2009 Challenger Pictures, Specs, And Information

The 2009 Challenger, created by Dodge Mopar, is a beast to be reckoned with. Its sleek appearance and stylish interior are true to the car's classic legacy. Intended to compete with the revival of the Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro, this car has had plenty of pressure to bear. The 2009 Challenger comes in a powerful performance-oriented SRT trim which boasts an impressive 425-hp 6.1 liter Hemi V8 engine, with an optional (required - in all opinion) manual transmission. Other available options other than the SRT Challenger are the always classic R/T model, and the standard "plain Jane", SE model. This allows further options so that any Challenger lover can enjoy the new rendition of an old classic.

The 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT will be available in Black, Silver and HEMI Competition Orange. All colors feature the same styled hood stripe, to give the SRT8 a sleek and impressive look. The SRT Model comes powered by a 6.1L HEMI V8, bringing out more than 425 horsepower, 420 lb.-ft. of torque, making the 2009 SRT8 Model a classic incorporation of Dodges past Charger Models.

Sitting under the hood of the Challenger R/T is a powerful 5.7 liter Hemi V-8. The six-speed manual transmission option of the vehicle has a larger amount of power, creating 375 horsepower, whereas the automatic version creates 370 horsepower. The Automatic model produces 398 ft/lbs of torque, and the manual version creates 404 ft/lbs of torque. R/T Weighing more than 100 pounds less than the SRT model, the Challenger R/T comes with commendable fuel economy, running 15 miles per gallon in the city, and 23 miles per gallon highway. The Challenger however, gets better fuel economy when using the automatic transmission, running 16 miles per gallon in the city, and the same on highway mileage. This loss of mileage in the manual version is because of the absence of the MDS (Multiple-Displacement System), which allows improved fuel economy from 5.7L HEMI V-8 engines. When it comes to operating the manual model of the Challenger R/T, it is recommended that it is ran with premium-grade fuel, to give a higher bump in octane to reassure that the R/T performs to its expectation.

Other notable specifications that come with the R/T model include an anti-lock braking system, which comes with added traction control and electronic stability control systems to ensure safety when operating the vehicle, with satisfactory performance. Wheels which are given control by the braking system in the R/T models are 18 inch alloy wheels, rolling on high-performance tires.

The car's design is reminiscent of its classic ancestor created in the early 1970's. It is packed with the usual ABS, Power Steering, Airbags, most of the stuff you would typically find in a sports car. but some features to note are the antiskid system and a really cool "MyGig" Multimedia system with 20 Gig hard drive. The "MyGig" system is capable of storing your favorite pictures and music allowing you to seek media you want to enjoy with ease. This is not bad, considering it is coming from a retro-style car. It is certainly a new rendition of a classic favorite, providing drivers with a vehicle that looks impressive, and also retains power and performance that could leave any potential driver of the 2009 Challenger, satisfied.
