Dodge Leaps and Bounds Ahead of Chevy and Ford

Thursday, January 6th, 2022
2021 Dodge Kendall Dodge

The Dodge Challenger was the leading muscle car of 2021, ending up ahead of the Ford Mustang for the first time since 2015. The Dodge muscle ride sold 54,314 vehicles, a 3% growth over its 2020 tally. The Ford Mustang sold 52,414 muscle vehicles and it slowed down 14% from 2020. The changing of the guard has been coming for a long time and the Dodge brand is happy to know it’s sold more than the Chevrolet Camaro as well, a vehicle that only sold 21,893 vehicles in 2021. We can’t even imagine how much higher the sales will be after the Dodge EV lineup comes out. 

From the Top Selling to the Most Unique Sales of 2021

At the beginning of every year we look back at some of the sales totals from the previous year. There were quite a bit of tempting choices that were sold as new vehicles from Stellantis in 2021. Among the options were four new Dodge Viper vehicles, as many as 10 Dodge Darts and even more vehicles that have been concluded. The Chrysler Town & Country, Chrysler 200, and Jeep Patriot were also moved in 2021 as well. There was a time when the Dodge Viper sports car was a sizzling hot option, but half a decade has gone by since the last production vehicle debuted as the 2017 Dodge Viper. The Dodge Dart on the other hand, the Dart has not been in production since last being built in 2015. The Chrysler Town & Country dealt only four vehicles, but the Town & Country was last made in 2016. 

Jeep Patriot Sells More

The Jeep Patriot SUV crossover ran its course and the production run ended in 2016. The Belvidere Assembly Plant last saw one roll off the production chain in December 2016. There were actually 16 units sold in 2021 and that was an outstanding 433% difference from 2020. Not that Stellantis is going to revive any of these vehicles as they have provided customers with a wide slew of options. The 2022 Jeep lineup contains more choices than ever before for shoppers. The new year has brought many perks for those looking to upgrade their current ride and we can’t wait to help put on some smiles on the faces of our customers at Miami Lakes Automall.

New 2022 Dodge Durango Gains R/T Plus Trim

Tuesday, November 30th, 2021

Dodge is no stranger to offering customers exactly what they want most. The Dodge brand has been in the news making waves and all sorts of noise to a positive response with its EV muscle car set to debut in less than two years. We can be assured the Dodge brand is set to offer a slew of outstanding vehicles that are electrified and awesome, but for now, the latest news is focused on what we have today. The current Dodge vehicle that is receiving some attention is the famed, tried-and-true Dodge Durango SUV. The 2022 Dodge Durango will add an R/T Plus trim that is going to gain much of the luxury options that make the cut for the higher trims.

What Comes with the R/T Plus?

Drivers looking to opt in to a vehicle that supplies luxurious features, but don’t want to go to the highest trim sets can look no further than the R/T Plus when the Durango SUV arrives for the 2022 model year. The equipment added to the Technology Group includes the adaptive cruise control feature, safety features like forward collision warning, advanced brake assist support, lane departure warning and makes the drive of a Durango that much more enjoyable. However, this is a group add-on, as features can be opted for or not, as owners can also decide on the Premium Interior Group that adds an upgraded instrument panel for owners. A suede headliner is also included with perks that make life easier to safely drive like Safety and Security Systems’ blind-spot detection. The power sunroof makes for a stunning appearance feature that is one of the many perks afforded with the Premium Interior Group. Owners have luxurious add-ons that include the 19-speaker, 825-watt Harman Kardon audio system, plus the Nappa leather seating and among the sharper looking SUV interiors on the market.

An SUV Fit For A King

When opting for the Durango, a massive-interior is provided that includes seating for seven comfortably, with space for more. We are not sure if there will be a return for large second-row captain’s chairs for the R/T Plus, but the option is a feature for the higher trims. For the rear-wheel-drive version of the 2022 Dodge Durango R/T Plus, the price is set at $53,820 MSRP (Plus destination fees). For those that want to get started on driving a new Dodge Durango, speak with us at Miami Lakes Automall today to get the holiday season started off in a marvelous way. While we await for the 2022 model year vehicles, like the exciting 2022 Dodge Challenger muscle car, we have plenty of options for our customers to get the right fit for what they want today.

