Dodge Reserves Reveal For Final “Last Call” Muscle Car

Could this be the all-new Dodge Hornet hidden in the EV Day 2021 Presentation? (Stellantis).

Earlier this year, an intriguing report noted the potential of the final Dodge Challenger being assembled. Conceivably that’s exactly the reason Dodge is taking their moment and stretching out from their final reveal for their “Last Call” farewell tour. The first appearance for the long-awaiting crowd pleaser is on hold. The SEMA showcase in early November prove to be a little too early as some stockpile issues have delayed the operation. However, we believe this was decided on with the future in mind. Rather than have a last run with all the upcoming vehicles displayed back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-backs weeks as they have accomplished. Now, Dodge looks like they are holding this final Dodge entry to be shown off as a stand-alone ride at some point later in 2022 or possibly in 2023.

Enjoy the Fast and the Few

Suppose those who can’t get their hands on the new and finite entries, as few as 200 or 300 vehicles are being made for those unique final current generation Charger and Challenger vehicles. The definitive Last Call effort is anticipated to offer a tremendous 900 horsepower engine stock when using the suggested E85 fuel. No other details have been cast thus far. Keep in mind, Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis added a 1FAST29 license plate on the back of this conclusive Last Call muscle car. This special edition holds a candle to any new special edition released, including the King Daytona Charger.

 know the future of the brand involves promoting the electric vehicle mark with Dodge EV capabilities. So with all the perks that will come with these modern and currently new built vehicles, why would Dodge venture to deliver one last outlandish Dodge muscle car with the 909 horsepower? Well, to offer their loyal customers one last chance to enjoy the perks of V8 HEMI power thanks to its E85 gasoline required perks set to be offered for the 2023 Dodge Challenger. 

Breaking Down the E85 Fuel

This use of E85 fuel is known as “flex fuel” as its a mixture of both ethanol and gasoline, alas with a higher concentration of ethanol than the typical gasoline offered with regular fuel. The Dodge muscle car lineup requires this kind of juice to move as its thermal efficiency and fuel consumption require a more powerful burst. There’s exactly 69 more horsepower offered than its SRT Demon relative made nearly five years ago.    

When we think of the near present day of Dodge vehicles, we know the wait to drive a Dodge EV is close. For now, we are still all about how powerful they evolve to be in this decade. We don’t have to wait now for the most suitable for those who have held out for the end of the line with Dodge muscle. The threshold for street-legal vehicles offering this level of horsepower and torque was grown by Dodge and won’t get any more elevated from gasoline-powered muscle cars. This is because of combustion engines being replaced for more fuel efficient rides. The way the gas pedal pushes down and the feeling of owning a gasoline-powered Dodge muscle car is striving to change for the first time soon as Dodge readies up for its EV takeoff. Now is the time to buy Dodge, and we’re ready to help make any and all Dodge dreams a reality at Miami Lakes Automall.

Dodge Debuts 803 Horsepower “King Daytona” Charger

Dodge is always aiming to surprise and delight shoppers with tons of special edition packages arriving for both the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger muscle cars for the 2023 model year. 2022 is the last year before we will see production cars built on a new platform next year. The Dodge muscle class of next year will gain stunning upgrades that will include EV technology. Electric vehicles are poised to take over the current traditional production vehicle market.

Last Call Promotion Rewarding Shoppers With Tons of Choices

The fifth car in the set of the Dodge brand’s Last Call release of muscle car packages includes the Dodge Challenger Shakedown, Dodge Charger Super Bee, and “Swinger” muscle packages. The new reveal is the Dodge Charger King Daytona. The Charger King Daytona will be the most limited release as only 300 of these SRT muscle cars are going to be made. The nameplate is taken from drag racing lore that includes the most famous racing period in American history; the famed 1960s. For many decades, the 1969 Dodge Charger represented the pinnacle of performance. Back then, the West Coast drag racer Big Willie Robison had nicknamed his 1969 Dodge Charger the “King Daytona” and would encourage others to go from the street racing circuit towards the legal racing streets. The special edition built by Dodge in 2022 will push the limits of what can be offered as a legal production vehicle.

