The long history of the Dodge brand goes back many decades, but regarding one particular nameplate, the Charger, we are going to highlight one concept that debuted but did not turn into what was originally shown to customers. While many Dodge vehicles have come and gone obvious, but the brand first brought out the Charger in 1999. As automakers look to the past sometimes when restoring an old nameplate or basing a new vehicle with cues from a former star vehicle, we can always look back to acknowledge the famed records of the Dodge brand. Long before the intentions of building a new EV Dodge concepts, we had the Charger concept that debuted before the world over 21 years ago.

Observing At the 1999 Dodge Charger R/T Concept

The modern buzz to hit the interwebz is the sports car that was the 1999 Dodge Charger RT concept. Back then, the Dodge Charger R/T was first rolled out a firm seven years before the Dodge brand would offer the same body in the Dodge Charger today. As the 2021 Dodge Charger, we are used to impressive handling, speed, and high-octane fun. We also can admire the perks that have come as a consequence of the Dodge brand producing back the 2021 Dodge Challenger. But, that story is for a different day; let’s get into what made the 1999 Dodge concept so attractive.

Dodge Brand’s 1999 Take With the Charger

Back when the entire Dodge brand was headed by the Chrysler brand that desired to put together the Dodge brand in a new light with many ideas that were never made, including a Jeepster concept. This Charger vehicle would end up as flagship vehicle for the brand, but that wasn’t obvious till the vehicle was highly-sought after in 2006. The Charger was first thought of as a sports car, not quite a muscle car, and the gas mileage was somewhat greater than many would imagine. The debut was at the 1999 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. This Dodge Charger concept was more like a Dodge Viper with its silky and extended exterior appearance. The R/T concept had a 4.7-Liter V8 naturally-aspirated engine. The total output was 325 horsepower and a stunning look that for some reason wasn’t turned into a production car.

Dodge added this vehicle to its lineup eventually, but the famed concept ended up in one video game despite never being put out. The Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition allowed this car as a possible choice for gamers back in 2005, a full six years later. The Dodge brand has tons of experience with building up the Charger to become one of the most celebrated muscle cars ever made. Want to test-drive one now? We can help make that potential at Miami Lakes Automall today!

Dodge Teases New Electric Muscle Car

Dodge EV Miami Lakes Automall

We have received the news we were waiting for; Dodge has first introduced the first image of the future Dodge EV yet to be named. This will be the world’s first all-electric production muscle car. Dodge delivered a new teaser image of what buyers will fantasize about till more is revealed. Currently, the 2021 Dodge Challenger is the freshest Dodge muscle car, but not for long as we know over the summer the next model year, the 2022 Dodge Challenger will debut. The shift has now shined brightly to the newest creation set to debut in 2024. We can expect the next generation of Dodge muscle cars, both the Charger and the Challenger to not only ride on a new platform and offer an entirely new experience both inside and out, to start in less than three short years. As we’ve covered, the electric future of the Dodge brand, as well as the automotive industry as a whole, was a cavalier move we considered to be important to the muscle car segment. Now, the first step of progress has finally been revealed.

Dodge Looking To Curb Climate Change

The new crop of the Charger and Challenger models, if they are the ones selected to offer an electric experience, are a welcomed sight to drivers and dealerships alike. Dodge will offer up the electrified trim to be named as Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, has declared a tag line to go with the muscle car brand. “Tear Up the Streets, Not the Planet” and the electric Dodge car will commence the means of moving away from gasoline-powered muscle cars to newly made electric vehicles. The Dodge brand offered a comment that included “Dodge will not sell electric cars, but will sell American muscle” as the brand maintains their designers have attained the end of what they can produce from internal combustion motors. The Dodge brand “has an obligation to embrace” electrification for a more all-embracing high-performance future. There is some consideration that the first-ever electric muscle car made by Dodge (or anywhere else) will be designated as something brand new. 

We have our view the Dodge brand will increase its EV skills to both the Charger and the Challenger and even build a new EV nameplate, either through improving an older title or creating a new one. The next judgment will be up to the buyers to decide how much they want to drive a Dodge EV. We’ve focused on this story, as the Dodge EV articles from our database show, but we are happy to see the newest results. 

Dodge Prepares To Build Multiple Electric Vehicles And More Plans Revealed

There is a feeling within the Dodge community that the V8 engines of today are going to skyrocket in value. The most obvious reason is Dodge is going out of the gasoline-focused V8 powertrains business and headed to an electric future. There have been some new reports that though the electrification plans are new, they are going full force into the commitment towards building the brand with EV intentions for each vehicle. The report names Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, as the force behind turning Dodge into the premiere brand among its many options. 

Six All-Electric Vehicles Are Being Made

Dodge is rumored to have as many as “six all-electric vehicles currently in the styling studio in Auburn Hills, Michigan.” There is also news that “at least one, but probably several plug-in hybrids” are slated to be created. Whether this is concept vehicles or the turning of a new leaf for the Dodge brand, the report from The Detroit Bureau has Dodge making big changes. While this news is nothing new, we now have some more light shed on what is expected to change for the brand. The days of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon or even the follow up vehicles in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye or Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock, we can expect changes to start showing by next year. Dodge will have no problem doing all the hard work towards its electric future alone. According to another report, the Dodge brand has passed on getting any assistance from Tesla.

The Final Days of Purely Gasoline Driven Muscle?

The 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger will offer a variant of change as the new-generation is expected to show. The other brands under the guidance of Stellantis have already pushed out the latest plug-in hybrid or fully electric vehicles in the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel and Jeep Wrangler 4xe trim. The best EVs in the world could one day arrive in the form of the greatest muscle cars available; all included from the Dodge brand! Keep in mind that Stellantis has already decided to move the Dodge brand into a new plan that was revealed earlier this month when plans were described, “Between 2025 and 2030, our product range will gradually become purely electric. This will be a radical change,” Stellantis CEO Oilvier Francois. The future is rapidly approaching and our goal is to remain as prepared as we are today at providing our customers with the newest Dodge vehicles.

Dodge Ready To Make Durango Faster For 2022 Model Year

Good news for those who were wondering if the 2020 global pandemic was still affecting the automotive industry. For some companies that might be the case, but Dodge has expanded its Dodge Durango production by over 50% in terms of volume. If that doesn’t answer the question for the fact the pandemic has come to somewhat of a halt, Dodge is prepared to continue offering the fast and furious Durango. The top-tier three-row large Dodge SUV option is preparing for the next model year with greater perks offered to customers.

Durango Long Established Perks: Speed and Power

The 2022 Dodge Durango has improved the power and the speed. The optional 6.4-Liter HEMI V8 engine offers 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The top speed of 180 mph is the fastest option for the SUV segment. The high-performance SUV has comfortable aspects all throughout the center including among many features; a 19-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system, a power sunroof, plus a rear-seat DVD system with the Premium Interior package are all excellent choices. A tech package extends advances in safety including blind-spot and rear cross-traffic detection. For those who want a large-size SUV that can fit eight safely, this is the choice to secure. Owners can attest, the Dodge Durango SRT is the quickest three-row SUV on the market with its extraordinary 4.4 second 0-60 time. Of course, while the SRT trim presents all these features, all Durango trims offer a lot for customers to appreciate. 

The End of the Short-Lived Durango SRT Hellcat 

The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat trim is off the board for the 2022 Durango however. New regulations have been added to the Durango including limiting the evaporative emissions of the vehicles, holding back the chance to continue the Durango SRT Hellcat. The upcoming production of the Durango will include all the trims from the previous year, except for a lone 3,000 vehicles that will complete the order of the fastest-three-row production SUV on the market. 

“When we switch to ’22 model year, there’s new evaporative emission requirements that come in that the Hellcat engine does not meet in that platform. And with the change in platforms for the next generation Jeep Grand Cherokee, it’s a one year cycle,” said Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis

Dodge Ushering In A New Era For Buyers

Promising clues are being reported about the next steps of the Dodge brand. Dodge has determined to put a check on the V8 era that has advanced since Dodge returned the Dodge Charger muscle car for customers in 2006. During the last fifteen years, we’ve observed the increase of some of the most dominant muscle cars in mass production. The 2021 Dodge Charger and 2021 Dodge Challenger are both striking examples of where the brand currently stands, but what can we expect going ahead as the 2020s are already flying by? Early sales in 2021 saw Dodge move vehicles at a higher rate for the Dodge Durango, Charger, and Challenger models. This is a promising display that will empower more buyers to join the Dodge brand. So who is joining Dodge lately?

Dodge Growing With Younger Generation

From sales figures, an apparent trend has taken place for several years. Dodge has led the way with sales for the younger buyers. The Dodge brand knows where the future is headed, as the path towards electric vehicles (EVs) is the goal. Dodge is also aware that compared to rivals, they have the youngest buyers compared to other manufacturers like Chevrolet or Ford. Dodge first noted this a couple of years ago but has followed up with more evidence that they sell their vehicles to “the youngest demographic in the industry” according to Dodge. 

