2018 Dodge Models
2017 was a very busy year for the Dodge brand. In addition to the final goodbye to the Dodge Viper, the release of two throwback models, the Challenger T/A series and Charger Daytona series, and the addition of the Challenger GT AWD, the world’s only an all-wheel-drive two-door muscle car, Dodge also made several new announcements about new models coming to the 2018 model year.
With the Dodge Viper no longer a on SRT’s agenda, Dodge and SRT filled their time with new SRT models. For the 2018 model year, there are three new SRT models and they are 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT and the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Widebody. Along with those new models, there are a handful of other upgrades and new options available on all 2018 Dodge models.
The Dodge Challenger lineup is shining bright for the 2018 model year. Thanks to the addition of the world’s most powerful factory-produced muscle car, the 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT, and the available new Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody trim, the Challenger lineup is stronger than ever. Alongside the debut of the new models, there are several new changes to other Challenger trims.
All 2018 Challenger models come standard with a backup camera and other modifications include the new standard 7-inch touch screen and Uconnect 4 with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on the Challenger SXT, R/T, R/T Shaker, and T/A trims. Dodge has also added two new exterior colors to the lineup, F8 Green and IndiGO Blue.
For the 2018 model year, Dodge made some changes to the base trims. The Charger GT AWD comes standard with 300 horsepower, Dodge Performance Pages and 19-inch wheels. The Charger SXT is equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen, Uconnect 4 and the Charger SXT Plus is now available an upgraded appearance package that includes exterior upgrades and a leather interior. Also, like the Challenger lineup, all Charger models come standard with a backup rearview camera and F8 Green and IndiGO Blue are also available color options.
Dodge made the announcement of the Dodge Durango SRT in February 2017, and only a few months after its debut, the new model was named to WardsAuto’s 10 Best User Experience List. Equipped with a 475-horsepower 6.4-liter SRT HEMI V8 engine, the Durango SRT is the most powerful and capable three-row SUV and it has a maximum towing capacity of 8,600 pounds.
Also new for the 2018 model year is a standard 7-inch touchscreen, Uconnect 4.0 and a rearview backup camera to all Durango trims. The Durango SXT, GT and Citadel all have new and improved interior features ranging from leather to suede and two colors are available on the lineup, B5 Blue and In Violet Metallic.
Dodge Grand Caravan
Dodge has been perfecting the Dodge Grand Caravan for more than 30 years, so there weren’t many changes made to the model for the 2018 model year. For 2018, all Grand Caravan models are equipped with the award-winning 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine as well as a backup camera and touchscreen.
Still known as the most affordable three-row crossover, the 2018 Dodge Journey is available in four trims, the Journey SE, SXT, Crossroad and GT. In 2018 all Journey models will come standard with three-row seating and the Journey Crossroad is available with “Black Noise” 19-inch aluminum rims.
