How Much Faster Is the Dodge Charger Today Vs 50 Years Ago?

The Dodge Charger of today is quite an exhilarating experience for owners and passengers alike. While fewer cars are on the road today, even fewer are packed with the kind of engineering feats offered by the Dodge Charger muscle car. The modern Charger is exceptional and definitely different from the famed Dodge Charger vehicles of old. But just how much faster and stronger is the 2021 Dodge Charger compared to the beloved Charger muscle cars from half a century ago? Does the 1971 Dodge Charger hold up? The Charger from 1971 was new and ran through the 1974 model. The price back then was a staggeringly low $3,775. A rear-wheel drive car with a V8 engine that offers 230 horsepower in the base trim and as much as 425 horsepower at the high end. Dodge manufactured exactly 82,114 of these classic muscle cars.

Improvements and Added Value In the Charger 

The Dodge brand is currently enjoying awards that have long been established as some of the most important in the industry: winning a top spot of the J. D. Power Initial Quality Study for 2021. After winning the top spot in 2020, lately the most recent Dodge muscle cars have more than putting a smile on the face of owners. The 2021 Dodge Charger is packed with power, as much as 292 horsepower starting in the base Charger SRT trim and as much as 797 horsepower offered in the top-tier, 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye. We can’t say enough good things about this absolutely gorgeous and stunning Dodge muscle car. 

So Which Dodge Charger Is Stronger Between the Two?

For those that are keeping score, that’s a difference of 372 horsepower between the two highest trims for the respective Charger muscle cars of 1971 versus 2021. The Charger is roughly 1,500 pounds heavier in weight compared to the finish offered in the 1971 model year. Today’s Charger ranges in the 4,000 to 4,586 range while the 19171 model year Charger hit in the low 3,000 pound range. Despite the added weight, the modern Charger enjoys the perks of the latest technology to produce faster quarter-times. The 19171 Charger could go 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds and finish the quarter-mile in 13.73 seconds at 104 mph. Ready to be impressed? The 2021 Dodge Charger can go from 0 to 60mph in only 4.3 seconds and hits a 12.4 quarter-mile time.

The starting price for a new 2021 Dodge Charger goes for $31,125 MSRP (Plus destination fee). While the Dodge brand looks ahead to offering the upcoming Dodge EV muscle car for a new generation of buyers. These innovative choices are going to lead the way for all automotive brands including the Dodge brand.

Dodge Offers High Octane Speed and Satisfaction

Dodge has been trusted by many new owners to provide a remarkable driving experience; as of 2021, Dodge has now been named the most appealing brand, tied with Porsche. Examine the perks that come from the muscle bound brand and the first thought is the immense power from the massive V8 engines like the ones found in the Challenger and Charger models. Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, accepted the phenomenal rating of 882 based on the 1,000-point scale. This is the second year in a row that they earned this rating based on the APEAL study from J.D. Power. The Dodge brand was ranked highest with fellow Stellantis brand, Ram, earning the second-highest point total. Dodge earned these impressive J.D. Power marks after 110,827 owners of brand new 2021 model year vehicles were surveyed after 90 days of ownership. 

How Dodge Has Gained Such Flair

Looking deeper into the 2021 J.D. Power study, the data unveils how owners reflect and react to their new purchases and note how they feel regarding their vehicle. Dodge is known for providing a unique experience for drivers that includes immense power and strength coupled with precise handling. The new 2021 Charger Scat Pack Widebody is a famous example extending extraordinary value and significant thunder to make owners relish the purr and roar of this SRT car. Street Racing Technology (SRT) might become a thing of the past with the launch of the new generation Challenger and Charger trims coming out when the next-generation models appear in fewer than two years. 

“One of the biggest factors driving the industry’s improvement this year is the introduction of several highly appealing new models. The APEAL Study measures owners’ emotional attachment to their new vehicle, and the product launches that took place this model year have done a really good job. Some are all-new and some are redesigns, but the new launches demonstrate that automakers are getting even better at hitting buyers’ emotional triggers,” David Amodeo, director of global automotive at J.D. Power, said in the release.

Now Is the Best Time To Experience the 2021 Dodge Line-up

This is a reminder to all customers looking to grip the current trend of heart-racing speeds through gasoline powertrains and pitch-perfect engines that hold nothing back for owners. Notwithstanding, we are sure the Dodge EV collection will nevertheless offer impressive muscle, as Dodge CEO has declared on various occasions. We’re just sure the days of the electric muscle will grab the attention of many shoppers, but early on they might not be too enthusiastic about the latest products Dodge is working on. Luckily, for those buyers that are accustomed to the purr of a fierce Dodge engine can find solace in the current crop of Dodge rides. We could even have a new Dodge SUV at some point in the future to offer our customers. For now, shop with us to find the Dodge that is atop the automotive world currently.

