Chicago 2011: 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8

Meet the New SRT8 Charger. I like it.. but IMHO, If they were lose the black out on the bumper it would be a mean looking car. Like this... I see Evo X

Ya know, for a 4 door sporty car, you could do a lot worse. What does Chevy have to compete with that? You have to move into a Caddy and pony up $65K to beat it if you want a similar GM vehicle. It is what it is......

I didn't think it could look anymore like an Evo, but Dodge never fails to deliver.

I have to see 1 in person before I pass judgement. At least they pumped up the HP.

And a 19 speaker audio system..... 19?

465 Horsrpower?! OMG

Chicago auto show: 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 packs more power
By GREG MIGLIORE on 2/09/2011

With the car world still buzzing about the Super Bowl commercial starring Eminem, Chrysler unveiled a car in Chicago with real arrogance--the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8.

With apologies to the Chrysler 200, the Dodge delivers an exceptionally mean version of its flagship sedan to the tune of 465 hp from an even larger Hemi V8. That mill grows from 6.1 liters to 6.4 liters and now pumps out 465 lb-ft of torque.

The SRT8 arrives this fall as a 2012 model and will be priced slightly higher than the 2010 car. There also are significant changes to the body, which gets a snarkier grille with blacked-out parts; the Dodge crosshair fades a bit, and this is a hint of things to come for the brand. The car rides on gaudy 20-inch wheels, and the hood scoop is replaced up front by more of a domed setup. The inside is marked by heavily bolstered seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel and electronic goodies that track 0-to-60-mph times and lateral g-forces in the center touch screen.

The five-speed automatic is carryover, but for the first time, an SRT car will get paddle shifters. There's an active suspension with auto and sport settings and an active exhaust feature that helps fuel economy. This car can also drop down from eight cylinders to four cylinders when needed to conserve fuel. The city EPA figures are expected to improve by 15 percent and the highway figures by 26 percent.

"The car has the ability to change personality on the fly," Dodge CEO and Chrysler design boss Ralph Gilles told AutoWeek.

The Charger SRT8 joins the Challenger SRT8 in the Dodge's hot-rod stable. Both cars have the same Hemi, which measures 392 cubic inches.

Dodge will make as many copies of the car as it can sell, and it took care to address previous concerns over the harshness some SRT models were tagged with. Top speed is 175 mph.

Gilles called his latest Dodge demon a car he could drive across the country in, and he left open the possibility of a manual transmission entering the fray.

"We're listening to our customers very closely," he said


WOW

It needs more power because it is a pig as far as weight goes.