The car-buying demographic that presents most of Dodge’s business is diverse including the second-highest quantity of Asian, African Americans, and Latin buyers according to the Head of the Dodge Brand Sales Operations, Matt McAlear. The broad variety of V6 and V8 powertrains included in Dodge vehicles has pushed sales for years and extends to a new crop of buyers. However, the scope of these vehicles might alter with the renewed focus of Stellantis (parent company of Dodge) as they look to offer more fuel-efficient vehicles. 

2021 Has Proved Some Impressive Success

Dodge has seen an increase in sales that should exceed pre-pandemic numbers set in 2019. Dodge had begun to bring the focus away from creating 800 horsepower vehicles like the Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. However, there was a promise to continue the SRT (Street Racing Technology) vehicles for the near future. While these are the most impressive vehicles for any owner to want, they aren’t meeting the goal of what the future holds for the Dodge brand and its EV intentions.

“There hasn’t been a date drawn in the sand saying you’ll no longer be able to buy an iron block Hemi anymore, but everybody knows it’s coming and they want to enjoy [the engine] while they can. The replacements are going to be so much more exciting,” stated Matt McAlear, Dodge’s head of sales operations.

Dodge Pushes Street Racing Technology To New Heights

Most recently, regarding the Dodge brand, there were questions raised about whether Dodge will still deliver the fastest vehicles made in mass production anywhere in the world. Dodge settled on keeping the promise to offer these impressive vehicles for the present, future, and beyond. Like the rest of the competition, Dodge is ready to defend its high-octane, high-performance. The strongest and fastest Dodge muscle cars aren’t only quick for Dodge, they are the quickest among all mass-production sedans in the entire world. Recognition should be given to Dodge’s engine power created by the monstrous 6.2-Liter HEMI high-output V8 powertrain. The engine reaches 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. When we think of Dodge vehicles today, we think of the most agile and most robust options known as SRT vehicles. Allow us to present our readers a concise history of the SRT and what buyers will notice if they go for one this summer. 

Inside the Perks of SRT Vehicles

We look at each SRT “Street Racing Technology” vehicle differently, but they all hold the main purpose of the Dodge brand. For those that want an extraordinary and heart-racing reality when behind the wheel should opt for any of the newest Dodge SRT models. Originally, the SRT vehicles started as the Team Viper members of the Dodge Viper were venturing to create a new platform for vehicles. Team Viper worked hand and hand with the Plymouth Prowler. Dodge is still focused on bettering their products by creating more horsepower and EV possibilities.

Drivers looking for a remarkable vehicle should look no further than what Dodge has understood after years of hard work with its 2021 model year collection. The SRT society includes the famed 2021 Dodge Challenger coupe muscle car, 2021 Dodge Charger sedan muscle car, and the 2021 Dodge Durango SUV. The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, which is set above the Hellcat Widebody and is the prized option for the Charger lineup, starting at $80,090 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye begins at $72,295 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The entry point for the Dodge Challenger SRT is the Hellcat that begins at a low $59,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee). 

What Kind of Performance Can Owners Expect?

The 2021 Dodge Challenger Hellcat comes with an impressive array of options and a standard engine experience that rewards drivers with a 0-60 mph time of just 3.7 seconds. Remarkably, the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat hits a 0 to 60 mph time in a mere 3.5 seconds! For those customers that want to test-drive a new Dodge vehicle, chat with us today about how we can make the process easier than expected. The prices are not for the faith of heart, but for those who are ready to make an investment towards something they will appreciate and feel secure with. The Dodge muscle family will always welcome new members!

Dodge Doesn’t Need Any Additional EV Help From Tesla

Dodge is racing ahead of the muscle car segment, firing on all cylinders. The first-quarter of Dodge sales already in the books, with a wide margin gained in just the first three months. The automaker is pushing its muscle brand with an eye in the past and the build towards the future. As electrification becomes less of a subtle focus and the main focus of the automotive industry, brands like Dodge will have to keep in step. This has not been lost on the Dodge brass at the top of the ladder. 

“The days of an iron-block supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 are numbered. They’re absolutely numbered because of all the compliance costs. But the performance that those vehicles generate is not numbered,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge CEO. 

The Move Away From Muscle?

What change can we expect? While we are not certain about the first electric vehicle that will be offered by Dodge, we know there will be one. Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, has helped to push every brand a part of the company into a new electric vehicle territory. The next couple years will see new 2023 and 2024 model year vehicles offer the future of the brand. Dodge has not settled down composing its greatest efforts in vehicles like the 2020 Dodge Challenger Super Stock. However, we know the Dodge brand is no longer looking to put out the horsepower in vehicles like this or the one-year-run of the famed 2018 Dodge SRT Demon, a Challenger that first pushed the brand into the 800+ horsepower territory that the Super Stock offers. 

No Help From Tesla Required

While there was a report that Tesla might be involved in helping the Stellantis brands, like Dodge, to gain a step up on the EV production, that is no longer the case. When speaking about the tax credits and investments Stellantis has to worry about in the global market, the truth is they are more than capable of handling the push towards EV. Just the right amount of forward thinking will go a long way for the Dodge brand as they look to make their own mark on the EV market without the help from competitors, like Tesla. 

“With the electrical technology that PSA brought to Stellantis, we will meet carbon dioxide emission regulations as early as this year. Thus, we will not need to call on European CO2 credits and FCA will no longer have to pool with Tesla or anyone,” remarked Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares

Dodge Challenger Daytona, First Production Vehicle To Surpass 200 MPH, Goes On Sale

Dodge has built plenty of vehicles that are worthy of recognition. Today, we highlight the news of one particular Dodge muscle car that took the world by storm years ago. The 1969 Dodge Challenger Daytona that produced a record-breaking 200 plus miles per hour speed. Back when this vehicle achieved this famous mark, becoming the first Dodge vehicle to do so, the world was a lot different. The role of NASCAR vehicles and racers helped spurt this growth in high-octane production at this time, but few vehicles will ever compete against something as unique and acclaimed. There’s only one of these vehicles that can state their claim to being a piece of muscle car history.

The Unique Dodge Challenger Daytona

Though Dodge recently introduced a Special Edition Dodge Challenger Daytona for the 50th anniversary of the Challenger Daytona, this lone option is set to be sold at an auction. Fully restored and ready for a new owner, the price range is somewhere around the $750,000 to million dollar mark. The famed “Blue Car” as it was known to insiders at Dodge decades ago is known for its unique and distinctive exterior compete with its bright blue body color and large rear wings that are noticeable from a mile away. The first official lap of this vehicle saw a 200.447 mph mark back on March, 24th, 1970 when it was raced by Buddy Baker at Talladega. We have the unique privilege of seeing this iconic piece of history be sold and learn what will happen next. Perhaps a museum or private collector will take this vehicle into its collection.

The Rich Dodge Daytona History

Dodge is going the route few automakers are capable of; producing the fastest production muscle cars for its buyers, but we know this piece of history is unique. The 1969 Dodge Challenger Daytona hit was much as 575 horsepower all the way back then thanks to its 426 HEMI V8 engine and today, while there are higher trims in the Challenger catalog that offer that strength, the base engine found in the Dodge Challenger does not eclipse that output. Keep in mind, not only did this iconic Challenger back in 1970 surpass 200 mph, it was the only vehicle to do this ever at that point in time. That’s why we should expect to see a price somewhere over a hundred times what the cost was when the vehicle debuted. For more information on any of the newest Dodge products, count on us at Miami Lakes Automall to share the news. Come in for a test-drive to experience Dodge muscle today!

Dodge Plans To Finish 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Orders

By bradr | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, April 16th, 2021 at 2:02 PM

Normally when a brand says they won’t add more vehicles to a rare vehicle, they won’t change, but sometimes the landscape of the automotive world is altered quicker than expected. The Dodge brand had come out and reported the SRT Hellcat trim would only last for one year, but the orders were sold out way faster than the brand imagined they would. So, now what started as only an order of 2,000 units of the 710-horsepower Durango SRT Hellcat it plans to build; the SRT Hellcat moved every last model in only one quarter. Speaking of solid sales, the first-quarter was quite impressive for the Dodge brand and the Durango is one reason why.

2021 Durango Is A Highly Sought After Vehicle

Upon its debut, the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat was an astonishing surprise. Sales for it reflected its popularity as it sold as speedy as the pace the Dodge SUV drives. Recollect the 2021 Durango has an impressive acceleration of 0 to 60 MPG with its 3.5-second mark. With the market outpacing supply, Dodge has chosen to proceed to manufacture further Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat vehicles for the foreseeable future to complete the order list that was made, but not achieved. While we don’t know how long this stock run will go on, but as long as the SRT Hellcat trim is available, we know many upcoming Dodge owners will be happy to learn this interest in the vehicle turned into a real purchase. Dodge is aiming to complete this plan and note the interest of customers seeking a future SRT Hellcat. Perhaps by that time, there will be more vehicles outside its muscle car lineup; just like when Dodge created with the Durango originally. An important thing to note is why the Durango SRT Hellcat run was rare.

