Adding a bit more visual flair to its Hemi-powered rear-drive muscle coupe while offering an optional handling edge, the 2013 Dodge Challenger R/T Redline and R/T Plus Redline editions make their public debut in Chicago before rolling into showrooms later this spring. All will be powered by the 5.7-liter version of the automaker's legendary V8 fitted with econo-enhancing Fuel Saver Technology that allows it to operate on four cylinders under light load conditions. The engine makes 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque when mated to the standard 6-speed manual transmission or 372 horses and 405 lb-ft of twist when paired with the optional paddle-shiftable 5-speed automatic.
Each of these new R/T and R/T Plus variants will accent their Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Bright White and Pitch Black exterior with a matching grille surround and custom side accent stripes rendered in Redline Red and Graphite. Running from behind the front wheelwells to the tail of the vehicle, each incorporates the "Redline" name its rear quarter panel area. The Redline Package also includes distinctive 20-inch Black Chrome wheels with a Redline Red lip and inner backbone. Those seeking to enhance the car's dynamic performance also can opt for the Super Track Pak that brings a sport suspension, performance steering gear and lower the ride height while adding Goodyear Eagle F1 P245/45R20 three-season performance tires plus high-performance brake linings.
Done in Dark Slate Gray, the passenger compartment of the Dodge Challenger R/T Redline features matching cloth-covered performance seats in in R/T guise and premium Nappa leather performance seats in Radar Red or Dark Slate Gray on the R/T Plus. Autoshifted models also get bright pedals, a Mopar T-Handle shifter and remote start.
Available for order now, pricing for the new R/T Redline Group is $1,995, which will bring the suggested retail price of the 2013 Dodge Challenger R/T Redline to $34,980 and have the even-more generously appointed R/T Plus model open at $36,980. The Super Track Pak will add another $595 to those figures.
