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 announced a new vehicle to celebrate the semi-centennial of the Challenger. The 50th Anniversary Edition Challenger will receive a new Commemorative Edition that can be ordered across three 2020 Challenger trims including the R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and the R/T Scat Pack Widebody. The rear-wheel-drive V6 GT model can also be added with the 50th Anniversary Edition. Let’s break down all the fun awaiting future owners of this special edition. 

Owners Will Have A Lot of Choices

What owners will gain with the commemorative car is quite similar to the 50th Anniversary Edition. Hand-painted Satin Black hood with black-wrapped roof and decklid, the Dodge Hellcat air intake and headlights, Satin Black fuel filler cap with Gunmetal-colored brake calipers on trim that have the red Brembo brakes. Gold School-colored wheels, lots of badging that carry “50” logos that are illuminated. Drivers will find the interior gains sepia stitching, heated and cooled performance seating and additional sepia thread on the Alcantara door bolsters that carry white gages with detailed yellow accents, berber floor mats, real carbon fiber trim pieces, and a bunch more badging. 

How Much Does the Commemorative Challenger Cost?

This special edition comes with real carbon fiber trim pieces with a look that would impress any fans of the 1970 Challenger, which can be found in the gauge cluster animation awaiting drivers.  Dodge claims this commemorative vehicle will be available in the fall. The price point is expected to add $4,995 for this optional package of a 2020 Dodge Challenger R/T, $5,495 to the price of the R/T Scat Pack, and $5,495 to the cost of the R/T Scat Pack Widebody. There are plenty of choices for customers to decide their options.

Tons of Colors To Choose From

Keep in mind, the 50th Anniversary Challenger muscle car is ready in optional body color choices including F8 Green, Frostbite, Go Mango, Hellraisin, Sinamon Stick, TorRed, or the all-new Gold Rush. The difference for the Commemorative Edition is the color palette includes Granite, Indigo Blue, Octane Red, Pitch Black, Triple Nickel, White Knuckle, and the new Smoke Show hue. That latter color replaces Destroyer Gray, and can be ordered on the Charger as well.

“I consider these cars to have a soul and they are timeless. We continue to refine these cars and offer new packages and engine upgrades, things that really resonate with our customers. That’s what led us,” Mark Trostle FCA Designer.

The Dodge Power Dollars promotion is officially underway! Customers in the United States can save big when they purchase any 2020 Dodge Charger or 2020 Dodge Challenger model. Here is how Power Dollars savings work. Buyers receive $10 off for each horsepower in the form of a cash allowance. Therefore, the more horsepower in the buyer’s vehicle, the greater the cash allowance. This can be a great way to save thousands of dollars and allow customers to end up in a better muscle car option as a result. For example, those who want to opt for the best Challenger, the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye will receive an incredible $7,970 in cash allowance. Allow us to share more about the incredible performance the Dodge muscle car has done in both sales and what Dodge offers now in 2020.

Building On Prior Success

Dodge and parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) brought back the Dodge Power Dollars campaign after witnessing phenomenal sales in the second half of 2019. In fact, a record number of both Charger and Challenger models were sold to the tune of 84,216 vehicles. Dodge added over 33 million horsepower over to customers and Dodge muscle car lovers in the second half of 2019 alone. The addition of the new Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody helped Dodge move the highest amount of Charger muscle cars since 2013 with 96,935 vehicles sold. The Dodge Challenger held its own with over 60,000 Charger models sold in 2019, which was more than double than the year the Challenger came out. 

Dodge Keeps Growing In Popularity

Dodge and the Street Racing Technology vehicles they have, also known as SRT, are more popular than ever. Over 11 million followers across the various social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) have helped share and bring attention to the latest Dodge muscle cars and the entire SRT lineup. In 2020, Dodge has made these vehicles even more impressive. Fan engagement is expected to increase and see growth with the hashtag #TheMuscleBehindUs serve as the common link fans can use to see the latest and greatest Dodge vehicles. This is in addition to the moniker created that encapsulates the feeling of owning a muscle car and embracing others who do with the “Brotherhood of Muscle”. Dodge is even making a social series that will feature select fans that have a chance to be featured in. Dodge muscle car owners can take part by adding their own stories and videos on their own social media pages with the unique hashtag attached. 