Why the 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat Run Is Limited

Dodge company director Bob Broderdorf has said Dodge had more sold orders than build slots in the system. Rather than forcing dealerships to drop sales, they opted to avoid a hand-selection and instead fill each request the brand has gained so far. This move won’t initiate the process or re-start the register, but those who had previously asked for the chance to purchase one Durango SRT Hellcat will get their request filled. Developing additional SRT Hellcats is not as easy as it appears. Dodge said it can only produce the model for around a half year because the Jefferson North assembly plant on the outskirts of Detroit, Michigan, is set to convert its operation to build the next-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee.

“As we finalized the production plan for this amazing SUV, we found a way to move some 6.2-liter Hemi Hellcat V8 engines from other vehicles to ensure every sold order in our systems will get built,” added Broderdorf in an interview with Dodge Garage, the official publication of Stellantis.

When To Expect the Orders Completion

As of note, the Hellcat-powered Durango doesn’t mesh with the emissions statutes listed to come into effect nationally for the 2022 model year. This move eased Dodge to set the SUV for another limited Durango SRT Hellcat push. Dodge shifted its parts supply channels to send extra Hellcat parts to the Durango assembly line. These new SRT Hellcat Durango vehicles are set to maintain manufacturing this summer in June 2021. 

Dodge revealed nothing else concerning the production arriving soon for the next group of 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat vehicles. We’re expecting Dodge will announce a final number when production starts to know how exclusive the vehicle will be. To learn extra details about the Dodge Durango and its special SRT Hellcat trim, check with us at Miami Lakes Auto.

Dodge Sees Remarkable Growth In First-Quarter of 2021

Dodge has focused their efforts towards producing high caliber quality products that can stand the test of time. Just check out what kind of classics Dodge created from the inception of the Challenger muscle car. For the upcoming 2022 model year, we expect some surprises along the way. 2020 introduced the first-ever SRT Super Stock muscle car and Dodge might possibly look to improve on that creation this year. We do know, Dodge has set in motion ways to improve the brand and sales will reflect these changes, but the rise of sales within the Dodge brand is remarkable. Allow us to cover the strides Dodge has seen after one-quarter of the way through 2021.

2021 Marks New Imprint of Dodge Brand

Dodge earned an impressive 5 percent increase in the first quarter of 2021. In the United States, a total of 469,651 vehicles were moved which is over 22,000 more vehicles over this period in 2020. Overall, the growth of the Dodge Durango jumped up 61% and we’ve seen some sales of Dodge vehicles that are quite rare. Among the remaining Dodge products were four new, original 2017 Dodge Viper cars. Dodge has moved just nine in the past two years, but that’s not too shabby for a vehicle that was last in production several years ago. The Stellantis report that covers the Dodge brand’s total sales after the first quarter (three months) of 2021, we noticed the Dodge Dart also had some sales. The Dodge Dart was last produced for the 2016 model year and is a rare sedan sale in 2021.

Drivers that own a modern Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger recognize they enjoy a powerful muscle car that is unlike most vehicles on the streets today. The uncommon factor has also unfortunately made them a mark for criminals to attempt to capture. Like all luxurious vehicles or sports cars, owners know the Dodge brand is subject to theft and Dodge is addressing those concerns with a free update that will not allow carjackers the chance to drive off with the muscle car. Dodge has maintained its promise to accommodate consumers with not only the most agile production vehicles in multiple segments, but also some of the most secure vehicles as well.

All Owners of 2015-2021 Dodge Muscle Cars, We’ve Got News For You 

For all owners of 2015 to present-day Dodge Challenger or Charger models, a launch of a unique code to prevent vehicle theft is available. All that is required is showing up with the vehicle to allow Dodge technicians at a Dodge dealership to obtain the software update. This software update will be used via the Uconnect 4C infotainment system accessing a secondary level of vehicle security encryption. This is revealed right from the highest role of the Dodge brand, Tim Kuniskis, as the efforts to make the Dodge brand more secure was a high priority. 

“Today, Dodge is launching a new owner-customized ‘double verification’ security system. When flashed into the computer of affected 2015 or newer Dodge muscle cars, the protective software will limit the engine output to less than 3 horsepower, foiling fast getaways and joyrides,” remarked Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand CEO – Stellantis. 

Feel More Secure Owning A Dodge Muscle Car

Once updated, the muscle car will restrict the engine from performing and moving over 675 rpm. This will stop any criminal from moving the vehicle and leaving them idle in the vehicle. This move will also help keep the public as a whole safe as many carjackers take these fast muscle cars on joyrides that injure others, including many times the criminal who stole the vehicle. Now they won’t have that chance.

Dodge has come a long way from offering customers a ride that is not only fast looking and impressive, they are also extending the most outstanding security available to keep owners secure, as well as advancing the quality and high-end materials of their Dodge muscle cars. For those who own any of these vehicles, we ask our readers to reach out to us to install the update for free at our service center. 

All of the following can install the update: 2015 Dodge Charger, 2016 Dodge Charger, 2017 Dodge Charger, 2018 Dodge Charger, 2019 Dodge Charger, 2020 Dodge Charger, 2021 Dodge Charger, 2021 Dodge Challenger, 2020 Dodge Challenger, 2019 Dodge Challenger, 2018 Dodge Challenger, 2017 Dodge Challenger, 2016 Dodge Challenger, 2015 Dodge Challenger. Reach out to us to get started on making an online service appointment for the update.

Good news for Dodge muscle car fans that feel like the 2021 Dodge Charger was left out of some of the perks the Challenger received. The 2021 Charger is set to receive a new paint color previously and exclusively available for the 50th Anniversary Edition Dodge Challenger. Since its debut in June 2020, but the best part is now the bold look can be had with every 2021 Charger. That’s right; the Dodge Challenger will grant its body color to the Charger for every trim for its 2021 model year. 

Enjoy the Gold Rush Color 

The four-door 2021 Dodge Charger will offer the Gold Rush color for each trim including the Charger R/T, Scat Pack, Scat Pack Widebody, SRT Hellcat, and Hellcat Redeye are all golden options. The Gold Rush color across includes its Satin Black hand-painted roof, hood, and decklid. While the Challenger received the spotlight last year, Dodge knew the brand had to offer the same treatment to its Charger and extend the favor over to fans. Now readers can encounter a wide variety of colors that includes Frostbite, Hellraisin, Go Mango, Sinamon Stick, TorRed, and F8 Green. Dodge has noted the beloved Gold Rush become a staple amount Dodge Challenger fans and wanted to offer this color in the mix among these exceptional options.

“The customer response to the Dodge Challenger Gold Rush exceeded our expectations. We’re sticking to that successful Dodge formula of proliferating our most popular options across the lineup and giving Charger customers, who want the Gold Rush color, the option to have it on their four-door muscle car,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand Chief Executive Officer – Stellantis.

A Quick Rebound For the Muscle Sedan

The Dodge Charger enjoyed a wonderful sales year, notwithstanding the pandemic. Keep in mind, the total vehicles moved in January and February 2021 exceeded the total from the same time in 2020 and 2019. The rush at the end of the year was impressive as well as the Charger was sold 9,174 times in merely December 2020 alone. That total was higher than any year dating back to 2014 for the popular Dodge muscle car. Dodge has not yet released the quarterly report for the start of 2021, but if there’s any evidence of what to anticipate with the addition of stimulus money being added into many customers bank accounts, plus the incentives to take home a new vehicle, the Dodge brand might be gaining lots of attention paid to its popular muscle sedan. 

Interested in checking out how a Dodge Charger looks and feels? A test-drive is all some customers need to have to understand the intensity and fun of a Dodge muscle car. Rush over to Miami Lakes Automall, where we are ready to show off our vehicles and welcome everyone to see them live in person or over the web as we cater to our customers everywhere!

Dodge Remains Committed To SRT Brand For the Future

2022 Miami Lakes Automall

2022 Miami Lakes Automall

It’s that time of year when we want to know what will come next for the prized Dodge muscle car, the Dodge Challenger. Set to offer its 2022 model year at some point this summer, we’ve caught wind of the initial reports that the future of the most influential V8 engines is likely to decrease in support of electric vehicles. Of course, Dodge won’t purposely alter its brand from what buyers love. In truth, the muscle car will live on, but with all the undertaking Stellantis has placed on changing its brand, we are questioning where Dodge heads next. Particularly with its Street Racing Technology (SRT) brand, what will it turn into? FCA and PSA Groupe combined forces to produce Stellantis, the world’s fourth-largest automotive company, and among the massive changes comes in the way they will produce new vehicles. While Stellantis has put a spotlight on the brand as they remain committed to its SRT brand, it might not all be the news some wanted to hear. (It’s not all bad, though)

What Will Dodge Think of Next?

Among the largest changes will be how Dodge advocates to its fanbase how to set up its brand moving forward. The massive shift to combine electric vehicle technology to its muscle car lineup is underway, but at what cost? What will allow the Dodge engineers to produce the V8 engine-powered muscle cars enthusiasts crave? Buyers expect to have the same heart-racing power offered by the SRT brand, but we now understand there will no longer be a main goal on the SRT mission. This announcement concerning the process was shown to MotorTrend and serves as a reminder of the times regarding the transformation the automotive industry is taking on. This move signals a shift that will be felt for many years, even generation ahead. 

“These products have delighted enthusiasts for nearly two decades, and Stellantis will continue to sell and develop the next generation of Dodge/SRT-branded vehicles, as well as Jeep and Ram vehicles that [utilize] high-performance SRT technology,” Stellantis said in a statement.

