At the Chicago Auto Show, a special version of Dodge vehicles is on display, five of which are R/T editions. One of these is the Challenger R/T that brings more power and flavor to the lineup. Powering this model is the 5.7l HEMI V8 engine, which delivers up to 376hp and 556 Nm of torque. The engine is controlled via a Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission and delivers 25 mpg highway.
With the five-speed automatic transmission, the engine delivers 372hp and 542 Nm of torque, with the same mileage rating.
When it comes to the exterior, the muscle car has been given a restyled trapezoidal front air dam with a larger opening and a larger “duck bill” front spoiler in black.
For the interior, the R/T is offered with leather-wrapped thick-rimmed three-spoke Dodge steering wheel (complete with back-lit cruise, Electronic Vehicle Information Center and Uconnect Voice Command controls), race-inspired instrument panel with four-bomb gauge cluster and a four-line display EVIC with trip and multimedia information from the Media Center radio.
Longer travels will be more comfortable with the new Challenger R/T that has been fitted with redesigned seat structures with improved cushioning, more comfortable contours, power lumbar and better access to the rear seats.
