2015 Dodge Challenger Shaker Models Coming Soon

2014 Dodge Challenger Shaker
Power and retro cool. The Dodge Challenger Shaker model is serious fun.

Dodge has announced a return to a favorite retro design from the 1970s—Dodge Challenger Shaker models. These models feature a cold-air intake “Shaker” hood scoop that actually shakes when the engine is revved.

This feature was offered for a short time last year on a limited edition model, but this year, it will be available on most V8 Challenger models.

“After selling out last year’s Shaker model production in just four days, our hardcore Challenger customers demanded we bring back the Shaker – plus offer more power and more performance,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT Brands, in a statement. “We listened, and for 2015, the new Dodge Challenger lineup offers the legendary Shaker hood expanded to include our 485 horsepower HEMI V-8 delivering up to 113 more horsepower than last year, plus even more track-proven hardware and technology – a combination our enthusiasts have been waiting for.”

The Shaker hood scoop will be a prime feature on the 2015 Challenger R/T Shaker, R/T Plus Shaker, and 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker models. The “cold-air grabbing” Shaker will come in Satin Black and will direct cold air into either the 5.7-liter or 6.4-liter V8 engines.

To make an even bigger statement with your Dodge Challenger Shaker model, choose from among these fantastic colors: B5 Blue, Sublime Green, TorRed, Billet Silver Metallic, Bright White, Pitch Black, and Granite Crystal Metallic.

2015 Ram Laramie Limited Luxury
Ram is no stranger to luxury, and they’re set to take it up a notch with the Laramie Limited.

Ram revealed what many are calling the most luxurious pick-up truck ever at Chicago Auto Show this week, the 2015 Ram Laramie Limited, a new sports trim package for the Ram Laramie line, with premium features inside and out.

This shiny model has been on display in Chicago, with all of its indulgent styling, including its totally new nose and tail, as well as its leather interior with real wood styling. And chrome – don’t forget about the chrome.

If that wasn’t enough, this package comes with unique 20-inch rims, reminiscent of its monstrous cousin, the Ram Rebel, which also had a recent premiere at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit last month.

The 2015 Ram Laramie Limited reveal also showed us the second interlocking grille design for Ram, who also utilized the concept on the 2015 Rebel.

The 2015 Laramie Limited will be available this summer for purchase, giving you plenty of time to save up and check one out at Corwin Dodge!

Dodge Super Bowl Spot: A Celebration of Life

Dodge's Celebration of Life ad stole the Super Bowl show
Did you catch Dodge’s powerful commercial during the Super Bowl?

Anyone who saw Super Bowl 2015 will likely remember the very controversial play at the goal line.  Outside of the game, certain ads stood out, some didn’t. We found ourselves besotted with the spot celebrating Dodge’s 100 year anniversary,

The Dodge Super Bowl spot featured quite a few charming centenarians, dispensing the kind of advice that can only come from having survived 100 years on this planet.  Some of the gems… “Live for now”…“Life is good…you make it good”…“Learn not to cheat”…“There are miracles all around you”…“Stay young”…“Always tell the truth”…”Put the pedal to the metal.”

The pedal to the metal?  That’s when we see Fred J. Wild, born in 1914, lighting up the tires on a grey Dodge Challenger. While the centenarians continue to deliver bezels of wisdom, we can see Wild doing donuts in his Challenger.

One final bit of advice from Lennie Bluett, born 1919: “Never forget where you came from.”  Amid the smoke from the Challengers burning tires, it’s hard not to get the impression that Dodge never will forget.  We certainly won’t at Corwin Dodge.