NASCAR Removed Dodge’s Fastest Car Once Half A Century Ago

Thursday, November 18th, 2021

History reminds us sometimes when humans are too successful; one such example is the Dodge Daytona that was once banned by NASCAR for simply being too fast. Now, in the 1960’s NASCAR and racing was widely popular and successful, so how could a vehicle that was just as remarkable face any restrictions? The Dodge Daytona car hit speeds over 200 mph and was no longer allowed to compete in NASCAR event racing. This was first done by legendary NASCAR driver Buddy Baker who was the one to go over 200 miles per hour on March 24, 1970, at the famed Talladega racing track. After that, the Dodge Daytona proceeded to win six more races. After this success, NASCAR officials were left with no choice but alter the rules to ban cars with certain attributes, like the huge wing these Dodge vehicles held. New aero rules were put in place by 1971, but vehicles like the 1969 Dodge Daytona were able to seriously earn some speedy races before winning and taking out all the competition.

Dodge Removed From NASCAR After Success

With the rear stabilizer wing, fender-mounted cooling scoops for braking, and a sheet metal cowl over the front grille, this was a vehicle built for game-changing speed. Keep in mind, the 1969 Dodge Daytona did that with style as the rules changed to prohibit this vehicle from hitting the race track. Dodge and Plymouth were the two brands that were told they could not use their vehicles to race competitively. The Superbird from Plymouth was the other aero-vehicle that was completely banned at all NASCAR events. They were simply ahead of their time, but now Dodge has found a path to get customers interested in reliving their winning ways with faster than ever vehicles and a modern touch tossed in as well to boot. Don’t forget, Dodge loves their special edition throwbacks built on their modern platform

Looking Back At the 1969 Dodge Daytona and Most Recent Daytona Offering

Readers should note, the 1969 Dodge Daytona was one of only 500 vehicles produced and can find prices that cost over $150,000 MSRP now. Dodge paid homage to the iconic Daytona racing cars of that era with an available special-edition 2020 Dodge Charger Daytona widebody muscle car with the newest platform getting a unique Daytona appearance. This new Dodge Charger package arrived with a price tag over $110,000 MSRP, but for those looking for them, they were quite a rare discovery. Just as unique as the 1969 Daytona is to find today. The folks at Mecum Auctions and businesses like theirs are where drivers look to find these restored classics, but for those that want to own the most aggressive and new Dodge vehicles, rush to Miami Lakes Automall today to get the process started. 

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 Promotes A Slew of Sleek New Appearance Packages

Thursday, October 28th, 2021

Dodge has been doing rather well lately, but they aren’t stopping with new rollouts any time soon. Dodge is ready to push sales towards their Dodge Charger and Challenger. The 2022 Dodge muscle car lineup will receive new styling packages that include the HEMI Orange and SRT Black Package appearance packages. The 2022 Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger look extra sleek with the dry-paint job with a unique single line that goes off center from the front bumper to the back bumper. The distinctive look of the HEMI Orange adds orange accents outside the muscle car with full-length outstretched orange accent stripe. Orange stitching can be observed on the flat-bottom steering wheel, console lid, instrument panel, across the doors and armrests, plus the shifter boot. There’s one more package that is also a particularly popular choice for Dodge muscle car drivers.

Go Widebody For Greater Grip + Additional Style

Owners can opt for a Scat Pack Widebody package that includes orange Brembo six-piston calipers that are matched with carbon black 20-inch Warp Speed wheels. The theme and detail provided with these packages are a throwback to the 1950s classic HEMI engine vehicles. Customers will note the bolstered seating has the embroidered Dodge logos. The Scat Pack Widebody includes a “392” added to the instrumental panel as a badge and costs $1,500. The black-out interior accents are found on the vent rings and the cup holders as well. Both the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger offer the “Widebody” trim treatment. 

Owners can opt for the SRT Black package that will turn the SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye trims into even more sharp and sophisticated looking muscle cars. The SRT Black appearance kit is just $695 and Dodge has announced the Dodge Durango SRT will gain this package as well. The SRT exterior badging is found on the fender, grille, as well as on an added spoiler or decklid piece for the Charger. 

Not Just Attractive, Wicked Fast, Too

The styling only helps owners decide to go with one of these options. After all, the performance is already high-octane and invigorating for drivers as the remarkable handling makes all the difference. That difference is helping Dodge move ahead of rival brands as sales have gone higher and surpassed the Mustang so far in 2021. Check out the freshest Dodge muscle cars anticipating our customers test-drive and ownership or leasing journey with our help today. We invite our readers to experience the newest vehicles we offer today as the surge of Dodge EVs is still a few years out.

