When Dodge unveiled the all-new
2006 Dodge Charger into its lineup, performance-car aficionados had
a lot to celebrate. The party gets kicked up a notch with the
introduction of the all-new 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8.
With its infusion of Street and Racing Technology (SRT) DNA, the
all-new 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 provides exactly what performance
enthusiasts want in their American muscle sedan: more power,
world-class ride and handling, benchmark braking, functional and
aggressive-looking exterior enhancements and a race-inspired
“The all-new Dodge Charger embodies all of the key attributes of the
Dodge brand – bold, powerful, street-smart and full of life,” said
Darryl Jackson, Vice President, Dodge Marketing, Chrysler Group.
“The all-new 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 builds on the Dodge formula. It
starts with a 425-horsepower 6.1-liter HEMI® engine and continues
with a powerful dose of renowned Street and Racing Technology
performance for a tremendous performance-per-dollar value story.”
During the heyday of the original Dodge Charger, performance was
measured mainly in straight-line numbers. Today, SRT adds a complete
approach with the all-new 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8.
“The SRT approach to performance is multi-dimensional,” said Dan
Knott, Director, Street and Racing Technology, Chrysler Group. “For
example, the 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 incorporates Brembo brakes to
stop as well as it accelerates. Its handling is world-class across a
dynamic range. Its interior is designed specifically for the
performance driver. And its performance exterior characteristics
don’t just look great, they’re also functional.”
As an all-around performer, the all-new 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 is
capable of awe-inspiring numbers unheard-of in a muscle sedan: 0-60
mph in around 5 seconds, quarter-mile time in the 13-second range
and braking distance from 60-0 mph in approximately 110 feet. The
Dodge Charger SRT8 is also capable of accomplishing SRT’s signature
performance test of 0-100-0 mph in the mid 16-second range.
