Miami Lakes 2018 Dodge Demon Part Two

Recent Updates of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Miami Lakes 2018 Dodge Demon Part Two

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be unveiled in a month! Can you believe it? The promotional campaign is still going on, although a lot of us think some footage snuck out with the new Fast and Furious movie, and so they capped on that with a trailer showing off the Challenger SRT Demon a bit. Plus, every week, a new video comes out, so it’s time for another recap.

In mid-February we covered the first five videos, starting with the original teaser and ending with the fifth teaser video that introduced the Challenger SRT Demon’s forced induction system that will increase power. Other information revealed in the videos included the Challenger SRT Demon’s wide-body design and a more than a 200 pound decrease in the vehicle’s weight for increased agility.

The surprises haven’t stopped though. Recent developments make this street legal car looking like it is shaping up to be more of a drag racer. Here are the most recent videos.

Miami Lakes Dodge Pursuit Officer Protection

New Dodge Charger Pursuit Officer Protection Package

Miami Lakes Dodge Pursuit Officer Protection

The Dodge Charger Pursuit is a pretty nifty car. We’re not sure if we should be jealous or impressed. On one hand, the men and women in blue get a customized vehicle just for them, and Dodge is trusted enough to build cars for them. The 2017 model came out not too long ago, but it’s already being upgraded with the Officer Protection Package.

Eyes Everywhere

The new Office Protection Package adds upgraded visual and motion detecting systems that help to make officers safer in their vehicles. The new cameras and equipment will be on at all times, and Dodge hopes this will help prevent a potential ambush of officers in the vehicle.

In a press release Jeff Kommor, Vice President for FCA U.S. Sales Operations, Fleet and Small Business Sales, said, “This technology is designed to prevent an officer from being ambushed from the rear while parked. While it does not replace vigilance, this technology acts as a second set of eyes and provides police officers with added peace of mind when they are in a parked Charger Pursuit.”

Miami Lakes Mopar 2017 Dodge Challenger

Mopar Celebrates 80th Anniversary with Mopar ’17 Dodge Challenger

Miami Lakes Mopar 2017 Dodge Challenger

When we discussed Mopar’s 80 Year Anniversary last week, we didn’t expect news about a new vehicle to celebrate the milestone. There was talk about Mopar doing something special for their 80th anniversary, but a new Mopar ‘17 Dodge Challenger? Count us in!

Mopar actually has a line of its own limited-edition vehicles, starting in 2010. The ongoing series as of now is made up of the Mopar ’11 Charger, Mopar ’12 300, Mopar ’13 Dart, Mopar ’14 Challenger, Mopar ’15 Dodge Charger R/T,  and the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel. Now with the Mopar ‘17 Dodge Challenger, it might be safe to say they’re not just a custom auto parts shop anymore. They do still have plenty of high performance auto parts though, many of which we add to various vehicles in our service area.

The Mopar ‘17 Dodge Challenger will turn heads with two two-tone custom body paint options available – Contusion Blue and Billet Silver, straight from Dodge’s case of High Impact Paint colors. To achieve the two-tone appearance, Mopar will be hand-painting the upper portion of the Challenger Pitch Black. Either paint job will give a brilliant appearance at night and day, and the bodylines of the Dodge Challenger are perfect for the two-tone transition. A special Mopar 392 logo will also be hand-painted on, and the Challenger will be riding on 20-inch aluminum wheels with semi-gloss accents and Dodge logo hub caps, followed by Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat black exhaust tips.

Miami Lakes Dodge Challenger Cooking Turkey Engine

How to Cook a Turkey on an Engine and Then Some

Miami Lakes Dodge Challenger Cooking Turkey Engine

Heyo! Thanksgiving is literally around the corner, next Thursday, and with that, some are in a panic. If they aren’t now, they will be. Watch the turkeys disappear from the stores and the instant-gravy, too. The worst thing to happen around this time of year though is usually needing to cook a turkey, sometimes in a short amount of time. Luckily, there are a few infamous ways to cook a turkey.

