharp turns and ultimate control, Dodge has made the perfect option available with their Widebody package. The Dodge Widebody costs nearly $6,000 but provides incredible handling thanks to the extended body width and tires than grip the track better. The package also includes all-season performance tires, Widebody competition suspension, flared fenders, 20×11-inch Devil’s Rim forged aluminum wheels and is available for the SRT Hellcat, R/T Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat Redeye models. Racing enthusiasts won’t want to have any other vehicle option!

The Latest Hellcat Prices Are Lowered, Despite Gaining More Power

Hoping to own a new Dodge SRT Hellcat? Both the Challenger and Charger have SRT Hellcat models and have reduced prices compared to the previous year. For the 2019 Challenger, there was an added dual-snorkel hood for both the Hellcat and Redeye model, which helps promote higher horsepower by way of gaining a large amount of air-intake. This change helped the original Challenger SRT Hellcat gain a raise from 707 horsepower to 717 horsepower. Because of the SRT Redeye being added to the top of the lineup, the standard Hellcat trim is actually five-thousand dollars less! Customers can find the 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat for $61,745 MSRP (plus destination fee).

There’s A New Dodge Club In Town

Dodge happily announced for owners of either a 2006-present Dodge Charger or 2008-present Challenger that there’s a new 1320 Club that drivers can join. The 1320 Club includes members that love to drag race and track their times. There’s achievements badges, decals with 1320 Club listed and a public profile that allows those in the club to brag about their best quarter-mile times all in the name of fun. The perks also include daily updates, curating muscle car tips and racing enthusiast content from members. This club is only open to Dodge muscle car owners for the vehicles mentioned above, but for those that want to join the club, there are many choices. An all-new Scat Pack 1320 “Angry Bee” Dodge muscle package was created and provides a stunning look and incredible strength. With many features that make racing so much fun, this package includes Line Lock, Drag Mode, and Torque Reserve. The 1320 package adds $3,995 to the Scat Pack price tag, and so the Scat Pack 1320 will start at an MSRP of $42,990 (plus destination fee).

The Dodge Scat Pack Has Never Been Better

The new Challenger R/T Scat Pack arrives enhanced with the 392-cubic-inch Hemi V8 engine that produces 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. Owners can opt for the impressive, aforementioned Widebody package, and enjoy the Scat Pack that brings standard launch control, launch assist, line lock as well as SRT drive modes. The R/T Scat Pack is exactly 200 pounds lighter than the Redeye, allowing for tighter movement and remarkable handling. There’s not a single muscle car on the market that offers such impressive performance and horsepower for less than $40,000 (excluding destination fees.) The new Scat Pack also offers a 6-speed manual transmission standard, rather than the 8-speed automatic transmission offered in the Redeye. Stick-shift enthusiasts can rejoice.

2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Rolls Off Assembly Line

Photo credit: Dodge

Searching for that fantastic muscle car to make a difference and bring some exhilberance for the daily commute? The first units of the new 797-horsepower 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye are now rolling off the production line. Production of these new models just started in October 2018 at the FCA US Brampton Assembly Plant in Ontario, Canada, and now they’re ready to go. There’s no shortage of vehicles for this run, unlike the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon limited run of just 3,300 vehicles produced. While many of the parts of the latest SRT Hellcat Redeye are made up of the SRT Demon, this vehicle is considered more appealing for everyday driving.

What Makes Up the SRT Hellcat Redeye?

The supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V8 engine, derived from the record-setting 2018 Challenger SRT Demon provides 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque, that makes the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye easily the most robust, responsive and fastest muscle car available from Dodge today. Unbelievable performance includes 0-60 mph acceleration in 3.4 seconds, a quarter-mile time of just 10.8 seconds at 131 mph, and a ridiculously quick top speed of 203 mph. So where else has the SRT Demon influenced the Redeye? The Demon’s Torque Reserve, factory SRT power chiller and factory after-run chiller, that help to calm the powerful V8 engine, are all a part of the newest Dodge muscle car. There’s also the same large supercharger engine, high-speed connecting rods, pistons and valvetrain that were taken from the special SRT Demon and added to push the SRT Hellcat Redeye unlike any other Hellcat made.

More on the Incredible Redeye

A distinctive look for the 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye includes a new fully functional, dual-snorkel hood that pays homage to the distinctive Dodge design themes from some of its most well-known muscle cars. Owners of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye will receive new badging, including a sinister red eye featured on the Hellcat fender badges, instrument panel, key fobs, and supercharger housing. Inside, the performance interior features a new 220-mph red speedometer and Redeye logo splash screen.

There are few muscle cars that can keep up with the unique Redeye, and the only muscle cars that can tend to cost more than double the price of the new SRT Hellcat Redeye. In fact, if the name of the vehicle doesn’t include the word “Demon”, chances are there’s no way any driver will be able to match the speed offered by the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Customers won’t believe their eyes when they see the starting price is only $71,045 MSRP (plus destination fee). The latest Dodge Challenger SRT muscle car makes its way to dealerships very soon in fall 2018.

The Latest Dodge Challenger Can Be Found at One Place

For those that want to take home the latest Dodge vehicles, we welcome you to Miami Lakes Automall. The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye models will start arriving at Dodge//SRT dealerships before long.

Latest Charger Revealed at SEMA Show

Photo credit: Dodge

The 2019 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show is an annual event in Las Vegas that draws massive attention due to all the wild, large, and innovative vehicles being shown off to the world. For 2019, Fiat Chrysler presented their Charger sedan series with new technology that premiered in their 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. FCA is continuing to nurture what is now practically the only 4-door muscle car in North America by giving it some brand new exterior aesthetic options from the SRT Hellcat and R/T models.

“The Dodge Charger continues its run as the sales leader in the large car segment for the fifth year in a row. And as the aftermarket customization business continues to balloon, these new stripe options give Charger buyers the opportunity to make what is already the only four-door muscle car in the market even more unique, and to do it straight from the factory,” said Steve Beahm, head of passenger cars at FCA North America.

