Well, there’s at least one less Dodge Challenger SRT Demon in the world. That’s one out of the 3,300 that were built. Fair warning, this video is a little bit cringe-worthy. If you’re like us, you’ll envision this happening to your very own Demon. The cause is unknown, but will most likely be blamed on a mechanical failure. The event happened days ago at the Milan Dragway near Ann Arbor, Michigan. Click and watch the video below to see the Dodge Demon return to the fiery pits of Hell.
For Minnesota native Adam Martin, it all started with a 1968 Camaro. Martin quickly learned the mechanic trade and vowed to make his ride something special. Not only did this Camaro change Martin’s life, it changed his life path. See where this Chevy took then 16-year old Martin and what he and his ride are made of today. Enjoy.
Step aside Prius, there’s another fuel efficient ride in town. The Chevrolet Cruze Diesel sedan has been officially certified by the US Environmental Protection Agency (ETA) at 52 miles per gallon on the highway, when packing a six-speed manual transmission. To be overly thorough, the hatchback can theoretically go more than 700 miles on a full tank of diesel. That’s New York to Detroit, with miles to spare.
The manual Cruze beats the Prius by 2 mpg in EPA highway rating. But, the Prius beats the Cruzes 37 mpg out with its 52 mpg in the combined cycle.
Rumors circled last fall that the Cruze Diesel may get 50 miles per gallon on the highway. So this news is even sweeter than we expected. This seems fine and great, but the sales … not so much. Sales plummeted late last year as GM prepared is 2017 version. It also didn’t help that Chevy introduced the all-electric Bolt.
The Cruze is equipped with a 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine and makes 137 horsepower with 240 lb-ft of torque. The price starts at $24,670, so we’re thinking this ride is a cheap risk for the reward.
By now you know all about the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette, the most anticipated new model launch in recent memory. The unveiling happened in Orange County, California and the coverage hasn’t stopped since.
Under the hood is a 6.2-liter V8 dubbed the LT2. The LT2 pumps out 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. To give you some perspective, that is 40 more hp and 10 more lb-ft than the C7. The power is sent through an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox and with the Z51 Package installed, the car does 0-62 in less than three seconds. Woah. But the question remains, how exactly did Chevrolet make the C8 so much faster than its predecessor? Click the video below and Jason Fenske from Engineering Explained will walk you through it. Enjoy.
Thanks to our friends over at Top Gear, we have quite the match up for you today. Matt LeBlanc takes the Demon for a drive, and you can imagine how that goes, considering it was born to tear up a drag strip. But how will it perform against a Lamborghini Aventador? Well, you’ll have to watch the video below to find out. Enjoy.
