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. Reach out to us to get started on making an online service appointment for the update.

The third of five questions have been posted by Dodge during their Dodge Horsepower Challenge. The Dodge questions being posed on both their social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter have the latest question, as do we. First, we recommend our readers learn about how to play in this contest. Dodge brought back the Mayor of Muscleville, famed wrestler and Dodge muscle car enthusiast Bill Goldberg to serve as host. As for last week’s question, the answer was posted on November 19th, 2019.

The contestant who wins the contest will be awarded one of five brand new special-edition TorRed Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. This is currently the fastest Challenger vehicle, made famous when it debuted earlier this year. The SRT Hellcat Redeye carries the highest horsepower offered by Dodge currently at 797 horsepower thanks to the massive 6.2-Liter turbocharged V8 HEMI engine. Contestants are clamoring for the chance to own this special edition Dodge muscle car!

Week Three Has Arrived

This week, the third question is “If we recreated the scene from “Fast & Furious 7” and dropped a Challenger SRT® Hellcat Redeye Widebody from a C-130 aircraft at 5,280 ft, how much horsepower would it take to drive past it before it hits the ground if you’re 1 mile away?”. To view the question being asked by Goldberg himself, check out this link. There will be two more questions that follow, one for each week left in November. This week’s question and each week’s questions are officially launched on Tuesday at 8 a.m. ET and run through Monday, 11:59 p.m. ET. All the official rules can be found at

Dodge Muscle Cars Have All the Power Drivers Could Want

Dodge vehicles bring out the passion in their owners, thanks to unrivaled horsepower and high-performance. The kind of enjoyment drivers gain when driving a Dodge vehicle is unparalleled. While the contest is going on, we encourage our readers to try their hand at answering these questions. Remember, the Dodge Horsepower Challenge is quite challenging! 

“At Dodge, we know that no matter how much horsepower you have, a little more can’t hurt. So we’re giving all our loyal fans an opportunity to get one of our highest horsepower Challenger models for free. Unfortunately, there isn’t really any such thing as free horsepower, so these five lucky Dodge fans will have to earn their way in by answering a horsepower question. Ok, the questions are ridiculously difficult, but it is a free Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, and we’ll help you along the way,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and Fiat, FCA

Dodge is giving away five Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye muscle cars to select winners of their Dodge Horsepower Challenger. Each week for five weeks, Dodge will be choosing a winner among those who answer their weekly questions posed on and their Dodge Twitter and Facebook accounts. Learn more about how to play in this contest, and get ready for week two’s question. The Mayor of Muscleville, famed wrestler and Dodge muscle car enthusiast Bill Goldberg has this week’s question for contestants to answer. Let’s go over the recent results, this week’s question and an overview of the timeframe to answer the questions.

Recap of Recent Contest Results

Last week’s question was definitely challenging (as it should be) and yet, there were quite a number of right answers. The giveaway is for the special-edition  TorRed Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, so of course, many people will seek to win this vehicle from Dodge. Dodge is helping with clues and ways to assist contestants. Following Dodge on social media helps as they post hidden hashtags and hints for what the answer could l

“Dodge fans have inundated our social channels this past week to find hidden hashtags to help them answer the first Dodge Horsepower Challenge question. And I have to say, I’m impressed. Over 3,000 enthusiasts have answered the challenge correctly. So as we release Challenge #2, don’t give up hope, we’ll continue to give out clues on Twitter and Instagram to help,” remarked Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America.

This Week’s Question + Guidelines

The questions are becoming slightly more difficult as this week’s question shows. Unfortunately, Dodge will not provide an easy multiple choice question. Contestants will have to really think and break out some mathematics to correctly solve each question. This week, the Dodge Horsepower Challenge question asked goes as follows: “If we wanted our cars to be quieter, we’d just have to make ’em go faster. How much horsepower would the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye need to get somewhere before the sound of its engine does?” 

