No 2015 Super Bee

Allpar member ?redriderbob? wrote that he spoke with Tim Kuniskis at the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat launch; Mr. Kiniskis, who heads Dodge, said that the SRT brand structure is too confusing with SRT Core models, Super Bees, special edition packages on Charger, and such; it is difficult for the customer to know what kind of models they are looking at, and it is hard for sales staff at dealerships to learn the chaos.According to the member, the Super Bee?s last year will be 2014, and he is ?aligning the Charger and Challenger options to be identical.?

Flood Safety Tips

Floods can occur anywhere, with floodwaters rising gradually or flash floods striking suddenly. Flash floods are the number one weather-related killer in the United States ? most flood fatalities happen because people try to drive through deadly waters rather than avoid them.

Many of these events feature astronomy presentations, as well as ? you guessed it ? s?mores. A few participating parks also will offer free movies to complement this natural light show…

Nissan Frontier Prototype Powered by Cummins Diesel

When Nissan dropped the Frontier Diesel Runner Concept with a 2.8-liter Cummins diesel four-cylinder under its transparent hood at the 2014 Chicago auto show, it was like a bomb had exploded at McCormick Place. A diesel engine in a compact pickup! (Or something like that, given the Windy City show?s sleepy reputation.) Where have you been all of our lives? Besides every other country, of course.

Indeed, as with driver-side sliding doors on minivans and express-open windows, a diesel-powered compact seemed (and still seems) like a why-haven?t-we-had-this-all-along kind of idea. After all, with prodigious torque and considerable…

First look: 2015 Nissan Murano keeps concept car lines

Third-gen crossover will have 20 percent better mpg, tuned CVT, lower drag

When Nissan introduced the production version of the third-generation Murano at the New York auto show this year, the crowds were somewhere between surprised and shocked that the undulatory exterior and wacky roof pillars of the concept hadn?t been dulled down in production trim the way most concepts are. The wavy forms down the side and the sloping roof were still there, no doubt terrifying the metal stamping machines at the beast?s Canton, Miss. production plant.

But that exterior contributes as much to the vehicle?s…

2014 Nissan Versa Note named one of the "10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000" ...

- 2014 model earns selection for fun-to-drive and fun-to-own characteristics -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. ? After a record-breaking sales month* in June, the 2014 Nissan Versa Note is now one of the coolest cars on the block. Recently, Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com named the Versa Note to its "10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000" list. The recognition follows news that Nissan Versa sales increased a record-high 30.5 percent in May.

To compile the annual list, Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com editors used two "critical" criteria ? fun-to-drive and fun-to-own ? to determine a vehicle's "cool factor." Additionally, vehicles must be…

The full Dodge Challenger line, on the road and track: SXT to Hellcat

Largely overlooked as the media and public focus on the 707-horespower Hellcat Challenger is the standard 392 car, still a highly respectable package with a great deal of power. This was the first of the 2015 Dodge Challengers I took out on a road course in Portland, with a good mix of curves, straights, streets, and freeways.

With Track mode, at first it felt too heavy, but after driving with it for a while, I decided that I would probably end up using that daily. It was firm, but not too firm. If I lived in a pothole prone area…

2014 Nissan Juke Nismo RS

As a point of love-it or hate-it styling, the Nissan Juke is king. As a weird, samurai-bullfrog-looking compact crossover with handling chops and a gutsy powertrain, it also has one of the bravest inclusions of a manual transmission in recent memory. It's funky, unmistakable, polarizing and actually pretty neat. Okay, so even though the back seats have a surprising amount of legroom, it's like sitting in a cave, and the sightlines out the back are challenging ? every frog needs a few warts. But those matter less when the amphibian gets a big wet kiss from the Nismo princess…
