The most popular Mopar news for 2017

by David Zatz on

What were the most popular Allpar stories for 2017?

First, and we attribute this at least partly to the name, was the Hellcrate engine — 707 horsepower for classic cars. This was an exciting story to run, and we have to thank the Mopar people for sending it our way ahead of time.

Next, surprisingly, was a story on the colors of the Dodge Demon. This was a bit of a surprise because it actually was more popular than the launch of the Demon itself, or the price of the Demon, for that matter.

Next down the list, we have the Challenger Hellcat Widebody launch. Other Hellcat stories included showing the “Dodge Challenger Demon” pics on Instagram (at #7), the Dodge Angel rumor (#9), and a story (#10) on buyers of burned Demons getting a personal call from the head of Dodge. The Demon stories were  all written by Patrick Rall.

The sixth most popular story was about Ram leaving the “big rig” look (first seen in 1994) behind, and a peek inside the 2019 Ram 1500.

What about the most-read Allpar stories of all time? Those honors go to “a new 2011 Dodge Charger rendering” and “2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee changes.” We’re not quite sure why. The Hellcrate story comes in at #5 on the all-time list.
