Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline Adds Sporty Looks to V6 Engine

Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline Adds Sporty Looks to V6 Engine

Dodge is building the special edition Challenger Rallye Redline for buyers who want a sporty looking Challenger but do not care about the Hemi V8. 

The Redline package adds most obviously a large red stripe over the hood, roof and trunk, but it also gets a hood with two air scoops, a deck spoiler, 20in black wheels and heated front seats in red leather or dark gray leather. Hands-free phone, six-speaker stereo, fog lights and automatic temperature control are all also included in the package. It is available in silver, Tungsten, white or the pictured black. 

The package also adds some performance tweaks to the Challenger. The Pentastar V6 gets a cold-air intake and dual exhausts. Despite these upgrades Dodge still rates the 3.6l Pentastar at 305hp and 268lb-ft of torque. It also gets a 3.06:1 rear differential compared to the 2.65:1 unit in the standard car. The Redline gets a sport suspension that stiffens the springs by 42% in the front and 22% in the rear and thicker sway bars front and rear. The steering is also 25% quicker and the brakes are 1in larger in front and vented brakes replace the standard car's solid rotors in the rear. 

The faster rear differential should make the car slightly quicker at the expense of top speed, but Dodge has not released performance information for the model yet. 

All cars get a five-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddles.

The Challenger Rallye Redline costs $28,745, which is a $3,750 premium over a base Challenger. It seems like buyers are getting quite an upgrade in terms of equipment for the money.
