Leaked brochure shows 2011 Dodge Challenger power ratings

While Dodge has yet to reveal anything about the 2011 model year versions of its two main muscle cars, the Charger and Challenger, we already know quite a bit about the powerful models.

Now, courtesy of a leaked brochure, the power ratings of the 2011 Dodge Challenger have been revealed.

There will be three versions of the Challenger available, each with specific features and accessories. The starting one is the Challenger with the new 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, capable of 305 HP and 268 lb-ft of torque. This is an increase of 50 HP and 18 lb-ft over the outgoing 3.5-liter model.

Next up we have the Challenger R/T, powered by a 5.7-liter HEMI V8, capable of 379 HP and 410 lb-ft of torque. For those keeping score, a 7 HP and 10 lb-ft increase over the 2010 model year.

At the top of the range, the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 will use a 6.4-liter HEMI V8, with 475 HP and 460 lb-ft of torque, an upgrade of 50 HP and 40 lb-ft over the outgoing SRT8.

Overall, the refreshed Challenger is set to be a worthy opponent to the likes of the Camaro or Mustang. Look forward to more details in the following weeks.
