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).
It has been years since Allpar first reported on the future launch of a new Jeep Wagoneer, and the dropping of the Dodge Caravan. With Wagoneer on the books, Chrysler planners may have had mixed feelings about the sudden success of the Dodge Durango. They wanted to drop the Durango for a more-profitable Wagoneer (essentially a Durango with the Grand Cherokee suspension design [...]
Months after unconfirmed reports made it to Allpar’s pages, the power of Automotive News, in the person of reporter Larry Vellequette, pried a key fact from Chrysler executives — that they cast and build “Ferrari” engines for Maserati. As our sister site pentastars.com reported, the engines are actually cast in Kokomo, and machined in the Trenton Engine plant, using a mixture of [...]
Alfa Romeo will launch the second new car in its attempted comeback next year, on the brand’s 105th anniversary. Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili (roughly, Lombarda car making company) — or ALFA — was born on June 24, 1910. Their next car will be unveiled on June 24, 2015. While Alfa Romeo’s leader, Harald Wester, has said that the company is creating all [...]
The Challenger Hellcat is a hot image car for Dodge, and the brand’s leader has already said he wants to get as many out to the public as possible, suggesting to dealers that they not tack on $10,000 (or higher) surcharges as they did to hot cars in the past — from Vipers to PT Cruisers. While his calls may [...]
The 2015 Chrysler 300C has been inadvertently revealed by Chrysler itself, in an optional image for its navigation systems. As Allpar sources predicted, the car has dropped the chrome underneath the headlamps and moved the Chrysler wings to the top of the grille, but otherwise is rather similar to the current model. The grille has grown to be Audi-oversized in this [...]
