0062012DodgeChallengerRallyeRedline.jpgThe Chrysler Group recently debuted the 2012 Dodge
    Challenger Rallye Redline – a sportier version of the entry level muscle car
    centered around the 3.6L Pentastar V6. 
    Unfortunately, there Rallye Redline doesn’t add any additional power but
    the standard 305 horsepower and 268lb-ft of torque offer great acceleration
    while the handling of the brawny Mopar muscle car is enhanced through a variety
    of new features.

    The 2012 Challenger Rallye Redline begins by adding the Super
    Sport Group as standard equipment.  This
    includes a performance tuned suspension package featuring 42% firmer front
    shocks and 22% stiffer shocks in the rear, a 30mm front sway bar and 20mm rear
    sway bar (replacing the standard 27mm front and 16mm rear units), a performance
    tuned steering calibration that is 25% more responsive and 20×8 inch black
    chrome wheels wrapped in Firestone Firehawk 245/45/20 all season performance tires.  The Super Sport Group package has been
    available on previous V6 Challenger models with an MSRP of $1,500 and having
    had a test car with this package – it is well worth the cost.  Even better, it is included in the Rallye
    Redline for no additional cost.

    the Dodge engineers turned to the braking system where dual piston front
    calipers replace the single piston units with larger, vented front rotors and
    while the back brakes sport the same calipers, there are new, larger rotors.  The result is a Mopar muscle car that packs a
    near 50/50 weight distribution for supreme handling while also offering an
    impressive 27 miles per gallon on the highway. 
    It also gives the car an awesome stance. 

    With the handling of the 2012 Dodge Challenger Rallye
    Redline taken care of, the folks from Chrysler went inside the Mopar muscle
    car, adding a set of aluminum steering wheel mounted paddle shifters mated to
    the 5-speed automatic transmission for more shift control.  These paddles were previously only available
    with the 8-speed transmission in the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 along with
    the current SRT model but with the Rallye Redline package – V6 Challenger
    owners can get in on the gear shifting fun as well.  Finally, the standard 2.65 rear axle has been
    removed in favor of a 3.06 ratio for better acceleration.

    On the outside, the Challenger Rallye Redline comes in Bright
    Silver Metallic, Tungsten Metallic, Bright White or Pitch Black with a thick
    red stripe running down the center of the car with thin red stripes flanking
    the large red stripe.  Inside, the Rallye
    Redline comes with either the flashy new Radar Red interior or the standard
    Slate Grey layout for those buyers who like a more conservative look – with both
    finishes being available on heavily leather clad sport seats and the 3-person
    rear bench.

    The 2012 Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline is available right
    now on the Dodge website with an MSRP starting at $29,670 including the
    destination charge of $925.  This great
    looking V6 performance package has a handful of options including the $995
    sunroof, a $945 Mopar interior appearance package, and three different sound
    system packages ranging from $695 to $1,995.
