(Skip to details on the: SRT8 392)

New for 2011
The Challenger gets a 305-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 as its new base engine, and the performance-oriented SRT8 392 is powered by a new 470-hp, 6.4-liter V-8. New standard equipment for 2011 includes Keyless Go remote start, automatic air conditioning, side-impact airbags and 18-inch aluminum wheels.

Unlike the Charger sedan, which borrows primarily a name from the muscle-car era, the Challenger was designed after the 1970 model, and it is unmistakably the Challenger from any angle. It has a broad grille and rear-end treatments. Other exterior features include:

  • Standard body-colored handles, front and rear bumpers, and mirrors
  • Standard 18-inch aluminum wheels; 20-inch rims optional
  • Standard chrome exhaust tips
  • Optional performance exhaust system
  • Optional fog lights
  • Optional sunroof
  • Optional xenon headlights

The Challenger continues its retro-themed looks on the inside with its gauge cluster and black headliner. In manual-transmission cars, the shifter features a unique pistol-grip design. Other interior features include:

  • Standard cloth upholstery; optional leather
  • Standard power-adjustable driver's seat; heated front seats optional
  • New leather-wrapped steering wheel for 2011
  • Standard automatic air conditioning
  • Standard cruise control
  • Standard remote start on automatic-transmission cars
  • Standard 60/40-split folding rear bench with armrest and two cupholders
  • Standard CD stereo with auxiliary input jack
  • Optional touch-screen audio system with 30-gigabyte hard drive
  • Optional navigation system
  • Optional iPod connectivity

Under the Hood
The base Challenger SE gets a new 305-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that teams with a five-speed automatic transmission. The R/T has a 5.7-liter V-8 that features cylinder deactivation on automatic-equipped models. The technology allows the car to operate on four cylinders when less power is needed to save fuel. A six-speed manual is available for the R/T.

  • Standard 305-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 with 268 pounds-feet of torque
  • Optional 5.7-liter V-8 makes 372 hp and 400 pounds-feet of torque with the automatic transmission and 376 hp and 410 pounds-feet of torque with the manual
  • Both engines can use regular gas
  • Standard all-disc brakes

Safety features include:

The SRT8 392 is a high-performance version of the Challenger, and it gets a new, more powerful V-8 engine for 2011. It's also available in limited-run Inaugural Edition form. Dodge is building 1,492 Inaugural Editions that feature special exterior and interior styling cues like 392 badges, quad exhaust tips, 20-inch wheels and white-and-blue leather upholstery.
