Dodge Showing Off More Details Involving Electric Vehicle Plans

With the future of the Dodge brand moving towards electric vehicles, we have a tight window of time before the fastest Dodge options may actually be electrified! While we are excited for the changes, we are also tempted to tell our customers to snag up the Dodge collection as it currently exists. The high-octane Dodge muscle cars like the Dodge Charger and Challenger are exceptional beasts with their available V8 powertrains. The new muscle cars that are going to be made by 2024 will include the entirely electric Dodge vehicle. There are reports that the EV might carry the “Fratzog” logo for all electric vehicles. The Fratzog is a made up word by a designer first used in 1962 through 1976 by the brand. We saw the Dodge brand bring this logo back when unveiling the 2021 EV Day. The concept vehicle has drawn a large amount of interest from fans. One fan is actually the CEO of Dodge, Tim Kuniskis.

“It damn near looks like something that Doc Brown would have done. It looks very futuristic and electrified, and it’s our history, which is what we do,” said Tim Kuniskis. Referring to Doc Brown, the well-known fictional character from Back to the Future. 

What Dodge Vehicle Will Gain the EV Treatment First?

We have only seen teasers of what this vehicle will be as well as no clue what the nameplate that will carry this upcoming, first-ever Dodge EV. Perhaps the Dodge Challenger will gain the EV, but we can’t say for certain. Keep in mind that the Challenger body has remained the same since the brand brought the vehicle back in 2008; this is the same for the Charger since 2006. Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, has invested upwards of $35.5 billion through 2035 for electric vehicles, which will include plug-in and hybrid vehicles. A plug-in hybrid is due out next year, so we are about a year from seeing this Dodge vehicle hit stores.Dodge understandably won’t just become an EV company solely or have their branding focus solely on EVs.

“We don’t want them to look radically different because we want you all to be part of the same thing. So, we said, ‘OK,’ if you have electrification in your car, we don’t want you to be screaming, ’I have electrification,” Kuniskis said, referring to Dodge’s “Brotherhood of Muscle” community.

Dodge Is Pushing Ahead With Electric Plans, Revealing New Details

Friday, August 20th, 2021

The particulars of all the innovations coming to Dodge have somewhat been announced with its “Never Lift” program being recently declared. The sixth-annual Dodge Roadkill Nights, an automotive celebration held in Pontiac, Michigan, took place on the third weekend of August earlier this month. During the event, a press conference was held that gave Dodge fans, enthusiasts, plus media workers the chance to talk to the Dodge brass about anything their hearts desired. One such subject made was the electric plans that have been teased and announced to a degree for the muscle car brand. The growth of Stellantis is directly tied to the electric future of the Dodge brand.  

“When you make a big change, there’s going to be people that just aren’t going to follow you, at least initially. But a lot of those people will return eventually when they see we’re serious, and we’re going to be Dodge first,” remarked Tim Kuniskis. 

More News Coming Ahead of the EV Debut In 2024

The calendar of introductions for the Dodge brand will include official dates for the trim line changes to each particular Dodge vehicle in the subsequent months, new appearance-based trims that will offer meaningful upgrades as well as the eventual date for the end of the current platform used on their muscle cars. The Charger and Challenger have been built and ridden on the same platform since their debut the decade before last (2006 and 2008 respectively). We have already discovered the latest Dodge vehicle, the first all-electric Dodge muscle car set to become introduced by 2024. This date will come by sooner than most customers realize!

“The new car comes in 2024. We didn’t say that the current cars are going to die in 2024. There might be a little overlap, but you’re not going to have years and years and years of the classic and the new one at the same time.” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge CEO

When To Expect More Dodge Muscle News

The fourth quarter of 2021 begins in just over a month and a half and at some point is when we will see what is to come from the brand. Dodge saw their Challenger surpass the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro earlier in 2021. So progress has continued for the brand in 2021. The forthcoming “Never Lift” program is sure to be a success for all Dodge fans and owners alike. Keep in mind, the celebrated run for the mean Dodge muscle machines has persisted as long as it has this time around thanks to high-powered manufacturing and plans that includes over 800 horsepower stock in some of these vehicles. The next two years will include more than trim packages with appearance upgrades; as we’ve been told before. Will there be something to rival the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye? We are anticipating more accounts on the subject, but let us offer some exceptionally quick options at Miami Lakes Automall.

