Dodge Challenger SRT 392 Review
The Smoking Tire hits the canyons in the new and mostly improved Dodge
Challenger SRT 392. Are the recent updates to the Challenger enough to make
it a true sports car? Or is it still just a luxury cruiser?
► 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.
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
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
