Tesla Model 3 Will Receive The Air Suspension System In 6 Months

Ever since the release of the Tesla Model 3, everyone’s eyes turned to boy wonder Elon Musk, the chief architect of this range of electric cars. But those who want to get their hands on the Model 3 have to wait for a while to get the best of both worlds.

Right now, Tesla Model 3 only has a few options such as colors, wheels, and the choice between a short- and long-range variant. Such a short list for a very popular vehicle, right? If you want another color than black, you will have to shell out extra for that.

The Model 3 is now in production with at least 20,000 units to be made available each month. Musk said that while this is happening, the “Smart Air Suspension” is continually being tested and will be fitted in the affordable electric car.

On Twitter, he answered a question about the release of the Smart Air Suspension. He told Twitter user Ryan McCaffrey (@DMC_R) that the feature will be made available on the Model 3 “in about six months or so.” Musk revealed that it will also come with a dual motor configuration option.

The Tesla Model 3 configurator right now has the dual-motor, all-wheel drive variant scheduled to arrive in the spring of 2018. This works well with Musk’s six-month timetable. He added that Tesla fans can also expect a performance version of the Model 3 sometime in 2018.

The Smart Air Suspension can raise or lower the car after it is enabled to learn and adapt to roadways. With the help of the onboard GPS, a road detail log is available. This allows the car to safely creep into unlevel driveways or places that require lower or higher ride heights.

The Smart Air Suspension option became so popular on the Model S and the Model X that it has become standard on later Tesla models. Before it became part of the package, you will have to shell out $3,000 for the option.

The options for the Model 3 won’t be available until a few more months. Other options will become active in about a year or so.

 

3 Things You Have To Know About The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

2018 dodge challenger srt (1)

The Dodge Challenger, which nameplate was revived in 2008 after a 25-year hiatus, is the oldest muscle car available in the United States. With underpinnings from W211-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class (2002-2009), the Challenger was able to survive competing with the modern Mustang and Camaro.

Though the Challenger is basically a dated race car, it’s still one of the favorites of most car enthusiasts. This coming 2018, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will bring the brand to a whole new level.

Here are the top 3 features of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon based on a report:

1. Exterior

If you saw the Hellcat, then you’ll have a good idea what’s to come with the Challenger SRT Demon. It’s basically a Hellcat in “steroids.” The most notable features are the revised splitter and the wider and taller hood scoop. On the sides, the body is wider and the fender flares hide fatter tires and improve the car’s aggressive stance. The Demon head badges can be found on the front fenders.

There are 14 exterior colors available for the Dodge such as B5 Blue, Billet Silver, Destroyer Grey, F8 Green, Go Mango, Granite Crystal, Indigo Blue, Maximum Steel, Octane Red, Pitch Black, Plum Crazy, TorRed, White Knuckle, and Yellow Jacket. Optionally, you can have a Satin Black engine hood or the Satin Black hood, roof, and decklid package.

2. Interior

When it comes to the interior of the car, you will remember the 2015 Challenger. There is not much to talk about it, except you’ll find the Demon head logos on the seat backs, the Alcantara steering wheel, the bespoke TFT display, the white-faced gauges in the instrument cluster, and the carbon-fiber badge with “Demon” script.

The Demon comes only with one seat, though you can turn it into a five-seater for a measly $1 each.

3. Drivetrain

The Demon is currently being powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine just like the Hellcat. The engine now has a larger, 2.7-liter supercharger, as well as increased boost pressure, a higher rpm limit, and a larger induction air box.

The total output is 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque. That’s a 133-horsepower increase from the one found in the Hellcat.

Charging from 0 to 30 mph takes just one second, and to reach the 60-mph mark, you only need 2.3 seconds. This makes the Demon quicker than supercars like the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1, and Porsche 918 Spyder.
