Dodge

Dodge has a storied history that goes back to 1900, but it’s biggest claim to fame was its muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s. And, that heritage still lives on today with models like the Challenger and Charger, both of which can be had with a 707-horsepower, Hemi V-8. The Challenger has also been offered in Demon form with even better performance. Outside of muscle cars, the Dodge brand is also known for the Durango SUV and Dodge Grand Caravan. The company still sells the Dodge Journey, but it seems as if nobody really buys it, and it’s beyond due for retirement. Dodge Ram pickup trucks are now sold under the RAM brand aren’t associated with the Dodge name anymore.

Dodge should be introducing next-gen versions of the Challenger and Charger in the next few years, and maybe even a replacement for the Journey. For now, however, the brand keeps a small lineup of just five vehicles that all start below the $30,000 mark, with the exception of the Dodge Durango that starts at $30,150.

Your Chances of Getting a Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Just Took a Nosedive

Your Chances of Getting a Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Just Took a Nosedive

The Durango SRT Hellcat isn’t a limited model, but it kind of is

After various spy shots and a [teaser in February 2020 that hinted at a Durango Hellcat, we kind of knew that it was coming. But, Dodge did kind of dropped it on us out of nowhere,, and it was pretty damn impressive. A Durango with a supercharged, 6.2-liter, V-8 that delivers 710 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque wasn’t necessarily what we needed, but it damn sure was what we wanted. It can even get to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and tops out at 180 mph – performance figures that were once limited to high-end sports cars and supercars not that long ago. Things were looking good, but now it seems that it might be a little harder to get a Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat that previously thought, thanks to a short production run.

2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock

The Challenger SRT Super Stock is a cool Hellcat Redeye with Demon parts

The 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is the special-edition, SRT-tuned version of the Dodge Challenger. Developed for racing at the drag strip, but still road-legal, the 2021 Challenger SRT Super Stock bridges the gap between the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and the Challenger SRT Demon.

In short, the Super Stock is pretty much an upgrade package for the Redeye model.

This is not the truck we deserve, but the truck we need

The 2021 Dodge Durango was launched a few days back and has been welcomed warmly by enthusiasts all around the globe. Dodge has set a cat among the pigeons in form of the 710-horsepower Hellcat engine under the hood of the 2021 Durango. This is certainly bound to reinvigorate the powerful SUV segment. However, it looks like the SUV could do well in another segmentl, thanks to a rendering by X-Tomi Design. X-Tomi has rendered the 2021 Dodge Durango as a pickup truck and we have fallen in love with it.

Dodge Emphasizes Its Move Toward Performance As It Kills Off the Grand Caravan and Dodge Journey (Finally)

Dodge Emphasizes Its Move Toward Performance As It Kills Off the Grand Caravan and Dodge Journey (Finally)

Dodge discontinued the Grand Caravan and the Journey for 2021

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.

Perhaps that’s why Dodge is waiting to release the second-gen Challenger and Charger

FCA has let the cat out of the bag, showcasing the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, and the Challenger SRT Super Stock. The latter, by the way is now the world’s quickest and most powerful muscle car (according to FCA, of course) while the new Charger Hellcat is the fastest and most powerful sedan you’ll find anywhere.

2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock Arrives As The World’s Quickest and Most Powerful Muscle Car

Dodge isn’t done making mountain-shaking muscle cars

Just when you thought the Dodge Challenger couldn’t get any more mental, the SRT Super Stock arrives with its chest puffed out and already claiming the title of the world’s fastest and most powerful muscle car. Wider than the SRT Hellcat Redeye and sporting fat and sticky radial tires, the Challenger SRT Super Stock upends the Redeye as the most powerful muscle car in the world. It comes with the same powerhouse engine, but output is tuned to 807 horsepower. The Super Stock joins the demented Challenger SRT Demon as the only two muscle cars with more than 800 ponies on tap.Dodge hasn’t mentioned a price tag for the Super Stock, but expect it to cost a little more than the Hellcat Redeye’s $80,190 sticker price, and order books should open summer of 2020.

The 2021 Dodge Durango Is About More Than a Facelift Thanks to the New 710-Horsepower SRT Hellcat Trim

The 2021 Dodge Durango Is About More Than a Facelift Thanks to the New 710-Horsepower SRT Hellcat Trim

With this, every 2021 Dodge model now has an SRT trim in its lineup

The current-gen Durango has been in the running for a decade now, and it was high time for the fourth-gen to make its debut. However, the company announced that it’ll just be a facelift. But, after seeing the 2021 Durango “facelift”, we are not complaining because this is even better than the next-gen stuff.