The Wicked Power of the King Dayona

The Dodge Charger King Daytona comes with a wicked 807-horsepower! Hitting over 800 horsepower much like the best of the best in terms of Dodge engineering features, this one holds a candle to the SRT Demon, SRT Hellcat Redeye and the various other SRT creations made by Dodge in recent years. Go Mango orange body color paint looks fresh with the same color highlighted with orange stitching throughout the interior. There is special interior badging on the instrumental panel, 20 by 11 inch Satin Carbon Warp Speed wheels. Orange six-piston Brembo brakes, Black Nappa / Alcantara “Daytona” seats, suede headliner, a Harmon Kardon sound system with power sunroof and a navigation package included. This is the fifth Last Call Dodge muscle car revealed with two more set to come out to the public. We will know later in September about the sixth one, but the 2022 SEMA Show will offer insight into the last and special Dodge Last Call vehicle.

Swinger Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge Announces Last Call “Swinger” Muscle Packages

Dodge reported they will add a new Charger and Challenger limited-edition cars with the “Swinger” nameplate. Largely like the new limited-time Shakedown and Super Bee Limited Editions revealed recently, the Swingers will be Scat Pack versions of the cars with special-edition perks and options. Dodge is showcasing the seven “Last Call” special editions that will be released ahead of its EV muscle car in 2024. We have also learned about the all-new Dodge Hornet plug-in hybrid that will be a hot item once production begins. 

New Special Edition Dodge Muscle Cars Keep Comin’!

We’re excited to witness yet another new special edition; the 2023 Swinger Challenger and Swinger Charger are the third and fourth special editions announced so far in 2022. This news is arriving off the recently disclosed Challenger Shakedown and Charger Super Bee special editions. The Swinger name was taken from the famed 1969 Dodge Dart. Both Swinger options are set to be sold in both the Widebody variant and with Dodge’s Scat Pack. Owners gain a 485-horsepower 6.4-Liter V8 powertrain. Dodge is making these special editions exclusively limited to only 2,000 of these vehicles; 1,000 per muscle nameplate and this is the amount expected for each special edition. These are unique rides that are expected to gain a lot of attention before Dodge moves into its EV movement starting next year.

Inside the Special Edition Packages

These new special editions come with these unique appearance packages that serve as a modern design based on the 1970s-era creation. They will arrive finished with badges, lush interior design including green-on-green exterior colors with gold accents and green stitching on the chairs, dash, center console, and steering wheel. Exterior paint options are F8 Green, Sublime Green, or White Knuckle, and a special “Gold School” badging will feature on the exterior to pair with a retro graphic on the rear fender. The Challenger Swinger will arrive with its sleek gold-painted Shaker intake hood and top-tier perks uncovered in the new 2023 Charger and Challenger muscle car alternatives. 

Drive the Last Call Vehicles While They Are Here

For those expecting to see the whole set of the Dodge brand’s Last Call special editions, the next two special editions are coming on September 14th and 21st, 2022. The last and final “Last Call” edition will be shown during the 2022 SEMA show in November, Stellantis added in a statement to the press. Dodge has not announced any outlet on the prices on any of the special editions as it stands today, but the company reported the pricing would be released via dealership allotment particulars along with when orders should be ready for the Scat Pack Swingers and the rest of the Last Call muscle cars. The new electric muscle car will be made as a production vehicle. We’re game for all the newest Dodge muscle cars!

2023 Hornet Miami Lakes Automall

All-New Dodge Hornet To Start Under $30K?

2023 Hornet Miami Lakes Automall

The Dodge Hornet nameplate first reached the public display at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show as a thoughtful and forward-thinking concept for a crossover. With a boxy design that was all the rage among buyers at the time, a future production version was never produced, until late last year in 2021. Today, new spy photographs reveal a new glimpse of one under development on the road in Detroit. The Hornet we see entering production looks nothing like the original concept from 2006. But, interesting to note how some parallels are noted to its Alfa Romeo Tonale Stellantis sibling. Allow us to breakdown what we have learned in recent months about the forthcoming Dodge Hornet crossover SUV product set to debut in less than a year. This summer might be ending, but before summer closes we’ll learn about an all-new Dodge collection nearing debut.

