We slid behind the wheel of the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT for a week and found it to be a modern hot-rod station wagon with a lift kit. The Durango's 475-horsepower Hemi V-8 belts out a thunderous roar, and the tires are so wide that they stick out from the rockers. All this, and three rows of seats to haul the kids to soccer practice.

Bugatti set a world record with Chiron running from 0-248-0 mph in just 42 seconds, but Koenigsegg said, "Hold your horses" and subsequently destroyed that record. Its Agera RS went from 0-400 km/h-0 in juts 36.44 seconds. Technically it went 403 km/h in 37.28 seconds, but that's just being petty.

Fans of the "Fast and Furious" franchise will have to wait a year longer than anticipated before getting to watch the ninth installment of the saga. Originally slated to debut on April 19, 2019, the film will now release nearly a year later: April 10, 2020.

 You'll find these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