Apart from the exterior and cabin upgrades, Dodge has added an SRT trim to the Durango’s lineup that brings with it the Hellcat engine. The Durango equipped with this mill will make a mammoth 710 horses that will allow the heavy family hauler to sprint to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds! Well, this a fourth of July present from FCA that we’ll gleefully accept.

The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Is Fastest and Most Powerful Sedan In the World

The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Is Fastest and Most Powerful Sedan In the World

The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye is a Demon in disguise

The current-generation Dodge Charger is a bit long in the tooth. Introduced in 2011, it’s already nine years old as of 2020, and some argue that the 2015 facelift didn’t bring notable improvements beyond the looks and some extra tech. But Dodge did offer an SRT Hellcat model, which proved that the old Charger is not yet ready to surrender. Now, the FCA-owned brand takes things up a notch with the SRT Hellcat Redeye. Basically a sedan version of the Challenger with the same name, the Charger finally gets some bits and pieces from the extreme Challenger Demon. Granted, it’s a full-fledged, drag-ready Demon, but it’s the most extreme current-generation Charger you can buy. And if that’s not enough for you, it’s also the most powerful and fastest sedan in the world!

2020 Dodge Charger 392 Scat Pack Widebody - Driven

2020 Dodge Charger 392 Scat Pack Widebody - Driven

Dodge’s mid-performance muscle car fits perfectly between the Hellcat and R/T trim levels

The demand for sedans – and cars in general, for that matter – has been plummeting for some now, and a lot of automakers have started to or completely withdrawn from the segment altogether. As of now, you’d be hard pressed to find a performance sedan outside of the Dodge Charger, without looking to German- or Japanese-built cars, and even then, a big chunk of those fall into the luxury category. This week, we were treated to a week’s worth of driving the 2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody, and it got us to thinking – without any real homegrown competition, does this car have what it takes to compete with mid-performance offerings from Germany? Well, it’s a tough call, and there’s a lot to take into consideration, so as we dive into our experience with the Charger Scat Pack Widebody, we’re going to explore just how it stacks up against its closest German competitors, the BMW M340i and the Mercedes-AMG C43 sedan.

This Rendering Is, Without a Doubt, What The New Ramcharger Should Look Like

This Rendering Is, Without a Doubt, What The New Ramcharger Should Look Like

It’s unclear if Dodge is bringing back the Ramcharger, but this render looks nice

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.

Because of the Dodge Viper ACR, The Challenger ACR Will Actually Be Something Special

Because of the Dodge Viper ACR, The Challenger ACR Will Actually Be Something Special

If it wasn’t for the greatness that was the Viper ACR, Dodge wouldn’t know what to do with the Challenger ACR

The ACR name – also known as American Cup Racer – is a name that represents the very best on-track performance that Dodge can offer. It was introduced back in 1999 on the Dodge Viper and was used, briefly, on the Neon (we can argue about this another time), but has been sitting on the shelf since Dodge decided to kill the Viper off a few years ago. The Challenger, however, in a sense, helps to fill the void left by the Viper’s untimely exit, so it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that a Challenger ACR is actually on the way. The latest word on the Challenger ACR, however, hints that it could be just as much Viper as it is Challenger. Let me explain this a little further.

There’s nothing quite like a 707-horsepower SUV to get people excited about cars again

Like most automakers these days, Dodge is bleeding money in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic that has gripped the whole world. And like most automakers, Dodge is reopening its business in an attempt to stem the tide and bring some much-needed cash flow back to its coffers. A big part of that plan, at least according to Mopar Insiders, is to prioritize the launch of the Dodge Durango.

This Modern Interpretation of the Dodge Deora Concept Just Made the Future Chevy El Camino Weap in Fear

This Modern Interpretation of the Dodge Deora Concept Just Made the Future Chevy El Camino Weap in Fear

Is this the cool, electric pickup truck we deserve?

Unveiled in 1967, the Dodge Deora is one of the craziest concept cars of the 1960s. Based on the Dodge A100 pickup, the Deora was built by brothers Mike and Larry Alexander and showcased at the 1967 Detroit Autorama, where it won no fewer than nine awards. Chrysler liked the design so much that it leased the truck for two years to display alongside its factory concept cars. The Deora inspired a Hot Wheels model car and resurfaced in the early 2000s when it was restored. The Deora was auctioned off for $324,500 in 2009. More than ten years later, the Deora was reimagined as a modern concept car.

Odd Car for Sale: 2013 Dodge Challenger Custom "Daytona" Coupe

Odd Car for Sale: 2013 Dodge Challenger Custom "Daytona" Coupe

The modern Daytona that Dodge never built

Produced for a short time in 1969, the Dodge Charger Daytona was a radical, aerodynamic version of the iconic muscle car developed specifically for NASCAR racing. Because competition rules required a run of road-legal cars to be produced for homologation, the Charger Daytona made it on public roads to become one of the most valuable cars of the golden muscle car era. The Daytona made five comebacks to the market, the most recent one in 2020, but none of the modern renditions were as radical as the original car. But someone decided to fix that by creating an aerodynamic Daytona model using the Dodge Challenger as a base. And you can buy it online via Barrett-Jackson.

