Dodge Charger

If you are a fan of the Dodge Charger and Dodge vehicles in general, you know how great they are and how fun they are to drive. Dodge knows this, and the company is always looking to improve upon its image and its cars. In fact, with the Dodge Charger, it would be easy to rest on its laurels and enjoy the dividends as the car is well-loved, but Dodge is no ordinary car company, and the new Charger will slim down and run a turbo four in the next generation.

Originally introduced in 2005 as a 2006 model, the Charger has been around for a long time, especially when you consider other brands and models out there. It has enjoyed two refreshes in the past, and each time it has improved on already great versions of its vehicles. Still, the company wants to keep the car going strong and ever-popular, and it is reportedly going under anther face lift one last time for 2019. After that, some huge changes are in store for this great car. To see how great of a car the Dodge Charger is, give one a spin at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas

One thing that may bring down the Dodge Charger is the weight. Depending on the engine size, it is currently between 3,900 and nearly 4,6000 pounds. While true, it has a beast of an engine and still offers impressive quarter mile and 0-60 times of around 5.0 seconds, depending on the size of the engine and car. With the weight loss, the car should get a boost in gas mileage, though it is probably not on most people’s minds. However, a weight reduction should also give drivers a better feel and quicker track times. The target weight for the car, according to the company, is 3,500 pounds.

If you have been a car buff for along time, you may remember the front-wheel drive four-cylinder Charger in the early 80s. If you do, you probably remember how great of a car it was. The recharged sedan will use a twin-turbo offering 300 horses and a four-cylinder engine. This is the same engine that is under development for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Don’t get too excited yet; it will still be a long time before we see one on the road. But, if you are looking to get a Dodge Charger now, you will get a quality vehicle as there is plenty of Dodge Charger Inventory, along with other cars, available. 

The advantage of the four-banger engine should be obvious. First and foremost, it should be more efficient and offer better fuel economy. While true, the fuel economy on current models is not bad, even with the larger engines. Not only that, with the four-cylinder, you will have plenty of power as it is a turbo. All in all, it should be a good fit for the Charger as you will get the best of both worlds – speed and power, along with fuel economy.

The Dodge Charger is a great car, and if you are interested in checking one out, you won’t regret it. If you can wait for a few years, you may be able to get your hands on an even better version, which may be hard to imagine.

Challenger

 

The 2016 Dodge Charger, Challenger and Ram models have just been released and fans of these powerful automobiles are ecstatic. As always the new Dodge models are impressive. The vehicles not only have all the latest safety and connectivity technology, they are comfortable, durable, versatile, and have power to burn. Plus all three of them look great. Read on and we will share some of the information on the features they have, how good these powerful, stylish, new automobiles look, and the price consumers will have to pay to take one off the dealers lot now that they’ve been released.

The 2016 Ram 1500 comes with a base V-6, 3.6 liter engine which boasts 305 horsepower and generates 269 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with an 8-speed transmission. That combination allows it to carry heavy loads yet still get great fuel economy. Although this half-ton pickup is built Ram tough, inside it has all the creature comforts any driver or passenger needs and wants. In fact, the interior of the 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 is incredible with its control system, big screen, and a great sound system. Plus the truck delivers a smooth ride. Outside, its high-strength steel lightweight frame, aerodynamic grille, and low-rolling-resistance tires make this truck, which sells for $26,145, look good enough to go anywhere you want. To see what it can do for you in the real world, check one out at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas.

Most automotive experts agree the 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat with its 707 horsepower, 650 pound-feet of torque, and a supercharged 6.2 liter V8 HEMI engine rules the marketplace as the muscle car with the most power. Some call the Challenger SRT Hellcat monstrous because of the power it generates. When you throw in the fact that this beast can go from zero to sixty in a lightening-fast 3.9 seconds, its easy to see why this car is getting so much attention. Its top speed of an amazing 198.8 miles per hours is another reason this 2016 Dodge takes the crown. With its muscular good looks, iconic pedigree, and unsurpassed street credibility, the $50,190 selling price Car and Driver reports is a reasonable price to pay for this speed demon. If you would like to take a look at any Dodge inventory, you are not going to regret it as you can easily find something that fits your needs and budget.

That roaring sound you hear is the 2016 Dodge Charger terrorizing the competition with its powerful engine. Fear is the right response for the competition when the Charger’s SX model with its 300 horsepower, 3.6 liter six-cylinder engine begins to growl. Sheer terror is what happens when people realize that the 2016 Dodge Charger R/T they just challenged has a V8, 5.7 liter Hemi engine under the hood. Pity the fool if it’s the optional ‘Road and Track Edition’ which has the performance exhaust system.

