Dodge offers upgrades that push power to 885 ponies in some models.

Dodge

The world may be going electric, but Dodge is still offering plenty of support to owners of its famed Hellcat muscle cars. Today, the automaker announced a program to provide factory-backed performance parts for SRT Hellcat cars. The components can be ordered and installed by one of Dodge's "Power Broker" dealerships.

Called Direct Connection, the service is Dodge's official source for performance parts and other components. Dodge offers two kits for Challenger SRT models: Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye cars can be upgraded to 885 horsepower and the standard Hellcat can be pushed to 750 ponies. In all, Direct Connection offers 14 kits for the Challenger and 13 race-ready kits. There are also four graphics packages for the Challenger Mopar Drag Park model.

Because of their connections with the company that designed and built the cars in the first place, factory-backed tuning and performance operations are usually top-notch. Dodge's program offers live technical support and an online catalog that allows users to mix and match performance parts using the site's "recipes." All parts that are installed or replaced by a certified Dodge dealer do not interfere with the cars' three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty or the five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.

If Dodge-approved performance parts get you excited, you don't have long left to wait. The kits will go on sale late in the first quarter of 2022. The Dodge Power Brokers dealer network will also start around that time.

BMW issues OTA update for iDrive 7

BMW owners with iDrive7 will see a wealth of new tech features with the update.

BMW

In-car technology is progressing quickly, to the point that the cars we drive today would be completely foreign to people even just a decade ago. Over-the-air updates allow automakers to add new features and refresh existing functionality, and BMW is taking advantage of that functionality to update its vehicles for 2022. Cars running iDrive 7 will receive an update that brings new functions and refines others.

New features include a warning feature that suppresses lane departure and steering interventions on roads without clearly marked lanes. A real-time traffic information system can now process data from congestion in turning lanes and automatically route the driver around the issue for faster transit and more accurate estimation of arrival time. The system now includes an advanced volume control function for Android smartphones that provides enhanced sound for streaming and podcasts. The driver profile recognition system has also been improved to recognize drivers when the key fob is in odd locations, such as in a purse in the back seat.

The M3 and M4 get enhancements to their interior engine audio systems, which pump engine sounds into the cabin. BMW says the new system now provides clearer audio confirmation of gear shifts and a refined startup sound. Changing the cars’ drive modes changes the sounds, and a quieter mode can be selected to reduce distraction.

Updated vehicles get built-in access to Spotify podcasts and Pandora radio, and BMW’s News app has been updated with better on-demand features and podcasts. The app filters news and other content for the user, providing a personalized experience. Finally, BMW’s Digital Key will be available for select Android phones.
