September 1, 2013, Auburn Hills, MI/Chrysler Media - - The 2014 Dodge Challenger SRT offers high-tech performance features to solidify its place as the brand’s ultimate modern American rear-wheel-drive muscle coupe. This 470 horsepower machine promises a balanced performance approach with outstanding straight-line acceleration, world-class ride and handling, high-performance braking and the most up-to-date technologies that deliver more driver excitement and control.
The 2014 Challenger SRT accelerates from 0-60 mph in the high 4-second range; runs the quarter mile in mid-12-second range with the automatic transmission (high 12-second range with the manual); goes from 0-100-0 mph in the low 15s, reaches a top speed of 182 mph with the manual transmission (175 mph with the automatic) and stops from 60-0 mph in just 117 feet.
The 392-cubic inch, 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 470 lb.-ft. (637 Nm) of torque. The torque band is extremely flat allowing for strong standing starts and improved straight-line performance throughout the rpm range. An advanced active intake manifold along with high-lift cam with phasing provides maximum low-end torque and high-end power while still delivering 23 miles per gallon (mpg) on the highway with the standard manual transmission or available automatic transmission. Performance-tuned engine mounts improve idle stability and ride control at all speeds
The 2014 Challenger SRT features a TREMEC TR-6060 six-speed manual transmission and a dual-disc high-performance clutch – a proven performer that was first offered on the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10
New for 2014: a standard launch control system on both manual transmission and automatic transmission equipped models helps maximize straight-line acceleration.
The TREMEC TR-6060 Six-Speed Manual Transmission
When the vehicle is at a complete stop, the driver engages the system by pressing the electronic stability control (ESC) button twice and then depresses the clutch and quickly applies full throttle. Launch control holds the engine at the desired rpm and waits for the driver to release the clutch. Through the SRT-exclusive, Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) screen, the driver can adjust the launch rpm from 2500-4500 in 250 rpm increments, allowing for optimal launches in various conditions. Launch control then uses engine torque management to achieve controlled wheelslip for maximum acceleration up to 62 mph (100 kph).