Resurrection: Is the Dodge Dakota Really Making a Comeback?

Resurrection: Is the Dodge Dakota Really Making a Comeback?

A trademark has been filed, but it may not be used on the upcoming compact pickup truck

Ram is the only major truck maker that doesn’t have a presence in the overcrowded midsize pickup truck market. However, it looks like that’s set to change. FCA had previously announced that it will come up with a compact truck in 2022.

People have connected the dots with the latest Dakota trademark filing and presumed that the truck will be given the moniker. However, the trademark doesn’t even specify that. While both these things are true - the arrival of a new compact pickup truck in the future and FCA filing a trademark for Dakota – they may not be connected to each other at all.

Which Is Quicker? A Chevy C8 Corvette or a Dodge Charger Hellcat?

Which Is Quicker? A Chevy C8 Corvette or a Dodge Charger Hellcat?

The answer has a lot to do with weight and traction

They say power is nothing without control and what better field to test that out than the performance car arena? As you’re about to see in this C8 Corvette versus Charger Hellcat skirmish, packing a bucketload of horsepower doesn’t stand a chance in front of less power complemented by less weight, better grip, and sharper aerodynamics.

What is the Cheapest Dodge?

The Dodge Journey wears the crown for cheapest in the Dodge lineup with a starting price of just $22,995, which isn’t a bad price for a midsized crossover. Of course, Dodge couldn’t charge much for the Journey as it went into production back in 2008 and has never seen a real redesign since. Dodge has a bad habit of letting models live longer than they should, and the Journey is a prime example of this. While it might be the cheapest and will get the job done, the chassis underneath is old and outdated, as is the technology inside. Be that as it may, Dodge still managed to move nearly 100,000 examples of the Journey last year, which really isn’t bad for an 11-year-old design in the grand scheme of things.

What is the Sportiest Dodge?

Believe it or not, the Charger, Challenger, and Durango are all sporty in their own right, and all three can take home the trophy for being the sportiest. The Charger is the brand’s only sedan offering and, if you’re into sedans, you’ll find that it’s a pretty sporty proposition for something that starts below $20,000. It’s definitely sportier than comparable offerings from Ford and Chevy. The Challenger is our personal favorite and is a pretty sporty coupe with a lot of muscle car DNA built in. The Dodge Durango is a prime example of what a sporty SUV is supposed to look like, and it can even be had with a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8.

What is the Most Popular Dodge?

Dodge’s most popular model is the Dodge Grand Caravan, with sales totaling 151,927 for all of 2018, with the second best seller being the Journey (yes the one that it seems nobody still buys). If you add the sales of the Charger (around 80,000 for 2018) and the Challenger (around 66,000 for 2018) they wouldn’t match the high sales number of the Grand Caravan. Part of the Caravan’s success, however, is the fact that it’s used largely by municipalities and is also great for customization for handicap drivers.

What is the Most Expensive Dodge?

With the Dodge Viper no longer in the lineup, Dodge’s most expensive model is the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody. It is powered by the same 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 but delivers 797 Horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque. It’s the closest you can get to the now sold-out Dodge Demon and commands an entry price of $77,945. That’s $43,000 more than the entry-level Challenger. If you’re interested in sedans, the most expensive Charger is the SRT Hellcat with 707 horsepower and an entry price of $67,495.

What is the Fastest Dodge?

The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is actually, somehow, 1 mph faster than the Challenger Hellcat Redeye with a claimed top speed of 204 mph. Be that as it may, the Challenger Hellcat Redeye is able to hit 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and run a 10.8-second quarter-mile straight off the production line. If that’s not fast enough for you, then you shouldn’t be looking at an American car company to quench your thirst for speed.

Are Dodges Reliable?

How reliable a Dodge really is varies greatly depending on who you ask. According to JD Power, Dodge is ranked No. 29 in the U.S. out of all major automakers, beating out only Fiat, Land Rover, and Volvo. According to JD Power, Dodge has been found to have 178 problems per 100 vehicles built. On the other hand, Repair Pal ranks that Dodge brand with a four out of five rating, or No. 15 out of 32 car brands. According to that outlet, the average cost of repair is $580, which is $51 below average, while the frequency of unexpected repairs comes down to 0.3 times per year, 0.1 times below average. 13 percent of all unscheduled repairs for Dodge models is considered severe. So, as you can see, there are polarizing opinions.
