Sometimes auto news is moving so fast we can’t possibly get to it all in one post. That’s why here at the end of April, we’re bringing you a roundup of everything you might have missed from Dodge and RAM.
Motor Trend took the Dodge Dart GT for a spin early on, and they found a lot of good things to say about what they’re calling “The Great Pumpkin.” The Dart has a truly unique exterior in a category of small cars that are all starting to look the same. It’s bolder and more masculine than the competition, vibrant orange paint notwithstanding. They also complimented its heavy steering, sporty handling, and competitive performance numbers. We recommend you check out the full review, here.
The popular Black Express outfit for the RAM 1500 will be available on 2500 and 3500 models. Dubbed RAM Black for the heavy duty trucks, there are hardly any stars left in the sky on these creatures of the night. Black body, black bumpers, black wheels, black bezels, and a black RAM badge make these trucks look bad in a good way. They’re available for order now.
Coming from a tradition that dates all the way back to World War II, the RAM Power Wagon was first offered to the civilian market in 1946. Now, the 2014 Power Wagon is hands down the most off-road capable pickup truck available. Adopting a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 and a six-speed automatic transmission, the new Power Wagon will have class-leading horsepower output. Other highlights include front and rear locking differentials, a Warn winch incorporated into the front bumper, and a cylinder-deactivation feature to help with fuel economy. Watch the video above for a full recap of the 2014 Power Wagon’s debut.
Lastly, here’s some advice from a handful of centenarians – people who have lived and learned for as long as Dodge has. This ad was posted to commemorate the 2015 Challenger’s debut, and we think it speaks for itself.
