Dodge said that its new 2012 Challenger Rallye Redline is priced at $28,745. The new package is a tuned Challenger SXT Plus, which is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that delivers up to 305hp. Typically, an SXT would begin at $24,995 but the additional $3,750 provides a list of go-fast parts that seek to make driving more enjoyable.
Performance updates can be seen through the chassis and drivetrain, one of which is a cold air intake that boosts airflow to the engine. The new front and rear sway bars stiffen the chassis and supposedly makes the car more corner-capable. Rallye Redline edition has 42% firmer monotube shocks in the front and 22% in the rear.
The 2.65:1 rear axle ratio was replaced with a livelier 3.06:1 unit which means acceleration will feel stronger. Braking power comes from larger two-piston calipers at the front and larger vented disc brakes all around.
From its name, the car receives a centre racing stripe with two smaller lines that run parallel over the car’s length. It gets 20-inch aluminum alloys covered in Firestone Firehawk all-season performance tires, in order to replace the standard 18-inch wheels.
It also has a thick red line that emphasizes the outer edge. The Rallye Redline is a modified version of the SXT Plus and is equipped with the same list of standard features such as heated in the front, bluetooth cellphone connectivity, and electronic stability control.
