Auburn Hills, Mich., Jun 9, 2008 - Dodge announced pricing today for the all-new 2009 Dodge Challenger. The U.S. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) will start at $21,995, which includes $675 for destination. Dodge dealers across the country are now taking orders for the 2009 Dodge Challenger, which will arrive this fall.

"The all-new 2009 Dodge Challenger gives customers a modern-day muscle machine at an incredible value," said Mike Accavitti, Director – Dodge Brand and SRT Global Marketing, Chrysler LLC. "For less than $22,000, we've brought Dodge Challenger back and loaded it with head-snapping styling and cutting-edge technology."

The Dodge Challenger is the first five-passenger two-door coupe produced from the Company's proven rear-wheel-drive platform that delivers the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300. Developed with Dodge's credo of "bold, powerful and capable," the 2009 Dodge Challenger is available in three models featuring head-turning styling, three available engine options and an automatic or manual transmission.

The 2009 Dodge Challenger has several modern amenities available including uconnect gps with navigation system and real-time traffic, uconnect phone featuring Bluetooth® technology, uconnect studios with SIRIUS Satellite Radio, Remote Start and Keyless Go push-button start. In addition, the Dodge Challenger has more than 25 safety and security features including supplemental side-curtain air bags, Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Brake Assist, Traction Control, automatic headlamps, tire pressure monitoring and Hill-Start Assist in Dodge Challengers with the six-speed manual transmission.

Three models are available in the United States: Dodge Challenger SE, Dodge Challenger R/T and Dodge Challenger SRT8®.

With a U.S. MSRP of $21,995 (including $675 destination), the Dodge Challenger SE comes standard with a 3.5-liter High Output V-6 engine which produces 250 horsepower (186 kW) and 250 lb.-ft.

Thats good news, I ordered a base R/T and was hoping with a couple of grand off MSRP that it would come in under $30,000.

if I could get the T/A replica package seen before, I'd have it with the R/T. 370hp a little less than 400lbft for a rounded $30k. It's the most powerful car under 30gees.

But I'm wondering why did the SRT price go up??

Do you think that the pricing on the SRT8 is including the Gas-Guzzler tax?

Probably not.

the base price is $39,320.00 plus $675.00 shipping, and $2100.00 gas guzzler

so that adds up to $42,095.00 for an SRT base model

I estimate
950 Sunroof
1295 My GiG
1000 for SRT option II (kicker)
100 tire upgrade

Because Dodge knows that we will pay it. :ugh2:

I'm waiting for a convertible...Any thoughts on that? It's available on the Mustang! If we are in a pony car war, Dodge has to compete. Too bad they will never resurrect the Barracuda. I had a 74 Barracuda in the late 70's and miss that car!

Playboy article on Challenger

W hen Dodge unveiled the Challenger concept car two years ago at the Detroit auto show, we couldn't wait to get our hands on the production model. And here she finally is, a badass broad with big hips and a 425 bhp 6.1-liter Hemi V8 -- good old-fashioned Detroit iron. Dodge stylists stashed a 1970 model in the studio for reference, and the influence is obvious: the chopped top, the outside filler cap and those hips we mentioned. If you don't remember the original Challenger, rent the highway epic Vanishing Point (1971) and crank the volume.

The 2009 Challenger SRT8 rolls into showrooms this month. We hustled a Challenger around California's Willow Springs Raceway, and for a two-ton car, this baby can boogie. With sharp steering input and scads of power (zero to 60 in 5.1 seconds), the Challenger runs like a scalded dog with a delicious rap from its twin exhausts. It may look retro cool, but there's little retro about the technology built in. The ABS/ESP system features a lateral g-force sensor that knows when you're accelerating out of a hot corner and gets the brakes primed without intervening. A slick-shifting five-speed auto stick lets you flick through gears with ease (a six-speed Viper-derived automatic is also available, along with a six-speed manual with a "pistol-grip" shifter). Should you get up near this ride's 170 mph top speed, the enormous Brembo disc brakes will come in handy. Dodge has wrapped Goodyear Eagle performance rubber around the 20-inch alloy wheels.





The fun starts with a gutsy, AMG-exclusive, 518-bhp, 6.2-liter V-8, linked to a seven-speed MCT (multi-clutch technology) gearbox. A discrete dial alongside the console shifter offers a wealth of transmission settings. Select from C (comfort), S (sport), S+ (seriously sporty) and M (manual) to dial your shift speed. The 200-millisecond C-setting is fine for heavy traffic, but you'll prefer to play in sport, with shift times that are 20 percent quicker. S+ is 40 percent faster still, and for serious driving, the manual setting holds your selected gear all the way to the V-8's snarling 7,200 rpm redline, unless you shift first (paddles, naturally). For downshifts, a lightning-quick automatic throttle blip minimizes shift shock.





As for the interior, we love the sinister black-on-black leather, replete with aluminum accents and a four-bomb analog gauge panel -- pure old school. Go for the optional Kicker 13-speaker audio system with a 322-watt amp and a booming 200 watt subwoofer.

Does the world need another Mopar car that can fly that fast at 13.1 miles a gallon? If the idea of $2,100 gas-guzzler tax scares you, opt for the tamer Challenger with a 370-bhp 5.7 liter Hemi V8 or the 250-bhp 3.5 liter V6. You'll still get the badass looks, but you'll pass the pumps a little more often. The big-engined SRT8s are going fast; figure on about $42,000.

The 2009 prices will be less than those on the limited edition 2008s. Although some dealers are trying to get market adjustments for their 2009s, the supporting vendors on this forum are taking orders for MSRP or less.

If you want an SRT, however, you better order soon. If not, you will have to find one on a dealer's lot and pay more.
