  • 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392

    There’s good news from Chrysler for performance car fans: the automaker has announced that the Street and Racing Technology (SRT) group has been spun off to form its own brand. Better news?

Replacing Gilles at Dodge is Reid Bigland, who had been president and CEO of Chrysler Canada. Bigland retains his responsibilities for the Canadian market in addition to gaining leadership...
