NEW FOR 2008:
A brand-new model for 2008, the Dodge Challenger revives the name last used for the 1970-1974 Challenger models.
The Challenger is based on the LX rear-wheel drive platform, shared with the Chrysler 300, Dodge Magnum and Dodge Charger. While more engine choices will be offered in the future, the sole 2008 model is a high-performance SRT8 version with a 6.1-litre Hemi V8 engine and five-speed automatic transmission. Only a limited number will be built for the 2008 model year, each with a numbered dash plaque.
Features include 20-inch alloy wheels, red Brembo calipers, leather SRT sport seats, high-intensity discharge headlamps, garage door opener, knee bolsters, power door locks with keyless entry, tire pressure monitoring system, Bluetooth hands-free telephone system, theft security alarm and Kicker High Performance stereo with SIRIUS Satellite Radio.
Available options include MyGig infotainment system with navigation, power sunroof and three-season Goodyear F1 Supercar tires.
