What powers the Challenger roster of high-performance muscle car models?

A 305-hp 3.6L V6 engine, with the choice of rear-wheel drive or 4WD, appears on the GT and SXT models. A Torqueflight 845RE 8-speed automatic transmission is standard-issue for this engine. The 372-horsepower 5.7L Hemi V8 engine is found usually with a 6-speed manual transmission, yet drivers can select a Torqueflight 8HP70 8-speed automatic instead. Every V8 engine has an 8-speed automatic transmission but could also be substituted with a 6-speed manual transmission. Look for the R/T Scat Pack, T/A 392, 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker, or the SRT 392 models for the 485-horsepower 6.4-liter V8 engine -- if you want to accomplish a quarter-mile in just over 12 seconds. In the and SRT Widebody and SRT Hellcat, a 6.2L supercharged Hemi V8 proudly boasts 707-horsepower. In the 2018 SRT Hellcat Demon trim, it is calibrated to reach 840-horsepower and 770 lb.-­ft of torque (needs 100 octane fuel & the Direct Connection Controller). The Demon can run on 100 Octane and lower, or a mix of the two!

These Modes are pre-calibrated for Sport, Track, Default, and even a Custom setting to apply your own preferences with. Over to the GT AWD (all-wheel drive) model, which uses enhanced brakes and has a choice for 19-inch aluminum wheels with painted pockets. The GT also garners assistance from front-axle disconnect, an active transfer case, ventilated/heated front seats, performance in-car applications, leather upholstery, foglights, an 8.4" touchscreen, satellite radio and HD radio.
