Like a lot of modern performance cars, the bonkers 707 horsepower Dodge Challenger Hellcat has a “Valet Mode” that keeps the guy parking your car from turning it into a land missile. The Hellcat even goes a step further with two keys, only one of which can activate its full power. That’s a real bummer for the valets…
I’m not sure why racing on a public road full of other cars and trucks doesn’t seem like a terrible idea to people, but it is. If simple logic doesn’t get the concept across, maybe this wreck, caused by a race between a Challenger and a Charger, will. Three are dead, and the carnage of the multi-car wreck closed…
We know there’s only one reason to buy a Dodge Challenger Hellcat; the inexhaustible shit-talking rights that come with 707 horsepower. But now the cat’s been out of the bag for a while, and that jerk you were trying to one-up in the first place went and got a Hellcat of his own. This means war. You need 1,032…
When you’re a Venezuelan taxi driver who falls in love with the new Challenger R/T at the 1969 Detroit Auto Show, you gotta have one with the biggest engine available, linked to a four-speed manual. There’s just no other way.
Could Dodge be on the heels of an amazingly hoontastic winter car or are they just wasting our time? I can’t tell. But they made a Dodge Challenger with all-wheel drive, and I’m still trying to figure it out.
You can’t afford the Hellcat. You want more than the 5.7-liter R/T has to offer. Say hello to the Dodge Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker... if you can remember all of that.
And we mean “insanity” in a good way. How can you not, with looks like that and your choice of a big naturally aspirated V8 or Mopar’s first-ever supercharged V8? Too bad there’s only going to be 60 of them.
It’s not at all surprising to see the Ford Mustang achieving impressive sales figures in its American home market. Through the first five months of 2015, Ford has sold 56,571 Mustangs in the U.S., a 55% year-over-year increase. That 20,000-unit improvement compared with the first five months of 2014 has stopped…
Today we bring you an update to yesterday’s story about a Good Samaritan motorist who caught a speeding Dodge Challenger on his dash cam, only to watch police arrest and charge the driver of a different Challenger: the wrongfully-arrested driver has been released and the charges have been dropped.
A driver in the Detroit area had an extremely close call on Friday as a black Dodge Challenger raced past him on the right side in excess of 100 mph. He caught the incident on his dash cam video. The police made an arrest, but the car they nabbed wasn’t the car that passed him. Do police in Allen Park, Michigan have…
The name isn't great, even if it's rooted in history. All is forgotten upon a press of the start button, however, because the Dodge Challenger Scat Pack is a ridiculously fun machine set at half-Hellcat pricing.
SRT isn't completely gone from motorsports. They're still alive and kicking with partner Miller Racing, who runs a sweet lime green Challenger in the Trans-Am series. This short clip of Tommy Kendall's Challenger and another competitor's Camaro proves that Trans Am is now the best sounding race series in existence.
Of course video of the first Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat rolling off the assembly line is set to Mötley Crüe. Because of course it is.
It just so happens that the house I moved to in Austin is near this elementary school. And it just so happens that I would drive past this elementary school in a 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, and on more than one occasion it caused the kids at recess to turn and point at the muscle car, their jaws dropped in…
Mopar enthusiasts/tire destroyers got their first look at the 2015 Mopar Challenger Drag Pak "test vehicle" at the NHRA U.S. Nationals Event in Indianapolis. They did burnouts, so you know it's pretty much exactly what you want if you're a Sportsman racer.
The early 1970s were a glorious time for muscle cars. Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Plymouth, even the forgotten AMC all jumped into the game. But few muscle cars were as sinister as the Challenger, as even cops with speech impediments knew.
No, it's not the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Not everything can be the Hellcat. (Sadly.) But this bold green coupe represents SRT's debut in Trans Am racing, starting at Mid-Ohio this weekend.
Through an odd confluence of events, I'm having breakfast with Bill Goldberg. Yes, that Bill Goldberg. We're both here with a dozen others to get our hands on the 2015 line-up of Dodge Challengers, and we're going to be driving partners. Because a 707-hp muscle car isn't absurd enough.
I was on the first wave of the media drive for the 2015 Dodge Challenger, which included some seat time in the 707-horsepower Hellcat. I can't talk about driving impressions until Tuesday, but I can share some video that I shot for my job at Web2Carz.com.
