The 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8® builds on the excitement of the return of the Challenger by offering an all-new six-speed manual transmission option, a limited-slip differential and a classic B5 Blue exterior that harkens back to the original Dodge Challenger.
“The 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 builds on the enthusiasm that started with the 2008 model, thanks to a host of new features designed to delight pure driving enthusiasts,” said Mike Accavitti, Director – Dodge Brand and SRT Global Marketing, Chrysler LLC. “While staying true to the original Challenger formula, Dodge and SRT have added a six-speed manual transmission, a limited-slip differential, new colors, a new look for the hood stripes and a classic ‘pistol-grip’ shifter. The result is a Dodge muscle car packed with modern amenities and features any enthusiast will love.”
Developed by Chrysler’s in-house performance engineering organization, Street and Racing Technology, the 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 was engineered with a focus on the five pillars of every SRT vehicle: bold exterior design that resonates with the brand image, a race-inspired interior, world-class ride and handling across a dynamic range, a standout powertrain and benchmark braking.
“At SRT, we take pride in always engineering benchmark performance, and then building on it, never resting on our laurels,” said Kipp Owen, Director – SRT Engineering. “With a limited-slip differential and a new six-speed manual transmission in the 2009 Challenger SRT8, we’ve proven once again that SRT always raises the bar in the performance vehicle marketplace.”
