2017 RAM 2500 Laramie

See the full article here. These days it's not uncommon to see dual cab utes towing all manner of large trailers. Horse floats, cars and boats are common as flies in some parts. This is their bread and butter, but with all that weight, you have to wonder how the engine copes long term and that's precisely where the American tank-esque RAM 2500 Laramie comes into its own...

Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Review

Hellcat! It’s the latest incarnation of the revered Dodge Charger that first rose to fame here in San Francisco in the 1968 hit movie, Bullitt. It had two doors, 375 bhp, and back then, was the world’s fastest production car. But this is no ordinary muscle car. With an inconceivable 707 – brake- horsepower from a supercharged 6...

Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition revealed

Dodge has revealed the (deep breath) Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition (phew!) ahead of the Woodward Dream Cruise, paying tribute to one of its 1960s legends. The blue-and-white Daytona (as it'll be known from here forwards, purely to save words) is based on the existing Charger Hellcat Widebody, with power from the same supercharged 6...

2004-09 Dodge Ram added to Takata recall

Queensland's Maracoonda Automotive has issued a recall for converted Dodge Ram utes sold between 2004 and 2010 as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. As with all Takata notices, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause airbag inflator propellant to degrade over time...

2007 Dodge Nitro recalled

2007 Jeep Compass and Dodge Caliber recalled

1966 Dodge Phoenix review

In 1966, the Dodge Phoenix was the top-of-the-range offering from Chrysler Australia, with a smooth 318ci V8 and three-speed auto, massive comfortable seats, and a ride deserving of the big American presence it carried on the road. The 1966–’67 Dodge DB Phoenix sold in Australia had the same body as the 1966 Plymouth Fury in the United States...

2012 Dodge Journey Review

Are you looking for a seven seat family car? Just asking that question is like having a discussion on which shade of beige would best suit your toilet walls. The burgeoning 7 seater SUV/People mover market has seen it hotly contested from the Honda Odyssey to behemoths like the Audi Q7. In this mix is the Dodge Journey...

2012 Dodge Journey Review

Striding in like a group of brash outlaws in an old Western, the Dodge range arrived in Australia in 2006 ready to cause a ruckus. The outlaws were a bit rough around the edges but they were boldly styled and aggressively priced. But the Aussie townsfolk found these miscreants too uncouth and drummed them out of town, except for the sharpest gunslinger of the bunch, the Journey...

1968 Dodge PHOENIX Review

Dodge was never a company known for its subtlety and with this Detroit destroyer it certainly is business as usual. Packing a Magnum 440 under its vast hood, in true American style it's a car that is heard well before it is seen; or that's what you'd think when you hear the 50cal V8 soundtrack start ‘clack-clacking' off the skyscrapers from over a mile away anytime you go near a city...
