Chevrolet eyes cheaper V8 Camaro to compete with Mustang and Challenger

Chevrolet eyes cheaper V8 Camaro to compete with Mustang and Challenger

Automakers often fall into the same trap when it comes to their cars and trucks. They introduce something at a good price, consumers respond well, and sales grow. Eventually the manufacturer thinks a premium will be supported by the market, prices increase, and as time goes by shoppers gravitate towards the competition in part because of lower prices. GM is seeing the writing on the wall and according to GM product chief Mark Reuss Chevy is ready to reassess its pricing on the Camaro.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon first drive review: hell on wheels

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon first drive review: hell on wheels

I’m sorry, you’re called what? The Demon? The demon of what, you might also ask? It’s the torpedo of drag racers, born out an addiction to speed in a straight line, and its singular mission is to obliterate the competition on any drag strip. The specs say that the 840 HP V8 can propel this particular 4,275-pound missile from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds, and hammer out the quarter mile in 9.65 seconds at 140 mph. This is the world’s fastest production car, and it’s wearing an American badge.

The latest iteration of Dodge's two-door muscle car, the Widebody looks to its horsepower-blessed sibling, the SRT Demon, for inspiration. No, it might not have the same potency under the hood, but it certainly looks the part.

Dodge Demon declares war on dealer price-gouging

Dodge Demon declares war on dealer price-gouging

We knew two things about Dodge's 2018 Challenger SRT Demon: first, that with 840HP it would be crazy-powerful, and second, it would be in hot demand. Now, Dodge is spilling some details on how it plans to manage that demand, and there's surprisingly good news. Unlike most enthusiast-focused cars, which suffer sometimes shocking dealer price-gouging, the Demon may well be actually sold at its MSRP.

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.

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).
