As great as the 392 cubic-inch engine can be, it still has to work with a partner, and in this cop drama, the transmission plays the Bad Lieutenant.

The intuitive user interface for the system is controlled through the state-of-the-art Uconnect® Touch on the largest standard touchscreen display (8.4-inch) in the segment.
Building upon the standard Fuel Saver technology (four-cylinder mode) found in the new 6.4 HEMI V-8, a new for 2012 adaptive valve exhaust system allows the technology to engage over a wider rpm range, which delivers improved fuel efficiency or the use of all eight cylinders when the power is needed.
The new Charger SRT8 will feature a new adaptive damping suspension that uses a wide range of on-road and driver inputs, such as vehicle speed, steering angle, steering speed, brake torque, throttle position and lateral acceleration.
Powerful engine Faster than previous version Competitors don’t stand a chance Cops will flock to it like bees to honey Gas mileage may leave your wallet a tad bare gallery: Dodge Charger SRT8.

A gloss black cross grille sits prominently on the nose, while polished four-inch exhaust tips indicate this Charger isn't to be messed with.
Even with the questionable gearbox in place, Chrysler reckons the SRT8 can sprint to 60 mph from a standstill in the high-4 second range, achieve 0.88 g on the skidpad, and top out at an estimated 175 mph.

The aggressive new front end incorporates a blacked-out grille and center section, while the Hemi’s hat—the hood—is reshaped with a power bulge, air-exhaust vent, and 6.4-liter badging.
But we think it will be a little quicker than that: We estimate the car will cover a 0-to-60-mph sprint in 4.6 seconds, reach 100 mph in 11.0 seconds, and blast through the quarter-mile in 13 flat.
