The 2005 Dodge Magnum has an entry-level Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $27,995 that includes the standard 2.7-litre V6 engine, Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and all-speed traction control, which controls rear-wheel drive vehicles in a way that is transparent to the driver for all-surface and all-weather driving conditions, says the company.

The 2005 Dodge Magnum RT features a 340-horsepower 5.7-litre HEMI V8 engine with Multi Displacement System, which alternates between smooth, high fuel-economy four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and eight-cylinder mode when more power is in demand. This improves fuel efficiency up to 20 percent. The MSRP of Dodge Magnum RT is $36,995.

Both Dodge Magnum and Dodge Magnum RT have four-wheel independent suspension, four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes (ABS), and electronic brake force distribution. The chassis is well balanced with a front engine and rear-wheel drive. Optional all-wheel drive will become available later in the year.
