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.

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.

The award season is in full swing and one of the most prized vehicles this year is none other than the 2019 Jeep® Wrangler, winning the ALG Residual Value, for the second year in a row. The 2019 Dodge Charger also won the award, taking it home for the fifth year in a row. It’s the only four-door muscle car to win in the ALG Residual Value in the Full-size Car segment. The 2019 Jeep Wrangler also took home Motor Trend’s 2019 SUV of the Year as well. The reasons these two Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) products won are plentiful as they both represent the best in their respective categories for a reason.

New 2019 Jeep Wrangler, A Natural Choice For Adventure

Considered the most distinguished vehicle in the world, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler earns a back-to-back win in the ALG Off-Road Utility segment thanks to its all-new design and uncompromising innovation. Jeep worked hard towards creating an even more accessible and easier to use Wrangler. Removing the doors, window and hard or soft top has never been simpler. ALG Residual Value Awards distinguish vehicles and brands that stand out from the rest of the market by designing quality, long-term dependability and influential desirability. ALG is considered one of the industry benchmarks for continuing values and depreciation data.

Step Into the 2019 Dodge Charger

More than a leader in terms of sales, the latest Dodge Charger has won in the Full-size Car segment for half a decade thanks to an enduring focus on improving every aspect of the vehicle. The 2019 Dodge Charger is no exception to innovation and the Charger SRT Hellcat trim is an example of remarkable high-performance excellence with a remarkable 707 horsepower in the 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 powertrain. Across every trim, owners will have an impressive muscle car with tremendous horsepower.

“As a niche player in the segment, the Dodge Charger offers the best of both worlds with the comfort of a full-size sedan and the power of a muscle car. High performance offered at an affordable price-point leads Charger to sweep the full-size segment and take home its fifth consecutive Residual Value Award,” said Eric Lyman, senior vice president of ALG.

More on the 2019 Wrangler

The praise for the all-new 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL was commented on as well. For any person looking for the perfect off-road vehicle that embraces technology and innovation with a wonderful track record of resale value, there are few better options than a 2019 Jeep Wrangler.

“Jeep has a long and successful history in off-road utilities and the Wrangler combines function and comfort, adding new technology and powertrain offerings. This strong value proposition makes it no surprise to see the Wrangler win the Residual Value Award in the Off-Road Utility segment for the second year in a row,” Lyman said.

Where The Dodge Challenger Began To Present Day

The Dodge Challenger is recognized for making the most of the Dodge muscle car expertise. Beginning with the original 135 horsepower 1959 Dodge Coronet, named the Dodge Silver Challenger (pictured above). The “Silver Challenger” is a special edition two-door coupe that was also available with a 255 horsepower Red Ram V8 engine. The original Challenger vehicle was a coupe with a powerful engine and that trend continues today. What’s been upgraded over the years? For many, the Challenger really got started with the Dodge pony cars from 1970 through 1974.

Today, Challengers reflect a refined design that has only become more respected and revered. Rich upgrades are very evident with the newest incarnation of the Dodge Challenger. No vehicles made today have the style and noticeable appearance like the 2019 Dodge Challenger. The dual-snorkel hood look on the 2019 Dodge Challenger was inspired by the 1970s Dart Stinger pictured below (which carried a turbine engine with an inline-six or V8 powertrain) and the wicked 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

The history of the Dodge Challenger will make others take notice, honk or wave at the sight of one. This is due to the enduring legacy Dodge has earned with its pedigree of thriving muscle cars like the legendary Challenger. This has never been more evident than in the latest version of the Dodge Challenger. Matching an inspiration of high-performance and iconic design, the latest entry into the Dodge lineup is quite impressive.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger Is A Powerhouse

The 2019 Dodge Challenger provides many options, from the base trim to the full-throttle action of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, which carries a 797 horsepower 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 engine. Not just quick and fitted for high-performance driving, the available 8.4-inch Uconnect system is the latest infotainment system that makes accessing a smartphone simpler and gives that critical aspect of allowing drivers more time to concentrate on the path rather than their phone. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth capabilities and navigation options are available for Owners with the latest Uconnect infotainment system. Dodge Challengers provide an experience unlike any other vehicle and are celebrated for their driving ability and swift acceleration. The beast among all the trims is the SRT Hellcat Redeye (pictured below).

2019 Dodge Challenger Miami Lakes Automall

The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye carries new badging, including a sinister red eye highlighted on the Hellcat fender badges, instrument panel, key fobs, and supercharger housing. Inside, the performance interior features a new 220-mph red speedometer and Redeye logo splash screen. The future of the Challenger is here, more powerful than any other Dodge muscle car available today.

Latest Charger Revealed at SEMA Show

Thursday, November 1st, 2018

The 2019 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show is an annual event in Las Vegas that draws massive attention due to all the wild, large, and innovative vehicles being shown off to the world. For 2019, Fiat Chrysler presented their Charger sedan series with new technology that premiered in their 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. FCA is continuing to nurture what is now practically the only 4-door muscle car in North America by giving it some brand new exterior aesthetic options from the SRT Hellcat and R/T models.