We Are the Right Place to Get Your Vehicle Serviced

Thursday, August 12th, 2021

Shopping for a new or pre-owned vehicle is something we can help with, but our readers should also know about the care we can give Dodge vehicles. We are here to help, not just with selling a vehicle, but with servicing vehicles as well. Compared to small shops that might not be able to impress, we are ready to transform vehicles into the healthy rides they should be this summer and beyond at our service center. Let us look at the main reasons to go to us versus the other businesses open. Allow us to break everything down for our customers.

No Rush At the Local Shop

Smaller shops are used to only handling a few clients a day and average fewer vehicles getting worked on. Many body shops have more scattered workers and less capital to use on education for modern vehicles. Specialists at Miami Lakes Automall frequently are trained and familiarized with newer models. We take satisfaction in extending superior assistance and servicing for vehicles we have. A smaller shop might be able to do the job, but how fast and productive are they at working a rush of business? Might these more modest repair shops hit some problems we might not? Are there some corners to save money or time? They might, but we are not one of those places. 

We Keep Our Customers Informed

Our business practices include reaching out to our customers and keeping them informed. The more economical local auto shop might only have enough time to let you know they won’t be finishing the tiny job you needed, but we’re more than likely to have the job done accurately and appropriately. We won’t try to do a job we can’t manage, as we are not too proud to give an accurate time for most jobs before we even go forward. The perks concerning a proper repair or service center can stretch out way further than most can imagine. Knowing where to take a vehicle to get back to normal is just the base goal we have, but ask us how to improve a vehicle’s performance and the sky’s the limit at Miami Lakes Automall. 

What Happens Without Servicing?

Proper care of a vehicle is a very important choice an owner must be aware of. According to CarCare.org, a quarter of vehicles driving right now have low or dirty engine oil. Think of the engine as the most important part of a vehicle; because it is. The powertrain is responsible for making the vehicle move and relies on many parts and fluids to keep it running smoothly. We know the issues of dealing with poor engine quality as we help owners and their vehicles that have engines long overdue for oil changes, maintenance, and the occasional engine failure. What else should owners look out for? 

Insured To the Fullest

Think a small auto body shop is completely insured? Want to find out when it is too late? We are covered to make sure our shop is entirely safe and sound and that means well-trained employees and an insurance practice. Feel free to ask us about how we have gone the extra mile to create a secure environment and remain protected for not only our business, but for our customers as well. We at Miami Lakes Automall 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!

We Are Here To Help Our Customers Today, Tomorrow, and Beyond

We’re here to assist our customers in many ways, including going out for a test-drive with one of our vehicles from our wide new vehicle inventory. Whether you’re in Doral, Kendall, North Miami, Homestead, we’re happy to help our South Florida and local Miami customers. We’re professional and here to assist our customers with all buying, leasing, or trade-in offers. 
We have a whole bunch for others to choose from. We can also help our customers out with any auto financing support they might need as well. Don’t forget we have a trained service team that can help with an online appointment to get started on all maintenance work and repairs. We look forward to being your center for all things automotive, even during these unprecedented times!

Dodge Revels From Stellantis EV Day 2021

Thursday, August 5th, 2021
Stellantis EV Day 2021 Miami Lakes Automall

Stellantis, parent company of Dodge, recently held their Stellantis EV Day 2021 meeting that revealed all of the plans going forward for their various brands. Dodge is one brand that will gain an EV for the first time and see an aggressive approach towards winning over new customers for the famed muscle car brand. We look forward to presenting all the results for the brand as we’ve learned more about the technology we can expect. Allow us to breakdown the bricks that Dodge is currently laying down for buyers and the electric future of the Dodge brand.

Dodge Aims For Electric Transformation

The next phase for the Dodge brand involves ensuring that its EV motives don’t leave behind the power and top-notch engineering that has made the brand a staple for so many decades. We look ahead to the upcoming electric Dodge muscle car. Will this muscle car be a Challenger, a Charger, or perhaps even a Barracuda? Dodge is coming closer to where the company is looking ahead towards. The biggest goal for the Stellantis growth will be how much they gain in terms of EV battery technology; the goal will be to offer costs for the EV battery with prices to go down by 40 percent from 2020 prices to 2024 prices. The next price lowering will be an additional 20 percent shrinkage by 2030.  

“All aspects of the battery pack play a role in reducing the costs, optimizing the overall pack, simplifying the format of the modules, increasing the size of the battery cells and upgrading the battery chemistry. Stellantis intends to maximize the full value of the battery life cycle through repair, remanufacturing, second-life use and recycling, as well as ensure a sustainable system that prioritizes customer needs and environmental concerns.” According to a statement released by Stellantis.

