With customization options, including hood-to-fender stripes, dual
stripes, bodyside stripes, nostalgic paint colors and a choice of
seven different wheel designs, Dodge Challenger sits apart from the
pack and perfectly combines fun, nostalgia and power in one car. New
for 2012, the Challenger lineup has been renamed to give the Dodge
brand an even more consistent product portfolio focused on
performance and value. The Dodge Challenger SXT model and Challenger
SXT Plus package feature the lightweight, aluminum 3.6-liter
Pentastar V-6 engine with 305 horsepower, responsive 268 lb.-ft. of
torque and up to 27 mpg highway. With legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V-8
engines under their hoods, the 2012 Challenger R/T model delivers up
to 375 horsepower, 410 lb.-ft. of torque and 25 mpg highway.
With its world-class ride, power, handling and braking performance,
the 2012 Dodge Challenger now features a world-class 900-watt,
18-speaker premium surround-sound system from Harman Kardon. The
system offers world premier innovations, including a 32-volt
Tracking Power Supply (TPS) 12-channel Class D amplifier that
delivers outstanding acoustics and brings multi-dimensional, quality
sound for all interior occupants.
The new system uses GreenEdge® speaker and amplifier technology to
offer superior sound quality and high Sound Pressure Level (SPL)
outputs with minimum energy consumption. GreenEdge amplifiers alone
outperform traditional amplifier efficiency by up to 55 percent,
representing a net efficiency of more than 90 percent in some cases.
The speakers are tuned for maximum efficiency and are perfectly
matched to the amplifier output.
Available on Dodge Challenger SXT Plus package and the R/T model
with five-speed Auto Stick transmission are all-new die-cast zinc
steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters that enable even more
spirited driving. Race-inspired with precision feel, Challenger’s
all-new paddle shifters are ergonomically located behind the sporty
thick-rimmed three-spoke Dodge steering wheel for maximum control.