Dodge Aims TO Keep SRT Brand Intact

So, in regards to all those famed SRT trims and its unique brand of badges and style, buyers can know this will still be kept. The only sad news is the SRT brand is not keeping up with the same focus as those in power determined they will curb the brand. The boss of the Stellantis brand, Carlos Tavares, has recently said that the performance vehicles like the 2021 Dodge Challenger and 2021 Dodge Charger are here to stay, which is all we want to hear at Miami Lakes Automall. The enjoyment of the SRT brand like what is found in the SRT Hellcat trims is unlike any other brand on the market today. 

“What Hellcat has done is way beyond what our initial expectations were because it’s way beyond what a traditional, very high-end trim does,” Tim Kuniskis, CEO of Dodge

Keep in mind, Dodge sold over 50,000 Hellcat trims in just the last five years alone. Thinking of the cost of any SRT Hellcat, which starts around $60,000 MSRP, we know the reasons lie in the brand’s heart racing power. Check out all the freshest details concerning the upcoming 2022 Charger and 2022 Challenger soon to come later in 2021 to Miami Lakes Automall.Today, the Dodge vehicles have not ever been more complete and powerful. Buyers can expect to enjoy the perks of Dodge engineering and allow us to help with the process of owning or leasing a Dodge vehicle today. 

Dodge Brand Is Working To Add More Horsepower And EV Capabilities

The Dodge brand is looking ahead to the future, but let us look back to the year the Dodge brand jumped ahead to reinvent itself. The Dodge Charger was brought back in 2006. Re-Debuting at the 2006 North American International Auto Show after its original production started in September 1969 through 1974. Since then, it’s all been a big success including and the brand introduced the 2008 Dodge Challenger. By the time the 2015 model year came around, Dodge introduced the 6.2-Liter HEMI, which is still used today in higher trims across the Dodge brand.

Brief Recap of Recent Dodge Muscle History 

The Dodge brand has only upped the ante as the powertrains would only become more fierce. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was the first Dodge muscle car to add over 800 horsepower in a Dodge production vehicle. They kept up this immense power by maintaining the output of over 800 horsepower with the 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock

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

What Will Become of the Brand?

So, now the muscle car world is looking for a new Dodge emblem. Will the brand push the boundaries even further? The iconic nameplates might see more SRT Hellcat fun. After all, before Stellantis took over for Dodge, the SRT vehicles grew outside of Dodge into the Jeep brand and the Ram brand with the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV and Ram 1500 pickup respectively. A recent episode of the Brembo Red podcast had Ralph Gilles, former CEO of SRT brand. He currently is the Chief Design Officer for Stellantis and hinted the future of the brand rests within the electric future we’ve hinted at before. 

“It might be a combination of electrification and gas. The technology is there,” said Ralph Gilles. 

How Soon Till The Dodge EV Party Begins?

We’ve heard word that Dodge has placed an order for transmissions from ZF Friedrichshafen in 2019, which is different from what is used in the Dodge brand today. The new fourth-gen transmissions purchased in 2019 have the option to include a built-in electric motor. The eight-speed gearbox is able to support the internal combustion engine with up to 160 kW and 450 Nm. These are the kind of leaks that lead to rumors and suggestions about where the brand is headed, for now, let us just appreciate some of the most fierce and firmly established muscle cars in production today, like the 2021 Dodge Challenger and Charger lineup. To get started on driving one of these vehicles, reach out to us at Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge Will Stick Around To Grow Its EV Future According To Dodge, Stellantis CEO

Dodge isn’t going anywhere. Every person involved in the automotive industry knows the future is headed towards electric vehicles. We’ve seen the growth of EVs and its onset for years. We’re pointed out all the upcoming advancements to look forward to, and our readers have seen the importance of why brands are making the shift now away from fossil fuels, which includes gasoline. Today, the landscape of vehicles has changed to include these remarkably powerful and fuel-efficient vehicles. So, what’s the problem with adding large V8 engines in single-passenger coupes like the Dodge Challenger? According to Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares, nothing. 

Future of Dodge Vehicles With Stellantis 

There will be plenty of new Dodge vehicles that might not land on the “Top 10 Most Fuel-efficient Vehicles List of 2021”, but they were never meant to. Except, that, too might change one day if we see an all-EV Dodge muscle car like we were promised. The goal of Dodge is to reinvent itself with the mission statement it’s always carried, to be the best at creating muscle cars, and offer exhilarating high-octane driver experiences. Dodge will include even more Dodge muscle car trims for the brand with a rumor of as many as three new Dodge trims coming soon.  

Word Straight From the Top

The truth according to Stellantis CEO is in the details that include the Dodge brand’s recent 700 to 800 horsepower vehicles. Those vehicles don’t meet the emissions standards and the electric power technology isn’t able to produce the same results. That hasn’t stopped the CEO from trying to push the evolution of Dodge to start sooner rather than later. We expect the Dodge brand to keep producing remarkably fast, exciting vehicles and the Dodge Durango, Charger, and Challenger will certainly have a future if the head of the company has anything to do with it. (He does).

“It’s something we have to work on. There are solutions for that. We have the technology to deliver the torque, dynamics, and acceleration feeling, while also dramatically reducing the emissions,” said Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares. 

For more information on any of the newest Dodge products, count on us at Miami Lakes Automall to share the news. We’re excited for the future of the Dodge brand including a focus on EVs, but while that means we have no EV Dodge vehicles today, we do have plenty of wonderful choices that offer the power of Dodge as well as vehicles that offer much in the way of EV capabilities. Come in for a test-drive to experience Dodge muscle today!

Ask any mechanic or true car enthusiast and they will reveal the trick to knowing how much worth a vehicle has can be found under the hood. As no doubt, owners can measure value by the strength of its engine and how said powertrain sings. The truth is for most customers, they might not be able to convince this to everyone in the family, but let us attempt. Seldom vehicle purchases require some forward-thinking and rationalizing. What exactly is too much power and intensity? Well, for some, like comedian Kevin Hart, there isn’t adequate horsepower in a standard Charger. The famed aftermarket super team at Speedkore has combined the most impressive Mopar/Dodge engine into a renewed 1970 Dodge Charger. This Hellphant V8 engine is the essence of what muscle cars are all about. Few vehicles can manage this remarkable engine’s strengths. 

SpeedKore Pumps Up the Volume For Kevin Hart?

The Hellephant engine was originally showcased back at the 2018 SEMA exhibit and showed the world what a truly high-octane experience can offer drivers. The engine formally arrived in 2019 and offered the lucky owners of it a special Hellcat 6.2-Liter Supercharger V8 engine that carries 1,000 horsepower and 950 lb-ft of torque. This is no ordinary powertrain! Kevin Hart might have a hard time driving this vehicle considering its tremendous strength. The transmission attached to this classic 1970 Charger is right from the legendary 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon; a Demon-spec ZF 8HP90 8-speed automatic transmission and thus completes the perks afforded to the funny man’s impressive muscle car. 

Mastering the Charger Rebuild

Oddly enough, SpeedKore has restored this same Dodge Charger muscle car; the 1970 model. Their previous revisit of this Charger produced their creation known as the “Evolution”. Some perks for that upgrade included a carbon-fiber body with parts from the 1970 Charger original and added as much as they could from the original 1970 Charger. The extension of Brembo brakes with 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers ensure Kevin Hart will be protected when utilizing the brakes to stop this wonderful throwback of a muscle car. 

We know plenty of our readers are hoping to drive a vehicle that makes them feel the surge of Dodge engineering. For those interested (and ones that could convince who they needed to) those buyers should look no further than Miami Lakes Automall. We know about all the high-octane powers afford by Dodge muscle cars. The comforts and perks that come with the most advanced Charger and Challenger have a special place for shoppers.

Ceramic Coatings: The Pros, The Cons & Is It Really Worth It?

By ninar | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, January 12th, 2021 at 10:37 AM

The ceramic coating gives your car an ageless look, provides UV ray protection & easy cleaning, but it can’t remove watermarks or provide rock chip safety.

The best way to make your car look new at all times is by taking good care of your vehicle & adopting protective measures against scratches, rock chips, or swirls. Applying ceramic finish to your car can help you enormously. 

However, you may get confused over many things like which paints to apply? Is the hype about ceramic coating valid? Is it better than other popular layers like waxing & polishing? Is the hefty price worth it? There is plenty of contradictory information about ceramic coating & thus, you may find it tedious to judge its credibility.

But don’t you worry. By going through this article, you will have a clear idea about ceramic coating & whether you should apply it to your car. 

What is a Ceramic Coating?

Ceramic coating is a polymeric chemical solution with intrinsic characteristics to withstand external threats to your car’s exterior paint. People also call it a nano-ceramic coating.

The ceramic coating chemicals form a layer on top of the initial coating & protects it from scratch marks, swirls, etc. The ceramic coating adds a hydrophobic layer on the surface of the car. By doing so, you can extend the durability of your car’s paint throughout the summer & rainy seasons.