Dodge, Stellantis Earn Top Spot On J.D. Power IQS For 2021

With the future of the Dodge brand moving towards electric vehicles, 2021 might go down as one of the fastest flying years on record, along with the record amount of Atlantic tropical storms. After last year’s seemingly never-ending to now being in the last season before 2022, we’ve come quite a long way. And during this whole experience, the Dodge brand has earned results to inspire buyers while hoisting another award. This time the trophy comes from the 2021 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study that lists Dodge as the brand that finishes second on a list that includes all the top automotive brands. Dodge won the top spot last year and isn’t far off this year. A 223-question study was given to new car owners who felt the most positive and pleasant initial encounter was with these brands. Each year, this survey helps new car shoppers reflect on their experience with a vehicle over the course of the first few months of ownership. 

“If you start with strong design, and follow that up with discipline on the plant floor, you get the kind of results we’re seeing today,” metro Detroit native Mark Champine, head of North America customer experience at Stellantis, said in a news release.

Into the Numbers of 2021 J.D. Power’s IQS

Each year, this J.D. Power survey helps new car shoppers reflect on their experience with a vehicle over the course of the first few months of ownership (the first ninety days of ownership to be specific). This is when problems should least likely appear and buyers want to know what to expect; if any problems appear, what they liked most, and other important aspects of purchasing a vehicle. Based on the problems listed per 100 vehicles, the system includes ways to gauge gain information on serious mechanical issues to problems with the infotainment system. Dodge owners only experience 139 complaints per 100 vehicles. The survey includes tens of thousands of responses each year. A big issue is smartphone connectivity across many brands. 

“They’ve done a particularly good job of preventing problems from occurring. The key is design quality. Most of the problems people report are not because vehicles aren’t built properly. The majority of problems are because vehicles aren’t designed properly or with the customer in mind. Often, the factories get the rough end of this. There is a problem with the navigation system, for instance. The assembly plants are responsible just for installing it into the vehicle. It’s not their fault the navigation system doesn’t work,” said David Sargent, vice president of automotive quality at J.D. Power, told the Free Press.

Dodge Showing Off More Details Involving Electric Vehicle Plans

Friday, August 27th, 2021

With the future of the Dodge brand moving towards electric vehicles, we have a tight window of time before the fastest Dodge options may actually be electrified! While we are excited for the changes, we are also tempted to tell our customers to snag up the Dodge collection as it currently exists. The high-octane Dodge muscle cars like the Dodge Charger and Challenger are exceptional beasts with their available V8 powertrains. The new muscle cars that are going to be made by 2024 will include the entirely electric Dodge vehicle. There are reports that the EV might carry the “Fratzog” logo for all electric vehicles. The Fratzog is a made up word by a designer first used in 1962 through 1976 by the brand. We saw the Dodge brand bring this logo back when unveiling the 2021 EV Day. The concept vehicle has drawn a large amount of interest from fans. One fan is actually the CEO of Dodge, Tim Kuniskis.

“It damn near looks like something that Doc Brown would have done. It looks very futuristic and electrified, and it’s our history, which is what we do,” said Tim Kuniskis. Referring to Doc Brown, the well-known fictional character from Back to the Future. 

What Dodge Vehicle Will Gain the EV Treatment First?

We have only seen teasers of what this vehicle will be as well as no clue what the nameplate that will carry this upcoming, first-ever Dodge EV. Perhaps the Dodge Challenger will gain the EV, but we can’t say for certain. Keep in mind that the Challenger body has remained the same since the brand brought the vehicle back in 2008; this is the same for the Charger since 2006. Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, has invested upwards of $35.5 billion through 2035 for electric vehicles, which will include plug-in and hybrid vehicles. A plug-in hybrid is due out next year, so we are about a year from seeing this Dodge vehicle hit stores.Dodge understandably won’t just become an EV company solely or have their branding focus solely on EVs.

“We don’t want them to look radically different because we want you all to be part of the same thing. So, we said, ‘OK,’ if you have electrification in your car, we don’t want you to be screaming, ’I have electrification,” Kuniskis said, referring to Dodge’s “Brotherhood of Muscle” community.

