Dodge Challenger SRT8 - Exclusive Performance Test
CHECK OUT THE 2009 CHALLENGER SRT8 PERFORMANCE TEST:
ENGLISHTOWN, New Jersey — Following the official introduction of the 2009
Dodge Challenger SRT8 at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown,
New Jersey, we conducted our own independent testing of the 425-horsepower coupe, now
available with a six-speed manual transmission for the new model year.
This is the very first chance to test the performance of Chrysler's new
muscle car with the combination of the SRT 6.1-liter Hemi V8 and the Tremec
six-speed manual transmission. The data includes 0-60-mph acceleration,
quarter-mile performance, braking distance and slalom speed, as well as
insight from IL's test driver.
Chrysler based its introduction of the 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8, RT and
SE at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park, a traditional stop for the NHRA's
professional drag-racing championship. Thanks to our portable Racelogic
VBOX III testing gear, we were able to use the track for performance
testing, although the lack of a suitable plot of pavement precluded skid
The 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 with its 425-hp 6.1-liter V8 and six-speed
manual transmission accelerated to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds (5.2 seconds with
1 foot of rollout), then reached the quarter-mile in 13.8 seconds at 103.0
mph. This compares to the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 with its five-speed
automatic that achieved 60 mph in 5.1 seconds (4.8 seconds with 1 foot of
rollout) and completed the quarter-mile in 13.2 seconds at 107.5 mph.
We're surprised that the 2008 Challenger SRT8 with its automatic
transmission has the edge in speed here, but we were slightly suspicious at
the time that it had an unusually healthy engine. In comparison, the engine
of this 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 with its manual transmission seemed
slightly sick during our testing. In the end, we're still left with some
questions about the comparative performance of automatic and manual
transmissions in this car.
