2015 Dodge Challenger R/T

Jan 17th
Now that the wicked 707-hp Challenger SRT Hellcat is out of the bag, it’s pretty hard to imagine ordering the Challenger any other way. Yet there are several other paths to Mopar bad-assery in the 2015 Challenger lineup. There’s the 305-hp SXT V-6, the 372- or 375-hp R/T model powered by a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, and the Challenger R/T Scat…
2014 Dodge Durango

Jan 15th
What to do when you want to look bad as hell but need to haul around as many as six other people? You could buy this Dodge Durango R/T. Or strap together four Harley-Davidsons and court litigation. Or buy the Durango and tow the Harleys. Your call.Yet there are other reasons for recommending this Durango beyond its belligerent, updated-for-2014 styling…
2015 Dodge Charger

Jan 14th
Driving a Dodge Charger Pursuit demonstrator painted to resemble a real police car, complete with operating lights and sirens, can be a strange experience, as we noted the last time we did this with a 2012 model. People—other drivers—assume things when they see it simply going down the road or when you stop for coffee or get gas.One editor told…
2015 Dodge Challenger SRT / SRT Hellcat

Jan 7th
Make room, Beelzebub, there’s a new demon-prince pony car in town, and it’s from the people who once brought you a real Demon. This Challenger brandishes numbers to shame the mightiest Mustangs and ­Camaros. Known in this mortal realm as the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, its 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V-8 conjures up a tire- and soul-melting 707 horsepower and 650…
2015 Dodge Challenger R/T

Dec 6th
A lot has changed since 2008, but the Dodge Challenger R/T hasn’t. When Dodge rolled out the retro-styled beast to battle the Ford Mustang—the Chevy Camaro was still on hiatus—we actually found the 376-hp 5.7-liter Hemi-powered R/T model (introduced for 2009) preferable to the slightly quicker, 425-hp 6.1-liter SRT8. But in the years since, the larger Hemi has grown to…
2015 Dodge Challenger R/T

Nov 28th
There are two things we need to get straight before we embark on this review of the 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack.1. No, this is not the Hellcat, as half of the people we encountered thought (or hoped) it was. No, it is not the supercharged one. No, it doesn’t have 700 horsepower.2. Mopar fans are not like the…
2015 Dodge Charger SRT

Nov 27th
Unless the Energy Independence and Security Act is repealed, 50-mpg cars will be thick on the street in a decade. If you find this notion depressing, take solace in the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat’s ability to binge-drink premium fuel. Stomp the throttle as if you own a private pipeline and this hellion can burn 1.5 gallons of high test in…
2017 Dodge Challenger

Nov 25th
Among Detroit’s three pony cars, Dodge’s Challenger is an oversize peg that fits in an altogether differently shaped hole than do the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro. The beefy two-door is by far the largest in its class, has the only usable back seat, and is the most powerful in 707-hp SRT Hellcat form. (At least, for now.) Approaching…
2015 Dodge Dart

Nov 24th
We had high hopes for the new Dart when it was rolled out during the 2012 Detroit auto show. Nearly 40 years after the last of the original Dodge Darts aimed for the bull’s-eye, the new Dart emerged with a similar mission to combine basic transportation with all the current amenities in an affordable package.Dull as that may sound, vehicles…
2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee Review

Nov 23rd
For anyone who lived through and reveled in the muscle-car era, the present provokes some serious reflection. Like, what the hell was that all about?Sure, the heyday of big-inch V-8s saw some awesome rides rumbling out of Detroit. Moreover, we revere those cars today beyond all reason. Try bolting yourself into a pristine Hemi ’Cuda convertible for less than a…
2013 Dodge Journey

Nov 21st
We were taken by surprise when we drove the revitalized 2011 Dodge Journey back in December 2010. Little more than a year removed from Chrysler’s bankruptcy, the company’s engineers and designers transformed one of the industry’s most hopeless vehicles into a genuine contender. Even more impressive, they did so not by starting with a clean-sheet design but with an aggressive…
2016 Dodge Challenger SRT / SRT Hellcat

Nov 15th
Attentive readers will know that we have already put not one, but two 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcats through our typical barrage of tests—one equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, the other an eight-speed automatic. For its second model year, Dodge left the powertrains untouched. This Challenger’s blown 6.2-liter V-8 still pushes the same tire-smoking 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft…
