Literally speaking, the 2020 Durango SRT is the fastest three-row SUV ever built. Amongst the competition Dodge faces from the likes of BMW and Porsche, no other rival company has produced any real competition for the Durango SRT. The Dodge three-row SUV carries an incredible 6.4-Liter V8 HEMI engine that affords drivers with a wicked 475 horsepower and impressive 470 lb-ft of torque. Let’s share all the latest features added to this incredible vehicle. Buyers don’t have to opt for a Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger to get a fast vehicle by Dodge. We’ll show you why the latest Durango has earned the respect of other brands and customers everywhere.

All About That Power

There is one other powertrain option for customers to side with, should they not want the massive power of the V8 HEMI, buyers can opt for the trusted  3.6-Liter Pentastar engine that produces 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Both powertrains are tied to a smooth Automatic 8-Speed transmission and a vehicle that has been engineered to deliver reliable results even in severe conditions. The Pentastar V6 can tow up to 6,200 pounds while the highest powertrain contributes 8,700 pounds of maximum towing capacity. So, when it comes to towing items, supplying drivers with sufficient strength and adding technology to keep drivers safe while driving. Considered one of the most comfortable SUVs along with being the fastest at its 4.4 second 0-60 time, there’s no vehicle that supplies as much as the new 2020 Dodge Durango.

More Than Just Strong, The Durango Is Rich With Luxury

Keep in mind, Dodge aims to supply comfort for all its customers and passengers. Included in the packages offered by Dodge, the SRT starts at $64,490 MSRP (Plus destination fee) and the technology group package gives adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and forward collision avoidance systems. The nicest materials are added into the SRT, including suede headliner, nicer upgrades along with the instrument panel and carbon fiber inserts that are added with a $2,495.

State Fair of Texas Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge Brings Their Best to Texas

State Fair of Texas Miami Lakes Automall

Everything is bigger in Texas. That’s a true statement, especially when Dodge rolls into the 2019 State Fair of Texas with its largest line-up ever. Dodge brought along the latest Grand Caravan, Journey, Charger, Challenger, and Durango for customers to see and behold. Drivers that want to spice up their daily driving routine would not only get a bargain on excitement but one of the best-produced vehicles on the roads in a current Dodge. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has worked hard to put together a top-notch group of vehicles and no brand represents their work quite like the Dodge brand. 

How FCA Has Made All Their Great Vehicles

Vehicles made by FCA and Dodge are possible thanks to the engineers and automakers that have a passion to bring out the best in each other. FCA has also done their best to reward their employees. For the 11th year in a row, FCA was named by the National Business Group on Health (NBGH) for their commitment to their employees. The award from the NBGh is the 2019 Best Employees: Excellence in Heath and Well-being Award. This is the ninth consecutive time that FCA is the only automaker to win this distinction. 

Not Just Muscle Cars Go Fast

Very few vehicles are able to handle quite like a Dodge, whether it’s their muscle cars or their Dodge Durango SUV. The Durango also carries an SRT version. The Street Racing Technology added to the SRT trim of the Durango and thus created the fastest three-row SUV in the world. Speaking on behalf of FCA, the parent company of Dodge, Steve Yandura, the Director of the Southwest Business Center for FCA US added this statement.

“We are bringing our best lineup yet to the State Fair of Texas, Texas Auto Show. Every year, we work to build on our past success at the fair and this year fair attendees will thoroughly enjoy our displays and interactives,”  – said Steve Yandura.

Experience the Acceleration of the Dodge Line-up

Don’t wait any longer to experience driving a Dodge vehicle. Amongst the many cars that have been produced for the muscle car segment, few offer as much value for the price as the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger. The latest editions from Dodge punctuate the strength of the brand. Dodge took the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye to show off at the State Fair of Texas. For drivers hoping to show off a vehicle of their own, driving the new SRT Hellcat Redeye is not a bad way to start. The 797 horsepower fitted from its remarkable 6.2-Liter turbocharged engine makes the SRT Hellcat Redeye stand out. This Dodge product is likely the most aggressively fast muscle car most car owners will ever drive. Want to know what these vehicles are like? Made with love and ready to be driven by owners who love them, we have the latest collection of Dodge vehicles today at Miami Lakes Automall.

There’s No Stopping the Upcoming 2020 Dodge Charger

The Dodge Charger has experienced growth in 2019 with new special editions on the horizon and some that have recently appeared. Many customers are awaiting the upcoming 2020 Dodge Charger, which should be arriving in dealerships later during the fall of 2019. We’re just as excited to see the latest Charger as there will be no stopping the success of this muscle sedan that keeps selling well despite the sedan segment slowing down in the automotive industry. The first-ever Dodge Charger SRT Widebody has added new attention to the Dodge muscle car fanbase, which is among the youngest compared to the competition. We’re ready to take our readers on a journey through the future of the Dodge Charger.

