Remarkable 1,300 Horsepower Dodge Charger

Wednesday, March 16th, 2022

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 like the 1,000 horsepower engine found in a modified 1970 Dodge Charger or the 1,400 horsepower Dodge SRT Demon made a few years back. We’ve shown off some of the most impressive tuneups that Dodge owners have done to modify and upgrade the stock versions of their Dodge muscle cars. A recent example has come out with Westen Champlin’s new creation where the uniquely modified Dodge Charger has been revealed on their YouTube channel. Built out of passion and using premium Mopar parts to improve the already powerful Dodge muscle sedan, the YouTuber has crafted quite the outlandish Dodge muscle car build. Westen chose to coax a Dodge Charger Hellcat with nearly double the force Dodge supplies customers with, that’s what took this car to an upper echelon.

Dodge Charger Now and Then

Today, the seventh-generation Dodge Charger has been around since 2011 and will be phased out when the newest generation arrives sometime after next year. There was a refresh back in 2015, the same model year as the one this team changed up. Nowadays, the 2022 Dodge Charger starts from $33,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee) with a V6 engine, from $40,000 MSRP customers can acquire the 5.7-Liter V8 R/T version but at $75,000 MSRP the Hellcat sedan is available. Dubbed the HellJet, this outlandish invention supports a uniquely styled khaki green matt paint, a HellJet logo, labeled 777 on the sides, and jet-fighter teeth behind the front wheels. Those wheels are located in black, but the standout feature would have to be the bullhorns up front, though that’s still not all. 

Perks of Something Special and Fierce

Westen does a burnout inside an active garage with exotic cars and has the goods revealed under the hood to reveal a tremendous new powertrain. The HellJet harbors the most recent supercharged 6.2-Liter Hellcat V8 that has also been twin-turbocharged with a Hellion turbo kit for a total of 1300 total horsepower, roughly 583 more horsepower than granted on the standard Dodge Charger Hellcat. They also moved a retired Dodge police vehicle, pushed up the engine output from 370 horsepower from the mid-tier 5.7-Liter V8 engine to a brand new Hellcat engine that delivers 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.The entire build was all done from scratch, each part by part and crafted with time and some love. Owning a vehicle comes with the freedom to drive and enjoy the experience, but don’t put up with nagging noises, on-going engine troubles, or neglecting to tune up and prepare a vehicle for safer travel.

“24 Months of Muscle” Rollout Started

Wednesday, January 26th, 2022
Night Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

For large brands, they know when they are moving past the competition; Dodge is one of those brands. Dodge remains a leader in the driver’s seat within the muscle car segment in 2022. The plans remain to keep this going as the two-year business plan deemed to drive more customers over from other companies has started. This rollout is now known as the 24 Months of Muscle countdown, signifying the last two years before the first official electric muscle car created by the Dodge brand is offered.  

“The Dodge brothers were scrappy go-getters. Never content to follow the trends, they were the seekers of a better, faster, more outrageous way of doing things. And we’re looking to hire someone just like them as an ambassador of Never Lift,” said Tim Kuniskis, CEO of Dodge.

Dodge Gearing Up For Big Changes

Dodge desires to create new owners by delivering a new two-year business plan that is dubbed “Never Lift”. The 2022 Dodge line-up will gain an encouraging promotion that will help educate customers about the coming changes for the brand. The Dodge muscle car lineup contains plenty of edge on the rival brands, as sales showed last year. The 2022 Dodge Charger and 2022 Dodge Challenger are gaining more attention as the various perks are evident with its stock 292-horsepower engine for the base trims as owners can acquire as much as over 800 horsepower for the high-end SRT Hellcat Redeye trim. There are several choices between the various trims and packages that contain unique body color options. The marketing plan underway is going to be stretched out over two years. Dodge has been picking a fight with the Ford Mustang, noting the 5.0-Liter Coyote V8 engine that doesn’t surpass the 6.2-Liter V8 HEMI engine inside of the Charger and Challenger muscle cars. 

