For 2013, the Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 adds even more new and improved high-tech performance features to solidify its place as the brand’s ultimate modern American rear-wheel-drive muscle coupe. The 392-cubic inch (6.4-liter) HEMI V8 delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 470 lb.-ft. (637 Nm) 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 23 miles per gallon on the highway with the standard manual transmission or available automatic transmission. Performance-tuned engine mounts improve idle stability and ride control at all speeds.
