PostHeaderIcon Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Octane Edition

If there’s anything sexier than a Dodge Charger, it is a Dodge Charger equipped with even more fierce-looking equipment. Earlier this week, Dodge announced the 2019 Charger SRT HellcatOctane Edition that is available in two shades – Pitch Black and White Knuckle. My favorite, of course, being the darker one. The Octane Edition is purely cosmetic and does not add any extra power to the beast. But, when you have over 700 ponies under the hood, you don’t really need to tweak the car mechanically.

PostHeaderIcon Gazoo Racing is Breathing New Life into the MkIII and MkIV Toyota Supra in a Porsche-Approved Style

The all-new MkV Toyota Supra is all everyone is talking about these days. But soon enough, two of its predecessors, the MkIII and MkIV Supras, will grab slices of the headlines now that Toyota’s Gazoo Racing has announced plans to start up production of original parts for both models, as part of the GR Heritage Parts Project. The specifics on when, where, and what parts will be available will be announced at a later date, though if you own a MkIII or MkIV Supra, you’re not waiting for the information to arrive before you start celebrating. The important thing is your precious Supras can once again see the light of day with all original parts in tow.

.split800232

Chevy’s resident muscle car and Mustang fighter went under the scalpel for the 2019 model to bring it up to speed in the looks and technology department. As part of this mid-cycle update, Chevy also added in the 1LE package for the Camaro Turbo to make it more track ready while updating various components of other trim levels to help keep them fresh while still standing out in the crowd. There are no power updates as part of this update, but with the new tech and new looks, the Camaro should be able to hold its own against the Mustang and the Challenger for a few more years.

Update 05/03/2019: Chevy has decided to update the 2020 Camaro SS with cues borrowed from the Camaro Shock Concept that was showcased at the 2018 SEMA show due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback. Check out the updates in our review below!

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Challenger Scat Pack Stars & Stripes Edition

The Dodge Challenger Stars & Stripes Edition is a special-edition package for the 2020-model-year Challenger. Essentially a visual upgrade with some unique features, the Stars & Stripes Edition pays tribute to the men and women who served the United States. The package is available with three trims, the GT RWD, R/T, and the R/T Scat Pack.

Dodge says it launched this package because it has the highest percentage of active military buyers in the industry, while the Challenger and Charger have the highest percentage of active military buyers in their respective segments. Let’s find out what this package adds to the muscle car in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon New Performance Package Pushes the 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost to 330 Horsepower

.split702228

When Ford gave the Mustang an independent rear suspension for the sixth-gen 2015 model year, many critics labeled it as a strong move into bona-fide sports-car territory. The Blue Oval is once again moving the needle by changing up the EcoBoost ‘Stang’s Performance Package, which now includes revised suspension bits, updated aero, and critically, more horsepower. With 330 ponies under the hood, has the four-cylinder Mustang evolved the nameplate beyond its muscle car roots?

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Revs and Prowls the Streets of Las Vegas: Video

Making its big public debut at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is an absolutely beastly machine. Rocking a hyper-aggressive aero package with a plus-sized front intake and GT-style rear wing, a carbon fiber and suede interior, and a supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 blown to produce well over 700 horsepower, there’s no denying the appeal of this modern muscle car. Now we’re getting a listen to its exhaust note and a look at it on the streets of Las Vegas thanks to this recent post from YouTube user Speed Phenom.

Shot at a private event put on by FoMoCo, the video features a few nice glory shots of the GT500, as well as loads of info from a Shelby rep addressing the attending guests. Cutting through the PR talk, there are a few things that standout during the speech, including the assertion that the Shelby team is still working to pin down the GT500’s final horsepower figure “until the bitter end” (hence the “700+” number currently making the rounds), as well as a few performance numbers like a “sub-11” quarter mile and “mid-3’s” for the sprint to 60 mph. The video ends with a romp across the streets of Las Vegas.

If you’re hungry for anything and everything 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, then this is the video for you.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS – Driven

Mustangs and Camaro are so common these days, that one may think their commercial
success is more about cheap pricing than real merit. The truth could not be farther and the Chevy Camaro SS is here to remind everyone, especially those of German origins, that American muscle icons are not only alive but Reborn.

