(Skip to details on the: SRT8 392)

New for 2013
The Rallye Redline model joins the Challenger lineup for 2013. It features a body-length red stripe, deck lid spoiler, 20-inch black chrome wheels with performance tires, premium Nappa leather upholstery, heated front seats, a performance suspension, a 305-hp V-6 engine, a performance steering setup, larger brake discs and a 3.06:1 rear-axle ratio.

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

  • Standard body-colored door handles, front and rear bumpers, and mirrors
  • Standard 18-inch aluminum wheels; 20-inch rims optional
  • Standard chrome exhaust tips
  • Optional fog lights
  • Optional sunroof
  • Optional high-intensity-discharge 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
  • 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 MP3 jack
  • Optional touch-screen stereo with 30-gigabyte hard drive
  • Optional navigation system

Under the Hood
The Challenger's standard engine is a 3.6-liter V-6 that teams with a five-speed automatic transmission. The R/T has a 5.7-liter V-8 that features cylinder deactivation on versions with the five-speed automatic. The technology allows the car to operate on four cylinders when less power is needed to save fuel. A six-speed manual is also available for the R/T. Mechanical features include:

  • 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 375 hp and 410 pounds-feet of torque with the manual
  • Both engines use regular gas
  • Standard all-disc brakes

Standard safety features include:

  • Side curtain airbags for front and rear occupants
  • Front-seat side-impact airbags
  • Electronic stability system
  • Antilock brakes
  • Active front head restraints

SRT8 392
The performance-oriented SRT8 392 is powered by a 470-hp, 6.4-liter V-8, and the coupe comes with a new three-mode adaptive suspension system for 2013. Launch control is also now standard. Dodge says the SRT8 392 can go from zero to 60 mph in the high-4-second range and run the quarter-mile in the mid-12-second range. Other features include:

  • Six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission
  • Performance-tuned dual exhaust system
  • 20-inch aluminum wheels
  • Brembo-brand brakes
  • Limited-slip differential
  • Uconnect hands-free phone system
