New Cars for 2016: Dodge

Car News

Durango: Fuel-saving stop-start technology is now standard on Durangos equipped with the 3.6-liter V-6. An optional sport mode said to tweak steering assist, throttle response, and shift timing for sportier performance is available for the first time on all trims. The Citadel trim gets a monochromatic exterior package. A Brass Monkey appearance package (20-inch burnished-bronze wheels, gloss-black grille, and more odd embellishments) will hit the Durango later in the year and taste of malt liquor and orange juice.

Viper (shown above): The ACR (American Club Racer) returns to add bite to the Viper. The massive tires (295/25R-19 front, 355/30R-19 rear) are specifically designed Kumho V720s that shroud six-piston calipers and 15-inch carbon-ceramic brake rotors. If that and adjustable Bilstein coil-overs aren’t enough to tilt your kilt, maybe the optional Extreme Aero package will. Slated for late availability, it includes an adjustable dual-element carbon-fiber wing, bespoke diffuser and hood, a detachable extension on the front splitter, and enough additional dive planes to sink a battleship. Did we mention the hand-built 645-hp V-10 under the hood? See first drive ››
