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

Phenomenal Engine Strength

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

Superior Durango Interior

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

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

Towing Strength?

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

Dodge Charger Is the Most Searched Muscle Car

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

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

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


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

What Changes Are Expected For the Next Dodge Charger?

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

Why Do Sports Cars Only Have Two Doors?

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

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

How Do Insurance Companies Define Sports Cars

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

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

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Dodge-Charger SRT Hellcat

The New 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Has Demon DNA

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Dodge-Charger SRT Hellcat

Back when we received a tease about the 2019 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat trims, there wasn’t much Dodge seemed inclined on sharing. There were two teaser images, a profile for the Challenger SRT Hellcat and a look at its new hood, and another teaser image for the Charger SRT Hellcat with a focus on its front fascia grille. There was talk about improving horsepower, maybe a new Hellcat engine, and even some SRT Demon bits thrown in to keep the gates of Hell open a little longer. Summer is here, and as promised, Dodge released more news about their 2019 high-powered sedan.

Recap of What’s New

In case we’re not all caught up here, there is a lot of talk about stretching the horsepower of the Dodge SRT Hellcat trims by a little for 2019. With the not-so-amazing reception of the SRT Demon, Dodge is using the experience and the technology used to develop the SRT Demon engine to improve upon what already works – a muscle car that is more inclined to be used on the street, but can still burn up the race track. With this in mind, it can’t be a coincidence that Dodge is also going with a more iconic look to pay homage to its heritage, once again, for 2019.
