For 2012, the Dodge Challenger SRT8® 392 adds even more high-tech performance features to solidify its place as the brand's ultimate modern American rear-wheel-drive muscle coupe. This 470 horsepower machine promises a balanced performance approach with outstanding straight-line acceleration, world-class ride and handling, high-performance braking and the most up-to-date technologies that deliver more driver excitement and control. And it still gets up to 23 miles per gallon on the highway.
The 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 accelerates from 0-60 mph in the high 4-second range; runs the quarter mile in mid-12-second range with the automatic transmission (high 12-second range with the manual); goes from 0-100-0 mph in the low 15s, reaches a top speed of 182 mph with the manual transmission (175 mph with the automatic) and stops from 60-0 mph in just 117 feet.
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 aggressive look.
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 shifting schedule.
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8
The most powerful, technologically advanced, high-performance Jeep®
vehicle ever -- the all-new 2012 Jeep® Grand Cherokee SRT8® -- arrives
later this summer with a combination of Jeep's legendary capability and
utility, merged with the renowned advanced performance engineering from
Chrysler Group LLC's Street and Racing Technology (SRT) team.
Delivering outstanding driving performance in all conditions, and
complemented by key SRT attributes -- including functional,
performance-oriented styling, world-class ride and handling, benchmark
braking and race-inspired interior appointments -- the 2012 Jeep Grand
Cherokee SRT8 broadens the Jeep vehicle lineup and builds upon the
successful launch of the award-winning 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Powering the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is Chrysler Group's all-new
6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 with Fuel Saver Technology that delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 465
(630 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque -- an improvement of 50 horsepower and 45 lb.-ft.
torque over the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces.
An active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft with cam phasing delivers
maximum low-end torque while optimizing high-end power across a wider and
improved rpm band. Specifically, 90-percent of peak torque is available
between 2,800 and 6,000 rpm, allowing for inspired standing starts and
improved straight-line performance.
Standard Fuel Saver Technology and a new-for-2012 active valve Exhaust system allows four-cylinder operation to
engage over a wider rpm range, to deliver both improved fuel efficiency --
a 13-percent increase on the highway -- and an extended range of 450 miles
on one tank of gas.
Standard steering wheel mounted paddle shifters join the standard Auto
Stick on the floor. Both are mated to a proven automatic transmission,
allowing a choice of spirited shifting on the road and the race track. Both
methods give the driver the ability to shift while the transmission
controller calibration prevents situations that might over rev the engine.
Fully adaptive electronic control of all shifting makes the powertrain more
responsive while minimizing harshness.

Jeep Compass 2011
Offering unsurpassed 4x4 fuel economy and off-road capability in the
compact-SUV segment, the new 2011 Jeep® Compass features a stunning new
sophisticated design, with cues coming directly from the brand's premium
icon, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Coupled with a host of interior refinements, and improved ride and handling
characteristics in all conditions -- courtesy of upgraded steering and
suspension systems -- the new Jeep Compass offers a unique blend of premium
styling, capability, efficiency and value that is unmatched in the
The 2011 Jeep Compass' powertrain is designed to deliver world-class
performance in all weather conditions, fuel economy and refinement, all at
an affordable, value-packed price.
Compass features a standard 2.0-liter World Engine for the Compass and
Latitude models that provides 158 horsepower (117 kW) and 141
lb.-ft. (191 N•m) of torque coupled with the continuously variable
transmission (CVT2), and delivers unsurpassed 23 mpg in the city, and 29
mpg on the highway when mated to the five-speed manual transmission.
The proven 2.4-liter World Engine produces 172-horsepower and 165 lb.-ft.
of torque and is available on all models and standard on the Limited. This
2.4-liter World Engine has dual Variable Valve Timing (VVT) on both intake
and Exhaust camshafts, which helps
optimize the torque curve at all speeds and produces more power, better
fuel economy and smoother, quieter operation than engines without dual VVT.
Dual VVT is a technology typically not available on vehicles sold in the
United States in the Jeep Compass' price class. The Jeep Compass' 2.4-liter
four-cylinder engine paired with a five-speed manual transaxle in
front-wheel drive configuration delivers unsurpassed 23 miles per gallon
(mpg) in the city, and 29 mpg on the highway.
Jeep Compass also features a standard five-speed manual transaxle on the
entry-level Compass and a CVT that is available on the Compass and standard
on the Latitude and Limited models. The Compass' CVT2 is a
second-generation CVT that Chrysler Group engineers calibrated for pleasing
engine response and precise ratio control. CVT2 contributes to a fuel
economy improvement of 6--8 percent compared with a traditional four-speed
automatic. The Compass CVT2 also improves vehicle performance compared with
a traditional automatic transaxle because of optimized gear ratios, especially in the
30--60 mph range during passing maneuvers.
The 2011 Jeep Compass also provides up to 2,000 lbs. of towing capacity.

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.