How To Apply Ceramic Coating

Applying a ceramic coating to your vehicle is a lengthy process & you need to have patience throughout the process. There are a couple of steps involved before applying the ceramic coating to your car.

Generally, a professional-grade ceramic coating is the best to use. However, you will need a certified professional to apply it.

First, your car needs to go through the necessary prep work, including a thorough washing, stripping off old wax, and polish treatment. After that, a professional expert will apply ceramic coating to your car depending upon the car type, the service you purchased, & the quality of the product. Finally, your vehicle will require curing and a final wash.

You can also use DIY ceramic coating, where you will need to do all these works by yourself. We do not recommend you try this by yourself if you lack experience.

How Much Do You Have to Spend?

Although many automobile repair shops provide ceramic coating facilities, some shops like Definition Car Detailing (NSW), Car Detailing Definitive (SYD), Superior Shine, Ceramic Pro Sydney stand out from the rest when it comes to ceramic coating in Sydney.

Do check them out for their excellent service quality & reasonable pricing.

In terms of payment, you need to pay a steep price for ceramic coat finishes. For Professional Ceramic Coating, you need to assess the following costs-

  • Installation- 2500 AU$/ 1940.54 USD$
  • Protective Spray per year – 75 AU$/ 37 USD$
  • Car wash every two weeks can cost about 1950 AU$/ 1515 USD$

You need to pay 4500 – 5000 AU$ or about 3500 – 3900 USD$ for ceramic coating & one year of service.

For DIY Ceramic Coating, you need to assess the following costs-

  • 350 AU$/ 270 USD$ for prep work
  • 170 AU$/ 130 USD$ for kits 
  • 120 AU$/ 95 USD$ for a car washing kit. 

You need to pay around 650 – 1000 AU$ or 505 – 775 USD$ for DIY Ceramic Coating.

Keep in mind that you need to do all the tedious labor work. Moreover, you have to be an expert at applying the ceramic coating. These are all lengthy processes & be ready to commit a full week’s worth of working hours to you finish applying the coating. 

If you do not have the time or expertise, rely on professional services.

Pros of Ceramic Coating

1. Paint Protection

Everyday driving exposes your car to many airborne contaminants & endangers the paint. The hydrophobic layer created from ceramic coating helps sweep away all foreign particles that may pose harm.

The ceramic coating further ensures the original coating is safe from dirt, debris or accidental scratches, etc.

2. UV Ray Safety

Exposure to the scorching sun can affect your car’s paint adversely. Ceramic coating blocks these UV rays & ensures the safeguard of the original colour. The ceramic coating further prevents fading of the paint or taking a dull look because of UV rays.

3. Chemical Stain Prevention

You may get chemical stains on your car from the acidic contaminants of nature. With the increasing air pollution rate, ceramic coating plays a significant role in preventing such stains. They create a barrier so that chemical stains can’t form bonds with the paint & destroy the color.

4. Easy Cleaning

A ceramic coating finish reduces your stresses in cleaning the car tremendously. As it has a hydrophobic layer, wet dirt & bead can’t stand on the coating & slides off.

5. Glossy Appearance

Unlike other available coatings & finishes available out there in the market, the ceramic coating can give your car a glossy look & ageless appearance

6. Saves Money

Most people compare ceramic coating with regular waxing. Let’s compare that way, then. Waxing lasts up to 3 months. That means every year, your car will need waxing at least four times. Each time you will need to pay 250 AU$ or 195 USD$. For five years, your total cost will be around 5000 AU$ or 3900 USD$.

A professional ceramic coating will last up to five years with no issues, and it will cost you around 1300 AU$ to 2500 AU$ or 1010 to 1950 USD$. You do the math!

Cons of Ceramic Coating

1. Not 100% Swirl/Scratch Protective

If they told you a ceramic coating is 100% swirl & scratch proof, then it’s a big lie. Ceramic coating reduces the adverse effects of these threats but can’t fully protect your car. However, it blends minority scratch marks but can’t do anything against rock chips or unwanted parking scratches.

2. Can’t Remove Water Spots

Although the hydrophobic property of the ceramic coating slides off the water-based contaminants, the natural minerals & other particles present in these contaminants stay on the surface.

To remove these spots, you need to give your car a good hand wash. 

3. Car Wash Is Still Mandatory

Ceramic coating is not a miraculous product that is capable of auto-cleaning. You still need to wash regularly. But comparatively, you won’t need to toil much while washing.

Final Thoughts

Using a ceramic coating is definitely worth it when you own a car in Sydney. Considering the various benefits & the ageless look your car gets, it’s a reliable go-to option. But again, it’s not flawless & not the only option to consider as no product can guarantee complete protection.

 

Dodge Muscle Cars Now Carry 20-Inch Wheels For First Time Ever

Dodge is finally going to give customers what they have wanted for years. For the first time, Dodge will break out 20-inch wheels for both the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger. The muscle cars that have helped re-launch the success of the Dodge brand in the decade before last have never looked so bold and imposing. The 2021 Dodge Challenger and Charger will gain these 20-inch wheels on all All-Wheel-Drive models. Allow us to share all the details that are included with this first-ever 20-inch Dodge muscle car lineup.

Details Worth Knowing For the 2021 Dodge Muscle Car Lineup

The Dodge muscle cars that carry AWD come with the legendary 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 gasoline engine that provides 300 to 305 horsepower, depending on which Dodge car. The standard 19-inch wheels look noticeably smaller and help create an aesthetic that could only come with aftermarket wheels. These 20-inch wheels are also placed deeper inside the vehicle, at 8 inches in, versus the 7.5-inch depth held with 19-inch wheels. The reason the wheels are placed deeper has to do with providing a way to allow for use of greater width of each tire. This allows drivers to have each tire (this is All-Wheel-Drive after all) provide optimal grip and traction. The exterior appearance benefits from this move as well, as the skinnier tires will no longer look as awkward. Not to mention, the perk of knowing the replacement tire is an easier find.   

Engage With Newest Dodge Cars Today

For those who are seeking a chance to get their hands on the fresh new 2021 Dodge Charger, they may have to wait till summer or beyond. For now, we’re ready to help our customers into our current line-up of fresh Dodge muscle cars. The choice of AWD includes the choice of Satin Carbon or a Black Noise finish. Keep in mind, buyers who opt for the SXT AWD version of either the Charger or Challenger, those vehicles can only come with the Satin Carbon wheels rif they purchase the Plus Package. This package costs $2,695 for the 2021 Charger and $3,095 for the 2021 Challenger. Black Noise wheels also require the choice of the Blacktop Package.

The Dodge brand is known for providing exclusive body colors to bring further attention to vehicles that already have numerous ways to grab the spotlight on the road. As if driving a strong, full-scale muscle car wasn’t enough for some drivers, the addition of the Gold Rush body-color returning yet again for the 2021 model year is another way to stand out. Originally known as “Fortuno’s Gold” when the 13th annual SoCal LX Springfest came around in 2018. 

The truth is the parent company of Dodge, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), looked at the sales and figured the success the Gold Rush tint had was good enough. The body colors that are available for the 2021 model year include Frostbite, TorRed, Go ManGo, Hellraisin, and Sinamon Stick. The Widebody package that includes 20 inch wheels are available for the Gold Rush color as well. Which other trims come with this golden body color?

Which Trims Come With the Gold Rush Body Color?

The 2021 Dodge Challenger offers the Gold Rush on the Challenger T/A, T/A 392, T/A 392 Widebody trims. The optional body color paint comes with some requirements including having a Satin Black hood, decklid, and roof. The black and gold theme is kept throughout the vehicle. Dodge loyalists could not get their hands on this Gold Rush for the 2020 model, but for the 2021 model year, this iconic body color has returned. We already know three new trims will eventually come to the Dodge muscle car lineup. The standard SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye trims are also available for customers to purchase. 

“Dodge offers a wide variety of performance models and powertrains, but we also have the same mindset when it comes to our extensive exterior color options. By bringing back Gold Rush to a few of our 2021 Challenger models, we’re giving our enthusiasts yet another option to make their muscle car even more unique,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. 

When To Expect the Gold Rush To Arrive?

The Dodge brand has said the dealer orders are open for the 2021 Dodge Challenger with Gold Rush paint with expectations to begin delivery in early 2021. For those looking for a muscle car with some style, we can help. At Miami Lakes Automall, we are more than able to assist our customers for any buying, leasing, selling or needs they may have.

Dodge Announces Hellcrate Redeye Engine

Ever wanted to add a better engine to make each drive more exciting? Dodge and Mopar, the parts and service distributor for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has just announced some great news. The most impressive production engine offered by Dodge is now available for purchase through a new Hellcrate package. The famed Dodge Hellcat Redeye V8 powertrain is now a crate offering through Mopar. This is no regular engine, as the output that drivers will experience is the 807-horsepower offering that will put a smile on any driver’s face.

