Driving the Dodge Challenger, Charger and Viper at the Bondurant SRT Experience

Earlier this week I got to check something off of my bucket list after attending the new SRT Experience at Bondurant Racing School, where I spent the day pushing the Hellcat Challenger, the Hellcat Charger, the Viper TA2.0 and a handful of other high performance Dodge products to their limits – all under the watchful eye of the school’s world renown race instructors.

Earlier this year we brought you the news that the legendary Bondurant Racing School in Arizona was switching from the Chevrolet Corvette and Chevrolet Camaro to the Dodge Viper, the Dodge Challenger and the Dodge Charger – with the all three cars being featured in multiple trimlines. The fleet of new high performance Dodge products at Bondurant includes the Challenger SRT 392, the Challenger SRT Hellcat, the Charger SRT 392, the Charger Scat Pack, the Charger SRT Hellcat, the Viper TA2.0 and the new Viper ACR.

These cars are used for a variety of the racing programs at the Bondurant Racing School, but those folks who want to experience a collection of the new high performance Dodge vehicles are opt for the new SRT Experience program. Everyone who buys a new Dodge SRT product gets a free pass to this 1-day track event in Arizona and if a new owner wants to bring someone along – or if you want to attend the SRT Experience at Bondurant without buying a new car – this program has an MSRP of $699.

2016 Ram 1500 HFE EcoDiesel fuel-economy review: 24-mpg full-size pickup truck

It may not look like it, but the Ram full-size pickup you see here may be one of the more interesting new trucks on the road today.

You might view it as this decade’s version of the Camaros, Mustangs, and Mopars that emerged in earlier days from back-corner “skunkworks” engineering groups at each Detroit automaker. How so, you ask?

This Ram isn’t the run-of-the-mill SLT model that you’ll see in the parking lots at every ranch supply store (or high-end shopping mall) in America’s heartland.

It’s a Ram 1500 HFE.

That’s HFE for High Fuel Efficiency.

The folks at Ram Trucks put a lot of work into thinking outside the box to create a full-size pickup that offers the fuel economy of a V-6 midsize sedan.

And as we found, its EPA ratings of 24 mpg combined (21 mpg city, 29 mpg highway) actually underrate its fuel efficiency at highway speeds.
