The 2011 Dodge Charger

The 2011 Dodge Charger looks, feels and sounds like a classic muscle car. This full-sized sedan is worth every penny of its $ 25,395 starting price because it hugs the road and manoeuvres with grace while providing the power and speed expected of a Dodge. This car is perfect in every way – from the careful design of its interior to the smooth clean lines of the exterior and the speed and power of the engine. The 2011 Charger is truly at the top of its class. Dodge did a great job on the 2011 charger engine because there are no used Charger engines from earlier years that match up to the 2011 version.

Features of the 2011 Dodge Charger

Interior Features

Pre-wiring for phone

iPod integration

USB Connection

Low level fuel warning

Cruise control on the steering wheel

The premium cloth that covers the seats gives the interior of the charger an expensive look and feel and it also flows well with the rest of the interior design. The interior is spacious with a lot of head and leg room space and that feature coupled with the standard features makes the charger a comfortable ride.

Exterior Features

The color options for the 2011 Dodge Charger are not very exciting but this is hardly noticeable with its chic design and big body. The exterior is really impressive; the shape of the back is round in a charming way which is a feature that fits in very well with the rest of the body of the car. The beautiful designed body sits atop the 17 x 7.0 inch painted alloy wheels (the buyer can choose to upgrade to 18 x 7.5 Chrome-clad Aluminium wheels), which makes it even more stunning.

Engine Features and Performance

Gas engine

3.6 liter engine

V6 cylinders

24 valves

260 feet per pound at 4800 revolutions per minute

292 Horsepower at 6350 revolutions per minute

Five-speed shiftable automatic transmission

The 2011 Charger is also available as a 5.7 liter V8 also with a five-speed automatic transmission. With the five-speed transmission that works with the 3.6 liter engine, one would think that the Charger is not a performer but this is not so. The charger is extremely powerful with 260 feet per pounds of torque and 292 horsepower. This is a power that many other sedans in its class do not have. Not only is the Charger powerful, it is also a fast car with easy handling at both low and high speeds as this car hugs the roads in corners like many others can’t. This engine is definitely a performer.

The 2011 Dodge Charger is a good choice for buyers who want the sports car feel. This car is loud in a good way. One cannot help but notice its exquisite external features which are only the prelude of what is on the inside of the car. The interior is simply gorgeous but, most of all, it is practical and comfortable (two words that cannot be used to describe the engine). The engine, in its two available sizes, is powerful, easy to handle and fast. With all these features in the 2011 Charger, the buyer is simply lucky.

2011 Dodge Journey

Dodge continues to unleash new products to the market, introducing the new 2011 Dodge Journey, its mid-size crossover with “right sized” proportions, five- or seven-passenger seating, innovative storage solutions, abundant safety and security features, all-wheel-drive capability and models packaged for a variety of lifestyles.

For 2011, Dodge takes what was good and makes it better. The Dodge Journey receives a major overhaul with a completely redesigned and retuned suspension, a new V-6 engine and a gorgeous new interior. And that’s not all. Dodge Journey also features the latest and greatest in vehicle connectivity and customization with the Chrysler Group’s new PowerNet electrical architecture. Owners will feel like they have the world at their fingertips with the Dodge Journey’s available touch-screen command center, Uconnect Touch.

From navigation to dual-zone climate controls to the ability to check fuel prices, the all-new Uconnect Touch media center makes life in the new 2011 Dodge Journey an excellent adventure for the driver and passengers. Four Uconnect Touch models are available, all featuring easy-to-use controls and class-leading technology. With its touch-screen display and user-friendly touch-key categories, connecting and controlling personal devices is simple, intuitive and customizable.

The 2011 Dodge Journey is nimble, composed and handles well in all driving and road conditions. Chrysler Group engineers improved routine ride handling by re-engineering the suspension geometry, adding new, improved premium tires and redesigning the steering for a more precise and coordinated response. Overall, customers will be treated to an energetic, fun-to-drive experience behind the wheel.

In addition, at 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, the 2011 Dodge Journey equipped with the new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine delivers a 20 percent boost in power compared with the V-6 engine it replaces. It’s mated to the smooth-shifting six-speed transmission.

Drivers also will be treated to a smooth, quiet ride. Engineers reduced noise, vibration and harshness by installing new, premium sound-deadening treatments and insulation throughout the vehicle.

But perhaps the most rewarding surprise is Dodge Journey’s new interior. Customers will step into world-class levels of craftsmanship and comfort. A beautifully crafted one-piece instrument panel sets the tone. A new, larger cluster with standard electronic vehicle information center (EVIC) is positioned in the center of the new gauges. It’s a full-color display backlit in Dodge red lights, giving it a soft glow unlike any in the segment. New, integrated center stack bezels are less angular and more sculpted, and designers softened the radius to make more room for the driver’s knees. The heating and cooling outlets are also redesigned to make them better looking and better functioning.