The Camaro/Mustang fratricide competition has pushed each generations further in terms of handling and overall build quality. The 2019 Camaro is now a very mature, modern sport car. The high displacement V8 rumbles above the turbocharged imports, and the many years of testing at the Nurburgring is paying of large dividends. Add to the mix a newly found interest for quality interior and you have a car Europeans would dream to put their hand on. So let’s go ahead and dive into this ’Americana driving machine’.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE

With forced-fed LT4 from the Corvette Z06, crazy aerodynamics, and a price tag of around $60,000, the Camaro ZL1 1LE is one of the best track day cars on the market in terms of performance and bang for your buck. Thanks to a number of weight-saving measures – including a fixed-back rear seat and thinner glass – the 1LE is actually around 60 pounds lighter than the standard model. It’s said to be capable of hitting 60 mph in around 3.4 seconds and a quarter mile in around 11.3 seconds. For 2019, you can even have it with GM’s new 10-speed automatic which should make that quarter-mile time, and it’s time around the track just a little bit faster. Anyway, we thought the ZL1 1LE deserved a little bit of love, so we decided to make it our wallpaper of the day. Check out our favorite below or run through the gallery to pick your own favorite.

PostHeaderIcon Lego Offers Classic 1967 Ford Mustang Kit to Fulfill Your Pony Car Dreams

We love all things automotive, especially when we can build it ourselves and display it on a shelf. And that’s why we adore Lego’s various car builder kits, the latest of which is a throwback to the Golden Age of muscle cars. Say hello to the 1967 Ford Mustang, now Lego’d!

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Might be Offered in Two States of Tune

Ford Mustang GT - $35,095

Back in 2017, Ford axed the V-6 engine option for its iconic Mustang muscle car, leaving a rather sizable gap in terms of price and power between the base trim-level four-cylinder and the upgraded V-8 GT. Now, it’s looking like the Blue Oval might change that with the upcoming 2020 model year update.

PostHeaderIcon One of Dodge’s Most Iconic Paint Colors is Making a Comeback at the Chicago Auto Show

Don’t expect to see a new Dodge Challenger or even a new Dodge Charger at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. But Dodge is bringing a Challenger and a Charger to the Windy City anyway; it’s just that the headline act isn’t either of the two performance cars. It’s the paint they’re wearing, which Dodge calls “Sublime.” The importance of the paint scheme shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who remember it. The Sublime finish is arguably one of the most iconic paint colors that the Challenger and Charger have worn in their respective lifetimes. 2015 was the last time Dodge offered it on the Challenger, and we haven’t seen the Charger sport it since 2007. Now it’s back, and, according to Dodge, it’s available as a factory color option across the entire range of Challenger and Charger models.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Charger

Dodge vehicles have always been known for their bold, in-your-face looks. To spice things up a little, Dodge has decided to bring back the lime green color that was seen on almost all the Dodge cars in the 1970s, and it’ll do so at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.
With the 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 and the Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE being in the news lately, is this a move out of desperation? Perhaps, Dodge has taken up the ’challenge’ to ’charge’ its range. Bad pun, eh?

Update 02/14/2019: We’ve updated this review with images and video of the lime green 2019 Dodge Charger taken at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. Check them out for yourself in the gallery at the bottom of this page!

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 vs 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Redeye

The Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 returned after five years with more power than ever, a menacing body kit and, for the very first time, a race-spec rear wing. With more than 700 horsepower coming from a supercharged V-8, the Shelby GT500 is notably more powerful than its traditional rival, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. So which modern muscle car is good enough to compete with the 2020 Shelby GT500? I think it’s the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, a car that FCA created to bridge the gap between the regular Hellcat and the drag-prepped Demon. Here’s how they compare.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Challenger

Dodge reintroduced the Challenger nameplate in 2008 with a brand-new third generation. Now, the tire-roasting lead sled is heading for an update for the 2019 model year, and it’s poised to receive new exterior colors inspired by Dodge’s racing history, including a searing-shade of green called Sublime. What’s more, the Challenger will get additional standard go-fast equipment to add real performance to the visual theatrics.

Update 02/14/2019: We’ve updated this review with video and images of the 2019 Dodge Challenger taken at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. Check them out in the gallery at the bottom of this page!

