The 2012 Dodge Challenger delivers exactly what muscle car enthusiasts want — a powerful and efficient engine lineup, a performance suspension designed for maximum grip, and athletic head-turning styling — all executed with quality and precision.
New for 2012, the Challenger lineup has been renamed to give the Dodge brand an even more consistent product portfolio focused on performance and value. The Dodge Challenger SXT model and Challenger SXT Plus package feature the lightweight, aluminum 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with 305 horsepower (227 kW), responsive 268 lb.-ft. (363 N•m) of torque and up to 27 mpg highway. With legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engines under their hoods, the 2012 Challenger R/T model delivers up to 375 horsepower (280 kW), 410 lb.-ft. (556 N•m) of torque and 25 mpg highway.
With its world-class ride, power, handling and braking performance, the 2012 Dodge Challenger now features a world-class 900-watt, 18-speaker premium surround-sound system from Harman Kardon®. The system offers world premier innovations, including a 32-volt Tracking Power Supply (TPS) 12-channel Class D amplifier that delivers outstanding acoustics and brings multi-dimensional, quality sound for all interior occupants.
Available on Dodge Challenger SXT Plus package and the R/T model with five-speed Auto Stick transmission are all-new die-cast zinc steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters that enable even more spirited driving. Race-inspired with precision feel, Challenger's all-new paddle shifters are ergonomically located behind the sporty thick-rimmed three-spoke Dodge steering wheel for maximum control.
Dodge Challenger's second-generation rear-wheel-drive architecture delivers world-class ride and handling with all of its three available suspension tunings and high-performing wheel and tire combinations (in order of increased handling and braking performance):
Sport-tuned -- standard on Dodge Challenger SXT and SXT PluS

2012 Dodge Durango
With its four-wheel independent suspension, near 50:50 weight distribution
and responsive steering and handling, Durango has driving dynamics unlike
what you typically find in a sport utility. No other SUV on the road
compares with the all-new Dodge Durango's distinctive bold Dodge design
that craftily houses a spacious three-row, seven-passenger functional,
flexible and premium interior, covered in soft-touch materials. Durango
features more than 30 storage areas, 28 seating configurations and a rear
cargo area of nearly 85 cubic feet that fits a 6-foot couch with room for
coffee table or a 10-foot ladder with the front passenger seat folded flat.
Utility may be one of Durango's key attributes, but safety did not take a
back seat during development. The 2012 Dodge Durango was recently named a
"Top Safety Pick" by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
New for 2012 is an automatic transmission on HEMI® V-8 equipped Durango
that allows drivers to choose between six speeds when shifting in manual
mode. The V-6 AWD models now get 23 miles per gallon, a 1 mile per gallon
improvement compared to last year's model.
Also new for the 2012 model year are second-row captain's chairs in the
already well equipped Durango interior (delayed availability).

and Citadel models.

► 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

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

2012 Dodge Challenger R/T Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/dodge/challenger/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Dodge
Challenger R/T is one good looking automobile and this muscle car exudes a
road presence unmatched by the Mustang or Camaro. Outside the Challenger
has remained true to its heritage with nice broad shoulders and retro front
end. The Challenger R/T has a base price of just under $30k but offers the
best deal of the bunch. The base V-6 model costs $25k ($5k less) but with
the R/T model you get the 5.7 HEMI V-8 engine that produces 410 horsepower and 400 lb-ft. of
torque. The Challenger SRT-8 is almost $14k more than the R/T. The 2012
Dodge Challenger R/T gets 15 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway but
you do not buy a muscle car for its gas mileage. The Challenger is built
on the Chrysler 300 chassis which is why it has the most comfortable ride
of all the new muscle cars that are currently for sale.

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat: 707 Horsepower? Hell Yeah! – Ignition Ep. 116
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Universal Technical Institute,
Carlos Lago drives the most powerful production muscle car on the market:
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. While it isn’t the most powerful
production V-8 in the world (which loses to the $1 million McLaren P1 by 20
hp before electric motors), the Hellcat’s 707 hp rating seems too
incredible to believe -- especially when you consider the cost. The
question is whether this Challenger has any brain to go along with its
extreme brawn. Through a trip to the Dyno, the test track, the road,
and a standing mile, we find out.
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.