How the Dodge Charger Is Still So Successful

Despite not changing the body and frame of the Dodge Charger for over a decade, the Dodge Charger is still popular. The newest special edition is the 50th anniversary Dodge Charger Daytona Edition, which looks great and is a rare find with only 501 models made. Dodge and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) have more than a limited edition coming for the 2020 Charger. For those who can’t wait to get their hands on pure Dodge muscle, a promotion is running through September known as the Power Dollars promotion that buyers can still enjoy if they hurry.

More On the 2019 Sales

Now through September 30th, 2019, the Dodge Power Dollars promotion is a great incentive for those hoping for a wonderful deal to drive home a new 2019 Charger. The Power Dollars promotion helps buyers gain a cash rebate of $10 for each unit of horsepower in the vehicle they are purchasing. Customers that opt for the acclaimed top-tier Charger, the SRT Hellcat, can save an amazing $7,070. The rebate for this promotion applies to all trims of the latest Charger. The Dodge promotion is also available to other vehicles of the Dodge family, including the 2019 Dodge Challenger and 2019 Dodge Durango as well. For fans of these high-performance Dodge vehicles, this is the time to take them home on a fantastic deal. 

Thinking About the New Widebody?

Dodge can thank the Charger for an 8.8% increase in vehicle sales through the first half of 2019 versus the previous year, raising its total to 45,046 vehicles sold. We know buyers want to finally get their hands on the first widebody ever made for the Charger. The Widebody trim will provide drivers with extra rubber on the tires, more horsepower and greater traction for owners. Though the sedan market has seen declining sales, the Dodge Charger has only experienced increased sales. Speaking on the greatness of the Charger, Kevin Hellman, Dodge brand manager talked about the current state of the sedan market and the Dodge Charger and the upcoming Widebody trim.

“There are people that have been doing it in the aftermarket here and there, but I think directly from us is really what people have been waiting for. Other than the additional performance that we’ve added in terms of getting the grip to the ground, the car looks beautiful, too.” – Kevin Hellman, Dodge Brand Manager

FCA To Invest $4.5 Billion In Michigan Plants

FCA Plant Miami Lakes Automall

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is ramping up production plans in Michigan with a phenomenal $4.5 billion investment. The purpose for the investment is thanks to the two upcoming Jeep vehicles set to debut in early 2021. The first Jeep vehicle, a 3-row full-size SUV and the return of the Jeep Wagoneer and Jeep Grand Wagoneer. FCA knows all too well about the success of the Jeep brand in 2018 and they have wisely invested in extending the brand with an upcoming all-new pickup, named the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, and have started on creating the resurrection of the Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. We’re excited to share all the details for this expansion of the Jeep line-up and future FCA plans.

How Will the Money Be Spent?

The creation of nearly 6,500 jobs is expected along with the construction of a brand new production plant in Detriot, Michigan. The $4.5 billion will also be used to expand up to five facilities currently running in Michigan. About a third of the investment, approximately $1.6 billion will be used to convert the Mack Avenue Engine Complex in Detroit to a manufacturing site for the upcoming next-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee. This huge task will add 3,850 jobs.

“The move would increase capacity to meet the growing demand for its Jeep and Ram brands, including the production of two new Jeep-branded white space products, as well as electrified models,” according to a statement by FCA.

More Utilization of Funds

This large program will provide $1.5 billion of funds to help the Warren Truck Plant be able to ramp up production of the Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, as well as the assembly Ram 1500 Classic. This move is expected to bring 1,400 new jobs. Exactly $900 million will go into the Jefferson North Assembly Plant to help bring new and modern equipment to produce the next generation Jeep Grand Cherokee and the current Dodge Durango, adding another 1,100 new jobs. All of these assembly sites are expected to create plug-in hybrid versions of their respective Jeep vehicles. FCA expects to have new fully battery-electric models in the near future. A total of $405 million will be used to support further production at the Sterling Stamping and Warren Stamping planets with over 80 new jobs to be made at the Sterlign Heights plant.

New Production Placement For Trusted FCA Engine

One of the most popular FCA engines, the Pentastar 3.6-Liter V6 powertrain, will be relocated to the Dundee, Michigan plant. Moving from the Mack 1 plant in Detroit will cost $119 million and should not affect the current employee and production team at the Trenton Engine Plant. Both of those plants work specifically on the legendary engine that can be found in many Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, and Ram vehicles today. Speaking on behalf of FCA, CEO Mike Manley had this to say about all the upcoming changes and additional funding given to the Michigan plants.

“Three years ago, FCA set a course to grow our profitability based on the strength of the Jeep and Ram brands by realigning our U.S. manufacturing operations. Today’s announcement represents the next step in that strategy. It allows Jeep to enter two white-space segments that offer significant margin opportunities and will enable new electrified Jeep products, including at least four plug-in hybrid vehicles and the flexibility to produce fully battery-electric vehicles,” FCA CEO Mike Manley.

