More production Challenger news

Last Updated:

The first batch of 5500 cars will start production in March 2008.
All models will be SRT/8. V8 only.

But after that, starting in July 2008, more models will be introduced.
Including a 3.5 Liter V6 and the 2 V8s, 5.7 Liter and 6.1 Liter. And a 6 speed manual will then be available as well.

I think these are all good news. Tha availablity of a V6 means the car won’t just be some expensive toy. But a real competitor to the Mustang and Camaro.

  1. That spot’s already filled by the Monte Carlo….

    Unlike the Challenger which means business……at least Chrysler grew a brain when it came to putting in the 3.5 V6

  2. I’m no fan of Chrystler, but this car looks really good. I’m glad they kept it true to the prototype. Man, between this and the new Camaro, Mustang is gonna have some problems. Time to start thinking about updating Ford. Don’t leave it the same for the next 15 years. Independent rear suspension, larger multivalve engines with variable valve timing and lift, 6 speed manual/automatic transmissions for starters would be good for starters. I like the Mustang, but Ford can’t afford to let the Mustang slide down the slippery slope of competition.
