The Challenger needs 525+ HP and 500+ TQ to make up for it's weight if we're gonna start comparing numbers with the other two.

Any word on which (if any) of these new goodies can be directly retro-fitted into 2009 and 2010 Challengers (like a drivers seat swap or a new head unit swap or even a steering wheel or dashboard swap...)?

You stated in another thread:

"2011 model year is the mid-point. Challenger= 2008-2009-2010-2011-2012-2013-2014. "

What exactly does that mean?
Challenger is on an End of Life track already?
It's due for a major redesign in 2015?

When does the fate of the 2015 Challenger get decided?
(Funding, design, tooling, etc., etc. all require a certain lead time.)

Thanks.

FWIW here's a spy shot of the 2011 Charger interior (including the new steering wheel). Since everyone is saying the Chally interior will be extensively revised, I would expect it to be some variation of this (just like the current one is similar to the Charger's). Just a minimally-educated guess on my part, so take it FWIW.

Oh boy, I sure hope the Challenger keeps the 4 gauge pod and dash design more in line how it is now..

No worries. As per my info in post # 1, gauge pod is the same just the faces have been revised.

RS,

After comparing the specs between the 6.1L and the crate 6.4L, really, it just looks like the 6.4L is a stroked 6.1L. Different push rods, and a new cam designed specifically for MDS.

Is the reason we don't have hp/tq #'s partially because they are finalizing testing or they just not being released to create buzz?

ResumeSpeed what about the SRT8 wheels? Will they be redesigned? Will there be a chrome wheel option like the R/T's have? What about wider wheels for the rear?

Thanks, Rob

It would also be interesting if the gearing is switched in the rear, such as a 3.55 or 3.73 option like the mustang is offering. This would definitely help get the challenger into the mid and low 1/4 mile 12s

I thought the new 6.4 was based on the 5.7, not the 6.1?