Breaking Down the Best of Dodge Engineering

The Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock debuted earlier in 2020 and pushed the envelope of the Challenger muscle car even further than the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye did. This is the same engine used in the all-new SRT Super Stock, despite the Hellcat name. The SRT Super Stock uses the Hellcat Redeye engine and received enhancements that belonged to both the SRT Demon and SRT Hellcat Redeye. When speaking about this new offering, the head of FCA’s global head of passenger cars 

2021 marks the year that Dodge is distilled to a pure performance brand with 700-plus horsepower models available across the entire Dodge lineup. The new 807-horsepower Hellcrate Redeye crate engine gives any pre-1976 vehicle owner another opportunity to become a member of the Dodge brotherhood of muscle by tapping into the Dodge//SRT power that wasn’t available then, but is now,” said Tim Kuniskis, FCA’s global head of passenger cars for Dodge in North America.

More On the Hellcrate

The cost of the high-powered engine crate is not for the faint of heart for both drivers that aren’t used to the HEMI V8 power or the high-cost of owning such a well-made engine. The expected listing cost will be $21,807 MSRP, but it is less expensive than the 1,000 horsepower Hellephane 426 supercharged V8 powertrain also available through Mopar (that engine costs just under $30,000 MSRP). Keep in mind, the Hellcrate Redeye is the most expensive and strong production-car engine that Mopar offers, and customers will be more than willing to swap out their engine for this high-performance engine. 

Owners can also opt for the 707 horsepower that costs $20,215 MSRP. The larger supercharger and stronger bottom end with its forged alloy steel crankshaft, high-strength pistons, and powder-forged connecting rods are some of the highlights.

Dodge Is Set To Offer Three New Muscle Car Trims Before Long

More new Dodge muscle is coming out of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (Soon to be known as Stellantis) before long. The future of the Dodge Challenger and Charger muscle car models will have three new additions. FCA has struck a three-year deal with a Canadian auto workers union, known as Unifor, to produce these three new variants of the Dodge Charger and Challenger. FCA has put together a new $50 million investment into the Brampton Assembly factory. There will be an influence of new trims to generate some energy into the Dodge brand. 

Dodge Prepares For New Muscle Trim Options

Dodge generated quite a stir when it came out with the Street Racing Technology (SRT) Hellcat trim in 2015. The Challenger was the first Dodge to gain the SRT Hellcat and it was added to the Charger soon after, followed by the Dodge Durango this year. Dodge sought to push the envelope even further when it brought out the SRT Demon and SRT Hellcat Redeye. A new SRT Super Stock came out this year and for the foreseeable future, we think Dodge will eventually offer a new Barracuda trim for one, if not both muscle cars. Dodge also put together two new Widebody trim options for customers to choose from. The trim might be known as the Cuda, as FCA has listed for a trademark for Cuda. This nameplate would be a return for the Dodge brand, as the Barracuda was produced decades ago and ended in 1974.

Dodge Will Create New Trims Shortly

The arrangement FCA put together will forge together a multi-energy vehicle architecture that is set to offer new plug-in hybrid and new electric vehicles and building the batteries used with those EVs. The Windsor Assembly Plant will create around 2,000 jobs for FCA’s Canadian division. The retooling for the plant will help the brand build and produce these new EVs and the entire investment is supposed to be approximately $1.35 billion. 

“FCA has maintained a strong footprint in Canada for nearly a century. Over the last decade, we have invested over $4 billion in our Canadian manufacturing facilities, more than any other OEM in the country and it is our intention to maintain this leadership,” said Mark Stewart, Chief Operating Officer of FCA North America.

2021 Dodge Challenger Offers Two New Widebody Trims

Dodge is letting the public know some brand new pricing for the 2021 Dodge Challenger, including the new Challenger Drag Pak. This is the prize of all muscle cars; thanks to its high-octane, top-tier engineering abilities that have made Dodge so awarded and celebrated for decades. The speed is also something most people know Dodge brings to the table with every muscle car they offer. Dodge recently revealed the Drag Pak will cost over $140,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee). While that number is high, we can help explain the perks that have made the cost relatively reasonable considering what the vehicle offers. The 2021 Dodge Challenger will also carry two new trims including two new Widebody options for the T/A 392 R/T Scat Pack Shaker.

Each new trim is equipped with a more vibrant styling and have advanced performance found under the hood. Drivers will enjoy the powerful naturally aspirated 6.4-Liter 392 HEMI engine. With the Widebody treatment, the 3.5-inch growth to increase the width of the vehicle helps generate excellent turning ability and a more reliable grip when driving. The length improved the Dodge add the wider 20-by-11 inch wheels that carry 305/35ZR20 Pirelli tires. Drivers can expect to go quicker and produce more satisfying times at the drag strip with either of these new entries to the Challenger family.

R/T Scat Pack Widebody Is Here

So, exactly how much improvement will an owner notice with the Widebody option? The R/T Scat Pack is approximately two seconds faster, which is about 12 car lengths faster compared to the non-Widebody form. The quarter-mile time is quick fast at its 12.1-second mark at a top speed of 112 mph, running a faster time than the non-Widebody version by a little less than half a second. The improvements for the Widebody are found with its SRT-tuned chassis and high-performance adaptive damping suspension. Additional perks come in the form of its dual-extractor hood, SRT Performance Pages, and the ability to engage the front brakes but the rear wheels are able to showcase a tire-smoking burnout because of the Line Lock feature that is added.

Owners will have the flare that is nostalgic of the 1970 Challenger R/T complete with the Shaker hood and SHAKER underhood decal. The R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody brings an engine-mounted hood scoop that looks the part of pure muscle as the added Mopar cold-air intake improves airflow to the engine. The conical air filter with an optimized airbox will also provide improved performance. Customers can drive home the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody for $47,690 MSRP (Plus destination fee). Order books are currently open, with the first deliveries registered to begin at the start of 2021.

Ride the T/A 392

The 2021 Dodge Challenger T/A 392 is the other new trim choice that carries the Widebody offering. Dodge took cues from the first 1970 Challenger T/A, adding a new design within its Satin Black hood, wrap roof, and deck lid. The look is finished with its T/A body-side stripes, a sleek black spoiler with a T/A decal, a “392” fender decal, and Air Catcher headlamps with LED-illuminated T/A logos. The interior provides a 1970’s styled gauge cluster with highlighted white concave faces and black, glossy detailing. Black upholstered performance seating with cloth inserts concluded the sharp look. The T/A 392 trim can be had for
$49,090 MSRP (Plus destination fee). This trim is not available for purchase yet, but soon they will be, and deliveries will start during the spring of 2021. Both of these trims carry the impressive 392 HEMI V8 powertrain that offers 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque with rear-wheel-drive paired to a standard six-speed manual or optional eight-speed automatic transmission. Need to know further details about why owning a new Dodge Challenger is the right call? We can help our customers find out all they need to know at Miami Lakes Automall.

While 2020 has been a down year for all automotive companies due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the good news is the tide is turning. The third-quarter results for 2020 have helped Dodge notice just how strong sales were for the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger among customers. The latest results have the Dodge brand happy as the numbers reflect the Dodge muscle car lineup has done better than rival brands flagship cars, including the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Corvette. This is big news and Dodge is only aiming at improving its muscle car variety as well as coming out with a few surprises for customers to close out 2020. 

Dodge Looks To Only Get Better

Dodge has publicly stated their numbers would be even better if the Coronavirus didn’t hit, naturally. But, when speaking out about the success Dodge has seen, there is one driving force behind the brand. Their goal is to move Dodge ahead of the rest of the manufacturers trying to create a buzz with new tricks to attract buyers (looks at the mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette).  The Charger sold 23,547 vehicles with 16,332 Challenger vehicles sold. The Ford Mustang only sold 13,851 vehicles, down 18 percent from last year, unlike the Dodge Charger (only down 10%). Chevrolet only sold 6,355 Corvette vehicles in the third-quarter. 

“We only publish total (quarterly) numbers. But if you look inside the numbers at true retail sales to real customers and not to rental car agencies, Charger and Challenger had the best September they’ve ever had in the history of the cars,” added Tim Kuniskis, head of FCA passenger cars

Awards and What Customers Can Expect From Dodge

Dodge recently earned awards from J. D. Power from its APEAL Study across all 2020 model year vehicles. The results look to be the same or better for the 2021 model year as the Dodge muscle car lineup will extend its SRT Hellcat nameplate to the Dodge Durango for the first time ever. The Dodge brand has seen the Hellcat trim hit new retail sales marks never before reached. The 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is the fastest production car on the market today and the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye is the quickest sedan any customers can buy. These are the perks that Dodge has built and made for customers to appreciate. The hard work has not gone unnoticed as from the top executives down to the dealerships, Dodge knows the choices they have offered for customers still generate excitement. 

“(The third-quarter of 2020) was also the best Hellcat month in like three years, and the best Scat Pack month in the history of the nameplate. The cars are working, and it’s working because customers are gravitating to the spirit of the brand and the attitude of the brand,” said Kuniskis.

For those that want to drive the newest Dodge vehicle, come to us at Miami Lakes Automall to get started. We look forward to helping our customers enjoy the perks that come with the greatest muscle cars in the industry; Dodge muscle!

