Miami Lakes Dodge Challenger Cooking Turkey Engine

Heyo! Thanksgiving is literally around the corner, next Thursday, and with that, some are in a panic. If they aren’t now, they will be.

The worst thing to happen around this time of year though is usually needing to cook a turkey, sometimes in a short amount of time. Luckily, there are a few infamous ways to cook a turkey.

To Grandmother’s House We Go

This one has been around a bit, and was made popular by Manifold Destiny. It’s a book all about how to cook while on-the-go. No, really on the go. As in, cook a 5-pound turkey breast with vegetables on the way to the dinner party. A quick little background for this set-up – plan to drive for about four hours, assuming your dinner party isn’t around the block, and have the following ingredients:

Miami Lakes Dodge Journey Family

Family-Oriented 2016 Dodge Journey

Miami Lakes Dodge Journey FamilyWhen people hear the Dodge name, they think of two things – muscle cars and family cars. We talk plenty about the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger, so let’s put the family cars in the spotlight this time around. Particularly, one that doesn’t get the love and appreciation it deserves for such a family-friendly and oriented vehicle. Did you know the Dodge Journey might be the next car for your family?

Seating and Cargo

So to start off, the Dodge Journey has up to three rows of seating and can seat up to seven passengers at a time (five is the standard). Quite comfortably, too. The driver’s seat is six-way adjustable, and for instances where cargo is needed and no front passenger is in the car, the front passenger seat can be folded down for more room. Speaking of cargo, the second row is a 60/40 split-fold, and for easy access to the third row, the second-row seats tilt and slide forward. Plus, the Dodge Journey comes with integrated second-row child booster seats.

Drivers want comfortable interiors, up-to-date technology, great fuel economy and safety, and why shouldn’t they? Those are the standards for vehicles today, and if one were to scrimp on either, well, it wouldn’t make the “Yes” pile when it comes to making a buying decision.

That’s why we take a hard look at vehicles when drawing up a comparison, from the engine specs to the safety and convenience features. Today, we’re taking a look at two 7-passenger seating mid-size SUVs/CUVs: the Dodge Journey and the GMC Acadia.

Miami Lakes Dodge Car Family

Dodge Family Cars and Specialties

Miami Lakes Dodge Car FamilyWhen on the road with family, there are a lot of things the modern driver takes into consideration. Will there be enough room for everyone and everything? Will I be able to keep the kids entertained on long drives? Is my car safe enough if an accident were to occur? These are the questions that pass through our mind when we have precious cargo on board. To give families vehicles that will take care all of their needs,  Dodge has 3 vehicles that answer all of those questions with “Yes.”

Storage and Seating Space

Three family cars by Dodge have plenty of space. First off, the Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Journey (all trims but the Journey SE), and Dodge Durango all have a seating capacity of seven passengers. Moreover, each of these vehicles has a variety of ways to store cargo.

The Dodge Grand Caravan has the famous Stow ‘n Go seating. This design allows drivers to fold up not just the second, but also the third row into the floor of the van, opening up a total of 140 cubic feet of storage space. With a family unit average of 4-5 people, there’s enough room for everyone in the front and second row, and then space for cargo with the third row folded down.

In addition to the convenient easy fold-down seats, when the seats are not folded down, there is plenty of storage room in the bins that would store the seats. These bins offer plenty of out-of-the-way storage space for beach things, camping equipment or even a safety kit.

Dodge Charger v Ford Mustang

Comparison: Dodge Charger v Ford Mustang

Miami Lakes Dodge Charger Ford MustangThere’s no hiding the fact that a Ford Mustang and a Dodge Charger are both American muscle cars, and they are both chosen for speed. Though the two vehicles may seem similar for that reason, there are actually a lot of differences between the two if you take a close look. For this article however, we’re focusing on the most basic trim for each.

Engine

Both vehicles feature V6 engines, but they differ in engine sub-type. A 3.6L 24-valve VVT V6 engine is standard in the Dodge Charger; it’s an engine designed to open or close the valve earlier to improve performance and fuel economy. A 3.7L Ti-VCT engine, which is standard in the Ford Mustang is similar but it operates based on a twin-independent variable camshaft system, also to increase performance.

Coming in at 300 horsepower, the Ford Mustang is capable of generating about 8 more horsepower than the Dodge Charger’s 292 horsepower engine.

The Dodge Charger has a slightly better fuel economy than the Mustang. The Charger gets an average of 19 MPG when in the city and 31 MPG when on the highway and the Ford Mustang averages 17 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.
