2017 Dodge Challenger GT – American Muscle Goes All-Wheel-Drive

First, it was the Charger, now it is the Challenger to get the AWD treatment. The 2017 Dodge Challenger GT, as it is called, becomes the world’s first and only all-wheel-drive American Muscle coupe, which also makes it a segment-first. So, I guess it is goodbye to oversteer and hello to ‘who cares what weather it is now?’ Maybe. I don’t know. American Muscle purists may not be amused, but amused or not, it is here. In case you are all enthusiastic about it, you’d be glad (or not) to know that Challenger GT AWD shares the same all-wheel-drive system as the Dodge Charger AWD with active transfer case and front-axle disconnect.

Dodge Durango Shaker Concept Is A Frankenstein Of Various Dodge Rides

So settling down with a family compels you to forgo your sports car dream in favor of ‘more practical’ minivan or SUV? Well, that’s not be all and end all, really. Why? Just take a look at the Dodge Durango Shaker Concept. The normally tamed Durango SUV is one of the six Mopar-customized creations to hit up SEMA 2016 and it broke every rules in the SUV rule book. First, it is not tame at all – if its 6.4L HEMI engine lurking under the functional custom shaker hood that kicks out 485 horses and 475 lb-ft of torque, can help it and it surely don’t look tame either – thanks to the various custom works that practically turn it into a lean, mean SUV.

Hennessey Just Made the World’s Fastest Production Sedan Even More Powerful

Do a sedan, which is typically use for ferrying family, needs to have lots of horsepower?

Slapped with HPE850 performance upgrade package, which includes a new ECU, high flow air filter element, lower pulley upgrade that increases the boost by 1-2 psi, port matched throttle body, and ported supercharger housing.

RCH Racing and Ken Roczen Collaborates with Dodge for Limited Edition Oakley Racing Goggle

This come as an odd collaboration to us. Anyway, as the post title says, motocross racing team RCH and its newly inducted motocross world champion, German Ken Roczen, has announced a special pair of racing goggle (for motocross, naturally), the Dodge SRT Hellcat Limited Edition Goggle, in collaboration with Oakley. Things get weirder as this pair of goggle is actually made to celebrate the 707hp supercharged HEMI V8 engine, but is signed by Roczen and will be worn by him at the Budds Creek Pro Motocross Nation in Mechanicsville, Md, on June 27, 2015.

Meet the Fastest Street-legal Viper Track Car, the 2016 Dodge Viper ACR

How do you like to hit a track with a fast track car and be able to get home with the same car? Sounds good? Well, then you might want to take look at the 2016 Dodge Viper American Club Racer (ACR). Said to be the fastest street-legal Viper track car ever, the 2016 Viper ACR is powered by a hand-built, all-aluminum 8.4L V10 petrol unit pushing out 645 horsepower and 600 lb-ft (812.6 Nm) of torque. And mind you, that number is coming from an engine without force induction of any form. Heralding the return of the ultimate American hand-built, street-legal race car, you can be sure the Viper ACR is armed to the teeth – starting with an Extreme Aero package that achieved almost a ton of downforce at the car’s top speed of 177 mph (285 kph).

With 707 HP, The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Is The World’s Most Powerful And Fastest Sedan

the Challenger SRT Hellcat might have blew your mind with its insane, if not unnecessary, 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, but what if you have a family to ferry? two doors ain’t going to be anywhere near practical and that’s why there is the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, stuffed with the same supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat engine under the bonnet, which naturally, offers the same ridiculous 707 horses and 650 lb-ft of torque as the other Hellcat. Dodge is claiming the Charger SRT Hellcat the “quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world” (well, right out of the factory, that is), which it has three numbers to back it up: 11 seconds quarter mile sprint, under 13 seconds to get from naught to100 mph (160 km/h), and 204 mph (328 km/h) top speed.

Meet The Most Powerful Challenger Ever: The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

whenever we come across a factory-souped up vehicle, we always said the same thing: get it if you want the performance and spend less time at the shop. the same applies to the recently announced 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, but the real kicker is, it is the most powerful Challenger ever, driven by an all-new 6.2-liter HEMI supercharged V8, which happens to be the most powerful V8 unit Chrysler Group has ever produced. so just how much ponies this beastly engine turns out? according to Dodge, you can expect nothing less than 600 horses. though no numbers were provided for the torque. it will be interesting to see how much metal-twisting this thing will turn out. anyway, this monstrous power will fed through either a six-speed stick shift gearbox or an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic, sending them to its rear wheels. the gearbox also touts four driving modes – default, sport, track and custom – with different parameters across steering, traction and suspension, to suit the intended driving condition.

Dodge Tomahawk Motorcycle

technically speaking, the Dodge Tomahawk motorcycle isn’t really a motorcycle. it has four wheels – two front and two back – though each pair are pretty close to each other that you might consider them as one. anyway, this isn’t the newest stuff – in fact it debuted some ten years ago, at the 2003 North American International Auto Show as a concept. it had to be a concept cos’ beside having four wheels, it has a supercar motor powering it and in this case, a 500 ponies 8.3-liter V10 SRT10 engine sourced from the Dodge Viper which confuses us further: so is it a very narrow car or is it purely a monster motorcycle? in any case, this perfect non-street legal ride is a reality now and if you have like €420,000 to spare, it could be yours.