The Stellantis Group Eyes Improves 

The Stellantis group has committed to offering the best-in-class fully electrified solutions. The newest platforms that will be designed for a long life vai software and hardware upgrades. Solid state battery technology is expected to be introduced as a plan in 2026. Clean technology for a new generation of buyers will help lead the way for the brand. The next steps towards turning in sustainable mobility with rapid charge vehicles. Stellantis has promised to meet these various demands from the portfolio of customers that have requested a leap in EV growth. The current track is to build a high-energy-density option and a nickel cobalt-free alternative at some point between now and 2024. These choices are going to lead the way for the various brands including the Dodge brand.

The Dodge Concept That Didn’t See the Light of Day Till Years Later

The long history of the Dodge brand goes back many decades, but regarding one particular nameplate, the Charger, we are going to highlight one concept that debuted but did not turn into what was originally shown to customers. While many Dodge vehicles have come and gone obvious, but the brand first brought out the Charger in 1999. As automakers look to the past sometimes when restoring an old nameplate or basing a new vehicle with cues from a former star vehicle, we can always look back to acknowledge the famed records of the Dodge brand. Long before the intentions of building a new EV Dodge concepts, we had the Charger concept that debuted before the world over 21 years ago.

Observing At the 1999 Dodge Charger R/T Concept

The modern buzz to hit the interwebz is the sports car that was the 1999 Dodge Charger RT concept. Back then, the Dodge Charger R/T was first rolled out a firm seven years before the Dodge brand would offer the same body in the Dodge Charger today. As the 2021 Dodge Charger, we are used to impressive handling, speed, and high-octane fun. We also can admire the perks that have come as a consequence of the Dodge brand producing back the 2021 Dodge Challenger. But, that story is for a different day; let’s get into what made the 1999 Dodge concept so attractive.

Dodge Brand’s 1999 Take With the Charger

Back when the entire Dodge brand was headed by the Chrysler brand that desired to put together the Dodge brand in a new light with many ideas that were never made, including a Jeepster concept. This Charger vehicle would end up as flagship vehicle for the brand, but that wasn’t obvious till the vehicle was highly-sought after in 2006. The Charger was first thought of as a sports car, not quite a muscle car, and the gas mileage was somewhat greater than many would imagine. The debut was at the 1999 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. This Dodge Charger concept was more like a Dodge Viper with its silky and extended exterior appearance. The R/T concept had a 4.7-Liter V8 naturally-aspirated engine. The total output was 325 horsepower and a stunning look that for some reason wasn’t turned into a production car.

Dodge added this vehicle to its lineup eventually, but the famed concept ended up in one video game despite never being put out. The Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition allowed this car as a possible choice for gamers back in 2005, a full six years later. The Dodge brand has tons of experience with building up the Charger to become one of the most celebrated muscle cars ever made. Want to test-drive one now? We can help make that potential at Miami Lakes Automall today!

Dodge SpeedKore Creation Shows Up In Fast and the Furious 9

Tuesday, July 6th, 2021
Speedkore Miami Lakes Automall

The SpeedKore variant of the Dodge Charger is a renovated 1968 model year with an appended supercharged 707-horsepower Dodge Hellcat 6.2-Liter V8 powertrain. The custom Dodge muscle car includes a MagnaFlow exhaust and gated-manual Graziano transaxle from the newest Lamborghini Gallardo offers high-performance intercoolers, front-mount Saldana performance radiator, and an amped-up experience for the movie versions driven in the Fast and the Furious 9. The ninth installment of the former street racing movie franchise will showcase this extraordinary SpeedKore Charger on full show. This preposterous muscle car is a Dodge fan-favorite and we acquired quite a lot of news about this piece of modern movie history.

1968 Dodge Charger Revised For Fast and the Furious 9

Designed with a full carbon fiber body with a Hellacious custom wide-body approach with Sean Smith Designs. The Brembo brakes afford a top-of-the-line braking system for users to experience. This project was a welcomed sight for the creators and fans of the Fast and the Furious franchise alike. When talking on account of the upgraded 1968 Dodge muscle car, this is what was shared about the behind-the-scenes manner and thought that went into producing this unique movie vehicle. 

“This Charger is one of our most extreme builds to date. After commissioning renowned designer Sean Smith to design the car and working with F9’s picture vehicle coordinator Dennis McCarthy to build the nine chassis and vehicle bodies for the film, we wanted to bring the movie magic of F9 to life,” president and owner of SpeedKore Jim Kacmarcik said in a release.

