New Dodge Challenger officially revealed

New Dodge Challenger officially revealed


The not-so-prominent 2008 Chicago Auto Show is on its way, and their main exhibit seems to be the new Dodge Challenger SRT-8, dubbed as a limited-edition 2008 model. Official specs and performance figures have finally been revealed.


Dodge will offer the Challenger SRT-8 in three colours, namely orange, silver and black. Each two-door, rear-wheel-drive coupe will be produced with a numbered dash plaque, carbon fibre-like hood stripes and will be powered by SRT’s 6.1-litre HEMI V8 engine that boasts 425 hp and 569 Nm of torque, with an automatic gearbox.


Cabin features include GPS navigation, ‘Keyless Go’ entry, a MyGIGâ„¢ infotainment system and UConnect hands-free communication. Highlights include race-inspired leather seats with added bolstering and an exclusive orange accent stripe, exclusive stitched accents on the seats and steering wheel, four-bomb gauges, and an SRT-exclusive Reconfigurable Display (RCD) with Performances Pages that provide drivers instant feedback on 0–96 kph time, 96–0 kph braking, g-forces and ¼-mile time.


With an official U.S. pricetag of $37,995, plus dealer mark-ups, the all-new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 arrives in Dodge showrooms this spring.


The car can reportedly do 0-96 kph in 4.9 seconds and a 272 kph top speed. The quarter-mile is finished in 13.9 seconds. The 4-pot Brembo brakes, sized 14.2-inch rotors up front and 13.8-inch rotors in the back, can stop the car in as little distance as a Porsche Boxster. The 0-160-0 run, which involves accelerating to 160 kph and braking again to zero, is done in 16.5 seconds. On the handling front, a skidpad number of 0.9 g is respectable.


For information and prices about the GCC-spec 2009 model, read the Dodge Challenger buyer guide.

    Is awsome design, i dont like the interior so much(look a bit cheap plastic).They should use chrome and old looking leather.

  30. jr – that was a really ignorant comment. You said “this is america.. talk english boy!”

    Are you serious??? This is America??? No, sir, this is NOT America. You and I may be Americans (and I for one am PROUD to be an American). However, this is NOT America. This, my friend, is the World Wide Web, and personally I welcome all of my brothers and sisters from all around the world to come together here (and ANYWHERE on the web) and share in the things that we all love and are passionate about. Good Heavens, do we really need more division in the world when we really need more unity? We all seem to like the Dodge Challenger – in several different languages, no less. I say “Praise God!”, and “Welcome!” to my brothers and sisters from all around the world no matter what languages are spoken or typed onto this page. We may look different from one another and speak different languages, and observe different customs, but we are ALL humans – God’s children – and we really are more alike than most people think.

    Thanks for reading. Peace!
