Giving it stick gives it less go.

American muscle takes on Australian compliance rules: Noise, speedo and brakes tested at the drags

There's no mistaking either the 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat or 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali HD on the road. Despite their rarity in Australia, American muscle cars and pick-up trucks are legendary and when they are spotted, they turn heads and put smiles on faces. There's just something about them...

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 Speed Date

Well, this is a bit awkward … I’ve had a big crush on the Challenger ever since I first saw it. Those toned curves. That shapely behind. Our first date had to be special – and so we hit up Venice Beach in Los Angeles for a night out on the town.

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...

Demon v ZL1 v ZR1 track battle - video

Chevrolet and Dodge have had some epic muscle car battles over the years – think Corvette and Viper for example. With the Viper gone, Dodge's flagship performance models have been SRT versions of the Challenger coupe, the most potent version being the Demon. In the Chevrolet corner, meanwhile, the General Motors subsidiary has maintained its two-pronged attack with the Corvette and Camaro...

Sergio Marchionne: A brief history of his time as CEO of Fiat and Chrysler

Sergio Marchionne, head of Fiat since 2004 and Chrysler from 2009, has passed away aged 66 after complications arising from surgery. Known for his straight-talking style, workaholic lifestyle, and love of black wooly sweaters, Marchionne was not a noted "car guy", but his legacy includes turning around not one, but two automakers...

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...
