  1. What is VOYO? The World’s Most Advanced Connected Car Technology We have developed the world's most advanced, aftermarket connected car system. At the core of the VOYO platform is the ability to acquire and utilize the large amounts of complex data produced by modern cars. The VOYO controller is based on a specialized, high speed data logger that is typically used by auto companies in their development work. VOYO connects to the OBD-II port of your car, generally located underneath the dash. Any car built since 1996 has one, and most of VOYO’s Standard Features will be supported in a wide number of cars. For certain models/years of GM, Ford and Toyota, you will have the option to add our remote controlled Relays that increase VOYO's fuel savings and add unique security features. Additional makes/models are planned post Kickstarter. Depending on the vehicle, you may also have the option to upgrade to our Premium Pack services. See below for more details on VOYO hardware, Standard Features, Premium Pack services and supported vehicles. By the time your VOYO ships, you will be able to download the free VOYO phone App. It will provide you with a whole new digital experience and allow you to collect a wealth of information about your car as well as control its systems. The App will also guide you through the set up process and confirm that VOYO is correctly installed. The whole system is plug and play and is connected in under 2 minutes. No tools or automotive experience are required. Click here for VOYO's Kickstarted page.

  11. Dodge Hits the Mark With the All-new 2013 Dodge Dart Compact Car Dodge Dart Blends Alfa Romeo DNA and Dodge’s Passion for Performance, Resulting in a Groundbreaking Car with the Ultimate Blend of Power, Fuel Economy, Handling and Style The Dodge brand is back in the U.S. compact sedan segment – in a big way – as the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart will make its world debut at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Mich., on Jan. 9, 2012 Built on a world-class architecture, Dodge Dart offers three technologically advanced, fuel-efficient and powerful engines, including the 1.4L MultiAir® Turbo Dodge delivers exceptional craftsmanship with class-leading technology and style Dodge Dart Forum - Dodge redefines performance in the compact car segment with an all-new, state-of-the-art four-door sedan delivering class-leading aerodynamics – the 2013 Dodge Dart. With Alfa Romeo DNA and Dodge’s passion for performance at its core, the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart is a thoroughly modern vehicle that’s fuel-efficient, beautifully designed and crafted, agile and brings fun back to driving in the segment. Similar to the Dodge Dart of the late 1960s, the 2013 Dart offers a special blend of style, performance and innovation. The Dodge brand leveraged its nearly 100-year history of passion for building high-quality, innovative vehicles that stand apart in performance and style, as well as from its partner Fiat’s global compact car expertise, to develop the all-new Dodge Dart. ALFA ROMEO DNA The all-new Dart is the first Chrysler Group vehicle based upon a Fiat architecture – adapted from the award-winning Alfa Romeo Giulietta. The Giulietta is renowned for satisfying the most demanding customers in terms of road-holding, agility and safety, with exceptional driving dynamics. The Dart leverages all of these attributes within a lengthened and widened platform delivering segment-leading levels of interior roominess. The all-new Compact U.S. Wide (CUSW) architecture underpinning the Dart is a state-of-the-art architecture with an industry-leading 68 percent of the body composed of high-strength steel, resulting in a very strong and rigid structure. Combined with responsive steering, four-wheel independent suspension, and available 18-inch wheels, the Dart brings fun back to driving in the compact car segment. UNMISTAKABLE STYLE The all-new 2013 Dart marks the Dodge brand’s re-entry into the compact sedan segment, hitting the bulls-eye with a modern, unmistakable Dodge design that builds upon its performance heritage while evoking emotion, efficiency and fluidity of movement. Eye-catching exterior proportions are set off from every angle by dynamic lines and curves, along with advanced technology, to deliver class-leading aerodynamic performance. The personality-packed front view is instantly recognizable as an all-new Dodge with its tailored split-crosshair grille, projector headlamps and fog lamps and accentuated fenders. Signature Dodge full-width LED ‘racetrack’ tail lamps and class-exclusive integrated dual exhaust – both inspired by Dodge Charger – accentuate the athletic and muscular stance of this dynamic and passionate new design. THREE SOPHISTICATED, FUEL-EFFICIENT & POWERFUL ENGINES The 2013 Dodge Dart will be powered by three fuel-efficient, powerful, state-of-the-art four-cylinder engines that add to Dart’s fun-to-drive quotient. Drivers can select from a new Tigershark 16-valve 2.0-liter engine, a 16-valve 1.4-liter MultiAir Intercooled Turbo engine, and a new Tigershark 16-valve 2.4-liter MultiAir four cylinder engine. These three engines, combined with three transmission choices, combine to redefine performance by providing the most diverse powertrain lineup in its class. MultiAir technology delivers optimum combustion at any speed under all driving conditions by allowing direct and dynamic control of air intake and combustion. The result is up to a 15 percent increase in low engine rpm torque, a 7.5 percent improvement in fuel efficiency and a 10 percent reduction in C02 emissions. THE ALL-NEW DART – BUILT IN AMERICA The all-new Dodge Dart will be made in America at Chrysler Group’s Belvidere Assembly Plant in Belvidere, Ill. The Company is in the process of investing $600 million dollars to support the production of future products, including the 2013 Dodge Dart. The investment includes the construction of a 638,000-square-foot body shop, as well as the installation of new machinery, tooling and material handling equipment. Work on the expansion began in the summer of 2010 and will be completed this year. The all-new Dodge Dart has been engineered with great levels of refinement, craftsmanship and engaging driving dynamics. Consumers can follow for additional photos and more information about the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart.

