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.
A look under the hood reveals unique valve covers with painted silver ribs and the "392 HEMI" logo, which gives the engine a unique, clean and aggressive look.
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 shifting schedule.
► 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 on the track
New for the 2012 Charger SRT8 is the 470 horsepower 6.4-litre HEMI®
V8 that features 45 more horsepower and 50 more
lb.-ft. of torque across a significantly wider rpm range, new Exhaust system technology for improved fuel
efficiency, along with new paddle shift technology and adaptive damping
suspension for optimal driver control.
Performance numbers for the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 include 0-96 km/h (0-60
mph) acceleration in the high 4-second range; quarter mile in the high
12-second range; 0-160-0 km/h (0-100-0 mph) in less than 16 seconds; top
speed of 282 km/h (175 mph) and stopping power from 96-0 km/h (60-0 mph) in
37metres (120 feet).
Under the hood, the new 6.4- litre HEMI® V8 delivers more horsepower and torque than
the 6.1-litre HEMI V8 it replaces -- up 11 per cent to 470 horsepower (351 kW) and up
12 per cent to 470 (637 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque.
► Chrysler 300 SRT8 (2012) on the track
The Street and Racing Technology (SRT) performance engineering team builds
upon the all-new 2011 Chrysler 300 sedan already executed for a world-class
luxury experience, to deliver Chrysler's most powerful and best handling
Performance numbers include 0-60 mph acceleration in the high 4-second
range; quarter mile in high 12-second range; 0-100-0 mph in less than 16
seconds, top speed of 175 mph and stopping power from 60-0 mph in 120 feet.
The return of the 300 SRT8 to the Chrysler lineup in 2012 evokes a strong
comparison to the original high-performance production car of its time --
the 1955 Chrysler 300. Known for simple, strong lines, excellent
engineering, high levels of luxury and outstanding performance with the
first modern American V-8 engine to produce 300 horsepower, the first
Chrysler 300 (C-300) was styled by Virgil Exner, who radically redesigned
the entire Chrysler line and created what they called "The Forward Look" in
1955. Without much chrome on the sides, his designs were simple, but
strong. Exner is credited with creating the illusion of fast, forward
Under the hood of the 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8, the new 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8
makes its debut in the Chrysler brand product lineup delivering 470 horsepower (351 kW) and
470 (637 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque, up 45 horsepower and 50 lb.-ft.
over the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces.
The improved torque output -- including an additional 80 lb.-ft. at 2,900
rpm -- allows for inspired standing starts and improved straight-line
performance while new, performance-tuned motor mounts improve idle
stability and ride control at any speed. An active intake manifold and
high-lift camshaft with cam phasing provides maximum low-end torque while
optimizing high-end power.
► 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8
Designed and built using the proven SRT formula that raises the performance
to astonishing levels, the new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 runs from 0-60
mph in 4.8 seconds, 0-100-0 mph in the mid-16 second range, can cover the
quarter mile in the mid-13 second range, has a top speed of 160 mph, and
brakes from 60-0 mph in 116 feet.
Powering the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is Chrysler Group's all-new
6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 with Fuel Saver Technology that delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 465
(630 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque -- an improvement of 50 horsepower and 45 lb.-ft.
torque over the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces.
An active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft with cam phasing delivers
maximum low-end torque while optimizing high-end power across a wider and
improved rpm band. Specifically, 90-percent of peak torque is available
between 2,800 and 6,000 rpm, allowing for inspired standing starts and
improved straight-line performance.
Standard Fuel Saver Technology and a new-for-2012 active valve Exhaust system allows four-cylinder operation to
engage over a wider rpm range, to deliver both improved fuel efficiency --
a 13-percent increase on the highway -- and an extended range of 450 miles
on one tank of gas.
Standard steering wheel mounted paddle shifters join the standard Auto
Stick on the floor. Both are mated to a proven automatic transmission,
allowing a choice of spirited shifting on the road and the race track. Both
methods give the driver the ability to shift while the transmission
controller calibration prevents situations that might over rev the engine.
Fully adaptive electronic control of all shifting makes the powertrain more
responsive while minimizing harshness.
Chrysler Group's SRT vehicles are well known for their world-class braking.
Stopping power for the 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 comes courtesy of new SRT
high-performance Brembo brakes with four-wheel anti-lock brake system
Stopping distance performance of 116 feet from 60-0 mph is made possible by
new red-painted, Brembo 6-piston (front) and 4-piston (rear) calipers, and
vented rotors at all four corners measuring 15-inches (front) and
