First Look: Dodge Charger SRT8

March 31, 2005

Performance-car aficionados had a lot to celebrate when Dodge unveiled the all-new 2006 Dodge Charger into its lineup. That performance gets kicked up a notch with the introduction of the all-new 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8.Just as the very first Charger – the original 1964 “Charger by Dodge” concept car -- sported a HEMI V-8, the all-new 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 boasts a big-bore, SRT-engineered version producing 425 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque.With its infusion of Street and Racing Technology (SRT) DNA, Chrysler says the Charger SRT8 is capable of awe-inspiring numbers unheard-of in a muscle sedan: 0-60 mph in around five seconds, quarter-mile time in the 13-second range and braking distance from 60-0 mph in approximately 110 feet. The Dodge Charger SRT8 is also capable of accomplishing SRT’s signature performance test of 0-100-0 mph in the mid 16-second range. Chassis improvements on the 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 include SRT-tuned dampers, specially tailored spring rates and suspension bushings, and large-diameter anti-sway bars. The ride height of the 2006 Charger SRT8 is one-half inch lower than the Dodge Charger. Handling is enhanced for performance with an Electronic Stability Program (ESP) specially tunedfor the 2006 Charger SRT8.The Charger SRT8 rides on unique SRT-developed five-spoke 20-inch forged aluminum wheels and high-performance Goodyear Supercar F1 three-season tires. All four wheels feature Brembo performance brake calipers.No price has been announced.