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE

Unveiled for the 2017 model year, the sixth-generation Camaro ZL1 is by far the most impressive Camaro with forced-induction built to date. Powered by the the same LT4 engine introduced with the Corvette Z06, the latest ZL1 packs 650 horsepower, looks incredibly menacing, and costs a little more than $60,000, an amazing sticker given the performance. But, as incredible as it may sound, Chevrolet just managed to the make ZL1 even better by giving it the 1LE upgrade.

Previously available on the SS model, the 1LE package was made available for the V-6 version too for the sixth-generation Camaro. Now, Chevy devised a similar package for the ZL1 and claims that the supercharged 1LE is the most track-capable Camaro ever, meaning it should outgun the bonkers (and now discontinued) Z/28 too. These claims are backed by racing-based suspension and aero technologies, as well as exclusive Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, and a range of weight-saving measure. How powerful and fast is it? How much it cost? How does it compare to the Shelby GT350 and the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat? Read my review below to get all the answers.

Update 01/29/2019: Chevy has updated the Camaro ZL1 1LE for 2019. Check out the drivetrain section below for the full scoop.

PostHeaderIcon Will the Hybrid Mustang Feature a V-8 Paired with an Electric Motor?

The times, they are a’changing, and that’s definitely the case for the Ford Mustang. The latest news and rumors point to what could be an upcoming hybrid powerplant for the iconic muscle car, as well as an electrified future for the Blue Oval as a whole.

PostHeaderIcon Car For Sale: 1993 Callaway C8 Camaro Six-speed with Only 1,135 Miles on the Clock

Callaway is a long-time tuner of GM products although it focuses on Chevy cars, trucks and SUVs. The fourth-generation Camaro didn’t escape the clutches of Callaway, though, and this car is the prototype that toured all major auto shows in the mid-’90s and was on the cover of Motor Trend in 1994. It boasts a 404 horsepower, 6.3-liter, V-8.

The F-Body Camaro that debuted in 1992 was seen by Reeves Callaway’s company as a “lower cost platform than the Corvette with a larger market.” As such, the American tuner and manufacturer debuted their own high-performance version in 1993. The ’SuperNatural Camaro’ kit was available with a variety of options in terms of both the body and performance-enhancing parts. The Camaros sent new from Chevy to Callaway built to the top specification right at their shop were known as C8s. Callaway also offered the ’SuperNatural’ kit for the C4 Corvette and, in the same vein, the Corvette delivered brand-new to Callaway and equipped with these mods are known as Callaway Corvette C6s.

PostHeaderIcon The Superformance GR-1 May Borrow the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500’s Power V-8 Engine

Superformance had signed a deal with Ford and Shelby in the last decade to recreate the magic known as the GR-1. The GR-1 was unveiled to the world 14 years back as a working prototype, but the car never made it to Superformance’s line up. Fast forward to 2019, and the project is about to be resurrected, but what’s more important now is what will give it motivation. When asked about the drivetrain, the tuning company’s CEO has hinted that the GR-1 could use 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500’s V-8 engine!

PostHeaderIcon 16 Little-Known Facts About The Astounding 2020 Shelby GT500

In an effort to move ahead and push the boundaries of what the pony car can do, Ford introduced the 2020 Shelby GT500 at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show. It is the most powerful Ford ever. It is the fastest Mustang ever. It has the biggest vent ever fitted to a production Ford. It is basically a race car you can use on the road as well. And this is a tale about the 2020 Shelby GT500’s most amazing facts and quirks. It’s a winner, this one. For sure.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

Dating back to the late 1960s, the Shelby GT500 returned in 2019 after a five-year hiatus. The first iteration of the sixth-gen Mustang to sport a supercharged V-8 engine, this GT500 is also the most powerful street-legal Ford, even when compared to the Ford GT supercar. The GT500 also borrows some tech from the GT, as well as from the race-spec Mustang GT4. The first GT500 in five years is aimed at the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. And, although final specs aren’t yet available, it seems that it will have enough power to compete with both. Arguably the biggest news is that the supercharged V-8 delivers in excess of 700 horsepower, but enthusiasts also have to cope with the fact that Ford doesn’t offer a manual gearbox. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.
