2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Cruise Weekend | Edmunds.com

Watch a night drive through LA in the Mini Cooper http://vid.io/xqjf http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=125650 "I'll never be able to face my muscle-car friends if I don't ask you for a ride around the block," Brooks reminds me. "Sure, get in." It's not like I'm going to turn him down. This 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 in all its Hemi Orange splendor has been illegally parked in front of motorhead bookstore Autobooks in Burbank, California, for an hour, so I'd be totally cold to just drive off without giving one of the guys a ride. Dropping the keys into the cupholder, I press the start button. It's plastic rather than some kind of pretentious metal, yet it wakes up the 6.1-liter Hemi V8 all the same. It's a hot afternoon in Burbank, but I put the windows down so Brooks can get the full aural effect. "It idles quieter than I thought it would," he says. "I was expecting it to grumble and snort like the old cars that my friends have." I pull onto Magnolia Boulevard, take a quick right down a side street scanning for children and pets, and go for maybe two-thirds throttle. "That's more like it," says Brooks, bracing himself a little. "The Exhaust note gets all loud and old-school as the revs build, and even though it's an automatic, the car feels fast." A minute later, we roll up to Autobooks and my only Challenger ride-along of the weekend seems to be over. But Brooks knows better. "Wait here a second. I'm going to see if my manager Hiram wants to ride with you."

Chevy Tahoe Hybrid vs Mercedes GL320 Diesel | Comparison Test | Edmunds.com
Watch a night drive through LA in the Mini Cooper http://vid.io/xqjf http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=125645 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid vs. 2008 Mercedes-Benz GL320 CDI No one's talking about it, but the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid and 2008 Mercedes-Benz GL320 CDI are the two most fuel-efficient full-size SUVs on the market. We guess that makes Paris Hilton, proud owner of a 2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid, the hybrid Tahoe's twin, a forward-thinking early adopter at the vanguard of the green car movement. Truthfully, calling either of these SUVs "green" might border on an insult to the color, not to mention the movement. These are still large, comfortable vehicles with more torque than the average commuter needs and more seats than most families will use, perfect for vacations but decadent in daily life. But these vehicles are more reasonable when you consider that the four-wheel-drive 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid earns an EPA rating of 20 mpg city/20 mpg highway, and the all-wheel-drive 2008 Mercedes-Benz GL320 CDI rates 18 mpg city/24 mpg highway. This works out to a combined rating of 20 mpg for both SUVs - a big achievement for a full-size sport-utility. When it comes to large sport-utilities, think of this as a practicality test for hybrid and diesel. In other words, if you want to drive something big without feeling bad, this is what it's all about.

Watch a night drive through LA in the Mini Cooper http://vid.io/xqjf http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=123965 Look no further than the hood scoops on the 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI and 2007 Ford Shelby GT to find the fundamental difference in their personalities. It's here that both cars' sense of purpose and ability is displayed prominently and publicly as a statement of their true character.





2008 Ford Mustang Bullitt | Full Test | Edmunds.com
Watch a night drive through LA in the Mini Cooper http://vid.io/xqjf Ford doesn't build Mustangs to fly. That was true back in 1968 when Steve McQueen sent a GT 390 soaring over the hills of San Francisco in Bullitt. And it's true of the new 315-horsepower 2008 Mustang Bullitt. We jumped it anyway. Not because we wanted to, but because we had to. It's a Mustang Bullitt, and that means it's gotta fly.

Dodge Challenger SRT8 and 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T | Vanishing Point Revisited | Edmunds.com
Watch a night drive through LA in the Mini Cooper http://vid.io/xqjf http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=126092 "Our sole Challenger has just broken the ring of evil the deep blue meanies have so righteously wrought - get through 'em baby, get through 'em." - Super Soul, Vanishing Point 1971 It happens deep in the Nevada desert, just past Austin. On a long, straight section of road with nothing to lose, our friends in the white 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T finally put the hammer down. At once, the rawness and purity of Kowalski's ride pulverizes the well-insulated interior of our 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8, shredding the peace inside the modern car's cockpit with the same brute force Kowalski used to pierce a hole in the cool desert air 38 years ago. Even with my right foot buried, I see nothing but taillights until they disappear into the desert. In these few brief seconds, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is clearly defined by its soft edges and quiet Exhaust. Manufacturers don't let us feel cars raw and unfiltered anymore. Hammering down a desert road with a thin-rimmed steering wheel and pistol-grip shifter - that's raw. Four hundred and forty cubic inches and a four-speed - that's raw. Powerslides unhampered by electronic intervention - that's raw. In 1970, when Kowalski drove this very road - U.S. Highway 50 through Nevada - he felt it. And it was raw.
