PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Ram 1500

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.

PostHeaderIcon Last 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon Leaves Factory

Chrysler’s Brampton Plant in Ontario celebrated a bittersweet moment yesterday as the final 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon rolled off the assembly line. The last Demon is now headed to a Barrett-Jackson auction where it will be sold for charity along with the final 2017 Dodge Viper

Production of the 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon by SRT was limited to one model year and 3,300 units. But don’t despair if you still want a crazy Challenger, as there is an improved 2019 Hellcat coming very soon. The final 2018 model is going to get a special treatment after leaving the factory, getting ready for its big auction event which is, by the way, a word record setter in terms of the amount of horsepower that is going under the hammer (combined output of the Demon and the Viper: 1,485 horsepower).

The last 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon will be equipped at an upfit center with a hand-painted exclusive Viper Red exterior color, 18-inch aluminum wheels, 18-inch Demon drag radial tires, Demon vehicle badging and a one-of-a-kind VIN instrument panel badging. Whoever bids highest at the June 20-23 Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction will take home this 840 hp Demon along with a 645-horsepower Dodge Viper with an 8.4L V-10 engine, also the last of its breed. 100 percent of the hammer proceeds from the sale going to the United Way charity.



Leaving behind a 25-year legacy with more track records than any other production car, production of the V-10-powered Dodge Viper concluded at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit in August 2017. The last production 2017 Dodge Viper is styled in homage to the first-generation Dodge Viper RT/10 with its Viper Red exterior and black interior. The car (VIN ending in 731948) includes exterior carbon fiber accents, black Alcantara leather seats and an exclusive VIN instrument panel badge and authentication kit.

PostHeaderIcon The Dodge Viper Could Return As Soon As 2020!

Still mourning the Dodge Viper, the cool, all-American, V-10 supercar that was discontinued in 2017? Well, it’s been just a few months since Dodge halted production and word has it FCA might bring it back soon. According to Car and Driver, a “new Viper is happening” and it could arrive in production form in late 2020. But it won’t be the same.

PostHeaderIcon Ebay Sellers Think You’re Dumb Enough to Pay $500,000+ for a Dodge Challenger Demon

Launched for the 2018 model year, the Dodge Challenger Demon is pretty much a road-legal dragster. It’s also the quickest and the most powerful Challenger built in a factory. Given these facts, as well as the limited, 3,000-unit production for the U.S. market, it’s not exactly surprising that the Challenger Demon starts from $84,995. Granted, it’s a bit steep for a platform that’s been around for ten years now, but it comes with many benchmarks. With demand higher than production rates, Demons are actually sold with a high premium on the used car market, but things just got ridiculous on eBay, where supercharged Challengers are listed for more than $100,000.

PostHeaderIcon The 2018 Dodge Durango Is Ready To Catch The Bad Guys

As consumers scoop up the latest and greatest four-wheeled creations to go about their daily lives, law enforcement agencies are also looking to upgrade their fleets. One of the latest entries in this space is the new cop-prepped Dodge Durango, which offers V-8 power and AWD to stick it to the perps.

PostHeaderIcon Official: 2018 Dodge Durango Pursuit Police Car

Complementing their range of law enforcement vehicles, Chrysler revealed today the 2018 Dodge Durango Pursuit. The special SUV is outfitted with everything that made its partner, the Charger Pursuit, great, including the 5.7L HEMI V-8.

In many ways the Dodge Durango Pursuit is a more capable vehicle than the sedan thanks to its ride height and active all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. It can put its 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque to good use chasing down bad guys even if they are on dirt bikes or ATVs. This thing can really go offroad, as it boasts a two-speed transfer case. On the road, the eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-biased AWD give the Durango five-oh great handling.

Other important highlights of 2018 Dodge Durango Pursuit that make it a good police vehicle include K-9 friendly Tri-Zone interior temperature control, Trailer sway control, Spot lamp wiring prep package, 220-amp alternator, and under-vehicle mount for spare tire, maximizing interior cargo space and accessibility. Add to that the Durango’s own natural talents such as 7,200 lb. towing capability, 8.1 inches of ground clearance, and parking assist, and you have a car for every opportunity.

“Unofficial testing results at the Michigan State Police 2018 model-year vehicle evaluation event created such a stir among law enforcement agencies that we simply had to find a way to build this vehicle,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – FCA North America. “The Dodge Durango is already known as the Charger of SUVs, so it is only natural that the new Durango Pursuit complements the Charger Pursuit in police fleets across the country.”

