POWERHOUSE POWERTRAIN

Depending on the model you choose, Dodge Challenger offers three exceptional engines - the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 - named one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines; the legendary 5.7L HEMI® V8 with Fuel Saver Technology; and the 6.4L 392 cubic inch SRT® HEMI V8, standard on the Dodge Challenger SRT8®. This HEMI engine delivers 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.

Transmissions

For 2012, Challenger offers two transmissions - the proven standard AutoStick five-speed automatic and the available TREMEC® six-speed manual.

The five-speed automatic features new available steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters that work in tandem with the center console shifter, allowing for spirited shifting.

The TREMEC six-speed manual transmission delivers precision within the tightest tolerances.

VARIABLE VALVE TIMING

All three Challenger engines feature state-of-the-art dual Variable Valve Timing on the exhaust valves to improve fuel economy and refinement, and maximize performance.

Variable valve timing improves fuel economy+ + + + + two ways.

  • It reduces the engine’s pumping energy requirements by closing the intake valve later
  • It allows the engine to recycle energy instead of rejecting it as heat

Variable valve timing improves engine breathing, which improves efficiency and power.

  • FUEL SAVER TECHNOLOGY

    Performance with a conscience: Fuel Saver Technology allows the 5.7L HEMI V8 and the 6.4L SRT HEMI V8 to switch from eight cylinders to four under light loads in highway traffic or during cruising - delivering greater fuel efficiency+ +. It utilizes sensors to detect when full power isn’t necessary and shuts off four of the eight cylinders, creating the perfect balance between jaw-dropping performance and responsible efficiency.

    Variable Valve Timing is also part of the Fuel Saver Technology that helps to make Challenger’s engines even more efficient+ + + + +.
