The iconic 2013 Dodge Challenger RT Redline will be equipped with HEMI®-power, red-hot exterior accents and performance suspension, has been announced by Chrysler. In addition, the model will run on signature 20-inch Black Chrome wheels featuring a Redline Red accented lip and backbone.
To be more precise, the unit under the hood is the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 which is able to generate up to 375 horsepower (276 kW) and 410 lb-ft (303 Nm) torque and will be matched with a six-speed manual transmission, or paddle-shifting and driver adaptable automatic transmission.
Furthermore, the new two-color Redline Red and Graphite stripe runs from behind the front wheel arches to the tail. The visual stance of the muscle car becomes even more distinctive thanks to the rear-quarter section of the stripe which includes the “Redline” name in Red over Graphite color scheme. Additionally, there is also a body-color grille surround.
On the other hand the aforementioned 20-inch Black Chrome wheels with a Redline Red lip and inner backbone are there to deliver more performance and driving precision because they are matched with Super Track Pak adds Goodyear Eagle F1 P245/45R20 three-season performance tires. Adding to the enhanced performance are the high-performance brake linings and a lowered ride height.
What also concerns the exterior styling of this Dodge model is that it is going to be offered in four different colors: Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Bright White and Pitch Black. In terms of interior, it includes a Dark Slate Gray interior with Dark Slate Gray (R/T) performance seats, or premium Nappa leather performance seats in Radar Red or Dark Slate Gray (R/T Plus). For those who have made the choice of automatic transmission models, their cars will feature bright pedals, a Mopar® T-Handle shifter and remote start.
More importantly, this special edition Challanger RT will draw its power from a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine. Thanks to the latter, the car is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in under five seconds. For even more control, steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters with “sport mode” transmission calibration are included.
The level ot standard equipment is huge: performance-tuned suspension, performance-disc brakes, performance-tuned steering calibration, Uconnect Voice Command with Bluetooth, console-mounted USB port with iPod control and auxiliary audio input jack, SiriusXM Satellite Radio with 12-months subscription, automatic headlamps, LED-illuminated instrument cluster with 160-mph primary speedometer, instrument panel with mini-carbon bezel, fog lamps, “R/T” grille badge, “HEMI” hood badges and rear body-color deck-lid spoiler, remote start, bright pedals and Mopar T-handle shifter.
The additional equipment includes the following: premium Nappa leather seating in Dark Slate Gray or Radar Red, heated front seats, six Boston Acoustics premium speakers with 276-watt amplifier, ParkSense rear park assist, power heated mirrors, Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) with temperature gauge, location specific tire-pressure monitoring and compass, vehicle security alarm, and HomeLink universal transceiver.
The Redline extension will be available on R/T and R/T Plus models. It will be priced at $31 990 MSRP and can be found at dealerships in the beginning of April.
