New Dodge Challenger

On December 3, 2007, Chrysler started taking deposits for the third-generation Dodge Challenger, which debuted on February 6, 2008 simultaneously at the Chicago Auto Show and Philadelphia International Auto Show. Listing at US$40,095, the new version is a 2-door coupe which shares common design elements with the first generation Challenger, despite being significantly longer and taller. The chassis is a modified version of the LX platform that underpins the 2006-Current Dodge Charger, 2005-2008 Dodge Magnum, and the 2005-Current Chrysler 300. It is equipped with the SRT-8 6.1L Hemi and a 5-speed AutoStick automatic transmission, and outperforms the legendary 1970 Hemi Challenger. The entire 2008 run of 6,400 cars were pre-sold, and production commenced on May 8, 2008.

Chrysler debuted the 2009 line at the 2008 New York Auto Show, and 2009 brings a full lineup of cars to choose from, including:

The '09 SRT-8 is virtually identical to its '08 counterpart, with the main difference being the choice of either a 5-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission. In addition, the 09 will have a true positrac differential. The 08 model has uses brake assist to transfer torque to the tires with the most traction.

The mid-level Challenger is powered by a 5.7L HEMI V8 and coupled to either a 5-speed auto or 6-speed manual transmission. With the 6-speed manual, the Multi-Displacement System option is deleted.

A late-availability, the base model Challenger is powered by a 3.5L V6 and a 4-speed automatic transmission. Several different exterior colors, and either cloth or leather interiors are available.