The Dodge Concept That Didn’t See the Light of Day Till Years Later

The long history of the Dodge brand goes back many decades, but regarding one particular nameplate, the Charger, we are going to highlight one concept that debuted but did not turn into what was originally shown to customers. While many Dodge vehicles have come and gone obvious, but the brand first brought out the Charger in 1999. As automakers look to the past sometimes when restoring an old nameplate or basing a new vehicle with cues from a former star vehicle, we can always look back to acknowledge the famed records of the Dodge brand. Long before the intentions of building a new EV Dodge concepts, we had the Charger concept that debuted before the world over 21 years ago.

Observing At the 1999 Dodge Charger R/T Concept

The modern buzz to hit the interwebz is the sports car that was the 1999 Dodge Charger RT concept. Back then, the Dodge Charger R/T was first rolled out a firm seven years before the Dodge brand would offer the same body in the Dodge Charger today. As the 2021 Dodge Charger, we are used to impressive handling, speed, and high-octane fun. We also can admire the perks that have come as a consequence of the Dodge brand producing back the 2021 Dodge Challenger. But, that story is for a different day; let’s get into what made the 1999 Dodge concept so attractive.

Dodge Brand’s 1999 Take With the Charger

Back when the entire Dodge brand was headed by the Chrysler brand that desired to put together the Dodge brand in a new light with many ideas that were never made, including a Jeepster concept. This Charger vehicle would end up as flagship vehicle for the brand, but that wasn’t obvious till the vehicle was highly-sought after in 2006. The Charger was first thought of as a sports car, not quite a muscle car, and the gas mileage was somewhat greater than many would imagine. The debut was at the 1999 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. This Dodge Charger concept was more like a Dodge Viper with its silky and extended exterior appearance. The R/T concept had a 4.7-Liter V8 naturally-aspirated engine. The total output was 325 horsepower and a stunning look that for some reason wasn’t turned into a production car.

Dodge added this vehicle to its lineup eventually, but the famed concept ended up in one video game despite never being put out. The Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition allowed this car as a possible choice for gamers back in 2005, a full six years later. The Dodge brand has tons of experience with building up the Charger to become one of the most celebrated muscle cars ever made. Want to test-drive one now? We can help make that potential at Miami Lakes Automall today!

Dodge Prepares To Build Multiple Electric Vehicles And More Plans Revealed

Thursday, June 17th, 2021

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.

Dodge Hornet Returning To the Fold?

Friday, June 11th, 2021
Hornet Miami Lakes Automall

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 Ushering In A New Era For Buyers

Thursday, May 27th, 2021

Promising clues are being reported about the next steps of the Dodge brand. Dodge has determined to put a check on the V8 era that has advanced since Dodge returned the Dodge Charger muscle car for customers in 2006. During the last fifteen years, we’ve observed the increase of some of the most dominant muscle cars in mass production. The 2021 Dodge Charger and 2021 Dodge Challenger are both striking examples of where the brand currently stands, but what can we expect going ahead as the 2020s are already flying by? Early sales in 2021 saw Dodge move vehicles at a higher rate for the Dodge Durango, Charger, and Challenger models. This is a promising display that will empower more buyers to join the Dodge brand. So who is joining Dodge lately?

Dodge Growing With Younger Generation

From sales figures, an apparent trend has taken place for several years. Dodge has led the way with sales for the younger buyers. The Dodge brand knows where the future is headed, as the path towards electric vehicles (EVs) is the goal. Dodge is also aware that compared to rivals, they have the youngest buyers compared to other manufacturers like Chevrolet or Ford. Dodge first noted this a couple of years ago but has followed up with more evidence that they sell their vehicles to “the youngest demographic in the industry” according to Dodge. 

The car-buying demographic that presents most of Dodge’s business is diverse including the second-highest quantity of Asian, African Americans, and Latin buyers according to the Head of the Dodge Brand Sales Operations, Matt McAlear. The broad variety of V6 and V8 powertrains included in Dodge vehicles has pushed sales for years and extends to a new crop of buyers. However, the scope of these vehicles might alter with the renewed focus of Stellantis (parent company of Dodge) as they look to offer more fuel-efficient vehicles. 

2021 Has Proved Some Impressive Success

Dodge has seen an increase in sales that should exceed pre-pandemic numbers set in 2019. Dodge had begun to bring the focus away from creating 800 horsepower vehicles like the Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. However, there was a promise to continue the SRT (Street Racing Technology) vehicles for the near future. While these are the most impressive vehicles for any owner to want, they aren’t meeting the goal of what the future holds for the Dodge brand and its EV intentions.

“There hasn’t been a date drawn in the sand saying you’ll no longer be able to buy an iron block Hemi anymore, but everybody knows it’s coming and they want to enjoy [the engine] while they can. The replacements are going to be so much more exciting,” stated Matt McAlear, Dodge’s head of sales operations.  

