Dodge isn’t going anywhere. Every person involved in the automotive industry knows the future is headed towards electric vehicles. We’ve seen the growth of EVs and its onset for years. We’re pointed out all the upcoming advancements to look forward to, and our readers have seen the importance of why brands are making the shift now away from fossil fuels, which includes gasoline. Today, the landscape of vehicles has changed to include these remarkably powerful and fuel-efficient vehicles. So, what’s the problem with adding large V8 engines in single-passenger coupes like the Dodge Challenger? According to Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares, nothing. 

Future of Dodge Vehicles With Stellantis 

There will be plenty of new Dodge vehicles that might not land on the “Top 10 Most Fuel-efficient Vehicles List of 2021”, but they were never meant to. Except, that, too might change one day if we see an all-EV Dodge muscle car like we were promised. The goal of Dodge is to reinvent itself with the mission statement it’s always carried, to be the best at creating muscle cars, and offer exhilarating high-octane driver experiences. Dodge will include even more Dodge muscle car trims for the brand with a rumor of as many as three new Dodge trims coming soon.  

Word Straight From the Top

The truth according to Stellantis CEO is in the details that include the Dodge brand’s recent 700 to 800 horsepower vehicles. Those vehicles don’t meet the emissions standards and the electric power technology isn’t able to produce the same results. That hasn’t stopped the CEO from trying to push the evolution of Dodge to start sooner rather than later. We expect the Dodge brand to keep producing remarkably fast, exciting vehicles and the Dodge Durango, Charger, and Challenger will certainly have a future if the head of the company has anything to do with it. (He does).

“It’s something we have to work on. There are solutions for that. We have the technology to deliver the torque, dynamics, and acceleration feeling, while also dramatically reducing the emissions,” said Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares. 

For more information on any of the newest Dodge products, count on us at Miami Lakes Automall to share the news. We’re excited for the future of the Dodge brand including a focus on EVs, but while that means we have no EV Dodge vehicles today, we do have plenty of wonderful choices that offer the power of Dodge as well as vehicles that offer much in the way of EV capabilities. Come in for a test-drive to experience Dodge muscle today!

SpeedKore Adds 1,000 Horsepower Engine To 1970 Charger For Kevin Hart

Ask any mechanic or true car enthusiast and they will reveal the trick to knowing how much worth a vehicle has can be found under the hood. As no doubt, owners can measure value by the strength of its engine and how said powertrain sings. The truth is for most customers, they might not be able to convince this to everyone in the family, but let us attempt. Seldom vehicle purchases require some forward-thinking and rationalizing. What exactly is too much power and intensity? Well, for some, like comedian Kevin Hart, there isn’t adequate horsepower in a standard Charger. The famed aftermarket super team at Speedkore has combined the most impressive Mopar/Dodge engine into a renewed 1970 Dodge Charger. This Hellphant V8 engine is the essence of what muscle cars are all about. Few vehicles can manage this remarkable engine’s strengths. 

SpeedKore Pumps Up the Volume For Kevin Hart?

The Hellephant engine was originally showcased back at the 2018 SEMA exhibit and showed the world what a truly high-octane experience can offer drivers. The engine formally arrived in 2019 and offered the lucky owners of it a special Hellcat 6.2-Liter Supercharger V8 engine that carries 1,000 horsepower and 950 lb-ft of torque. This is no ordinary powertrain! Kevin Hart might have a hard time driving this vehicle considering its tremendous strength. The transmission attached to this classic 1970 Charger is right from the legendary 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon; a Demon-spec ZF 8HP90 8-speed automatic transmission and thus completes the perks afforded to the funny man’s impressive muscle car. 

Mastering the Charger Rebuild

Oddly enough, SpeedKore has restored this same Dodge Charger muscle car; the 1970 model. Their previous revisit of this Charger produced their creation known as the “Evolution”. Some perks for that upgrade included a carbon-fiber body with parts from the 1970 Charger original and added as much as they could from the original 1970 Charger. The extension of Brembo brakes with 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers ensure Kevin Hart will be protected when utilizing the brakes to stop this wonderful throwback of a muscle car. 

