2018 Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

A Look Back At the Recent History of the Dodge Challenger

2018 Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

The Dodge brand has grown in popularity and offered seemingly better and better muscle car options for customers. The truth is Dodge really has upped the ante for vehicles in terms of production and horsepower, among other qualities its customers embrace. Looking back at just the last half-decade we can see just how improved the Dodge muscle lineup has grown. When the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was introduced, it was a landmark effort. The first SRT Hellcat would offer 707 horsepower and hit a remarkable 11.2-second quarter-mile effort. Dodge would surpass this total with more recent efforts in the following years. Let’s take a look at where the Dodge brand has grown and exceeded previous efforts with unmatched gusto. 

Looking Back At the 2015 Dodge Challenger

The first SRT Hellcat would offer 707 horsepower and hit a remarkable 11.2-second quarter-mile effort. Dodge would surpass this total with more recent efforts in the following years. Let’s take a look at where the Dodge brand has grown and exceeded previous efforts with unmatched gusto. 

Former President and CEO of Dodge and SRT Brands, Tim Kuniskis, remarked when the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat debuted that Dodge was “reaching deep into our history and bringing back the notion from the muscle car ear of the street and strip dual-purpose cars”. This was just the first effort to embark on a path that includes new muscle cars for new customers to fall for the love of racing and the muscle Dodge provides. The goal for Dodge was to make a muscle car serve two purposes and this would further be realized when the following year Dodge offered the 2016 Challenger. 

Dodge Improved Challenger In New Ways For 2016 and 2017

Dodge had redesigned the Challenger the year prior, but when the 2016 model year came out it offered the most muscle ever offered in a production vehicle. The supercharged 6.2-Liter HEMI SRT V8 engine offered 650 ft-lb of torque and hit a top speed of 199 mph. While this would see to be impressive, as the rival brand Chevrolet and its Camaro only hit 455 horsepower and the Challenger was over 700 horsepower, the 2017 model year was even better. The 2017 Dodge Challenger GT was the first all-wheel-drive muscle car and offered launch control to help ensure an easier start on drag strips. The following model year offered something we’re still talking about to this day.

The Most Impressive Dodge Challenger Models Yet

The 2018 model year for the Dodge brand offered the rare and exclusive 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. This was the fastest production muscle car and it wasn’t topped by any vehicle since, with the exception of the new 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. The 2018 Dodge Challenger offered the SRT Hellcat and the SRT Hellcat Widebody, but the star vehicle was the SRT Demon. With high-octane fuel, the output for the engine was 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque. The Dodge brand wound up creating cousins of the SRT Demon in the following years with muscle cars are just as exclusive as the SRT Demon. Look no further than the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.

More Demon Parts For Customers To Enjoy

Dodge wound up earning lots of attention when parts of the SRT Demon found its way into both the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and this year’s 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. While the SRT Hellcat Redeye offered “only” 797 horsepower, the SRT Super Stock hit over 800 horsepower and became only the second Dodge vehicle to offer customers such unique strength and power. In fact, the SRT Super Stock is perhaps the most impressive Challenger ever made. So, what does Dodge have in store for buyers in the coming years? We can expect only remarkable results and some of the world’s finest engineering for the company responsible for putting muscle cars back on the map in the past decade.

Speedkore Demon Miami Lakes

1,400 Horsepower Dodge SRT Demon? Yes, please.

Speedkore Demon Miami Lakes

Few vehicles need to be improved upon, and one of those is the incredible 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Increasing areas like speed and velocity for a vehicle that provided a stock quarter-mile time under 10 seconds, that’s just not something that needed to be done! This is genuinely not the vehicle to enhance. However, that didn’t stop Speedkore from getting their hands on one and making it more of a Demon. The fastest, mightiest Dodge Challenger has just been crafted. With only a lone year of production for the world’s fastest production muscle car, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon had a limited run of just 3,300 vehicles. Speedkore Performance Group got their hands on one and got to work, replacing the supercharger 6.2-Liter HEMI V8 engine to give it twin-turbos. We’re not making this up.