The answer will be announced next week with three more questions left before all winners have been accounted for. The time a contestant has ranges from Tuesday, November 19th at 8 am through the following Monday, November 25th at 11:59 pm. For our readers that don’t want to play games, we don’t when it comes to showing off our latest Dodge Vehicles

Special Edition Dodge Muscle Cars Add Remarkable Value

Dodge has done many things this year to step outside of the box. A push has been made for years, however, to see what Dodge muscle cars would look like without any box. By that we mean, is there the possibility of a convertible? We will have to wait and see, but Dodge recently came out with a widebody for the Dodge Charger. We’re going to go over the newest vehicles added to their ever-impressive Dodge muscle lineup. These are the vehicles that helped showcase how innovative Dodge has been. Dodge has created some of the fastest, most powerful, and colorful vehicles on the road today. Special edition packages are available to customers that don’t mind paying a little extra to gain a look that is more unique and adds upgrades for the interior, exterior and more. Let’s explore some of the newest ones added in 2019. 

Special Edition Anyone?

Dodge has introduced plenty of special edition packages for their muscle cars. Just within the past year, they have introduced the Stars and Stripes package, a special edition for both the Charger and Challenger. Celebrating the armed forces with a low-cost $1,995 MSRP cost, drivers can add the green and black body appearance to the R/T, R/T Scat Pack and GT trim levels. The Dodge brand has the highest percentage of active military buyers in the automotive industry.

How about the all-new Octane Edition? This package provides two body color options, “White Knuckle” and “Pitch Black”. The Octane Edition provides 707 horsepower and a fantastic appearance package that provides black wheels, SRT seats with red belts, red Brembo brakes, black badges and a pitch-black interior accent that carries red stitching. The package costs $1,495 MSRP on top of the Hellcat price. 

The Dodge Charger Daytona Edition starts at $3,495 and is available for the R/T and R/T Scat Pack trims. What else does this edition carry? 20-inch painted aluminum wheels, Daytona decals on the hood, roof, and trunk. Daytona front grille and instrument panel badges with Nappa Leather/Alcantara Suede-trimmed seats. Driver and front passenger lower and upper LED lamps. Regarded by many as a thing of beauty with the sharp handling, rear-wheel-drive, and fantastic style for less than some of the highest-tier Dodge muscle cars. 

What separates Dodge from other brands?

Inside the 2019 Dodge Charger and Challenger is the legendary 3.6-Liter V6 powertrain, the engine supplied to all base trims. Next up, the 5.7-Liter HEMI V8 engine provides even more horsepower and torque for owners to embrace. In the highest trim, these muscle cars are given the top-tier turbocharged 6.2-Liter HEMI V8 powertrain that carries the most horsepower provided in nearly any production muscle car on the market today. Perhaps the best way to know which vehicle suits you best is to check in with us.

Look Out Florida Drivers, FHP Has New Dodge Muscle

Florida Highway Patrol has taken the approach that to capture criminals and stop would-be assailants on the highways, they should saddle up their fleet with the latest Dodge muscle cars. Details regarding the FHP Dodge Challenger are limited but, upon closer inspection of the solitary photo tweeted out by FHP Troop G in Jacksonville, Florida as it appears the Challenger is the R/T trim. We believe this might be true as it is listed as having the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 powertrain, which is beneficial for 372 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Let’s look into the latest Challenger made for the Florida Highway Patrol.

More Details From FHP

Taking a look at the FHP’s 2019 Dodge Challenger is unquestionably awesome, it’s not the only police vehicle that looks remarkably sleek. Around the world, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has supplied their vehicles to those in authority. In Italy, the Italian police departments have a passion for Jeeps. Italy’s Carabinieri police use the Jeep Wrangler and Italy’s Polizia di Stato police drive a Jeep Renegade. As far as the United States goes, we know a thing or two about the Dodge muscle cars here. For drivers that are interested in the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T trim, they will gain standard 20″ black aluminum wheels, Panasonic 360-degree HD cameras, and driver and front passenger heated seats and seatbacks. The FHP Challenger will have some features that are not included, like a “new lighting package,” which means the car has LED red-and-blue police lights. The 2019 Dodge Challenger offers 7 trims to choose from. The SXT trim is the base trim, the GT follows and the RT trim follows that. For those looking for the highest trim, step into the SRT Hellcat trims.

Dodge Challenger Models State Side

In the United States, police cars have developed dramatically since the Ford Crown Vic, and Chevy Caprice was patrolling the streets. In a lone tweet from the FHP, they declared the streets and highways will be seen by their eyes and gave a stern warning to the masses. 

