Dodge Outs 2011 Charger SRT8 with 392 Hemi V-8

I like some Dodge cars, but for the most part, I am not a fan of what the company is designing with heavy vehicles that have a lot of power and still can’t run with other brands with less power and lighter vehicles. Dodge has offered some details on the 2011 Charger SRT8, though it has offered the info without any official pics. Fail.

The new Charger sounds really good on paper with a new Hemi V8 dubbed the 392 Hemi. The power plant gets 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque and it will be offered with a five-speed auto transmission or a six-speed manual. The new V8 promises to push the Charger SRT8 into the high 4-second range for 0-60 and the high 12's in the quarter mile. It's worth noting that these new numbers are simply on par with the 2011 Mustang GT's 5.0 V8 offering "only" 412 hp. The GT and the Charger SRT8's performance are nearly neck and neck on paper.

The SRT8 is a rear wheel drive vehicle with world-class ride and handling along with high-performance braking according to Dodge. I will wait for some reviews before I believe that bit about world-class handling. Dodge's cars like the Charger and Challenger are widely know to be hogs when it comes to handling and judging by the power output of the motor and the performance Dodge estimates, the Charger is still a big and heavy car.

Dodge has also announced that the vehicle will have fuel saver tech in automatic versions that lets the car run on only four of the eight cylinders to save fuel when cruising. It appears that manual transmission models lack that feature. Dodge will produce 1,492 Inaugural Edition models with 1100 coming to the US and 392 heading to Canada. These special editions will have exclusive interior and exterior features. The colors on these special editions will include Deep Water Blue with white stripes and Bright White Clear Coat with Viper Blue Stripes.

Dodge is mum on pricing and availability of the new Charger SRT8. These cars have always been expensive I would expect it to land in the mid to high $40,000 range if not more. I'll take the 2011 Mustang GT instead. The image here is a spy shot from MotorAuthority.
