2011 Dodge Challenger RT
The new 2011 Dodge Challenger delivers more of what muscle-car enthusiasts
want — a more powerful and efficient engine lineup, maximum grip with an
all-new performance suspension design and even more athletic styling —
all executed with quality and precision.
"To deliver the most thrilling to drive Challenger lineup ever, Dodge
upgraded the iconic coupe's performance hardware for maximum precision and
grip," said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO — Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group
LLC. "From its lighter aluminum Pentastar V-6 engine with 305 standard horsepower,
redesigned aluminum suspension geometry with aggressive negative camber for
better cornering grip, improved feel and fade-resistant braking, to a
near-balanced 50/50 weight distribution, the new 2011 Dodge Challenger has
the hardware to compete."
Improved Agility, High-speed Stability and Braking Performance
The new 2011 Dodge Challenger combines world-class ride, refinement and
braking performance with more power and new track-tuned suspensions to
deliver a thrilling driving experience.
Redesigned to handle the all-new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine's 305 horsepower (227 kW)
— 55 more horsepower than the previous
V-6 engine — the new 2011 Dodge Challenger SE features a new
road-gripping touring-tuned suspension with wider 18-inch wheels and tires
for added control. In addition, a revised brake-pedal ratio and refined
brake Booster improve braking
response and feel.
2011 Mopar Challenger V10 Drag Pak
In 2009 and 2010, Dodge released a special edition Challenger called the
Drag Pak. Both editions sold out fast so the Mopar boys are building
another one for 2011. If the '09 and '10 models went quick, this one is
going to be gone before you're done reading this paragraph.
Instead of sticking with the 6.1-liter Hemi V8 used last year, the 2011
Mopar Challenger Drag Pak crams a 512-cubic inch, 8.4-liter V10 engine and
mates it to a two-speed automatic transmission. If those engine numbers
sound familiar, and they should, it's because that's the same unit used in
the Dodge Viper -- which produces 600 horsepower and 560
pound-feet of torque.
Go back and re-read that last line -- Viper-V10 powered. Drag-race ready.
Besides the massive mill, this Mopar Challenger Drag Pak also features
everything you need to start your professional drag racing career. Get your
reading glasses out because there's a long list of features, some of which
we've highlighted below (the rest can be seen after the jump):
512 cid V-10 engine
2-speed automatic transmission with shift assembly and built-in roll
Special body-in-white modified for drag racing
Complete fuel cell assembly
Polycarbonate door windows
Lightweight drag-race only front brake assembly
Race-style wheels and tires
Only 70 units will be produced and they'll each have a starting MSRP of
$85,512. There are also three available optional packages for the car. The
Competition Package costs $7,950 and adds an eight-point roll cage,
six-point safety harness and a mesh window net. The Mopar Body Logo Wrap
will cost you $950. Finally, there is a range of available body colors if
you don't like the Bright White paint scheme, and they run $6,800.
The 2011 Mopar Challenger V10 Drag Pak will make its debut at the upcoming
2010 SEMA Show in early November. Since there are only going to be 70 made,
that may be the last time you see one unless you run down to your local
Dodge dealer and fill out an application to own one.

In our recent pony car comparison test, the retro-heavy — and just plain
heavy — 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS walked away with top
honors in its debut. The big V8-powered coupe needed a new challenge. It
was time to refocus the lens. Shoot from a different angle, so to speak.
So we squared the brooding visage of our SS-badged protagonist up against
the cruelest bunch of savages we could find, the range-topping 2009 Dodge
Challenger SRT8 and 2010 Ford Shelby GT500.

2011 Dodge Challenger
It's no secret that Chrysler is making the most of its new 3.6-liter
Pentastar V6 engine. We've tested this mill in the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee
and know the automaker has plans to offer it in the forthcoming Dodge
Avenger, Durango, Charger and Journey, as well as the new Chrysler 200, 300
and Town & Country. Good news all around, but what's most interesting is
that the Challenger pony car will benefit from Pentastar power, meaning
that the base V6 model will be better poised to compete with its cross-town
rivals, the Ford Mustang
and Chevrolet Camaro.
The 2011 Challenger V6 will produce 305 horsepower and 268
pound-feet of torque, gains of 55 hp and 18 lb-ft versus the 2010 model.
Compare that to the Mustang
with its new 305-hp 3.7-liter V6 and the Camaro with its direct-injected,
312-hp 3.6-liter six, and what we have here is quite the showdown. Now, all
the Challenger needs is a slightly better interior, and we'll be in
