Chrysler has unveiled the new Dodge Challenger R/T Classic which pay homage to the old Challengers with some memorable blast-from-the-past design cues. Based on the 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T the Challenger R/T Classic features dual-throwback A-line body-side R/T stripes, ‘Challenger’ fender badgings in classic script font, 20-inch polished-chrome wheels, classic egg-crate grille with R/T badging, body-color rear-spoiler and a chrome fuel-filler door.
Power comes from a 5.7L HEMI V8 that sits under a raised performance hood with functional hood scoops that increase engine cooling. It produces a total of 376-hp with a maximum torque of 410 lb-ft. Mated to a Tremec 6-speed manual transmission the Challenger R/T Classic can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds. A 5-speed automatic is also available with multi-displacement system that allows the Challenger R/T Classic to operate on 4-cylinders.
The 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic is available in Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl, Bright Silver Metallic, Stone White and three Dodge heritage colors HEMI Orange, TorRed and B5 Blue. Pricing starts at $34,005 with orders being taken now.
