Buyers Chances of Driving the Current Lineup Is Ending

SRT Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge has accomplished their goal to ensure drivers get the most out of their vehicles, delivering top-notch speed equipped for street-legal vehicles, supplying game changing handling, and the most satisfying appearance of any muscle a car buyer could hope to drive. So, for new car shoppers or those ready to finally upgrade their existing ride for something way more compelling, we offer our current and award-winning 2022 model year line-up. For our readers and Dodge lovers, this remarkable catalog has made Dodge witness a 22% growth from this past third-quarter compared to the same time in 2021.

Improving the Dodge Line-up Comes Next

We’re hoping to inform as many car shoppers as possible that is the final time this generation and current collection will be vended. The whole lineup is transforming and we won’t know precisely all the fine particulars regarding the Dodge brand’s EV future until more information is shown. For now, let us offer our reasonable pricing for the current 2022 Dodge Charger, starting at $32,645 MSRP (Plus destination fee) and the 2022 Dodge Challenger that begins at a wickedly small cost of $30,940 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The 2023 model year Dodge vehicles are expected to reach dealerships like ours in the forthcoming weeks and in few cases a few months ahead. Expect to see the new 2023 Dodge Durango arrive with the SRT Hellcat trim for the first time after the SRT Hellcat was removed last model year. 

The Dodge brand has created a new series known as the “Last Call” for buyers to get their supporters invigorated into riding the new 2023 Dodge Charger and 2023 Dodge Challenger special editions coming out in a finite assortment. So far, we’ve discovered about six special edition rides open for customers in a limited supply, as only 200 or 300 vehicles were made depending on the specific Dodge muscle car. Dodge has gained the Kelley Blue Book’s Best Car Styling Brand Image award for the fourth year in a row and we can see this trend going on for a full half-decade considering this line-up for the 2023 model year looks out-of-hand exciting. 

Highlights of the 2023 Model Year

Drivers can test the outstanding SRT (Street Racing Technology) catalog that fetches back the Dodge Durango SRT large-size SUV with its Hellcat trim offering, the impressive SRT muscle cars that highlights the best of this model year, and more with our help.

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

Photo credit: Dodge

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.

FCA To Merge With Renault In Massive Deal

Renault FCA Miami Lakes Automall

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) was searching for another company to make a splash in the automotive industry with a large scale merger. They finally found the right company to make a cannonball of a splash with the new agreement with Renault. FCA will be securing in their words a “transformative merger” with the French automotive company, Renault, to merge effective May 2019. What does this mean for the automotive industry? This new company, yet to be named, will represent that 3rd biggest global original equipment manufacturer (OEM).

This merge also entails this new company will become the 4th biggest automotive company in North America and 2nd in Europe. The organizations have agreed in principle to distribute their public shareholders equally. This new company will display full market coverage of vehicles covering a wide range of “mainstream to luxurious” options for consumers to enjoy. Let’s break down a little more about what to expect going forward for FCA.

A Landmark Deal

The first statement listing the intentions of both brands came out to the public in a statement by FCA. FCA made the first move when they issued a non-binding letter to the Board of Groupe Renault, which was approved. Both companies remain poised to grow their sales and remain ahead of the many oppositions with this deal. FCA stated their five-year-plan back in 2018 to become more of a global force for both electrification and autonomous driving. This deal proves they were serious as Renault is well known for their work in making electrification one of their hallmarks. FCA stated their desire to “identify” products and places where they would best be served to collude the newest and most advanced technologies. Adding to the list of wants, FCA also satisfies their aim to grow globally by going with “bold decisions to capture at scale the opportunities created by the transformation of the auto industry”, FCA addressed in their latest report to the press and shareholders.

Upcoming Agenda Going Forward For FCA

Both Renault and FCA know they have their work cut out for them since large scale mergers are something both companies are familiar with. This is actually going to raise their value and total sales net worth with the figure set to be a $35 billion deal. Their joined business would sell more than 8.7 million vehicles yearly, including innovative muscle cars, SUVs, pickups, minivans as well as light commercial vehicles.

