Burnouts For All: Dodge Adds 1,000 More Hellcats To Production Schedule

It's safe to say that the 707 horsepower 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat have been massive, runaway successes for Dodge. That's why it's such a shame some dealers took more orders than they could deliver. So due to the car's popularity, Dodge will add 1,000 more Hellcats to the car's… » 3/27/15 6:15pm Friday 6:15pm

Why Are Dodge Ads Like A Weird, Overly Controlling Stage Parent?

When you buy a car, what's really happening is that you're entering a relationship with your car. And that's how it should be — you and the car, growing with and learning about one another. But what do you do if that car's parents prove to be abusive and controlling? I'm asking for my friend, a nice kid named… » 3/16/15 8:20pm 3/16/15 8:20pm

Oh, God. I bought a Dodge with 281,000 miles on it.

This is it. This is how I know I've lost my goddamned mind. I willingly handed over American currency for this: a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 with 281,000 miles on the odometer. Why? Because a new truck costs more than my mortgage. Because I've seen more half-tons with their transmissions puked out over a garage floor than I… » 3/13/15 1:38pm 3/13/15 1:38pm

Dodge Will Make You A Viper However The Hell You Want It 

Dodge hasn't had it easy selling Vipers. First they had to discount them by fifteen grand, then the Hellcats stole all the thunder, and now the Z06 is at the top of the American sports car food chain. But if you want a customizable, hand-built, 645hp sports car for under $100k, you can have it with the Viper GTC. » 1/13/15 3:04pm 1/13/15 3:04pm

A Very Common Word Was Invented By Dodge 

Dodge is known for producing many things, most notably cars, minivans, and sometimes large, lingering clouds of tire smoke. Oh, and the K-Car. But one thing I didn't realize was that they're also in the word business, coining an extremely common word way back in the 1910s. That word? Come on, you know I'm gonna make… » 12/16/14 9:35pm 12/16/14 9:35pm

You Can Buy An Awesome Dodge Viper GTS For The Price Of A Honda Accord

Prestige and exclusivity don't always need to be imported. Case in point: this brutish, home-grown 10-cylinder slice of 'merican pie known as the Dodge Viper GTS. Not only has this amazing car aged remarkably well, but it's depreciated to the point that it's cheaper than a modestly-optioned Honda Accord EX-L. » 12/07/14 2:32pm 12/07/14 2:32pm

VIdeo: The Dodge Viper T/A is Analog Speed, Perfected.

The Dodge Viper T/A is an absolute animal: 640 HP, 600 lb/ft, 3,300 lbs, and 355-section rear tires with an old-fashioned 6-speed manual gearbox. And now that it has a new, lower base price, it's analog speed worth revisiting. Let's do a quick first-light Snake Run to find out. » 11/25/14 12:12pm 11/25/14 12:12pm

This CGI Dodge Hellcat Robot Cat Is A Sad Reflection On Our Society

The 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat and its four-door littermate the Charger Hellcat sound amazing on paper, (707 horsepower!) are apparently even nuttier in real life (825 horsepower?!), and can even carve corners. So why does Dodge need this dorky cartoon to sell them? » 11/17/14 4:45pm 11/17/14 4:45pm

The 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is ridiculous...

My Dinner With Some Dodge And SRT Engineers

This past week I managed to spend some time with the new lineup of Chargers and the engineers that helped make them. Though they rejected my offers to provide dinner, I did manage to sit down with them for a meal and a series of inane questions, delivered with intensity and a light mist of masticated food. » 10/24/14 10:45am 10/24/14 10:45am

Dodge Viper - More charm needed for this snake?

The Dodge Viper returned to the world in 2013 and everyone... kind of went, huh. That's a bit of a surprise considering the styling is excellent, the V10 makes amazing noise, and the performance capability of the car is higher than that of most drivers that will climb behind the wheel. » 10/21/14 2:15pm 10/21/14 2:15pm

'Scat Pack' Name Leads To Crappy Legal Battle For Dodge

I really fell in love with the Dodge Challenger Scat Pack I tested recently, and that was in spite of its unintentionally gross and hilarious name. But the revival of that historic Mopar name has also resurrected a decades-old trademark battle. » 10/20/14 11:11am 10/20/14 11:11am
