2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Review

Even before the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat had pulled up into my driveway, a Dodge product communications representative had sent me an email with a cheerful reminder that “with great power comes great responsibility.” That power, of course, is the Hellcat’s 710 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque, and the responsibility, I assumed, was […]

Dodge Durango Hellcat: The best all-around Hellcat of the bunch!

Dodge Durango Hellcat parked

The Dodge Durango Hellcat is the best of the Hellcat bunch. It’s actually the one that makes the most sense. Albeit, in a group of vehicles that make little sense. That’s because it’s a seven-passenger SUV, which is comfortable, can tow 8,700 lbs, and also happens to have a 710-horsepower engine under the hood. Yes, […]

Dodge Durango SRT does it all with a great thirst and loud noises

dodge durango srt front side blue

Dodge’s three-row SUV is in the autumn of its days now but is still kicking ass. In its segment it’s a unique vehicle due to its longitudinally orientated engine, giving it a rear-wheel-drive feel, and a unibody-ish chassis. That chassis architecture, dating to Chrysler’s partnership with Daimler, and nearly identical to the Jeep Grand Cherokee, […]

Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody: More Thicc is More Better

The Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody is automotive “more”. You want more power? It’s got that. You want more room than the Challenger? It’s got that. And now, do you want a wider body and stance? It’s got that too. [Disclaimer: Dodge tossed us the keys to the Hellcat Widebody and included a tank of fuel. […]

2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody Preview

You can watch the video below for all the details, but the highlights included: New grill and […]

Road trip: Boston to NYC in a 2019 Dodge Durango GT

The Dodge Durango needs no introduction. The current, third generation of the three-row Dodge Durango has been around since 2011. It received a mild visual update in 2016 but features, trims, special editions, and other subtle changes have been ongoing, as they are with most FCA vehicles. Some of its architecture can date back to […]

The Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye… is ridiculous

Dodge-Challenger-Hellcat-Redeye

This is a ridiculous machine. It’s crazy that Dodge makes this. It’s wild that you can walk into a dealership, give them your many dollars, and leave with the keys to one of these. This is the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye, and I love it. You can think of it as a sort of sub-Demon. […]

On the Track with Dodge's new Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody

Out of Detroit’s three, the Challenger has always been the king at the drag strip, a king that rules with such a big crown the NHRA ended up casting down a ban on the late Demon variant. But can the big Dodge control itself at speed when the wheel isn’t pointed straight? Yes, oh gosh […]

The Dodge Charger Daytona 392: A perfectly simple, silly machine

How can you not love this simple, silly machine? It’s a pretty basic recipe, but one that I truly enjoy. Take a large V8 engine and have it send power to the rear. Add in room for friends, tremendous noise, comfortable seats, and you have a modern muscle car. That is the Dodge Charger Daytona […]

Observations from driving a yellow widebody Dodge Challenger Hellcat

Gas mileage is awful. Around the city it’s in the single digits. On the highway you’ll crack double digits if you restrain yourself. You’ll actually laugh about that. Don’t expect more than 200 miles out of a tank. You’ll get asked about gas mileage.   You’ll get all kinds of comments. Some women will question […]