Exactly How Much Fastest Did They Make the SRT Demon?

There wasn’t any reason to need to touch the engine of the SRT Demon. The biggest reason for that is it was already at 840 horsepower and produced 717 lb-ft of torque. That’s not only impressive, but it’s also dangerous with the wrong driver behind the wheel as this beast was famous for requiring a waiver to be driven! Speedkore Performance Group took the challenge to make this vehicle even better with goals to take it to the 2019 SEMA show happening in Las Vegas later in 2019. They started by replacing the body panels with carbon fiber (which they had previously done to the vehicle before, but that was just the start for this new SRT Demon project). After replacing the body panels with carbon fiber and pulling out the supercharger engine for two new 6875 Precision Billet ball-bearing T4 turbochargers. Transforming the engine to include a twin turbo setup is what makes this newsworthy is just how much more horsepower the twin turbos generate. The intensified SRT Demon now gets around 1,400 horsepower at the flywheel and exactly 1,203 horsepower at the rear wheels. Wicked!

More On the Impressive Speedkore Demon

The majority of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is mostly the same aside from the look and what’s under the hood. Among the new additions included were new carbon fiber additions, new hood pins, side-mounted exhausts on either side of the front bumper. This transformed Dodge SRT Demon weighs less and moves way quicker. Perhaps the most improbable aspect was how the Speedkore Performance Group was able to make their SRT Demon almost a second faster when racing in a quarter-mile. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon stock hit an exceptionally fast time of 9.65 seconds, while the Speedkore Demon ran a mind-blowing time of just 8.77 seconds in the quarter-mile.  

Improving On the Original

Thought the Speedkore Performance Group had improved on the Demon with the carbon fiber additional, this was the first time they added a twin-turbo. Their latest revamping effort to make the Demon fastest and advance the boundaries of horsepower and velocity for the SRT Demon is surprising, to say the least. How much fastest could this particular muscle car get? We know today just how much scarier the Demon could be!

For those who want to check out this improved, monstrous SRT Demon, check out Speedkore’s showcase at the 2019 SEMA show going on October 30th through November 2nd in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first twin-turbo Dodge SRT Demon will appear and fans will get the chance to see it up close and in person. However, to drive a vehicle as fast as the impressive Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, there are few choices like it. The good news is Miami Lakes Automall has them!

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Dodge-Charger SRT Hellcat

The New 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Has Demon DNA

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.

Miami Lakes Automall SRT Bondurant Racing School Demon

Bondurant Racing School Now Open to the Dodge SRT Demon

Miami Lakes Automall SRT Bondurant Racing School Demon

Remember back when we discussed the Bondurant Racing School? It’s the driving school that partnered up with Dodge/SRT to deliver the education and skills necessary to not only handle the power of Dodge muscle cars and SRT vehicles, but also gives them a chance to do a little drag racing. Well now that the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is making the rounds and orders are being delivered, Bondurant has opened a new program designed specifically for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Strap into your racing harness, because you’re going to need it when this beast goes from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds.

How to Get into the SRT/Bondurant Racing School

Is your adrenaline pumping already? Settle down, cowboy. There’s a few requirements before one can get behind the wheel of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. All automotive enthusiasts that wish to participate and attend classes at the Bondurant Racing School need to be of 18 years old or more to be eligible. Second, only drivers can attend the school, it’s not a place to socialize and take pictures.

There’s a third pseudo-requirement if wanting to take classes for free. If having purchased or leased a US-market SRT vehicle with a VIN from 2015 – 2018 (or the present) after April 1, 2015 will immediately have the fee for the classes waived. Meaning the cost of the classes are included in the vehicle, but owners or lessees of an SRT vehicle produced after 2015 only have a year to redeem the free day at school. Otherwise, they, and those who have not purchased or leased an SRT vehicle, will need to pay the standard price of admission – $699.

Miami Lakes Auto Mopar HellCrate Kit

Mopar Debuts New 707HP “Hellcrate” at SEMA

Miami Lakes Auto Mopar HellCrate Kit

The automotive world is staying busy with all of the things debuting at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) in Las Vegas, and that includes those of us at Miami Lakes Automall, because one of our biggest partners debuted a pretty cool new system. At this year’s SEMA, Mopar decided to get in on the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon game by designing a Demon Crate of their own – the Mopar “Hellcrate.”

