Here's FCA's Favorite 'Outrageous' Car Design Competition Winners

FCA and Ram design bosses Ralph Gilles and Mark Trostle recently hosted a student competition for the “wickedest and most outrageous” Ram truck designs, and the winning results are truly that.

The Facebook sketch battle competition was in part to promote the Drive for Design FCA contest for high school students.

Between the two FCA design judges, the 10 winners were Paul Piliste, Rezo Lomaia,...

There's A Super-Rare Dodge Dakota Convertible For Sale In Michigan Right Now So Seize The Moment

This Hero Takes His Kids To School In A Manual 1994 Dodge Caravan

This Hero Takes His Kids To School In A Manual 1994 Dodge Caravan

I have a fascination with cars that make smart use of space through clever packaging and intelligent overall design. For this reason, I’m a huge fan of minivans, and since I love

rare manual transmission versions of cars that you wouldn’t expect to have manual transmissions , this 1994 Dodge Caravan—owned and still used for its intended function of shuttling kids to school by Michigander Bob...

We're Getting A Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Before A Hellcat Pickup For Some Reason: Report

We're Getting A Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat Before A Hellcat Pickup For Some Reason: Report

The

Dodge Durango , an SUV that’s been around forever at this point, will reportedly become the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat at the upcoming New York Auto Show. While I am not one to complain about having over 700 horsepower, I am befuddled by its application here.

The current Dodge Durango has been in production since 2010, with its latest facelift way back six years ago. But in typical FCA...

Oh Shit These Bitches Are Pink

Oh Shit These Bitches Are Pink

The

yellow splitter guards Dodge Charger and Challenger owners drive around with were never meant to be fashionable, as Dodge intended them as shipping protection to be removed by dealers. But they are, to the point that Dodge’s head designer said in October that a color change was under consideration.

That color change seems to have happened, via a recent story by Car and Driver. And oh...

These Are The Greatest Engines Of The Last Decade

These Are The Greatest Engines Of The Last Decade

Time is but a social construct, but as we’ve all decided the 2010s are over, I guess a roundup of the best engines of the decade is in order. We’ve got V10s (duh, because it’s me writing this list), V12s, V8s and four-bangers galore.

The 2010s were an interesting bunch of years. They saw the split between old-school methods of producing big power (fat displacement, superchargers) and modern...

The Ancient Dodge Challenger Now Sells More Than Twice What It Did When It Was New

The Ancient Dodge Challenger Now Sells More Than Twice What It Did When It Was New

The Dodge Challenger is a muscle car that’s been around in its current form since 2008, and has roots in 1990s Mercedes-Benz architecture. But Dodge sold more than twice the number of Challengers in the U.S. market in 2019 as it did in 2009, when the car still qualified as “new.” That makes the Dodge Challenger a modern marketing marvel, both for its sheer sales numbers and for making us all...

Dodge Rumored To Make Another Baby Step Toward Electrification With Mild Hybrid Durango: Report

Dodge Rumored To Make Another Baby Step Toward Electrification With Mild Hybrid Durango: Report

FCA hasn’t been terribly enthusiastic about electric vehicles in the past, but according to a report obtained by Mopar Insiders, the company may be planning a mild hybrid Durango to be introduced in 2020.

The hybrid power system is expected to be the same 48-volt Motor Generator Unit (MGU) used on the

Ram hybrid . The MGU is a small motor (and generator) that replaces the alternator. A...

The Dodge Viper Is Being Recalled For The Potential To Smack You With Its Airbags

The Dodge Viper Is Being Recalled For The Potential To Smack You With Its Airbags

We get it. For you, the Dodge Viper owner, every day follows a set schedule. You wake up, you remember you own the most absurd car from 2005, and then you prance around in it, getting single-digit fuel mileage and laughing because you can, in fact, afford the impracticality of such a car.

But perhaps your laughter should hold off until you visit a dealership, because your Viper has been...

It's Almost 2020 And You Can Still Buy A New Dodge Dart

It's Almost 2020 And You Can Still Buy A New Dodge Dart

We’re two weeks from 2020, which probably makes you, like the rest of us, feel a mix of both despair and the creeping of old age from your joints through every other part of your body. But there is some good news, even if it comes in a small dose: You can still buy a brand-new Dodge Dart.

You can, according to Autotrader, buy six of them if you want—all from the 2016 model year. The range of...

Thank Goodness Mopar Provided Me This Holiday Gift Guide

Thank Goodness Mopar Provided Me This Holiday Gift Guide

Buying gifts is hard, especially when it’s socially mandated that you do so, like during the holidays. What do my family members want for the holidays? I don’t know. I could probably find out if I asked them, but I’m not going to ask them, because that may ruin the surprise despite it being no surprise that the holidays are coming up and we’re all getting each other gifts. Ugh!

That’s why I’m...

The Dodgers Left Brooklyn But The Dodges Are Still Here

The Dodgers Left Brooklyn But The Dodges Are Still Here

My neighborhood is filled with great cars. Some of them, like

the Datsun from a few weeks back, lead solitary lives. They park alone on a block with hardly another interesting car around. Others? Others are more social. Like these Dodges. The Brooklyn Dodges.

Welcome to Little Car in the Big City, where we highlight fascinating cars we found walking around a town that is known for being...

This Dodge Charger Wagon Spotted On The Street Looks So Much Better Than It Has Any Right To

This Dodge Charger Wagon Spotted On The Street Looks So Much Better Than It Has Any Right To

One of my favorite Dodges is the V8-powered, rear-wheel drive Dodge Magnum, and it came out of one of the darkest eras in Chrysler’s history. It arose from the

failed DaimlerChrysler merger , and its essential bones are still shared with the modern Charger. Does that mean you can swap the new Charger’s front onto the wagon? Hell yes, it apparently does.

Let’s start from the beginning. The...

This $31,900 Shelby-Dodge-Simca Mashup Goes Like Hell

This $31,900 Shelby-Dodge-Simca Mashup Goes Like Hell

The Dodge Omni was not an exciting car. Interesting, maybe, with its FWD arrangement imported from Chrysler’s Simca over in Europe, but certainly not exciting. That all changed when Shelby got their hands on the car and turned it into the GLH-S, and if you’re looking for a way to feel what fast was like at Chrysler back in 1986, all you need is 32 large.

The Shelby GLH-S was launched in 1985,...

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.

Watch This Dodge Challenger Hellcat Light Itself On Fire On A Dyno Run

Watch This Dodge Challenger Hellcat Light Itself On Fire On A Dyno Run

In a move surely intended to channel its namesake, a Hellcat on a dyno lit itself on fire. Luckily, the whole situation was resolved without injury and uploaded to YouTube for your viewing pleasure.

To be clear, it doesn’t seem to be the car’s fault. As you can see in the video, a strap holding the car down broke on the run. As the uploader notes in his Reddit thread, once the strap wasn’t...

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...
