Aggressive and Functional Exterior
Exterior styling of the 2012 Dodge
Challenger SRT8 392 remains unmistakably Dodge, with proportions that continue
to evoke a bold, instantly recognizable performance coupe that has a wide,
stable stance on the road.
The large front splitter and integrated front
fender spats and body color rear decklid spoiler provide stable high-speed
aerodynamics and overall balance while the front fascia chin spoiler also
improves aerodynamics and is accented in black for a more aggressive look. The
front grille features a bright grille surround.
For 2012, available
exterior colors include: Bright Silver, Bright White, Header Orange, Pitch
Black, Redline Red and Tungsten Metallic. Dual, full-body stripes are available
in black, grey metallic, red and silver metallic.
Unique "392 HEMI"
badges flank both fenders touting the historically significant V-8 engine that
remains true to its high-performance roots and powers the highest rated
Challenger in terms of horsepower and torque ratings. From the rear, the 4-inch
rectangular exhaust tips deliver the 392's performance exhaust note while adding
the styling cue of a serious muscle car.
Race-Inspired and Interior
The race-inspired interior begins with a new, leather wrapped, heated,
SRT-exclusive steering wheel that features a unique satin chrome rim section
with a flattened bottom surface that showcases the SRT logo. The optional
automatic transmission includes paddle shift controls on both sides of the new
contoured palm rests. All audio and Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)
controls are accessible from the horizontal spokes on the steering wheel.
The trapezoidal instrument panel features a four-bomb gauge cluster with
chromed accent rings and unique SRT graphics. Inside the cluster, the
SRT-exclusive Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) with performance
pages provides the driver with trip information, multimedia information from the
Media Center radio, along with instant feedback on 0-60 mph time, 60-0 mph
braking, G-forces, one-eighth mile and quarter-mile times.
lumbar-equipped front seats are standard. The driver's seat features seatback
tilt with memory and an easy to reach release handle, while the front-passenger
seat adds tilt and slide with memory, which makes it even easier for passengers
to get in and out of the back seat.
Interior color combinations include
Dark Slate Gray, and new for 2012 Radar Red/Dark Slate Gray, which adds color to
the seats, door bolsters and rear seat armrest.
