2008 Dodge Magnum line receives a freshened front end, revised interior and more standard equipment. The cruise control stalk has been moved away from the turn signal stalk and repositioned near the steering wheel's lower right side.
The most noticeable changes appear on the R/T model, which now offers the high-performance Road/Track package as well as a one-year pre-paid SIRIUS Satellite Radio subscription and power-adjustable foot pedals.
If you've got to have a wagon, there's not another like this. The 2008 Dodge Magnum SRT8 is the baddest, boldest wagon to grace the asphalt. Based on the popular Magnum wagon, the SRT8 jacks up the horsepower with a 6.1-liter HEMI V8 engine, while underneath Dodge tweaks an already capable suspension to deliver the thrill-ride of a lifetime - at least, for the category of vehicles that can also tote lumber from the home improvement warehouse. When you're not hot-rodding around town, the Magnum SRT8 can be quite civilized, offering a comfortable ride, a roomy rear seat and a deep cargo hold. About the only thing to hold you back might be the price which, at over $38,000, places a $6,000-plus premium over our second-favorite Dodge wagon, the HEMI-powered Magnum R/T.
