LEARN MORE ABOUT THE 2009 DODGE CHALLENGER R/T:
ENGLISHTOWN, New Jersey — There has been lots of speculation about the speed of the new 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T with its 375-horsepower 5.7-liter V8, and we were able to conduct our own independent testing at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey, the site of the official introduction of the 2009 Dodge Challenger lineup.
This is the very first chance to test the performance of Chrysler's new muscle car in R/T trim. Our data includes 0-60-mph acceleration, quarter-mile performance, braking distance and slalom speed, as well as insight from IL's test-driver.
Chrysler based its introduction of the 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8, R/T and SE at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park, a traditional stop for the NHRA's professional drag-racing championship. Thanks to our portable Racelogic VBOX III testing gear, we were able to use the track for performance testing, although the lack of a suitable plot of pavement precluded skid pad evaluation.
The 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T with its 375-hp 5.7-liter V8 and six-speed manual transmission accelerated to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds (5.5 seconds with 1 foot of rollout like on a drag strip), then reached the quarter-mile in 14.1 seconds at 100.8 mph. In comparison, the 315-hp 2008 Mustang Bullitt we tested late last year with a 4.6-liter V8 and Tremec five-speed manual transmission ran to 60 mph in just 5.2 seconds. The Bullitt also ran a 13.8-second quarter-mile at 102.1 mph.
At 4,041 pounds, the R/T weighs about 100 pounds less than a 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 with a six-speed transmission. In fact the R/T is only fractionally slower to 60 mph than the SRT8's 5.5 seconds (5.2 seconds with 1 foot of rollout). The difference lies in the higher redline of the SRT8's 425-hp 6.1-liter Hemi, which enables the car to pull past 60 mph in 2nd gear. In comparison, the R/T requires a shift into 3rd gear.
2009 Honda Pilot Full Test by Inside Line
If the 2009 Honda Pilot proves anything, it's that things have changed over
at Honda. One look at the new Pilot's zany front grille announces that the
company has unapologetically embraced vehicular embellishment. The overall
shape is only slightly less boxy than that of the Jeep Commander, and there
are so many creases and character lines in the sheet metal that the new
Pilot reminds us of 4,609 pounds of origami.
Albeit manly, butch, abstract-expressionist origami. Because this full-size
crossover wants to prove it's a real SUV, tough enough to take on that
whole camping, motorcycle-towing, snow-busting outdoor thing even while
preserving its family-friendly nature.
The first-generation Pilot looked like a shrunken version of the 1968
International Harvester Travelall. The 2009 Honda Pilot looks like it's
ready to star in a futuristic remake of Soylent Green. Still, under the
macho posturing you'll find a simple, solid Honda, which is as it should
2009 Hyundai Genesis 4.6 vs. 2008 Lexus GS 350
CHECK OUT THE HYUNDAI VS. LEXUS SMACKDOWN:
It's almost hard to write: Lexus vs. Hyundai. That's the New York Yankees
taking on the Albuquerque Isotopes — same game, different leagues. It's
pitting an exalted brand name to which millions aspire, up against the
bargain brand millions settle for. And yet despite that, putting the 2008
Lexus GS 350 up against Hyundai's audacious new 2009 Genesis 4.6 in a
luxury sedan throw-down has resulted in one of the closest finishes ever in
an Inside Line heads-up comparison test.
Yes, the Hyundai Genesis holds its own quite well against the Lexus GS 350
— without all that pesky prestige.
Dodge Challenger SRT8 @ the Track
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE DODGE CHALLENGER SRT8:
The 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is a muscle car, right? An American muscle
car. So naturally, the first thing I want to do when I jump behind the
wheel is a big American smoky burnout.
"Not here," says Pete Gladysz, the Dodge guy babysitting our test car and
riding shotgun, as he looks around the leafy, tranquil residential street
we're on in the middle of Pasadena. "Wait 'till we get to the track."
Gladysz, powertrain senior manager for Chrysler LLC's SRT Group, sounds
serious. So I wait.
2008 SEMA: Dodge Challenger Convertible
MORE SEMA INFO:
HIGH SPRINGS, Florida — Dodge has no plans to offer a Challenger
convertible, which provides Coach Builders Ltd. an open shot at muscle car
enthusiasts looking for an alternative to the popular Ford Mustang drop top. Now in final
preparations for its official debut at the upcoming 2008 SEMA Show, the
Coach Builders Dodge Challenger convertible will be shown alongside the
company's Chrysler 300C and Cadillac CTS convertible conversions.
Coach Builders' Larry Moran told Inside Line that production of the
Challenger convertible will begin on November 15, and that the company is
"already taking deposits for getting a place in line." The Challenger
convertible conversion is priced at $16,000, Moran said. A 2009 Dodge
Challenger SRT8 currently costs $41,695 including shipping charges and
gas-guzzler tax, so expect to pay nearly $58,000 for open-air Challenger
Moran also says that "custom interiors, performance options and wheels and
tires" will be offered, but the details "are not firmed up yet." The car
that will debut at SEMA was fortified with a Vortech Supercharger that bumps the 6.1-liter Hemi V8 to
560 horsepower and
510 pound-feet of torque. It rides slightly lower on a KW coil-over
suspension kit and 22-inch Foose Challenger wheels wrapped in Nitto tires.
The convertible conversion reinforces the Challenger with strut bars hidden
inside the trunk instead of a visible roll bar, and the acrylic polyester
cloth hydraulic top is padded between the structure and the exterior fabric
for sound and temperature insulation. A heated glass rear window and
matching fabric headliner are also included.
2009 Dodge Challenger SE Performance Test
READ MORE ABOUT THE EXCLUSIVE ROAD TEST OF THE CHALLENGER SE:
ENGLISHTOWN, New Jersey — The 2009 Dodge Challenger SE is the new,
affordable addition to the 2009 Dodge Challenger lineup. Following the
official introduction of the 2009 Dodge Challenger SE at Old Bridge
Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey, we conducted our own
independent testing of the entry-level coupe with its 250-horsepower 3.5-liter V6.
The business case for the Dodge Challenger depends on volume sales, not
just specialty cars like the 425-hp SRT8 model, and Chrysler believes the
Challenger SE can become a mainstream coupe, a two-door alternative to the
Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 sedans.
This is the very first chance to test the performance of Chrysler's new
muscle car with the V6 engine. The data includes 0-60-mph acceleration,
quarter-mile performance, braking distance and slalom speed, as well as
insight from IL's test driver.

The Cobra-Blown, Lexus V8 Swapped "No Style" '75 Corolla
Mark Still is a man of limited sports car experience, but is long on
fabrication skill. So when he decided he wanted to build a hillclimbing
monster, he started with what he was into: old Corollas. Now, his 1975
Coupe has the V8 and subframe from a Lexus SC400, an Eaton M112 Supercharger from a Mustang Cobra, a T56 6-speed gearbox,
and everything else is completely custom. We love it.