2019 Dodge SRT Miami Lakes

Why Muscle Cars Will Outlive the Average Sedan

2019 Dodge SRT Miami Lakes

Photo credit: Dodge

Everyone knows a muscle car when they see them, and especially when they hear them. There’s a loud sound that erupts from a muscle car when the driver puts the pedal to the metal, as they say. As the number of passenger cars is disappearing in record numbers, one thing is certain, that won’t be the case for muscle cars; at least not any time soon and at least not with Dodge. Dodge has stated that they will produce their long-standing muscle cars, the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger for another half-decade.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is responsible for the Dodge brand and they did announce the end for the Dodge Dart and the Chrysler 200 passenger car. Ford has done the same with their Ford Fusion and Ford Fiesta soon to be extinct. Across the automotive industry, there have been companies pulling back on once popular car entries like the Buick LaCrosse, which General Motors Co. has discontinued. Chevrolet also has revealed the end of the Impala as sales for these vehicles have dwindled.

Why the Muscle Car Will Survive

There’s no way to know for sure, but Dodge is committed to making their muscle cars stand out and stay relevant as they have for many decades. In fact, the Dodge Challenger rose up three percent in 2018 sales over 2017 numbers. That is good news for fans of the remarkably fast muscle car produced by Dodge. Dodge knows from the top down the fascination with their high-performance vehicles.

“What’s dying is the commoditized, four-door nothingburger, no-personality cars. Muscle cars have a really well-defined personality and positioning, ” said Tim Kuniskis, who ran the Dodge brand at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV from 2013 to early 2018, before taking over Jeep North America.

The Beginning of the Sedan’s End

What has helped FCA move from the sedan market is the average price for the muscle cars they sell. At around $36,000, it helps to offset the money made by sedan cars, as of 2016 Dodge truly began to move from the sedan market. While the profit from trucks and SUVs, which are growing in popularity, the muscle car market remains steady. Another reason that Dodge and FCA have had success with their muscle cars, the Dodge Challenger has not changed its platform model since 2011 and even longer for the Dodge Charger, not since 2008. Rather than having to entirely redesign their vehicles for newer more electric-based designs, they have been able to see profits for a long time without having to redesign the wheel.

Retail sales for large passenger cars is down 21 percent across the board, according to sales set in 2018, but that hasn’t affected the large muscle cars of Dodge. Thanks to their latest series of SRT (street and racing technology vehicles) like the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, which carry incredible horsepower and speed, they are beautiful, powerful and have gained the following of fans around the world for their exceptional high-performance and craftsmanship. The same can not be said about a Nissan Maxima, for example.

“There’s almost been a resurgence with some of the younger (people), even kids that aren’t of driving age that are interested in those products. Those kind of special additions and add-ons have really put some life into the vehicles,” said Jeff Schuster, senior vice president of forecasting for LMC Automotive.

Dodge Expands HIP Colors, Adds New Shakedown Package + New Stripes


Dodge likes their vehicles to stick out, and whether that means with bold color choices, unique designs or powerful engines is up to the buyer. Not only is the 2018 model year the most powerful lineup of Dodge vehicles, but it is also one of the most unique looking thanks to the new HIP colors, the new Shakedown Package and the new stripes and interior package available on the Dodge Durango.

New Shakedown Package

In 2016 Dodge debuted a new set of stripes on an old school 1971 Dodge Challenger at SEMA, and the new stripe design is available to buyers with the addition of the new Shakedown Package available on Challenger Shaker models (Challenger R/T Shaker, Challenger R/T Plus Shaker and Challenger 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker). The special stripe design is only available on Challenger Shaker models because the stripe design actually accentuates the shaker by outlining the shaker, but only on one side of the shaker. And not only are the lines unlike traditional racing lines because they don’t only go down the center of the vehicle, but they are actually different thicknesses, which is not typical for racing stripes. The Shakedown Package also includes an improved Alpine speaker system as well as white face gauges on the instrument cluster. The MSRP of the new Shakedown Package is $995, and the package is available with any exterior color.

Dodge Durango’s New Stripes + Carbon Fiber Interior

Before Dodge announced the new Shakedown Package, Dodge announced new stripe options and a new interior option. The new stripe options are available on the Dodge Durango R/T and Durango SRT and they are dual-center stripes and buyers have the option of five different colors. The new interior option, the SRT Interior Appearance Group, is Dodge-Charger-shakedown-package-miami-lakes-automallonly available on the Dodge Durango SRT and it adds carbon fiber to the vehicle’s instrument panel and door bezels as well as a premium-wrapped instrument panel, a Dinamica soft-touch headliner and accent paint on speaker trim rings. The starting MSRP on the SRT Interior Appearance Group is $2,495.

HIP Colors

As Dodge enthusiasts may have expected, Dodge brought back some High Intensity Paint (HIP) colors, (HIP colors are a select group of bright and bold colors that originated back in 1969) to the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger. The two new HIP colors, Plum Crazy and B5 Blue, join the other available HIP colors, TorRed and Go Mango, as well as several other bright hues. The two new HIP hues are available on all 2018 Charger models and on the Dodge Challenger, their availability is limited to the Dodge Challenger T/A, T/A Plus and T/A 392.
