The 392 Challenger & Redline Charger At 2010 SEMA

During the 2010 SEMA show, Dodge unveiled the Challenger 392 SRT8 along with the 2011 “Red Line” Charger R/T to an anxious audience of passionate gearhead. Eric Andrew, Dodge Challenger/Charger Product Line Manager, gives us some great “insider” information on the two great vehicles and the direct link to their iconic ancestors of the late 1960’s and early 70’s.

    The Redline Charger is really well done. You have to make a limited edition of these or just make it the SRT8 with the 392 HEMI. People want to buy this car ready to go instead of having to buy all the aftermarket parts and have extra hoods sitting around in the garage to get all dented up. This car will sell. Even my 60 year old boss stopped dead in his tracks when he saw the picture as a background on my computer. This car is a head turner and everyone likes it.

    I love Dodge vehicle’s. Challenger’s and your Charger’s are great. BUT, your new 2011 Charger’s are a miss. I don’t like the front ends on this years model. I do like the back end a lot better this year. I am a four door lover, I believe the Charger should have been a two door.

    My favorite Charger is the 1969 model.

    It’s time for a new T/A CHALLENGER…improved suspension (SRT parts and Mopar ’10 parts), however, make it forced induction (blown or turbos) on the new 6 cyl. Less weight would prove better for handling and stick to the classic T/A theme more so than big motor grunt. The Mopar ’10 edition has the functioning hood and retro shifter (and a mopar part number) so the looks should be easy to pull off shelf. Maybe offer optional lightweight/ big bolster seats to complete the theme and recoup the price by not offering the bells and whistles on base RT making it a driver’s car and not for everyone, i.e-if you want navi get the base R/T (keep it priced in the RT classic stratosphere by keeping it low on lux and high on performance, less is more for the T/A)..and take note on how Ford did side exit exhaust on the new Boss..PLEASE DON’T JUST SLAP A STICKER ON IT! Do it right or don’t do it. In short, tighten suspension, leave out the fluff and go light weight V6 forced induction. Might even get some of the import guys attention…And make more than 500! (enough with the special editions…not everyone wants to pay more than MSRP..)

    Better sporty look than other previous models Now i might consider a four door but you’d sell more if you made it in two door models instead. I still wold buy the Challenger becasue of the two door.
