The 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Is A 707 HP Four-Door Land Missile For The Fans

The 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Is A 707 HP Four-Door Land Missile For The Fans
Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  

Most know that when we talk about car companies hopping on trends like autonomy, electrification, and efficiency, we’re not really talking about Dodge. Dodge, instead, has a lineup full of dinosaurs that get a thorough polishing, more power and maybe a new bow every year, and we eat it up . Every year. Somehow, it works.

Dodge Chargers Will Get Purple 'Air Dam Shipping Covers' Instead Of Yellow (But The Designer Hopes You Take Them Off) [Updated]

Dodge Chargers Will Get Purple 'Air Dam Shipping Covers' Instead Of Yellow (But The Designer Hopes You Take Them Off) [Updated]

Car Internet is deeply divided over whether it’s cool to keep the yellow “air dam shipping covers”—which Dodge installs on its Challengers and Chargers to protect lower fascias during shipping—attached, or if it’s best to throw them out. Thanks to a new video apparently taken at the Dodge Charger Widebody ’s press launch, we now know what the car’s head designer thinks, and we’ve learned...

The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody Will Start At $69,645

The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody Will Start At $69,645

The Dodge Charger is one of the survivors of the sedanpocalypse, and in terms of features, it is thriving. The newest iteration of the model, the Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody—the wide body being the new part—now has a price tag, and it’ll run you a casual $69,645 on the low end.

That’s plus $1,495 in destination charges, of course, because it has to look like it’s cheaper than $70,000 on the...

The 475-HP Dodge Durango SRT Is A Muscle Truck That's Ready To Haul

The 475-HP Dodge Durango SRT Is A Muscle Truck That's Ready To Haul
Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  

“Does it shit and git?” a rally crew member from another team asked me after I rolled up to my hotel in a burbling and strikingly green 2019 Dodge Durango SRT . “What...yes? I think so,” I replied.

(Full disclosure: Fiat Chrysler was kind enough to let me borrow a Durango SRT when I needed a rally support vehicle that could both...

This 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 First Edition For Sale Sure Is Something

This 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 First Edition For Sale Sure Is Something

The year 2008 might seem like a long time ago, but it wasn’t. Just look at the Dodge Challenger, which, unlike yourself, hasn’t aged a day . But how can the used Dodge Challengers compete with the newer ones, given that they’ve kept the same cosmetics but come with more power, more features and a warranty?

Novelty. That’s how.

Novelty, in this Autotrader-listed 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8...

In 1978, Dodge Wanted To Sell Us 'Adult Toys'

In 1978, Dodge Wanted To Sell Us 'Adult Toys'

Dodge has never been afraid to explore new market segments, especially when they build excitement. In 1978, the brand made its biggest step in that direction with a line of “adult toys.” No. NO. Not like that. Accessorized pickups, vans and stuff.

In 1978, Dodge needed some energy. Its muscle cars were not in good shape after the Gas Crisis. Bloated and wheezy, they weren’t going...

This Man Drives His 1997 Dodge Viper GTS, As Everyone Should

This Man Drives His 1997 Dodge Viper GTS, As Everyone Should

Oh, hello. It’s me again, the Dodge Viper Girl. As you know, nothing pains me more than seeing a car that doesn’t get driven, especially if it’s a Viper. That gross, grimy Viper living in Venice, California, was my hero because it had 190,000 miles on the clock. This (decidedly nicer) blue Viper also gets driven. Everyone, take note.

Instead of some petite, obscure European car, Petrolicious...

How Have I Never Realized That There’s No Dodge Challenger Convertible?

How Have I Never Realized That There’s No Dodge Challenger Convertible?

I like to think of myself as someone who enjoys cars. A car “enthusiast,” you might say, who pays attention to trends for more than just the ability to claim a “hobby” and form some kind of occasional human connection in this cold, dead world. That being the case, how, in all of my years, have I never noticed that the modern Dodge Challenger doesn’t come with a convertible option?

It’s less...

There Are Somehow Still New 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demons For Sale

There Are Somehow Still New 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demons For Sale

It’s dealer-markup season again , with the fancy “Launch Edition ” of the new “Toyota Supra, ” which I hear is less Toyota and more some other manufacturer I cannot recall the name of right now, coming onto the market. But markups are nothing new, and they happen on most vehicles that mean anything to the car community—like the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, whose firestorm of markups ...