We know plenty of our readers are hoping to drive a vehicle that makes them feel the surge of Dodge engineering. For those interested (and ones that could convince who they needed to) those buyers should look no further than Miami Lakes Automall. We know about all the high-octane powers afford by Dodge muscle cars. The comforts and perks that come with the most advanced Charger and Challenger have a special place for shoppers. No other vehicles can carry the intensity of these unique Dodge muscle cars. Find out more when you reach out to us!

Dodge Muscle Cars Now Carry 20-Inch Wheels For First Time Ever

Dodge is finally going to give customers what they have wanted for years. For the first time, Dodge will break out 20-inch wheels for both the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger. The muscle cars that have helped re-launch the success of the Dodge brand in the decade before last have never looked so bold and imposing. The 2021 Dodge Challenger and Charger will gain these 20-inch wheels on all All-Wheel-Drive models. Allow us to share all the details that are included with this first-ever 20-inch Dodge muscle car lineup.

Details Worth Knowing For the 2021 Dodge Muscle Car Lineup

The Dodge muscle cars that carry AWD come with the legendary 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 gasoline engine that provides 300 to 305 horsepower, depending on which Dodge car. The standard 19-inch wheels look noticeably smaller and help create an aesthetic that could only come with aftermarket wheels. These 20-inch wheels are also placed deeper inside the vehicle, at 8 inches in, versus the 7.5-inch depth held with 19-inch wheels. The reason the wheels are placed deeper has to do with providing a way to allow for use of greater width of each tire. This allows drivers to have each tire (this is All-Wheel-Drive after all) provide optimal grip and traction. The exterior appearance benefits from this move as well, as the skinnier tires will no longer look as awkward. Not to mention, the perk of knowing the replacement tire is an easier find.   

Engage With Newest Dodge Cars Today

For those who are seeking a chance to get their hands on the fresh new 2021 Dodge Charger, they may have to wait till summer or beyond. For now, we’re ready to help our customers into our current line-up of fresh Dodge muscle cars. The choice of AWD includes the choice of Satin Carbon or a Black Noise finish. Keep in mind, buyers who opt for the SXT AWD version of either the Charger or Challenger, those vehicles can only come with the Satin Carbon wheels rif they purchase the Plus Package. This package costs $2,695 for the 2021 Charger and $3,095 for the 2021 Challenger. Black Noise wheels also require the choice of the Blacktop Package. For any customers that want to know the thrill and experience of driving a fast muscle car, we are the right place to go at Miami Lakes Automall.

J.D. Power Awards Praise the Resale Value of Multiple FCA Vehicles

Tuesday, October 30th, 2018

Thinking of buying a pre-owned vehicle? Wondering what new vehicle would run best in a few years? Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is pleased to be acknowledged by J.D. Power with several vehicles receiving the 2018 Resale Value Award, considering the best resale value measured for 24 model-level vehicle segments. The Ram pickup trucks gained the highest resale value in the entire industry, but they weren’t the only FCA brand named.

The Dodge Challenger, Charger and Jeep® Wrangler won in their individual segments for having exceptional resale value. Among the awards won by the four FCA vehicles, the Highest Resale Value Industry-wide award went to the Ram 3500 Heavy Duty, Highest Resale Value Midsize Sporty Car segment was awarded to the Dodge Challenger, the Dodge Charger won the Highest Resale Value Large Car segment award, and the award for the Highest Resale Value Compact SUV segment went to the Jeep Wrangler JK. The process has changed since inception, but we’ll get into all the details and the vehicles that won below.

Overview of the Award Process

J.D. Power has been around since 1968, and J.D. Power helps owners make better-informed choices. In 2018, exactly 244 vehicle models were evaluated during the J.D. Power Resale Value Study, involving a sample of over 650,000 deals with an average of 3,500 data points valued on each vehicle. The award determination method applies pre-owned vehicle wholesale figures that outline how much a dealer purchases a used vehicle for. The prices are then divided by the vehicle’s initial purchase price. These assessments are based on wholesale records from January through June 2018 for vehicles that are three years old – the 2015 model year.

