Everyone knows about the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon by now. Its fast, powerful (like, 840 horsepower powerful!), and both street and drag strip ready. That thing is bad from the outside in, and the name Demon truly fits the car’s attitude.
In most situations with a Demon, there is an angel. Right?. Any TV show or movie where there is a evil demon on one shoulder telling someone to be bad, there is the angel on the other shoulder. It makes for a nice balance! Good and evil, yin and yang.
Anyways, with that being said, according to the United States Patent and Trademark office, on July 17, FCA filed to trademark the word “Angel” in regards to “motor vehicles, namely, passenger automobiles, structural parts, trim and badges.” So, it is safe to say Dodge has something up their sleeve to balance the Demon out with a Angel in the near future.

Dodge is well-known for their speedy performance cars, but have you ever seen them all together burning rubber? It’s pretty awesome. The video below shows a “burn off” between these vehicles. The video is one of many in a series known as “Tug-of-War” on the popular auto series Roadkill Nights powered by Dodge.
The way you can tell which vehicle is which when they are covered in clouds is the color. By using different color tire compound you can see each vehicle produce different smoke. The Charger is the blue smoke, the Challenger is the red, smoke and the Viper is the purple smoke. According to The Drive it is usually easy to tell which car wins the tug-a-war, but with this one it is too close to tell. No matter which Dodge actually won, they are all pretty epic!

Around since 2015, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is one of the fastest and best performing vehicles on the market. Its supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine puts out 707 horsepower, which makes it a fierce competitor, even among exuberantly priced European sportscars. When it comes to handling on the track, the Challenger SRT Hellcat is a beast, and for the 2018 model year Dodge made a new beastlier version, the Challenger SRT Widebody.
To give the car more grip with the road, Dodge used the same widebody design of the Challenger SRT Demon and added it to the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody. The new model has 3.5-inch wider fender flares that accommodate 20-inch x 11-inch tires. Also borrowed from the Challenger SRT Demon is a bigger front splitter below the front bumper.
Another improvement to the vehicle’s handling is the new electronic power steering (EPS_ system with SRT Drive Modes. The EPS system is the same as the system on the Challenger SRT Demon and it includes different drive modes to help drivers handle their car better in a variety of situations. [click to continue…]

On June 16, FCA submitted an application to the United States Patent and Trademark office for trademark rights to have the “Cuda” name certified for “motor vehicles, namely passenger automobiles, their structural parts, trim and badges.” The recent legal action is a reminder to many people, that back in April 2015, FCA filed for the same trademark rights to the “Baracuda” name. So what could that mean?
Dodge might have plans to revive the Plymouth Barracuda as the Dodge Barracuda or Cuda in the next few years. It’s not a crazy concept. Dodge has been all about the “throwback” models in the last few years. In 2017 they reintroduced the Challenger T/A and Charger Daytona and for the 2018 model year, they reintroduced the Dodge Demon as the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

If you are on the market for a new vehicle and you need cargo and passenger space, chances are your search has been narrowed down to minivans and SUVs. Minivans, like the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Pacifica are spacious, but some people don’t like their “look.” On the other hand, SUVs, like the Dodge Journey and Dodge Durango, have a lot of style, but they may not have enough passenger or cargo space for your needs. So, how do you choose which is for you?
- Minivans typically have more cargo space than SUVs and with the Chrysler Pacifica and Dodge Grand Caravan, interior cargo space can easily be reconfigured with the vehicle’s Stow ‘n Go seating. Both the Grand Caravan and Pacifica have more than 140 cubic feet of cargo space when the vehicle’s seats are folded into the built-in Stow ‘n Go floor storage bins.

If you are on the market for a Dodge Challenger, you might be surprised by all of the specific terms associated with the muscle car. Shaker, R/T, SRT, HIP are all terms specific to the Dodge brand’s family of cars and the Challenger lineup includes all of those terms.
Also referred to as a shaker hood or shaker scoop is a term for a special type of hood that comes standard on three Challenger trims, the R/T Shaker, R/T Plus Shaker, and the 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker.
A shaker hood is a car hood that has a cutout for an air intake that is mounted on the engine’s air cleaner and extends above and through the opening in the hood. The name Shaker is related to the fact that it shakes from the engine’s vibrations and provides an interesting visual since the hood remains stationary as the scoop shakes.
Speaking of hood scoops, the all-new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has the largest hood scoop (45.2 inches) ever used on a factory production car. [click to continue…]