A Hornet Buzzes This Way

Dodge has placed a strong emphasis on producing a new ride on the preferred platform. Concerning the forthcoming Dodge Hornet, a similar fascia with inlets at each corner with a space in the center resembling a trapezoidal figure is expected. There’s a slim grille in the center of the vehicle’s front and a larger opening above it. The headlights are narrow and have tapered edges. Complete with its arching roofline and curved window on the rear hatchback that supports the Hornet crossover from looking too square. The descending part of the window on the rear door has an upward projection. The wheels on this vehicle appear to be the same ones that the Tonale sports. The spy images also reveal the Hornet carries a gorgeous spoiler on the roof, and a place for outlines on the sides of the window. On each side, there rest three rectangular tail lights.

Growing Powertrain Possibilities?

Regarding the Hornet’s engine options for the Hornet are allegedly the exact ones as what the Tonale delivers. In the United States, this is the trusted 1.3-Liter turbocharged four-cylinder with an electric motor powering the rear axle for a complete system output of 272 horsepower. A 15.5-kilowatt-hour battery pack provides more than 30 miles of a driving range. Should the Hornet also have the Tonale’s full motor lineup, then the Hornet will arrive with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder powertrain that supports 256 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. In Europe, the Alfa has two 1.5-liter mild-hybrid powertrains and a diesel option.

Another relation between the Hornet and the Tonale will be their production site. Both will arrive from the Pomigliano d’Arco Assembly Plant in Italy. Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis has authorized the small crossover to be assigned to arrive at some point later in 2022. Will this vehicle have some EV capabilities? We’ve covered this before, but learn even more after a visit to Miami Lakes Automall!

Hellcat Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge Durango Gaines SRT Hellcat Trim For 2023

Hellcat Miami Lakes Automall

The Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat comes back after a temporary exit from the Dodge collection. The truth is numerous new car shoppers liked and wanted to gain the latest model year for the Durango SRT Hellcat, solely to find out the 2021 model year was the final time this trim was available. Well, those skimming for the added horsepower and force can find their long-awaited return. Looks like this report might not be true after all. While the 2023 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat will be largely consistent with the same performance, customers will have more options to personalize their 2023 Durango thanks to the unrestricted Plus and Premium packages that deliver even more of what customers love. This is the largest goal for Dodge; improving brand appeal by way of offering more than ever.

For those desiring even more perks, they can welcome the optional Premium package that contains all the Plus features with added Red Seatbelts, a Leather-Wrapped Instrument Panel, Carbon Fiber Interior Accents, and a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. 

Bonuses Coming For the 2023 Dodge Durango SUV

Dodge is also giving two new colors for the 2023 model year, Triple-Nickel and Frostbite. Buyers can also opt for the optional SRT Black package from 2021, which included 20-Inch x 10-Inch Lights-Out Aluminum Wheels, Eclipse Black Exhaust Tip, Gray Metallic Badges, and Satin Black Dodge Tail Lamp Badge has now been modified for an upgraded new Blacktop package. The Blacktop package includes a set of 20-Inch x 10-Inch Black Noise Aluminum Wheels, Gloss Black Badges, a Satin Black Dodge Tail Lamp Badge, and Gloss Black Mirror Caps. Ordering for the 2023 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat will start in September 2022, Dodge has yet to officially declare the 2023 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat commencing price, but we’ll know before long. For those customers that are loyal to Dodge, they will have their opportunity to get this wicked fast SUV as a choice again quite soon. There is also the all-new 2023 Dodge Hornet crossover that is ready to debut for customers later in 2023.

