2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat revealed

Aug 13 2014 10:28am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Performance, Chrysler, Dodge Almost immediately after we drove the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, we began wondering: what's next? Pumping 707 horsepower into the Challenger seemed so crazy - and so intoxicating - we just assumed that Dodge would try that trick again. Rumors swirled about a Charger Hellcat. Frankly it makes even more sense than the Challenger version. The Charger is a bigger car, and Dodge has never been shy about dropp ...

A month with the 2014 Ram 1500 Laramie EcoDiesel

Aug 12 2014 11:01am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Everyone knows buying a pickup means spending plenty of money at the pumps. It’s the sacrifice so many of us make for the capability and power of a truck — the price of admission, so to speak, for the utility a half-ton affords. But, clearly, it doesn’t have to be so painful, as the 2014 Ram 1500 Laramie EcoDiesel we tested for the past month so loudly demonstrates. Starting with a full tank, and having just driven 900 kilometres, I sit here this day with roughly a quarter tank ...

Phantom Menace: Boeing Solves Its Own Cargo Problem with a New-Age Jeep

Aug 8 2014 9:52am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

It’s a typical government problem: You’ve spent billions of dollars developing an aircraft unlike any other for the express purpose of getting troops into remote areas faster than traditional helicopters can. But the result, the tilt-rotor V-22 Osprey, is so ­narrow that military ground vehicles can’t be transported with those troops. So once you’ve rushed them into position, what then? Now Boeing, one of the Osprey’s designers, has developed a solution with a ...

We know because we did it. Officially, though, the 1500 gets just 20 mpg combined. A more impressive number is the 28 mpg on the highway. Bob Hegbloom, the Ram brand director, thinks that there ...