PostHeaderIcon Like the Dodge Challenger, the Dodge Charger Will Also Get a Facelift for 2019

The Charger isn’t exactly as old as the senior-citizen Challenger (now 10 years old) but it has been on the market since 2011, making it due for a generational shift. We’ll have to wait a little longer for that, but to help keep the mob at bay, Dodge is ushering in a much-needed facelift for 2019. Little is known at this point but as you can see from the teaser image, it’s slated to get a new face. High performance models like the SRT Hellcat, for example, will get an all-new grille and will even get that integrated intake. The grille is slimmed down considerably compared to the 2018 model and it looks like the front fascia may actually be a bit sportier.

Outside of what we can see in this photo, however, there’s little more to be said without going into excessive speculation. We don’t even know if the Charger will get that same aggressive hood scoop from the Challenger update. We do know that a full design is underway for both the Challenger and Charger, however. And, to make things even better, the wait is due to a major platform shift that will have the Challenger and Charger brothers riding on the same platform as the Maserati Ghibli.

That could be big news for these two reborn but aging muscle cars. Stick around for updates about the 2019 facelift and be sure to check out our full review of each model at the links below!

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Teased with Dual-Snorkel Hood

Good news for the fans of over-the-top muscle cars. Not only isn’t the Hellcat being discontinued, Dodge has updated it for the new modelyear with some interesting features. The biggest highlight of the 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, and the first thing they teased, is a retro-inspired dual snorkel feature. 

As the name clearly suggests, the dual-snorkel hood on the 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat replaces the current single air intake with a dual unit, feeding more air into the V8 engine and more importantly giving the car a seriously sinister look. It’s a small thing, but we reckon the effect on the overall looks of the Hellcar is going to be profound. The not-so-revealing teaser images suggest the same.

The Mopar-designed dual-snorkel of the 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is inspired by the unit on some of the brand’s most iconic mid-60s and early-70s muscle cars. Whether the new mod has anything to do with a power upgrade for the Hellcar remains to be seen, as they are not saying anything yet about the technical specifications.

Dodge is again reaching back to its 100-plus-year history as it evolves the Challenger lineup for 2019, introducing a new dual-snorkel hood on Hellcat models that pays homage to the distinctive Mopar design themes from some of its most famous muscle cars. This new fully functional hood harkens back to the mid-60s and early-70s, but with a modern interpretation that looks even more sinister and provides maximum air intake to the supercharged powerplant. More information to come this summer …

PostHeaderIcon Watch A 2,600-HP Dodge Viper Destroy The Half Mile: Video

Following a brief production hiatus between 2010 and 2012, Dodge finally discontinued the Viper in 2017. Despite its newly limited status, there are plenty of enthusiasts out there that continue to use theirs as intended, blasting around race tracks and down drag strips with all ten cylinders at full song. Some even take a wrench to it and pump up the output levels to crazy new heights, adding in the boost to achieve four-digit horsepower levels and simply insane acceleration numbers. Such is the case for the two mad machines featured in this 12-and-a-half-minute bit from 1320 Video.

Kicking things off is a red example from Calvo Motorsports, as piloted by shop owner Antonio Calvo. Right off the trailer, this crazy two-door tops out at 221 mph by the end of its half-mile airstrip run, all thanks to the 2,600 horsepower and 2,200 pound-feet of torque it makes at the rear wheels. Following it up is a more streetable version rocking a white paint job and Calvo Motorsport’s TT package. Of course, we say “streetable,” but the white Viper is still producing as much as 2,100 horses at the wheels. Hey, at least it still runs an H-pattern gearbox!

PostHeaderIcon The Chance of a Lifetime: The Final Dodge Viper and Challenger Demon are Being Auctioned for Charity

Did you miss out on the last batch of Dodge Vipers in 2017? Well, here’s some good news for you: Dodge will auction the last production model for charity this June. There is a catch though; the Viper comes in a bundle with a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Insane, right?

PostHeaderIcon Final Dodge Viper and Challenger Demon To Be Auctioned For Charity

It has become a tradition for American car makers to auction off the first and last production units of their prominent models. But Chrysler apparently feels that is not special anymore, which is why they come up with this double feature. At the Barrett-Jackson auction in June they will be selling the final 2017 Dodge Viper along with the last available 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon as a pair. 