SEMA Show Featuring the Newest Dodge Charger

During the 2018 SEMA Show, Dodge is commencing with three new Charger SRT Hellcat models, each with three new dual-center stripe colors (Red, Blue, and Silver) that run down the center of the car and over both fascias, from the hood and across the roof. The blue stripes run especially great with a white body-painted Charger, while the silver-on-black combo is a fun look for owners to enjoy. The red-on-black style has a tremendous and sharp look that screams Hellcat. The Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack will also add stripes that were previously only on other trims –  Dual-Carbon stripes are available for non-supercharged Chargers at the low price of $995. This has never before been offered on non-supercharged Charger trims.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is excited to share upgrades for higher-end Charger muscle cars with parts right out of the famed 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Line-lock and launch assist aides to give a perfect start at the drag strip, and thanks to new dual air inlets, this Charger sounds like the Demon and provides that extra purr that sounds so nice. Torque Reserve and an after-run chiller were also added for this Hellcat trim, and both the R/T and R/T Scat Pack trims will gain a launch-control switch. Get ready to move quickly when driving this new Dodge muscle car.

More Surprises From Mopar

Mopar introduced a 426 HEMI engine to be a part of the Hellephant 426 Supercharged Crate HEMI crate box. This crate will include a 1000 horsepower engine that can also generate 950 lb-ft of torque. The engine will be increased from 6.2 to 7.0 liters. Come to think of it, this new Hellephant engine is getting a lot of changes, making it a hybrid of the most powerful Dodge engines to date.

Equipped with an improved supercharger, a high-efficiency rotor has been mounted onto the engine block, with the engine block itself made out of aluminum to cut some weight. The Hellephant engine borrows valve covers from the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye valve train; valves, locks and retainers from the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon; comes with a special high-lift cam and custom-forged pistons. For complete assembly, the Hellephant also requires a water pump, flywheel, front sump oil pan, supercharger with throttle body, fuel injectors, and coil packs.

The coolest thing about the new Hellephant crate is the plan to offer a “Front End Accessory Drive” kit that will be able to be inserted into any pre-1976 Dodge muscle car with an alternator, power steering pump and all the belts and pulleys needed to get the job done.

J.D. Power Awards Praise the Resale Value of Multiple FCA Vehicles

Thinking of buying a pre-owned vehicle? Wondering what new vehicle would run best in a few years? Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is pleased to be acknowledged by J.D. Power with several vehicles receiving the 2018 Resale Value Award, considering the best resale value measured for 24 model-level vehicle segments. The Ram pickup trucks gained the highest resale value in the entire industry, but they weren’t the only FCA brand named.

The Dodge Challenger, Charger and Jeep® Wrangler won in their individual segments for having exceptional resale value. Among the awards won by the four FCA vehicles, the Highest Resale Value Industry-wide award went to the Ram 3500 Heavy Duty, Highest Resale Value Midsize Sporty Car segment was awarded to the Dodge Challenger, the Dodge Charger won the Highest Resale Value Large Car segment award, and the award for the Highest Resale Value Compact SUV segment went to the Jeep Wrangler JK. The process has changed since inception, but we’ll get into all the details and the vehicles that won below.

Overview of the Award Process

J.D. Power has been around since 1968, and J.D. Power helps owners make better-informed choices. In 2018, exactly 244 vehicle models were evaluated during the J.D. Power Resale Value Study, involving a sample of over 650,000 deals with an average of 3,500 data points valued on each vehicle. The award determination method applies pre-owned vehicle wholesale figures that outline how much a dealer purchases a used vehicle for. The prices are then divided by the vehicle’s initial purchase price. These assessments are based on wholesale records from January through June 2018 for vehicles that are three years old – the 2015 model year.

The Rush of the Dodge Challenger Is Incredible

Looking into the latest Dodge Challenger muscle car lineup built by Dodge, and consumers can feel the horsepower of Street Racing Technology (SRT) with their SRT Hellcat vehicles. The newest 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye thrives with a muscular, electric 797 horsepower engine. The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat raises the horsepower yet again this year by producing 717 horsepower, and both Hellcat models obtain a distinct dual-snorkel hood that gives tribute to the most popular Dodge muscle cars, including the 1970 Dart Swinger and 1971 Demon.

For drivers that enjoy the wicked Widebody models, they will find added fender flares, increasing the body width by 3.5 inches, 20 x 11-inch forged wheels, 305/35ZR20 Pirelli tires, and larger six-piston Brembo brakes. Consumers can add this appearance package to the SRT Hellcat or R/T Scat Pack. The new Challenger GT rear-wheel-drive model continues its performance capabilities with standard Super Track Pak features, a performance hood, and is powered by the legendary 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 engine.

Eight separate models make up the reconfigured vehicle lineup for 2019 – the SXT, SXT AWD, GT, GT AWD, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye. Various option packages extend upgrades, showcasing new features and supply exhilaration on demand. The Challenger offers a comprehensive range of motor options, including the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 on SXT, SXT AWD, GT and GT AWD models, the superb 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 in the R/T models, the naturally aspirated 392 HEMI V-8 on R/T Scat Pack models, the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 on the SRT Hellcat, and a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V8 on the SRT Hellcat Redeye. Some serious speed is expected for owners to embrace and enjoy.

Drive the Fastest Dodge Charger Yet

The Dodge Charger has four seats, unlike the Challenger coupe, and is the fastest four-door muscle car produced. Remarkable performance matched with standard V6 efficiency and available all-wheel-drive (AWD) capabilities, the Dodge Charger lineup is produced and masterminded to accommodate the latest in high-performance enjoyment. The Dodge Charger provides optional all-wheel-drive, but rear-wheel-drive (RWD) is standard across the lineup, highlighted by the unrestricted performance-driven powertrains under the hood. The standard being the exceptional 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 on Charger SXT, SXT AWD and GT, the wonderful 5.7-Liter HEMI V8 on R/T models, the striking 392 HEMI V8 on R/T Scat Pack models, and the 707 horsepower 6.2-Liter supercharged HEMI SRT Hellcat V8. Standard on each Dodge Charger model is an eight-speed automatic transmission.