Dodge Outpaces Competition Everywhere

Friday, October 22nd, 2021
EV Miami Lakes Automall

It’s almost 2022 and Dodge is preparing a significant push ahead into the limelight this month and the forthcoming year. Dodge will enable the brand to advance forward to the new EV future anticipating customers. Stellantis is evolving into its own with the report of an agreement for a joint venture opportunity with LG Energy Solution to produce new battery cells and modules made in the United States. The North American plant will grow in the automotive capital of the nation, Detroit, Michigan. The production volume is set at 40 gigawatts hours for the product. The goal is set to have ground broken in the second quarter of 2022. The production of the EV batteries is set for the beginning of 2024, precisely when Dodge is going to launch the brand’s first-ever, all-electric muscle car. The Dodge Challenger has made waves for decades in this industry, as they are managing sales over the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro, and Chevy Corvette through three quarters in 2021 total sales. The Dodge Challenger is treading forward of the Ford Mustang by almost all of 2021.

Ford and Chevrolet Know They Are Losing To Dodge

For any one that looks at the numbers, Dodge has moved ahead. The Dodge Challenger muscle car has sold exactly 44,142 vehicles a bit ahead of the Mustang’s 41,065 vehicles purchased. Not only is Dodge moving ahead of the Chevrolet Camaro as well, which only has sold 15,084 vehicles in 2021.  The Dodge brand hit a top spot on J. D. Power’s Initial Quality Study for the second-year-in-a-row. As far as the new Dodge EV, we are still not assured if the nameplate will be a Challenger, Charger, or something else remains concealed. Aside from this vehicle, the new Stellantis plant will manufacture batteries for Stellantis factories established throughout the region for EVs and plug-in hybrid vehicles. 

“Today’s announcement is further proof that we are deploying our aggressive electrification road map and are following through on the commitments we made during our EV Day event,” said Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares.

Experience the Thrill of Current Dodge Vehicles Today

Dodge is moving ahead for the customer and critics alike. Despite the onset of the future Dodge EV collection, we will nevertheless sell impressive muscle cars of today, as Dodge CEO has affirmed multiple times. 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 keen on the product. Customers that are looking for the appropriate choice, enjoy the sound of a fierce Dodge engine that we have ready to go. While we expect for more electrified news, buy or lease with us to find the Dodge that is atop the automotive world currently and ready to move.

Dodge Hornet Is Set For 2023 Model Year And Debuts In 2022

Thursday, October 7th, 2021
Dodge Hornet Miami Lakes Automall

Well, well, well, Dodge is making the Dodge Hornet after all. We had long speculated, most recently earlier this summer in 2021 about the return of the Dodge Hornet’s famed nameplate making a comeback. Now we know more about the production coming towards the Stellantis owned Dodge brand making its latest SUV a Hornet offering. Rumors have listed the Hornet to be a crossover effort that will be the first all-new vehicle option since the 2013 Dodge Dart first made its arrival. However, small cars have become a thing of the past, especially non-electric small cars. The SUV and pickup segment is still high on gasoline powertrains and popularity for now, but this will pass as well as the entire automotive industry urgently opts for more savvy and fuel-efficient ways to drive forward. 

News On the Upcoming Dodge Hornet SUV EV

The last report to come out has the Dodge Hornet to use the Alfa Romeo Tonale as the basis for the vehicle’s distinct look and feel. The arrival of the Hornet will help the brand offer a new SUV for the first time in nearly a decade. This upcoming spring we expect all the details to be shared. The Hornet will have a plug-in hybrid powertrain and offer a turbocharged 2.0-Liter inline up as the gasoline engine; two choices for customers to select from. The base trim is set to offer impressive returns, but those looking for all the bells and whistles will have to opt for the high-end Dodge products. The 2023 Dodge Hornet should arrive by late 2022 as the production is slated to go with the Alfa Romeo Tonale product. This is still reported by Mopar Insiders and not official through Dodge, but we still see the creation as a serious possibility. 

Dodge Goes All-In Towards EV Creations

Dodge is ready to provide a new class of vehicles with the Dodge muscle car that is unnamed, but set for an electric vehicle trim, whether it’s the Dodge Charger or Dodge Challenger or a new entry. Consider the Dodge brand and its plans to offer a future EV for a muscle car? While this might seem like a wild idea, the brand is focused and is insisting on offering a Dodge EV trim for every vehicle at some point this decade. The goal to offer more PHEVs is growing into a fast reality for the Dodge and Stellantis automakers. Let’s just hope customers are on board with getting the cleanest, most powerful new electric vehicles set to be made in the United States soon enough.

The Dodge Journey Is Sticking Around Worldwide

Thursday, October 7th, 2021

The Dodge Journey might have been moved from the United States, but the vehicle isn’t done with Stellantis just yet. The 2022 Dodge Journey has returned to be sold in North America, but this vehicle will only be sold in Mexico and China as well. The vehicle has made its way out to China to be produced for future entries. Back in 2008, when the Dodge Journey was first released, the production growth for the vehicle swelled. By 2020, the Journey was on the way out, but only in the United States. These Journey vehicles are to be made in Hangzhou, China. They will be made by a Chinese automaker known as GAC. 

