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.

2016 Dodge Charger Pursuit Integrates Uconnect System

2016-dodge-charger-pursuit-02

For the first time ever, Dodge’s Uconnect system will be integrated with law enforcement’s computer system to upgrade their Charger Pursuit; America’s high performance police vehicle.

Designed by police officers for police officers, this integrated system is accessed via computer which stays tucked away in the trunk and is displayed on the segment’s largest 12-inch touchscreen located on the center instrument panel.

This touchscreen will eliminate the need for the officer’s laptop in the car which also eliminated the need for oversized bulky components that can be unsafe and contribute to disorganization. The 12.1-inch touchscreen is about the same size as a laptop and will be able to provide and pull up all the necessary information for police officers when responding to a call or reporting a traffic violation.

This segment-exclusive integration will further ensure that Dodge will be able to provide our everyday heroes with the proper tools and most secure vehicles to succeed in their job.  Your Dodge dealership in Miami knows how important it is to provide security for our officers so they, in turn, can provide safety for us.

(Fondly) Remembering the Dodge Neon

Neon-6

The year was 2007. I was a sophomore in high school and just recently turned 16 years old. Naturally, I wanted my own car, but I also didn’t have the money to afford my own wheels. Eventually, with some help from my parents and family friends, I came across a 2000 Chrysler Neon. The compact front-wheel drive car would serve as the setting for some great high school memories, and I’m pretty sure it’s still being used by my mom’s hairdresser (my parents sold it off once I went to college).

There’s no denying that it was a reliable car, so allow me to reminisce for the next 1,000 words or so. In fact, when you’re finished reading the review, you may be inclined to visit your local Dodge dealership in Miami. Even if you’re not targeting a Neon, you’ll still be impressed with the company’s impressive selection of vehicles…
