What's New for 2019: Dodge

November 21, 2018

Dodge might as well be called America's department of muscle cars.

For 2019, the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles division is just as performance-oriented as it was last year, but with some notable changes. The seemingly evergreen Dodge Challenger drops its Demon model in favor of a more honed, track-oriented SRT Hellcat Redeye iteration with less power but more poise. Another version of the Challenger, the R/T Scat Pack 1320, adds the Demon's dragstrip-focused gear. 

Some of those changes make their way to the Dodge Charger, but the rest of the lineup largely carries over. Even the Dodge Journey sticks around for what's likely to be its last year (fingers crossed) before a redesign.
