Chrysler Group has finally announced pricing for the 2012 Dodge Challenger, as well as for other three models in the SRT8 lineup. The 2012 Challenger comes a little bit cheaper than the new Charger. The price for the 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 starts at $44,820.
The 2012 Dodge Challenger as well as the new Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 models will be offered with a new 470 hp 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine. However, not only the power is improved by Chrysler. The automaker also makes its new Challenger more efficient. The company has introduced the power unit, which works in combination with the cylinder deactivation technology. The name of the system speaks for itself. When driving at freeway speeds, four out of eight cylinders will be shut down. This in its turn will help to improve the fuel efficiency.
The automaker will start producing this new model in the mid of July. The delivery to the dealerships is scheduled for the third quarter.
