The “most powerful muscle car ever,” as it comes billed, will be EPA rated at 13 miles per gallon in the city, 22 mpg on the highway for a combined 16 mpg for the eight-speed automatic-transmission version. For the manual shifter, deduct 1 mpg on the highway.
The Hellcat, with a 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V-8 engine, will get better highway gas mileage than a $425,845 12-cylinder Lamborghini Aventador roadster, which comes in at 10 mpg in the city, 16 mpg on the highway and 12 mpg overall, Chrysler points out. he 2014 Ford Mustang with a 5.8-liter V-8 engine achieves 15 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway and 18 mpg overall. The Chevrolet Camaro with a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine racks up 12 mpg city, 18 highway and 14 overall.
“The new 2015 Dodge Challenger is the perfect street / strip muscle car,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO – Dodge and SRT Brands. “As the fastest muscle car ever, the Challenger Hellcat can run 10-second ETs at the track, and then get 22 miles per gallon on the drive home. With a starting price of $59,995, there’s nothing else that even comes close.”
The Dodge Viper, among Detroit’s most celebrated muscle cars, is getting a rare $15,000 price reduction amid disappointing sales in a market that has shown a healthy appetite for pricey sports cars from domestic rivals. “The Viper, which had been carrying a base price of at least $100,000, will now start at about $85,000. While the Viper is still more expensive than the Chevrolet Corvette or Ford Mustang, the new price is more akin to its inflation-adjusted price at first launch in 1992,” Chrysler said.
“The new Viper, the fifth generation of the auto, made its debut as a 2013 model. Anyone owning a fifth-generation model before Monday’s pricing reduction will receive a $15,000 certificate toward a new Viper purchase,” Chrysler said. SRT, short for Street and Racing Technology, has been folded back into the Dodge brand after a failed attempt to make it stand on its own.
“Dealers who had previously wanted to sell the Viper needed to spend $25,000 to obtain special equipment. That initiative has been shelved, opening the door for all 2,300 Dodge dealers to sell the Viper,”the auto maker said.
So many people think a minivan is just a minivan! However, there is much more to it than meets the eye! So let’s start at the top and work our way down! Roof Racks!
Accommodate just about anything you might carry on your journey. The Stow N Place Roof Rack can transport up to 150 pounds of properly secured cargo. When not in use, fold the crossbars down into the side rails to help improve aerodynamics and decrease wind noise. Need to get inside? No Problem! Access the power sliding doors and power liftgate in one of three ways—with your remote keyless entry, the power door lock switch on the interior front door panels or the liftgate release handle.
The sun bright out? No worries! Working double-duty, deep-tinted sunscreen glass obscures the view of objects inside your vehicle from outsiders while it helps protect passengers from the sun’s harsh rays. The storage is out of this world though!
The Stow ’n Go Seating and Storage System includes fold-in-the-floor seats and in-floor storage bins. One quick motion folds, tumbles and stows the seats into the floor. Folding the second and the third rows gives you 143.8 cubic feet of storage. The Chrysler Town & Country comes with a class-exclusive super console, which features a large driver-accessible storage area and another large storage drawer accessible by both first- and second-row passengers.
The fun though, starts with the safety! Rear Cross Path Detection uses sensors to monitor for vehicles and objects crossing your path when you’re moving in reverse. The system alerts you with an icon in the exterior mirrors if a vehicle approaches from the left or right. Rain-Sensitive Wipers activate automatically when they detect moisture on the windshield. You don’t have to take your hands off the wheel to adjust the wiper controls as the rain level changes. The ParkSense Rear Park Assist System uses sensors that detect objects when your vehicle is moving in reverse at low speeds. The sensors determine relative distance, and readouts in the instrument cluster notify you of the proximity of the object.
The children need to have fun, too! Keep your passengers occupied with a standard dual-screen Blu-ray and DVD Entertainment System that includes second- and third-row viewing screens. Appreciate the designed-in sound of the Infinity nine-speaker system with subwoofer, standard on the Town & Country Limited. It delivers superb quality surround sound with an 11-channel amplifier and 506 watts of power.
Are you looking for that new Chrysler 200!! Woody’s Automotive Group has several! Stop in today and check this out! With its redesigned look and open cabin, you really feel like you are driving on air!
“Chrysler Group LLC said Monday its U.S. sales chief Reid Bigland will head Alfa Romeo in North America, a move that comes as parent Fiat F.MI +0.95% SpA seeks to cement the luxury brand’s return to the U.S. after nearly two-decade hiatus.”
“Alfa’s return to the U.S. begins this year with the arrival of a new two-seater sports car, called the 4C. Fiat has a number of other Alfa models planned for the U.S., but the bulk of them won’t start arriving until 2016. Right now, Chrysler is in the process of trying to sign up dealers to sell its Alfa Romeo models.”
If you’re the type who has to be the first on your block — or a real fan, an “Alfisti” — Alfa already announced that a 4C “Launch Edition” will go on sale this summer starting at $69,695, including a hefty $1,295 destination fee. Both versions of the mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive 4C are powered by an all-aluminum 237-horsepower, turbocharged 1.75-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Alfa pegs the 4C’s zero-to-60-mph time in the mid-4-second range and says the coupe has a top speed of 160 mph.
Just when you were getting used to what those Ford Explorer police cruisers look like in your rearview mirror, there’ll soon be a new face in town.
Dodge has unveiled the 2015 Charger Pursuit, featuring the model’s updated look. C-shaped LED running lights and the Charger’s signature crosshair grille make it easy for you to pick out of traffic, while new projector-beam headlamps should help do the opposite for the officers inside.
Powered by either a 292 hp 3.6-liter V6 or 370 hp 5.7-liter Hemi V8, it’s available with all-wheel-drive and is one of the quickest cop cars around. It’s also got cop shocks, cop brakes…you know the drill. One engine not (yet?) available is Dodge’s new 707 hp Hellcat V8, which is rumored to be coming to the Charger lineup. Suffice it to say, the crooks wouldn’t stand a chance against that one.
A pair of Dodge’s full-size, four-door bruisers wearing front and rear camo, reported to be packing a version of the Challenger SRT’s Hellcat V-8. Caught testing in southeast Michigan, the partial cover-up on these Chargers can’t hide the presence of a large hood scoop, aggressive chin and trunk-lid spoilers, and larger exhaust tips.
As Chrysler’s standalone tuning division, SRT was responsible not only for the Viper, but also for injecting adrenaline into a number of Mopar products in the name of performance. So when the refreshed-for-2015 Charger debuted in New York earlier this year, we were a little befuddled that the manufacturer made no mention of what SRT might be cooking up for the four-door muscle car.
This car is all about the engine, in this case the Hellcat’s supercharged V-8. We expect the Hellcat V-8 to arrive packing the same 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque it makes in the Challenger, its might backed up to the same ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.
Today, I’m taking it backwards. We recently had our annual car show here in town and I got to see a 1962 Chrysler 300! Boy, was it easy on the eyes! Good news is they still are today! You could really tell that Chrysler paid as much attention to detail in the 300 then as they do now. With great frame work, design and luxury, the 300 has really stood the test of time!
Still a larger sedan, still equipped with unique headlamps and more! Chrysler really did create the ultimate luxury vehicle when they designed then 300, then and now!
Come see some today at Woody’s Automotive Group
This week Woodys Automotive Group traveled out to the county fair! We messed around with some typical farm animals : cows, chickens, pigs, etc! Check out the weekly update which we also filmed from the fair! It is pretty great and a lot of fun to film!
