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?

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

Across the wide range of vehicles, categories include new car, light truck owners, a variety of luxury car segments, and more are covered.

Drag Miami Lakes Automall

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.

Redeye Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge Has Improved Its Fastest Charger Ever

Redeye Miami Lakes Automall

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.
