2012 Dodge Challenger Review

Overview
After more than 1 000 concept sketches and years in the making THE ICONIC Challenger is back. The 2012Challenger boasts the DNA of its legendary predecessor flawlessly sculpted with improved proportions plus modern comforts and cutting edge technology. Powerful. Practical. Efficient. Challenger's versatile engine lineup doesn't just uphold its legendary performance reputation — it takes it to an entirely new level. Choose from 3.5-liter High-Output SOHC V6 the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 or the 6.1-liter SRT HEMI V8 with 425 ponies and 420 pound feet of torque. Challenger's available six-speed manual transmission features a two-disk clutch design that ensures exceptional engagement comfort low driver pedal efforts and optimized spinning inertia. Challenger's interior might throwback to another era but when it comes to comfort it's on the leading-edge. Connecting you to the things that matter most the available uconnect system[1] is your comprehensive hub of information entertainment and technology. Backing up Challenger's iconic style and high-performance ride is a focus on passenger safety and security. The government has awarded Challenger with the Five-Star Frontal and Side Crash Rating. The 2012 Dodge Challenger. More than a throwback. A huge leap forward.