Glancing At the Successive Actions For Dodge

Dodge understands they are ahead of the competition, serving as the leader in the driver’s seat within the muscle car segment. The next two-year business plan to drive more customers from other brands has created, known as the 24 Months of Muscle countdown, indicating the last two years before the first official electric muscle car made by the Dodge brand. We know the massive investment the parent company of Dodge, Stellantis, has placed into making the new generation of EVs come this decade. For fanatics of the Dodge Durango though, don’t think Dodge is shifting away from the Dodge Durango SUV just because the SRT Hellcat is not extended a trim for the new 2022 Dodge Durango

The brand will continue to survey how customers feel concerning the changes, but they know their developments best and strive to educate shoppers about their approach going onward. The next two years, known as the 24 Months of Muscle for the Dodge brand, will allow for more expansion in getting individuals to notice the plans and achievements. 

At Miami Lakes Automall, we continue to deliver considerable options to our shoppers, including the newest Dodge vehicles, straightforward from us.

What Was the Dodge Polara Muscle Car?

Friday, December 17th, 2021

Dodge is expanding to new EV efforts, so many customers are speculating if they will still pack the same power the brand has offered for decades. The long-time fans of the brand might be shocked to see an electric Dodge muscle car. Those who remember the 1960s will know the Dodge golden era of muscle. The 1960 Dodge Polara was the first-ever muscle car made by the Dodge brand in the 1960s and wound up being the most successful Dodge nameplate with success lasting the entire decade. The stretch from 1960 through 1970 when the Dodge Challenger overtook the Dodge brand as its top-flight Dodge vehicle. The Dodge brand has seen their muscle car sales grow to figures that are comparable to pre-Covid-19 numbers.  

A History of the Dodge Polara

The Dodge Polara saw its first-generation range from 1960 to 1961 and after two years, the second-generation was presented as the figures from 1961 declined 50% from the year before. The 1962 Dodge Polara was the start of a smaller muscle car that saw its wheelbase shortened to 116 inches. The Dodge Polara would offer its third-generation from 1965 and 1968 with the muscle car going into a full-size C platform build. The Polara replaced the Dodge 880 and was the top vehicle for the brand. The Dodge Polara ended with its fourth-generation that came out in 1969 and served for five years. The 1973 Polara was the last one made as the Dodge brand formed the Monaco to supersede the vehicle in 1974. The Dodge Polara was vended as a Classic car for $18,113 on October 14th, 2020 at an auction in Toronto, Canada to give buyers a notion of the tremendous resale significance affixed to all Dodge vehicles.

Dodge Muscle Cars Are Changing For the Better

Dodge has seen their muscle cars of today expand to wild horsepower numbers, as much as 800 horsepower with modern help ramping up the final product. Dodge has put a lot of stock into making their vehicles maximize their prospects by withdrawing certain trims or vehicles to get the most out of the brand. One vehicle that might alter is the Durango that could pivot into a new vehicle. Look at the modifications coming, but know the awards the brand has garnered has pointed to the right direction with distinctions being named for the brand quite often.

Dodge Teases New Electric Muscle Car

Friday, July 9th, 2021
Dodge EV Miami Lakes Automall

We have received the news we were waiting for; Dodge has first introduced the first image of the future Dodge EV yet to be named. This will be the world’s first all-electric production muscle car. Dodge delivered a new teaser image of what buyers will fantasize about till more is revealed. Currently, the 2021 Dodge Challenger is the freshest Dodge muscle car, but not for long as we know over the summer the next model year, the 2022 Dodge Challenger will debut. The shift has now shined brightly to the newest creation set to debut in 2024. We can expect the next generation of Dodge muscle cars, both the Charger and the Challenger to not only ride on a new platform and offer an entirely new experience both inside and out, to start in less than three short years. As we’ve covered, the electric future of the Dodge brand, as well as the automotive industry as a whole, was a cavalier move we considered to be important to the muscle car segment. Now, the first step of progress has finally been revealed.

Dodge Looking To Curb Climate Change

The new crop of the Charger and Challenger models, if they are the ones selected to offer an electric experience, are a welcomed sight to drivers and dealerships alike. Dodge will offer up the electrified trim to be named as Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, has declared a tag line to go with the muscle car brand. “Tear Up the Streets, Not the Planet” and the electric Dodge car will commence the means of moving away from gasoline-powered muscle cars to newly made electric vehicles. The Dodge brand offered a comment that included “Dodge will not sell electric cars, but will sell American muscle” as the brand maintains their designers have attained the end of what they can produce from internal combustion motors. The Dodge brand “has an obligation to embrace” electrification for a more all-embracing high-performance future. There is some consideration that the first-ever electric muscle car made by Dodge (or anywhere else) will be designated as something brand new. 