“As you can see, we take aggressive driving seriously! Please slow down, buckle up, reduce distractions. We are watching.” – FHP.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger ready to handle the extremes of highway chases. To the criminals who think they can beat out a Dodge Challenger. Good luck to them! For our readers interested in finding the latest Dodge muscle cars, there is a place to check out and test-drive them with us. We’re waiting at Miami Lakes Automall

A Look Into Dodge From Within

Friday, July 12th, 2019

While many know Dodge for creating some of the fastest production vehicles, those in charge of the brand know exactly what they are and what they are not. Dodge has introduced a wave of the fastest muscle cars with their newest Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger entries. They have the Dodge Journey that mixes together luxury with the capabilities of high-speed thrills in their SRT (street racing technology) trim. But where does Dodge see its self heading in the upcoming decade? More than just making an electric future a reality, those in charge have thought long and hard about where to take this high-octane brand.

 “Love it or hate it, Dodge has an identity that separates it from the pack,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars.

The State of Dodge

In 2019, cars seem to be disappearing in the automotive industry. Dodge possesses the antidote to keep a car around: make an excellent car and keep the nameplate secure by introducing muscular modifications, aesthetic treatments, and new packages. Technically, the Dodge Challenger has not updated its frame since 2008.  However, the Challenger has added the Demon, Redeye, and Dodge Challenger Scat Pack 1320, among others. Fans of the Dodge brand love these high-powered muscle cars that contain over 700 horsepower, including up to 840 horsepower in the aforementioned SRT Demon. While the Demon was discontinued, the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye boasts 797 horsepower and costs way less. 

“When we did the Demon, I honest to God thought that was the muscle-car mic drop. As soon as we did it, we were like, ‘What else you got?’” said Tim Kuniskis. 

Upcoming 50th Anniversary of the Dodge Challenger

There are some upcoming hallmarks Dodge is getting ready to celebrate. 2019 makes the 50th anniversary of the Dodge Challenger, we’re anticipating to see anniversary editions. In just the past ten years, Dodge has witnessed a 60 percent jump in Challenger and Charger sales, with the Challenger hitting their best sales mark ever in 2018. Regardless of the platform, there are no plans to abandon them since the demand is there. The Dodge Durango has fit the brand as a top choice for those looking for a three-row SUV that never feels like one. Will Dodge create a smaller SUV?

“I’m not going to lie to you and tell you it’s perfectly aligned with the direction that the brand’s headed. But it’s a great-looking car in a great segment that sells extremely well, so I see no problem with Journey,”  remarked Tim Kuniskis.

For those who are more excited to jump into their muscle car than anything else or want to spring into a new ride that is sleek and exhilarating, consider Dodge as the choice. Drivers everywhere wish to embrace their car as purchasing a vehicle is one of the most significant investments anyone can make. Dodge muscle cars are the end game for all things fast and for a good reason. Begin the escape with a new Challenger, offering many trims and different levels of excellence. The high-end 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is beyond detailed with an unrivaled 790 horsepower from the 6.2-Liter HEMI V8  and a dual hood air intake. Go from 0-60 in only 3.4 seconds! How is this possible?

Dodge Perfects Their Launch Control

Dodge improved their Launch Control feature with the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. At the time the since retired muscle car was the most powerful production vehicle on the market, a title now held by the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Consider the power offered by the 650 lb-ft of torque and ability to soar past 200 mph effortlessly, the high-end Challenger is not for the faint of heart. How is that possible? Line Lock was made to engage the front breaks, but not the rear wheels so the vehicle can build up speed without any burnout. However, drivers don’t need a high-end Challenger to enjoy one of the best features made by Dodge. The Launch Control feature enables a driver to hold their Dodge muscle car anywhere from five to up to 10 seconds for the optimal launch with a consistently straight line dispatch. With so many features customizable, luckily this is one feature that comes standard for the 2019 Dodge Challenger.