The Mopar “Hellcrate“ is a  6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMI® Engine Kit that gives a vehicle the same 707-horsepower engine found on the Dodge SRT Hellcat models. The Mopar “Hellcrate” is the first factory-backed engine kit that produces up to 707 horsepower. The kit itself is a collection of components chosen and designed to add horsepower and torque to an already installed engine. It includes a powertrain control module (PCM), power distribution center, engine wiring harness, chassis harness, accelerator pedal, ground jumper, oxygen sensors, charge air temperature sensors, and fuel pump control module for the 6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMI Engine kit.

NASCAR Season is Almost Over – But That Doesn’t Mean Racing Is

Miami Lakes Auto High-Performance Vehicles 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

What’s up Dodge Challenger enthusiasts! Now that the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon orders have been placed and are being produced in factory, let’s talk about the SRT Demon and other high-performance vehicles. Not only that, but let’s talk about racing them, track times, power, and then some. Here at Miami Lakes Automall, we have the two most well-known names in performance cars – Dodge and Chevrolet.

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

Two years ago, Dodge came out with the SRT Hellcat for their Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger models. Powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine, both Hellcat models generate 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. If that wasn’t enough, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is paired to a 6-speed manual TREMEC transmission (TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic HP90 transmission optional) and has a top speed of 199 mph. All that power gives it the ability to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds.

As with many SRT vehicles, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat comes with Performance Pages installed to allow the driver to change engine settings, transmission, driving modes, and more. All of it can be found on an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and drivers have a number of options. Change the engine and transmission into Sport Mode to reduce shift times by nearly half, enable the paddle shifters for manual gear switching, and activate the proper configuration for an enhanced driving experience. There’s also the nifty launch control that, when activated, provides the vehicle with precision grip and improved acceleration to achieve maximum vehicle acceleration as well as traction control during the launch of the vehicle. Drivers can also record track times, engine performance, and other real-time stats.

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

This year the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon debuted in April 2017 at the New York International Auto Show and blew the crowd away. Under the hood powering this beast is a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V8 engine with over 97 new parts that were specially designed and integrated into the engine’s build for maximum performance. Able to generate 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque when properly equipped, not only will the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon take off, but it will also momentarily fly as it pops a wheelie at launch. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is also the world’s fastest factory production car, able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds and reaching a max speed of 140.9 mph.

A bare bones 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has no rear seats, no passenger seat, cloth upholstery, and a 2-speaker sound system. If looking for maximum performance, that’s all the features an enthusiast may want. Then all the owner needs to do is make use of the Demon Crate every Dodge Challenger SRT Demon comes with to modify the vehicle into a true drag race car. The parts include narrow front runner aluminum drag wheels, performance parts, the right tools and jacks, an air filter, a tire pressure gauge, and a powertrain control module along with a switch module to switch over to high-octane gas for the fuel source and remap the engine. That last part is the secret to generating all 840 horsepower. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon also comes with performance pages and can do everything the system on the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat can do.

2018 Chevrolet Camaro

One of the iconic vehicles under the Chevrolet name is the Chevy Camaro. Built and sculpted for speed, it is commonly put up against vehicles like the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat as competition for best high-performance vehicle. The high-end and most powerful trim of the 2018 Chevy Camaro would have to be the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 DI engine able to generate 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. Paired to a 6-speed manual transmission, the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds.

Sadly, Chevrolet doesn’t have anything like the performance pages for the Camaro. Instead, it has a heads up display that provides color digital readouts for vehicle speed, selected gear, and G-Force, amongst basic car information like outside temperature, turn signals, compass, etc.

