This means that Christmas is upon us and everybody businesses, big and small, is banking on the season of buying, and Dodge is no exception.

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

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

If you think the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is not powerful enough for you, then perhaps you are way too demanding, but your power obsession aside, it looks like your cry for more power in this American muscle did not fall on deaf ears because someone has pumped up that monster and it is called Hellcat X.

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. It is a pair of racing goggle, alright, but one that’s mean for motocross. Continue reading RCH Racing and Ken Roczen Collaborates with Dodge for Limited Edition Oakley Racing Goggle
