The Dodge Magnum name has been used on a number of different automobiles. The most recent is a large rear-wheel drive station wagon introduced in 2004 for the 2005 model year.
The Magnum was Dodge's first station wagon since the discontinuation of the Dodge Colt wagon in 1991, and though it was the largest American-brand station wagon introduced since the discontinuation of the Chevrolet Caprice/Buick Roadmaster Estate wagons in 1996, it is smaller than "traditional" players in the full-size category (roughly 4" narrower and 15" shorter than a Ford Crown Victoria). Based on the similar size and styling, the Dodge Magnum could be considered by some a spiritual successor to the AMC Concord.
A high performance SRT-8 version debuted at the 2005 Los Angeles Auto Show. It went on sale in 2005 as a 2006 model. Like the 300C SRT-8, it featured the new 6.1 L Hemi engine, which produces 425 hp 20" wheels, firmer suspension, bigger brakes, new lower-body treatment, and a revised front and rear-fascia completes the transformation. The SRT-8 was named Best New Modern Muscle Car in the 2006 Canadian Car of the Year contest.
2006 Dodge Magnum SRT-8 Review
Meet the Dodge Magnum SRT-8, America's first race inspired full-size wagon.
The Magnum SRT-8 is powered by a 6.1l Hemi V8 bumping out 425 hp.
Stopping is brought courtesy of 14" Brembo brakes encased in 20" forged
aluminum wheels that are wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires. All
of this, and the Magnum SRT-8 allows for 71 cubic feet of storing space,
making it the most performance oriented grocery cart in the world.
Finally, Dodge has found their niche.

3.5 L Chrysler V6 Spark Plug Change (Magnum, Charger, Challenger)
How I changed spark plugs on a 3.5 L V6 non-transverse mounted Chrysler
engine in a SXT Magnum.
I don't usually work on Chrysler products, excuse my ignorance about how to
do this from the start. I usually work on Honda/Acura and Toyota/Lexus
products and am much, much more familiar with them.
Tools I needed (used):
15 mm open end wrench
Spark plug socket
Needle Nose Pliers
10mm open end/box end wrench
10mm deep well socket
Flat head screwdriver (common end)
Spark Plugs (NGK OEM Laser Platinum)
Feel free to ask questions or comment. I didn't call the dealership to
find out how much they would have charged. I paid $5.66 x 6 for the NGK
Plugs and a few dollars for anti-seize so it was just under $40.
