September 1, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - With record sales last year, including the best sales months since the reintroduction of the Challenger in 2008, the Dodge brand’s performance icon continues to deliver exactly what muscle car enthusiasts want – a powerful and efficient engine lineup, iconic muscle-car design with numerous personalization packages and now the availability of the performance suspension and brake systems across all models – all executed with quality and precision.
Redline style provides Challenger with a contemporary muscle-car appearance For the 2014 Dodge Challenger lineup, the Rallye Redline and R/T Redline variants add even more attitude and style with a right-from-the-factory custom look to the brand’s iconic coupe.
Challenger Rallye RedlineBased on the 2014 Dodge Challenger SXT Plus, the Challenger Rallye Redline model adds even more ‘bad boy’ attitude and head-turning style to the brand’s iconic coupe. Flanking the center of the Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline’s performance hood scoops, roof and deck lid is its signature Redline Red stripe with two thin side stripes for added detail. A body-color deck-lid spoiler adds to the performance look, while continuing the Redline Red triple stripe pattern at the center. Filling the wheel wells, the Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline features 20-inch Black Chrome wheels with a Redline Red lip and inner backbone for a one-of-a-kind look. In addition, P245/45R20 performance tires with a performance suspension and brakes provide improved handling, while a 3.07 rear-axle ratio (up from 2.65) improves acceleration performance.
Challenger R/T RedlineBased on the 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T – America’s most affordable V-8 muscle car – or R/T Plus, the new Challenger R/T Redline adds even more attitude and style with a right-from-the-factory custom look. Following Dodge Challenger’s signature A-line bodyside character line, an all-new two-color Redline Red and Graphite stripe runs from behind the front wheel arches to the tail. For a distinctive look, the rear-quarter section of the stripe features the “Redline” name in Red over Graphite color scheme. The R/T Redline also features a body-color grille surround and unique 20-inch Black Chrome wheels with a Redline Red lip and inner backbone.
Dodge Challenger Redline models feature a Dark Slate Gray interior with Dark Slate Gray (R/T) performance seats in cloth or premium Nappa leather performance seats in Radar Red or Dark Slate Gray (Rallye Redline and R/T Plus). Automatic transmission models also feature die-cast steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, sport mode, bright pedals, a Mopar T-Handle shifter and remote start.
More performance and value: Super Sport and Sinister Super Sport GroupsIn addition to offering the Challenger R/T – the most affordable V-8 muscle car in America, with a U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at $30,495 – the Dodge brand is going one step further for 2014 offering more bang-for-the-buck with the addition of the Super Sport and Sinister Super Sport Groups on the entry-level 305 horsepower Challenger SXT model.
The Super Sport Group includes larger and wider 20 x 8.0-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels with stickier P245/45R20 all-season performance tires, a quicker 3.07 rear-axle ratio, die-cast steering- wheel mounted paddle shifters, sport mode, performance steering, brakes and suspension and a rear body-color spoiler. And for those who like the Dodge brand’s signature “blacked out” look, the Sinister Super Sport Group utilizes the same hardware, but with 20 x 8.0-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels with matching center caps.
Additionally, Dodge Challenger SXT Plus, Rallye Redline and R/T models now include the availability of projector-beam high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps for improved night-time visibility and a whiter illumination color for a more technical look.
High-impact heritage hues keep it hotLike all Dodge muscle cars, the Challenger is known for rocking some of the most recognizable paint colors in the automotive world. The 2014 model year continues this tradition by bringing TorRed and Plum Crazy heritage paint hues back into production. In addition, Header Orange and Redline 3 Coat return and join Jazz Blue, and two new Tri-coats: Ivory Tri-coat and Phantom Black Tri-coat Pearl.
Track-proven Challenger R/T Blacktop The 2014 Challenger R/T Blacktop, available on the Challenger R/T – America’s most affordable V-8 muscle car – and R/T Plus, adds sinister style to the Dodge brand’s iconic muscle car. Available in Pitch Black, Granite Crystal or Billet Silver Metallic, the Dodge Challenger R/T Blacktop model includes Gloss Black 20-inch aluminum wheels with Gloss Black center caps, Gloss Black grille surround, Gloss Black fuel door and a new matte graphite body stripe with red edge accents running from the front to rear fascia, creating a truly one-of-a-kind appearance
Powering the Dodge Challenger R/T Blacktop is the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine with cold-air induction delivering up to 375 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque, and it’s mated to a track-proven Tremec six-speed manual transmission (or available five-speed automatic).
In addition to its performance-tuned suspension, disc brakes and steering calibration, the Dodge Challenger R/T Blacktop also includes the Super Track Pak, with high-performance-steering gear, brake linings and monotube-shock absorbers, P245/45R20 Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car three-season tires and three-mode electronic stability control (ESC) with “full off” mode. All-season tires are available at no extra charge. The Dodge Challenger Blacktop Package is available for a U.S. MSRP of only $1,995. Award-winning powertrain lineupThe Dodge Challenger SXT, SXT Plus and Rallye Redline model’s standard award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine features a cold-air induction system and dual exhausts from the headers back to the exhaust tips for maximum output. The result is 305 track-ready horsepower at 6,350 rpm and a responsive 268 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,800 rpm. The engine’s torque exceeds 90 percent of its peak value from 1,800 to 6,400 rpm, which provides outstanding drivability and responsiveness. Thanks to its all-aluminum design, the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine provides the Dodge Challenger with a 52 / 48 front-to-rear weight distribution for improved balance and handling.
Enabling even more spirited driving with its five-speed Auto Stick transmission are die-cast zinc steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters and Sport Mode included on Challenger Rallye Redline and packaged with the Super Sport Group and Sinister Super Sport Groups on Dodge Challenger SXT and SXT Plus. Race-inspired with precision feel, these steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters are ergonomically located behind the sporty thick-rimmed three-spoke Dodge steering wheel for maximum control.
For the performance enthusiast, the 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T, R/T Plus and R/T Classic models feature the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine, which delivers up to 375 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque and gets up to 25 miles per gallon (mpg) (with automatic transmission). When paired with the highly refined Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission, the Dodge Challenger R/T delivers smooth shifts, while delivering even more power through unique performance-tuned dual exhaust and under-floor mufflers with low-restriction bottle resonators. The result: 0-60 mph runs in the mid-5-second range and a sinister exhaust growl for the cars left in its rearview mirror – a trademark of the original Challenger HEMI from more than 44-years ago.
The Dodge Challenger R/T, R/T Plus and R/T Classic models with optional five-speed automatic transmission produce 372 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque and include innovative Fuel Saver Technology to seamlessly transition to high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and V-8 mode when more power is in demand. For even more control, steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters and Sport Mode are included.
