It’s a tale of two Dodges in the automaker’s showrooms this year. Dodge continues to invest in its muscular Charger sedan and Challenger coupe while letting its family haulers wither on the vine.

Somewhere between the two ends of the spectrum sits the brand’s Durango SUV, which adds a lot more power to become the 475-horsepower Durango SRT.

A new Dodge crossover is rumored, but when it will arrive to replace the dated Grand Caravan and Journey is anyone’s guess.

Until then, we’ll have to be satisfied with a Dodge Challenger for just about any occasion (including drag-racing) and a few worthwhile updates to the Charger four-door.

Oh, and the Dodge Viper has finally bitten the dust—perhaps for good this time. Here’s to you, V-10-powered beast!
