Dodge Demon pricing is out, and the craziest option is just a dollar

Dodge Demon pricing is out, and the craziest option is just a dollar

What would you pay for an 840 horsepower, street-legal (but only just) drag racer with Guinness World Record pedigree? Dodge is counting on speed-hungry shoppers being willing to spend upwards of $84,995 when the frankly ridiculous 2018 Challenger SRT Demon goes on sale later this Summer, the most powerful Challenger to-date. Unveiled amid flames and plenty of tire smoke at the New York International Auto Show earlier this year, it's frankly ridiculous.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is your drag car for the street

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is here, it's every bit as crazy as we were lead to believe by the months-long publicity campaign leading up to the 2017 New York International Auto Show. Chrysler claims that the SRT Demon is the most powerful V8 production car to have ever been sold to the public, and it backs up that assertion with some wild numbers.

Jeep unveils 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk with 707hp Hellcat engine

The most powerful SUV from Jeep has finally been announced in the form of the 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The all-wheel-drive monster is powered by none other than Dodge's SRT Challenger Hellcat engine, meaning it sports the same 707 horsepower as the sedan, along with 645 pound-feet of torque. The Trackhawk will be presented at this week's New York auto show, but details and photos can be found here.

Tech-filled 2018 Dodge Demon is smarter on the drag strip

Tech-filled 2018 Dodge Demon is smarter on the drag strip

Dodge may be busy making its most powerful Challenger to-date, but the 2018 SRT Demon won't merely be some blunt-force instrument. Instead, the automaker has said today in the latest of what seems like an interminable series of teasers, the potent coupe will pack a new driver-focused infotainment system intended to unlock race-related statistics. Dubbed "Performance Pages", the interface will also allow the Challenger SRT Demon's driver to adjust the various drive mode settings.

Dodge’s latest cop car has anti-ambush sensors

Dodge’s latest cop car has anti-ambush sensors

Parking tech may be helping Dodge owners avoid hitting the curb, but repurposing the same gadgetry will give police officers eyes in the back of their head. The 2017 Dodge Charger Pursuit, the automaker's law enforcement car, is getting an upgrade that tweaks the various sensors into a motion alarm. That, Dodge says, will help address the rise of ambush situations, where police officers are surprised by people creeping up behind their vehicles.

2017 Dodge Durango R/T Review: No SRT required for this V8-powered SUV

2017 Dodge Durango R/T Review: No SRT required for this V8-powered SUV

Sometimes, fate has a funny way of toying with the best-laid plans. Mere days after I finished a stint behind the wheel of the 2017 Dodge Durango R/T, currently the quickest three-row SUV in the FCA line-up, the automaker proclaimed that next year it will produce an SRT version of the same hauler - with 115 additional horsepower and a ton of extra torque, too.

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT has 475 HP (because HEMI is where the heart is)

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT has 475 HP (because HEMI is where the heart is)

The ability to do burnouts in your three-row SUV isn't usually high on the priorities list of most buyers, but then the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is no ordinary family car. Packing a 392 cubic inch HEMI V8 under the vent-punctured hood - that's 6.4-liters - the SRT tuned Durango musters 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. of torque. As well as giving the SUV the ability to turn tires into smoke at the slightest provocation, it's also enough for a 4.4 second 0-60 mph time.

2017 Dodge Challenger GT AWD First Drive: Four-season Grand Touring in an affordable retro package

2017 Dodge Challenger GT AWD First Drive: Four-season Grand Touring in an affordable retro package

In the mid 1960's a talented group of engineers in West Bromwich, England, dared to ask the question 'why can't a muscle car spin all four wheels?' The end result was the Jensen FF, the first production vehicle to feature AWD, and a coupe that just happened to be hiding a 383 cubic inch Chrysler V8 under the hood. Flash forward 50 years and the Pentastar has picked up the torch once again in the form of the 2017 Dodge Challenger GT AWD, which throws down nearly the same gauntlet at the rear-wheel drive-only options from Ford (the Mustang) and Chevrolet (the Camaro).

Dodge continues to crank up expectations for the upcoming 2018 Challenger SRT Demon, the new car which will out-crazy even the currently ridiculous SRT Hellcat. The full wraps aren't due to be lifted off the SRT Demon until the New York International Auto Show 2017 come April, but Dodge can't help spilling a few details along the way. Today, it's the ridiculous rubber the Demon will wear.

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will out-punch the Hellcat

Dodge is resurrecting one of its feistiest nameplates for an even more potent car than the Hellcat, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Set to be unveiled next week at the New York International Auto Show, details about the new car are in short supply, but Dodge is promising to drip-tease us tidbits to keep us going. One thing seems almost certain: we're talking about more than 707 horsepower here.

FCA faces huge fines over Jeep and Dodge emissions cheating

FCA faces huge fines over Jeep and Dodge emissions cheating

Fiat Chrysler faces potentially millions in penalties, after being accused by the EPA of installing emissions cheating devices in more than 100,000 Dodge and Jeep vehicles. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) informed FCA today that certain models of its Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs and Dodge Ram 1500 trucks violated the Clean Air Act, by virtue of the automaker having installed - and failing to disclose - engine management software that may have presented unrealistic emissions results under test conditions. Meanwhile, the agency is still investigating whether FCA also used illegal hardware in the vehicles.

The 5 Most Impressive New Cars I Drove In 2016

The 5 Most Impressive New Cars I Drove In 2016

I'm fortunate in that I have the opportunity to drive almost every new car that makes it to the market in any given calendar year. With roughly 100 steering wheels passing through my hands over that period of time, you might be surprised to learn that very few cars, trucks, or SUVs make it onto my 'naughty' list - that is to say, automobiles have become so universally competent that it's fairly difficult to buy one that's objectively 'bad' in any meaningful way.