For 2019, Dodge added a fresh Charger SXT AWD model and a new Charger GT RWD performance V6 model. Dodge Charger GT and R/T models get the performance look and feature standards, and receive sleek race-bred chassis upgrades. The Charger SRT Hellcat and R/T Scat Pack feature standard performance upgrades, including Launch Assist and Line Lock; a new performance grille with dual air inlets; new Launch Control switch on R/T Scat Pack; and Torque Reserve and an After-Run Chiller on the SRT Hellcat. It’s clear to see why the Charger received its award. The 2018 Dodge Charger starts at $28,995 MSRP (plus destination fee.)

See The World Through A Jeep Wrangler

Every Jeep® Wrangler provides the most durable and off-road ready drive. Seven decades of 4×4 engineering expertise go into the Wrangler. Starting with the 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 and an all-new 2.0-Liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, drivers can expect great things. The Jeep Wrangler has a body-on-frame design, front and rear five-link suspension system, solid axles, and electronic lockers to make going off-road easier than ever. Buyers gain a six-speed manual transmission in addition to the optional eight-speed automatic. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL begins at $27,945 MSRP (plus destination fee).

Do More With A Ram Heavy-Duty Pickup

FCA Wins Multiple Awards

2019 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Photo Credit: Jeep

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is proud to stand behind three brands that were just awarded in their various vehicle segments. Jeep, Dodge, and Ram were the brands that earned recognition through Strategic Vision’s 24th annual Total Quality Impact report. The segment winners of the 2018 Ideal Vehicle Awards (IVA) include the Dodge Durango, Jeep® Renegade and Ram 2500/3500, named best “Mid-Size SUV”, “Entry SUV”, “Heavy-Duty Pickup” respectively. How were these accolades given out? The basis of the research is entirely consumer based and gathered by customers of the vehicles.

How The Feedback Shapes IVAs

Modern automotive research is composed of many components and feedback that are measured by consulting firms like Strategic Vision. The 2018 Total Quality Impact (TQI) report is based on over 155 aspects for each vehicle that receives attention in total. Overall, there were over 44,000 owners of new vehicles spread across all major manufacturers to decide this year’s awards. Survey results show that the Dodge Durango, Ram 2500/3500, and the 2019 Jeep Renegade meet or exceeded all total expectations.

“TQI shows how people feel about their vehicles in their own words, which reveal valuable recommendations for future products. From how customers are advocating about their products, automotive manufacturers can know where the future of the U.S. market is going,” says Chris Chaney, Senior Vice President at Strategic Vision.

TQI focuses not solely on quality but defines their outcomes based on how the perceived quality has influenced drivers on an emotional note. Strategic Vision’s TQI report is based on research from the New Vehicle Experience Study® (NVES). The NVES includes over 44,000 responses from new vehicle buyers after the first 90 days of ownership. During July and December, the results are compiled. It includes the influence of difficulties with the vehicle as well as the drivers’ rational and personal evaluations of quality. No other vehicle has impressive TQI and Strategic Vision like the Dodge Durango.

Dodge Durango

For five of the last six years, the Dodge Durango has been awarded as the winner in the Mid-Size SUV segment. Last year’s 2018 Dodge Durango was recognized for the many configurations and options available to customers. A refined exterior design with the Durango’s standard features like TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, unmatched speed offered with the SRT trim and upgraded appearance helped make this an easy call. How does 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds sound? The available HEMI V8 engine unleashes a remarkable experience for owners of the award-winning Dodge Durango.

Jeep Renegade

The Jeep Renegade is known for unmatched drivability, premier craftsmanship, impressive on-road refinement, and advanced safety and technology features. As customers have known for decades, Jeep enhances a driver’s off-road capabilities are second to none. Drivers can get one or two available 4×4 systems (Active Drive and Active Drive Low) and enjoy the perks of the class-leading Selec-Terrain traction management system. With a Jeep vehicle, expect only the best in terms of superior driving technology, with an impressive new 1.3-Liter turbocharged engine in the latest Renegade. Engine stop-start technology helps conserve gas and provide great fuel efficiency.

Ram 2500/3500

The Ram Heavy-Duty pickup segment has dual options for those that want to help their business grow, easily haul heavy items, and provide fantastic luxury at a reasonable price. What more could a vehicle owner hope for? Find America’s longest lasting pickups with up to 31,310 pounds of towing capacity in the Ram 3500. Ram has been able to provide modern technology, like the five-link coil suspension or available air-suspension to make hauling easier than ever before with the Ram 2500. Find out what is possible with a heavy-duty pickup when visiting Miami Lakes Automall.

2019 Dodge R/T Scat Pack Challenger Is Something Special


Photo credit: Dodge

Dodge has long been a pioneer of the muscle car, dating back since the late 1960’s. For those who have not driven a muscle car, there’s one fact most people don’t know. They aren’t as expensive to own as some may believe. Muscle cars are also extremely fun and fast, but everyone knows that. For those searching for a new vehicle, for those who want to test out the waters of something exciting, consider a muscle car. A great starting point would be the latest 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, inspired by the early Dodge muscle cars that preceded it.

Which Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Do I Want?

As far as affordable muscle cars, Dodge is the premier manufacturer for powerful muscle cars at a price point many can absorb. Take into account the price to own the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is only $40,390 MSRP (plus destination fee). Few vehicles on the road will provide a remarkable engine like the revered 6.4-Liter 392 HEMI V8 engine. Drivers can feel the pulse of 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. The powerful Challenger rides on huge 20-inch 35-series tires, can handle bumpy roads, and provide all the fun that escapes many vehicles in everyday travel. Drivers can opt for the special 1320 package that includes an automatic transmission and begins at $45,980 MSRP (plus destination fee).

Special 1320 R/T Scat Pack Package Available

Behind the wheel of a vehicle like the 1320 R/T Scat Pack will remove any boring commute and transform driving into the most exciting part of the day. Consider the 11.7 second quarter-mile time of the 1320 R/T Scat Pack, hitting a top speed of 115 mph in the process. This is one of the fastest street-legal muscle cars in existence! For those that can’t help, but want even more fun out of the R/T Scat Pack, there’s a widebody model as well.