“Our Dodge performance enthusiasts are drawn together by their love of American muscle. And Dodge Power Dollars has tapped into something very powerful. So we’re now making Dodge Power Dollars available on any 2020 model-year Charger or Challenger to make it even easier for our fellow horsepower addicts to join ‘The Brotherhood of Muscle.” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler, FCA – North America.

Dodge Switches Up Splitter Guard Color With A Dramatic Change

Monday, February 24th, 2020
Splitter Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge and FCA have developed a very ingenious plan to better preserve their top muscle car paint jobs and ensure they remain protected. In the last half-decade, many owners have managed to retain their splitter guards on their Dodge muscle cars. This was not the original intention by Dodge when the vehicles were designed. If these splitter guards are not taken off, they could potentially harm the body’s paint. Splitter guards are used as a shield for the splitter should any object come in contact with it during transportation or when moving during the off-load process at a dealership. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), the parent company of Dodge, has supervised the choice to use these plastic guards, beginning in 2015 when they originally commenced the splitter guards existing. Over the past five years, a community has embraced and kept these plastic splitter guards on their Dodge muscle cars. This is somewhat of a polarizing topic as even a Facebook group of splitter guard fans has over 12,000 members, but FCA has made a choice to change the formerly yellow-colored guards to change to a new hot-pink color.

Here Comes the Hot Pink Flare

Enter the new hot-pink brightness attached with the splitter guards. Luckily, one group of customers might enjoy this change more so than any other place in the country. That would be Dade Country, with our Miami Heat Vice City fans. However, customers at large might not welcome the change. Luckily, there is a genuine reason these splitter guards were changed. They were first intended to be separated by dealerships, but many of them have decided to leave the choice to the customer after a purchase. Having a splitter guard taken off the vehicle is one way to ensure the vehicle maintains its brand new look. Some customers believe the splitter guard looks new. Keep in mind, several other ways are more reliable to find out how new a vehicle is. Checking the title, checking a carfax, or fastest is the odometer. Since the odometer is less prominent than a splitter guard, some first-time customers are instantly attracted to the plastic splitter guard. That might change when the pink ones start to roll out.

Guard The Paint Job With No Splitter Guards

Many people look forward to driving off the lot with the splitter guard on. Nevertheless, the current head designer of the Dodge and SRT had this to say about those owners and he has been outspoken that he isn’t a fan of the splitter guard. Keeping the paint safe for the vehicle is what FCA and drivers ultimately want most. With the splitter guards on, the paint fades over time, seemingly because the plastic can move somewhat and produce irritation that removes the paint faster. The addition of the splitter guard wasn’t “part of the original design” for FCA and Dodge. While this new trend that has been staying around and grew out of popularity for the wrong reasons, we still allow the choice to be up to the customer. Currently, the splitter guards are made with yellow and that is expected to change eventually in 2020 to pink. Have more questions? Feel free to ask us at Miami Lakes Automall.

Dodge dealerships will be receiving this special edition Challenger in December 2019. While there have been 50 years that have passed since the inception of the Challenger, the modern-looking Challenger built with the same unibody used today began back in 2008.

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

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.

2020 Dodge Barracuda: Rumor or Next Dodge Car?

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019
Barracuda Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge has seen their Challenger muscle car move ahead of their rival the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro in 2019. After third-quarter sales were revealed, Dodge was more than happy to see the success of their high-performance muscle car. However, with the loss in recent years of the Dodge Viper in 2017 and the Dodge Grand Caravan ending in 2020, Dodge has some room to add new vehicles. Perhaps that is the logic behind the rumors of the long-speculated Dodge Barracuda. 

More Speculation On the Barracuda

The rumors are just that, according to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), but some publications have reported that next year Dodge is set to produce a new car in 2020. There is no doubt Dodge has loyal fans of both the Challenger and Charger, but one more could vehicle could never hurt. Originally, the Barracuda, made by Plymouth before it became the Dodge brand, was a pony car. Whether the Barracuda is a sports car like the Viper or another muscle car, Dodge can find success with a new edition. Some believe the Barracuda could be a new trim or special edition convertible Challenger labeled as the Barracuda. Fellow FCA brand Chrysler has brought back another Plymouth nameplate with the Voyager returning as two lower-trim options for the Chrysler Pacifica. The Voyager minivan was successful in its day before its original run ended in 2000 and has already debuted as apart of the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica trim set. 