Hennessey Performance Built A 1,000 Horsepower Dodge Durango

The 2021 Dodge Durango will arrive as a rejuvenated vehicle with a new trim that will only be offered for one year; the all-new SRT Hellcat trim. This is the first time the three-row SUV will offer a Hellcat trim for customers, which might come as a surprise. Before the addition of the trim, the Durango offered the fastest SUV speeds in the segment. Now with the introduction of the SRT Hellcat trim, Dodge adds the incredible power of the 6.2-Liter turbocharged engine and all the comfort and luxury that comes standard with the top Durango trim. However, for one company the strength of 710 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque was not nearly enough despite its offering of best-in-class performance. What company could possibly exceed the capabilities Dodge just added to the Durango? 

Leave It To Hennessey Performance To Make A Hellcat Faster

For many years now, the Hennessey Performance team, a Texas-based tuning company, has created a platform to turn any vehicle into a 1,000 horsepower machine. Hennessey Performance is responsible for birthing the 1,000 horsepower Jeep Gladiator Maximus and the immensely strong 1,200 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. The Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat is now the latest vehicle to gain the Hennessey Performance treatment. Keep in mind, this is the first time any three-row SUV has been created to exceed the three-digit horsepower mark. While Hennessey Performance has built some remarkable vehicles to go way over the production horsepower allotment, they have never made a Durango faster or stronger. 

Pushing the Limits of Dodge Engineering

Well-known for its achievements across the Dodge vehicle lineup, including the Dodge Viper, Charger, and Challenger, this is the first time they work on a new Durango and help it surpass the exclusive +1,000 horsepower mark at 1,012 horsepower. They had experience working on an SUV with the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, but this is a bit different. The newly added HPE1000 supercharger upgrade kit for the Durango SRT has increased the raw strength that allows for 969 ft-lb of torque and it will have the same measurements as the aforementioned Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The speed of the Durango will definitely be increased. The adjusted Trackhawk went from 0-60 mph at warp speed in only 2.6 seconds! We anticipate comparable figures for the Durango SRT Hellcat. (Now that’s wicked speed)

Still Impressed By the Durango SRT Hellcat

While the Hennessey Performance team has created quite a buzz with its Durango, don’t forget the stock version of the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat continues to offer exceptionally quick 0-60 mph time of merely 3.5 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 11.5 seconds. With times like that in a three-row SUV, that’s not only special for a large SUV, but for any production vehicle available today. We’ve already talked about how the Durango is ahead of the competition, but for any readers who are curious about driving a new SUV and want to check out a new Dodge Durango, let us help. We can help make that dream a reality at Miami Lakes Automall today!

A Look Back At the Recent History of the Dodge Challenger

2018 Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

2018 Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

The Dodge brand has grown in popularity and offered seemingly better and better muscle car options for customers. The truth is Dodge really has upped the ante for vehicles in terms of production and horsepower, among other qualities its customers embrace. Looking back at just the last half-decade we can see just how improved the Dodge muscle lineup has grown. When the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was introduced, it was a landmark effort. The first SRT Hellcat would offer 707 horsepower and hit a remarkable 11.2-second quarter-mile effort. Dodge would surpass this total with more recent efforts in the following years. Let’s take a look at where the Dodge brand has grown and exceeded previous efforts with unmatched gusto. 

Looking Back At the 2015 Dodge Challenger

The first SRT Hellcat would offer 707 horsepower and hit a remarkable 11.2-second quarter-mile effort. Dodge would surpass this total with more recent efforts in the following years. Let’s take a look at where the Dodge brand has grown and exceeded previous efforts with unmatched gusto. 

Former President and CEO of Dodge and SRT Brands, Tim Kuniskis, remarked when the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat debuted that Dodge was “reaching deep into our history and bringing back the notion from the muscle car ear of the street and strip dual-purpose cars”. This was just the first effort to embark on a path that includes new muscle cars for new customers to fall for the love of racing and the muscle Dodge provides. The goal for Dodge was to make a muscle car serve two purposes and this would further be realized when the following year Dodge offered the 2016 Challenger. 

Dodge Improved Challenger In New Ways For 2016 and 2017

Dodge had redesigned the Challenger the year prior, but when the 2016 model year came out it offered the most muscle ever offered in a production vehicle. The supercharged 6.2-Liter HEMI SRT V8 engine offered 650 ft-lb of torque and hit a top speed of 199 mph. While this would see to be impressive, as the rival brand Chevrolet and its Camaro only hit 455 horsepower and the Challenger was over 700 horsepower, the 2017 model year was even better. The 2017 Dodge Challenger GT was the first all-wheel-drive muscle car and offered launch control to help ensure an easier start on drag strips. The following model year offered something we’re still talking about to this day.

The Most Impressive Dodge Challenger Models Yet

The 2018 model year for the Dodge brand offered the rare and exclusive 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. This was the fastest production muscle car and it wasn’t topped by any vehicle since, with the exception of the new 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. The 2018 Dodge Challenger offered the SRT Hellcat and the SRT Hellcat Widebody, but the star vehicle was the SRT Demon. With high-octane fuel, the output for the engine was 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque. The Dodge brand wound up creating cousins of the SRT Demon in the following years with muscle cars are just as exclusive as the SRT Demon. Look no further than the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.

More Demon Parts For Customers To Enjoy

Dodge wound up earning lots of attention when parts of the SRT Demon found its way into both the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and this year’s 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. While the SRT Hellcat Redeye offered “only” 797 horsepower, the SRT Super Stock hit over 800 horsepower and became only the second Dodge vehicle to offer customers such unique strength and power. In fact, the SRT Super Stock is perhaps the most impressive Challenger ever made. So, what does Dodge have in store for buyers in the coming years? We can expect only remarkable results and some of the world’s finest engineering for the company responsible for putting muscle cars back on the map in the past decade. Want to know what its like behind the wheel of a vehicle like the Dodge Challenger

The new 2021 Dodge Durango has proven to be far superior than its closest competitor, the Ford Explorer ST. Customers sometimes need a reminder about how much better one brand can be over another. While Ford has enjoyed great success across its landscape of vehicles, we can see how much greater the Durango SRT was made. As an overview, when compared the 2021 Dodge Durango is not only faster, offers more horsepower and torque, but can also brake earlier than the Ford. The infotainment system setups are comparable and yet the Durango can also cost less. In the battle of the three-row SUVs, we can identify a clear winner. 

Speed Is Key

The speed of 0 to 60 MPG is just 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 180 mph, whereas the Ford Explorer ST takes 5.6 seconds to hit 60 mph. If an owner opts for the V6 engine of the Durango, the Dodge product is 3 seconds faster in a quarter-mile than the Explorer ST. As we mentioned earlier, the 60-to-0 mph brake time is 110 feet for the Dodge SUV versus the 114 Ford Explorer ST. The Dodge Durango carries the available Brembo monoblock calipers that help brake the vehicle quickly and efficiently. 

Pricing Comparisons Between the SUV

The Ford Explorer ST when topped out can cost as much as $65,000, while the 2021 Dodge Durango begins at $31,765 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The high-end 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat costs $82,490 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The superior choice between both vehicles, the SRT Hellcat has a nice supercharged 6.2-Liter HEMI® Hellcat V8 engine with its unrivaled 710 horsepower and 645 lb-ft. of torque. This will be for a lone year of production, so buyers will only have this once chance to secure their own. By comparison, the best engine offered with the Ford Explorer ST is the 3.0-Liter EcoBoost V6 engine that only provides just over half what the Durango SRT Hellcat provides. The ST engine hits 400 horsepower with 415 lb-ft of torque; not quite as impressive. 

The Interior Differences

The 2021 Dodge Durango has a new look and interior. The luxurious leather and high-grade materials found in the Durango look sharp and are crafted better than the Ford SUV.  The style of the Durango is taken from the new Charger Widebody.  As far as the infotainment offered, the available 10.1-inch touchscreen is a wonderful centerpiece for owners and passengers alike to enjoy. Both vehicles carry this large 10.1-inch touchscreen, however for the Durango it is available on the GT, GT Plus, R/T, and Citadel trims. The Ford Explorer only offers the touchscreen for the two highest trims. 

As far as interior cabin spacing goes, the 2021 Dodge Durango has a cabin that provides space for as many as 30 suitcases of space according to those who tested the spacing at MotorTrend. The Explorer only held as many as 25 suitcases inside. Now that we’ve painted a clear picture of these two vehicles, we know which vehicle our customers can hope to drive when they debut later in 2020. The 2021 Durango is set to be ready for shoppers starting next month in October. Can’t wait to drive one?

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

Examining the AutoPacifica Award

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

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

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

More on the Upcoming 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker

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

2021 Challenger Drag Pak To Offer Drivers 1,200 Horsepower

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

The Exclusive Dodge Challenger Drag Pak

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

What Can Drivers Expect With the 2021 Drag Pak?

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

Inside the Challenger Drag Pak

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

More Dodge Challenger Options?

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

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

Dodge Has Improved Its Fastest Charger Ever

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

Breaking Down the Numbers

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

What Makes the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye So Impressive?

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

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

Breakdown of the SRT Charger Hellcat Redeye

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

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

Durango SXT, GT, and R/T Trim Breakdown

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

Breaking Down the Changes To the Durango

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

Upgrades To Citadel and Higher Trims

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

Dodge Brand Is Rebounding Its Muscle Car Sales Quickly

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

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

What Helped Drive Dodge Sales

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

Powerful V8 Engine Anyone?

