Dodge in recent years has transformed from a mainstream brand into a performance-oriented one specializing in muscle cars. The transformation really kicked into high gear in 2014 when parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles [NYSE:FCAU] announced that Dodge was to reabsorb the SRT division, along with the Viper supercar.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been much in the way of new product since then. We have, however, been treated to some impressive updates to core models like the Challenger and Charger—and there are more updates to come.
