Dodge Roadkill Nights Presented by MotorTrend is Back and Better Than Ever
Believe it or not, Dodge is amping up its horsepower before completing its transition to EVs. The automaker announced it’ll be launching a multi-day Dodge Speed Week event from August 12-20, 2022. Not only will this week pack enough Dodge news to satiate enthusiasts for the coming months, the brand is also expected to lay out the future of Dodge. Rumor has it Dodge will be introducing three new hybrid or full-on electric vehicles during its Dodge Speed Week.
“There’s no better place to unveil a new performance direction for the Dodge brand than right on Woodward Avenue in metro Detroit, with tens of thousands of our closest fans and friends. We introduced our two-year Never Lift road map last year at Roadkill Nights, and this year the even will serve as the prelude to going wide open throttle on Never Lift. All I can say is the future of our brand will be on display during Dodge Speed Week, and we’re throwing open our garage doors so our fans can get a peek for themselves. It’s going to be an electric summer for Dodge,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand Chief Executive Officer– Stellantis.

Heed Dodge’s Warning
Street racing can not only have serious legal risks, it also implies a lot of safety risks. Dodge wants to remind enthusiasts that performance driving can only be enjoyed in a controlled and safe environment run by professionals who can conduct vehicle safety inspections, account for track safety, and evaluate drivers before they get behind the wheel.