2018 Chevrolet Corvette

There are three versions of the Chevy Corvette, but here we’ll talk about the 2018 Corvette Stingray. Introduced in the second generation of the Chevrolet Corvette, the Stingray was distinctive from other models. Today, one can get the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 3LT (high-end trim) with a Z51 performance package to give it all the power it can get. Powered by a 6.2-liter V8 DI engine, the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette will generate 455 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque for any trim in the lineup. With the Z51 performance package, those numbers go up a bit to 460 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. Paired to an 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, the 2018 Chevy Corvette with the Z51 package can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds.

For the Chevy Corvette, Chevrolet does have a performance data recording system so that drivers may record video and real-time performance data to play back, share, and analyze their driving experience. There are several modes as well – track mode for recording performance data (speed, rpm, g force, track maps, and lap times), sport mode that provides more simplified data (speed and g force), touring mode to capture video and audio of scenic drives, performance mode to record high-performance data (0 to 60 mph, 1/4-mile speed and elapsed time, and 0-to-100-to-0 runs), and a valet mode to keep an eye on vehicle data when not in the drivers possession.

Those are four of the high performance vehicles we have at Miami Lakes Automall, and they’re known to burn rubber right out of the lot. Although the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was a limited edition with only 3000 units sold in the nation, we still have availability as well as plenty of other high performance vehicles. Check our inventory for the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51.

Miami Lakes 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

First Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Produced

Miami Lakes 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

After the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon debuted back in April, there was constant news about its power, price, and the legal issues surrounding driving one, let alone owning one. Remember that bit about signing a waiver to drive the Dodge SRT Demon? The news surrounding this demonic beast sort of just, vanished … until now. The first 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has finally been produced and rolled off the assembly line. No word on howling screeches or flaming tread marks yet.

Just think about it though. Those looking to get your hands on a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon are closer than ever to the most highest-performing factory-production car ever. How close? The SRT Demon came off the assembly line in mid-September. However, although produced, this first Dodge Demon is pretty under wraps. Perhaps customers who have ordered their own Dodge Challenger SRT Demon like a little privacy, because the chosen features for this first vehicle are unknown.

Miami Lakes Auto Brembo Braking System

Stopping is As Important As Speed When It Comes to Performance Vehicles

Miami Lakes Auto Brembo Braking System

With automakers churning out more and more powerful vehicles, one has to wonder how drivers keep all of the horsepower and torque of a muscle car or performance car under control. The new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds, and it can be brought to a full stop from 60 mph in 97 feet. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk hits 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and can be stopped in 114 feet. Those are pretty impressive acceleration times, but the stopping times are just as impressive when you think about the physics behind it. What’s the secret to that impressive stopping power? High-performance braking systems.

Brake System Basics

Understanding brake systems can be a little confusing at first because there are a lot of components to brakes – calipers, rotors, brake pads, and pistons. A brake caliper is part of the disc brake system and is filled with several pistons. When the brake pedal is pushed and pressure is applied from the brake fluid, the pistons inside the caliper push the brake pads against the rotors to slow and eventually stop the vehicle. Typically there are usually 2-4 calipers per brake system. The brake rotor is most often an iron disc connected to the wheel’s hub that works with the brake pad to stop the vehicle; that is why a braking system may also be referred to ask a disc brake system. The more pistons, the more stopping power and the more pistons, the larger the caliper and generally the rotor as well.

Brembo Be Thy Name

“Brembo” is a name heard often when talking about brake systems. Brembo is an acknowledged world leader and innovator in the field of automotive disc brake technology and high-performance braking systems. A name automotive brands can trust, the Brembo brake systems pop up in all kinds of high-performance vehicles, such as the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the Chevrolet Corvette, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Depending on the setup of wheels, axles, and suspension, the size and specifics of Brembo brakes are different, but almost any set of Brembo brakes will get the job done.

Brembo 4-Piston High-Performance Brakes are used in the Dodge Charger SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat, come standard on the Chevrolet Camaro 2SS coupe, and they are available on the Chevrolet Camaro 1LS coupe. The system is made up of 4-piston Brembo brake calipers, a 14.2-inch front rotor, and a 13.8-inch rear rotor to improve handling and control of the vehicle under extreme braking. Sometimes, such as in the Camaro ZL1, the front brakes may have a 6-piston system whereas the rear has a 4-piston system. This 6:4 setup shows up more in Corvettes, though.

