The 2010 Dodge Challenger had merged the best American muscle-car characteristics with its definite design, world-class handling, and powerful engines and technology. With three models of head-turning styling, two legendary HEMI V-8 engine choices, up to 25 highway miles per gallon (mpg), more than 25 safety and security features and modern amenities, still including Media Center 730N with voice-activated Uconnect™ Navigation system and real-time traffic available, Dodge Challenger was awarded J.D. Power and Associates “Most Appealing Midsize Sporty Car” in its 2009 APEAL Study.
Now, to commemorate 40 years of Dodge Challenger performance, Dodge presents their new 2010 Dodge Challenger models: the 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic and Challenger SRT8® Furious Fuchsia editions, which are claimed as two of the wildest and rarest Challenger.
2010 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic Furious Fuchsia
The 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic Furious Fuchsia edition features dual throwback A-line body-side R/T stripes in Matte Black or Bright White. Dealing with the appearance, this new Challenger presents fender badges in classic script, large 20-inch polished-aluminum heritage wheels with tire-smoking, classic egg-crate grille with heritage “R/T” badge, body-color rear spoiler, functional hood scoop and bright racing style fuel-filler door. On the interior, the trapezoidal theme of the door-panel and gauge cluster, dark headliner and slanted shifter console are inspired by the original Dodge Challenger.
When paired with the Tremec six-speed manual transmission, the 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic Furious Fuchsia edition includes the performance-minded Track Pak with precision-shift “pistol-grip” shifter, anti-spin 3.92 differential and a performance-tuned dual exhaust with two low-restriction bottle resonators for maximum “throatiness.” And when it’s time to deliver, the Furious Fuchsia R/T Classic can accelerate from 0–60 mph in less than six seconds with its powerful 376 horsepower (280 kW) and 410 lb.-ft. of torque (556 N•m) 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine.
2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Furious Fuchsia
Compared to Challenger R/T Classic, Challenger SRT8 versions delivers even more punch with a 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 engine—with engine block lacquered in original HEMI Orange paint—producing 425 horsepower (317 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. (569 N•m) of torque, performance-tuned ride and handling, benchmark braking and race-inspired interior with unique SRT-designed appointments.
The limited-production Dodge Challenger SRT8 in Furious Fuchsia is based on the 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8 and features several standard equipment upgrades, including all-new performance seats, unique 20-inch SRT forged-aluminum wheels, serialized dash plaque series of 400 and retro-inspired chromed quad-exhaust tips.
The 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic and SRT8 Furious Fuchsia Editions will be produced starting in May 2010 at the Brampton Assembly plant in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, and will be built on the same assembly line as the award-winning and quality-proven Dodge Charger and Dodge Charger SRT8 sedans. The U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the new 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic in Furious Fuchsia Pearl Coat is $35,140, while the high-performance SRT8 model is $45,150 (both prices include $725 destination). Both Furious Fuchsia editions will be available for order at Dodge dealerships nationwide in March.
