FCA Recall for Confusion Gear Selector

2016_04_22_1e_shifter.58a28

Just days after the latest fatal accident related to FCA’s troublesome electronic gear shifter, the company announced that their dealers now have the new software ready to be installed into vehicles with the electronic shifters. The updated software should prevent the cars from moving when the “Park” gear is not selected and the driver’s door is open.

FCA announced that it was already to issue start a recall campaign on vehicles using their new gear selector. NHTSA reported that the troublesome shifter has resulted in 117 alleged crashes, 28 injuries, and now 1 death that of Anton Yelchin, most notable for playing Checkov in the new Start Trek movies.

The recall impacts Jeep, Chrysler and Dodge vehicles and now spreading to Maserati products as well as they announced today that they will recall the 2014 Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans manufactured from June 1, 2013 to February 28, 2014 because of their confusing gear shifters.


Special Vipers to Celebrate End of Production

Dodge-Viper-25th-Anniversary-04

Ever since we first laid eyes on a concept hot rod from Dodge which had those massively wide fenders and equally monstrous rear tires we knew we were witnessing something special. Over it’s 25 year life span, we have been left with a wonderful library of tire shredding videos. To celebrate the end of the Viper’s production run, five special edition Vipers will be made available for the 2017 year.

Four of the Vipers to be released will be part of the heritage collection meaning they will be based on a Viper from the past. Here is an example of Randy Pobst’s Viper 1:28 Edition ACR which set a 1:28:65 lap time at Laguna Seca. The car will wear custom aero, come with carbon ceramic brakes, and be sporting a black paint job with red striped running front to back. Only 28 of these Vipers will be produced.

We’ll bring you more Vipers over the new few days.


2016 Mopar Dodge Ram Rebel

Mopar-16-Ram-Rebel-2

Dodge’s Ram Rebel is already one mean looking truck, but Mopar is taking things one step further and producing an even more aggressive version of the Ram Rebel which will be sold in limited numbers. Dodge has confirmed that only 500 special edition vehicles will be sold. Each of the vehicles will be outfitted with a catalog full of parts right from Mopar.

Customers who want to purchase a Mopar Ram Rebel will get two color choices: Red and black two tone, or an all black version of the truck. On the exterior, some additional changes include a double scooped hood, large wheel flares, and custom exterior graphics. But peeling back the exterior upgrades, you’ll also find that Mopar outfitted the truck with some protective gear in the form of a skid plate to guard the power steering box, a front bumper skid plate, and door sill guards. While on the performance side, the Mopar Ram Rebel will still get the 5.7L HEMI V8 mated to an eight-speed transmission.

The Mopar Ram Rebel will be priced around $52,460US and should hit showrooms by the end of this summer.


Four Cylinder Dodge Charger?

2017-Dodge-Charger-SRT8

Even though four cylinder technology and power potential have come a longs ways since those dinky little fuel efficient lawn mowers, it is still a surprising move to see Dodge potentially run a four cylinder in their Charger which is has so much of its history rooted in big American gas guzzling V8. When the next refresh of the Charger, expected for 2019, happens, Dodge will likely introduce the four cylinder into their lineup.

The direction from Dodge, it seems, is to focus on creating a light weight Charger which won’t need a lumpy V8 to get it going fast. Currently, there is a high horsepower four cylinder turbo motor in the works from the automaker. It is expected that the new engine should deliver somewhere in the 300hp range. Couple that with a good dose of weight loss and that might still create a fun Charger for the masses.