I Cannot Figure Out Whether I Love Or Hate The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye

I Cannot Figure Out Whether I Love Or Hate The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye

The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is the vilest car I have ever driven. The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is the best vehicle I have ever driven. I believe both of these statements completely, but neither of them are true.

Or maybe they both are. The cognitive dissonance inspired by the $90,040 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye I’m driving this week is real and significant....

Here Are The Most And Least Stolen Cars In America

Here Are The Most And Least Stolen Cars In America

You may want to find an extra-secure place to park your Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat.

The list is put together by the Highway Loss Data Institute, an arm of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The HLDI derived its data from the insurance claims people filed for stolen vehicles.

Here are the lists:

Somewhat interestingly, the HLDI said that the Cadillac Escalade, which...

What Do You Want to Know About the 475-HP Dodge Durango SRT?

This has been one hell of a week as my BMW E36 M3 and I are on the road, heading to the New England Forest Rally. My constant companion on this journey—besides my co-driver—is a fully loaded Dodge Durango SRT.

Building My BMW E36 M3 Rally Car Is a Race Itself

My first rally race with my newish-to-me 1995 BMW M3 is coming up on me faster than the trees I…

Hello, My Sweet Prince

Hello, My Sweet Prince

The languid and hazy days of summer are upon us, dulling the senses and enveloping the mind in a sense of laziness. The desire for open top driving is strong and my prince, a 1993 Dodge Viper, is here.

Long ago I decided no car would even be to me what my prince is, a brash and uncouth V10 with some wheels and a steering wheel attached to it. I yearn not for the so-called refinement of the...

Just in case you’ve been doubting the powerful and prodigious hunger of Mother Earth, our planet, devourer of cars, please take a moment to inspect this video, shot on an ordinary street in Dale City, Virginia. That was a 2009 or so Dodge Grand Caravan minivan. Now it’s just a snack for hungry Mother Gaia.

The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Is Totally Coming

The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Is Totally Coming

Dodge regularly gives its muscle cars both cosmetic and mechanical makeovers on top of their same, ancient roots, and we eat it up. We really do. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Thus, Dodge keeps pumping new ideas out, like a potential wide-body version of its 707-horsepower Charger SRT Hellcat.

Stop trying to hide it. You know you haven’t been this excited for fender flares since, well,...

In the battle of 1980s 4x4 SUVs, there can be only one winner. And it’ll be up to you, Jalopnik, to decide. No pressure!

Here we find a slightly niche rivalry for the people out there looking for a family-friendly SUV that can still get a little wild offroad. Vintage 4x4s are pretty hot...

There's Nothing Wrong With a Cute Pickup Truck

There's Nothing Wrong With a Cute Pickup Truck

I once heard whisperings around the halls of Chrysler’s technical center that then-CEO Sergio Marchionne had shut down an early “DT” Ram design (that’s the current generation truck) because it was too “dainty.” I’m not sure how true this is, but it does lead me to the question: What’s wrong with dainty? Just look at this cute little Dodge A100 for sale on Craigslist—it’s pickup truck...

It's Amazing How Much People Hate the Dodge Charger and Challenger Temporary 'Air Dam Shipping Cover' Mod

Dodge installs temporary yellow air dam shipping covers onto Challengers and Chargers to protect lower fascias from damage during delivery. Instead of removing these, some owners have been keeping the covers on for aesthetic purposes, and it’s driving some people so nuts that there’s now a Facebook group for folks who just need to vocalize their disdain for the splitter guards. It’s...

There Is Yet Another Dodge Charger Special Edition and This One Is Black or White

There Is Yet Another Dodge Charger Special Edition and This One Is Black or White

One of the things that makes Dodge so wholesomely Dodge is that it regularly and eloquently debuts new editions of its rapidly aging muscle cars , keeping the masses happy and spending money in spite of the fact that their flashy new car and its flashy new style has sometimes decades-old roots .

It’s a true, black-magic kind of success, except via constant tweaks and optional upgrades instead...

Help Me Understand the Mystery of the Sign of the Two Dodge Omnis, Good and Bad

Help Me Understand the Mystery of the Sign of the Two Dodge Omnis, Good and Bad

Everyone, everyone, settle down! I need your attention! Over the course of a week I have somehow encountered two Dodge Omnis, each one representing an extreme of condition of Dodge Omnis still in active use.

While I am certain this is a meaningful omen, I am not yet certain exactly what it means. It’s like a double rainbow, but instead of two rainbows, it’s two Dodge Omnis, one immaculate and...