Things To Consider When Shopping For a Challenger

The 2019 Challenger comes in seven significant trims ranging from the SXT, GT, R/T, R/T 392, SRT Hellcat and the SRT Hellcat Redeye. Only the SXT and GT have a V6 engine, but the rest gain a V8 engine. Unique styling differences and performance measures are what separate each trim and variations. The SRT Hellcat also carries a dual-snorkel feature that pushes up the horsepower to 717 horsepower, 10 more horsepower than the previous model year. The SRT Hellcat Redeye is extremely detailed and even the Hellcat logo carries a “Redeye” to showcase the tremendous attention to every feature about this fantastic muscle car.

2019 Dodge Challenger Pricing

The base model Challenger starts at $27,595 MSRP (plus destination fee), and the high-end SRT Hellcat Redeye starts at $71,250 MSRP (plus destination fee), which is $15,000 or so less than the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, despite being made of Demon parts and only slightly less powerful.

How the Dodge Challenger Has Stayed Popular

Friday, May 24th, 2019

2019 Dodge Challenger T/A 392

Dodge has earned the reputation for crafting and engineering the fastest, most powerful Muscle cars in the world. Their most respected muscle car to date is the Dodge Challenger. The current Challenger has not received a major change to its design since 2008 (not that the Challenger needed to). Dodge has still introduced new trims and special edition Challenger cars to their line-up. Most recently, the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) product did something it never has before. The future of the Dodge Challenger will only continue to improve, let us explain.

Climbing the Charts

The Detroit Free Press broke the news that the Dodge Challenger outsold the Chevrolet Camaro in the first quarter of 2019. Thanks to those newly introduced trims like the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, Dodge had 13,431 vehicles sold, placing in second only behind the Ford Mustang (16,917 units). The Camaro fell into third place with 12,083 units sold. Chevrolet even refreshed the Camaro last year, but the response was lackluster. That can’t be said for Dodge from their robust vehicles, slick advertising, and growing fan base.

Dodge Sales Reflect Growing Popularity

Dodge still pulled ahead of the Camaro selling 66,716 units, opposed to the Camaro with 50,963 units sold in 2018. The Dodge Challenger over the last four years has been a model of consistency selling annually around 65,000 vehicles. The Chevy Camaro has tailed off since 2014 and even the Ford Mustang sales have fallen in recent years since 2015. While some analysts believe drivers are now looking for more fuel-efficient vehicles. However, if that were the case dodge muscle cars would not be as successful as they have been. The power of the V8 HEMI powertrain is as attractive as it’s ever been. Dodge also has improved their infotainment system, Uconnect, Plus added Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with larger touchscreens and faster response times. Combining both the incredible horsepower with updated technology has driven sales for Dodge.

Dodge Wins Over Buyers

Dodge has taken the share of buyers thanks to recent entries like the popular, limited production run of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, last year’s 2019 Challenger Hellcat Redeye and a slew of special editions. The Dodge brand across their whole line-up provides roomier interiors for daily driving and even an all-wheel-drive version to allow drivers more options. For muscle car enthusiasts, Dodge is a brand that has been around for generations. Dodge continues to push the envelope and satisfy what customers want most: excitement. Don’t worry about where to look to get a fantastic deal on a new Dodge.

The Dodge Challenger Scat Pack 1320 Named Drag Strip Worthy

Thursday, April 25th, 2019

Dodge has a fresh face that will be joining the ranks of other muscle cars on the drag strip. Street-legal and able to compete with the best of the best according to the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 has been approved to hit the circuit. Not many vehicles on the road today can be driven safely on the road and compete in NHRA’s Stock and Super Stock Sportsman class racing. Wondering what makes this Challenger capable of drag racing?

What Makes the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 Special?

Dodge engineers high-performance muscle cars that are fast. The Challenger R/T Scat Pack is one of the strongest and fastest products ever made by Dodge. Starting with its hunky HEMI V8 engine that produces 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque and provides a quarter-time of 11.70 seconds at a top speed of 115 mph. This is all packed into a sleek looking design that demands attention. People have definitely noticed as the Dodge Challenger outsold the Chevrolet Camaro in 2018 as well as the first quarter of 2019 with no signs of slowing down. The Challenger moved 13,431 vehicles ahead of the Chevrolet Camaro sales of 12,083 vehicles sold. That was the first year in the Dodge brand’s history to outsell the Camaro. Not only did Dodge earn second behind the Ford Mustang, but the Mustang has also seen slumping sales every year for four straight years.  In 2015 the Mustang sold over 115,000 vehicles, but they finished 2018 with fewer than 75,000 Mustang muscle cars sold. Look for Dodge to continue pushing for the top spot as their innovation leads the way for customers.