  13. With 2011 Journey, Dodge polishes crossover to a ferocious sheen Dodge Journey Forum - he 2011 Dodge Journey has sipped down some big cat hemoglobin and come out a vastly improved crossover. It's got a predator's confidence that measures up the competition at the local watering hole before devouring them. Chomp. The first bite out of the previous Journey is the Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine. This new Journey engine roars with 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque matched to a smooth six-speed automatic transmission. A 2.4-liter, 173-horsepower base engine is available on the five-passenger Express model, but the remaining four trim levels all come with the V-6. The two additional cylinders don't penalize drivers at the pump. The four-cylinder Express gets 19 mpg in city driving and 25 mpg on the highway, according to Environmental Protection Agency testing. The all-wheel drive V-6 Journey hits 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The money under a couch cushion will cover the mileage difference. READ MORE HERE

NEW 2011 DODGE CHALLENGER R/T — ICONIC STYLING NOW WITH UPGRADED PERFORMANCE HARDWARE FOR MAXIMUM PRECISION AND GRIP The new 2011 Dodge Challenger R/T delivers more of what muscle-car enthusiasts want - improved handling with its new second-generation chassis architecture, the legendary HEMI® V-8 engine with transmission refinements and even more athletic styling — all executed with quality and precision.

A more aggressive front- and rear-camber geometry improve, the all-new Dodge Challenger R/T’s road-holding capabilities. Set at -1.0 degrees in the front and -1.75 degrees in the rear, Dodge Challenger is set up for high-speed cornering with its tires leaning inboard at the top relative to the body. New larger diameter front- and rear-stabilizer bars keep the chassis nimble during cornering and make body lean a thing of the past.

When paired with the newly refined Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission’s Track Pak, the 2011 Dodge Challenger R/T delivers smoother shifts, while delivering even more power through unique performance-tuned dual exhaust and under-floor mufflers with low-restriction bottle resonators. The result is 376 track-tearing horsepower that can accelerate the performance coupe from 0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds and a sinister exhaust growl for the cars left in its rear-view mirror. The all-new 2011 Dodge Challenger R/T’s 5.7-liter HEMI engine with five-speed automatic transmission produces 372 horsepower (277 kW), 400 lb.-ft. of torque (542 N•m) and 25 highway mpg, plus its Fuel Saver Technology seamlessly transitions to high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and V-8 mode when more power is in demand. This optimizes fuel economy when full V-8 power is not required, without sacrificing vehicle performance or capability. To match its unmistakable muscle-car styling, upgraded powertrain and improved handling capabilities, the new 2011 Dodge Challenger R/T features performance-driven exterior enhancements. At the front of the new Dodge Challenger’s wide stance is a restyled trapezoidal front air dam with a larger opening to cool the legendary HEMI V-8 engine. Providing additional downforce is a larger “duck bill” front spoiler in black to match the coupe’s lower sill. The interior equipment in the new 2011 Dodge Challenger R/T is significantly upgraded to give customers added style, convenience, value and best-in-class accommodations. Transmitting Challenger’s new precision steering and feel of the road is an all-new leather-wrapped thick-rimmed three-spoke Dodge steering wheel for better performance feel and grip.

With class-exclusive seating for five, coupled with best-in-class cargo space (16.2 cu. ft.), the new 2011 Dodge Challenger is the segments best day-to-day pony-car choice, offering maximum comfort and functionality. The U.S. MSRP for the 2011 Dodge Challenger R/T is $29,670 (excluding an $825 destination charge). Built at the Brampton Assembly plant in Brampton, Ont.

  15. 2011 Dodge Journey Review: Motor Trend Dodge Journey Forum - While memorable driving experiences and technological wizardry aren't exactly the Journey's strong suits, John and Jane could care less. What's more important is getting little Doe to their play date safely and easily, and the Journey is a viable option if they find the minivan too lame and larger SUVs too intimidating. The Journey has been criticized for a lack of refinement in the past, and Dodge has made a solid effort to address the crossover's shortcomings with the 2011 model. Not much has changed on the outside, with the Journey retaining much of its original shape while infusing subtle, modern revisions to the front and rear ends for the new decade. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 has been a welcome addition to the Chrysler/Dodge lineup, and not surprisingly, it finds its way under the Journey's hood as well. READ MORE HERE
