2009 Dodge Challenger R/T  

0 评论

A modern musclecar, the 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T has 6.4 inches more wheelbase and six inches more overall length than the 1970, making it full-size by almost any measure. Because it shares the Chrysler 300/Dodge Charger's tall firewall, the Challenger is longer than those two sedans, despite a four-inch cut in its wheelbase. The Challenger had to be long to maintain its elegant, retro-futuristic proportions, right down to its long overbite/underbite grille and serious blind-spot C-pillars. If you're one of the purists who complained the Charger shouldn't have four doors, your coupe has arrived.

Reasonable purists will like the optional Tremec T6060 six-speed manual, adapted from the Viper, but with light, smooth clutch-pedal action. The six-speed is available on the R/T and SRT only; the V-6 SE comes with a four-speed automatic. The manual has triple-cone synchros in first and second, double-cones in the remaining gears. It's a satisfying gearbox, worth selecting over the automatic (five-speed in SRTs and R/Ts) just for its modern, ergonomic take on the original's pistol-grip shifter.