“The first generation of Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger are the top collected vehicles in North America and transcend all generations. People have speculated about the death of the American muscle car since the mid-1970s, but the golden age of American muscle is happening right now in terms of horsepower and overall performance,” said Jonathan Klinger, spokesperson for Hagerty, the Traverse City-based collector car insurance and valuation company.

Hit the Strip With the R/T Scat Pack

Looking for a ride that can take you to work and yet still be cleared for competition on the weekends? For some, that’s the ideal choice. Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 includes a class weight break of 8.72 and carry a minimum weight of 3,400 pounds. Drivers planning to race at an NHRA event must meet all rule and regulations expected for the category they hope to participate in. The Scat Pack 1320 was also granted entrance to be admitted upon modification to join the private NHRA Stock Eliminator competition. The Challenger 1320 has received a “B” stock category. Luckily, the modification of the vehicle is not required for access racing in the National Muscle Car Association events.

Get Stung By the Angry Bee

The “Angry Bee” design brings about an impeccable design, showcased on a badge that shows a buzzing bee placed on the front fenders, on the instrument panel, as well as the headlamps. The Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is expected to hit dealerships around the United States soon. The special package that improves upon the R/T Scat Pack, the 1320 version is faster by .03 seconds in the quarter-mile with a time of 11.70 seconds as well as 0.3 seconds going from 0-60 mph acceleration time, done in a mere 3.8 seconds.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 Package is an additional $3,995, which begins at $38,995 MSRP (plus destination fee) for the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack. The mandatory automatic transmission attaches $1,595 as well. Owners will receive complimentary, one-year memberships in the NHRA and NMCA for the 2019 season to allow for drag racing privileges and getting to be around other muscle cars that can go as fast as the “Angry Bee” can, or at least they can try.

Dodge has decided to do things differently lately and they have enjoyed more success as a result. Comparing 2017 and 2018 sales, Dodge sold 12,000 more vehicles in 2018. In addition, Dodge introduced new SRT vehicles including the fastest SRT in production today, the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and a new Scat Pack 1320 trims. Dodge added more value for less cost in 2018 for their customers and have goals to make 2019 as special as any year prior. How will the future be different for their loyal fan base? Let’s explore some of the changes that Dodge has taken a look to make their Dodge vehicles better.

The Electric Dodge Challenger

Dodge has revealed plans to introduce an electric Challenger, gaining extra horsepower through use of more modern technology. While the technology has caught up to the automotive industry, Dodge is has been known for having high performance, gas-powered engines. We’re not certain about which powertrains will gain an electric influence. Perhaps the long-running Pentastar 3.6-Liter V6 engine is a candidate. Dodge has been able to enhance their current vehicles with new technology to increase their MPG. Even the wicked fast SRT Hellcat has increased to an impressive 30 highway MPG, but there is always room to improve and ways to get better.

Recently speaking on the subject, Mike Manley, CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), the parent company of Dodge, mentioned their upcoming ideas for how to add new ways to achieve better results going forward to the next decade.

“The reality is those platforms and that technology we used does need to move on. They can’t exist as you get into the middle-2020s. New technology is going to drive a load of weight out, so we can think of the powertrains in a different way. And we can use electrification to really supplement those vehicles.” said FCA CEO Mike Manley at the Detroit Auto Show.

The Need For Innovation

Manley has stated that adding the electric-powered influence in Dodge vehicles won’t take away from the remarkable high-performance pedigree. Manley said they won’t have the electric-capabilities star as the focal point of any vehicle, but rather just increase performance. As fuel efficiency and hybrids have grown and taken hold of the industry, Dodge is just hoping to stay current. Fans of Dodge and their immense horsepower (797 horsepower is found in the Hellcat Redeye, for example) will be happy to know Dodge is adding more ways to increase the strength and vigor of their vehicles.