Now More Than Ever Is the Time To Drive Dodge

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody

The last time we told our readers to buy Dodge, we really meant that. As time has shown, this era of Dodge vehicles was second-to-none, but the remnants of that time from 2017-2020 still lingers a few years down the road with the current line of 2022 Dodge muscle options. Today, as we await the arrival of the Dodge muscle electric vehicle future due to debut at the end of summer, we know those final years of combustion gas powered Dodge muscle are running out. For those who really want to experience the remarkable power, pure adrenaline of heart racing speed and unmatched handling, speak to us about the process of driving a Dodge car today.

Hornet Nears Arrival

We know the future of Dodge involves the element of electric engineering, set to offer the promise of moving at high speeds without the decades of use given by traditional powertrains. We are ready to see them, but we don’t know them just yet. In fact, the name is not even known for what to expect for the first true muscle car of the 2020’s from Dodge. We have learned the Dodge Hornet nameplate is back, as an SUV of the electric variety. However, the Challenger and Charger nameplates have not been formally linked to a Dodge EV title anywhere. Will Dodge remain true to its past or offer a new line-up that differs from their longstanding heritage built over decades of production in both the Charger and Challenger models.

We’re Keeping SRT Alive

While some think the SRT (Street Racing Technology) found in the Hellcat and Hellcat Widebody will be altered or removed, we can say that is unlikely. As the brand grows, they are keen on keeping their massive fan base happy and appeased with greater perks and new technology, but not removing all aspects of what has made Dodge stand out. This could include even keeping some elements of traditional combustion being used but perhaps in a different way than ever used before. As the market stands today, we see the rival Ford Mustang is losing in total sales compared to the Dodge muscle that includes the Challenger and Charger. 

Something Exciting Comes Your Way 

Get ready to make heads turn with our strong muscle line-up of new Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger models. Our sales staff is ready to help with any leasing, buying or trade-in options. At Miami Lakes Automall, we’re more than excited to help our customers, we’re thrilled. Looking for a new option to buy or lease?

Dodge Ramping Up Production For 909 Horsepower Muscle Car

Widebody Miami Lakes Automall

Is it too late for Dodge to build and offer a stunning new and remarkable Dodge muscle car with wild horsepower abilities? Nope! As we were correct on our reporting, Dodge is about to declare their official strategies to offer consumers the most horsepower they’ve ever been able to drive off with from a stock, production muscle car. The days of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Dodge Demon and the follow-up with the 2019-2022 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye were excellent options, but we know the future of the brand involves promoting the electric vehicle mark with Dodge EV capabilities. So with all the perks that will come with these modern and currently new built vehicles, why would Dodge venture to deliver one last outlandish Dodge muscle car with the 909 horsepower? Well, to offer their loyal customers one last chance to enjoy the perks of V8 HEMI power thanks to its E85 gasoline required perks set to be offered for the 2023 Dodge Challenger. 

Breaking Down the E85 Fuel

This use of E85 fuel is known as “flex fuel” as its a mixture of both ethanol and gasoline, alas with a higher concentration of ethanol than the typical gasoline offered with regular fuel. The Dodge muscle car lineup requires this kind of juice to move as its thermal efficiency and fuel consumption require a more powerful burst. There’s exactly 69 more horsepower offered than its SRT Demon relative made nearly five years ago.    

When we imagine the future of Dodge vehicles, we await to see how powerful they evolve to be in this decade. We don’t have to linger any longer; this is the primetime most suitable for those who have held out. The threshold for street-legal vehicles offering this level of horsepower and torque was grown by Dodge and won’t get any more elevated from gasoline-powered muscle cars. This is due to combustion engines being removed for more fuel efficient rides. The way the gas pedal pushes down and the feeling of driving a gasoline-powered Dodge muscle car is striving to change for the first time soon as Dodge readies up for its EV takeoff. Now is the time to buy Dodge, and we’re proud to help make any and all Dodge dreams a reality at Miami Lakes Automall. Even if today is not the right time, pass by to see what we have to offer as more unexpected news for the Dodge brand is coming out next month.