“The 1320 is intended to be a vehicle that someone can drive to work, but if they’re working on a Saturday they can head over to the drag strip and take it down the track. It’s a special model, a buzz model,” says Steve Beahm, head of passenger car brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler, and Fiat for FCA North America.

Drivers Can Opt For The R/T Scat Pack Widebody

For those that know they will want to put the pedal to the metal, we recommend the impressive widebody model of the R/T Scat Pack. With the added specialized suspension, upgraded brakes and body enhancements, there’s more for that driver looking to maximize their Dodge experience. The Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody includes a longer, wider feel to allow for tighter turns, precise and sharp handling with improved tires and wheels.

If any driver wants to experience an upgraded R/T Scat Pack experience, we know there’s nothing wrong with wanting the best drive possible. The latest Challenger muscle cars carry a powerful and elegant style that has captivated drivers for decades. We invite our guests to see in person the kind of statement muscle cars can make.

Mopar Has a Colorful Approach Towards Making Engines

Photo credit: Dodge, Mopar Pro

Among the many different parts and accessories suppliers, few do things like Mopar. Responsible for making engines for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) vehicles like Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram, Mopar has made their name with their high quality products and innovation. At car shows around the world, many owners of these vehicles with genuine Mopar parts proudly show them off. While many car enthusiasts know Mopar for their innovative parts, as high-performance and high horsepower is expected, a large reason for their popularity is a willingness to experiment with different colors for their parts. Mopar has always found ways to stand out from the pack.

Mopar made an impact with their colors in their 1962-1964 Max Wedge engines. Those engines were uniquely crafted with a bright orange. The same orange shade was found in the 1964-65 Race HEMI engines as well as the 413 and 426 Cross Ram truck engines. This color helped earn further recognition for the brand, but they decided to keep mixing up the colors going forward. Mopar introduced a medium blue-green coloring for their big block B/RB engines. The blue-green look carried a long run from 1962 through 1968. Those engines were proceeded by the 1969-71 high performance engines like the popular 340, 383 and 440 engines that returned back to that famous orange color. The 1963 through 1969 Slant 6 truck engines had a bright yellow that stood out surrounding the hood (as pictured above).  

A black paint job became well known in their 2.2-Liter engines from 1981 to the present. The 318 and 360 engines were painted dark black in 1983 and never looked back until Mopar returned to the orange coat with their 707 horsepower 6.2-Liter Hellcrate HEMI engine. What makes Mopar especially fantastic is the horsepower to spare, providing maximum power and legendary craftsmanship. To experience the latest FCA vehicles, we know the perfect place to get a high performance engine that is built to last and looks just as amazing as it performs.

Police Can Now Buy an Armored Hellcat

Photo credit: TopGear

For any police officer that has wanted to drive the Batmobile, the closest example of that remarkable, bulletproof car isn’t a dream any longer. Impressive technology that can help save lives of police can be found in the armored Hellcat that’s being made by International Armoring Corporation, a Utah based armoring business that produces high-quality, custom protective solutions. Their bulletproof protection is offered across every platform of vehicle from crossovers, coupes, sedans and vans to SUVs, trucks and hatchbacks; there’s no vehicle they can’t upgrade. What makes this company’s touch on the Hellcat so incredible is the fact their armored protection can stop some serious heavy caliber rounds. These vehicles might become something that is adopted by police forces across the country.

What Kind of Unique Armor?

The Armormax company install the ultimate light-weight ballistic armoring material throughout the vehicles they equip. The armor produced by Armormax is capable of stopping up to B7 ballistic protection levels. Armormax has come up with their own rating system for varying levels of protection.

B4, B5, B6 and B7 are their various levels of armored protection.

  • B4 protection is capable of stopping hand guns,
  • B5 can handle up to AK-47 rounds
  • B6 is capable of high caliber rifle protection.
  • B7 level armor that provides armor piercing protection is a part of the unique armored Hellcat.

Regardless of the velocity of the damage coming, these superior vehicles are prepared to handle incoming fire. The International Armoring Company has safely protected over 8,000 vehicles around the world since 1993. Their protection allows drivers to feel more secure in their vehicle with Armormax, their lightest vehicle armor that has a 100% success rate in protecting their clients. The Joker doesn’t stand a chance against this kind of protection!

How Do They Protect The Windshield?

One spot that would appear to be very vulnerable for any vehicle upon any attack with a weapon would be the windshield. With the use of Lightweight Transparent Armor (LTA), a material used for all the armored glass in all its vehicles, there’s a superior level of protection from oncoming fire. LTA is International Armoring Corporation ballistic glass of choice. They offer their protective glass and armor at multiple facilities in multiple countries, including the United States, and use the highest quality materials to ensure safety and success against all sorts of guns and weapons.

Dodge vehicles, including the wicked fast Hellcat, are highly sought after vehicles. Any police force that is serious about protecting their officers would be wise to add these vehicles into their fleet. For the rest of us, there’s nothing wrong with owning a civilian grade piece of muscle car history. The latest 2019 Dodge Charger and the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat vehicles are available at one place. Who wouldn’t want to drive a SRT Hellcat with the powerful HEMI V8 engine that produces an utterly impressive 707 horsepower?!

Then and Now: Dodge Charger Daytona

Photo credit: MotorTrend

The Dodge Charger Daytona is among the most storied muscle cars ever produced. Since the first 1969 Dodge Charger came out, the Dodge Charger Daytona has remained popular over generations thanks to its unique look and immense speed garnered since inception. The first run only lasted an additional model year, but the first two renditions of this popular muscle vehicle are still cherished by car enthusiasts today. The vehicle was reincarnated over 27 years later in 2006 and the popular HEMI engine drove sales for an additional four years, ending its run in 2009. There was a single addition of the Dodge Charger Daytona that came out in 2013. Since 2017, there have been continual models released, most recently, the 2017 Dodge Charger.