“Our proposed merger with Renault will create the potential to build a global partnership with all three of these great companies during this period of unprecedented transformation in our industry.” -John Elkann, Chairman of FCA.

What To Expect Next

The intention is to further expand FCA’s general interest for consumers in a global setting, where they have yet to really become a staple. FCA confirmed neither company would be able to gain a more significant role in the global market as a company alone. FCA, known for their Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, and Ram brands among others is thrilled to have this deal finished. This is in large part due to Renault making strides with zero-emissions electronic vehicles and their global outreach. This merger is going to add quite a bit of value for each company as they become one of the most potent automotive companies; its a win-win for consumers as well.

More Good News

Both brands say they will not lose any productive plants that are currently operating. FCA is excited to expand its brands, as both companies will work out the final details over the coming months. Anticipate more stories to come out of this landmark deal in 2019 and beyond. For anyone a fan of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and their automotive brands, they will be in for a pleasant surprise in the near future. Want to see the latest FCA products with our help?

Traffic and bad drivers are assured no matter what when driving in South Florida, but distracted driving is something that FCA has helped to curb with their innovation. Let’s get into why FCA has kept improving their UConnect system and what buyers can expect when they make a purchase with a modern UConnect system.

Why UConnect?

Officially adopted by Chrysler, FIAT, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram vehicles and has continually updated features to help assure drivers and passengers have an excellent experience every time they drive any FCA brand vehicle.

Turning a vehicle into a superior sounding club environment is possible thanks to FCA’s partnerships to include these brands.

UConnect’s Connectivity Is Second to None

What helps separate UConnect from other infotainment systems is the constant need to improve. Recent years have seen the addition of Apple Carplay and Android Auto. These systems allow users to use their smartphone to perform phone calls, read and transmit text messages, listen to music all while letting the driver focus on the road ahead. In a perfect world, every driver could multitask and keep their eyes on the road and have UConnect make it that much easier.

SiriusXM Guardian provides drivers with a way to remain aware of where their vehicle is with a few taps on their smartphone. Need help finding your parked FCA vehicle?

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.

Miami Lakes Auto Next Generation Dodge Viper Challenger

Next Generation Dodge Challenger, Viper, and Chevrolet Corvette

Miami Lakes Auto Next Generation Dodge Viper Challenger

Back in 2017 when the Dodge brand released the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, it was definitely a pinnacle of achievement for a factory-manufactured vehicle. Outfitted with a a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V8 engine modified with over 90 new parts, the engine had the ability to generate up to 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque with a little 100+ high octane fuel. Since then, many wondered what was next for Dodge. At the same time, Chevrolet and other brands kept claiming they could beat the Dodge SRT Demon. For every brand that swats at the “fastest car title,” Dodge swats back.

2019 Dodge Challenger

For those who thought the Demon was it for the Dodge Challenger, don’t worry just yet. A teaser for the 2019 Dodge Challenger was released in May 2018, with more details being revealed in the summer. The teaser showed us a new design for the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat that gives the muscle car a new retro dual-snorkel hood scoop inspired by classic Mopar designs to pay tribute to its heritage way back when the Dodge Challenger first began. The first-generation Dodge Challenger featured the Dodge Challenger Trans Am, or T/A for short, and we think the revival of the T/A for recent Dodge Challenger model years may be linked to bringing back the retro look for the new 2019 Dodge Challenger.

The new hood scoop will also be functional, said to feed air into the supercharger lurking underneath. More air means more power, and of course bigger competition. Enter the next-gen Chevrolet Corvette.

Past versions of Uconnect one may see include Uconnect 5.0 and Uconnect 8.4, and it is actually the same version of Uconnect (possibly with additional functions) on a different screen size, i.e. five inches or 8.4 inches.

“Uconnect is the feature-packed navigation, entertainment, and communication system that lets drivers live their lives, connected. The award-winning system takes a bunch of great features and drops them into an elegant and customizable 8.4-inch touchscreen.” –