The center console gets a lot of extra cushion on the tilt-and-slide armrest. Lift the lid, and there’s a larger center storage bin with a 12-volt outlet and USB port where owners can hook up their MP3/iPod charging connections and hide them away.

The design team also worked to make the Dodge Journey’s interior more comfortable. They moved the shifter and cupholders, making it easier for drivers and passengers to get their coffee and soda without having to lean over and under the dash. There’s also a larger front storage bin with side nets. The new multi-functioning three-spoke Dodge brand steering wheel with integrated controls and a wider, longer, soft-touch armrest transform the driver’s seat into a cockpit-like experience. Comfortable new seats might just make drivers want to take the long way home to get a little extra seat time. The Dodge Journey offers six new interior color and trims to complete the makeover.

On the outside, Dodge Journey maintains its sculpted, clean, aggressive lines, and adds a new front fascia that sports the signature Dodge Brand “split crosshair” honeycomb grille. The fog lamp bezels are bigger and bolder, and Journey models with the Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 get a new, unique more aggressive lower fascia with the honeycomb texture in the grille (late availability). New 19-inch wheels, a new, less angular rear fascia and “ring of fire” LED taillamps wrap it up from front to back.

Dodge Journey also is loaded with an abundance of safety and security features, including: standard advanced multi-stage front passenger air bags, active head restraints, electronic stability control (ESC) with all-speed traction control, electronic roll mitigation and brake assist, new driver-side knee blocker air bag, supplemental side-curtain air bags covering all three rows, supplemental front-seat-mounted side air bags, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, LATCH child seat anchor system and trailer sway control.

The Dodge Journey is built in at Chrysler Group LLC’s Toluca Assembly Plant in Toluca, Mexico. It will arrive in U.S. dealerships in fourth quarter of 2010.

2011 Durango

2011 Dodge Durango ?

After being off the market for a year, the Dodge Durango re-emerges with a new body and a new style of driving that makes it competitive against other crossover SUVs.  The new 2011 Dodge Durango now has a car-like single unit platform, which is much different from the tuck-like body-on-frame SUV structure of former models. The Dodge Durango’s new body gives it a quieter, more balanced ride and better handling dynamics.  There have also been upgrades to the interior with higher quality and more luxurious materials replacing lower quality plastics.

Improvements to the Dodge Durango have also been made under the hood. The 2011 Durango has a smoother and more powerful 3.6–liter V6 engine that cranks out 290 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of Torque, a noticeable increase of 80 horsepower over the earlier 3.7-liter V6 engine.  Some of 2011 Durango models come with an optional 5.7 Liter V8 engine, which offers 360 horsepower and 390 pounds-feet of torque.  You can buy a used Durango engine with anywhere from a 3.7 liter to a 5.9 liter engine.

Frog Follies Coming To Evansville Indiana

The Frog Follies is one of the largest 1949 and earlier street rod shows in the world.  It spans over a 3 day weekend starting this year on August 26 through the 28th.  On average the event brings in over 4,000 street rods, covering the entire Evansville, IN 4H Grounds.  Needless to say, the entire city knows it’s time for the Follies when restaurants, hotels, and the roads are filled with loud cars and cool attitudes.

This year I plan on attending the event and taking pictures from gate open till gate close time on Saturday August 27th.  In past years I’ve always attended the event with friends and family, but not had enough time to really appreciate all the hard work put into these amazing vehicles.  Thankfully I’ve upgraded my photography equipment and cleared my schedule for what hopefully be one of the largest galleries from the Follies ever.  Previous years have been me attending faithfully, but not producing any kind of content for the webs, hopefully this year will be different.

Hyundai Sales Making News

October was a good month, Fall arrived, leaves started falling, and Hyundai proudly reported an increase in sales of almost 40%.  Worthy reason to celebrate, but not for Hyundai, who plans on increasing all of 2011 sales by at least 14%.  We’re talking a massive increase projection, for an entire year!

So how did Hyundai increase sales successfully?  Reportedly the 2011 Sonata is what drove sales figures higher and made car salesmen happy on pay day.

Hyundai hopes to sell 3.8 million cars in 2011, an amazing figure for the 5th largest car maker in the world.  Obviously the Sonata sedan will help, but what about Hyundai’s other line up of vehicles and there latest jump into the luxury market with the Hyundai Equus?

No doubt it will take a diverse line up of vehicles, that Hyundai has committed themselves to providing.  Whether it’s small fries like the Accent or the performance of the Genesis, Hyundai hopes to have you covered.  Perhaps we’ll take a look at their concept cars in a future post as well, some very exciting things happening, like the Veloster.