The Birth of the Dodge Charger Daytona

After the limited edition 1969 Dodge Charger 500 failed to win after its NASCAR debut, the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona was made. Built as a high-performance, limited-edition version of the Dodge Charger, the Daytona was produced in the summer of 1969 with the sole goal of taking first place at high-profile NASCAR events. Not only did the Charger succeed in winning its first race, the inaugural Talladega 500, the Dodge Charger Daytona was the first vehicle in NASCAR history to break the 200 mph mark, on March 24, 1970, at Talladega, Alabama. Quickly becoming known as the “Winged Warrior” Dodge Charger has a strong history of winning. With 11 years of racing during the 1960s and 1970s, the Charger won 124 NASCAR Cup races and took three drivers to five championships. Richard Petty won three of his seven total NASCAR titles behind the wheel of a Dodge Charger.

27 Years Later, the Dodge Charger Daytona Returns

At the 2005 Chicago Auto Show, the 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona was reintroduced. From the reincarnation of the Dodge Charger Daytona in 2006 through it’s run in 2009, the sales and demand for the Charger Daytona were incredible. It came complete with a black honeycomb grille, unique black “Daytona” and “HEMI” decals. In 2007 through 2009, this special Charger rode on 20-inch wheels, raised from the 18-inch wheels the 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona came with. The five-speed automatic transmission paired with a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine that cranks out 340-horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque was the power package of the 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona. This was improved upon later by the 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona.

2013 Dodge Charger Daytona

The debut of the 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona was enhanced and delivered improved performance. The 370-horsepower HEMI V8, rear-wheel drive and iconic design were met with the modern attributes of the Dodge Charger in 2013. The 10-speaker, 552-watt Beats audio system and 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment is still impressive over half a decade later. While Dodge announced they were taking a break from NASCAR, Dodge was still focused on putting out remarkable production muscle cars.

2017: A Return to Form

Dodge Charger fans had two variations to choose from in 2017 when the Dodge Charger Daytona returned to the lineup. The standard Daytona came with the impressive 5.7-Liter HEMI V8, and the Daytona 392 was equipped with a 6.4-Liter V8 HEMI engine. A black spoiler with wide, matte-black stripes stood out with a large black grille and SRT body kit. Available retro colors include Go Mango, Green Go, TorRed and Yellow Jacket. Today, the Daytona is a package option for the Dodge Charger. The Dodge Charger is expected to be in production through the 2021 model year. With a redesign scheduled for 2021, the Charger is set to be reworked and only time will tell if the Daytona namesake is kept. One thing is for sure, if the Daytona is removed, it’ll return at some point in the future.

10,000th Dodge Pursuit Shipped

Photo credit: Dodge

10,000th Dodge Officer Protection Package was recently shipped. The Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) collaboration with InterMotive, Inc. is a special product built for law enforcement agencies. Enhanced Dodge Durango SUVs and Dodge Charger muscle cars have FCA’s Fleet Safety Group technology added and aid police officers everyday. Let’s go over some of the helpful high tech developed by InterMotive that has enhanced law enforcement safety and some of the perks these special FCA vehicles carry.

Superior Police Vehicles Shipped

Taking a look into the latest Dodge Charger Pursuit police sedan, law enforcement gain the help of InterMotive surveillance mode module technology and the assistance helpful tracking measures that will warn the officers of possible dangers. This is due to the Dodge engineering and FCA’s Fleet Safety Group technology. Combined with the ParkSense rear park assist system and ParkView rear backup camera, any movement behind the vehicle is detected and relayed to the driver.

“The Officer Protection Package is the latest layer of safety to be built into our Charger Pursuit.We knew it was the right thing to do for all the men and women who protect us on a daily basis, and we are gratified to know that over 10,000 of these heroes now have a better chance of avoiding rear ambush occurrences. I’m also pleased to announce that we will continue to offer this package free of charge on our 2019 model-year Dodge Charger Pursuits,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – FCA North America.

How the System Works

Research and development from FCA debuted this sensitive system in 2018 to detect movement and immediately alert those inside the cruiser of the potential danger. This allows officers to look at anything happening behind the vehicle with the help of the live camera monitor. The live camera view is turned on if the sensors go off. If the sensors are set off, law enforcement can choose to lock all doors, automatically raise the front windows, turn the rear lights on and flash all taillights. This technology provides a few extra seconds for police to assess and react to any situation happening. No longer will law enforcement have to worry about a potential ambush attack, potentially saving lives in the process.

Ready. Set. Hellcat Redeye!

Photo credit: Dodge

The best thing about driving a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is knowing just how fast and free the feeling is. Inspiration comes from within the dominant, extra quick SRT Hellcat Redeye with its 797 horsepower engine and a ridiculous 203-mph top speed. Drivers are forewarned; this is barely a street legal vehicle and is best suited on a race track. However, that doesn’t have to stop anyone from showing off what a remarkable, beautiful and powerful muscle vehicle can genuinely embody.

Almost Too Sharp To Touch

There’s no denying the sharp design and bold features of the Redeye are attractive. Few vehicles on the road have such an impact upon first sight. The noticeable Hellcat logo is on each side and the twin-snorkel lid hood with the sleek design throughout will draw attention. So will the high-end performance and speed; ever driven a vehicle that cuts through a quarter-mile in only 10.9 seconds? That’s the kind of speed we are talking about.

Both the Hellcat SRT Redeye and SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody generate 707 lb-ft of torque and handle exceptionally well. The SRT Redeye is only available with the eight-speed automatic transmission and comes stock with impressive Brembo brakes that are fully capable of slowing down the high-speed adrenaline drivers are sure to test their Hellcat Redeye with daily.

SRT Hellcat History

In 2014, the first Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was introduced. Back then, the Hellcat hit 707 horsepower and raised the bar for what engine output in a production vehicle could be. Now, just four years later, the bar has been set even higher. The Redeye is not quite as powerful as the 840 horsepower of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon that came out in 2018, but is quite significant with a wicked engine and body that borrows parts from the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon itself. The success of the first Hellcat was immense as Dodge could hardly make enough in time for the customers appetite.

So, what makes the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye special? Unlike the Demon, this vehicle will have a much lower price point at $69,650 MSRP (plus destination fee) and isn’t under any limited production numbers. There’s no doubt this vehicle is sure to be a hit for any one who wants to feel the rush of owning among the best Dodge Challenger SRT muscle cars ever made.

