    Dodge announces pricing of all-new 2008 Challenger SRT8


    Auburn Hills, Mich., Nov 29, 2007 - Dodge announced pricing today for the modern interpretation of the American muscle coupe. The 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8® will arrive in showrooms next spring at a Manufacturer?s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $37,995 (which includes $675 destination).

    Due to unprecedented demand, Dodge dealers will begin taking orders on Dec. 3 for the limited-edition 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 models. Each will feature a numbered dash plaque and a 6.1-liter HEMI® V-8 engine. 2008 Challenger SRT8 models will be available in Black, Silver and HEMI Orange. All will feature dual ?carbon-fiber? hood stripes, harkening back to the original Dodge Challenger.

    ?The 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 offers pure American pony-car muscle,? said James Press, Vice Chairman & President ? Chrysler LLC. ?With styling that stays true to Challenger?s original heritage, an abundance of modern amenities and cutting-edge technology, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 will deliver the SRT credo of benchmark performance at a tremendous value.

    ?The Challenger SRT8 is only the beginning of the story, as we?ll soon follow with a complete lineup of Challenger models that will offer a wide array of features and deliver outstanding value for our customers,? Press added.

    Customers may begin placing orders at their Dodge dealer on Monday, Dec. 3. They can expect to take delivery of their vehicle next spring.

    The all-new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 will be built at the Chrysler Canada Assembly Plant in Brampton, Ontario, on the same assembly line with the Dodge Charger, Charger SRT8, Magnum, Magnum SRT8, Chrysler 300 and Chrysler 300 SRT8 vehicles.

    Pricing for the complete all-new Dodge Challenger lineup will be announced at a later date.

    SRT performance vehicles ? including the Dodge Viper SRT10, Dodge Caliber SRT4, Dodge Magnum SRT8, Dodge Charger SRT8, Chrysler 300C SRT8, Jeep® Grand Cherokee SRT8, and now, the Dodge Challenger SRT8 ? are engineered by Chrysler?s in-house performance organization: Street and Racing Technology.

    The all-new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 showcases the renowned, five key aspects of every SRT vehicle: exterior styling that resonates with the brand image; race-inspired interiors; world-class ride and handling characteristics across a broad range; benchmark braking; and standout powertrain. The all-new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 will unquestionably deliver in all five areas.

    the pricing seems a LITTLE high, but not too bad considering what you're getting

    That's a great price (the MRSP is only a few hundred bucks more than the 2008 Charger SRT8) - a loaded one should be around $40,000 which is not bad. Here's a link to the main page article:

    The best thing about the new 2008 Challenger is that the R/T (5.7 Hemi) and SRT8 (6.1 Hemi) will both have 6-speed manual options - the 6-speed R/T will have 3.73 rear (axle ratio) and the 6-speed SRT8 will have 3.92 rear - that is absolutely phenomenal. BTW the R/T automatic will only have 2.82 rear gears and the SRT automatic will have a 3.06 rear.

    FINALLY THE HEMI WILL HAVE A MANUAL TRANSMISSION AND NECK SNAPPING REAR GEARS - WHOOO-HOOOO!

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but the 6 Speed is only in 2009.

    The FULLY LOADED SRT-8 is $41,895 How much will a fully loaded GT500 run you?

    " How much will a fully loaded GT500 run you?"


    Niether is/will be a bargain; expect mucho dealer gouging.

    The prices are so close to what a nice classic-era Challenger would cost that it's tempting to just buy the old car; it, at least, will not lose value the minute you drive it off the showroom floor!

    The 2008 is for collectors and rich old guys, the 2009 will be cheaper, and have better options. Wait for the '10, it'll have the 392 (aka 6.4) w/over 500HP.

    If there's a 2010... which I'm not optimistic about given the state of Chrysler, the fiscal realities, the just-passed 35 MPG CAFE edict and the very real possibility of $4 per gallon well before 2010... .
