The 2014 Challenger SRT offers high-tech performance features to solidify its
place as the brand's ultimate modern American rear-wheel-drive muscle coupe.
This 470 horsepower machine promises a balanced performance approach with
outstanding straight-line acceleration, world-class ride and handling,
high-performance braking and the most up-to-date technologies that deliver more
driver excitement and control. And it still delivers up to 23 miles per gallon
(mpg) on the highway.
The 2014 Challenger SRT accelerates from 0-60 mph in the high 4-second range; runs the quarter mile in mid-12-second range with the automatic transmission (high 12-second range with the manual); goes from 0-100-0 mph in the low 15s, reaches a top speed of 182 mph with the manual transmission (175 mph with the automatic) and stops from 60-0 mph in just 117 feet.
The 392-cubic inch, 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque. The torque band is extremely flat allowing for strong standing starts and improved straight-line performance throughout the rpm range. An advanced active intake manifold along with high-lift cam with phasing provides maximum low-end torque and high-end power while still delivering 23 miles per gallon (mpg) on the highway with the standard manual transmission or available automatic transmission. Performance-tuned engine mounts improve idle stability and ride control at all speeds.
A look under the hood reveals unique valve covers with painted silver ribs and the "392 HEMI" logo, which gives the engine a unique, clean and aggressive look.
The 2014 Challenger SRT features a standard Tremec TR-6060 six-speed manual transmission and a dual-disc high-performance clutch - a proven performer that was first offered on the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10.
The optional five-speed automatic transmission features standard steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters and the center console mounted Auto Stick, allowing for a choice of spirited shifting on both the road and the racetrack. Both methods give the driver the ability to manually select specific gears on the transmission.
