2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8
There is no rule that says you have to give up utility for high performance.
But if there were such a rule, the all-new 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8 would break
it. "Dodge Magnum is bold, powerful, street-smart and
full of life," said Darryl Jackson, Vice President of
Dodge Marketing. "With a 425-horsepower 6.1-liter HEMI engine up front, and 71.6
square feet of cargo space in the rear, the 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8 hauls in more
ways than one." (continued below)

"At Dodge, the HEMI continues to resonate with our customers," added Jackson.
"The current take-rate for HEMI in the Dodge Magnum is 43 percent. The new SRT
6.1-liter HEMI quenches the thirst for even more power."
Street and Racing Technology (SRT) engineers began with a solid foundation - the
2006 Dodge Magnum - and successfully injected SRT DNA in order to produce a
vehicle that can cover a quarter mile in the high 13-second range and haul home
a brand-new 27-inch TV.
'From the day it was introduced, the Dodge Magnum screamed performance,' said
Dan Knott, Director, Street and Racing Technology, Chrysler Group. 'Now, SRT
engineering and the 6.1-liter HEMI will take Magnum to the next level.'
The 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8 offers key SRT attributes in ride and handling across
a dynamic range, benchmark braking, performance-inspired interior appointments
and exterior styling, as well as the raw performance of SRT's big-bore version
of the HEMI engine.
Performance numbers for the all-new 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8 include a 0-60 mph
time in the low five-second range and 60-0 mph braking in approximately 110
feet. Capable of covering a quarter-mile in the high 13-second range, the Dodge
Magnum SRT8 can accomplish SRT's signature performance test of 0-100-0 mph in
the mid 16-second range.
2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8 Powertrain
The new 6.1-liter SRT version of the legendary HEMI engine was inspired by the
original family of HEMIs - particularly the namesake hemispherical combustion
chambers that provide power and efficiency and select visual cues, including the
classic orange-painted cylinder block and black valve covers.