More On the Future of the Dodge Journey

The joint-venture between China and the Stellantis brand will help grow the Dodge brand elsewhere, specifically China. The SUV is going to carry a 1.5-Liter turbocharged engine that offers 169 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque. The powertrain is paired to a six-speed automatic four-wheel-drive vehicle. Three trims will be offered including the SXT, Sport, and GT trims. The GT will supply larger 19″ wheels, a 360-degree camera and 12.3″ digital gauge cluster, plus hands-free trunk release. There’s still a  focus on the Dodge Journey as it stays around for a new market. This is news to the board at hand spending the money to make this venture work between the Dodge brand and GAC. 

“(This is) a new way for us to ship our vehicles to the overseas market by cooperating with international automobile giants,” said General Manager of GAC Motor Zeng Hebin. 

Production Continues Through 2021

GAC is aiming to sell about 4,000 of these Dodge Journey vehicles. GAC is responsible for providing vehicles to 26 countries with over 35,000 vehicles sold overseas and exported in just 2020 alone. Considering this kind of expansion, the Journey will continue to make its name known. The nameplate will exist for at least the 2022 model year and perhaps beyond. Dodge is used to making vehicles that can last the test of time, look at how well the Dodge Charger has fared with plenty of classic Dodge muscle cars still around and the newest Dodge muscle cars have never been better. Come check out what we have to offer our costumes and learn about the next steps Dodge is making towards offering a brand new Dodge electric muscle car by 2024. The automotive landscape will look very different by then. At Miami Lakes Automall, we could even have a brand new Dodge SUV ready for our customers soon. For now, shop with us to find the Dodge vehicle that works best.

How Much Faster Is the Dodge Charger Today Vs 50 Years Ago?

Thursday, September 23rd, 2021

1971 Miami Lakes Automall

The Dodge Charger of today is quite an exhilarating experience for owners and passengers alike. While fewer cars are on the road today, even fewer are packed with the kind of engineering feats offered by the Dodge Charger muscle car. The modern Charger is exceptional and definitely different from the famed Dodge Charger vehicles of old. But just how much faster and stronger is the 2021 Dodge Charger compared to the beloved Charger muscle cars from half a century ago? Does the 1971 Dodge Charger hold up? The Charger from 1971 was new and ran through the 1974 model. The price back then was a staggeringly low $3,775. A rear-wheel drive car with a V8 engine that offers 230 horsepower in the base trim and as much as 425 horsepower at the high end. Dodge manufactured exactly 82,114 of these classic muscle cars.

Improvements and Added Value In the Charger 

The Dodge brand is currently enjoying awards that have long been established as some of the most important in the industry: winning a top spot of the J. D. Power Initial Quality Study for 2021. After winning the top spot in 2020, lately the most recent Dodge muscle cars have more than putting a smile on the face of owners. The 2021 Dodge Charger is packed with power, as much as 292 horsepower starting in the base Charger SRT trim and as much as 797 horsepower offered in the top-tier, 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye. We can’t say enough good things about this absolutely gorgeous and stunning Dodge muscle car. 

So Which Dodge Charger Is Stronger Between the Two?

For those that are keeping score, that’s a difference of 372 horsepower between the two highest trims for the respective Charger muscle cars of 1971 versus 2021. The Charger is roughly 1,500 pounds heavier in weight compared to the finish offered in the 1971 model year. Today’s Charger ranges in the 4,000 to 4,586 range while the 19171 model year Charger hit in the low 3,000 pound range. Despite the added weight, the modern Charger enjoys the perks of the latest technology to produce faster quarter-times. The 19171 Charger could go 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds and finish the quarter-mile in 13.73 seconds at 104 mph. Ready to be impressed? The 2021 Dodge Charger can go from 0 to 60mph in only 4.3 seconds and hits a 12.4 quarter-mile time.

The starting price for a new 2021 Dodge Charger goes for $31,125 MSRP (Plus destination fee). While the Dodge brand looks ahead to offering the upcoming Dodge EV muscle car for a new generation of buyers. These innovative choices are going to lead the way for all automotive brands including the Dodge brand. 

Something Exciting Comes Your Way 

Get ready to make heads turn with our strong muscle line-up of new Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger models. Our sales staff is ready to help with any leasing, buying or trade-in options.

Dodge Showcases Latest SUV Option Set For Mexico And More?