“As it has been common to do over the past 50 years or so in the muscle car world, we took the biggest engine we had available to us and we mated it with the best car we had available to put it in. So this is the marriage of the Demon powertrain to the Hellcat, ” said Kevin Hellman, Dodge’s brand manager for the Challenger

What Makes the Dodge Hellcat Widebody the Must-Have Car of 2018?

Photo Credit: Dodge, 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody

The Dodge Challenger has a rich history that began in the 1950’s back in Detroit, Michigan. All these decades later, the Dodge Challenger is still the muscle car to own today. Dodge enjoys pushing the envelope to what is possible with their 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody. For those looking to brighten up their fall, they can start by calling this special Dodge Challenger their own. The Hellcat Widebody carries the 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 engine and makes other engines seem small and unimpressive by comparison. There’s very few engines in any muscle car that can compete with the the 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque provided by the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody.

Owners will gain a lighting quick quarter-mile time of 10.9 seconds with this amazing muscle car. If that’s not fast enough, check out the 0-60 mph time of only 3.4 seconds hitting 127 mph. This unique speed and high-performance ability is only the start of why the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody is the must-have muscle car in 2018.

The Muscle Car That Will Turn Heads

Stylish, cool and impressive in every way, drivers gain not only a fast car, but a statement maker. Starting off with the large “Devil’s Rim” aluminum wheels taken from the SRT Demon,the Hellcat Widebody provides optional Pirelli P Zero tires that are flexible and perform well on turns and curves on the road. The Hellcat Widebody comes stocked with a six-piston high-performance Brembo brake system for impressive braking. For a little more style, the Hellcat has strong features like a blacked-out rear lip spoiler and includes extended fender flares.

Let Them Hear You Coming

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody doesn’t wait around once a driver touches the gas pedal. This is a muscle car that explodes with its unique 707 horsepower engine that throttles ahead with the power generated sent to the rear wheels by way of the six-speed or optional eight-speed automatic transmission. It may take some getting used to, but with the added help of traction control, driving a Dodge Challenger as impressive as this one is more fun and exhilarating with each drive. Keep in mind, the “Widebody” name was born out of the extended three-and-a-half inches added to the standard Hellcat’s width. Having the extra inches allows drivers to maintain a better grip on turns and makes the Hellcat Widebody appear like its cousin, the SRT Demon.

All the Amenities of a Dodge Hellcat Widebody

Another factor many overlook is just how spacious and lush the interior is. Dodge provides owners with a widespread interior, an oversized and useful trunk space, and lots of room to house the Hellcat V8 engine. Inside the vehicle are standard air-conditioned and heated seats with a dual-zone climate control feature. Not to mention, there’s also a standard 8.4-inch touchscreen that provides Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with the crisp audio that can only be delivered by an 18-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system. Luxury never looked better with leather bucket seating that includes a new interior seating color option of “Demonic Red Laguna”. Fitting for a vehicle that goes nearly demon fast and looks nicer than just about any vehicle you can find for the price. The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody begins at $65,690 MSRP (plus destination fee.) This all combines to create the must-have muscle car of 2018.

Go For the Best Muscle Car In the Dodge Challenger

Now that you’ve read about the power, don’t you want to experience the performance that is awaiting? Come to Miami Lakes Automall to drive away with the latest 2018 Dodge Challenger today.

Scat Pack 1390 Makes the Challenger Wicked

Miami-Lakes-Scat-Pack-Challenger-2019

Photo Credit: Dodge

All the features that made the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon unique and special have found their way into new Dodge Challenger vehicles. First, in the upcoming 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, and now Demon parts, like an SRT-tuned suspension and Brembo brakes, will be in the newly announced Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320. One thing is for sure, there’s sure to be more Demon influence on the way. For now, we’d like to get into the latest buzz that comes from the new package announced by Dodge. Dodge made the announcement at the 2018 Mile-High National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Nationals in Denver. Let’s see what all the hype is about with this latest Dodge muscle entry into the Challenger lineup.

Experience the Enjoyment of the Challenger

The fun of owning a Dodge Challenger is knowing you have a vehicle capable of winning on a race track. The R/T Scat Pack receives a special adaptive damping system with a Drag Mode that helps shift weight to the end of the vehicle for stronger traction. Along with the other additions like Launch Mode and bigger tires, drivers can expect to be a winner when driving the Challenger R/T Scat Pack. Racing on a drag strip with this new Challenger package is expected for die-hard owners. In fact, that’s how the R/T Scat Pack 1320 received its very name.

1320 is the exact length of feet in a quarter mile. (A quarter mile is where drivers behind the wheel of a Dodge Challenger will smoke just about any sports car.) The reason why the new Challenger is so fast is thanks to the upgrades added to an already fast muscle vehicle. Best of all, the price of owning the newest Dodge Challenger option is vastly less expensive than the SRT Demon was.

Get Impressive Speed At a Reduced Rate

For the racing enthusiast, the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1390 is a more affordable SRT Demon that will help provide more than an entry-level start to high performance driving. Features like Line Lock to assist in heating up the tires before racing on a drag strip, Transbrake that keeps the transmission output shaft to hold the car stationary while the engine revs for a faster push-off and start, Torque Reserve is what also helps provide a better start, along with the additional Launch Assist and Launch Control to help propel this Challenger like never before. This is all capable thanks to the mandatory 8HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission installed with the vehicle. All this goes together to make the 1390 Scat Pack faster than the traditional Scat Pack offered by Dodge by 0.3 seconds in a quarter-mile race.

Taking the Challenger R/T Scat Pack, which begins at $38,995 MSRP (plus destination fee), adding $3,995 for the 1320 package with $1,595 for the 8HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission is all it takes. That price is sure to put a smile on many potential customers faces. Like the SRT Demon, there’s only one seat in the vehicle. To add an additional passenger and rear seats, it costs a $1 for each respective seat. Keep in mind, that will add 114 pounds if added. For those who want to find something less racetrack ready and something more road friendly, we have options that will make you grin all the same at one place.