More Thrilling Dodge Rides Will Be Revealed In August

The hype is growing for the Dodge fan base and worldwide community, as Dodge announced their intent to debut three new EVs during the Dodge Roadkill Nights event taking place in early August 2022. We look forward to ensuring a remarkable customer experience that will remain on the forefront of the mind when thinking about any vehicle we provide. On August 15th-17th, 2022, a brand new vehicle will be shown each day. This will be the first live appearance of the next-generation Dodge muscle car. Dodge will also show a gateway muscle product on the second day and end the event on August 17th, 2022 showing a new vehicle concept that aims to highlight the future muscle products coming down the pike.

The Only 1969 Dodge Charger F8 Green Ever Built Sold For $1.3 Million

This past week news broke about a $1.3 million sale of the famed 1969 Dodge Charger sold to a private individual. Few brands can create a vehicle that keeps customers purchasing the same vehicle over and over again; unless that vehicle is an aberration. One such vehicle is the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona F8 Green and that vehicle just sold for a whopping $1.3 million. This was the most distinguished one of its kind to have a solid army green interior and exterior and bested the previous highest sale of any Dodge muscle car by $90,000 according to Mecum Auctions. Even now, over fifty years later, we have seen the memorable muscle car remain a hot item that is highly sought after. The framework of legendary building vehicles started years ago and persists to function as the Dodge legacy that shoppers welcome. After all, Dodge has won awards thanks to its stunning initial quality and owners treasuring their experience with their vehicle, especially early on and as we’ve seen this continues for decades onward. If buyers today love the engines and technology of been then, envision what drivers will pay for the current generation of vehicles before EVs take over the landscape of muscle and sporting cars and this will include the Dodge brand as we know all too well about.

Reshaping the Dodge Brand In 2022

The Dodge name has worked its way into the hearts of many. The truth remains, customers are totally happy with the Dodge Charger muscle car. There’s plenty of evidence to showcase this including the vehicles and their ability to perform. As far as a brand identity, Dodge has theirs. Regarding how this matters in the industry, Dodge brand CEO Tim Kuniskis recently spoke to Automotive News.

“There’s over 40 brands in the mainstream market. There’s over 300 nameplates. There’s massive overlap. So if you don’t have an identity … you’re just going to keep recycling the same people that are within the brand and like the brand, and you’re never, ever, ever going to grow, and you’re never going to be able to change the positioning of the brand,” – Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis

Strike It Big With Dodge Muscle

Today, we deliver the Dodge Charger with an abundance of trims including the SRT (Street Racing Technology) collection; like the outstanding SRT Hellcat Redeye. The new Dodge muscle representation has worked its way into the hearts of so many. The truth remains, that customers are totally happy with the Dodge Charger muscle car. We’re looking forward to helping our customers experience the joy of driving away in a new Dodge vehicle. Avoid the hassle of dealing with a vehicle that doesn’t provide the exhilaration and fun that is delivered with a Dodge muscle car.

Helljet Miami Lakes Automall

Remarkable 1,300 Horsepower Dodge Charger

The Dodge brand has been in the news making waves and all sorts of noise to a positive response with its EV muscle car set to debut in less than two years. We can be assured the Dodge brand is set to offer a slew of outstanding vehicles that are electrified and awesome, but for now, the latest news is focused on what we have today like the 1,000 horsepower engine found in a modified 1970 Dodge Charger or the 1,400 horsepower Dodge SRT Demon made a few years back. We’ve shown off some of the most impressive tuneups that Dodge owners have done to modify and upgrade the stock versions of their Dodge muscle cars. A recent example has come out with Westen Champlin’s new creation where the uniquely modified Dodge Charger has been revealed on their YouTube channel. Built out of passion and using premium Mopar parts to improve the already powerful Dodge muscle sedan, the YouTuber has crafted quite the outlandish Dodge muscle car build. Westen chose to coax a Dodge Charger Hellcat with nearly double the force Dodge supplies customers with, that’s what took this car to an upper echelon.

