You never knew you needed a Dodge Hellcat Reindeer onesie in your life until now

Your engine can roar to life, but when the fire is going and you're snuggled up on the couch with your loved one watching Netflix and sipping cocoa, there's only one outfit you should be wearing. Clearly it's the new Dodge Hellcat reindeer onesie, which has just gone on sale at Dodge's online lifestyle shop.

The 100-percent polyester fleece onesie has a bright red hue that is reminiscent of the red in the Dodge logo. It zips up in the front (naturally) and features a crew neck. It comes in sizes small through 3XL, proving it could be a good fit for most anyone, not unlike a Dodge Charger or Challenger.

Most importantly, the Dodge Hellcat Reindeer is embroidered on the right chest of the garment in contrasting white stitching. The Dodge word logo and rhombus are on the left in white and gray. The Dodge rhombus is also on the left leg in white.

Like Dodge customers, the garment is considered "one of a kind" according to the website.

If the $69.95 price tag of the onesie is too much of a stretch for your budget, consider the equally as handsome dark gray Hellcat Redeye Reindeer t-shirt which is just $17.95 (plus $5.95 shipping and handling - rush delivery is available for considerably more).

Among the other holiday gifts the automaker is touting are a 1320 Angry Bee ornament, "Ugly" holiday sweater, and a Demon whiskey barrel and stand.

Other FCA brands have holiday shops as well. Alfa Romeo's features finer items like a leather duffle bag and vanilla latte candle (with a leather wrap, natch) among the driving gloves and blanket choices.

Fiat offers a Fiat 500 children's pop up tent for just $30.95.

Jeep's gifts are among the coolest with two Hallmark ornaments to choose from: a 1982 CJ-8 Scrambler and a Wrangler Rubicon R/C Off-Road 1:16. There are Gladiator socks for the enthusiast and a drone and a pedal go-kart for the Jeep fan that just must have branded merchandise.

Ram has Stanley drinkware for sale, a Buck "55" lockback knife with the Ram logo featured on its blade, and a canvas and leather apron.

Ford Mustang continues sales dominance

Ford has good reason to be proud of the Mustang. Now almost 60 years on from its introduction, Ford continues innovating with new versions and performance upgrades. It's all good news for buyers, as it's hard to find a "bad" Mustang in Ford's current catalog. The efforts have paid off, too, as the automaker just announced that the Mustang outsold its competition for the seventh year in a row.

The Mustang continued outselling the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger, and did so without help from the Shelby GT350, which was discontinued. The Mustang Mach 1, with its 5.0-liter V8, led the charge, but Ford notes the performance of its most powerful Mustang, the Shelby GT500.

Ford says Americans are the most prolific Mustang buyers, representing 76 percent of the car's worldwide sales. Mustang sales in New Zealand grew 54 percent and Brazil saw sales climb 37.3 percent, so the car is a global effort for Ford. The automaker notes that retail orders, where a customer places an order for a car instead of shopping for one off the lot, almost doubled last year.

The 2022 Mustang may mark the last year of the car's current generation. Spy photographers have caught next-generation cars testing in the wild, and the current-gen cars have been on sale since 2015. Ford also expanded the Mustang name in 2021 with the addition of the new electric Mustang Mach-E, which was met with huge demand and several awards from around the auto industry.

The 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine delivers big power numbers.

Stellantis

The old saying that there's "no replacement for displacement" isn't quite as accurate as it once was. Turbochargers and the latest engine designs have made it possible to extract major power from smaller, more efficient power plants. Stellantis' latest announcement proves this point, as its new Hurricane inline-six-cylinder engine will generate big power numbers from a relatively modest 3.0 liters and two turbos.

Stellantis says two variants will be available. The standard output version produces more than 400 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, while a high output variant delivers more than 500 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. The twin-turbo inline-six delivers that power with up to 15 percent better fuel efficiency.

The new engine comes as Stellantis works to position itself for an electrified future. The automaker stated a goal of 50 percent a 50 percent battery electric vehicle mix by 2030, but notes that gas engines will still play a major role in its vehicle line for years to come. "The Hurricane twin-turbo is a no-compromise engine that delivers better fuel economy and an important reduction in greenhouse gases without asking our customers to give up performance," said Micky Bly, Stellantis head of propulsion systems.

At this point, it's unclear which vehicles will get the new engine, but Stellantis' brands are packed with opportunities. Dodge, whose Hellcat-powered muscle cars could be a good candidate, and then there's Jeep, with a line of off-road-ready SUVs that could greatly benefit from such an engine. The Hurricane's projected high output of 500 horsepower puts it behind the Hellcat engines power output, but it's still strong enough to make a seriously quick vehicle.
