2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat - Driven
Until 2020, the Dodge Durango was a family SUV with a sporty side to it. It came with a V-8 engine that churned out enough power to fulfill the adrenaline rush while also serving as a practical utility vehicle. For the 2021 model, however, Dodge upped the ante. As part of its process to plonk in the Hellcat engine in every product in its portfolio, the automaker transformed the Durango into a beast incarnate that just can’t be tamed. On paper, the Durango SRT Hellcat is now the most powerful production SUV. It can sprint to 60 mph from a standstill in 3.5 seconds. Isn’t that a wonderful and frightening sight at the same time?
SpeedKore’s Dodge Charger Hellraiser Is Built For Kevin Hart
It has been a while since we last heard about SpeedKore and in a way, the whole waiting paid off. The Wisconsin-based custom shop that used to delight our eyes at SEMA has been brewing something over the past months and now it is finally out. Meet the SpeedKore Dodge Charger Hellraiser built specifically for comedian and actor Kevin Hart.
The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock Is Actually Very Low Stock
Just like the Demon, the Challenger Super Stock was built with the drag strip in mind. There are some quintessential differences between the two, but one of them stands out more than the others.
As things stand right now, the Super Stock is going to be way more limited than the Demon, at least as far as the 2020MY is concerned.
Yet Another Ramcharger TRX Rendering Screams For Production
With the Bronco out of the bag, perhaps Dodge should think seriously about coming up with a proper rival for FoMoCo’s SUV. That rival could be a revival model of the Ramcharger, and given the recent rumors saying a Raptorized Bronco is coming in the near future, why not make it a Dodge Ramcharger TRX? Dodge obviously has the firepower and a potential platform, courtesy of the Ram 1500 TRX.
The Durango SRT Hellcat Will Cost You Dodge Viper Money
Dodge has this weird obsession with cramming Hellcat power into almost everything it possibly can. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, and we’d be lying if we said that we weren’t stoked to the Ram 1500 TRX or the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat. However, it’s becoming painfully clear that having Hellcat power isn’t for the weak of heart or for those with a small wallet. Case in point: The 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat.
Old-School Showdown: 1991 Ford F-150 vs. 1995 Dodge Ram Tug-of-War
Back in the day, trucks were merely workhorses and didn’t come with a lot of comfort features or powerful specs. However, Ford used to offer one particular engine that, to date, is widely considered as one of the best engines ever built. Called the Ford 300, this 300 cubic-inch, or 4.9-liter, inline six-cylinder mill was so good that it stayed in production from the 1960s to 1996. The F-150 with this engine was best-suited for farmers, construction workers, and anyone that required a truck for rugged use. It was almost indestructible back then, but can it survive even today?
To know for sure, the folks at TFLClassics purchased a 1991 Ford F-150 and decided to put it to test. This included a tug-of-war with a 1994 Dodge Ram. Does the F-150 conquer the Dodge, or does it succumb to a newer, better-spec’d model?
2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat
The third-gen Dodge Durango has been on the market for almost a decade, and now Dodge has instilled it will Hellcat power. With 710 horses in a three-row family SUV, Dodge has put the Durango on a pedestal and has taken the center-stage in the segment. The Durango is now the most powerful factory-built SUV on the planet. For a machine this big to sprint to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds is a cardinal sin. But, what can we say; we still love it and are chuffed to bits with the announcement of the Dodge Durango Hellcat. One HELL of an engine, huh?
Dodge Emphasizes Its Move Toward Performance As It Kills Off the Grand Caravan and Dodge Journey (Finally)
FCA announced that Dodge will end production of the Grand Caravan after the 2020 model year. The iconic minivan traces its roots back to 1983 when the Caravan made its debut and started the whole minivan craze in the United States. The Grand Caravan goes into the history books as the best-selling minivan in the U.S., with almost 123,000 units sold in 2019. The decision, which seems a bit weird, comes as Dodge decided to focus on performance models.
This Rendering Is, Without a Doubt, What The New Ramcharger Should Look Like
More old nameplate revivals are taking place in the digital realm than in real life and in all honesty, we prefer the former because we’ve seen some iconic nameplates describing SUVs - yes, Mach-E and Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, it’s you I’m looking at.
That said, someone imagined what a modern Dodge Ramcharger might look like and he did a pretty job, too. Sure, there’s no reason to believe that the nameplate is coming back, but the render is nonetheless soul food for the nostalgics.
Did Dodge Just Tease an Upcoming Durango Hellcat?
It’s the year 2020 and Dodge is still selling the bonkers Durango SRT, which can still pull off 0-60 mph sprints in 4.4 seconds. It’s also America’s most powerful SUV that comes with a three-row arrangement as standard thanks to a naturally-aspirated 6.4-liter HEMI V-8.
So, does the world really need a higher-performance Durango iteration? Not really but hey, shoehorning a Hellcat V-8 inside the Durango can’t go wrong, right? Especially since the transplant would be done in the confines of Dodge’s facilities under the close supervision of the brand’s mechanics and engineers, and not by your street-corner auto shop.
Video: 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 Races Camaro ZL1 1LE and Hellcat Redeye
The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 has a massive appetite for both drag and track races. Winning them, too. Not that long ago, Ford’s top dog showed it is no pushover in front of the Ferrari 812 Superfast and Porsche 911 GT3 RS, beating the Hellcat effortlessly in a quarter-mile race. But this time, it has to face the Redeye.
As it turns out, the Shelby GT500 is also well-equipped to do battle against its domestic rivals. In this new episode of Throttle House, the go-fast Mustang had to face the challenge of Chevrolet’s ZL1 1LE and Dodge’s Challenger Hellcat Redeye, under the close supervision of Jason Cammisa and Randy Pobst.
