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

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

Dodge Muscle Owners Are Youngest In Muscle Car Segment

2019 Dodge Challenger Miami Lakes Automall

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. Want to see what a Dodge muscle car would look like on a test-drive? Come to Miami Lakes Automall

Special Edition Dodge Muscle Cars Add Remarkable Value

2019 Charger Octane Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: FCA

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.

A brand new incentives program has launched for three of the top Dodge brand vehicles. FCA is celebrating the success after news broke of their second-quarter success, the company’s business increased in North America with a 14% year-over-year increase in profit.

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? Now is the time to drive off in a new Challenger, Charger or Durango.

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

Photo credit: Dodge

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.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has unveiled a new Uconnect Market Commerce Platform, which will allow customers to select real-time reservations and buy products and services right from the vehicle. Joining the Uconnect system and creating items available for purchase are businesses like Shell, ParkWhiz, Domino’s among others. There’s never been an easier way to enjoy driving and take care of the little things along the way. 

The Perks of Uconnect

2020 Dodge Charger Widebody Nears Debut

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. The widebody is not only faster but has better braking to allow it to stop shorter. The stopping distance is actually four feet shorter at 107 feet when stopping at 60 mph. We can’t wait to get our hands on this remarkable muscle! For drivers that want to experience the rush of driving a Dodge muscle car, we can help today!

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.

Redeye Miami Lakes Automall

2019 Dodge Challenger Pricing

The base model Challenger starts at $27,595 MSRP (plus destination fee), and the high-end SRT Hellcat Redeye starts at $71,250 MSRP (plus destination fee), which is $15,000 or so less than the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, despite being made of Demon parts and only slightly less powerful.

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.

Drive Dodge With Us AT Miami Lakes Automall

You’ve probably wanted to test drive a Dodge vehicle for a long, long time. Well, today might be a great chance to try at Miami Lakes Automall.

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.

Come to Miami Lakes Automall For Your Automotive Needs

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

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. The entry-level powertrain for the Durango includes the excellent 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar V6 engine. Owners will enjoy a trustworthy engine with remarkable strength that provides 295 horsepower. This engine is paired to the TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission and provides a best-in-class V6 highway fuel economy of 30 MPG.  

Craving a more spirited powertrain option? Side with 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine. 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. Gain solid towing with the R/T trim that carries a best-in-class maximum towing capacity of 7,400 pounds.

Step into the true highlight of the 2019 Dodge Durango in the high-end SRT trim. The premier engine option makes this the fastest three-row SUV on the market with a remarkable 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds. 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

Photo credit: Dodge

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.

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

Speedkore Demon Miami Lakes

Photo credit: CarInMyLife

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!

Muscleville: The Time to Buy Muscle Has Arrived

2019 Dodge Challenger RT ST Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

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. Driving will never be a chore for customers, whether they are driving in Muscleville or anywhere in the world if they have the keys to the right vehicle.

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

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.

So, what is the starting price of the SRT Redeye? Drivers can get their hands on the SRT Redeye for $71,045 MSRP (plus destination fee). We’re excited to mention that newest Dodge Challenger, the phenomenal SRT Hellcat Redeye is available at Miami Lakes Automall.

Dodge and Miami Lakes Automall Want You!

Now that you’ve learned about the unmatched speed and power of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, don’t you want to experience the performance that is awaiting?

2020 Dodge Charger Set To Have First Ever Widebody Trims

2019 Dodge Charger SRT Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

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 Challenger Shakedown Miami Lakes Automall

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.

At Miami Lakes Automall, we always take care of our customers. Check out our entire lineup of new Dodge Challengers, like the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.

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.

Come For A Test Drive At Miami Lakes Automall

Miami Lakes Automall has the new 2019 Chrysler 300 and 2019 Chrysler Pacifica available for a test-drive. We’re thrilled to help our customers find the vehicle they are hoping to drive home.

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.

2019 Dodge Charger and Jeep® Wrangler Win 2019 ALG Residual Value Awards

2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Dodge

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.

Find Both Vehicles At Miami Lakes Automall

Want to take a 2019 Jeep Wrangler or 2019 Dodge Charger for a spin? We have both available today. If you’re looking for pricing options that allow you to buy what you want, our automotive finance team can help make things easier.

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.

Are you an ultimate Fan of Dodge Muscle?

Dodge has introduced an all-new 1320 Club perfect for Dodge fanatics to embrace. For those that love quarter-mile drag racing and championing their very own Dodge muscle cars, members of the 1320 Club will have the opportunity to show off their official drag strip feats with satisfaction.

The 1320 Club operates closely with the Dodge Garage, the brand’s digital content center for racing and car enthusiasts, which also serves as a conduit to supply additional parts to improve performance and make any Dodge vehicle that much quicker.

Driver’s will also be able to showcase physical achievement badges on their Dodge vehicles. Achievement badges and decals will be prepared in gray for Stock or red for Modified.

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

1320 Club: Sign Up Today

1320 Dodge Scat Pack Miami Lakes Automall

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.

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. Dodge is pulling out all the stops for the new wave of new vehicles and the place to find them will be Miami Lakes Automall.

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

Photo credit: Dodge

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Why Do Sports Cars Only Have Two Doors?

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.

Digital Trends has put together a list of their favorite vehicles for their 2019 Best Family Cars, which included the Dodge Durango. The 2019 Dodge Durango has been viewed as the total package for customers looking for a sizable vehicle option, fast and comfortable for the driver and passengers alike. Digital Trend also measures the driving enjoyment and technology, as well as performance. These are items the Durango offers in spades across each trim.  Let’s look at everything that made the Durango stand out.

More Digital Trend Testing

When taking a look at each vehicle, the Digital Trend automotive team follows its guidelines with a long process that measures the interior and exterior thoroughly. They will test and examine the safety of the vehicle in various controlled environments. Drivers go on real-world driving tests on highways, small roads and even off-road as well as race tracks to determine the overall feel of the vehicle. Among the options for families, few vehicles have the pedigree the Durango has earned with its performance and quality materials.

“The Dodge Durango SRT shows that family cars can be fun and quick. Aside from its awesome HEMI® power, the Durango SRT also ticks practical family-car boxes,”  Digital Trends wrote. 

Drive Our Favorite Durango Trim

The 2018 Dodge Durango was the first to introduce the Street Racing Technology (SRT) Durango trim. Today, this version of the Durango has improved. For customers looking for the most out of this premium trim, we say opt for the 2019 Dodge Durango SRT. Experience all that FCA and Dodge can offer with the “Charger of the SUVs”. What will customers find in the latest Durango SRT? The fastest quarter-mile time for any SUV at just 12.9 seconds! We can’t say enough good things about the 6.4-Liter V8 engine that hits 475 horsepower and offers drivers a strong, bold appearance. The sleek look matches the immensely stout Best-in-class torque and towing of 470 lb-ft and 8,700 lbs respectively. America’s fastest and most capable three-row SUV has never been better. To celebrate the long run and success the Durango has had, FCA and Dodge introduced a new special anniversary edition earlier in 2019. 

Celebrating the Longevity of the Durango

The 35th Anniversary Dodge Durango is an available option for customers. The debut of the first Durango was back in 1984 and today the Durango is the top-selling Dodge vehicle. The 35th Anniversary edition adds a badge logo on the floor mat, grille and one on the liftgate. For owners, the 2019 Dodge Durango 35th anniversary edition offers six colors including Black Onyx, Granite Crystal, IndiGo Blue, Octane Red, Billet Silver Metallic and White Knuckle.
