2008 Dodge Charger SRT8

2008 Dodge Charger SRT8 - The Family Muscle Sedan.

The 2008 Dodge Charger SRT8® packages all of the features and amenities expected of an excellent family sedan combined with benchmark performance delivered by Chrysler Group’s Street and Racing Technology (SRT) vehicles.

For the Dodge Charger SRT8, key SRT ingredients include 6.1-liter, 425-horsepower HEMI power, world-class ride and handling, benchmark braking, functional and aggressive-looking exterior enhancements, and a race-inspired interior. The all-around performance of the 2008 Dodge Charger SRT8 is outstanding for a muscle sedan: 0-60 mph in the low 5-second range, quarter-mile time in under 14 seconds, braking distance from 60-0 mph in approximately 110 feet and 0.89 g on the skid pad. The Dodge Charger SRT8 also accomplishes SRT’s signature performance test of 0-100-0 mph in less than 17 seconds.

The functional performance of the Dodge Charger SRT8 is reflected in its exterior. The front fascia integrates ducts that help direct fresh air to cool the brakes, and an air dam to reduce lift. The hood is equipped with a scoop to funnel cool air into the engine compartment. The rear fascia features integrated lower strakes to direct air flow, and aggressive cutouts to accommodate dual 3.5-inch exhaust tips. A dramatic deck-lid spoiler set on dual stanchions increases downforce for high-speed stability and traction.

Available exterior colors for the 2008 Dodge Charger SRT8 are Bright Silver Metallic, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl Coat, Steel Blue Metallic Clear Coat and TorRed. Race-inspired interior appointments in the 2008 Dodge Charger SRT8 start with the available SRT-exclusive Reconfigurable Display (RCD). Additional interior enhancements for 2008 include new dark slate gray interior color with agate-color accent stitching, carbon-fiber leather-trim door handles and carbon-fiber leather-trim steering wheel, and LED lighting in the front cup holders and front and rear door-map pockets.

Befitting its high-performance character, the 2008 Dodge Charger SRT8 continues to provide power-adjustable, deeply sculpted and highly bolstered sport seats in the front, fitted with performance suede inserts to hold occupants during maneuvering. Rear seats have matching performance suede inserts. Full instrumentation includes a 180-mph speedometer, a tachometer and a coolant temperature gauge. A light-emitting-diode (LED) display within the gauge cluster is driver-configurable for oil temperature, oil pressure and tire pressure readouts.

The 2008 Dodge Charger SRT8’s 425-horsepower, normally aspirated 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 produces 420 lb.-ft of torque, achieved by displacement, increasing the compression ratio, and redesigning the cylinder head and intake and exhaust systems for better flow and increased engine speed (versus the 5.7-liter HEMI).

Power for the SRT 6.1-liter HEMI is channeled through a five-speed automatic transmission with specially calibrated, driver-selectable Auto Stick, which offers fully automatic or manual shifting selection. Chassis setup on the 2008 Dodge Charger SRT8 includes SRT-tuned dampers, tailored spring rates and suspension bushings, and large-diameter anti-sway bars. For added stability and aerodynamic benefit, the ride height of the 2008 Dodge Charger SRT8 is one-half inch lower than the Dodge Charger. Handling is engineered for performance with an Electronic Stability Program (ESP) tuned for the 2008 Dodge Charger SRT8.

The 2008 Dodge Charger SRT8 rides on 20-inch aluminum, SRT-designed wheels. A new 20-inch polished, forged-aluminum wheel is available for all 2008 Dodge SRT8 models. Benchmark braking performance comes from Brembo four-piston brake calipers on all four wheels, gripping a vented disc – 360 mm x 32 mm up front, with 350 mm x 26 mm in the rear.

Enhancing the total driving experience, is the available Kicker premium sound system with driver-selectable surround sound for all audio inputs. For rear-seat passengers entertainment all-new SIRIUS BackSeat TV™ system is available. SIRIUS Backseat TV features three channels of respected children’s TV from the most well-known kids’ programming: Nickelodeon, Disney Channel and Cartoon Network. SIRIUS Backseat TV operates via an in-vehicle satellite video receiver and two small roof-mounted antennas.