“The Dodge Charger continues its run as the sales leader in the large car segment for the fifth year in a row. And as the aftermarket customization business continues to balloon, these new stripe options give Charger buyers the opportunity to make what is already the only four-door muscle car in the market even more unique, and to do it straight from the factory,” said Steve Beahm, head of passenger cars at FCA North America.

SEMA Show Featuring the Newest Dodge Charger

During the 2018 SEMA Show, Dodge is commencing with three new Charger SRT Hellcat models, each with three new dual-center stripe colors (Red, Blue, and Silver) that run down the center of the car and over both fascias, from the hood and across the roof. The blue stripes run especially great with a white body-painted Charger, while the silver-on-black combo is a fun look for owners to enjoy. The red-on-black style has a tremendous and sharp look that screams Hellcat. The Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack will also add stripes that were previously only on other trims –  Dual-Carbon stripes are available for non-supercharged Chargers at the low price of $995. This has never before been offered on non-supercharged Charger trims.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is excited to share upgrades for higher-end Charger muscle cars with parts right out of the famed 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Line-lock and launch assist aides to give a perfect start at the drag strip, and thanks to new dual air inlets, this Charger sounds like the Demon and provides that extra purr that sounds so nice. Torque Reserve and an after-run chiller were also added for this Hellcat trim, and both the R/T and R/T Scat Pack trims will gain a launch-control switch. Get ready to move quickly when driving this new Dodge muscle car.

More Surprises From Mopar

Mopar introduced a 426 HEMI engine to be a part of the Hellephant 426 Supercharged Crate HEMI crate box. This crate will include a 1000 horsepower engine that can also generate 950 lb-ft of torque. The engine will be increased from 6.2 to 7.0 liters. Come to think of it, this new Hellephant engine is getting a lot of changes, making it a hybrid of the most powerful Dodge engines to date.

Equipped with an improved supercharger, a high-efficiency rotor has been mounted onto the engine block, with the engine block itself made out of aluminum to cut some weight. The Hellephant engine borrows valve covers from the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye valve train; valves, locks and retainers from the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon; comes with a special high-lift cam and custom-forged pistons. For complete assembly, the Hellephant also requires a water pump, flywheel, front sump oil pan, supercharger with throttle body, fuel injectors, and coil packs.

The coolest thing about the new Hellephant crate is the plan to offer a “Front End Accessory Drive” kit that will be able to be inserted into any pre-1976 Dodge muscle car with an alternator, power steering pump and all the belts and pulleys needed to get the job done. Dodge is pulling out all the stops for the new wave of new vehicles and the place to find them will be Miami Lakes Automall.

2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit Debuts

Friday, June 22nd, 2018
Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit

The 2018 Dodge Durango Pursuit was unveiled not too long ago, May 2018, and it was another welcomed vehicle by police and law enforcement officers (LEOs). Like the Dodge Charger Pursuit, the Dodge Durango Pursuit was tailored as a vehicle for the police force. Evildoers will want to think twice about their next high-speed chase – Powered by a HEMI V8 engine, the Dodge Durango Pursuit may as well be a battering ram. Now, with 2019 details having been leaked for the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger, Dodge debuted the 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit at the National Sheriffs Association Show.

For the 2018 and 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit models, the powertrain is made up of a 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Both model years also come with the same standard all-wheel drivetrain (AWD) to handle all types of terrain. If things get a little bumpy, the 2018 and 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit are outfitted with a two-speed transfer case for true low-range off-road capability. The 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit also offers a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine option for 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque and a highway fuel economy of 25 mpg versus 22 mpg on the highway with the 360hp 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine.

The body and chassis of the Dodge Durango also received modifications for its entrance exam into the police academy. For instance, the 2018 Dodge Durango Pursuit includes the segment’s longest wheelbase (119.8 inches) to provide added stability and improved handling, 8.1 inches of ground clearance, and larger, heavy-duty anti-lock brakes. Assuming these changes carry over to the 2019 model, the 2019 Dodge Durango Pursuit has a pursuit-rated brake package that features 13.8-inch rotors up front and 13-inch units in the rear for impressive stopping power.


2019 Dodge Challenger and Charger Teased

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Teased

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Teased

Dodge’s heritage is one of those things that will always make Dodge vehicles like the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger unmistakable from the other muscle cars in the market. With 2018 heading into the summer, that means vehicles for the 2019 model year will start to make their appearances. With that comes the teasing and debuts of many concepts and changes for some of our favorites. Most recently is the tease Dodge gave us about the new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.

From what one can see in the image below, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will be getting 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 Dodge Challenger made its introduction in 1970. It was the first-generation Dodge Challenger that also introduced the Dodge Challenger Trans Am, or T/A for short, along with the R/T (Road/Track) trim. Both of these vehicles were made for racing on the strip or driving in the streets – sound familiar?
