Dodge Demon Revealed in New Fate of the Furious Video?

Challenger-ADR-Fate-Of-The-Furious-2

Has the Dodge Demon accidentally been revealed?  For the last week, Dodge has been teasing muscle car lovers with the first look at the Dodge Demon which was supposed to be during the New York International Auto Show.  Thanks to some clever sleuthing, however, a first look at the Dodge Demon may have appeared right under everyone’s noses.

Motor Authority took a closer look at the latest trailer for the new movie in “The Fast and the Furious” franchise, “The Fate of the Furious.”  It’s no secret that Dodge and the movie series have a long and loving relationship as the drivers in the films, especially Vin Diesel’s character, have a love for Dodge and other FCA cars.  “The Fast and Furious” has always made Dodge look amazing on screen.  It should be no surprise that the filmmakers would be allowed to work with the latest and greatest from Dodge and that may mean that the Demon will be making an appearance in the film.

Motor Authority believes this to be true and they may have spotted the Demon in a new video that shows Diesel in a video he posted to his Facebook page that may have shown the Dodge Demon in the background.  Combine that with the timelines of the film’s release and the New York auto show both happening on April 12th, and it seems clear that the Demon won’t just be making it’s auto show debut, but also a film debut.

Can’t wait to see what crazy stunts the “Fast and Furious” people put together if the Dodge Demon manages to make it to the big screen.

The 2017 Dodge Charger has earned the Residual Value Award for the third time in three years!

This recognition comes from the ALG, an industry authority on automotive residual value projections in the US.  They analyze nearly 2,500 vehicles every year to provide consumers with the information.  ALG recognizes 26 vehicles with segment awards.  The awards are based on the 2017 model-year vehicles.

“Striking a delicate balance between traditional sedan and muscle car, the Dodge Charger represents the shifting trends in the full-size segment,” said Eric Lyman, VP of industry insights for ALG.  “A wide range of powertrain and comfort features ensure there is a perfect Charger for every personality.  High performance teams up with high value as the Dodge Charger lands back-to-back Residual Value Awards in 2017.”

“ALG recognizes vehicles and brands that stand out from the rest of the market, and that is exactly what the Dodge Charger does,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands at FCA.  “The only-four door muscle car in the market has now won this award from ALG three years in a row, and that is a testament to the fact that there is nothing else like Charger on the road today.”

Dodge Challenger and Charger Get New Go Mango Paint Color

DG016_003MMc9lnvvv2q3e1ddo4aq623ishnk__mid

Dodge has been showing a lot of love lately to muscle car enthusiasts.  In recent months, they’ve released a series of nostalgic colors for the Challenger and Charger that appeal to the sense of nostalgia a muscle car driver typically has.  The “Plum Crazy” purple, “B5 Blue” and “Sublime” green colors are all meant to recall a bygone age of the muscle car.  Dodge is looking to expand that by adding additional colors.

Dodge unveiled at the 11th annual Spring Festival in Irvine, California that they’d be expanding the color palette of the Charger and Challenger SRT models with the Go Mango exterior paint.  This is a call-back to the iconic 1970 Challenger.

The new color combines red and orange tones and has a real high-octane look to it.  If you’re looking for a unique color for a Charger or Challenger, this new Go Mango paint really seems to stand out in a crowded field.

“Powerful performance cars like our Dodge Charger and Challenger demand high-impact colors,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Dodge Brand.  “Dodge muscle cars have a long history of unique paint colors with iconic names, and we’ll continue to reach back into our paint code archive to give our enthusiasts customers what they want.”

Dodge Plans for 2016 Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcats

Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

The popularity of the Dodge Hellcats was something that Dodge didn’t expect.  Due to those issues, the brand had to make some tough choices about the 2015 Hellcats and pull the plug on getting more out to customers, instead giving them a refund and first crack at the newly announced 2016 models.  While this certainly is bad news for customers still trying to get a Hellcat Challenger or Charger, the boost in popularity has really helped the brand.

“It’s an absolute milestone of Dodge history,” said Dodge and SRT President and CEO Tim Kuniskis according to Detroit News.  “It’s the ’71 Hemi all over again.”

The cancellation of orders left hundreds without Hellcats and to rectify this, Dodge is putting an increase in effort into their production of the 2016 line.  They will be producing more than double what was in 2015 in hopes of making sure they avoid this problem in the future.  The two Hellcats, the Charger and Challenger, will also be getting an increase in price.  The main reason is that the standard equipment on the 2016 models has been made nicer, including Laguna leather.

Dodge Challenger Sets Record April Sales!

Dodge Challenger Sets Record Sales - Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge

The Dodge Challenger has been having a high-point of late.  The Hellcat has been doing very well and with the addition of the Scat Pack it seems clear that Dodge is embracing a new era of muscle cars.  The fans have taken notice and thanks to this new commitment to performance, the Challenger had its best April sales ever.

In the whole of the month of April, Dodge sold 6,771 Challengers.  In comparison to a year ago, that is an increase of 32%.  It is a notch better than March which saw 6,110 Challengers sold.  To mark off this momentous occasion for the muscle car, the April sales are the most Challengers sold in a single month since the Challenger was brought back in 2008.

This is great news for muscle car fans.  Dodge has been making strides into reclaiming the old glory of the muscle car while putting a nice and modern face to it.  The sales for the overall year is still just as strong.  With 22,728 Challengers sold thus far, that puts it above the previous years by 41%.  If this continues, it may top the previous record year for the Challenger which happened in 1970.  That year sold 76,935 Challengers.  Fingers crossed and maybe, just maybe, 2015 is the year of the Dodge Challenger.

Fortune Takes the Challenger SRT Hellcat for a Nostalgic Spin

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Fortune Magazine - Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge

Fortune magazine took the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat out for a spin and came away with love and admiration not just for the car itself but for the concept of the American muscle car.

The newest model year of the Challenger is meant to invoke a sense of nostalgia for the golden age of the American muscle car; the 1970’s.  Many of the design choices are direct call backs to the Challengers of that era.  The SRT Hellcat is even more of a dedication to that era with its powerful engine.

As it is impossible to do when talking about the Challenger Hellcat, that engine is the first thing to talk about.  When the marketing is to show off in giant neon letters the 707 horsepower, how could that not be the main talking point?  “The Challenger is, in fat, the most potent American production car on the market…”  They continue to say that it only trails behind the Ferrari F12berlinetta in terms of power.  However, the Challenger costs a quarter-million less than the Ferrari, so there is that.

It is clear the writer is loving the Hellcat Challenger for that sense of nostalgia.  It is a call back to the time when the power of the muscle car was all that mattered.  “…the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is unapologetic and earnest with its comically over-endowed powerplay and old-school silhouette.”  The SRT Hellcat isn’t meant for the driver who needs a daily commuting car or a family ride, it is really for the driver who needs that burst of speed and power and to be reminded of days gone by.
