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 Viper Miami Lakes

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.

2021 Durango 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.

2019-Dodge Challenger-SRT-Hellcat-Widebody

What’s Next For Dodge?

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

Where Does Dodge Go Next?

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

Improving the Dodge Line-Up

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

The Widebody option comes for the R/T trim, the Scat Pack trim, as well as the SRT Hellcat trim. 

Perks of the Dodge Charger Widebody

The Widebody adds 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque along with a 3.5-inch wider tire grip for better handling and sharper turns. The Charger Widebody is faster on the track and can be felt with ease for any driver looking for one. Stocked with 305-section Pirelli P-Zero tires that improve grip and wrapped by 20-inch deep-dish wheels, this muscle car looks as sharp as it drives. The Challenger Widebody also receives the 3.5-inch wider tires and handles like a dream. The Widebody trim option packs Brembo brakes, three-mode adaptive dampers from Bilstein and six-piston calipers are apart of the Charger that also introduced a new electric power steering system. 

The SRT Hellcat trim will be an option for Widebody for both vehicles and packs the 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque that offers immense strength and impressive driveability.
