By YouCar

The 2012 Dodge Challenger delivers exactly what muscle car enthusiasts want — a powerful and efficient engine lineup, a performance suspension designed for maximum grip, and athletic head-turning styling — all executed with quality and precision. 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 (227 kW), responsive 268 lb.-ft. (363 N•m) 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 (280 kW), 410 lb.-ft. (556 N•m) 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. 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.
