The 2013 Dodge Challenger R/T Redline will debut at the Chicago Auto Show this month. It expands on the 2012 V6 Challenger Rallye Redline. The special-edition Challenger has a one-of-a-kind appearance, 375-horsepower Hemi V8, and performance-tuned suspension.
Redline Red and Graphite stripes run from behind the front wheel arches to the rear end, with “Redline” in red on the rear-quarter portion of the stripe. The four available body colors include Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Bright White, and Pitch Black. Black chrome 20-inch wheels with a Redline Red lip are standard.
Challenger Redline boasts the 375-horsepower 5.7-liter Hemi V8 paired with a Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission. A five-speed automatic transmission is also available with the 372-horsepower 5.7-liter Hemi V8; this version has economy mode and paddle shifters with “sport mode.”
An available Super Track Pak adds Goodyear Eagle F1 P245/45R20 three-season performance tires, lowered ride height, and high-performance brake linings.
Challenger Redline includes all the standard features of the 2013 Challenger R/T, including Uconnect, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, R/T grille and Hemi hood badges, and rear body-color deck-lid spoiler.
The Redline Group is already available for ordering and arrives at dealerships in April. Challenger R/Ts equipped with the package have an MSRP of $31,990; R/T Plus models are $33,990 (both excluding $995 destination charge).

Though the Ram 1500 just had major upgrades, another refresh is due in 2017, to deal with the new F-150s and a possible Chevrolet Silverado update. So far not much is known about these trucks, except that they will likely include the Pentastar engine upgrade, might include the rumored 5.7 Hemi V8 upgrade, and are likely to have undergone weight reduction therapy [...]
With the supercharged 6.2 Hemi delivering 707 horsepower to the Dodge Charger and Challenger, the Viper boys are reportedly looking for ways to get back on top. While the Viper may be superior on a tight racing course, the straight-line performance of Charger and Challenger, in five-seaters with all the amenities, large trunks, and automatic or manual transmissions, is a challenge for Team [...]
Artist suzq044 has provided an alternative view of what the 2017 Ram may look like. This refresh will counter new F-150s.
