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):

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
