There’s not long to go until you can get to see what the Chicago Auto Show has different when compared to Detroit a couple of weeks ago, and one such vehicle that you might want to make your way to see is the 2013 Dodge Challenger R/T Redline. The reason we say this is because mistakes have been learned from last years model and we are to get a much needed power boost thanks to the HEMI V-8 engine.
Looking over the 2013 Dodge Challenger R/T Redline specs it’s clear to see that there is not a great deal of change from Challenger Rallye Redline from last year, but it’s clear that this version is all about the power from the engine, which is said to produce 375 horsepower. However, to handle that kind of power the chassis has had to be performance tuned.
Having 410 lb-ft torque and just uprating the chassis was never going to be enough so including an improved manual transmission (6-speed) or a choice of Automatic was a necessary step. What’s the use of having all that extra power if you are unable to transfer it to the road, which is why there are those Goodyear Eagle F1 tires mounted to some mean looking 20-inch Black Chrome wheels, which sits on the round nice and low to give it a far more aggressive appearance.
We hope to offer an in-depth 2013 Dodge Challenger R/T Redline review once these have been tried and tested on the streets, which will be in April by the way. The price of the new model is to cost from $31,990.
