Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 

  • built in Canada
  • 2010
  • 470 HP 6.4L
  • 170 mph
It actually covers ground quickly, with surprisingly good body control and accurate steering, but the 1.9-ton weight hinders agility on really twisty roads.
by EVO (Mar, 2011)
The “392” harks back to a magical Chrysler Hemi engine from the early days of drag racing, although the capacity of this engine is actually 391 cubic inches.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Powertrain

The engine also gets a new two-stage intake manifold and variable cam timing, pushing power to 470bhp and torque to 470lb ft..
by EVO (Mar, 2011)
The new engine features a 0.9mm wider bore and a 3.6mm longer stroke, for 6.4 litres.
by EVO (Mar, 2011)
The previous SRT8 had a 6.1-litre engine making 425bhp and 420lb ft of torque, but mid-range grunt was lacking, allegedly.
by EVO (Mar, 2011)

Performance

It feels like 1969 all over again, with Dodge, Ford, and Chevrolet releasing ever-higher horsepower versions of their "pony cars.
by EVO (Mar, 2011)
The V8 makes big noise and provides solid thrust, pushing the SRT8 onto a claimed top speed of 180mph, with a 0-60mph time of around 4.8sec.
by EVO (Mar, 2011)

Handling

The Brembos haul all that mass down from high speed with aplomb, however, and the ride at speed is decent, considering the 20in wheels and stiffened suspension.
by EVO (Mar, 2011)
The chassis features a quicker steering rack, uprated anti-roll bars, new Bilsteins, and stiffer bushings.
