The 2013 SRT Viper (formerly the 2013 Dodge Viper) is one of the most anticipated cars of the year, if not the decade. Today, as promised, the first tantalizing teaser image has been released on SRT’s official Facebook page, revealing just a little of the car’s front-end and in the process confirming that designers aren’t mucking around with the Viper’s DNA too much.
Some of the visible details are a twin-hump roof design, possibly incorporated to aid aerodynamics, as well as a centrally-mounted intake on the hood, and a wide, hunkered-down stance.
The 2013 Dodge Dart made waves with its first set of teasers last week–and with its name, a throwback to the 1970s that left some questioning whether it was a wise choice. Whatever your take on the name, however, the images show the 2013 Dart is shaping up to be a bit of a looker, particularly for its compact class.
The latest teasers reveal a pair of hints at the interior’s design, with the instrument panel and the center media display showcased in dramatic black and red. As for the details, the instrument panel is a 7-inch TFT display with customizable gauges. As configured in the teaser image, it appears to show navigation instructions on a center-mounted LCD screen between the tachometer and transmission (automatic in this case) and fuel/temperature gauges. A digital speedometer readout sits at the top of the center screen, along with what appears to be a speed limit indicator, fuel consumption, and a multi-function trip computer.
The 2012 Dodge SRT8 Super Bee made its debut earlier this month at the LA Auto Show. While we still await official pricing details, reports put the price of the buzzing muscle car right around $40,000.
According to Car and Driver, an SRT spokesperson said the Super Bee will fall right between the $30,000 Charger R/T and the $48,000 Charger SRT8, making $40,000–or perhaps just under– aa solid ballpark estimate.
Ability and feasibility aren’t always harmonious. The former is usually in greater supply than the latter; denial and enabling fill the void. Final words before epic fail often go, “I’d be a fool not to do this,” “What could possibly go wrong?” or the two most potentially painful words on the subject, “Trust me.”
Will Ralph Gilles, Chrysler SRT division president and CEO, boldly say any of the above regarding a possible 2013 Dodge Durango SRT8? Maybe, according to Inside Line. He hasn’t yet, though sources suggest it’s on the table. Little wonder, since the rear-drive only 2011 Dodge Durango R/T with its 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 has found fewer than 2,500 buyers since its March debut.
What Gilles has said is that to make a 2013 Durango SRT8 happen, they’ll look to the current hot rod 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 for starters.
When you were a child, did your mother yell at you to get off the couch and go play outside? Dodge is now doing the same thing, only the reward is a whole lot better than a glass of milk and a freshly baked cookie.
To promote the 2012 Dodge Journey crossover (which it calls a “search engine for the real world”), Dodge is giving away three copies for those who like to play outside. Winning one is simple: all you have to do is find it. Dodge will post clues to the location of the hidden Journey on a dedicated You Tube page, beginning on September 10. The first Journey appears to be hidden in the Western United States, so it’s likely that the next two will be hidden in the Midwest and East, respectively.
If you’re in the market for a 2012 Chrysler 200, a 2012 Dodge Avenger or a 2012 Dodge Journey, we have good news for you: all of these models will cost less than their 2011 equivalents, at least in base trim levels.
The 2012 Chrysler 200 and the 2012 Dodge Avenger will both start at $18,995, which is a difference of $250 compared to base 2011 models. That makes the Chrysler mid-size sedans cheaper than competitors such as the Suzuki Kizashi and the Kia Optima, and we couldn’t find any specific evidence of de-contenting on the 200 or Avenger. That’s not to say that Chrysler didn’t trim a few corners to save money, only that any changes are buried fairly deep on the build sheet.
Gear up, muscle car fans, as we’ve once again got an exclusive scoop on what’s in store for you. The horsepower wars are most certainly not over. Dodge’s newly-formed SRT brand is planning a factory-option supercharger for the LX-platform SRT8 cars that’ll boost the new 6.4-liter HEMI as high as 570 horsepower.
Though it’s likely reluctant to frame it as a response to the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the coming upgraded Ford Mustang GT500, the supercharged SRT8 cars are probably exactly that. Our inside source says the twin-screw supercharger kit, which will be available for order as a factory part, will come very late in calendar year 2012 for 2013 model-year cars, and will boost horsepower up to the 540-570 hp range.
Earlier today we saw the introduction of the new Durango Heat SUV, which comes with a few performance modifications and a fuel efficient V-6 engine. Now we have details on the 2011 Dodge Durango R/T, which is essentially the Durango Heat but with the addition of a powerful Hemi V-8.
Also making its debut this week at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show, the 2011 Dodge Durango R/T is just one of five new R/T models that are being introduced including for the first time a Grand Caravan R/T and Journey R/T.
Dodge will certainly be making its presence felt at this week’s 2011 Chicago Auto Show by introducing a bright new paint finish for its Challenger muscle car. Dubbed Green With Envy, the new exterior color will be available on the 2011 Dodge Challenger R/T and the high-performance 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392.
