Drivers that own a modern Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger recognize they enjoy a powerful muscle car that is unlike most vehicles on the streets today. The uncommon factor has also unfortunately made them a mark for criminals to attempt to capture. Like all luxurious vehicles or sports cars, owners know the Dodge brand is subject to theft and Dodge is addressing those concerns with a free update that will not allow carjackers the chance to drive off with the muscle car. Dodge has maintained its promise to accommodate consumers with not only the most agile production vehicles in multiple segments, but also some of the most secure vehicles as well.

All Owners of 2015-2021 Dodge Muscle Cars, We’ve Got News For You 

For all owners of 2015 to present-day Dodge Challenger or Charger models, a launch of a unique code to prevent vehicle theft is available. All that is required is showing up with the vehicle to allow Dodge technicians at a Dodge dealership to obtain the software update. This software update will be used via the Uconnect 4C infotainment system accessing a secondary level of vehicle security encryption. This is revealed right from the highest role of the Dodge brand, Tim Kuniskis, as the efforts to make the Dodge brand more secure was a high priority. 

“Today, Dodge is launching a new owner-customized ‘double verification’ security system. When flashed into the computer of affected 2015 or newer Dodge muscle cars, the protective software will limit the engine output to less than 3 horsepower, foiling fast getaways and joyrides,” remarked Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand CEO – Stellantis. 

Feel More Secure Owning A Dodge Muscle Car

Once updated, the muscle car will restrict the engine from performing and moving over 675 rpm. This will stop any criminal from moving the vehicle and leaving them idle in the vehicle. This move will also help keep the public as a whole safe as many carjackers take these fast muscle cars on joyrides that injure others, including many times the criminal who stole the vehicle. Now they won’t have that chance.

Dodge has come a long way from offering customers a ride that is not only fast looking and impressive, they are also extending the most outstanding security available to keep owners secure, as well as advancing the quality and high-end materials of their Dodge muscle cars. For those who own any of these vehicles, we ask our readers to reach out to us to install the update for free at our service center. 

All of the following can install the update: 2015 Dodge Charger, 2016 Dodge Charger, 2017 Dodge Charger, 2018 Dodge Charger, 2019 Dodge Charger, 2020 Dodge Charger, 2021 Dodge Charger, 2021 Dodge Challenger, 2020 Dodge Challenger, 2019 Dodge Challenger, 2018 Dodge Challenger, 2017 Dodge Challenger, 2016 Dodge Challenger, 2015 Dodge Challenger.

Dodge has earned another award in 2018, this time recognizing the 2018 Dodge Charger for its high quality and performance. After being announced as the winner of Edmunds “Best Retained Value Award”, the Dodge Charger can now add J.D. Power’s Automotive Performance Execution, and Layout (APEAL) Study award to its belt as one of the Top Rated Family Cars. Let’s take a closer look at what this award entails and the details of the latest 2018 Dodge Charger.

J.D. Power Award

J.D. Power uses the results of it’s yearly APEAL Study from buyer’s resources to ensure that customers are educated entirely. Those looking for new vehicles hope to have a clear cut idea as to which vehicle is the most value-driven, reliable and attractive option. That’s exactly what owners of the 2018 Dodge Charger have attested to. The survey is sent out to and completed by  buyers and lessees of new models after they’ve owned their vehicle for at least 90 days.

J.D. Power measures vehicle performance, design, safety and features throughout the survey. Customers love the the appeal brought on by significant horsepower, top-notch handling and retained value with owning the Dodge Charger. It’s easy to see why a spacious ride, user-friendly infotainment system, and nine trims to choose from make the 2018 Dodge Charger stand out from the crowd. With an APEAL Power Circle Rating of 4-out-of-5, the Dodge Charger won along with four other vehicles. This is thanks to the high level engineering and aforementioned reliability, sleek look and impressive value.

Looking Into the 2018 Dodge Charger

With a base price of $30,495 MSRP (Plus Destination Fee), the 2018 Dodge Charger SXT is a great choice and a superb muscle car. For owners looking for a little more engine power, the upgraded 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine will do the trick. Drivers experience better performance than the 3.6-liter engine as well as gain improved fuel economy with the built in multi-displacement system (MDS) that helps to conserve fuel. MDS is modern technology that rewards each owner with intelligent engine performance and greater fuel efficiency. With MDS, when an engine is cruising, four-of-the-eight cylinders are turned off to conserve fuel. This is one of the features that helped earn the award from J.D. Power. A total of 370 horsepower and nearly 400 Ib-ft of torque can be generated by the V8 engine that powers the Dodge Charger R/T and Daytona trim. Owners can expect 16 city and 25 highway MPG with either of those trims.

The 2018 Dodge Charger SRT 392 is equipped with the 392 HEMI SRT V8 engine that produces 485 horsepower and 475 Ib-ft of torque and gets drivers a fuel economy 18 MPG combined. The 2018 Dodge Charger SRT 392 starts at $51,145 MSRP (Plus Destination Fee) and offers more bang-for-buck horsepower. Not a bad choice for drivers, especially those that want to stand out and drive a muscle car with serious performance.

For drivers that want to own the high-end 2018 Dodge Charger, the SRT Hellcat, they will find an exceptional ride. In fact, owners will be hard pressed to find a faster four-door vehicle. Equipped with the superb supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine, the 2018 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat produces 707 horsepower, 650 lb-ft of torque. This SRT Hellcat has a lighting fast record of 0-60 mph time of just 3.4 seconds! The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat costs $66,295 MSRP (Plus Destination Fee).

2018 Dodge Charger Has Value for Years to Come

Miami Lakes Auto 2018 Dodge Charger Residual Value

Miami Lakes Automall has a wide selection of vehicles and brands available. Moreover, whether buying or leasing a car, we carry some of the best options around. All vehicles lose value over time, but not all vehicles lose value at the same rate. Take the Dodge Charger for example. The 2018 Dodge Charger was awarded the Residual Value Award from ALG because it is a quality vehicle that is likely to retain the highest value percentage in its class of its MSRP after three years, and this is the fourth year in a row it has earned that award.

The ALG is a trusted name for businesses looking for growth and success. Namely a company that follows automotive trends, ALG collects and analyzes data to develop projections of sales based on the quality of an automobile before and after ownership. Take for instance a consumer leasing a vehicle for several years. Following the lease term, the vehicle has surely diminished in quality and performance, but it may also have enough residual value that make it a desirable vehicle to buy or lease used.
