  • Dodge Charger widebody spotted in Detroit - Image via ZL1_dre_2c/Instagram

    A mystery Dodge Charger sporting the same pumped fenders found on various Challenger Widebody models has been spotted prowling the streets of Detroit. Southfield, Michigan, to be specific. The car is featured in a video posted to Instagram on Tuesday by user ZL1_dre_2c (via Mopar Insiders) and appears to be based on a Charger SRT Hellcat. It also sports a custom wrap with Dodge SRT branding. Naturally, there must also be subtle changes to the front and rear fascias to accommodate the widened fenders. In the case of the Challenger, the wide-body option adds 3.5 inches to the width of the...

    1992 Dodge Viper in time-capsule condition for sale

    The Dodge Viper left this world in 2017 and we have a feeling that fact has done good things for the cars' values. Case in point, this 1992 Dodge Viper for sale on eBay. However, what's really bound to drive up the price of this car is the fact it was purchased new and has since sat stored in a...

  • 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat
    2020 Dodge Charger to get Challenger's wide-body option?

    Dodge's updates for the Charger for 2019 were relatively light, especially considering the car's Challenger stablemate received the 797-horsepower SRT Hellcat Redeye option for the same year. It could be, perhaps, that the muscle car brand is saving more serious updates for the Charger's future...

  • 2019 Dodge Charger and Challenger finished in Sublime paint

    The 2019 Dodge Challenger and Charger are going green in a literal sense. The brand announced Wednesday that both cars now offer the Sublime paint color, which last appeared in 2015. The Challenger could be had in Sublime four years ago, but the color was last seen on a Charger in 2007. Specifically, Dodge built a limited run of Charger R/T Daytona models finished in the color at the time. The retro exterior color joins Dodge's growing palette of nostalgic "high impact" colors, which also includes B5 Blue, Go Mango, F8 Green, Plum Crazy, and TorRed. Sublime's return to the color palette also...

    1992 Dodge Viper: 100 Cars That Matter

    In the late 1980s, post-K-car Chrysler was desperate for attention. The good fortune of the decade had begun to dwindle and the automaker knew it needed something big to turn the limelight back on its aging products. Enter the Dodge Viper. Chrysler made more than a splash in 1989 when the Viper...

  • 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody
    FCA boss: Next Challenger to use electric boost, skip 700-hp supercharged V-8

    You better get them while they last, folks, as the next Dodge Challenger looks like it's going to be a very different beast to the car on sale today. That's the word of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Mike Manley, who took over following the sudden death of his predecessor, Sergio Marchionne, last...

    Dodge Challenger outsells Camaro in 2018, but Mustang still king

    Executives at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Ford have reason to celebrate over their muscle cars, while Chevrolet is likely taking a hard look at its Camaro. The 2018 sales figures are in from all three American automakers, and the results put Ford on top in the muscle car wars. Despite a decrease...

    Hennessey's 1,035-HP Dodge Challenger SRT Demon sounds like it came from hell

    The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is already one hell of a car, but Hennessey Performance Engineering has (of course) gotten a hold of it and made it something more. With the company's HPE1000 package, the Demon makes a whopping 880 horsepower at the rear wheels. That equates to around 1,035 hp at the...

  • 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

    The Dodge Charger soldiers on for the 2019 model year with yet a new round of updates, though the car isn't quite as old as its Challenger sibling, having been introduced for 2011. For the latest updates, Dodge has very much focused on the SRT Hellcat flagship. The super muscle sedan sticks with an 8-speed automatic and that 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 spitting out 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, but there's revised styling to be had in addition to some new performance features. The revised styling consists of a new grille with dual inlets that help feed cool air to the engine...

    2019 Dodge Challenger preview

    The Dodge Challenger has been with us since 2008, but like a fine wine it just gets better with age. The vehicle has entered the 2019 model year, and while the 840-horsepower SRT Demon is no longer at the party, the drag strip hero's influence can be felt in several models in the lineup, none more...

    Dodge almost turned the Viper into a mid-engined car

    The automotive industry is full of incredibly fascinating tales of "what could have been." We can think of numerous examples, but one we're sure few have heard of has just surfaced: Dodge built a business case for a mid-engined Viper in the 1990s. Dodge could have beaten both Ford and Chevrolet's...

  • HPE1000 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye
    Hennessey has 1,035-hp package for Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye

    It was only a matter of time before Hennessey Performance Engineering got its hands on the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye. On Friday we learned the tuning company has given the slightly more demonic Hellcat 1,035 horsepower, up from 797. HPE equips the car with the HPE1000 package to create the...

    Mopar ready to stomp the competition with 1,000-horsepower Hellephant crate engine

    We knew the folks at Mopar were planning something big for this week's SEMA show, and on Tuesday collective jaws dropped when the covers were pulled off a 1,000-horsepower crate engine dubbed the Hellephant. The engine, which also generates 950 pound-feet of torque, is a supercharged V-8 with 7.0...

    Demon-powered, carbon fiber-bodied 1970 Dodge Charger arrives at SEMA

    Imagine a 1970 Dodge Charger with all of the best modifications imaginable thrown in. The result, we'd wager, would be something close to SpeedKore Performance Group's Charger Evolution unveiled Tuesday at the 2018 SEMA show. It's a carbon fiber-bodied beast with a V-8 borrowed from a 2018 Dodge...

  • Mopar SEMA teaser for Dodge Charger

    Mopar has teased "something big" for this month's 2018 SEMA show, and it's residing in a first-generation Dodge Charger. The video shows a pair of paw prints stamped over with some rather large prints instead. In the distance, we're treated to a wonderful chugging noise from a loping camshaft before a top-down view brings the classic Dodge Charger into the frame. The video ends on a smokey note with the muscle car performing a burnout. While we're not zoologists here at Motor Authority, the rather large prints lend themselves to a massive beast in the animal kingdom. And one, in particular...

    Buy Michael Andretti's barely used Dodge Demon

    If someone gifted you a car, would you drive it? I assume you would. Especially if that car happens to be an 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Michael Andretti has access to all sorts of cars, so when he's given a Demon he doesn't need to drive it. That's why his car is heading to auction...

  • Hennessey Performance tuned Dodge Demon makes 1,013 rear-wheel horsepower
    Hennessey's Dodge Challenger SRT Demon makes 1,013 HP...at the wheels

    Just a few short years ago, there would have been no way we'd believe that a mainstream automaker would sell a street-legal, 840-horsepower coupe. But Dodge does just that and the car is appropriately called the Demon. As is often the case though, tuning shops love taking already insane things and...

  • 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon sold in September 2018 at Mecum auction
    Pair of Dodge Demons fetch relatively restrained bids at auction

    The suggested retail price of a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is $86,090. That's a ton of cash for a Dodge, but it's actually a fantastic deal considering the Demon is an 840-horsepower drag-strip all star built in a limited run of just 3,300. Good luck finding one for under $100,000, of course...
