"We're continuing the fast-paced rebuilding of Dodge as our performance brand, and the expansion of our SRT product lineup in 2012 is an important part of our rejuvenation," said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO, Dodge Brand — Chrysler Group LLCs. "The new 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 builds on the iconic four-door fastback coupe design of the all-new Charger and adds a much larger power band across the rpm range, along with intelligent performance attributes and safety and creature comforts for customers who are passionate about performance driving."
Assessed power evaluations for the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 are 465 strength and 465 lb.- ft. of torque, including an expected extra 80 lb.- ft. of torque at 2,900 rpm. Particular pull, torque and mileage numbers will be declared closer to the vehicle presentation.
Expanding upon the standard Fuel Saver innovation (four-barrel mode) found in the new 6.4 HEMI V-8, another for 2012 versatile valve debilitate framework permits the innovation to draw in over a more extensive rpm range, which conveys enhanced fuel productivity or the utilization of every one of the eight chambers when the force is required.
