It’s Coming!

Dodge Challenger at All Star Dodge Ram in Missouri

There have been rumors swirling for months, but now it is really happening! The Dodge Challenger Demon is coming to dealerships, including All Star Dodge Ram in Missouri! This powerful sports car is sure to get your blood pumping! Don’t just take our word for it, we want you to experience it for yourself! However, that is not going to keep us from telling you about it here today!

In a news release from Friday, the company said the limited-production 840-horsepower car – “the industry’s first and only purpose-built, street-legal production drag car” – is on its way to dealers. The car goes 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds and has a 6.20-liter Hemi V8 engine.

The Demon is the world’s fastest quarter-mile production car, as certified by the National Hot Rod Association, according to the Detroit Free Press. Tests found the car can travel a quarter mile in 9.65 seconds at 140 mph. It has a top speed of 168, according to Popular Science.

“The people who bought a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon are performance enthusiasts to the core, and having a custom car with accessories that improve overall performance is critical,” said Tim Kuniskis, Fiat Chrysler North America’s head of Passenger Cars, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT.

Only 3,300 will be produced and prices start at $84,995. Customers can also receive plenty of extra accessories. While the mega-muscle car has been highly anticipated by fans, its production hasn’t been without controversy, the Free Press reports.

A top trade publication, Automotive News, wrote an editorial seeking to ban Demons from the street: “The 840-hp Dodge Challenger SRT Demon from Fiat Chrysler is so inherently dangerous to the common safety of motorists that its registration as a road-worthy automobile should be banned,” it says.

We think that the drivers should decide. Get to All Star today and get your Dodge Challenger!

Do You Feel The Need for SPEED???

Dodge Charger at All Star Dodge near Kirkwood

There has been a lot of talk lately about how the sequel to TOP GUN is happening and will be in theaters before we know it. If you are not satisfied with just the speed in the movies and want to experience speed for yourself, you need to get the Dodge Charger from All Star Dodge near Kirkwood. The Charger is already fast as it is, but there are some top level trims that will make it even faster – we want to take a look at those trims today.

Going with the Charger Daytona gets you the R/T’s special exterior styling elements and interior trim, a further upgraded performance suspension, forged alloy wheels, leather and simulated-suede upholstery, and the Premium Group content with the exception of navigation and BeatsAudio, which are available separately.

The R/T Scat Pack adds to the R/T a bigger V8 engine, upgraded performance brakes, a further upgraded “high-performance” suspension, the rear parking sensors, rearview camera and eight-way power front seats. Leather and simulated-suede upholstery is optional, and with it you get the heated and ventilated front seats and heated rear seats.

The SRT 392 adds to the R/T Scat Pack an adaptive suspension, forged alloy wheels, the Daytona 392’s upgraded brakes, xenon headlamps, the blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems, all-leather upholstery, a flat-bottomed steering wheel and the Uconnect navigation system. The Technology Group is optional.

“The SRT Hellcat adds to the SRT 392 content a more powerful supercharged V8, upgraded steering and suspension tuning, and all of the above options. It reverts to the manual-adjustable steering wheel and eliminates the four-way power lumbar seating, but you can get the latter as well as the power-adjustable wheel as part of the Power Convenience Group.”-edmunds.com

Otherwise, there are only minor feature changes, including the new Anodized Platinum package with two-tone leather upholstery for the Citadel trim.

Dodge has kept this three-row crossover fresh, most notably with a significant update for 2014 that added a satisfying eight-speed automatic transmission and a revised interior with Chrysler’s excellent 8.4-inch touchscreen. Moreover, the fundamentals have always been strong with this one, including extraordinary towing capacity, available V8 power and adult-sized space in the third row.

“The 2017 Dodge Durango is available in four trim levels: SXT, GT, Citadel and R/T. Seven-passenger seating is standard, while second-row captain’s chairs that reduce capacity to six are optional. Note that the base SXT can be specified with just two rows of seats for 2017, while the other trims are three-row only.”-edmunds.com

Challenger Hellcat Faster than Expected

ROYAL OAK MI/USA - AUGUST 15 2014: A 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hemi Hellcat car at the Woodward Dream Cruise the world's largest one-day automotive event. Woodward is a National Scenic Byway and Michigan Heritage Route.

Dodge Challenger at All Star Dodge near Mehlville

We have talked before about the new Challenger trim, the Hellcat, that will be coming out soon. The new Challenger Hellcat will be edgier than the other trims and offer an engine with loads of agility. We had thought that Dodge had all of the final details of the Hellcat trim ironed out, and then we hear the news about the added horsepower. Let us take a deeper look at this today.

Like the standard Challenger, the Hellcat will ride on the same rear-wheel drive platform as the Alfa Romeo Giulia and, possibly, the second-gen Dodge Journey. (Some of this is just rumor and speculation at this point.) The Italian architecture will make the Challenger markedly smaller and lighter than the current model, and more dynamic to drive.

Buyers will be asked to choose between V6 and V8 engines, and it’s not too far-fetched to speculate that the coupe will receive the 300-horsepower turbo four that will be inaugurated next year by the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Technical details about the Hellcat model are few and far between, but its output is expected to lie in the vicinity of 750 horsepower.

“Interestingly, Automobile Magazine reports the Challenger will spawn a convertible model that will resurrect the Barracuda nameplate. It will be shorter than the Challenger, and it will feature a look of its own that will pay homage to the original Plymouth-badged Barracuda. The Dodge Barracuda and the next Challenger are expected to land in time for the 2019 model year, assuming they aren’t delayed. We might have to wait until the turn of the decade before we see the next Hellcat, however.” -leftlanenews.com

Durango Goes Brass Monkey

Dodge Durango at All Star near Illinois

Brass Monkey, you funky monkey… Can you name that song? It is Brass Monkey by the Beastie Boys! For those who love the song, or the band, or the look of the new Durango package, you will want to pay close attention, because we are going to share with you information on this great new trim from Dodge!

“The 2016 Dodge Durango full-size SUV will arrive at Dodge dealerships later this year with several upgrades, including standard engine stop-start technology on models equipped with the 3.6-liter V6 engine and a new Brass Monkey Appearance package.” -edmonds.com

-Pricing will be announced closer to launch date.-

The updates are designed to make the Durango more competitive against the Ford Explorer, Nissan Pathfinder and Toyota Highlander. Engine stop-start technology lowers emissions and saves fuel by shutting the engine off when the vehicle comes to a complete stop. (The EPA has not released fuel economy numbers on the 2016 Durango, but we expect it to be similar to the existing models.) The optional 5.7-liter V8 engine does not receive stop-start.

The Brass Monkey Appearance package, which will be available late in the model year, adds 20-inch Burnished Bronze wheels, Gloss Black grille and exterior badge, body-color door handles, exterior mirrors, front fascia, rear fascia, sills and wheel flares.

All 2016 Durangos get a Sport mode button for what Dodge calls a “more responsive driving experience.” Sport mode adjusts the steering and pedal calibration and shift pattern.

We are sure that everyone is going to love the new Brass Monkey package! For more information on this package, stop by All Star Dodge Cars Dealership near Illinois. Their friendly team would be more than happy to tell you about the existing packages and about the packages that will be released soon!
