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
Challenger New vs. Old: Vanishing Point Revisited
"Our sole Challenger has just broken the ring of evil the deep blue meanies
have so righteously wrought — get through 'em baby, get through 'em." —
Super Soul, Vanishing Point 1971
It happens deep in the Nevada desert, just past Austin. On a long, straight
section of road with nothing to lose, our friends in the white 1970 Dodge
Challenger R/T finally put the hammer down. At once, the rawness and purity
of Kowalski's ride pulverizes the well-insulated interior of our 2008 Dodge
Challenger SRT8, shredding the peace inside the modern car's cockpit with
the same brute force Kowalski used to pierce a hole in the cool desert air
38 years ago. Even with my right foot buried, I see nothing but taillights
until they disappear into the desert.
In these few brief seconds, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is clearly
defined by its soft edges and quiet Exhaust. Manufacturers don't let us feel cars
raw and unfiltered anymore. Hammering down a desert road with a thin-rimmed
steering wheel and pistol-grip shifter — that's raw. Four hundred and
forty cubic inches and a four-speed — that's raw. Powerslides unhampered
by electronic intervention — that's raw.
In 1970, when Kowalski drove this very road — U.S. Highway 50 through
Nevada — he felt it. And it was raw.

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.
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.
Subaru Impreza WRX STI Spec C Debuts @ the Nürburgring
FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE 2010 SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI SPEC C:
If the number of letters in its name is at all proportionate with its level
of improvements, the 2010 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Spec C should be quite the
hatchback. Spotted for the first time lapping the Nürburgring recently,
this super STI has a number of upgrades designed to sharpen the performance
of the standard model.
According to sources in Japan, this STI's ride height has been lowered by
0.5 inch and fitted with stiffer dampers and springs. The lightweight
18-inch wheels are wrapped in Bridgestone run-flat tires, while the brakes
have been upgraded with the six-piston calipers from the Subaru Legacy STi
Finally, the engineers in Subaru City have tweaked the turbocharger and Exhaust system of the turbocharged 2.0-liter boxer engine to generate
beefier torque at lower revs and lift power from 300 horsepower to around 320 hp.
gear ratios have also
been revised, with 1st through 4th gears positioned closer together while
5th and 6th gear have been made taller to enhance top-end speed, as the
Spec C is expected to clear 165 mph.
With the performance hardware of the Spec C out of the way, the design team
turned to aerodynamics in order to add a little free horsepower.
One source close to the project tells us that in addition to giving the
Spec C a fully flat underbody, the Subaru engineers have also fitted a
lightweight aluminum rear diffuser that helps generate twice as much
downforce at speed than the current body.
No 'Ring lap times are available yet, but our snapper in Germany confirms
that the Spec C appeared more composed through low- and high-speed corners
and could easily slice 15 seconds off the current STI's time.
Expected to go on sale in Japan by year's end and then in Europe and
possibly in the U.S. by mid-2009, the Spec C could have a price tag of

In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2009 Dodge Challenger RT.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
Challenger Drag Race! - SE vs R/T vs SRT8
MT Technical Director Frank Markus tests the three 2009 Dodge Challenger
variants - SE, R/T, SRT8 - with a three-way drag race and laps around our
figure eight. Read the story here:
2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat: 707 Horsepower? Hell Yeah! – Ignition Ep. 116
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Universal Technical Institute,
Carlos Lago drives the most powerful production muscle car on the market:
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. While it isn’t the most powerful
production V-8 in the world (which loses to the $1 million McLaren P1 by 20
hp before electric motors), the Hellcat’s 707 hp rating seems too
incredible to believe -- especially when you consider the cost. The
question is whether this Challenger has any brain to go along with its
extreme brawn. Through a trip to the Dyno, the test track, the road,
and a standing mile, we find out.
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.
