Dodge Durango Hellcat Takes On A Shelby GT500 - Does AWD Give the SUV an Edge?

Dodge Durango Hellcat Takes On A Shelby GT500 - Does AWD Give the SUV an Edge?

Was the Durango able to ‘Dodge’ the GT500, or was it left ‘Shelb’ shocked?

Hennessey Performance had two new visitors at its facility, both of which came to be tuned up to around 1,000 horses. One was a family SUV with a sports car alter ego called the Dodge Durango Hellcat, and the other one was a two-door, rear-wheel-drive sports car from Shelby called the GT500. Both makoverof 700 horses and took under four seconds to 60 mph from rest. These are the stock specs, in case you were wondering. So, before they were injected with steroids, the folks at Hennessey decided to race the two of them because, well, why not! Who do you think will win?

1968 Mercury Cougar by Ringbrothers

1968 Mercury Cougar by Ringbrothers

This is another Ringbrothers creation that we can all get behind

Wisconsin-based custom car builder Ringbrothers has unveiled its newest restomod: a 1968 Mercury Cougar that’s affectionately been dubbed the “Coyogar.” The all-encompassing restoration includes a lot of the typical modifications and upgrades you’d expect from a Ringbrothers project. Co-owners Jim and Mike Ring even sourced a Ford 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 engine from a Ford F-150 Raptor for the build. The finished product is more toned down than previous Ringbrothers projects, but it’s still easily identifiable as a Ringbrothers project that combines classic looks with a modern technical side.

We had just stopped drooling over SpeedKore’s Hellraiser when Classic Recreations came in smashing through the door with the carbon fiber-bodied 1967 Shelby GT500CR Mustang.

The build was announced in September 2020 as an extremely limited run of just 25 units and we are glad to report that it is finally here. With a little help from SpeedKore, that is.

Dodge Prepares The World For The Death of Supercharged V-8 Performance

The Hellcat may go into the history books, but muscle cars will live on as EVs

The days of Dodge’s supercharged, 6.2-liter V-8 engine are numbered, says company CEO Tim Kuniskis, who predicts that the infamous Hellcat models won’t be around for long. But while V-8 power is slowly dying due to tightening fuel economy requirements, muscle cars won’t disappear altogether. Kuniskis predicts that electrification will bring a new "golden age of muscle cars" upon us.

Someone Seriously Put a Dodge Challenger Hellcat On Buggy Wheels

Someone Seriously Put a Dodge Challenger Hellcat On Buggy Wheels

Behold, the Challenger Hellbuggy!

YouTubers are known to do some pretty silly stuff in order to rack up followers, or simply to entertain their existing audience. That said, what sometimes seems downright stupid, occasionally gives us answers to questions we never knew we wanted to ask, or simply wouldn’t dare test for ourselves. US-based YouTuber WhistlingDiesel decided to see how usable a 700+ horsepower muscle car can be if you change the sticky rubber with buggy wheels.

Ford Could Give Us a Mustang GT3 Instead of an LMDh Prototype

As a ’global sports car’, the Mustang’s job is to race anywhere and a GT3 version is now under consideration

Ford quit the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship and the FIA World Endurance Championship at the end of 2019 when its successful GT race car built to the GTE regulations was parked. Now, as GTE is nearing the end of its lifespan, at least in North America, Ford is looking at fielding a

based GT3 car in the future although the option to build an LMDh prototype that could fight for outright wins at Le Mans, Daytona, and Sebring isn’t completely off the table either.

2021 Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye - Driven

2021 Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye - Driven

The range-topping Charger has a lot of good points and a few bad

The current Dodge Charger has been on the market since 2011 and, while it is getting a little long in the tooth, Dodge has continuously found ways to keep it interesting. It didn’t go so far as to make a Charger Demon to match the widely loved Challenger Demon, but it certainly came close with the car you see here – the Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye – a 797-horsepower monster of a car that’s capable of standing down some of the world’s finest sports cars with nothing but some good old fashioned American muscle. Being such a powerful sedan, we’ve been curious about just what it can offer and whether or not near-800 horsepower puts it out family car segment altogether. We got to spend a week with it, and this is what we’ve learned.

By 2028 The Ford Mustang Could Be An All-Electric Coupe

By 2028 The Ford Mustang Could Be An All-Electric Coupe

Cyclone, EcoBoost, Voodoo, and Predator will be history in Mustang’s books

When Ford unveiled its first electric SUV, the Mach-E, with ‘Mustang’ in it, people lost their minds. The pony badge belongs to a rich heritage of loud, roaring muscle cars that has built a legacy of its own over the decades. Many of us kind of accepted it since it was a new model with the Mustang badge and not a replacement.

However, this new report has ticked us off again. According to Autoline Daily, the Mustang is going to go all-electric starting 2028. Nope, it won’t be sold alongside the regular, rear-wheel-drive, V-8-powered pony. It will be the end of an era. I’m not crying, you’re crying.
