Additional Info: The 3rd generation Challenger was introduced in 2008 after a 25 year break from production. Various classic styling options available, such as R/T stripes, Torq Thrust wheels and classic paint colours. Also available for the R/T are various other packages such as the “Track Pak” option, which adds a Tremec manual transmission, a limited slip differential and self-leveling rear shock absorbers. The 5.7 litre Hemi has some engine updates in 2011, with power remaining at 375bhp. In 2014 3 scat packages were added that offered numerous performance upgrades. Also in 2014 the Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker was introduced with a functional “Shaker” hood, running the 5.7 litre Hemi. And if that isn’t enough the Shaker can be ordered (limited run of 100) as the Mopar ’14 Challenger, with any combination of the 3 Scat Packages and a Bright White or Gloss Black exterior paint and Mopar stripes – see more here. In 2017 the Challenger GT was released with a 305bhp 3.6 litre V6 and AWD for all weather driving.

Additional Info: In 2011 the 6.1 litre Hemi engine got replaced with a 470bhp/470lbft 6.4 litre Hemi engine producing the Challenger SRT8 392 with a claimed 1/4 mile time in the mid to high 12’s. A Drag Race Package that reduces the cars weight by 1000lbs for NHRA competition reasons has been introduced, but numbers are limited to only 100 cars. In 2015 the 6.4 litre is now rated at 485bhp and there is a new Challenger SRT, with a 707bhp/650lbft supercharged 6.2 litre Hemi named the ‘Hellcat’ that can cover the 1/4 mile in 11.2 seconds and run to 199mph. In 2017 the Challenger SRT Demon was released with 840bhp and 770lbft of torque with a 0-60 of just 2.3 seconds and 1/4 mile of just 9.65 seconds see more here.
