2012 Dodge Charger SRT8

2012 Dodge Charger SRT8

Posted on OCTOBER 6, 2011 by RLD- We’ll be the first to admit that our new Charger SRT8 would never be mistaken for a “Gentleman’s Hot Rod,” despite the fact it has virtually the same creature comforts as its preppy cousin: the Chrysler 300C SRT8. Between these two high-performance sedans, our 2012 Charger SRT8 is more “in your face” thanks to its aggressive styling, while the 300C SRT8 blends in better at the country club.

With a 470 horsepower 6.4L HEMI® under its sculpted hood along with unique front and rear fascia, the Charger SRT8 certainly gets noticed among the “go-fast” crowd. Behind the wheel of this ride, you might get some wide-eyed glances of admiration and awe from passersby who’d probably give their birth right just for a 12 second blast down the drag strip.

Speaking of going down the track, the speed junkies at Edmunds Inside Line had some fun tearing it up in the Charger SRT8 along with a Challenger SRT8 392. We’d like to spread some horsepower love among all of you, too, so check out this video to see this beast in action. (Just make sure to check to the volume on your speakers!)

2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392-Green with Envy

If you’re not one of the fortunate few who are able to get a close-up look at the legendary Dodge Challenger when they are being made — don’t worry. National Geographic has you covered.

Earlier this month, National Geographic Channel kicked off its seven-stop Ultimate Factories Tour — with two of its stops taking a look at Dodge vehicles.

On Feb. 3, the series stopped at the Brampton, Ont., plant where the Dodge Challenger is made. The episode has already aired several times. Check your local listings to see when it airs in your area.

In addition, the expanding muscle car market is going to be “Green With Envy” as the Dodge brand announced a first-time, limited production run of the 2011 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic and SRT8® 392 models featuring Green With Envy exterior color.

2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392-Green with Envy

2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392-Green with Envy

Both Dodge Challenger models are improved for 2011 and deliver more of what American muscle-car enthusiasts want — unmistakable design, powerful HEMI® V-8 engines with new technologies and world-class handling and braking. Executed with quality and precision, the two new Challenger Green With Envy models provide an extra dose of exclusivity.

“We’re using Green With Envy on the new 2011 Dodge Challengers to pay tribute to some of the coolest paint colors from our past, including the “Sublime” and “Green Go” Dodge Challengers from the 1970’s and more recently, the “Snakeskin Green” Vipers from 2008-2010Not only will this exclusive heritage color remain unique to the Dodge brand, it adds another fresh and exciting element to our modern American muscle coupe.”

President and CEO
Dodge Brand
