The Hellcat Pack Introduces The Charger Hellcat

Much like the Challenger model of the Hellcat, many of the guts and glory that are in the Challenger, are also found in the new Charger model. What does the introduction of this powerful sedan mean for the Dodge subsidiary brand?

The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) released statistics regarding the most stolen “sporty” cars and topping the list were the Chevy Camaro, the Ford Mustang and the Dodge Challenger in that order. Given the number of these cars of the street these numbers shouldn’t be surprising. If you have one of these muscle cars you need to make sure your car insurance is in order and covers theft along with general liability as you’d be foolish to risk losing everything.

The retro designs for these three vehicles have been huge hits over the past decade. The Mustang was the sales leader but then the retro Camaro took the top spot. Now Ford is redesigning the Mustang for the 50th anniversary in one of the most anticipated redesigns in recent memory. Let’s see if the new one generates as much passion.

  

Love the Ron Burgundy – Dodge Durango commercials

This new Dodge Durango commercial starring Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy is hilarious. You can see more of them at the Dodge YouTube page.

The inspiration for this particular “MPG” commercial has to have come from this old promo video where Ron Burgundy couldn’t pronounce ESPN, which has to be one of the funniest Burgundy clips ever.

Ferrell will be back soon as Ron Burgundy again in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.”

  

Dodge Dart GT will hit dealerships soon

2013 Dodge Dart GT

Dodge Dart sales have been rather disappointing for the brand, so the arrival of the GT version has to be a relief to the dealers. Production started up recently and the vehicle is now available for ordering.

The vehicle debuted at the 2013 North American International Auto Show and looks pretty sharp as you can see in the photo above. Here are some additional details:

– the GT is powered by the 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir2 four-cylinder engine, which produces 184 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque

– premium Nappa leather

– sport suspension with frequency-sensing damping shocks, including standard 18-inch aluminum wheels

– standard class-exclusive features include racetrack LED taillamps, integrated dual exhaust, 8.4-inch touchscreen, 7-inch TFT display, and in-seat storage

– MSRP of $20,995

Let’s see if this helps raise the profile of the vehicle.
