2008 Dodge Challenger
Dodge first released the Challenger in 1970 when muscle cars were still popular. The car was around only for about five years, but it has become popular with car enthusiasts. Chrysler, the company that manufactures Dodge cars, recently revealed that the 2008 Dodge Challenger will be a remake of the old classic and will be ready for the roads next year. Most of the changes will make the car more suitable to modern buyers and will allow the car to pass current safety regulations. Though the car’s design is a little older, it will come with all of the bells and whistles a buyer is willing to pay to have in the car.
The 2008 Dodge Challenger looks like an updated version of the original. Instead of a completely new design, Dodge engineers went with the same sleek look. The Challenger also was known for the racing stripe down the middle of the car, which the new version will have as well. The grille of the 2008 Dodge Challenger also harkens back to the older model car. The grille is very short by today’s standards and has two headlights inset on each side. All of these features combine to make this car one that should prove popular with buyers.
The 2008 Challenger will be priced at a little more than $30,000, according to Chrysler’s latest projections. The car will come with a Hemi, the engine type that has become one of the hallmarks of Dodge vehicles in recent years. The Hemi engine gives the car more power, which is what Challenger buyers will want. In addition, the 2008 Dodge Challenger will be built on what is called an LY platform. This platform allows the car to support both manual and automatic transmissions and will give it a newer look. The LY also is in other popular Dodge models, including the Magnum and Charger.
