Design Review: Dodge Demon (2007)

During the 2000s, and well before the FCA Group era, Dodge toyed with the idea of a more affordable sports car to sit below the flagship and fearsome  Dodge Viper. The American company had already presented concept cars to fit that description, like the flashy Copperhead (1997), the smaller Razor (2002) and the rear-engined Slingshot (2004), but none of those vehicles reached production...

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Red Eye review

Mark Donohue, one of the bravest racing drivers of all time, once said he wouldn't regard a car as having too much power until it was capable of spinning all of its driven wheels all the time.

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...

Video: Road-testing the Turo car-hire app, and a Dodge Challenger!

It seems a little flippant to talk about international travel right at the moment, given all that is going on in the world. But the following story comes from a time, late last year in fact, when we could travel. We decided to put it together for you, to give you something to think about when you can travel again...

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 Challenger and GMC Sierra: ADR compliance testing

Read the full article here. There’s no mistaking either the 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat or 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali HD on the road.

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...

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...