The Rush of the Dodge Challenger Is Incredible

Looking into the latest Dodge Challenger muscle car lineup built by Dodge, and consumers can feel the horsepower of Street Racing Technology (SRT) with their SRT Hellcat vehicles. The newest 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye thrives with a muscular, electric 797 horsepower engine. The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat raises the horsepower yet again this year by producing 717 horsepower, and both Hellcat models obtain a distinct dual-snorkel hood that gives tribute to the most popular Dodge muscle cars, including the 1970 Dart Swinger and 1971 Demon.

For drivers that enjoy the wicked Widebody models, they will find added fender flares, increasing the body width by 3.5 inches, 20 x 11-inch forged wheels, 305/35ZR20 Pirelli tires, and larger six-piston Brembo brakes. Consumers can add this appearance package to the SRT Hellcat or R/T Scat Pack. The new Challenger GT rear-wheel-drive model continues its performance capabilities with standard Super Track Pak features, a performance hood, and is powered by the legendary 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 engine.

Eight separate models make up the reconfigured vehicle lineup for 2019 – the SXT, SXT AWD, GT, GT AWD, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye. Various option packages extend upgrades, showcasing new features and supply exhilaration on demand. The Challenger offers a comprehensive range of motor options, including the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 on SXT, SXT AWD, GT and GT AWD models, the superb 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 in the R/T models, the naturally aspirated 392 HEMI V-8 on R/T Scat Pack models, the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 on the SRT Hellcat, and a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V8 on the SRT Hellcat Redeye. Some serious speed is expected for owners to embrace and enjoy.

Drive the Fastest Dodge Charger Yet

The Dodge Charger has four seats, unlike the Challenger coupe, and is the fastest four-door muscle car produced. Remarkable performance matched with standard V6 efficiency and available all-wheel-drive (AWD) capabilities, the Dodge Charger lineup is produced and masterminded to accommodate the latest in high-performance enjoyment. The Dodge Charger provides optional all-wheel-drive, but rear-wheel-drive (RWD) is standard across the lineup, highlighted by the unrestricted performance-driven powertrains under the hood. The standard being the exceptional 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 on Charger SXT, SXT AWD and GT, the wonderful 5.7-Liter HEMI V8 on R/T models, the striking 392 HEMI V8 on R/T Scat Pack models, and the 707 horsepower 6.2-Liter supercharged HEMI SRT Hellcat V8. Standard on each Dodge Charger model is an eight-speed automatic transmission.

For 2019, Dodge added a fresh Charger SXT AWD model and a new Charger GT RWD performance V6 model. Dodge Charger GT and R/T models get the performance look and feature standards, and receive sleek race-bred chassis upgrades. The Charger SRT Hellcat and R/T Scat Pack feature standard performance upgrades, including Launch Assist and Line Lock; a new performance grille with dual air inlets; new Launch Control switch on R/T Scat Pack; and Torque Reserve and an After-Run Chiller on the SRT Hellcat. It’s clear to see why the Charger received its award. The 2018 Dodge Charger starts at $28,995 MSRP (plus destination fee.)

See The World Through A Jeep Wrangler

Every Jeep® Wrangler provides the most durable and off-road ready drive. Seven decades of 4×4 engineering expertise go into the Wrangler. Starting with the 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 and an all-new 2.0-Liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, drivers can expect great things. The Jeep Wrangler has a body-on-frame design, front and rear five-link suspension system, solid axles, and electronic lockers to make going off-road easier than ever. Buyers gain a six-speed manual transmission in addition to the optional eight-speed automatic. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL begins at $27,945 MSRP (plus destination fee).

Do More With A Ram Heavy-Duty Pickup

Ram Trucks provides America’s longest-lasting pickups on the market today. Simply put, the newest pickups by Ram stand out as a fine choice for pickup truck buyers among the heavy-duty market. For 2018, Ram took innovation to new heights and reached out even further with their three-quarter and one-ton pickups, including a towing capacity of 31,210 pounds, 7,390 pounds of payload, and ability to produce 930 lb.-ft. of torque.