Buying Has Never Been Easier With Our Help

Dodge Pushes Street Racing Technology To New Heights

Friday, May 21st, 2021
SRT Miami Lakes Automall

SRT Miami Lakes Automall

Most recently, regarding the Dodge brand, there were questions raised about whether Dodge will still deliver the fastest vehicles made in mass production anywhere in the world. Dodge settled on keeping the promise to offer these impressive vehicles for the present, future, and beyond. Like the rest of the competition, Dodge is ready to defend its high-octane, high-performance. The strongest and fastest Dodge muscle cars aren’t only quick for Dodge, they are the quickest among all mass-production sedans in the entire world. Recognition should be given to Dodge’s engine power created by the monstrous 6.2-Liter HEMI high-output V8 powertrain. The engine reaches 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. When we think of Dodge vehicles today, we think of the most agile and most robust options known as SRT vehicles. Allow us to present our readers a concise history of the SRT and what buyers will notice if they go for one this summer. 

Inside the Perks of SRT Vehicles

We look at each SRT “Street Racing Technology” vehicle differently, but they all hold the main purpose of the Dodge brand. For those that want an extraordinary and heart-racing reality when behind the wheel should opt for any of the newest Dodge SRT models. Originally, the SRT vehicles started as the Team Viper members of the Dodge Viper were venturing to create a new platform for vehicles. Team Viper worked hand and hand with the Plymouth Prowler. Dodge is still focused on bettering their products by creating more horsepower and EV possibilities.

Drivers looking for a remarkable vehicle should look no further than what Dodge has understood after years of hard work with its 2021 model year collection. The SRT society includes the famed 2021 Dodge Challenger coupe muscle car, 2021 Dodge Charger sedan muscle car, and the 2021 Dodge Durango SUV. The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, which is set above the Hellcat Widebody and is the prized option for the Charger lineup, starting at $80,090 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye begins at $72,295 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The entry point for the Dodge Challenger SRT is the Hellcat that begins at a low $59,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee). 

What Kind of Performance Can Owners Expect?

The 2021 Dodge Challenger Hellcat comes with an impressive array of options and a standard engine experience that rewards drivers with a 0-60 mph time of just 3.7 seconds. Remarkably, the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat hits a 0 to 60 mph time in a mere 3.5 seconds! For those customers that want to test-drive a new Dodge vehicle, chat with us today about how we can make the process easier than expected. The prices are not for the faith of heart, but for those who are ready to make an investment towards something they will appreciate and feel secure with. The Dodge muscle family will always welcome new members!

Dodge Doesn’t Need Any Additional EV Help From Tesla

Dodge is racing ahead of the muscle car segment, firing on all cylinders. The first-quarter of Dodge sales already in the books, with a wide margin gained in just the first three months. The automaker is pushing its muscle brand with an eye in the past and the build towards the future. As electrification becomes less of a subtle focus and the main focus of the automotive industry, brands like Dodge will have to keep in step. This has not been lost on the Dodge brass at the top of the ladder. 

“The days of an iron-block supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 are numbered. They’re absolutely numbered because of all the compliance costs. But the performance that those vehicles generate is not numbered,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge CEO. 

The Move Away From Muscle?

What change can we expect? While we are not certain about the first electric vehicle that will be offered by Dodge, we know there will be one. Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, has helped to push every brand a part of the company into a new electric vehicle territory. The next couple years will see new 2023 and 2024 model year vehicles offer the future of the brand. Dodge has not settled down composing its greatest efforts in vehicles like the 2020 Dodge Challenger Super Stock. However, we know the Dodge brand is no longer looking to put out the horsepower in vehicles like this or the one-year-run of the famed 2018 Dodge SRT Demon, a Challenger that first pushed the brand into the 800+ horsepower territory that the Super Stock offers. 

No Help From Tesla Required

While there was a report that Tesla might be involved in helping the Stellantis brands, like Dodge, to gain a step up on the EV production, that is no longer the case. When speaking about the tax credits and investments Stellantis has to worry about in the global market, the truth is they are more than capable of handling the push towards EV. Just the right amount of forward thinking will go a long way for the Dodge brand as they look to make their own mark on the EV market without the help from competitors, like Tesla. 

“With the electrical technology that PSA brought to Stellantis, we will meet carbon dioxide emission regulations as early as this year. Thus, we will not need to call on European CO2 credits and FCA will no longer have to pool with Tesla or anyone,” remarked Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares
