Dodge Offers High Octane Speed and Satisfaction

Dodge has been trusted by many new owners to provide a remarkable driving experience; as of 2021, Dodge has now been named the most appealing brand, tied with Porsche. Examine the perks that come from the muscle bound brand and the first thought is the immense power from the massive V8 engines like the ones found in the Challenger and Charger models. Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, accepted the phenomenal rating of 882 based on the 1,000-point scale. This is the second year in a row that they earned this rating based on the APEAL study from J.D. Power. The Dodge brand was ranked highest with fellow Stellantis brand, Ram, earning the second-highest point total. Dodge earned these impressive J.D. Power marks after 110,827 owners of brand new 2021 model year vehicles were surveyed after 90 days of ownership. 

How Dodge Has Gained Such Flair

Looking deeper into the 2021 J.D. Power study, the data unveils how owners reflect and react to their new purchases and note how they feel regarding their vehicle. Dodge is known for providing a unique experience for drivers that includes immense power and strength coupled with precise handling. The new 2021 Charger Scat Pack Widebody is a famous example extending extraordinary value and significant thunder to make owners relish the purr and roar of this SRT car. Street Racing Technology (SRT) might become a thing of the past with the launch of the new generation Challenger and Charger trims coming out when the next-generation models appear in fewer than two years. 

“One of the biggest factors driving the industry’s improvement this year is the introduction of several highly appealing new models. The APEAL Study measures owners’ emotional attachment to their new vehicle, and the product launches that took place this model year have done a really good job. Some are all-new and some are redesigns, but the new launches demonstrate that automakers are getting even better at hitting buyers’ emotional triggers,” David Amodeo, director of global automotive at J.D. Power, said in the release.

Now Is the Best Time To Experience the 2021 Dodge Line-up

This is a reminder to all customers looking to grip the current trend of heart-racing speeds through gasoline powertrains and pitch-perfect engines that hold nothing back for owners. Notwithstanding, we are sure the Dodge EV collection will nevertheless offer impressive muscle, as Dodge CEO has declared on various occasions. We’re just sure the days of the electric muscle will grab the attention of many shoppers, but early on they might not be too enthusiastic about the latest products Dodge is working on.

Dodge Showing Off More Details Involving Electric Vehicle Plans

With the future of the Dodge brand moving towards electric vehicles, we have a tight window of time before the fastest Dodge options may actually be electrified! While we are excited for the changes, we are also tempted to tell our customers to snag up the Dodge collection as it currently exists. The high-octane Dodge muscle cars like the Dodge Charger and Challenger are exceptional beasts with their available V8 powertrains. The new muscle cars that are going to be made by 2024 will include the entirely electric Dodge vehicle. There are reports that the EV might carry the “Fratzog” logo for all electric vehicles. The Fratzog is a made up word by a designer first used in 1962 through 1976 by the brand. We saw the Dodge brand bring this logo back when unveiling the 2021 EV Day. The concept vehicle has drawn a large amount of interest from fans. One fan is actually the CEO of Dodge, Tim Kuniskis.

“It damn near looks like something that Doc Brown would have done. It looks very futuristic and electrified, and it’s our history, which is what we do,” said Tim Kuniskis. Referring to Doc Brown, the well-known fictional character from Back to the Future. 

What Dodge Vehicle Will Gain the EV Treatment First?

We have only seen teasers of what this vehicle will be as well as no clue what the nameplate that will carry this upcoming, first-ever Dodge EV. Perhaps the Dodge Challenger will gain the EV, but we can’t say for certain. Keep in mind that the Challenger body has remained the same since the brand brought the vehicle back in 2008; this is the same for the Charger since 2006. Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, has invested upwards of $35.5 billion through 2035 for electric vehicles, which will include plug-in and hybrid vehicles. A plug-in hybrid is due out next year, so we are about a year from seeing this Dodge vehicle hit stores.Dodge understandably won’t just become an EV company solely or have their branding focus solely on EVs.

“We don’t want them to look radically different because we want you all to be part of the same thing. So, we said, ‘OK,’ if you have electrification in your car, we don’t want you to be screaming, ’I have electrification,” Kuniskis said, referring to Dodge’s “Brotherhood of Muscle” community.

Dodge Prepares To Build Multiple Electric Vehicles And More Plans Revealed

There is a feeling within the Dodge community that the V8 engines of today are going to skyrocket in value. The most obvious reason is Dodge is going out of the gasoline-focused V8 powertrains business and headed to an electric future. There have been some new reports that though the electrification plans are new, they are going full force into the commitment towards building the brand with EV intentions for each vehicle. The report names Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, as the force behind turning Dodge into the premiere brand among its many options. 

Six All-Electric Vehicles Are Being Made

Dodge is rumored to have as many as “six all-electric vehicles currently in the styling studio in Auburn Hills, Michigan.” There is also news that “at least one, but probably several plug-in hybrids” are slated to be created. Whether this is concept vehicles or the turning of a new leaf for the Dodge brand, the report from The Detroit Bureau has Dodge making big changes. While this news is nothing new, we now have some more light shed on what is expected to change for the brand. The days of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon or even the follow up vehicles in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye or Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock, we can expect changes to start showing by next year. Dodge will have no problem doing all the hard work towards its electric future alone. According to another report, the Dodge brand has passed on getting any assistance from Tesla.

The Final Days of Purely Gasoline Driven Muscle?

The 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger will offer a variant of change as the new-generation is expected to show. The other brands under the guidance of Stellantis have already pushed out the latest plug-in hybrid or fully electric vehicles in the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel and Jeep Wrangler 4xe trim. The best EVs in the world could one day arrive in the form of the greatest muscle cars available; all included from the Dodge brand! Keep in mind that Stellantis has already decided to move the Dodge brand into a new plan that was revealed earlier this month when plans were described, “Between 2025 and 2030, our product range will gradually become purely electric. This will be a radical change,” Stellantis CEO Oilvier Francois. The future is rapidly approaching and our goal is to remain as prepared as we are today at providing our customers with the newest Dodge vehicles.

Dodge Hornet Returning To the Fold?

Friday, June 11th, 2021
Hornet Miami Lakes Automall

Hornet Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge is revitalizing an older nameplate in the Dodge Hornet. This vehicle will join the currently short list of Dodge vehicles. The Dodge brand arrived with a Dodge Hornet concept that was shown off in 2006, but it never debuted. 2006 was the same year the Dodge Charger was reintroduced to the world. The 2006 Hornet concept was produced with hopes to see the prototype turn into a production vehicle in 2008 with the Challenger. Dodge at that time was about to start with a big push in the European markets and aspired to thrust the Hornet by 2010. The platform of the Hornet would end up being the same one applied to the Alfa Romeo Giulietta. This meant the Dodge sedan would offer this “C-Evo” platform and notwithstanding the Hornet name being trademarked in 2011, they opted to name the vehicle the Dodge Dart instead. The Dodge Dart is no longer offered by Dodge, but they still produce two cars and the popular SUV, the Dodge Durango, alongside the famed Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger muscle cars.

Added Production Choices Are Being Revealed

The COVID-19 outbreak slowed the production for Dodge for three months. This was something that hindered the Dodge Hornet, as Alfa Romeo’s new CEO, previously of Peugeot, new expectations of enhanced performance from the Tonale’s PHEV drivetrain. As of April, Automotive News reports, Stellantis aimed to commence Tonale production in March 2022 and start sales on June 4 of 2022. This would indicate that the Dodge Hornet’s arrival could be in around the same time frame. In a story written by Passione Auto Italiane, the most current Dodge vehicles are expected to be produced alongside the forthcoming Alfa Romeo Tonale at the Pomigliano D’Arco plant in Italy. We are always looking ahead to what Dodge will provide customers next, but the new era of Dodge vehicles is coming sooner than later; starting with the Dodge Hornet we hope.

Likelihood of the Dodge Hornet

The ongoing rumor for the 2022 Dodge Hornet also insists that the Hornet will be produced on the sub-Stelvio crossover. As such, it will be using the same turbo 2.0-Liter GME engine. While the news didn’t discuss anything about a hybrid variant of the Dodge crossover, we can presume so considering the Alfa Romeo Tonale will produce a PHEV version, but this is the notion that affected its schedule. There are remarkable expectations that Dodge might even go the route its fellow Stellantis brand, Jeep, is headed with a fully electric vehicle approaching. Ultimately, we can expect that to happen, but currently, the current age of Dodge vehicles is nevertheless here for now. When looking at the 2021 model year Dodge muscle cars, and we are still grateful for the heart-racing power and enjoyment brought to us by the Dodge brand.

Dodge Ushering In A New Era For Buyers

Thursday, May 27th, 2021

Promising clues are being reported about the next steps of the Dodge brand. Dodge has determined to put a check on the V8 era that has advanced since Dodge returned the Dodge Charger muscle car for customers in 2006. During the last fifteen years, we’ve observed the increase of some of the most dominant muscle cars in mass production. The 2021 Dodge Charger and 2021 Dodge Challenger are both striking examples of where the brand currently stands, but what can we expect going ahead as the 2020s are already flying by? Early sales in 2021 saw Dodge move vehicles at a higher rate for the Dodge Durango, Charger, and Challenger models. This is a promising display that will empower more buyers to join the Dodge brand. So who is joining Dodge lately?

Dodge Growing With Younger Generation

From sales figures, an apparent trend has taken place for several years. Dodge has led the way with sales for the younger buyers. The Dodge brand knows where the future is headed, as the path towards electric vehicles (EVs) is the goal. Dodge is also aware that compared to rivals, they have the youngest buyers compared to other manufacturers like Chevrolet or Ford. Dodge first noted this a couple of years ago but has followed up with more evidence that they sell their vehicles to “the youngest demographic in the industry” according to Dodge. 

The car-buying demographic that presents most of Dodge’s business is diverse including the second-highest quantity of Asian, African Americans, and Latin buyers according to the Head of the Dodge Brand Sales Operations, Matt McAlear. The broad variety of V6 and V8 powertrains included in Dodge vehicles has pushed sales for years and extends to a new crop of buyers. However, the scope of these vehicles might alter with the renewed focus of Stellantis (parent company of Dodge) as they look to offer more fuel-efficient vehicles. 

2021 Has Proved Some Impressive Success

Dodge has seen an increase in sales that should exceed pre-pandemic numbers set in 2019. Dodge had begun to bring the focus away from creating 800 horsepower vehicles like the Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. However, there was a promise to continue the SRT (Street Racing Technology) vehicles for the near future. While these are the most impressive vehicles for any owner to want, they aren’t meeting the goal of what the future holds for the Dodge brand and its EV intentions.

“There hasn’t been a date drawn in the sand saying you’ll no longer be able to buy an iron block Hemi anymore, but everybody knows it’s coming and they want to enjoy [the engine] while they can. The replacements are going to be so much more exciting,” stated Matt McAlear, Dodge’s head of sales operations.

Dodge Pushes Street Racing Technology To New Heights

Friday, May 21st, 2021
SRT Miami Lakes Automall

SRT Miami Lakes Automall

Most recently, regarding the Dodge brand, there were questions raised about whether Dodge will still deliver the fastest vehicles made in mass production anywhere in the world. Dodge settled on keeping the promise to offer these impressive vehicles for the present, future, and beyond. Like the rest of the competition, Dodge is ready to defend its high-octane, high-performance. The strongest and fastest Dodge muscle cars aren’t only quick for Dodge, they are the quickest among all mass-production sedans in the entire world. Recognition should be given to Dodge’s engine power created by the monstrous 6.2-Liter HEMI high-output V8 powertrain. The engine reaches 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. When we think of Dodge vehicles today, we think of the most agile and most robust options known as SRT vehicles. Allow us to present our readers a concise history of the SRT and what buyers will notice if they go for one this summer. 

Inside the Perks of SRT Vehicles

We look at each SRT “Street Racing Technology” vehicle differently, but they all hold the main purpose of the Dodge brand. For those that want an extraordinary and heart-racing reality when behind the wheel should opt for any of the newest Dodge SRT models. Originally, the SRT vehicles started as the Team Viper members of the Dodge Viper were venturing to create a new platform for vehicles. Team Viper worked hand and hand with the Plymouth Prowler. Dodge is still focused on bettering their products by creating more horsepower and EV possibilities.

Drivers looking for a remarkable vehicle should look no further than what Dodge has understood after years of hard work with its 2021 model year collection. The SRT society includes the famed 2021 Dodge Challenger coupe muscle car, 2021 Dodge Charger sedan muscle car, and the 2021 Dodge Durango SUV. The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, which is set above the Hellcat Widebody and is the prized option for the Charger lineup, starting at $80,090 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye begins at $72,295 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The entry point for the Dodge Challenger SRT is the Hellcat that begins at a low $59,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee). 

What Kind of Performance Can Owners Expect?

The 2021 Dodge Challenger Hellcat comes with an impressive array of options and a standard engine experience that rewards drivers with a 0-60 mph time of just 3.7 seconds. Remarkably, the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat hits a 0 to 60 mph time in a mere 3.5 seconds!

Gold Rush Is Now An Option For the Dodge Charger

Good news for Dodge muscle car fans that feel like the 2021 Dodge Charger was left out of some of the perks the Challenger received. The 2021 Charger is set to receive a new paint color previously and exclusively available for the 50th Anniversary Edition Dodge Challenger. Since its debut in June 2020, but the best part is now the bold look can be had with every 2021 Charger. That’s right; the Dodge Challenger will grant its body color to the Charger for every trim for its 2021 model year. 

Enjoy the Gold Rush Color 

The four-door 2021 Dodge Charger will offer the Gold Rush color for each trim including the Charger R/T, Scat Pack, Scat Pack Widebody, SRT Hellcat, and Hellcat Redeye are all golden options. The Gold Rush color across includes its Satin Black hand-painted roof, hood, and decklid. While the Challenger received the spotlight last year, Dodge knew the brand had to offer the same treatment to its Charger and extend the favor over to fans. Now readers can encounter a wide variety of colors that includes Frostbite, Hellraisin, Go Mango, Sinamon Stick, TorRed, and F8 Green. Dodge has noted the beloved Gold Rush become a staple amount Dodge Challenger fans and wanted to offer this color in the mix among these exceptional options.

“The customer response to the Dodge Challenger Gold Rush exceeded our expectations. We’re sticking to that successful Dodge formula of proliferating our most popular options across the lineup and giving Charger customers, who want the Gold Rush color, the option to have it on their four-door muscle car,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand Chief Executive Officer – Stellantis.

A Quick Rebound For the Muscle Sedan

The Dodge Charger enjoyed a wonderful sales year, notwithstanding the pandemic. Keep in mind, the total vehicles moved in January and February 2021 exceeded the total from the same time in 2020 and 2019. The rush at the end of the year was impressive as well as the Charger was sold 9,174 times in merely December 2020 alone. That total was higher than any year dating back to 2014 for the popular Dodge muscle car. Dodge has not yet released the quarterly report for the start of 2021, but if there’s any evidence of what to anticipate with the addition of stimulus money being added into many customers bank accounts, plus the incentives to take home a new vehicle, the Dodge brand might be gaining lots of attention paid to its popular muscle sedan. 

Interested in checking out how a Dodge Charger looks and feels? A test-drive is all some customers need to have to understand the intensity and fun of a Dodge muscle car. Rush over to Miami Lakes Automall, where we are ready to show off our vehicles and welcome everyone to see them live in person or over the web as we cater to our customers everywhere!

Dodge Remains Committed To SRT Brand For the Future

Friday, March 12th, 2021
2022 Miami Lakes Automall

2022 Miami Lakes Automall

It’s that time of year when we want to know what will come next for the prized Dodge muscle car, the Dodge Challenger. Set to offer its 2022 model year at some point this summer, we’ve caught wind of the initial reports that the future of the most influential V8 engines is likely to decrease in support of electric vehicles. Of course, Dodge won’t purposely alter its brand from what buyers love. In truth, the muscle car will live on, but with all the undertaking Stellantis has placed on changing its brand, we are questioning where Dodge heads next. Particularly with its Street Racing Technology (SRT) brand, what will it turn into? FCA and PSA Groupe combined forces to produce Stellantis, the world’s fourth-largest automotive company, and among the massive changes comes in the way they will produce new vehicles. While Stellantis has put a spotlight on the brand as they remain committed to its SRT brand, it might not all be the news some wanted to hear. (It’s not all bad, though)

What Will Dodge Think of Next?

Among the largest changes will be how Dodge advocates to its fanbase how to set up its brand moving forward. The massive shift to combine electric vehicle technology to its muscle car lineup is underway, but at what cost? What will allow the Dodge engineers to produce the V8 engine-powered muscle cars enthusiasts crave? Buyers expect to have the same heart-racing power offered by the SRT brand, but we now understand there will no longer be a main goal on the SRT mission. This announcement concerning the process was shown to MotorTrend and serves as a reminder of the times regarding the transformation the automotive industry is taking on. This move signals a shift that will be felt for many years, even generation ahead. 

“These products have delighted enthusiasts for nearly two decades, and Stellantis will continue to sell and develop the next generation of Dodge/SRT-branded vehicles, as well as Jeep and Ram vehicles that [utilize] high-performance SRT technology,” Stellantis said in a statement.

Dodge Aims TO Keep SRT Brand Intact

So, in regards to all those famed SRT trims and its unique brand of badges and style, buyers can know this will still be kept. The only sad news is the SRT brand is not keeping up with the same focus as those in power determined they will curb the brand. The boss of the Stellantis brand, Carlos Tavares, has recently said that the performance vehicles like the 2021 Dodge Challenger and 2021 Dodge Charger are here to stay, which is all we want to hear at Miami Lakes Automall. The enjoyment of the SRT brand like what is found in the SRT Hellcat trims is unlike any other brand on the market today. 

“What Hellcat has done is way beyond what our initial expectations were because it’s way beyond what a traditional, very high-end trim does,” Tim Kuniskis, CEO of Dodge

Keep in mind, Dodge sold over 50,000 Hellcat trims in just the last five years alone. Thinking of the cost of any SRT Hellcat, which starts around $60,000 MSRP, we know the reasons lie in the brand’s heart racing power. Check out all the freshest details concerning the upcoming 2022 Charger and 2022 Challenger soon to come later in 2021 to Miami Lakes Automall.Today, the Dodge vehicles have not ever been more complete and powerful. Buyers can expect to enjoy the perks of Dodge engineering and allow us to help with the process of owning or leasing a Dodge vehicle today. 

Dodge Brand Is Working To Add More Horsepower And EV Capabilities

Friday, March 5th, 2021

The Dodge brand is looking ahead to the future, but let us look back to the year the Dodge brand jumped ahead to reinvent itself. The Dodge Charger was brought back in 2006. Re-Debuting at the 2006 North American International Auto Show after its original production started in September 1969 through 1974. Since then, it’s all been a big success including and the brand introduced the 2008 Dodge Challenger. By the time the 2015 model year came around, Dodge introduced the 6.2-Liter HEMI, which is still used today in higher trims across the Dodge brand.

Brief Recap of Recent Dodge Muscle History 

The Dodge brand has only upped the ante as the powertrains would only become more fierce. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was the first Dodge muscle car to add over 800 horsepower in a Dodge production vehicle. They kept up this immense power by maintaining the output of over 800 horsepower with the 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock

“We listen very, very carefully because these are the people who are going to buy these cars. If they tell us there’s something that they want, and it’s possible, we listen very, very closely to them. If I had to categorize it, I would say the Super Stock is nothing like the Demon, and it’s more like the Redeye, just re-tuned for the wheel and tire package. 80 percent Redeye and 20 percent Demon.” -Tim Kuniskis, Dodge President

What Will Become of the Brand?

So, now the muscle car world is looking for a new Dodge emblem. Will the brand push the boundaries even further? The iconic nameplates might see more SRT Hellcat fun. After all, before Stellantis took over for Dodge, the SRT vehicles grew outside of Dodge into the Jeep brand and the Ram brand with the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV and Ram 1500 pickup respectively. A recent episode of the Brembo Red podcast had Ralph Gilles, former CEO of SRT brand. He currently is the Chief Design Officer for Stellantis and hinted the future of the brand rests within the electric future we’ve hinted at before. 

“It might be a combination of electrification and gas. The technology is there,” said Ralph Gilles. 

How Soon Till The Dodge EV Party Begins?

We’ve heard word that Dodge has placed an order for transmissions from ZF Friedrichshafen in 2019, which is different from what is used in the Dodge brand today. The new fourth-gen transmissions purchased in 2019 have the option to include a built-in electric motor. The eight-speed gearbox is able to support the internal combustion engine with up to 160 kW and 450 Nm. These are the kind of leaks that lead to rumors and suggestions about where the brand is headed, for now, let us just appreciate some of the most fierce and firmly established muscle cars in production today, like the 2021 Dodge Challenger and Charger lineup. To get started on driving one of these vehicles, reach out to us at Miami Lakes Automall

SpeedKore Adds 1,000 Horsepower Engine To 1970 Charger For Kevin Hart

Friday, February 5th, 2021

Ask any mechanic or true car enthusiast and they will reveal the trick to knowing how much worth a vehicle has can be found under the hood. As no doubt, owners can measure value by the strength of its engine and how said powertrain sings. The truth is for most customers, they might not be able to convince this to everyone in the family, but let us attempt. Seldom vehicle purchases require some forward-thinking and rationalizing. What exactly is too much power and intensity? Well, for some, like comedian Kevin Hart, there isn’t adequate horsepower in a standard Charger. The famed aftermarket super team at Speedkore has combined the most impressive Mopar/Dodge engine into a renewed 1970 Dodge Charger. This Hellphant V8 engine is the essence of what muscle cars are all about. Few vehicles can manage this remarkable engine’s strengths. 

SpeedKore Pumps Up the Volume For Kevin Hart?

The Hellephant engine was originally showcased back at the 2018 SEMA exhibit and showed the world what a truly high-octane experience can offer drivers. The engine formally arrived in 2019 and offered the lucky owners of it a special Hellcat 6.2-Liter Supercharger V8 engine that carries 1,000 horsepower and 950 lb-ft of torque. This is no ordinary powertrain! Kevin Hart might have a hard time driving this vehicle considering its tremendous strength. The transmission attached to this classic 1970 Charger is right from the legendary 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon; a Demon-spec ZF 8HP90 8-speed automatic transmission and thus completes the perks afforded to the funny man’s impressive muscle car. 

Mastering the Charger Rebuild

Oddly enough, SpeedKore has restored this same Dodge Charger muscle car; the 1970 model. Their previous revisit of this Charger produced their creation known as the “Evolution”. Some perks for that upgrade included a carbon-fiber body with parts from the 1970 Charger original and added as much as they could from the original 1970 Charger. The extension of Brembo brakes with 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers ensure Kevin Hart will be protected when utilizing the brakes to stop this wonderful throwback of a muscle car.
