► 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 on the Track
The 392-cubic inch (6.4-liter) HEMI® V-8 delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 470
(637 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque. The torque band is extremely flat allowing
for strong standing starts and improved straight-line performance
throughout the rpm range. An advanced active intake manifold along with
high-lift cam with phasing provides maximum low-end torque and high-end
power while still delivering up to 23 miles per gallon on the highway with
the standard manual transmission. Performance-tuned engine mounts improve
idle stability and ride control at all speeds.
Standard Fuel Saver Technology (four cylinder mode) in automatic
transmission equipped models allows the engine to operate economically on
four cylinders or use the power of all eight cylinders when needed. The EPA
fuel economy miles per gallon (mpg) (City/Hwy) ratings for the 2012 Dodge
Challenger SRT8 392 are 14/22 for automatic transmission models and 14/23
for manual-transmission models.

The 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 features a standard Tremec TR-6060
six-speed manual transmission and a dual-disc high performance clutch -- a
proven performer that was first offered on the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10®.
The optional five-speed automatic transmission features new, standard
steering wheel mounted paddle shifters that join the center console mounted
Auto Stick, allowing for a choice of spirited shifting on both the road and
the race track. Both methods give the driver the ability to manually select
specific gears on the transmission.
In "Drive," the transmission controller will automatically shift the
vehicle. The aggressiveness of the shifting is defined by the mode chosen -
either "Normal" or "Sport." Fully adaptive electronic control of all
shifting makes the powertrain more responsive while minimizing harshness.
In "Manual," the shift method is defined by the driver choosing to use
either paddle shift or Auto Stick. The "Sport" mode adds a hold function to
the calibration in all gears, allowing the driver full control of the

► 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona
The 2013 Dodge Charger R/T is one of the best performance sedan values on
the market, and now it's about to get even more distinctive. Debuting at
the 2012 Los Angeles International Auto Show is the re-introduction of the
legendary Charger Daytona. Available in Charger R/T and Charger R/T Road &
Track trim levels, the 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona brings back the unique
style of the historic Daytona package with all the modern performance and
technology offered in the current Charger line-up. Just 2,500 units of the
Daytona will be produced in this limited-production run.
"With its 370 horsepower HEMI V-8,
rear-wheel drive and iconic design, the 2013 Dodge Charger is a modern day
muscle car, and the new Charger Daytona takes it to a new level by paying
homage to the historic 'Daytona' nameplate," said Reid Bigland, President
and CEO, Dodge Brand. "It starts with a legendary HEMI underfoot and
one-of-a-kind interior and exterior styling enhancements that perfectly
combine heritage, performance and value, starting under $33,000 MSRP."
Available in a unique color palette of Daytona Blue, Bright White, Billet
Silver or Pitch Black, the Daytona package features special dark trim that
builds upon the Charger's iconic muscle car design. Satin Black adorns the
front crosshair grille with heritage "R/T" badge, the custom vinyl hood
graphic, roof wrap, rear R/T spoiler and the "DAYTONA" graphic on the rear
quarter panels. The Daytona features exclusive 20-inch five-spoke polished
aluminum wheels with Gloss Black painted pockets.
Daytona models also include a 'Daytona Blue' engine cover, performance 3.06
rear axle ratio, high-speed engine controller, paddle shifters with sport
mode and performance steering and suspension.
The Charger Daytona's interior on the Road & Track features unique black
performance Nappa leather and suede heated and ventilated seats with
Daytona Blue stitching and piping. Similarly, the Daytona on the R/T offers
the same appearance in a custom sport cloth seat. "DAYTONA" is embroidered
in blue into the upper front seat backs. Unique dark brushed aluminum trim
surrounds the 8.4-inch Uconnect Touch screen and gauges on the instrument
panel, as well as the trim around the shifter and cup holders on the center
console. Finishing touches include a Mopar bright pedal kit, a 552-watt
10-speaker Beats Audio System, and a special numbered "DAYTONA" badge on
the instrument panel that features the build number of that specific
Charger Daytona model.
Built at Chrysler Group LLC's Brampton, Ontario, assembly plant, the 2013
Dodge Charger Daytona arrives at Dodge dealerships nationwide in the first
quarter of 2013 with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of
$32,990 for R/T and $36,495 for R/T Road &Track Daytona models.

Samuel Hubinette's Daily Driven Supercharged SRT Charger
HSPN Networks (in association with Drift.com) correspondents caught up with
Samuel Hubinette during a Mopar testing day. Since we had some free time on
our hands while the mechanics prepped the new SRT8 Charger, Sam was cool
enough to showcase what his daily driven supercharged SRT charger could do.
As you can plainly see this guy has mad skills, congratulations Samuel on
your 2006 Formula D points victory!

First Drive: Is 2011 Dodge Charger still style over substance?
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Forty four years ago the very first Dodge Charger
rolled off the assembly line and for much of that time some would say that
the Charger has been style over substance. For 2011 Dodge says that's all
changed. Now that Dodge's parent company Chrysler is owned by European
Fiat, the new Charger is a much more of a blend of European driving
dynamics with more traditional American car muscle. But you have to wonder
does it all work.
