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.

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!

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 Ushering In A New Era For Buyers

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.
