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

Look For Details Every Day Starting Soon!

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

More On the Upcoming Contest

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

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

Interested In Horsepower? We’ve Got You Covered

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?

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.

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.