We’ve Learned Dodge Is Going To Build Six All-Electric Vehicles

Dodge Prepares To Build Multiple Electric Vehicles And More Plans Revealed

Thursday, June 17th, 2021

There is a feeling within the Dodge community that the V8 engines of today are going to skyrocket in value. The most obvious reason is Dodge is going out of the gasoline-focused V8 powertrains business and headed to an electric future. There have been some new reports that though the electrification plans are new, they are going full force into the commitment towards building the brand with EV intentions for each vehicle. The report names Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, as the force behind turning Dodge into the premiere brand among its many options. 

Six All-Electric Vehicles Are Being Made

Dodge is rumored to have as many as “six all-electric vehicles currently in the styling studio in Auburn Hills, Michigan.” There is also news that “at least one, but probably several plug-in hybrids” are slated to be created. Whether this is concept vehicles or the turning of a new leaf for the Dodge brand, the report from The Detroit Bureau has Dodge making big changes. While this news is nothing new, we now have some more light shed on what is expected to change for the brand. The days of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon or even the follow up vehicles in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye or Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock, we can expect changes to start showing by next year. Dodge will have no problem doing all the hard work towards its electric future alone. According to another report, the Dodge brand has passed on getting any assistance from Tesla.

The Final Days of Purely Gasoline Driven Muscle?

The 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger will offer a variant of change as the new-generation is expected to show. The other brands under the guidance of Stellantis have already pushed out the latest plug-in hybrid or fully electric vehicles in the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel and Jeep Wrangler 4xe trim. The best EVs in the world could one day arrive in the form of the greatest muscle cars available; all included from the Dodge brand! Keep in mind that Stellantis has already decided to move the Dodge brand into a new plan that was revealed earlier this month when plans were described, “Between 2025 and 2030, our product range will gradually become purely electric. This will be a radical change,” Stellantis CEO Oilvier Francois. The future is rapidly approaching and our goal is to remain as prepared as we are today at providing our customers with the newest Dodge vehicles.

Dodge Hornet Returning To the Fold?

Friday, June 11th, 2021
Hornet Miami Lakes Automall

Hornet Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge is revitalizing an older nameplate in the Dodge Hornet. This vehicle will join the currently short list of Dodge vehicles. The Dodge brand arrived with a Dodge Hornet concept that was shown off in 2006, but it never debuted. 2006 was the same year the Dodge Charger was reintroduced to the world. The 2006 Hornet concept was produced with hopes to see the prototype turn into a production vehicle in 2008 with the Challenger. Dodge at that time was about to start with a big push in the European markets and aspired to thrust the Hornet by 2010. The platform of the Hornet would end up being the same one applied to the Alfa Romeo Giulietta. This meant the Dodge sedan would offer this “C-Evo” platform and notwithstanding the Hornet name being trademarked in 2011, they opted to name the vehicle the Dodge Dart instead. The Dodge Dart is no longer offered by Dodge, but they still produce two cars and the popular SUV, the Dodge Durango, alongside the famed Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger muscle cars.

Added Production Choices Are Being Revealed

The COVID-19 outbreak slowed the production for Dodge for three months. This was something that hindered the Dodge Hornet, as Alfa Romeo’s new CEO, previously of Peugeot, new expectations of enhanced performance from the Tonale’s PHEV drivetrain. As of April, Automotive News reports, Stellantis aimed to commence Tonale production in March 2022 and start sales on June 4 of 2022. This would indicate that the Dodge Hornet’s arrival could be in around the same time frame. In a story written by Passione Auto Italiane, the most current Dodge vehicles are expected to be produced alongside the forthcoming Alfa Romeo Tonale at the Pomigliano D’Arco plant in Italy. We are always looking ahead to what Dodge will provide customers next, but the new era of Dodge vehicles is coming sooner than later; starting with the Dodge Hornet we hope.

Likelihood of the Dodge Hornet

The ongoing rumor for the 2022 Dodge Hornet also insists that the Hornet will be produced on the sub-Stelvio crossover. As such, it will be using the same turbo 2.0-Liter GME engine. While the news didn’t discuss anything about a hybrid variant of the Dodge crossover, we can presume so considering the Alfa Romeo Tonale will produce a PHEV version, but this is the notion that affected its schedule. There are remarkable expectations that Dodge might even go the route its fellow Stellantis brand, Jeep, is headed with a fully electric vehicle approaching. Ultimately, we can expect that to happen, but currently, the current age of Dodge vehicles is nevertheless here for now. When looking at the 2021 model year Dodge muscle cars, and we are still grateful for the heart-racing power and enjoyment brought to us by the Dodge brand.