What Will the Barracuda Have?

Reports have the 2020 Dodge Barracuda becoming one of the fastest Dodge cars, close to the famed 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The SRT Demon has 840 horsepower and the expectation is the Barracuda will go 203 mph and come close to 800 horsepower. The fastest Dodge Challenger that is available today for sale is the SRT Hellcat Redeye that hits 797 horsepower. Should the rumors be true, the Barracuda will be a highly sought after vehicle. While the speculation is exciting, we know the best feeling driving a new Dodge vehicle that isn’t a rumor. The latest line-up of Dodge muscle cars is quite remarkable. Driving one of these high-powered Dodge vehicles is an experience we’ll be happy to share for our customers.

Breaking Down the 2020 Dodge Challenger Packages

Friday, September 13th, 2019
2020 Challenger Miami Lakes Automall

The 2020 Dodge Challenger is set to debut in the fall of 2019, which will be here before we know it. Our readers want to be informed about all the details and specs, but keep in mind all of the unique features of the upcoming Challenger: all the packages awaiting buyers. When the 2020 Dodge Challenger becomes available, drivers will have exactly 19 different packages and trim options across the entire 2020 model. From the base trim to the high-end SRT Hellcat Redeye, the 2020 Dodge Challenger has package options for every kind of Dodge Challenger driver. A package is the performance upgrade, appearance upgrade or both that are supplied to a particular trim. 

Deciding On a Challenger Package? Let Us Help

When thinking of the Dodge Challenger, most buyers imagine a very strong and fast muscle car. However, there are many key differences that separate the base trim from the higher trims as we will discuss. From more powerful engines to more decked out interiors, buyers trim choice usually reflects how they will use their Challenger. In addition, so will the package. Sometimes the more cost-effective way to save money is to opt for a package rather than a higher trim. Let’s get into the specific packages that will supply more Dodge muscle fun to buyers looking to upgrade their vehicle with an awesome package. 

Make a Serious Jump In Performance

If the Challenger R/T or GT are looking to add some flare, the Performance Handling Group improves the braking system, adds high-performance suspension, 20-inch “Lights Out” wheels wrapped by 245/45ZR20 all-season performance tires and improved performance steering. For drivers that want to experience some of the perks of the Street Racing Technology (SRT) trim offered in the Hellcat, we suggest opting for a performance upgrade package in the very least. If a buyer envisions days spent on a race track, by all means, this is a great start. The Dynamics Package is available solely for the Scat Pack trim, which adds new 20×9.5-inch black wheels, 275-wide all-season tires, and premium Brembo brakes from the Hellcat trim to the Scat Pack. 

Want to See a New Look?

As stated earlier, not every package is about performance. Two packages are offered that focus solely on the vehicle’s exterior. The Painted Black Satin Graphic Package is available for every SRT Hellcat and Hellcat Redeye, which adds a painted hood, roof and trunk lid. 

The Technology Group Package gives the 2020 Dodge Challenger improved rain-sensing windshield wipers, Forward Collision Warning and adaptive cruise control. Auto high-beam headlamp control is also added. For those who want to add the adaptive cruise control, the Forward Collision Warning package is available for all trims with automatic transmission, except for the SRT Hellcat Redeye trim. 

Want to upgrade the interior appearance? The Alcantara Appearance Package will supply the SRT Hellcat or Hellcat Redeye trim with Alcantara suede and premium Laguna leather seating and the included SRT Hellcat logo stitched into the seats. A power four-way lumbar adjust is added along with a “Wildwheel” Alcantara steering wheel. The Mopar Interior Appearance group will supply the SXT, GT, R/T and Scat Pack, except for all-wheel-drive and supercharged trim levels, with a trunk mat, bright door sills, premium floor mats with a matching bright pedal kit. The Driver Convenience Group package provides HID headlamps, Blind-spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross Path detection. This is an option for nearly every trim. 

Audio Upgrades?

Looking to upgrade just the audio system? The Alpine Audio Group adds nine premium Alpine speakers in a set up that adds a subwoofer hooked up to a 506-watt amplifier. Or the Harman Kardon Audio Group upgrade might work as an option. This will add a Harman Kardon 900-watt amplifier, 18 premium speakers and a tire service kit instead of a spare tire.