What should make foolhardy challengers very afraid, is that the new Charger has the latest steering technology and an advanced suspension system, so the driver can control this amazing automobile with ease. Add seven airbags, traction control, antilock brakes, brake assistance, and a 5-star NHTSA safety rating, and the 2016 Dodge Charger’s base price of $27,995 seems like a steal.

 

2015 Dodge Challenger 392 HEMI® Scat Pack Shaker    2015 Dodge Charger and 2015 Dodge Challenger Refreshed

While subtlety may not be the forte of the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger, their mid-cycle refreshes are—sort of. For 2015, both the Charger and Challenger received cosmetic and mechanical upgrades to keep the cars fresh, stylish and powerful.

With Dodge celebrating its 100th birthday this year, the brand is going all out with its full-size sedan and muscle car. You can rest assured Chapman Dodge will be celebrating, too.

Dodge Charger

According to the folks at Dodge, the 1968 Charger inspired the 2015 redesign. The goal was to make the Charger appear smaller and lighter without actually compromising interior space and cargo volume. The exterior dimensions are virtually unchanged, although the roof and doors are the only panels to be carried over. The underpinnings are the same as well, except for new cast-aluminum axles and housings.

Power comes from either Chrysler’s 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 or the base 3.6-liter V-6 mill. The V-8 engine produces 370 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque. The six-cylinder produces a modest 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Both engines are paired with Chrysler’s eight-speed automatic transmission, the only choice available. All-wheel drive is still available, although it now features an active transfer case that automatically disconnects the front axle when it is not needed. Dodge says this can improve fuel economy by up to 5 percent.

Slipping inside, the interior features new seats, extensive use of soft-touch materials and eight trim packages. There is a new three-spoke steering wheel with optional paddle shifters, which allow brisk, 400-millisecond shifts; that speed is cut nearly in half to 250 milliseconds in sport mode.

Dodge Challenger

The Challenger is the classic muscle car reincarnate. There is no other car on the road that looks as cool or as retro as the Challenger. While the Challenger has been extensively refreshed for 2015, its 1971 roots are still clearly visible.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger sees the front and rear fascias redesigned. There are other changes that include a deeper air dam, LED halo surrounding the headlights, a bigger hood bulge and an optional Shaker hood. LED taillights are still out back on the refreshed rear.

Like the Charger, the Challenger is little changed from the previous offering.

Inside, the front seats have been redesigned. Upholstery choices range from cloth to Nappa leather, with the option of heating and cooling for leather trims.

Power is a staple of the Challenger and 2015 is no different. Power comes from a base 3.6-liter V-6 engine up to the burly 5.7- and 6.4-liter Hemi V-8s. The 5.7-liter Hemi makes 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. The 6.4-liter produces 470 horsepower and 47 lb-ft of torque. Both Hemi engines are paired with a six-speed manual, although the eight-speed automatic—with paddles—is an available option.

For 2015 Dodge is enhancing both the Charger and Challenger with great new features and trim offerings that make the two vehicles class acts. For more information about the two, visit Las Vegas Dodge today.

Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger

When thinking of the legacy of the Dodge brand, one word should come to mind: muscle.  At Chapman Dodge, that legacy lives on in the throwback Dodge Challenger and the oft-updated Dodge Charger.

The Dodge Challenger was introduced in its present form in 1970, and it has since been the quintessential “pony car.”  Sporting a massive engine and the low, flat, two-door body befitting of its heritage, the present day Challenger features several trim packages with 4-speed and 5-speed automatic transmissions as well as a 6-speed manual option.  The common thread between every iteration of the Challenger is power: the smallest engine available is a 3.6-liter V6, ranging up to the legendary 392 cubic inch (6.4L) HEMI V8.

Edmunds clocked the 6.4-liter SRT-8 at 12.6 seconds in the quarter-mile, while the base Challenger’s V6 engine manages 27 miles-per-gallon fuel efficiency on the highway.  The Dodge Challenger truly offers everything that a muscle car aficionado desires.

The history of the Dodge Charger is somewhat more complex than that of its pony car counterpart.  The Charger moniker has been used to describe everything from two-door pony cars to the current four-door sedan that deftly masters the challenge of blending performance and comfort together.

Mated to the same engine options as those present in the Challenger, the Charger’s spacious interior received substantial redesigns from previous models to tame its substantial power.  The Charger takes just enough from its muscle car lineage to satisfy your inner gearhead while simultaneously appealing to the mature sensibilities of the 21st Century driver.

Derived from the same Mercedes platform at the Chrysler 300, Edmunds describes the new Dodge Charger as a muscle car that the entire family can enjoy.  Style, performance, and drivability from the track to the city streets – the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger are ready to light up Las Vegas (or anywhere else their driver takes them).