Find Your Smile at Miami Lakes

All someone has to do to know the difference between a Dodge Challenger and the competition is to test drive one. We hope that you do that with us. We proudly sell the Challenger and have both new 2018 Dodge Challenger models and quality pre-owned Dodge Challenger vehicles. We will help you with any buying, leasing, selling and trade-in offers you have.

If you’re looking for ways to fix up your current vehicle, come in for a check up with an appointment. We’re happy to have our professional sales team take a look and upgrade your vehicle or help with anything from oil changes to tire rotations. We’re happy to help. Come right in for any questions you have, we’re here to make your car buying experience fantastic at Miami Lakes Automall.

The 2018 Dodge Charger Keeps Receiving Awards with J.D. Power APEAL

2018-Dodge-Charger-Miami-Lakes-Automall

 

Photo credit: Dodge

Dodge has earned another award in 2018, this time recognizing the 2018 Dodge Charger for its high quality and performance. After being announced as the winner of Edmunds “Best Retained Value Award”, the Dodge Charger can now add J.D. Power’s Automotive Performance Execution, and Layout (APEAL) Study award to its belt as one of the Top Rated Family Cars. Let’s take a closer look at what this award entails and the details of the latest 2018 Dodge Charger.

J.D. Power Award

J.D. Power uses the results of it’s yearly APEAL Study from buyer’s resources to ensure that customers are educated entirely. Those looking for new vehicles hope to have a clear cut idea as to which vehicle is the most value-driven, reliable and attractive option. That’s exactly what owners of the 2018 Dodge Charger have attested to. The survey is sent out to and completed by  buyers and lessees of new models after they’ve owned their vehicle for at least 90 days.

J.D. Power measures vehicle performance, design, safety and features throughout the survey. Customers love the the appeal brought on by significant horsepower, top-notch handling and retained value with owning the Dodge Charger. It’s easy to see why a spacious ride, user-friendly infotainment system, and nine trims to choose from make the 2018 Dodge Charger stand out from the crowd. With an APEAL Power Circle Rating of 4-out-of-5, the Dodge Charger won along with four other vehicles. This is thanks to the high level engineering and aforementioned reliability, sleek look and impressive value.

Looking Into the 2018 Dodge Charger

With a base price of $30,495 MSRP (Plus Destination Fee), the 2018 Dodge Charger SXT is a great choice and a superb muscle car. For owners looking for a little more engine power, the upgraded 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine will do the trick. Drivers experience better performance than the 3.6-liter engine as well as gain improved fuel economy with the built in multi-displacement system (MDS) that helps to conserve fuel. MDS is modern technology that rewards each owner with intelligent engine performance and greater fuel efficiency. With MDS, when an engine is cruising, four-of-the-eight cylinders are turned off to conserve fuel. This is one of the features that helped earn the award from J.D. Power. A total of 370 horsepower and nearly 400 Ib-ft of torque can be generated by the V8 engine that powers the Dodge Charger R/T and Daytona trim. Owners can expect 16 city and 25 highway MPG with either of those trims.

The 2018 Dodge Charger SRT 392 is equipped with the 392 HEMI SRT V8 engine that produces 485 horsepower and 475 Ib-ft of torque and gets drivers a fuel economy 18 MPG combined. The 2018 Dodge Charger SRT 392 starts at $51,145 MSRP (Plus Destination Fee) and offers more bang-for-buck horsepower. Not a bad choice for drivers, especially those that want to stand out and drive a muscle car with serious performance.

For drivers that want to own the high-end 2018 Dodge Charger, the SRT Hellcat, they will find an exceptional ride. In fact, owners will be hard pressed to find a faster four-door vehicle. Equipped with the superb supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine, the 2018 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat produces 707 horsepower, 650 lb-ft of torque. This SRT Hellcat has a lighting fast record of 0-60 mph time of just 3.4 seconds! The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat costs $66,295 MSRP (Plus Destination Fee).

2019 Dodge Durango Revealed For Fall Debut

2019-Dodge-Durango-Miami-Lakes-Automall-New

Photo credit: Dodge

Customers looking for a vehicle that fits every personality in the family should go with the three-row SUV 2019 Dodge Durango. This is a vehicle that provides remarkable power and comfort and will put a smile on everyone’s face. With the ninth-generation Durango, the line-up consists of five trims. Those five trims include the SXT, GT, R/T, Citadel and SRT, with many configurations and options available for drivers to choose from. Make no mistake, the 2019 Dodge Durango is a beast with comfort throughout, with monstrous engine options capable of providing more muscle than most expect out of a three-row SUV. Let’s examine what makes the new Durango something special.

Phenomenal Engine Strength

Three powertrain options are available for the 2019 Durango. The standard engine is the powerful 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 engine that gives drivers 293 horsepower. Upgrade to the 5.7-Liter V8 engine for 360 horsepower and for those that want the top-tier performance offered by the Dodge Durango, there’s nothing better than the 475 horsepower in the 6.4-Liter V8 Durango SRT. The 2019 Dodge Durango SRT is part of the Street Racing Technology (SRT) family, which can only mean one thing – lighting quick speed! And despite being so quick and agile, there’s no drop off with better than modest fuel economy. All V6 models have a fuel economy of 18/25 city/highway MPG, a welcomed perk of the Durango, but consumers can get up to 19 city and 26 highway MPG with the rear-wheel-drive option. Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel-drive is optional for the 2019 Dodge Durango. Whichever makes more sense for practical reasons, side with that. Drivers don’t have to sacrifice the power for decent gas mileage, though. The V8 engine is standard on the R/T trim, optional for the Citadel, and has an EPA of 14/22 city/highway MPG.

Superior Durango Interior

What’s best of all about the Durango might be all the space owners and passengers will have. With the rear seats down in this three-row SUV, owners will have 43.3 cubic-feet of storage room and owners can count on 85 cubic-feet of total storage space with both the second and third rows folded down. The front seats are firm and supportive, the second room supports great leg room and the individual captain’s chair option for every trim except the SXT is impressive and comfortable.