To Grandmother’s House We Go

This one has been around a bit, and was made popular by Manifold Destiny. It’s a book all about how to cook while on-the-go. No, really on the go. As in, cook a 5-pound turkey breast with vegetables on the way to the dinner party. A quick little background for this set-up – plan to drive for about four hours, assuming your dinner party isn’t around the block, and have the following ingredients:

Road Trip to the Red Planet? Dodge Challenger is the Best Choice

2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Mars

With all the recent talk about the Red Planet, we started wondering what it would be like if cars could travel … in space?! Crazy right? It’s impossible today, but let’s say we take a page from the Cosmos, and believe a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat can in fact travel through space.

Why go to the Red Planet in a  Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat?

If you’re going on a long journey to another planet, you’re definitely going to want the speed of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Additionally, wouldn’t we want Martians to know Earthlings have a little pizzazz?

First off, we need to make the necessary upgrades for breathing. We also need to think of a few things; once a propulsion engine gets us past Earth’s gravitational force, we’re left to just a car. Space has no traction, so we can’t steer.  HEMI or turbocharged engine, it doesn’t matter, we can’t go very far – well we can, given our inertia, but we’ll be traveling aimlessly into blackness. So let’s also say we have a liquid-fuel cryogenic rocket engine with the same parameters of an everyday car engine, and can be powered by everyday gasoline – basically, a car engine redesigned to propel us through space whilst keeping its same specs i.e. horsepower, torque, rpm, etc. We also need to have the exhaust connected to the steering wheel so we can steer.

My Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Experience

Miami Lakes Automall Dodge Challenger SRTHellcat Hands-on Experience

Between the months of August and September, Miami Lakes Automall was working with Polesport Champion and filmographer, Kristian Lebedev to create multimedia and promotional material for several car brands. During which time, I, Jordan Rodriguez was assigned to work with Kristian. I got to drive a lot of cars for the project, including the beloved 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Here’s what I experienced.

Oh man, I got to drive a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. It was a-mazing. Also, a little intimidating. For the first hour or so, I was driving like my gramma – as slow as possible. I didn’t want a single dent or scratch. I was riding in a vehicle worth nearly double the average salary in Miami. So yeah, I was panicking a bit.

Once we got on the highway though, that all changed. The Dodge Challenger is like none other. With a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 – SRT Hellcat Engine under the hood, putting out 707-horsepower, accelerating from 0-60 in seconds was an experience I’ll never forget. Not to mention how fluid driving the Challenger was. I could feel the difference when I got back in my own car. Once I got used to the Hellcat, I felt invincible driving. The car was smooth and it handled perfectly.

American muscle cars like the Dodge Challenger, the Charger or even a performance car like a Dodge Viper fit in on the colorful Miami and Fort Lauderdale streets quite well. Not only is South Florida all about performance vehicles, but its residents are also about making a statement, whether by clothes or car, so those Dodge cars are excellent for cruising the beach. Aside from joy rides, if you live in South Florida and drive a performance car, you can also test out your car’s horsepower and speed on the local tracks — have you been yet?

If you are looking for a good Dodge dealership to purchase a hot and fast car or to find out a nearby track you can test your performance car out, we have you covered at Miami Lakes Automall. Read below for track info and the Dodge Challenger, Charger and Viper track times.

Test your Dodge Performance Model on the Track

There are two tracks located in South Florida where adrenaline junkies and performance car owners can test their personal car on a speedway — Homestead Miami Speedway and Palm Beach International Speedway. Both tracks offer classes by trained professional drivers that can show drivers how to safely maximize their car’s performance and allow drivers to bring and drive their own cars out on select days. Don’t fret if you don’t achieve optimal performance at first, just have fun seeing how fast your car can drive on a real race track. Read the rest of this entry >>
