Fiat 500: Still Influencing Design & History 60 Years On

A vintage Fiat 500 will be displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in 2019. The tiny, yet affordable car helped put Europe on wheels following World War II. MoMA’s exhibit includes the 500 as one of the world’s more significant design works. Last year, on its 60th birthday, the Fiat 500 joined the permanent collection of the MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art, in New York. MoMA acquired a 500 F series, arguably the most popular 500, manufactured between 1965 and 1972. Fiat’s “great little car” becam...

Ram Releases Two New Trucks & We Gotta Have Them Now

The new Ram 1500 Rebel 12 and 2500 Power Wagon Mojave Sand Edition are on their way. The new editions are tweaked just enough to make them standout from the rest of the pack.   Why have one when two is better? That’s Ram’s mindset lately. The Auburn Hills truck marque shot out of the gate this week, giving fans some new flavors to try. The theme is relatively simple: bigger and badder. Essential character traits of any good truck, admittedly, but does Ram cut the mustard and haul the bacon wit...

2019 Fiat 124 Spider: Growly Pipes & Rally Stripes

The 2019 Fiat 124 Spider is similar to the Mazda Miata but just different enough. The pint-sized cruiser makes for a fun weekend car, especially in its Abarth clothing.  Car enthusiasts and Fiat fans should enjoy picking between all the different available packages.  2019 Fiat 124 Spider You know the Fiat 124 Spider, right? It’s the current Miata in an Armani suit, but not really. It’s actually more than that. There are pretty significant mechanical differences on top of the Italian styling....

Are You The Next Great Fiat Hoonigan Driver?

If you’re in the racing business, finding the hottest of hot shoes is an ongoing process. You are always keeping your eye out for the next great talent to come along. Or, if you want to be more proactive, you can more or less grow drivers the way baseball players are made using the farm system. This second option is just what Fiat is up to. Name Game Specifically, it’s FIAT (which is in all caps, cause that stands for Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino, not cause I’m shouting at you) and Hoon...

Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320: Because Drag Racing

Yes, that’s the actual full name of the car: Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320. Dodge says this latest Challenger variant is a “drag-oriented, street-legal muscle car designed with the grassroots drag racer in mind.” To which I can only say: Duh! Gee, why am I supposed to think it’s a drag-oriented, street-legal muscle car designed with the grassroots drag racer in mind? Is it the Dodge part, the Challenger part, the R/T part, the Scat Pack part or the 1320 part? Stripped Down Guess what (and I’m ...

Fiat Introduces New Chrome Packages But The Shine Is Lacking

Chrome isn’t just for big trucks, now little Fiats are in on the action with a new appearance package for the 500L and 500X. Add this to Fiat’s recent package blitz which includes the Urbana, Blue Sky, and Adventurer editions. And while these appearance packages have their allure, it’s like a sparkler or sugar snake when what’s really needed is a blazing bottle rocket. The Fiat lineup could use an extensive redesign. Something. Anything. These upgraded packages are great, but only go so far as t...

2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye: Frankenstein’s Fury

Leave it to the Dodge boys to not leave well enough alone. As a matter of fact, “not leaving well enough alone” is kind of a company trademark. How else could you explain stuffing a 426 Hemi into a Dodge Dart? Speaking of putting in engines that are too big for everyday rides, say hello to the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Essentially, what we have here, is car engineering a la Dr. Frankenstein; a little bit from here, a little bit from there, and a brain clearly labeled “A.B. Normal...

2019 Dodge Charger Lineup: The Automotive Industry’s John Bender

The Dodge Charger is the captain of the Detroit Muscle team; there is no better example of a modern day muscle car. On the whole, Dodge is becoming (even more so) the most rebellious brand in the automotive industry with their amped-up Chargers, Challengers, and Durangos. As things shift toward electrification and automation, and as countless small SUVs flood the market, Dodge is flying a pirate flag through a sea of Claire Standish wannabes. The 2019 Charger lineup is proof Dodge is not budging...

2019 Ram 1500 “Classic” To Sell Alongside All-New Model

A new addition – or perhaps existing family member – is coming to the Ram truck lineup. A “Classic Badge” is planned and will be sold alongside the all-new 2019 Ram 1500. The truck maker will offer both the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic (known internally as the “DS” model) and the all-new Ram 1500 (internally as “DT”) at its North American dealers through 2018. “As we launch the all-new 2019 Ram 1500, we didn’t want to walk away from a key part of the light-duty truck market,” explained Mike Manley, Hea...

2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: New Appearance Package Proves Minivans Are Cool

Who says minivans can’t be cool?! The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid will still haul the family, but it’s a bit edgier now with the new S Appearance Package. The addition gives the Pacifica Hybrid a shaded and blacked-out look, a design that is becoming quite popular today. The package is – and has been for awhile – available for the gas Pacifica. “The factory custom look of the S Appearance model is really resonating with our Pacifica buyers, so much so that we are now making it available on the Paci...

2018 Fiat 500X Adventurer Edition: A Brief Walk Around

The Italian-inspired Fiat brand certainly knows how to stand out from the crowd.

Adding to that personality is the new 500X Adventurer Edition, which gives fans of the lovable Italian namesake another way to express themselves.

New Study Reveals Disconnect Between Industry & Public With Autonomous Cars

During high school, lunchtime was really “debate incessantly about cars until sixth period begins.” Seriously. But those debates were remarkably simple: “Chevy trucks are way better than Dodge trucks,” “Yeah, like the Ram would ever lose to a junky Chevy,” and “You know what Ford stands for don’t ya?” It was easy to participate. Pick a side (not Ford) and argue, in no scientific or educated fashion, why one vehicle was better than another. And when the bell rang, the consensus was nothing we sai...

2018 Hagerty Hot List of Future Collector Cars

It’s a known fact that new vehicles will start losing value as soon as you drive off the lot.

Prime examples are the Cadillac CTS, Volkswagen CC, BMW 7 Series, and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The aforementioned vehicles are expected to lose approximately 58 to 64 percent of their value in a 36-month period. While this is good news for used car buyer...

New Dodge Durango Package Keeps Departed Era Alive

The Dodge Durango is one of the most underrated SUVs of our time. I’ve said this before, but “grown ups” who still love performance or muscle cars will find the Durango satisfying to their appetites. The modern day Durango has plenty of room, comfort, and technology for the family, but lots of grunt under the hood. It’s so nicely balanced on the spectrum: there’s luxury and technology, but also aggressive styling and raw power. Lots of raw power. Lots. House of Power For example, the 2018 Dura...

New Dodge Challenger Package Reminds Us Why Muscle Cars Rule

Ask Dodge any question today and the answer is horsepower. Is it necessary to have a family hauler approaching 500 horsepower in any automaker’s product lineup, or in your driveway for that matter?

And Mopar enthusiasts can fall in love with their beloved Challenger all over again as Dodge has just released the new Shakedown Package.
