In 2008 the iconic Dodge Challenger made its return after a 35 year absence.  Staying true to the Challenger heritage while delivering all the modern amenities one would expect, it was "race inspired, street legal."  Powered by the 6.1 Liter HEMIŪ V8 engine that produced 425 horsepower and 420 lb.ft. of torque.  Each of the Challenger SRT8's featured limited edition, numbered dash plaques.

Dodge offered the limited -edition 2008 Challenger SRT8's in three colors: HEMIŪ Orange, Bright Silver Metallic and Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl Coat.  All were equipped with Carbon Fiber inspired hood stripes.  They were assembled in the Brampton, Ontario, Canada plant. 

The performance targets for the Challenger were to include a 0-60 time in the low 5-second range, 0-100-0 in less than 17 seconds, a 1/4 mile time of less than 14 seconds, a 60-0 mph braking distance of approximately 100 feet, and a skid pad performance of 0.88g.

The actual numbers came in slightly different with a 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds, and a 1/4 mile time of 13.1 seconds at 108.3 mph.  The 60-0 mph distance came in slightly over at 117 ft.  Skid Pad performance rang in at 0.87g (avg).

The 2008 sales figures show approximate numbers of 17,423 Challengers sold domestically in the US and only 1631 sold into Canada.


The 2009 model year saw the introduction of the V6 - 3.5 Liter SE version of the Challenger.  Also new to the family were 3 variants of the 5.7L HEMIŪ, including the new R/T version with variable cam timing.  2009 also introduced the first available manual transmission variant. 

The SE version came with a SOHC 3.5L V-6 rated at 250 horsepower and 250lb. ft. of torque.  The only transmission choice was the 4 speed automatic giving it an EPA rating of 18 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.

The R/T model sported the signature 5.7 Liter overhead valve HEMIŪ V8.  Paired with the standard 5-speed automatic with AutoStick, the R/T generated 372 HP and 401 lb. ft. of torque.  Also included was MDS technology that allowed 4 cylinders to turn off to save gas and increase the EPA rating to 16 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. A Track Pak version was also available and came with the optional 6-speed manual transmission and produced a slightly higher 375 HP and 410 lb. ft. of torque.  This in turn dropped it's EPA rating to 14 mpg city and 22 mpg highway.

The SRT8 version came equipped with the 6.1L OHV HEMIŪ.  Producing 425 HP at 6200 rpm and 420 lb. ft. of torque at 4800 rpm.  Required was 91 octane fuel.  It was optioned with the automatic or the Track Pak 6-speed manual gear box.  EPA ratings dropped further with the SRT8 version to 13 mpg city and 19 mpg highway.

The 2009 sales figures show approximate numbers of 25,852 Challengers sold domestically in the US and 2660 sold into Canada.

Being only the third iteration, the 2010 model year came with minor changes.  Stability control became a standard option on the SE model and steering wheel mounted audio controls became packaged with the UConnect MultiMedia and UConnect Navigation packages. 

R/T models received automatic headlamps and LED accent lighting on the interior.

All three motor options were still available as well as the 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission.

The 2010 sales figures showed continuing growth with an approximate 36,791 Challengers sold domestically in the US and 3097 sold into Canada.