Quality and comfort are just part of what make the 2019 Durango interior so nice. The available soft leather upholstery for all trims provides a high-end look to this otherwise fierce vehicle. Leather is standard for every trim except the SXT and GT. The muscle look is defined with the GT providing the same style as the SRT with an optional domed hood with functional air extractors. The Citadel trim provides a strong presence of chrome plated detail throughout the vehicle. The SXT and GT have a standard 7-inch touchscreen, while the higher trims have an 8-inch touchscreen.

Towing Strength?

Not every driver will need to tow heavy objects, but for those who need extra power and hauling capabilities, there’s no worries with the 8,700 maximum towing capacity for the 2019 Durango. With the ability to haul more than 4 tons, drivers can get the job done with ease. The Durango SRT is our pick for the most versatile vehicles offered by Dodge. The Durango provides impressive steering and hauling powers to give every driver the option to do some heavy lifting.

Dodge Charger Is the Most Searched Muscle Car

2018 Dodge Charger Super Scat Pack

Photo credit: Dodge

Ever heard of the Dodge Charger? You know the one. That’s America’s most-searched muscle car according to a new finding by ClassicCars.com. Perhaps the beauty of driving one, the roar of the engine and the years of being an American classic might have led to this honor.

“Nothing truly personifies American car collector’s pride, passion and freedom like a muscle car. They are powerful, beautiful, designed for maximum performance. It makes sense that these cars are searched for so often,” said Roger Falcione, president and chief executive of ClassicCars.com.

Across 30 states, the Dodge Charger was the most researched muscle vehicle from June 2017 to June 2018, according to ClassicCars.com. The Midwest and South were particularly interested in the Dodge Charger, including here in Florida with the 1969 Dodge Charger enjoying the first place finish among searches. The Ford Mustang received quite a number of searches as well; in fact, they tied with Dodge for the top spot overall in a lock. Both Detroit-made, automotive giants of the muscle world have their enduring fanbases for a reason. For Dodge, the powerful and elegant style has captivated an audience since inception in 1964, with the first car being produced in 1966. While the Dodge Charger was originally a two-door muscle car, as they typically are, by 2006, the Dodge Charger became sold as a four-door sedan, returning for the first time since 1987.

Top-Muscle-Car-Search-Map-Miami-Lakes-Automall

Of course, the early years of the Dodge Charger are what drove most of the top searches. The early years of the Charger brand launched and found mainstream appeal by 1968 with the second generation Charger, the B-body with an undivided grill, rounded tail lights and sharp muscle tone that remains revered today. The appeal hasn’t faded, but has actually strengthened over many years. This is to be expected as the popularity has expanded and compounded with each passing year.

What Changes Are Expected For the Next Dodge Charger?

Returning with a 6.2-Liter supercharger HEMI V8 in the new 2019 Charger Hellcat that now produces 717 horsepower and 656 lb-ft of torque, there’s hardly a performance vehicle out there able to come anywhere close to this amount of power. The added After-Run Chiller helps keep the cooling of the supercharger engine and charge-air cooler after the engine is shut off to help return the engine to normal temperatures faster. These are some of the features from the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon that was first released last year. For drivers that want all-wheel-drive, they can only find that in the base SXT model with a 3.6 Pentastar engine under the hood. The 2019 Dodge Charger will be available later in 2018.

Find Your Latest Dodge Charger With Us

Miami Lakes Automall makes it beyond easy for customers to find what they want and our friendly team is happy to show off our entire lineup.

Why Do Sports Cars Only Have Two Doors?

2019-Dodge-Challenger-SRT-Hellcat-Redeye-Widebody-Miami-Lakes-Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

Sports vehicles attempt to gain an edge when they race, and a vehicle with more weight to haul is simply at a disadvantage. Aside from being lighter with a shorter vehicle length, as well as having less seating for more guests, two seaters are just more convenient. Typically, drivers that go with a two-seat option don’t need the extra room. A fast vehicle owner won’t need the room because they probably won’t be going at very high speeds with anyone else in the vehicle and certainly not with kids in the vehicle. However, for those that drive alone more often than not, that’s where the fun of having a sports or muscle vehicle draws interest.

So, many coupe and muscle cars don’t come with rear seats, but why is that? Simply put, there’s more weight savings with two doors versus four doors typically. Why should a vehicle be held back by extra seats? That’s just unnecessary weight. Equally important, two doors create a more rigid and lightweight structure, and that’s not to discount that the aesthetic look of a muscle vehicle or sports car just look better with two doors. Plus, a smaller vehicle has a better turning radius and helps sharpen and quicken the steering for drivers. This is due to most two-door vehicles having a shorter wheelbase. Two-door sports cars are easier to park and handle overall as well.

How Do Insurance Companies Define Sports Cars

Every insurance company defines a sports car slightly differently, but most of the time, having two doors is the first thing they look at. Engine size, height and weight are other factors that are considered. Two door cars are deemed less safe because they are smaller. Sports cars are also lower to the ground traditionally. From the look of the sports car compared to a sedan vehicle, there’s an obvious difference. Usually the longer look would be found with a sedan, compared to a sport cars car. Sedans might have a broader appeal than coupes or tighter sports cars, but there’s a market that sports and muscle vehicles have.

Muscle and sports cars tap into the excitement that is generated with each start of the engine by the driver. Drivers of smaller vehicles know they can move faster than larger vehicles and this is especially true of the muscle and sports car variety. When considering a vehicle to buy, consider cargo space, trunk room and whether or not you want to have slower or faster vehicle performance. Vehicles like a 2018 Dodge Challenger or 2019 Chevy Corvette are extremely fun and fast to drive. If you haven’t driven one, now is your chance.

Haven’t Tried a Muscle Vehicle Before?

Wondering if you should try a sports vehicle out with a test drive? Check out our wide variety of vehicles, from our latest lineup of new vehicles to our quality pre-owned vehicles. We can help you with financing, for any purchase, buying, leasing or if you need to sell or trade-in your current vehicle; that’s all possible at Miami Lakes Automall. Our friendly team is ready to help make your summer more fun with these vehicles that provide a remarkable experience.