Wacky Races: Dodge Challenger Hellcat Battles Lambo Urus on the Track
Let’s be honest here. Which of the two would you take for a spin during track day? Is it the beefy Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye or the chunkyLamborghini Urus? Tough call, right? We’re thinking none of them, just to be clear, but MotorTrend here did it anyway.
So, here’s the thing. You’ve got a heavy SUV racing against a heavy muscle car that’s been fitted with bits and bobs from the Demon, a car that’s designed and built to go freakishly fast in a straight line. Hell, what can go wrong?
The First Dodge Viper Ever Produced Just Sold for $285,500
The Dodge Viper came in a time when Chrysler was associated with people carriers and compact front-wheel drive cars. It was first shown in concept guise back in January 1989 after just one year under development and the first customers got their Vipers in the early months of 1992. The rest, as they say, is history.
Also history - of the living ilk - is this particular red-painted Dodge Viper, for two reasons: it’s the very first to leave the assembly line and it had one owner throughout its entire life. That owner is Lee Iacocca, who sadly passed away on July the 2nd, 2019.
Watch a Mustang Shelby GT500 Take On the Camaro ZL1 and Challenger Redeye in a 2,200-Horsepower Drag Race
We know we love a proper drag race and we’re pretty sure you do, too. So today’s rumble comes courtesy of Edmunds, who took three muscle car top dogs and had them jump at each other’s throats.
The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye battle for quarter-mile bragging rights. We won’t tell you who wins just yet, but remember this: it’s not always the most powerful car that takes the cake.
Dodge Is Changing the Challenger and Charger Splitter Guards From Yellow to Pink
You could argue that the success behind Dodge’s current-generation Challenger (but also Charger) has a lot to do with the bulky, squarish muscle shape that you simply can’t go wrong with. There are owners, however, who thought the Challenger and the Charger needed a little design spicing… with splitter guards.
More precisely, a lot of owners choose not to remove those protective bits of plastic found on the cars’ splitters during delivery. And the fact that they’re painted in bright yellow makes them quite visible and in-your-face, standing out quite obnoxiously. We guess some people crave that sort of attention.
If This Hint Is Real, The Dodge Charger and Challenger Will Live to Be 15 Years Old
Let’s not hide from the fact that both the outgoing Dodge Challenger and the Charger are old-boned cars by now. Sure, they’ve managed to carve a path of their own, and let’s also remember that the Charger is the best selling full-size sedan in the States, while the Challenger just snatched the sales crown from the Mustang and the Camaro. However, a possible Easter egg might suggest that they might be getting a new generation in 2023.
Life Support Renewed as Dodge Plans a Track-Focused, ACR-Badged Challenger
It first ruled the drag strip, and now it might be time to rule the race circuit. Or at least aim to rule it, provided the recent reports are true. Indeed, we’re talking about the Dodge Challenger, a not-that-new-anymore car that’s been abiding by the Frank Sinatra “I did it my way” credo, which is rumored to receive the ACR badge once wore by the mighty yet now-defunct Dodge Viper.
The Best Used Dodge Caravan Ad You Will Ever See
Soccer mom or not, you must appreciate the Dodge Grand Caravan’s extremely versatile interior. The people hauler is more often than not praised for its great gas mileage, comfortable seats, and huge cargo room. Sure, it’s not your Lamborghini Huracan, and reliability could have been better (that also depends on who you ask, to some extent), but all in all, it did the job.
1985 Dodge RamCharger
Old SUVs, for some reason, are all the rage right now. People are going back in time and are looking to lay their hands on classics like the Wagoneers, Broncos, LandCruisers, etc. The Dodge RamCharger is also one among them and is one of the most sought-after SUVs today. The Dodge RamCharger was originally launched in 1974. It was based on the much larger Dodge D-Series. The SUV was a hit and went through two different generations, spanning almost two decades. A third generation was built in Mexico at the turn of the millennium, but lasted just two years before disappearing into oblivion.
Ram had to keep up with Ford and Chevy, so the time came to give the Ram 1500 a very serious update. And, a serious update is exactly what it got. And, when we say full update, we mean it is all-new with a new frame, new grille, and a completely revised interior, among other things. The fifth-gen model brings together every major selling point the truck has ever had in the best way yet it’s lighter than ever. Even the EcoDiesel V-6 got an update to deliver more power and torque while the truck can even be had with a deployable front air dam and a mild-hybrid drive system. We could talk about the new Ram 1500 all day long, but that’s not why we’re here (you can read our full review for that.) instead, we’re here because we love the look of the new 1500 and decided to make it our wallpaper of the day. Check out our hand-picked favorite or choose from a full gallery of awesome shots.
2020 Dodge Charger Stars & Stripes Edition
Dodge has always prided itself as a company that holds a special place in the hearts of the brave men and women who serve or have served the U.S. armed forces. This isn’t whimsical hyperbole, either. An mTab survey revealed that the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger are leading buys among cars in their segments. They are go-to purchases for active-duty service personnel who want to enjoy the freedom of driving on the open road, the very same freedom that they protect while on-duty in the military. It comes as no surprise, then, that Dodge is celebrating its place in the hearts of American troops by offering a special edition appearance package, appropriately called the “Stars and Stripes Edition.” The new Stars and Stripes package will headline Dodge’s booth at the 2019 New York International Auto Show, which opens its doors next week. From there, the package will be available for ordering in May at an add-on price of $1,995.
Dodge revealed a slightly updated and, as usual, a rather appealing 2019 Dodge Durango. With subtle changes aimed to enrich the offering within all trim levels and with only superficial styling changes, the unibody SUV continues to be a rather formidable competitor to the Pilot and its likeness.
The company revealed an MSRP of $29,995 for the entry level 2019 Dodge Durango SXT with a 3.6-liter, V-6 engine.