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

Regaining Tremendous Sales Numbers 

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

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

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

Keep This In Mind, There’s A Limited Time

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

Rush To Get the Durango SRT Hellcat Fast

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

The Most Impressive Dodge Challenger Debuts Soon

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

The Prize of Dodge Muscle 

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

Welcome the SRT Super Stock

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

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

Unlocking the Secret of What Customers Want

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

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

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

More on the 2021 Dodge Durango Pursuit

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

All-Wheel-Drive Option For 2021 Dodge Charger Pursuit

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

New Dodge Vehicles; Built For the Bold

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

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

Dodge Excels Over Rival Brands

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

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

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

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

More Recognition For Dodge Vehicles

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

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

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

Introducing the Super Stock

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

No Other Brand Can Compete With This Muscle

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

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

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

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

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

 New 2021 Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye Carries Demon Parts

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

What Does the SRT Hellcat Redeye Offer Over the Hellcat?

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

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

Dodge Ties For First Place

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Rarity of the SRT Hellcat

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

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

The Debut of the Hellcat 

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

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

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

Breaking Down the 2020 SRT Hellcat

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

In-Depth Look Into the R/T Scat Pack

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

Why Opt For A Challenger?

The best part of driving any Dodge Challenger is feeling the extremely fast jump the vehicle provides from 0-60 and how smooth the vehicle rides. Dodge has earned many drivers over the competition in recent years, surpassing the Chevrolet Camaro in 2019 thanks to its many perks, trim options, and excitement offered for each owner. We love the sound of a new Dodge Challenger driving by and we’re sure the sound of owning one will sound great to many of our readers.

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

Owners Will Have A Lot of Choices

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

How Much Does the Commemorative Challenger Cost?

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

Tons of Colors To Choose From

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

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

2021 Dodge Challenger To Gain Viper ACR Styling?

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

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

What Would Be Found In the Challenger ACR?

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

Dodge Is Pumping Out Its Fastest Collection Yet

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

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

“The Thing” Themed Charger Represents Iconic Dodge Recognizability

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

What Is This “Thing”?

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

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

Upcoming Dodge Vehicles Update

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

Looking Into the Dodge Hellcat Widebody and Scat Pack Trims

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

Dodge Widebody Rules

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

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

Comparing the Scat Pack to Hellcat

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

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

Hellcat Dodge Durango Looks To Be In the Works

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

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

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

Original of the Durango SRT Hellcat

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

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

The Joys of the Daytona Edition Charger

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

Additional Enhanced Features 

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

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

Get Into the Beautiful Daytona Special Edition

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

The Iconic Run of the Dodge Viper

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

The Beginning of the Dodge Viper

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

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

Dodge Viper GTS Come Next

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

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

Third and Fourth Generation Dodge Viper Models 

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

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

Fifth and Final Dodge Viper

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

What Comes Next For the Viper?

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

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

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

Updates To Dodge SRT Hellcat Options

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

Dodge Updates Ongoing

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

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

Results of the First Quarter of 2020 For Dodge

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

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

Dodge Muscle Cars Still Shine 

We can show off all the reasons why Dodge muscle cars are still going strong this many years into their run. With the next update still expected to arrive in the next few years, we can bet Dodge will be just fine and its popularity will continue to rise.

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

Relevance of the Dodge Charger

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

Breaking Down the Lego Technic 1970 Charger

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

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

Fast and the Furious Charger Still Popular

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

What the Future Dodge Muscle Car Designs Might Look Like

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

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

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

This Design Looks Impressive, But Is It Realistic?

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

Dodge Is Ready To Produce Faster Vehicles

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

Is Dodge Adding A Hellcat RedeyeTrim To Charger?

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

Dodge Keeping the Redeye Charger Secret

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

Spy Test Photos Link Redeye With Charger

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

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

By bradr | Posted in Dodge Dealer, Dodge Dealer in Miami, Dodge Dealers, Dodge Dealers in Miami, Dodge Dealership on Friday, March 20th, 2020 at 4:56 PM

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

Future of the Dodge Line-up

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

More On the Dodge Hornet

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

What Else To Expect From Dodge?

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

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

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

What Drivers Gain With the 2020 Grand Caravan

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

More Perks of the Dodge Grand Caravan

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

Building On Prior Success

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

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

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

When Come The Barracuda Come Out?

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

Other Nameplates That Have Returned

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

Dodge Switches Up Splitter Guard Color With A Dramatic Change

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

Here Comes the Hot Pink Flare

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

Guard The Paint Job With No Splitter Guards

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

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

We Are All Waiting For the Durango SRT Hellcat

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

Ready For the Hellcat SUV?

The 2021 Dodge Durango is set to add the monstrous Hellcat trim to its line-up, almost as compelling as any in the Hellcat family. Looking for an SRT Hellcat muscle vehicle?

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

UConnect 5 Is Smooth, Fast, and Easy To See

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

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

The Perks of Uconnect 5

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

Improved Features of the Uconnect System

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

2006 Dodge Viper Twin Turbo Is the Fastest Viper Ever

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

The Fastest Viper Ever

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

Enhanced 2006 Dodge Viper Twin Turbo

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

A Flying Dodge Viper?

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

The New 2021 Dodge Durango Has Been Spotted

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

What Will the New Durango Look Like?

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

Why Opt for the Durango?

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

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

Where Does Dodge Go Next?

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

Improving the Dodge Line-Up

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

Perks of the Dodge Charger Widebody

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

Dodge Headlines In 2019

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

Dodge Hits New Milestones

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

Dodge Was Focused On Big Results For Customers

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

Lots To Celebrate For Dodge

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

FCA Has Completed Their Merge With PSA Groupe

By bradr | Posted in Dodge Dealership Miami, Dodge Dealerships, Dodge Dealerships in Miami, Dodge Durango on Friday, December 20th, 2019 at 9:24 AM
Merger Miami Lakes Automall

Merger Miami Lakes Automall

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

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

Changes To Each Current Brand?

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

A Closer Look At Each Brand

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

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

2020 Dodge Journey Crossroad
2020 Dodge Journey Crossroad

2020 Dodge Journey Crossroad, Photo credit: Dodge

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

On the Horizon For the Dodge Journey

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

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

All About That Power

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

More Than Just Strong, The Durango Is Rich With Luxury

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

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

All the Perks of the Special Edition Challenger

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

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

Dodge Has Become More Reliable Than Ever

Today, Dodge owners know not only will their muscle car deliver on excellent horsepower and resell value, but they will also be satisfied with the reliability as well. According to a new Consumer Reports Auto Reliability Survey, Dodge has earned for the first time a Top 10 finish on this list. The above-average rating for the Challenger as well as the Dodge Grand Caravan has helped Dodge jumped 13 higher spots than the 2018 survey. The survey focused on the 2000-2019 model years based on data from over 400,000 vehicles. Thinking about more reasons to own a Dodge vehicle?

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

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

Week Three Has Arrived

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

Dodge Muscle Cars Have All the Power Drivers Could Want

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

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

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

Recap of Recent Contest Results

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

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

This Week’s Question + Guidelines

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

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

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

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

Details On the 1,000 Horsepower Challenger

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

More on the Capture and Eventual Trip To Sema

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

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

Brief History of Horsepower Creation

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

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

Horsepower In the Automotive Industry

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

Dodge Keeps Pushing the Horsepower Limit

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

2020 Dodge Barracuda: Rumor or Next Dodge Car?

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

More Speculation On the Barracuda

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

What Will the Barracuda Have?

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

Dodge Challenger Reigns Supreme In 2019

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

How Did Dodge Pull So Far Ahead of the Rest?

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

Maybe It’s the Muscle?

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

Perhaps the Success Is Due To Versatility 

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

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

Ending the Run On a High Note

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

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

The large wing was replaced with a special decklid, a rear-quarter Daytona decal with a matching spoiler instead.

“Fifty years ago, Dodge launched the infamous Dodge Charger Daytona model with its huge wing and massive nose specifically designed to dominate in NASCAR racing. The Daytona prototype was the first car to break 200 mph average lap speed and set a record that stood for 17 years,” Dodge said in regards to the new edition.

State Fair of Texas Miami Lakes Automall

State Fair of Texas Miami Lakes Automall

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

How FCA Has Made All Their Great Vehicles

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

Not Just Muscle Cars Go Fast

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

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

Experience the Acceleration of the Dodge Line-up

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

Breaking Down the 2020 Dodge Challenger Packages

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

Shop With Confidence and Our Help

Want to experience all that is offered with the beauty muscle power in a 2019 Dodge Challenger? Allow us to make your Dodge muscle car dreams a reality for those who want to buy or lease one. Our professional sales team can also help with trade-in offers as well.

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

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

How is this possible?

Dodge Perfects Their Launch Control

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

Things To Consider When Shopping For a Challenger

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

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

Splitter Miami Lakes Automall

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.

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.

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?

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.

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

A Special Engine For a Reason

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

Everyone Wants a Hellephante Crate

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

What Vehicles Can Drive With the Hellephante?

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

Dodge Challenger Outselling Chevy Camaro For the First Time

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.
