2011 Dodge Challenger – Quarter Mile or Road Race?

September 21st, 2010 1 comment

Dodge is turning up the heat with their 2011 Dodge Challenger. To compete with the likes of the 2011 Chevy Camaro Z28 and SS, and 2011 Ford Mustang GT, Dodge is releasing their 2011 Challenger SRT with a 6.4 liter Hemi V8 with 475 hp and 460 torque, brembo brakes, updated and performance based steering and suspension systems, a performance display, and the SRT Track Experience Program (a full date of professional instructors teaching you to push the limits of your SRT).

With the Brembo brakes and suspension upgrades, it seems that Dodge is getting more concerned about the skidpad numbers for those who have complained the car doesn’t handle as good as the 2011 Ford Mustang GT.

Besides the steering wheel, the interior of the 2011 Challenger is much better than the 2011 Camaro, and a notch above the 2011 Mustang GT (although if Ford stopped with the retro dash gauges, I’d think the Mustang GT has the best interior).

The 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT could be a much better car if they simply give it a weight reduction, give it better 1/4 mile gearing, and make it different than the Camaro and Mustang. My suggestion? Release a smaller displacement Hemi V8 with a factory turbo or a factory supercharger. Let the aftermarket go nuts and release parts that increase power and performance as easy as possible. Before you know it, the 2011 Challenger will be the next Supra of Youtube.

2012 Dodge Viper Rumors

September 17th, 2010 No comments

I have heard from numerous sources that there is going to be a 2012 Dodge Viper. This caught me a bit off guard because all I’ve heard so far is that the Dodge Viper is being discontinued and there will be no more. However, I don’t see how Dodge can can a good project like the Dodge Viper. So apparently in a secret dealer meeting, Dodge execs were discussing that the 2012 Dodge Viper is going to be a completely new design. Not simply a tough up, but all new. At this time no one was able to supply a picture of the 2012 Dodge Viper, so we have to leave it up to the imagination.

Rumor is that the 2012 Viper will have a Dodge 8.4 liter V10, based on the current engine, yet feature all of the latest technology, and apparently emit less emissions and get better gas mileage. Why someone put 2012 Dodge Viper and gas mileage in the same sentence is beyond me. Expect the new cleaner burning, tree hugging Dodge Viper to have around 700 horsepower (it needs as much as possible to push away the Corvette ZR1 boys).

How about handling you ask? Well, even though the previous generations Dodge Viper handled pretty good, they were still not as good as could be, so rumor has it that Dodge is working with Ferrari for chassis and suspension tweaks. Their goal is to not only have a horsepower monster, but also super car braking, steering and stability.

So what kind of modifications, parts or accessories do you get for a 2012 Dodge Viper? I would suspect that the typical cold air intake, exhaust, or coilovers will be pretty much a waste. How about a twin turbo Viper? Maybe a supercharged Viper. We can’t wait to see a 2012 Dodge Viper hitting the dyno and registering the first 1000 rwhp dyno chart, the question is, what mods will it have? To be the next Supra, the Viper needs to have an engine that can do 1000rwhp with a bone stock bottom end… can it be done? We have our hopes. We’ll wait for the reviews to start pouring in.

We are looking forward to it!

2011 Dodge Durango

September 2nd, 2010 8 comments

Buckle in and hold tight. Dodge is jumping back into the sport utility (SUV) segment with the 2011 Dodge Durango, a three-row vehicle spacious enough to carry the entire crew and performance-tuned to thrill anyone who truly loves to drive. Durango will lead the Dodge brand’s new product onslaught for 2011.

From its sleek exterior design to its modern, spacious interior, and intelligent, fuel-efficient and powerful powertrain options, the 2011 Dodge Durango is all-new from the inside out. And the changes are more than skin deep. The Durango’s stiffened unibody structure is engineered with the driving enthusiast in mind. The end result is a vehicle that delivers premium driving performance combined with SUV capability and crossover versatility.

The 2011 Dodge Durango features two engine options: the standard fuel-efficient 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and the available 5.7-liter HEMI engine with fuel-saving, Multi-displacement system (MDS) four-cylinder mode. Both engines feature variable-valve timing (VVT) and are available with all-wheel drive. In addition to great efficiency, the engines provide exceptional V-6 and V-8 towing capability with standard trailer sway control (V-8 – 7,400 lbs. and Best-in-class V-6 – 6,200 lbs.). When equipped with the HEMI® V-8, the 2011 Dodge Durango can tow more weight than a 24-foot boat and trailer.

The Durango’s all-new interior is a surprise owners always deserved but never expected. Created by the same interior design studio that designed the much-lauded interior in the Ram trucks and the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Durango’s luxurious interior materials and thoughtful touches will make owners and their crews want to jump in, hunker down and thoroughly enjoy even the longest drive. Everywhere they touch, Durango passengers will feel materials that are refined and soft to the touch. Not only is it a pleasure to behold, it is extremely functional and gives owners a first-class experience, regardless of the trim level. Durango’s interior is also extremely comfortable for all three rows of passengers, and there’s a surprising amount of interior flexibility. With 22 different seating configurations, there’s plenty of room to store and move plenty of people and their gear.

The all-new 2011 Dodge Durango also offers consumers 45 safety and security features, including standard front seat-mounted side air bags and standard side-curtain air bags that cover passengers in all three rows, as well as all-new standard active head restraints. Electronic Stability Control also is standard. Other available safety and security technologies include Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control and Keyless Enter-n’ Go.

The best part is, consumers will get all of the 2011 Dodge Durango’s capability, functionality and flexibility and still get excellent fuel efficiency. In fact, drivers can go more than 500 miles, that’s the distance from San Diego to San Francisco or from Detroit to New York City, without having to stop for fuel.

Built at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit, Mich., the new 2011 Dodge Durango arrives in showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2010.
