The 2011 Dodge Durango revealed from the Inside out
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Here are some basic facts about the 2011 Dodge
Durango that raise an interesting question.
1) The Durango is built on basically the same platform at the all new Jeep
2) The Durango use the same two engines as the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Of
course the obvious question you might be curious about is...so what's the
difference between the two new SUVs. For starters the Durango seats seven
and is five inches longer. It also doesn't come with the Jeep's fancy air
First Drive: Is 2011 Dodge Charger still style over substance?
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Forty four years ago the very first Dodge Charger
rolled off the assembly line and for much of that time some would say that
the Charger has been style over substance. For 2011 Dodge says that's all
changed. Now that Dodge's parent company Chrysler is owned by European
Fiat, the new Charger is a much more of a blend of European driving
dynamics with more traditional American car muscle. But you have to wonder
does it all work.

Great job Dodge, the car makes incredible power for a factory vehicle. This
car is absolutely 100% stock, and these Dyno numbers are SAE with a
smoothing level of 0.
I cannot wait until the aftermarket community gets their hands on this 392,
great things are going to happen.

2011 Mopar Challenger V10 Drag Pak
In 2009 and 2010, Dodge released a special edition Challenger called the
Drag Pak. Both editions sold out fast so the Mopar boys are building
another one for 2011. If the '09 and '10 models went quick, this one is
going to be gone before you're done reading this paragraph.
Instead of sticking with the 6.1-liter Hemi V8 used last year, the 2011
Mopar Challenger Drag Pak crams a 512-cubic inch, 8.4-liter V10 engine and
mates it to a two-speed automatic transmission. If those engine numbers
sound familiar, and they should, it's because that's the same unit used in
the Dodge Viper -- which produces 600 horsepower and 560
pound-feet of torque.
Go back and re-read that last line -- Viper-V10 powered. Drag-race ready.
Besides the massive mill, this Mopar Challenger Drag Pak also features
everything you need to start your professional drag racing career. Get your
reading glasses out because there's a long list of features, some of which
we've highlighted below (the rest can be seen after the jump):
512 cid V-10 engine
2-speed automatic transmission with shift assembly and built-in roll
Special body-in-white modified for drag racing
Complete fuel cell assembly
Polycarbonate door windows
Lightweight drag-race only front brake assembly
Race-style wheels and tires
Only 70 units will be produced and they'll each have a starting MSRP of
$85,512. There are also three available optional packages for the car. The
Competition Package costs $7,950 and adds an eight-point roll cage,
six-point safety harness and a mesh window net. The Mopar Body Logo Wrap
will cost you $950. Finally, there is a range of available body colors if
you don't like the Bright White paint scheme, and they run $6,800.
The 2011 Mopar Challenger V10 Drag Pak will make its debut at the upcoming
2010 SEMA Show in early November. Since there are only going to be 70 made,
that may be the last time you see one unless you run down to your local
Dodge dealer and fill out an application to own one.

Experience some sights and sounds of the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392
HEMI Inaugural Edition. I was able to drive it on the same canyon roads
that I recently drove the Mustang Shelby GT500 and was shocked
at how fast and how great this car handles for being over 600 lbs. heavier
than the Shelby.
This limited edition 392 I.E. package will cost about $47,000 and features
the new 6.4L HEMI engine that is good for 470 horsepower and 470 ft.lbs.
of torque. The special interior is very flashy at first but fits perfect
with the overall feel of the car...which is in your face awesome but sedate
enough to live with every day.
Speaking of living with this car, during my grueling commute to work the
few days I had this thing, my fuel mileage average was 21 mpg combo which
blew me away.
Do I want this car, heck yes I do! But this price range has some stiff
The collect-ability factor is very high with this factory hot rod though.
Dodge will make less than 1500 of these so you had better get in line
pretty quick to own one.