Dodge Charger Now and Then

Today, the seventh-generation Dodge Charger has been around since 2011 and will be phased out when the newest generation arrives sometime after next year. There was a refresh back in 2015, the same model year as the one this team changed up. Nowadays, the 2022 Dodge Charger starts from $33,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee) with a V6 engine, from $40,000 MSRP customers can acquire the 5.7-Liter V8 R/T version but at $75,000 MSRP the Hellcat sedan is available. Dubbed the HellJet, this outlandish invention supports a uniquely styled khaki green matt paint, a HellJet logo, labeled 777 on the sides, and jet-fighter teeth behind the front wheels. Those wheels are located in black, but the standout feature would have to be the bullhorns up front, though that’s still not all. 

Perks of Something Special and Fierce

Westen does a burnout inside an active garage with exotic cars and has the goods revealed under the hood to reveal a tremendous new powertrain. The HellJet harbors the most recent supercharged 6.2-Liter Hellcat V8 that has also been twin-turbocharged with a Hellion turbo kit for a total of 1300 total horsepower, roughly 583 more horsepower than granted on the standard Dodge Charger Hellcat. They also moved a retired Dodge police vehicle, pushed up the engine output from 370 horsepower from the mid-tier 5.7-Liter V8 engine to a brand new Hellcat engine that delivers 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.The entire build was all done from scratch, each part by part and crafted with time and some love. Owning a vehicle comes with the freedom to drive and enjoy the experience, but don’t put up with nagging noises, on-going engine troubles, or neglecting to tune up and prepare a vehicle for safer travel. We do more than just oil and tire changes at Miami Lakes Automall!

A New Crossover Is Taking the Dodge Hornet Name

Photo Credit: Stellantis

The famed Dodge Hornet we reported about in earlier posts has come to light with new elements. The Alfa Romeo brand, a part of the group of brands from Stellantis, is going to see one of their vehicles function as the base for the vehicle. The Hornet nameplate, previously found on a 2006 Dodge mid-size SUV concept for a new crossover SUV, was created. The Alfa Romeo Tonale SUV, the crossover platform chosen for this Hornet ride, has had some photos shown from the manufacturer. We have witnessed the Alfa Romeo Tonale platform successfully carried over to the Dodge Hornet with changes. A rebadged creation is what we see for this new Dodge crossover that is foreseen to deliver 256 horsepower from a 2.0-Liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This news shines a light on the all-new Dodge vehicle we learned was first demonstrated to be made about back in 2020. The production value for a new Dodge crossover would be huge. 

“I’m super excited about the future of electric because I think it’s what’s going to allow us to not fall off the cliff. Without that technology, without electrification. This is 1972 right now, this thing is going to end.” said Tim Kuniskis, CEO of Dodge.

More About the Stunning 2023 Dodge Hornet 

When taking a deep look into the interior of the crossover, we have seen the modifications that include a similar shape from the previous look, but we noticed some changes. The highlights are horizontal air vents, an infotainment touchscreen that looks like the Tonale, with a similar button layout. The 2006 Hornet concept is all but forgotten when comparing them both inside and out. Of course, even the Dodge CEO said a new PHEV Dodge option would arrive by 2024. We are not sure if this is the vehicle they might use, but Dodge is listed on this vehicle.

A Dodge brand name can be noticed on the red brake caliper, but the automaker has made sure to blur the lines that make the images of the vehicle a mystery. The dramatic change to the design is two new nostrils cut into the front hood with a look that draws quite a bit of attention. According to Mopar Insider, the report has said the expected production of the Dodge Hornet is set to see a production run that starts in Italy for the 2023 model year. The Dodge and Alfa Romeo brands are both adding EVs to their line-up and this crossover might be the right contender to raise the bar high with its debut. This crossover hybrid would be an instantaneous magnet for customers looking for a new vehicle. We know Dodge continues to develop changes to their vehicles, as we expect the Hornet to be no different, but it will have massive strength and world-class engineering.