Dodge Ready To Make Durango Faster For 2022 Model Year

Friday, June 4th, 2021

Good news for those who were wondering if the 2020 global pandemic was still affecting the automotive industry. For some companies that might be the case, but Dodge has expanded its Dodge Durango production by over 50% in terms of volume. If that doesn’t answer the question for the fact the pandemic has come to somewhat of a halt, Dodge is prepared to continue offering the fast and furious Durango. The top-tier three-row large Dodge SUV option is preparing for the next model year with greater perks offered to customers.

Durango Long Established Perks: Speed and Power

The 2022 Dodge Durango has improved the power and the speed. The optional 6.4-Liter HEMI V8 engine offers 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The top speed of 180 mph is the fastest option for the SUV segment. The high-performance SUV has comfortable aspects all throughout the center including among many features; a 19-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system, a power sunroof, plus a rear-seat DVD system with the Premium Interior package are all excellent choices. A tech package extends advances in safety including blind-spot and rear cross-traffic detection. For those who want a large-size SUV that can fit eight safely, this is the choice to secure. Owners can attest, the Dodge Durango SRT is the quickest three-row SUV on the market with its extraordinary 4.4 second 0-60 time. Of course, while the SRT trim presents all these features, all Durango trims offer a lot for customers to appreciate. 

The End of the Short-Lived Durango SRT Hellcat 

The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat trim is off the board for the 2022 Durango however. New regulations have been added to the Durango including limiting the evaporative emissions of the vehicles, holding back the chance to continue the Durango SRT Hellcat. The upcoming production of the Durango will include all the trims from the previous year, except for a lone 3,000 vehicles that will complete the order of the fastest-three-row production SUV on the market. 

“When we switch to ’22 model year, there’s new evaporative emission requirements that come in that the Hellcat engine does not meet in that platform. And with the change in platforms for the next generation Jeep Grand Cherokee, it’s a one year cycle,” said Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis

Dodge Ushering In A New Era For Buyers

Thursday, May 27th, 2021

Promising clues are being reported about the next steps of the Dodge brand. Dodge has determined to put a check on the V8 era that has advanced since Dodge returned the Dodge Charger muscle car for customers in 2006. During the last fifteen years, we’ve observed the increase of some of the most dominant muscle cars in mass production. The 2021 Dodge Charger and 2021 Dodge Challenger are both striking examples of where the brand currently stands, but what can we expect going ahead as the 2020s are already flying by? Early sales in 2021 saw Dodge move vehicles at a higher rate for the Dodge Durango, Charger, and Challenger models. This is a promising display that will empower more buyers to join the Dodge brand. So who is joining Dodge lately?

Dodge Growing With Younger Generation

From sales figures, an apparent trend has taken place for several years. Dodge has led the way with sales for the younger buyers. The Dodge brand knows where the future is headed, as the path towards electric vehicles (EVs) is the goal. Dodge is also aware that compared to rivals, they have the youngest buyers compared to other manufacturers like Chevrolet or Ford. Dodge first noted this a couple of years ago but has followed up with more evidence that they sell their vehicles to “the youngest demographic in the industry” according to Dodge. 

The car-buying demographic that presents most of Dodge’s business is diverse including the second-highest quantity of Asian, African Americans, and Latin buyers according to the Head of the Dodge Brand Sales Operations, Matt McAlear. The broad variety of V6 and V8 powertrains included in Dodge vehicles has pushed sales for years and extends to a new crop of buyers. However, the scope of these vehicles might alter with the renewed focus of Stellantis (parent company of Dodge) as they look to offer more fuel-efficient vehicles. 

2021 Has Proved Some Impressive Success

Dodge has seen an increase in sales that should exceed pre-pandemic numbers set in 2019. Dodge had begun to bring the focus away from creating 800 horsepower vehicles like the Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. However, there was a promise to continue the SRT (Street Racing Technology) vehicles for the near future. While these are the most impressive vehicles for any owner to want, they aren’t meeting the goal of what the future holds for the Dodge brand and its EV intentions.

“There hasn’t been a date drawn in the sand saying you’ll no longer be able to buy an iron block Hemi anymore, but everybody knows it’s coming and they want to enjoy [the engine] while they can. The replacements are going to be so much more exciting,” stated Matt McAlear, Dodge’s head of sales operations.