We have our view the Dodge brand will increase its EV skills to both the Charger and the Challenger and even build a new EV nameplate, either through improving an older title or creating a new one. The next judgment will be up to the buyers to decide how much they want to drive a Dodge EV. We’ve focused on this story, as the Dodge EV articles from our database show, but we are happy to see the newest results. 

The New 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Has Demon DNA

Thursday, July 5th, 2018
Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Dodge-Charger SRT Hellcat

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Dodge-Charger SRT Hellcat

Back when we received a tease about the 2019 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat trims, there wasn’t much Dodge seemed inclined on sharing. There were two teaser images, a profile for the Challenger SRT Hellcat and a look at its new hood, and another teaser image for the Charger SRT Hellcat with a focus on its front fascia grille. There was talk about improving horsepower, maybe a new Hellcat engine, and even some SRT Demon bits thrown in to keep the gates of Hell open a little longer. Summer is here, and as promised, Dodge released more news about their 2019 high-powered sedan.

Recap of What’s New

In case we’re not all caught up here, there is a lot of talk about stretching the horsepower of the Dodge SRT Hellcat trims by a little for 2019. With the not-so-amazing reception of the SRT Demon, Dodge is using the experience and the technology used to develop the SRT Demon engine to improve upon what already works – a muscle car that is more inclined to be used on the street, but can still burn up the race track. With this in mind, it can’t be a coincidence that Dodge is also going with a more iconic look to pay homage to its heritage, once again, for 2019.

Dodge Grand Caravan: the Ultimate Tailgating Party Vehicle

Friday, June 29th, 2018
Miami Lakes Automall Dodge Grand Caravan Tailgate

Miami Lakes Automall Dodge Grand Caravan Tailgate

Aren’t tailgating parties fun? And no, for those that were previously unaware, it’s not a party where a bunch of cars tailgate one another like ants. A tailgate party is actually a social event that takes place usually before or after a game of sports, like football, in or around the stadium or arena where the game takes place. Many people will park in one location, usually around a main center area where people will set up grills for barbecue, provide alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and whatever else to add to the good times. Most consumers may think a truck or an SUV is the perfect solution, especially with the RamBox Cargo Management System, but when it comes to big parties, minivans might work just as well.

Tailgating With the Dodge Grand Caravan

Yes, it’s a minivan, but the Dodge Grand Caravan was practically made for tailgating. Mainly, we’re talking about the Grand Caravan SXT trim, with a starting MSRP of $31,750* that has the third row Stow ‘n Go tailgate seats. Yeah, that’s right – the second row and third row Stow ‘n Go seats may be standard across the lineup, but the 60/40 Stow ‘n Go split-bench double as tailgate seats in the Grand Caravan SXT. Simply flip the seats back, and that’s two front-row seats to the tailgate party.

Then there’s food, beverages, and party favors. Where can we keep all of this stuff? Depending on the party guests, thanks to the Stow ‘n Go seats that also double as split-benches, we can load up one or both sides of the Dodge Grand Caravan. With the second and third-rows stowed away, a total of 140 cubic-feet of free space opens up. That’s enough for a cooler or two, some sports gear and party favors, even a stereo for sick beats if looking to provide some music without draining the car battery.

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.

Next Generation Dodge Challenger, Viper, and Chevrolet Corvette

Miami Lakes Auto Next Generation Dodge Viper Challenger

Miami Lakes Auto Next Generation Dodge Viper Challenger

Back in 2017 when the Dodge brand released the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, it was definitely a pinnacle of achievement for a factory-manufactured vehicle. Outfitted with a a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V8 engine modified with over 90 new parts, the engine had the ability to generate up to 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque with a little 100+ high octane fuel. Since then, many wondered what was next for Dodge. At the same time, Chevrolet and other brands kept claiming they could beat the Dodge SRT Demon. For every brand that swats at the “fastest car title,” Dodge swats back.

