The Force Awakens 707 Horses

Prior to Christmas and the release of the latest chapter in the Star Wars saga, Dodge dressed up a couple of Hellcats and a Viper and captured the streets of Los Angeles by storm, allowing fans to take pictures and videos of the memorable occasion. Special Stormtrooper wraps jazzed up both a Dodge Charger and Challenger Hellcat, while a Dodge Viper paid homage to Kylo Ren, one of the leaders of the dark side. Although evil is not an available option in any of the three vehicles, there’s no denying they are some of the baddest cars on the planet. Los Angeles fans of the cars and the movie were able to track the cars’ location by using Twitter hashtags #Dodge and #TheForceAwakens. Stop in Chapman Payson, your Payson Dodge dealer, to see about arranging a test drive in one of these three muscle cars.

Challenger Hellcat Most Powerful Pony Car Ever

When you consider the battle of the Pony Car that has been going on for almost 50 years, the fight for number one has flipped between the Ford Mustang, Chevy Camaro and Dodge Challenger. With the release of the 707-horsepower engine last year, the Challenger is the clear winner in power and performance. When compared against the Camaro ZL1 and Mustang’s Shelby GT350, the Challenger has more horsepower, better gas mileage and even seats five people compared to four for each of the other two cars. The Challenger Hellcat even comes with more standard features than the other two, including dual zone climate control, an overhead console and a power tilted and telescoping steering wheel.

Charger Hellcat Screams Family Car

Perhaps the most fun that was ever allowed with four doors, the Dodge Charger Hellcat will definitely make the crossing guards at school sit up and take notice when you drop the kids off. Really the only vehicle to compare it to is a BMW M5, which costs $30,000 more while delivering about 130 fewer horses. As one of the most sought-after muscle car from Detroit’s golden age, the Charger has the heritage to go along with modern technology. The supercharged engine is just the beginning of the fun. Step into the Charger’s command center and feel yourself embraced by the color-coded racing seats. Steering wheels control let you keep both hands at 10 and 4 while you unleash this beast and put a smile on all the passengers’ faces.

Dodge has announced that 2016 is the last year for production of the Viper, but it’s going out with a bang. Stop by your Payson Dodge dealer and see how you can get your hands on one of America’s truly special sports cars.

Join a club like the Rim Country 4 Wheelers to not only find these trails, but learn from the experience of more accomplished off-road drivers. Clubs promote safe and responsible four-wheeling, which helps preserve the backcountry for all to enjoy.
