This highly avoidable crash took place last weekend in Madison, Wisconsin, where the driver of a black Dodge Charger engaged in an aggressive overtaking maneuver, colliding with a stationary tow truck and causing significant damage to his car. The footage was captured via dashcam by somebody who eventually pulled over to help, only to find that the Charger driver was allegedly nowhere to be found. In fact, here’s what happened according to the cammer: “I was heading home when I noticed a car driving erratically. I stayed behind him for a little while then had an opportunity to move away from him. As I was attempting to move away from him, he decided to switch lanes once again and crashed into the tow truck.” “As his car was coming to a stop, I witnessed him going from the driver seat to the backseat. I parked my car and ran over to his car to check on people in the car. Another lady came over as well to help and asked where the driver was. The two men, now in … [Read more...] about Aggressive Dodge Charger Driver Slams Into Stationary Tow Truck

When the first LX-platform Chryslers appeared in late 2004, buyers who had long grown wary of the automaker’s products took solace in the fact that the new 300 and Dodge Charger/Magnum borrowed so many components from bedmate Mercedes-Benz. While not a direct carryover, the front and rear suspension, floorpan, and five-speed automatic transmission (among other items) all boasted German heritage. DaimlerChrysler found itself with a hit on its hands. Thirteen years later, after many updates and styling refreshes, LX cars still trundle off Fiat Chrysler’s Brampton, Ontario assembly line and into the waiting arms of North American traditionalists. It was long expected that, after FCA hit snooze on a planned 2019 platform swap, we’d see new underpinnings for the old rear-drivers by 2021. Hold your horses, says CEO Sergio Marchionne. The executive, who revealed the company’s new five-year plan on Friday (sans Chrysler, Dodge, and Fiat), suggests the future Dodge … [Read more...] about 2021 Dodge Charger and Challenger: Out With the New, In With the Old (Platform)?