Brembo 6-Piston High-Performance Front Brakes are used in the Dodge Challenger T/A 392, Challenger SRT 392, and Challenger SRT Hellcat. This is the largest front-brake system ever used on an FCA US vehicle. It is made up of 390-mm Brembo two-piece rotors with six-piston calipers. This is the power that can bring a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon to a full stop in less than 100 feet whilst going 60 mph. It may seem obvious, but the more pistons there are in a braking system, the more force can be applied to the brake pad and rotor to stop the wheels. The reason these larger calipers and rotors are put in the front is because of the transfer of weight when a vehicle is brought to a stop. With the weight transferring to the front of the car, the front brakes bare the majority of task for slowing the car or bringing it to a stop.

Some brake systems may also come visually tailored to the specific model and trim. For instance, the Brembo 4-Piston High-Performance Brakes used in the Dodge Charger SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat come with red brake calipers, whereas the Brembo 6-Piston High-Performance Front Brake system used in the Dodge Challenger T/A 392 come with black brake calipers (red on Challenger SRT 392, and Challenger SRT Hellcat). The Chevrolet Corvettes also have some choices – yellow or red brake calipers are available on the Corvette Stingray and Corvette Grand Sport, with dark gray metallic-painted calipers on the Grand Sport with the Z07 package. The Chevy Corvette Z06 comes standard with red brake calipers, but has the option of dark gray metallic as well. In the end, it’s just a personal style choice.

If interested to know more, we discussed many performance parts and how they work in our article “Performance Parts Explained – Dodge”. Check it out. If interested in getting a feel for how well these brakes work, check out our inventory or give us a call for a test drive.

Miami Lakes Dodge Auto SRT Demon Configurator Featured

Dodge Demon Configurator Goes Live

Miami Lakes Dodge Auto SRT Demon Configurator Featured

Well it’s been a few months since the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon came out, and finally Dodge has put a configurator online. Anyone who has ever gone to the website of an auto brand and checked out a car model has most likely seen an option to “build” the car. Not from the ground up of course, but what the build configurator does is offer the consumer all kinds of options available to the selected car model. From there, they pick and choose what they wish to have. Although we may not all have $90k, those of you that are ordering a SRT Demon will be happy to know you can get it exactly how you want it.

The SRT Demon Configurator

If you click this link, then you’ll be taken to the SRT Demon Configurator page. It lists all the good stuff the SRT Demon is known for, such as being the world’s fastest acceleration factory production car (0 – 60 mph in 2.3 seconds), highest g-force ( 1.8 G’s), and has an output of 808 horsepower, 717 lb-ft of torque before opening the demon crate and filling up on octane fuel. Then say hello to a whopping 840 horsepower and take a visit to the race track.

After clicking “Build,” users are brought to the powertrain. It of course has all the standard features, a 6.2L Supercharged HEMI V8 -SRT Demon engine paired to a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. It also comes with a $1700 gas guzzler tax. Hey, this thing burns high octane fuel like sugar on a stove, it ain’t cheap. For those in the north, an engine block heater can be added on for $95 to warm the engine and engine oil to reduce startup wear.

Miami Lakes FCA Dodge Angel

FCA Trademarks Name “Angel” for Upcoming Vehicle

Miami Lakes FCA Dodge Angel

When filing for a trademark name, one would think things are “hush-hush”, but someone over at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office loves to gossip because whenever a name or term is trademarked by an automotive giant, somehow the news gets out. Back in July of this year, FCA filed and secured the name “Angel”. To think Dodge just released the Demon, too. What a “coincidence.”

Now, no one’s saying Dodge will be coming out with a vehicle called the “Angel,” it’s not like the Dodge SRT Demon was a very very limited edition (/end sarcasm) – only 3,300 units in all. FCA may not even use the name on a Dodge vehicle, we don’t know. However, isn’t it interesting that this trademark name was secured shortly after FCA filed to trademark the name “Cuda,” short for “Barracuda”? Something smells, let’s say, fishy.
