There is a feeling within the Dodge community that the V8 engines of today are going to skyrocket in value. The most obvious reason is Dodge is going out of the gasoline-focused V8 powertrains business and headed to an electric future. There have been some new reports that though the electrification plans are new, they are going full force into the commitment towards building the brand with EV intentions for each vehicle. The report names Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, as the force behind turning Dodge into the premiere brand among its many options. 

Six All-Electric Vehicles Are Being Made

Dodge is rumored to have as many as “six all-electric vehicles currently in the styling studio in Auburn Hills, Michigan.” There is also news that “at least one, but probably several plug-in hybrids” are slated to be created. Whether this is concept vehicles or the turning of a new leaf for the Dodge brand, the report from The Detroit Bureau has Dodge making big changes. While this news is nothing new, we now have some more light shed on what is expected to change for the brand. The days of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon or even the follow up vehicles in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye or Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock, we can expect changes to start showing by next year. Dodge will have no problem doing all the hard work towards its electric future alone. According to another report, the Dodge brand has passed on getting any assistance from Tesla.

The Final Days of Purely Gasoline Driven Muscle?

The 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger will offer a variant of change as the new-generation is expected to show. The other brands under the guidance of Stellantis have already pushed out the latest plug-in hybrid or fully electric vehicles in the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel and Jeep Wrangler 4xe trim. The best EVs in the world could one day arrive in the form of the greatest muscle cars available; all included from the Dodge brand! Keep in mind that Stellantis has already decided to move the Dodge brand into a new plan that was revealed earlier this month when plans were described, “Between 2025 and 2030, our product range will gradually become purely electric. This will be a radical change,” Stellantis CEO Oilvier Francois. The future is rapidly approaching and our goal is to remain as prepared as we are today at providing our customers with the newest Dodge vehicles.

Hornet Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge Hornet Returning To the Fold?

Hornet Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge is revitalizing an older nameplate in the Dodge Hornet. This vehicle will join the currently short list of Dodge vehicles. The Dodge brand arrived with a Dodge Hornet concept that was shown off in 2006, but it never debuted. 2006 was the same year the Dodge Charger was reintroduced to the world. The 2006 Hornet concept was produced with hopes to see the prototype turn into a production vehicle in 2008 with the Challenger. Dodge at that time was about to start with a big push in the European markets and aspired to thrust the Hornet by 2010. The platform of the Hornet would end up being the same one applied to the Alfa Romeo Giulietta. This meant the Dodge sedan would offer this “C-Evo” platform and notwithstanding the Hornet name being trademarked in 2011, they opted to name the vehicle the Dodge Dart instead. The Dodge Dart is no longer offered by Dodge, but they still produce two cars and the popular SUV, the Dodge Durango, alongside the famed Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger muscle cars.

Added Production Choices Are Being Revealed

The COVID-19 outbreak slowed the production for Dodge for three months. This was something that hindered the Dodge Hornet, as Alfa Romeo’s new CEO, previously of Peugeot, new expectations of enhanced performance from the Tonale’s PHEV drivetrain. As of April, Automotive News reports, Stellantis aimed to commence Tonale production in March 2022 and start sales on June 4 of 2022. This would indicate that the Dodge Hornet’s arrival could be in around the same time frame. In a story written by Passione Auto Italiane, the most current Dodge vehicles are expected to be produced alongside the forthcoming Alfa Romeo Tonale at the Pomigliano D’Arco plant in Italy. We are always looking ahead to what Dodge will provide customers next, but the new era of Dodge vehicles is coming sooner than later; starting with the Dodge Hornet we hope.

Likelihood of the Dodge Hornet

The ongoing rumor for the 2022 Dodge Hornet also insists that the Hornet will be produced on the sub-Stelvio crossover. As such, it will be using the same turbo 2.0-Liter GME engine. While the news didn’t discuss anything about a hybrid variant of the Dodge crossover, we can presume so considering the Alfa Romeo Tonale will produce a PHEV version, but this is the notion that affected its schedule. There are remarkable expectations that Dodge might even go the route its fellow Stellantis brand, Jeep, is headed with a fully electric vehicle approaching. Ultimately, we can expect that to happen, but currently, the current age of Dodge vehicles is nevertheless here for now. When looking at the 2021 model year Dodge muscle cars, and we are still grateful for the heart-racing power and enjoyment brought to us by the Dodge brand.

Dodge Ready To Make Durango Faster For 2022 Model Year

Good news for those who were wondering if the 2020 global pandemic was still affecting the automotive industry. For some companies that might be the case, but Dodge has expanded its Dodge Durango production by over 50% in terms of volume. If that doesn’t answer the question for the fact the pandemic has come to somewhat of a halt, Dodge is prepared to continue offering the fast and furious Durango. The top-tier three-row large Dodge SUV option is preparing for the next model year with greater perks offered to customers.

Durango Long Established Perks: Speed and Power

The 2022 Dodge Durango has improved the power and the speed. The optional 6.4-Liter HEMI V8 engine offers 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The top speed of 180 mph is the fastest option for the SUV segment. The high-performance SUV has comfortable aspects all throughout the center including among many features; a 19-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system, a power sunroof, plus a rear-seat DVD system with the Premium Interior package are all excellent choices. A tech package extends advances in safety including blind-spot and rear cross-traffic detection. For those who want a large-size SUV that can fit eight safely, this is the choice to secure. Owners can attest, the Dodge Durango SRT is the quickest three-row SUV on the market with its extraordinary 4.4 second 0-60 time. Of course, while the SRT trim presents all these features, all Durango trims offer a lot for customers to appreciate. 

The End of the Short-Lived Durango SRT Hellcat 

The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat trim is off the board for the 2022 Durango however. New regulations have been added to the Durango including limiting the evaporative emissions of the vehicles, holding back the chance to continue the Durango SRT Hellcat. The upcoming production of the Durango will include all the trims from the previous year, except for a lone 3,000 vehicles that will complete the order of the fastest-three-row production SUV on the market. 

“When we switch to ’22 model year, there’s new evaporative emission requirements that come in that the Hellcat engine does not meet in that platform. And with the change in platforms for the next generation Jeep Grand Cherokee, it’s a one year cycle,” said Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis
