The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is going to turn heads and impress people who demand a lot out of their SUVs. Fortunately, not only does Dodge already have a great SUV on its hands, but the company is going out of its way to make it even better, which may be hard to believe. At the same time, Dodge is not rocking the boat and making huge changes. The one SUV with the biggest changes will be the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT.
For starters, the new Durango SRT will have a Hemi-V8 engine that generates an impressive 475 horsepower, and just as importantly, 470 lbs-ft of torque. With this power, the SUV can tow up to 8,600 pounds. The seven passenger SRT version is, according to Dodge, “the most powerful and capable three-row SUV”. With a 12-second quarter mile, along with a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds, the SUV is certainly quick, and it can even get up to 180 mph. With three rows of seats and plenty of towing capacity, most people will have no trouble picking up a 2018 Dodge Durango SRT. The SRT comes with a bunch of special performance features that include:
– New Brembo high-performance brakes that make it easier to enjoy mountain roads
– Updated exhaust system tuned to offer high-performance exhaust, which is modeled after the Charger SRT
– Eight-speed standard transmission, which was specifically and specially calibrated for the Durango SRT
– SRT hood with cold-air duct and heat extractors, which cools the motor and helps with overall performance
– Newly designed and updated seven-mode drive system, letting the driver precisely and quickly adjust drive settings, maximizing comfort and performance
The interior offers heated and ventilated front seats, along with second row captain’s chairs, and they are all trimmed in Nappa leather and suede. The SRT also offers drivers and passengers more. With the high-end version of the FCA’s Uconnect information system. The Uconnect infotainment system offers Apple CarPlay, Android Auto compatibility, navigation and SRT Performance Pages, all on an 8.4 inch touchscreen. To play around with the technology of a 2018 Dodge Durango SRT, check one out, when available, at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas.
While not exciting, anyone who wants to be safe and have a safer driving expeirence, will love the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT. With blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning with crash mitigation, rear cross-path detection and adaptive cruise control, drivers and passengers alike can feel safer while on the road. Given that the 2017 Dodge Durango got a four star overall rating, including five stars for side crash tests, and it’s easy to have confidence in the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT.
It’s easy to see why the Dodge Durango SRT is well-liked. Dodge has been going out of its way to create some of the highest end cars, trucks and SUVs with a lot of horsepower and torque. And for this reason, when it comes out in showrooms later in the year, buyers will probably snap them up in droves. While pricing details haven’t been released, it should be much cheaper than it’s higher priced counterparts.
FCA has just given an indication that the 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon has been trimmed down and made even lighter than the Hellcat. That’s because Dodge has found a way to trim as much as 200 pounds off of the 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon. That will allow it to usurp the company’s fast, powerful and wildly popular Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. The company is in the process of resurrecting the Demon nameplate and using it on the Challenger’s top performance trim. The Demon name was used during the 1970s as part of the Dart performance coupes lineup, and it’s being given new life while Dodge is phasing out the Dart compact sedan.
Dodge announced the rebirth of the Demon a few weeks ago, and the company plans to roll out new digital ad spots every week while giving little bits of information at a time about what it’s doing with the performance line. The company has said that the New York Auto Show, which will be held in April, is where it will unveil the innovative new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The company released a 24-second teaser recently that had the title “Reduction”. In it, Dodge showed a translucent depiction of what the Challenger looks like as it sits on a giant scale being weighed. The teaser is set in a type of industrial hellscape. Dodge used this teaser as a way of announcing it has made numerous adjustments to the Challenger that are designed to make it leaner and meaner. The changes were made to the interior construction, the components, the brakes, suspension, steering and to the wheels. This has enabled the company to lighten the current version of the vehicle and make it 200 pounds lighter than the model that’s currently on the market. The Challenger SRT Hellcat that is available today weighs about 4,450 pounds. The soon to be released Demon will be about 4.5 percent lighter than that. To check out any Dodge Challenger, head on over to Chapman Dodge Las Vegas. By checking out a 2017 Dodge Challenger, you can see what’s in store for the 2018 version.
Although that is not a very large reduction by any means, with it, even if the company decides to keep the 6.2-liter V-8 engine that it is currently using in its 2017 SRT Hellcat, the reduction in weight will help drivers to get a lot more mileage out of it.
However, most automotive enthusiasts will be very surprised if as the company is making all of those changes that it does not tweak its current engine a little bit. Some people even think that Dodge may even do a full-blown overhaul of the engine. People that have a real interest in the new Challenger SRT Hellcat will have to stay tuned over the next few weeks for more updates.
The New York Auto Show will take place in April which is in about 10 weeks. At that time they will have the opportunity to see the new, 200 pounds lighter Demon up close. For people that are interested in the new Demon the next few weeks will be a very exciting time as Dodge keeps dropping hints.
The new Ram 1500 Rebel “Black” is here, and boy is this an amazing truck. It’s a special edition of the popular Ram 1500 Rebel that is sure to make a splash. The truck traces its lineage to what is among the fastest-selling Ram off-road powerhouses. But this truck adds the design component of dark features. It is a package that’s available with all of the Rebel colors. The Rebel ‘Black’ package comes with black wheels and brush guard as well a theme-matched all-black interior. It’s a look that makes a dramatic statement and gives truck lovers a chance to show the world their inner rebel while driving one of the best trucks on the road today.
Dodge gave the public a first look at the Rebel Black version of the Ram 1500 Rebel just before it is officially introduced at this year’s North American International Auto Show. The truck looks great inside and out. The interior of the Rebel Black boasts doors with black anodized bezels. The vehicle also has the bezels on the instrument panel, center console as well as the gauge cluster trim rings. It also features all-black heated seats that have black ‘Rebel’ embroidery with accent stitching that is Light Slate Grey. The embroidery runs along the center console lid, instrument panel, seats and doors. Deep black mats cover the floor. Buyers can also opt for luxury Black leather Katzhin seats. To feel the luxury of any Ram is sure to impress, and if you want to also experience the power, check one out at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas.
The new special edition Rebel Black Ram 1500 comes with a crew cab that provides all the room people need to store their stuff, carry multiple passengers and still have all head and legroom space for the driver and passengers to relax and feel comfortable whether at work or out having fun. Under the hood, the new Rebel Black special edition Ram 1500 has more than enough power to go anywhere and do anything. Buyers can choose between having their truck powered by a 3.6 liter Pentastar V-6 engine or Dodge’s legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine. Either one allows the Rebel Black Ram to take on any challenge.
To many Ram 1500 enthusiasts, this new Rebel version of the Ram is priceless because of the way it looks, feels and performs. But when it hits the dealer showrooms in March 2017 it will cost a cool $45,590. That’s a small price to pay for a truck that is sure to turn heads and turn other motorists green with envy when they hear its engine roar and see the truck zooming down the highway or zipping nimbly through in-town traffic. This is the type of truck people of any age would love to own. It has it all when it comes to power, technological advances, connectivity, a smooth ride and superior handling.
If you are tired of just fitting in or simply want to make a statement by flashing your inner rebel, take a closer look and test drive the new special edition Ram 1500 Rebel Black. It’s in a class by itself.
The Dodge Hellcat and Dodge Challenger have both been a huge success for the car manufacturer. You may think that with all the success so far that Dodge would be raising prices quickly and drastically. But this isn’t the case, and the company is largely keeping prices in-line, which should make any car buyer happy.
Dodge.com recently released pricing information, and while some models have seen a slight price increase for the new model year, the popular 707 horsepower SRT Hellcat models will have the same pricing as 2016 models, and the company will even be adding some new features. Last year, Dodge caused a bit of a stir when it raised prices for the 2016 Charger and Hellcat. Though, this was probably a wise decision since the 2015 Hellcat cars had massive waiting lists.
But, luckily, even with a few additions for the new 2017 model year, the newest Challenger and Charger will carry the same MSRP as the 2016 versions. With lighter wheels, a backlit steering wheel emblem, an improved UConnect system and added Hellcat branding both on the inside and out, the new version is certainly a better one and will help you get around, control your technology and drive safer.
Dodge, last year, increased the price of the Challenger and Chargers, but it also added some new standard features. Because there was an additional equipment and corresponding price increase, Dodge fans were certainly preoccupied, but there is nothing to worry about as there will be no price increase, even with all the added goodies. The 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT hellcat will come with a 6-speed manual transmission and has the exact same MSRP of $65,290, which includes the $1,700 Gas Guzzler Tax and the $1,095 destination fee.
Of course, with the Hellcat, one can add the heavy duty 8-speed automatic transmission, which will cost $2,995, and the dual carbon fiber stripes still add $995 to the final price. The painted satin black hood will add $1,995 to the final price, and the power sunroof is still available as an add-on for $1,995. Either way, with or without these added extras, the Hellcat Challenger and Charger will certainly not rise in price, and if you are looking to test drive one out, you should head to Chapman Dodge Las Vegas and see how powerful and fun to drive both of these cars are.
The truth of the matter is, if you are looking to get a Dodge muscle car, you should really look at the 707 horsepower SRT Hellcat as it is the most powerful of them all. While other companies have fast and powerful cars with big engines, nobody else is producing true, old school sports cars that turn heads. The amazing thing about the new SRT Hellcat is not only do you get to relive the old days when cars had a lot of power, but you can also get added safety features, plenty of technology and decent gas mileage, considering the size of the engine.
Dodge has done it again. The company has long been known for its powerful muscle cars, and now with the release of the 2017 Challenger GT, Dodge has given automotive enthusiasts the ultimate gift. The company has introduced the world’s first all-wheel-drive muscle coupe. Just when you couldn’t decide what to give the gearhead in your life comes this gift seemingly from the automotive gods. The 2017 Dodge Challenger GT is sure to redefine what people mean when they talk about an all-terrain, all-weather vehicle. This vehicle is designed to handle inclement weather and rugged mountain roads.
With this new more versatile vehicle, Dodge is in the process of dramatically changing the existing muscle car paradigm. While the Challenger has been the most functional and wide-ranging muscle car ever since it was first introduced, the company has now taken it to an entirely new level. Dodge has given the 2017 Challenger GT a new 305 horsepower engine and added all-wheel drive to what already was an outstanding automobile. The changes now enable the Challenger GT to stretch geographic and functional boundaries a whole lot further.
This kind of innovation is what the car buying public has come to expect from Dodge. The company has long been known for pushing the boundary when it comes to raw power and superior handling. Chrysler changed the automotive choice for two generations with its introduction of the minivan. Now the company is doing it again with this new Challenger GT. No longer do off-roading enthusiasts have to gravitate towards a truck or an SUV. Now they can blast through streams and mud in style. This could lead to the dawning of a new day when it comes to the way people see off-roading vehicles.
Once again Dodge has raised the bar when it comes to automotive performance. The 2017 Dodge Challenger GT signals that it’s no longer enough to attempt to mimic the power in the company’s long line of muscle cars. If companies hope to compete, its automobiles will now have to be a lot more versatile. Dodge has raised the bar, and with it the expectations of the driving public. This new vehicle shows that power, style and off-road ability are no longer mutually exclusive. And once again, it is Dodge that is leading the way to this new automotive frontier. Dodge has a lot of great vehciles, and if for some reason, the 2017 Challenger GT is not your style, you can take other cars for a test drive at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas.
Dodge will release the 2017 Dodge Challenger GT sometime during the winter. That leaves plenty of time for people with hopes of driving this groundbreaking automobile to help old ladies across the street, volunteer to help the poor or do anything else they think will get them on Santa’s ‘Nice’ list. And it’s well worth it to drive a legendary automobile that is sure to be the envy of all that hear its engine roar and see it zooming through even the roughest tracks and trails. With this new boundary smashing automobile, Dodge has now given the automotive world a peek at the future of the muscle car. A future where Dodge vehicles continue to hold sway.
