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 […]

Quick Spin: 2018 Dodge Challenger GT All-Wheel Drive

Last year, when the all-wheel-drive Dodge Challenger was first launched, the good folks at FCA invited me to snow-covered race track to hoon that thing. And the damn thing proved to be shockingly good in snow, even with stock all-season tires on. It went, it stopped, and it turned while wagging its huge butt around […]

Quick Spin: 2017 Dodge Charger SXT AWD

Please give all the credit and respect to Dodge, all of FCA actually, for creating some of the most interesting vehicles on the market today. And then for having the guts to splash them in some equally ridiculous colors. Take this Yellow Jacket Dodge Charger, for instance. What other brand would offer a relatively pedestrian […]

A Final Run: Saying Good Bye to the Dodge Viper ACR

Earlier, you saw Pennzoil provide a sendoff to the Dodge Viper. Well, we’ve been cooking up one of our own and to properly say good bye to the Viper, we wanted time with the most wild version of this race car for the road. The Dodge Viper ACR with its Extreme Aero kit is about […]

First Drive: 2017 Dodge Challenger GT – The AWD Muscle Car

When I first heard the idea of an all-wheel-drive Challenger I paused a little bit. I paused because the Challenger, like its competitors from Ford and Chevy, are the iconic muscle cars – V8, long hoods, long doors, rear wheel drive, burnouts, hell yea, and all that jazz. But the whole world has been fooled […]

Dodge Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker: Long name… lots of fun

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03GO0ebgkQU&lc[/youtube] 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. It’s a long name, but it’s a car with lots of fun to pack up all those letters. There’s 485 horsepower […]

Dodge Challenger Hellcat: Mad Max… the car

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZM0kDyaDb0[/youtube] Yes, I know Mad Max drove an old Ford. It Mr. Mad were around in the modern era, there’d be no question about what he would driving; the 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat. It’s a 707-horsepower, supercharged coupe, and you can have it with either a six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed automatic. We’ve got […]

Dodge Challenger Scat Pack: A Half-Price Hellcat

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VU6MuwOR6o[/youtube] 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. Under the hood is a 485-horspower 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine that enjoys ruining any relationship it may have […]

Video Review: 2013 Dodge DartReady to Rallye? Not quite

I really wanted to like the Dodge Dart. The exterior styling is wonderful, and the interior cabin space is great. I love the very comfortable yet supportive cloth seats, and the center stack is filled out perfectly thanks to the large touchscreen system. When outside and inside work so nicely together, you’d expect a winning […]

2010 RAM 1500

Sometimes it feels good to get off the ground and survey the world around you. I have driven a number of cars for Hooniverse.com and most fall into either the sporty or luxurious categories, with some toeing the line of both worlds. I enjoy the power and the amenities found within those vehicles. The Dodge RAM […]