Friday, September 10th, 2021

New Dodge vehicles are ready at the premiere Dodge Dealer superstore in South Florida located at Miami Lakes Automall. There’s a reason our customers come to us to experience new Dodge muscle cars, SUVs, and service their vehicles with our service team. The landscape of fastest and impressive muscle cars might seem like a dream come true when spectators look back at the current line-up offered today. As electric vehicles become more the center of the attention, with Dodge announcing the future including a new EV option for their muscle car lineup by 2024, we are witnessing the glory days of gasoline vehicles. Dodge might have doubled down on providing an electrified experience for the future, but today we can offer reasons why owning a new Dodge muscle car is the right choice for customers that want the thrill of a heart-racing performance vehicle that comes with impressive handling and power.

The Most Important Facts When Car Buying

The most impressive facts for new car shoppers to take note of when buying a vehicle; checking to see if there are awards that showcase how responsible a brand is at providing excellence from day one of vehicle ownership. Among those vehicles, Dodge is actually ahead of nearly every other automotive brand earning the top spot in 2020 and 2nd place finish in 2021 according to J. D. Power’s Initial Quality Study. This is just one important step to take note of when buying a vehicle. 

Another Dodge SUV Coming Soon

Dodge goes the extra lengths to provide customers with the newest technologies and equipping the newest Dodge muscle car lineup with an enhanced product line. Fans and buyers alike are more than likely happier than most owners of new vehicles. The current generation of Dodge muscle cars (both the Charger and Challenger) are currently finishing the last few years of the third-generation. However, we know the brand is seeing record sales for these muscle cars. The Dodge brand has recently shown hints and development photos of a new SUV aimed at the Mexican and South American market. The new Dodge SUV is rooted from the GAC GS5 SUV that is produced by Stellantis (parent company of Dodge) and sold in China only. The GAC GS5 can be found in some South American countries and has a sturdy turbocharged 1.5-Liter four-cylinder engine that nets owners 150 horsepower and 173 lb-ft of torque.

Could we see this new SUV arrive in the United States? While we have a fond place for the beloved Dodge Challenger product and invite our readers to come check out all the latest Dodge vehicles ready for a test-drive, we would love to see another vehicle join the Dodge Durango in the SUV segment. We are looking at a price range that is lower than the Durango in those markets. The Durango sells for $44,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee) for the South American countries that will receive the next Dodge SUV. The Dodge crossover segment lost the Dodge Journey, but time will tell if we see an American version of the newest Dodge SUV.

Dodge, Stellantis Earn Top Spot On J.D. Power IQS For 2021

Friday, September 3rd, 2021

With the future of the Dodge brand moving towards electric vehicles, 2021 might go down as one of the fastest flying years on record, along with the record amount of Atlantic tropical storms. After last year’s seemingly never-ending to now being in the last season before 2022, we’ve come quite a long way. And during this whole experience, the Dodge brand has earned results to inspire buyers while hoisting another award. This time the trophy comes from the 2021 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study that lists Dodge as the brand that finishes second on a list that includes all the top automotive brands. Dodge won the top spot last year and isn’t far off this year. A 223-question study was given to new car owners who felt the most positive and pleasant initial encounter was with these brands. Each year, this survey helps new car shoppers reflect on their experience with a vehicle over the course of the first few months of ownership. 

“If you start with strong design, and follow that up with discipline on the plant floor, you get the kind of results we’re seeing today,” metro Detroit native Mark Champine, head of North America customer experience at Stellantis, said in a news release.

Into the Numbers of 2021 J.D. Power’s IQS

Each year, this J.D. Power survey helps new car shoppers reflect on their experience with a vehicle over the course of the first few months of ownership (the first ninety days of ownership to be specific). This is when problems should least likely appear and buyers want to know what to expect; if any problems appear, what they liked most, and other important aspects of purchasing a vehicle. Based on the problems listed per 100 vehicles, the system includes ways to gauge gain information on serious mechanical issues to problems with the infotainment system. Dodge owners only experience 139 complaints per 100 vehicles. The survey includes tens of thousands of responses each year. A big issue is smartphone connectivity across many brands. 

“They’ve done a particularly good job of preventing problems from occurring. The key is design quality. Most of the problems people report are not because vehicles aren’t built properly. The majority of problems are because vehicles aren’t designed properly or with the customer in mind. Often, the factories get the rough end of this. There is a problem with the navigation system, for instance. The assembly plants are responsible just for installing it into the vehicle. It’s not their fault the navigation system doesn’t work,” said David Sargent, vice president of automotive quality at J.D. Power, told the Free Press.
