Want More Horsepower From Your Challenger? Dodge Can Help

2021 Challenger Miami Lakes Automall

Muscle car aficionados hoping to start the new year off right will have the chance to do so. Owners of late-model Challengers will now gain a tad more backing to upgrade their stock power from the Dodge brand. The automaker conveyed this month from its Auburn Hill, Michigan headquarters that it intends to proceed to release a series of Direct Connection parts and performance-enhancing kits for late-model Challengers. The rollouts include 14 new kits for Challengers and 13 race-ready kits and four graphics products for the new Dodge Challenger Mopar Drag Pak. 

The Dodge Challenger kits include “Tuner” and “Stage” products set the horsepower to even increased heights of 885 horsepower in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and as much as 750 horsepower in the Challenger SRT Hellcat. Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye owners can choose among three basic performance kits, including a pre-stage package that contains a performance air cleaner, a low-temperature thermostat, and a pre-loaded 50-state emissions-legal calibration geared to add up to five horsepower to the engine.

Owners Can Gain More With Various Stage Upgrades

For drivers, the Stage I upgrades hands owners’ entry to calibration, delivering up to 850 horsepower and 770 foot-pounds of torque. And a Stage II upgrade kit includes the highly beloved “Hellephant” equipment including the same engine pulley as well as a code to establish calibration that extends engine capacity to a stunning 885 horsepower and 787 foot-pounds of torque. Owners of a Challenger SRT Hellcat can order a pre-stage package with a tuner and calibration that provides another five horsepower to the engine and passes for future upgrades, like the Stage I kit that includes a “Hellephant” and calibration invented to boost engine performance to 757 horsepower and 696 foot-pounds of torque. Direct Connection will also feature car parts created to upgrade Challengers with kits that contain cylinder heads, 41-spline half shafts, driveshafts, differential assemblies, drivelines, and torque converters. Dodge is finalizing each part available as an entire installation kit. Reach out to us to get started on making an online service appointment for the update.

“Direct Connection will continue its rollout next year with a lineup of 200-plus parts, and with a network of Dodge Power Brokers dealers trained and equipped to help enthusiasts take that performance to the next level. The opening of orders for Direct Connection performance parts in the first quarter of 2022 is just the start — the lineup of Direct Connection products and Dodge Power Brokers dealers will continue to grow in the years ahead,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand Chief Executive Officer at the automaker’s parent company Stellantis.

What Was the Dodge Polara Muscle Car?

Dodge is expanding to new EV efforts, so many customers are speculating if they will still pack the same power the brand has offered for decades. The long-time fans of the brand might be shocked to see an electric Dodge muscle car. Those who remember the 1960s will know the Dodge golden era of muscle. The 1960 Dodge Polara was the first-ever muscle car made by the Dodge brand in the 1960s and wound up being the most successful Dodge nameplate with success lasting the entire decade. The stretch from 1960 through 1970 when the Dodge Challenger overtook the Dodge brand as its top-flight Dodge vehicle. The Dodge brand has seen their muscle car sales grow to figures that are comparable to pre-Covid-19 numbers.  

A History of the Dodge Polara

The Dodge Polara saw its first-generation range from 1960 to 1961 and after two years, the second-generation was presented as the figures from 1961 declined 50% from the year before. The 1962 Dodge Polara was the start of a smaller muscle car that saw its wheelbase shortened to 116 inches. The Dodge Polara would offer its third-generation from 1965 and 1968 with the muscle car going into a full-size C platform build. The Polara replaced the Dodge 880 and was the top vehicle for the brand. The Dodge Polara ended with its fourth-generation that came out in 1969 and served for five years. The 1973 Polara was the last one made as the Dodge brand formed the Monaco to supersede the vehicle in 1974. The Dodge Polara was vended as a Classic car for $18,113 on October 14th, 2020 at an auction in Toronto, Canada to give buyers a notion of the tremendous resale significance affixed to all Dodge vehicles.

Dodge Muscle Cars Are Changing For the Better

Dodge has seen their muscle cars of today expand to wild horsepower numbers, as much as 800 horsepower with modern help ramping up the final product. Dodge has put a lot of stock into making their vehicles maximize their prospects by withdrawing certain trims or vehicles to get the most out of the brand. One vehicle that might alter is the Durango that could pivot into a new vehicle. Look at the modifications coming, but know the awards the brand has garnered has pointed to the right direction with distinctions being named for the brand quite often.

Dodge Spending Billions To Improve Software & Technology

The changes of the pandemic are widespread, both for consumers and automakers. The one constant is the hope to see life change for the better and quickly, but luckily we are seeing the results of new goals and future endeavors of massive brands pumping tons of money into innovation. The results are beginning to show as Dodge is moving away from traditional, same ol’, same ol’ entries with new energy and creations for buyers. The truth also can be found that currently, there are not enough vehicles to go around as demand is growing rapidly for these new vehicles.

How the CEO Approaches New Challenges

The CEO of Stellantis, Carlos Tavares, has addressed this as recent as this week a few weeks before 2022 arrives, how popular this year has been for car sales. When speaking before journalists, Tavares had this to say. The next move for the brand is ramping up production towards the electrified muscle cars, but a large focus is knowing many people want the current vehicles Dodge has.

 “My order book is going through the roof. People want to buy cars. It’s amazing. It’s as if we have all discovered through the COVID crisis how important it is to protect our freedom of mobility. And therefore, what’s the best way to protect my freedom of mobility is to have a car,” Tavares remarked while at a former Dodge Viper plant now known as the Conner Center.

Dodge Moves Ahead With Software Upgrades

The collection of Dodge vehicles has changed from cars like the Dodge Viper to more consumer-approved, fuel-friendly options. Over the course of this next decade, we will see even better options added for consumers. Battery electric vehicles are more expensive to manufacture; they are as much as 50% more expensive. The source of Dodge and other Stellantis brands’ innovation comes from software expansion. The better they are strategizing, the better the vehicles will be for consumers.There is no doubt the Dodge brand is making waves. Dodge has put together $22.6 billion dollars towards upgrading their software and changing the driving experience with “software-enabled products” and subscription services. The Stellantis brand is also trying to build on its autonomous vehicle development with its established partnerships with both BMW and Waymo. In total $34 billion has gone into electrification and these software developments through 2025.  For those interested in driving the new Dodge muscle cars, check with us at Miami Lakes Automall!
