It's an exciting time for cars, especially if you're a Dodge fan. With the brand focusing on performance vehicles, and breaking all the rules to do it, the lineup at Miami Dodge dealers is going to get even better in 2015.
Miami Lakes Dodge, a part of Miami Lakes Automall is a fantastic place to find these new vehicles, as our dealership is one of the largest volume Dodge dealers in Miami. This means we get more of the cars you want to see than any other Dodge dealer. Our great selection of Challengers and Chargers means enthusiasts don't have to settle for what their small local Dodge dealer has to offer.
Back in early May of 2014, Dodge announced it was cutting the fluff and going to become a performance-targeted brand. What this means is, those who love to go fast will be soon be able to go even faster, thanks to Dodge's commitment to making cars fun again.
Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis has been the champion for Dodge's new plan, and has been outspoken about his love for cars. His passion for American cars and achieving more than any other American car brand is a big part of what is making Dodge a more and more attractive brand for consumers, especially new car buyers.
The biggest change that buyers can expect at Dodge dealers over the next few years is a consolidation of total vehicle offerings. Many vehicles are being cut from the current 2014-2015 lineup in order to make room for the changes coming between now and 2020.
For instance, the Avenger has been cut from the line-up as of the 2014 model year and the best-selling Grand Caravan will be out at the end of 2016. However, as a subsidiary of Chrysler, buyers looking for alternatives will find them in the Chrysler brand.
There are alternatives to these vehicles within the Dodge brand as well, though. The Dodge Dart is a particularly good choice for those who may have previously been seeking an Avenger, and the Durango is the SUV minivan seekers will be begging to test drive once they see it in person.
When Dodge says it's going the route of performance, it really means it. The company unvelied a 707-hp version of the SRT Challenger, dubbed the "Hellcat." A few months later, it unveiled a similar SRT version for the Charger. That makes them the fastest production muscle car and sedan, respectively. Oh, and did we mention these both start at only $60,000. Best horsepower to dollar value of any cars on the market today.
And these vehicles aren't just gimmicks for teenagers to gawk over at their local Dodge dealer. According to official Dodge documents, the Challenger Hellcat does 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, while the Charger Hellcat comes in at 3.7 seconds. Both, however, have been rumored to do under 3 seconds on drag radials.
Another big piece of performance news from Dodge is the price of the Viper, which in recent years has dipped in sales. Dodge and SRT have knocked $15,000 to $30,000 off the Viper's price tag, depending on the trim buyers are searching for. This makes it one of the most affordable supercars you can buy today.
The Viper will also be more prominently promoted at Dodge dealers in South Florida in order to compete with the upcoming Corvette. In the past, Dodge and SRT have made dealerships earn the right to sell top-tier cars like the Viper. But now, the company wants to make it clear that the Viper is the true choice for American supercar buyers.
On top of all of this, a convertible version of the Viper is reported to be in the works for the 2016 model year. This will mean more competition again the new Corvette, and much more fun for car buyers looking to weigh their options.
All of this news about performance is great, but Dodge still offers the best bang for your buck when compared to other manufacturers. Take a look at these three great choices when considering a budget-friendly or family-friendly vehicle this year and through 2015:
With the lowest starting price in its class, the Dodge Dart can be taken from base to luxury unlike any compact car. And with standard features like projector headlights, four-wheel disc brakes, and 10 airbags, the competition really can't compete. But upgraded with an 8.4-inch display, 9-speaker premium sound system, and ambient interior lighting, this car becomes one of the coolest sedans available.
Class-Exclusive Dart Features
In a competitive market for crossover SUVs, its easy for many vehicles to get lost in the shuffle of comparisons. The Dodge Journey, however is not one of those. Priced well below its competition, the Journey is the choice for individuals who need power, value, and practicality or the family that needs to save money without sacrificing features and safety.
Options to Consider
The new Crossroad trim, which was released first in 2014, is one of the most impressive AWD options crossover buyers can choose from. Exclusive hyper blank 19-inch wheels, exterior accents, and quick to open/close sunroof set this trim apart from other Journey models. It also features many standard amenities that are set as upgrades on other trims, such as the 8.4-inch Uconnect system with voice command.
While many families feel minivans are out of their price range, Dodge puts convenience, safety, and peace of mind at your disposal for just $20,000. And with time to master their craft, Dodge continues to innovate with the Grand Caravan. The ability to stow seats for additional storage has never been better, and there are more features to keep everyone in the car happy, whether the trip is long or short.
With buyers jumping into new cars faster than ever before, used cars are a becoming a viable option for those looking to save money on a car purchase.
At Miami Lakes' used Dodge dealership, the selection of 1 to 5-year-old Dodge vehicles with low mileage gives car buyers plenty of options to choose from.
For families, the Grand Caravan is the obvious choice, but the Durango offers more style in its aggressive and powerful SUV form. And for those that won't to save a ton on a performance car, there are plenty of Challengers and Chargers to pick through as well.
This is an exciting time to buy a car. There's more unique offerings from major manufacturers than ever before in the history of the automobile. And that's the best reason to buy a Dodge. The brand is going above and beyond what is expected from a car company to build bigger and better cars than its competition.
Dodge wants to separate itself from the competition, which is what makes the Hellcat Challenger and Charger, as well as budget-friendly so special. This idea of doing what other manufacturers won't do is bold in this industry.
So, what's your next car going to be?
