AutoGuide Now For the Week of July 21

Here’s your chance to take a look at the exciting new cars we’re testing this week including the muscle car everyone is talking about: the 707-hp Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Read about the other cars populating the AutoGuide garage right here.

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT HellcatMike Schlee, Road Test Editor: “This week I am off to Portland to see what happens when 707 HP and 650 lb-ft of torque are shoved into a modern day muscle car. That’s right, I am going to drive the insane 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat.” We hope no one here is too attached to rubber, because there’s going to be quite a few sets of rear tires being sacrificed to test this muscle car from Dodge. Follow Mike on Twitter and tweet him your questions about this absolutely powerful Challenger.

2015-VW-Touareg-Front 2014 Volkswagen Touareg TDILuke Vandezande, Managing Editor: “Here’s something I didn’t know until moments before writing this: the Touareg are an indigenous people living primarily in the Saharan interior of North Africa. Oh and as you probably know, the name can also refer to Volkswagen’s bigger crossover. This week I’ll be driving the diesel model and stacking it up against the oil-burning Jeep Grand Cherokee.” Follow Luke on Twitter to get the score on this diesel face-off and tweet him if you want to learn more about this VW.

2014-jeep-grand-cherokee 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDieselSami Haj-Asssaad, Features Editor: “Is the most fuel efficient family crossover, one equipped with a diesel engine? That’s the question we’ll be answering as I test out the Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel and put it through its paces against the Volkswagen Touareg TDI. As the engine in the Grand Cherokee is shared with the one in Steve’s Ram pickup, it’ll also be interesting to see if the Jeep has been toned down to provide an additional feeling of refinement.” Follow Sami on Twitter to get the inside scoop on this comparison, and be sure to tweet him to see what he thinks of this tough diesel crossover.

2014-Ram-1500-diesel-grille 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDieselStephen Elmer, News Editor: “Pickup truck enthusiasts have been clamoring for a diesel-powered half-ton for some time, and Ram is the first to deliver. I’ll be in the 3.0-liter Ram EcoDiesel for a week to see how it stands up to its gasoline competitors. Spoiler alert: it’s a good truck. But is it good enough to justify the price premium? I’ll find out.” Get all your trucking info from Steve by following him on Twitter and reach out to him for updates on this Ram 1500 EcoDiesel.

audi-sq5 2014 Audi SQ5Craig Cole, Associate Editor: “Wait, what… another Audi?! This can’t be possible, but for the third consecutive week I’m in yet another vehicle graced with the four-ring logo. The SQ5 is a pretty bad a** luxury crossover. It sports a 354-hp supercharged V6 engine and a sport-tuned chassis. It’s like an S4 sedan but with an elevated ride height and more interior space.” A sporty crossover with tons of power, the SQ5 is sure to entertain, so follow Craig on Twitter to see all his updates or tweet at him to get his thoughts on this awesome ride.