2019 Dodge Challenger

For those who thought the Demon was it for the Dodge Challenger, don’t worry just yet. A teaser for the 2019 Dodge Challenger was released in May 2018, with more details being revealed in the summer. The teaser showed us a new design for the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat that gives the muscle car 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-generation Dodge Challenger featured the Dodge Challenger Trans Am, or T/A for short, and we think the revival of the T/A for recent Dodge Challenger model years may be linked to bringing back the retro look for the new 2019 Dodge Challenger.

The new hood scoop will also be functional, said to feed air into the supercharger lurking underneath. More air means more power, and of course bigger competition. Enter the next-gen Chevrolet Corvette.

Is the Extra Cost of GPS Navigation Worth It?

Monday, June 4th, 2018
Miami Lakes Automall GPS Navigation

Miami Lakes Automall GPS Navigation

It’s great to get a vehicle with an infotainment system and a touchscreen display these days. Chevrolet MyLink, Kia’s UVO eServices, the Fiat Chrysler Automobile Group has Uconnect – they’re all great little systems that help manage entertainment options, as well as apps. One app that consumers will regularly find on an infotainment system is GPS navigation, and usually, a consumer has to pay more for that additional feature. It doesn’t quite make sense – why would automakers charge consumers for a feature they can readily use on a smartphone? You could call it a convenience fee, but maybe there’s advantages to spending a little extra.

Getting a Factory-Installed System

When it comes to a factory-installed system, like next-generation Uconnect 4 or Kia UVO eServices, there’s a bit of convenience that makes it easier to manage music as well as follow a GPS to a desired but unfamiliar destination. The center console is less cluttered, and the system is easy to set up. Factory-installed systems are also more secure, harder to steal from the vehicle, leading would-be criminals to keep walking. Moreover, adding an infotainment system, especially one with navigation capability, increases its resale value, so think of it like making a small investment to get Uconnect with Navigation.

However, that investment might be more than expected. Back in the old days, consumers could pick and choose their features. Now, it’s a package deal. For example, a consumer could get Chevrolet MyLink, but if they wish for Chevrolet MyLink with Navigation, it’s part of a package that includes all these extra things, increasing the price. When it comes to convenience, it’s actually pretty inconvenient to not be able to operate a function you paid for just because the car is in motion.

New Dodge Viper … Again?

Thursday, May 31st, 2018
Miami Lakes Automall New Dodge Viper

Miami Lakes Automall New Dodge Viper

“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!” That’s the kind of quote we could use when talking about the legendary Dodge Viper. Back in 2016, the nearly 30 year-old sports car was finally being put to rest to downsize the Dodge lineup a bit, along with the discontinued Dodge Dart. Let us tell you, it didn’t quite stick. It first started with some going away Dodge Viper special editions that sold out quick. A second round of more special editions were produced and and then brought back a second time for collectors that got the memo a little late. Then we thought the Dodge Viper said its goodbyes when Pennzoil made a Last Viper tribute video. We thought it was done for … But Dodge has other plans.

The Dodge Viper

If it wasn’t for the Dodge Viper sports car, the high performance automobile group, SRT, may have never come to be. Originally called “Team Viper”, the “Street and Racing Technology” (SRT) group was put in charge of designing and developing the legendary Dodge Viper. The model went through various names – the Dodge Viper SRT-10 in 2008, then the SRT Viper in 2013, and then the latest model, Phase VX (later simply called “Dodge Viper”) that lasted from 2013 to 2017.

Under the hood of the Dodge Viper was a hand-built 8.4-liter V10 engine. Designed with ten cylinders in two banks of five, this engine was rated at 645 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque – the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports-car engine in the world. With that kind of power, the Dodge Viper had some impressive track times. In 2016, the Dodge Viper, ACR (American Club Racer) was named the “ultimate street-legal race car”, having held more track records than any production car in the world (a total of 13 road course lap records as certified by the Sports Car Club of America), and a recorded time of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 3 seconds flat. However, one would argue the 2003 Dodge Viper Hennessey Venom 650R was better, with a recorded acceleration time of 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds, and able to run a quarter mile in 10.7 seconds.
