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.

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.

2022 Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge Remains Committed To SRT Brand For the Future

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
