The image of a powerful muscle car zooming down the open road is an iconic piece of historic Americana, but Dodge’s impressive array of sports cars is ready to blast you into the future. The Dodge Charger, Challenger, and the Durango SUV can each deliver on incredible style, immense power, and intense reliability. It’s really no wonder that all three of these cars are incredibly popular.
Huffines CJDR in Lewisville, Texas, knows how difficult it can be to take just one car home with you when you are faced with such great options. That’s why we’ve decided to highlight three of the best features of Dodge’s sports cars in order to help you and other local drivers find your next favorite ride. Let’s take a look at what makes the Dodge Charger, Challenger, and Durango just so desirable.
Street & Racing Technology
Dodge certainly held nothing back when designing these three sports cars. The Challenger, Charger, and even the Durango SUV all have models that are equipped with Street & Racing Technology (SRT). While the more well-known SRT models belong to the Challenger and Charger, the Dodge Durango SRT will turn your world upside down faster than it can go from zero to 60 mph.
You will forget that you’re not actually a race car driver as you gun up the Durango SRT’s 6.4-liter V-8 engine and feel it unleash its 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. This uninhibited and domineering SUV also comes with Brembo brakes. These brakes are a great add-on, as they provide torque advantages that reduce your car’s fuel usage which, in turn, lowers the SUV’s emissions. The Durango simultaneously delivers you speed while saving you money at the gas station. Being environmentally responsible just makes this an even sweeter ride.
Yet another unexpected feature of the Durango is its performance-tuned suspension system. Built into the Durango SRT, this suspension helps to transform the SUV from a reliable family car into a speed demon.
Now, the Charger’s SRT Hellcat will really get your blood pumping, especially since this pony car is outfitted with a 6.2-liter HEMI engine. Sporting 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, it is one of the most powerful sports cars on the road today. There’s no chance that anyone will be able to ignore you when you are driving this phenomenal car.
Dodge really took the sports car game to the next level with the Dodge Challenger when they released the SRT Hellcat and the SRT Hellcat Redeye. You will feel like an absolute legend when you fire up the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcats’s 717 horsepower V-8 engine and kick it into overdrive. While the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye’s 797-horsepower will rocket you forward, its four-wheel independent suspension will make you feel like you are actually flying.
Dodge certainly took a smart approach to the designs of its sports cars by including a widebody kit option. This option helps you maintain control over the immense power emitted by the Charger and Challenger SRT models. A widebody kit is an incredibly helpful add-on as it works to improve the traction of your sports car by widening your car’s stance on the road. The extra grip assist minimizes your car’s chances of sliding when you are engaging in tight turns and can even keep your car from spinning out as you release your inner daredevil.
These widebody kits in addition to the Brembo brakes and other performance enhancements that are available for the Charger and Challenger let you keep a tight grip on your pony car’s reins. It’s also an added bonus that the extra bulk that comes with the widebody option makes your car look even more intimidating as you rush by all the puttering minivans and crawling sedans.
A widebody kit isn’t the only tool built into your car to help you handle your vehicle. The Challenger SRT’s limited-slip differential and rear-wheel drive will help you maintain control over your mechanical beast from the second you peel out of your driveway.
If you are on the hunt for a ride that has unique, unparalleled style, look no further than Dodge’s sports cars. The Durango breaks free of the old, rigid rules of what a sports car should be and tears off into new horizons. You will be captivated by this striking SUV with its hood scoop and two-tiered front fascia. Its muscled body lines and racing stripes add to its overall aggressive, cool look. You will be an impressive sight to see, even as you outrun other drivers on the road with the Durango’s LED racetrack taillamp glowing in the darkness.
While the Challenger and Charger both have their own unique styles, their looks are a little more in line with the typical image that springs to mind when you think of a sports car. The Dodge Charger is considered to be the product of new school design with its profound side chisels and rounded hood and front fascia. The air-induction hood provides both form and function by keeping the engine cool and giving the Charger a sinister edge.
The Challenger, on the other hand, with its wide, flat front fascia and iconic rounded headlights is more in line with the historical sports car look. These features make it all the more appealing to drivers who love that old school pizzazz. But even though the Challenger pays homage to its heritage, its powerful sleek frame lets it bring its own individual sense of glamour into the modern car scene.
The Dodge Durango, Charger, and Challenger each have their own take on the sports car image, but all of them can deliver on your need for speed and look incredible while doing it.