That is a combined 1,485 horsepower, probably the most ever to be sold at Barrett-Jackson in one sale. Offering these cars as a package is a clever effort to entice collectors and enthusiast to bid more than they would on each car individually. This is a seriously special offering though, what with the Viper and Challenger Demon both being final, end-of-era units. Whoever buys these bad boys is looking at a sound investment, especially with the Demon. The Viper, to be frank, has died and come back to life so many times, nobody cares anymore.

Just to remind you of the specs of these monsters, the Challenger Demon is an 840 horsepower drag racer for the streets with more than 20-plus industry-first technologies and features. If you fit this car with the complementary drag equipment that comes with it, it also becomes the only production car in the world capable of pulling a wheelie. As for the Viper, it boasts iconic looks and a crude but lovely 8.4L V-10 engine with 640 horsepower. But again, if we were to collect a Viper we’d go for a first generation model.

“An avid collector could search a lifetime to try to put two vehicles of this pedigree together and never find it, it’s that elusive,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – FCA North America. “Pairing the last Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and the Dodge Viper production cars – two of America’s most sought-after vehicles – under the roof of Barrett-Jackson gives someone the ‘last’ chance to own this unique piece of automotive history, and Dodge//SRT the opportunity to raise money for a cause close to our hearts.”

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Dodge Durango GT Rallye Appearance Package by SRT

For those who don’t need the full power of the real Durango SRT or R/T, the performance division of Chrysler has come up with a cheap aesthetic package that only has the look. The Dodge Durango GT Rallye Appearance Package is in many ways the best version of this oddball SUV. 

While the huge output of the real SRT model is certainly intoxicating, if you are going to buy a high-powered SUV chances are you will go German. The Dodge Durango GT Rallye Appearance Package comes with a more than decent 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that generates 295 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. That seems to us like the sweet spot for this car, offering a good balance between performance and efficiency.

As for the extras that make this $1,495 package worth considering, the main highlights include a performance hood with cold air duct and two heat extractors, performance front fascia and LED fog lamps. You get these on top the GT’s equipment list which includes leather-trimmed bucket seats with suede inserts, heated first- and second-row seats, power liftgate and 20-inch Hyper Black aluminum wheels. Durango GT also comes in a number of really cool colors, including Vice White, White Knuckle, Octane Red, Redline Red, DB Black, Granite and In-Violet.

“Many of our customers love the performance look of the Durango R/T and Durango SRT, but are happy with the award-winning Pentastar V-6 engine’s 295 horsepower and the excellent fuel efficiency it delivers,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “This new Durango GT Rallye Appearance Package gives those three-row SUV buyers the best of both worlds.”

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Goes Plum Crazy with Customization Options For The Challenger and Charger

The Dodge Challenger and Charger are two cars that don’t lack in personality. But in times when the names aren’t enough to get your juices flowing, Dodge is adding a cosmetic package that should get your juices flowing. It’s called the Shakedown Package, and it includes plenty of exterior and interior upgrades, all of which were added to make the Challenger and Charger models stand out even more than they already do.


Dodge Goes Plum Crazy with Customization Options For The Challenger and Charger - image 773145
“The Shakedown Package does have extensive aesthetic updates, including aggressive accents, interior modifications, and a revival of two of the most classic colors ever given to a Challenger”

There’s nothing anybody can do that can make either the Challenger or Charger look like boring church cars. Both machines have fierce personalities, the kind that’s born out of years of testing and development. But that’s not to say either of these two models can’t have a bit more aesthetic fun along the way.

That’s what the Shakedown Package is for. It doesn’t have any power or performance upgrades, but it does have extensive aesthetic updates, including aggressive accents, interior modifications, and a revival of two of the most classic colors ever given to a Challenger. Those of you who are old enough to remember the Dodge Challengers of yore will probably recognize the B5 Blue and Plum Crazy color schemes that were the rage back then. The history of both colors relative to the history of the cars themselves shouldn’t go unnoticed. The B5 Blue color, for example, takes its name from the original paint code that Dodge used on a specific shade of cobalt. The Plum Crazy color, however, dates its lineage all the way back to 1970.


Dodge Goes Plum Crazy with Customization Options For The Challenger and Charger - image 773144
“The B5 Blue color takes its name from the original paint code that Dodge used on a specific shade of cobalt”

Specifically, the two colors are available on all variants of the Charger and the T/A, T/A Plus, and T/A 392 versions of the Challenger. Together, they join an already eclectic mix of colors that make up Dodge’s High Impact Paint palette. So, in case you’re not feeling Panther Pink, HEMI Orange, Top Banana, Sassy Grass, and Go Mango, the B5 Blue and Plum Crazy colors should get your creative juices flowing.

The two colors complement the other exterior upgrades available on the Shakedown Package: the asymmetrical stripes that run over the car’s body. Just like the two colors, this stylistic treatment has a history of its own, one that dates back to the 1971 Dodge Shakedown Challenger Concept that the company unveiled at the 2016 SEMA Auto Show.


Dodge Goes Plum Crazy with Customization Options For The Challenger and Charger - image 773143
“Regardless of the model, you’re going to need to shell out an extra $995 if you want to score a piece of Dodge’s new Shakedown Package option”

Inside, the package includes white gauge faces for the instruments and a new Alpine stereo. Opt for the R/T Shaker version and the audio upgrades also include six speakers and a 275-watt amplifier. If that setup isn’t enough, you can get nine speakers with a 506-watt amp on the R/T Shaker Plus and 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker.

Regardless of the model, you’re going to need to shell out an extra $995
if you want to score a piece of Dodge’s new Shakedown Package option. Given what it’s offering, it’s an affordable price to pay to get upgrades with a proper amount of flair and personality.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Durango SRT By Mopar

SUV fans have been clamoring for a beefed-up version of the Durango SRT ever since Dodge launched the Challenger Hellcat. But it has yet to happen as of 2018. And I really don’t think that it will change anytime soon. Jeep is already offering the Cherokee Trackhawk above the SRT model, and I’m pretty sure FCA doesn’t want a re-bodied version of this model with a Dodge badge. But, if you’re not a Cherokee fan and you want a Durango SRT with a few special features, you’re going to have to settle for the Mopar upgrade that was unveiled at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show.

Mopar-made bundles for the Dodge Durango is nothing new; we’ve seen them in the past. But these new packages are a bit more comprehensive and include updates for both the exterior and interior, as well as the drivetrain. There’s no extra power to talk about, and this might be disappointing for some, but the performance exhaust and suspension are just enough to set Durango SRT apart from its standard siblings. And the body stripes and carbon-fiber trim add a certain degree of sportiness you don’t get in many SUVs.

Continue reading for the full story.

What makes the Dodge Durango SRT By Mopar special


2018 Dodge Durango SRT By Mopar - image 767447
“The dual-center stripes remind me of high-performance Mopars from the golden era of muscle cars”

These new Mopar features don’t turn the Durango into a more aggressive SUV, but they add a sportier twist to the already beefed-up SRT. Visually, it’s the “go-fast” stripes that catch the eye. Running across the entire length of the vehicle, but around the big NACA duct vent on the hood, the dual-center stripes remind me of high-performance Mopars from the golden era of muscle cars. It’s safe to say that this is what Dodge was aiming for all along. Five color options are available, including Bright Blue, Flame Red, Gunmetal Low Gloss (metallic), Low Gloss Black, Sterling Silver (metallic). The black stripes seem to have a carbon-fiber-like pattern, which is really cool.

Interior upgrades aren’t extensive either. Mopar only offers a new SRT Interior Appearance Group, which features a premium-wrapped instrument panel, Dinamica soft-touch headliner, and accent paint on speaker trim rings. The bundle also adds authentic carbon-fiber trim on the dashboard and the door panels. Far from impressive, but at least the SRT already comes with a wide range of exclusive features.


2018 Dodge Durango SRT By Mopar - image 767438
“The Durango SRT can be fitted with a new performance lowering spring kit enhances high-speed cornering”

Under the hood, the 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 engine remains unaltered at 475 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, but it gets a performance exhaust system for improved flow and a more aggressive sound. Made from chromium stainless steel for improved corrosion resistance, it also uses stainless steel band-style clamps for tight seals, and welded and polished four-inch tips for sportier performance. Dodge doesn’t say whether the new exhaust actually improved horsepower figures, but it will definitely make your Durango sound meaner.

Finally, the Durango SRT can be fitted with a new performance lowering spring kit enhances high-speed cornering stability and consistency. The new springs lower the SUV by an average of 15 mm (0.6 inches) closer to the road, which improves handling. Performance gains include less rear-end squat during acceleration, less nose-dive under braking, and reduced body roll while cornering.

So how much do these updates cost? The stripes will set you back $1,195, while the interior upgrade fetches $2,495. The performance exhaust comes in at $1,850, while lowering spring kit is very affordable at $325. Overall, it will cost you $5,865 to Moparize your Durango SRT. This converts to a final sticker of $68,860 for the SUV.

PostHeaderIcon For Sale: 1969 Dodge Charger Owned by Bruce Willis & Jay Kay

About as good as it gets! This 1969 Dodge Charger you see here is about as special as muscle cars get. And only half of that is down to the car itself,and the fact that it’s “Bullitt spec.” What sets this Charger apart is its previous owners, which include one Bruce Willis, and one Jay Kay.

These names alone are enough to give this machine a lifetime supply of cool. The gloss black 1969 Dodge Charger was originally bought by actress Demi Moore as a gift for her then husband, actor Bruce Willis. The man who hardly dies kept the Charger for 10 years, and only parted with it when a high-profile buyer came along. That was non other than Jamiroquai front-man Jay Kay who brought the car to the UK, where it is on sale now.

And if you thought this Charger couldn’t possibly get better – what with the movie car spec and celebrity ownership – in 2014 Jay Kay spent £25,000 to have the engine rebuilt and upgraded as part of an improvement package to make the car as near perfect as possible. That means this beast drives as good as it looks. And it does look really good. It is left hand drive and has a 8.2-litre V8 engine and 3-speed automatic gearbox. In spite of all this, when this 1969 Dodge Charger goes under the hammer at the Silverstone Auctions Race Retro Classic Car Sale on 24th February it is expected to fetch £50,000 and £60,000 only. That sounds like a bargain to us.






Nick Whale, managing director at Silverstone Auctions, said: “What can we say about this amazing car! Aside from the fact that it has been enjoyed by two massive global mega-stars – Bruce Willis and Jay Kay – it is also an unbelievable example in its own right. Indeed, its star-studded celebrity past will attract interest from bidders around the world, who will also appreciate that it is one of the best examples of a 1969 Dodge Charger ‘Bullitt’ spec model currently available to buy.”

PostHeaderIcon Sorry Folks, No Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Coming for 2019

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon may be called as such, but you might as well throw “unicorn” in its name because contrary to prevalent rumors surfacing these days, Dodge has no plans to follow up the 2018 Demon with a 2019 version. Don’t even bother wishing upon any stars or hoping for leprechauns at the end of the rainbow; it’s not happening. The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is a one-year model. No more, no less.


Sorry Folks, No Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Coming for 2019 - image 712595
“Keeping the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon as a 2018 model was actually the plan all along”

Keeping the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon as a 2018 model was actually the plan all along. Those rumors of a 2019 model were never really validated in any capacity so chock those up the Internet doing Internet things. Dodge indicated from the beginning that the Demon would only be built and sold for 2018, and in a recent interview with Allpar, company boss Tim Kuniskis doubled down on that position. “2018 only, one-and-done,” he said. “The people who sit back and wait for next year are going to miss out.”

Granted, just because Kuniskis’ comments are about as clear as unwavering as they can be, that’s not going to stop FCA executives from overruling his decision if they suddenly wake up with an itch to continue the Demon’s production well past its initial timetable. Doing so, though, could open a can of worms from upset customers who were led to believe that one of the Demon’s touchstone features is its exclusivity. The 3,300-unit limit was one of the reasons why the Demon sold out as quickly as it did. A lot of people bought them for the sole purpose of turning into prized collectibles. If Dodge adds more Demon models to the market, these models could have a massive impact — a negative one at that — on the value of the 2018 models. Worse, the automaker could be on the receiving end of lawsuits for false advertising, among other gripes.


Sorry Folks, No Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Coming for 2019 - image 713194
“The 3,300-unit limit was one of the reasons why the Demon sold out as quickly as it did”

Dodge has reached the point of no return for the Challenger SRT Demon. It showed its cards for the world to see, and the world reacted accordingly. If the company suddenly revealed an ace up its sleeve, it’s not going to be received positively by those who will think that they were duped out of a car that’s already trending up as a future collectible.

For now, don’t expect to see Dodge change its position. The Challenger SRT Demon will remain a 2018 model. But just because it is, it doesn’t mean that its components are going to be. Some of these components could be used in a number of applications. Some, in fact, are already being used by other models. The Demon’s flared body, for example, is now available as a widebody option for the Challenger Hellcat. Mechanically, the Demon’s Torque Reserve system has also found its way on the Jeep Trackhawk. If these components could be used on other models, you can be sure that FCA will find a way to use them. That includes the Demon’s warmongering 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine that produces 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque. An engine this potent is going to make its way into other models. That much you can count on.

But as far as a 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon? You can put those dreams to rest. It’s not happening.
