  • 2018 Eagle Squadron Ford Mustang GT

    Vaughn Gittin Jr. and Ford Performance unveiled a special Mustang earlier this year. It's called the Eagle Squadron Mustang, and it went under the hammer during July's The Gathering (formerly the Gathering of Eagles), a charity evening in Oshkosh, Wisconsin supporting the Experimental Aircraft Association. One fan, Brayton Williams, placed the winning bid of $420,000 to claim the car as his own. Ford made the announcement on Saturday at the 2018 Woodward Dream Cruise, where the automaker handed the keys over to Williams so he could take the car down the famous Woodward strip.

  • Hellcat driver hits 198 mph on the highway
    22-year old Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat owner charged for going 198 mph on public road

    The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is a 200-mph machine. It's a 707-horsepower (717 for 2019) insane muscle car that's warped our definition of "appropriate power." But with that power comes responsibility, and that's something a 22-year-old in North Carolina clearly lacks. William Jefferson posted a...

    All SRT products undergo 24 hours of racetrack endurance testing

    Performance cars need to perform, and that means withstanding the rigors of track duty and the heat buildup it causes. We've seen that Chevrolet tests every Camaro SS and above (plus 1LE models) on a racetrack for 24 hours and that Audi Sport models do almost 5,000 miles on the Nürburgring...

  • 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor

    New clues have emerged pointing to the possible launch of the Ford Ranger Raptor in the United States. A design patent depicting a Ranger Raptor with features unique to Rangers destined for the U.S. has surfaced on a patent registry in Australia where the mid-size pickup truck was developed. The design patent, which was discovered by the Ranger5G forum, references a design patent application (No. 29/634999) filed in the U.S. in January. It could be that Ford filed the patent application in the U.S. to protect the design of the Ranger Raptor, but as mentioned above there are features that...

    2019 Chevy Camaro SS, V-6 return worse fuel economy than 2018 models

  • A pair of Dodge Demons are being auctioned off in Monterey
    A pair of Dodge Demons will raise hell (and money) in Monterey

    More is better. It's a simple formula and Dodge knows how to tweak it for maximum effect. That's how the Hellcat was originally born, and how we've arrived in a world today that exists with a vehicle called the Challenger SRT Demon. A street-legal drag racing denizen of destructive speed offered...

  • 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody

    Horsepower Hill at Club Motorsports is a 14-percent grade at the scenic road course carved into the side of a mountain in Tamworth, New Hampshire. It’s a heartbreak climb uphill for most cars, but it’s child’s play for the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. One big number makes that possible: 797. It is an easy run for this motor from the dark beyond as it pushes me back into the super-size me sport seat while a red-eyed Hellcat logo embroidered into the flat seatback stares a hole into the back of my helmet. These seats are the antithesis of the tight Recaros...

  • 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt first drive
    2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt first drive review: noteworthy and nostalgic

    I want to be a hero. A hero reminds me of the best versions of me, especially when I can hardly muster enough courage to get out of bed in the morning. The 1968 Ford Mustang fastback sprayed in Dark Highland Green wasn’t a hero when it rolled off the line in January 1968 and onto the screen...

  • 1987 Buick GNX
    Buick led a short-lived muscle car renaissance in the ’70s and ’80s

    The heyday of the Detroit muscle car era certainly was fun while it lasted.

Instead of muscle cars, we were left with the likes of Chevrolet Corvettes with...

    Jeep is readying a new Wagoneer and more upscale Grand Wagoneer for launch early next decade, and a leaked document from a supplier hints that at least one of the full-size SUVs will offer a Trackhawk option complete with a Hellcat 6.2-liter supercharged V-8.

ZF's eight-speed, referred to as the 8HP, already features in numerous products from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, including those with the Hellcat engine. Crucially, the...
