Dodge Challenger earns five-star safety ratings

Dodge Challenger earns five-star safety ratings

Posted Friday, Nov 21, 2008 at 11:24 am in Company News


The all-new 2009 Dodge Challenger earned five-star ratings for driver- and front-passenger protection in a frontal crash along with five-star driver and rear-passenger ratings for side-impact protection, the highest ratings in the U.S. government’s safety crash-test program.

The all-new 2009 Dodge Challenger is available now at local Dodge dealers.

“Safety is a top priority in all Chrysler vehicles, and the all-new 2009 Dodge Challenger features the latest in safety and security features providing our customers with the peace of mind they want and expect,” Larry Lyons, Vice President—Car and Minivan Product Team, said. “Dodge Challenger offers an unmistakable heritage design and delivers numerous advanced safety and security features including advanced multi-stage front driver and passenger air bags, supplemental side-curtain air bags and Electronic Stability Program (ESP) with traction control and brake assist.”

When it comes to safety and security, Dodge Challenger employs a two-fold approach: passive features including pre-tensioning seat belt retractors and supplemental side-curtain air bags are combined with accident-avoidance features including responsive steering, braking, handling and ESP.

Challenger SRT10® concept gets ‘cover’ treatment

Challenger SRT10® concept gets ‘cover’ treatment

Posted Friday, Nov 21, 2008 at 10:56 am in Company News


The Dodge Challenger SRT10® concept car, which was revealed earlier this month at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, is the cover story of this week’s AutoWeek magazine.

“With all the doom and gloom surrounding the auto industry today, it’s heartening for enthusiasts to know that there are still talented people in the business who are not working on hybrids or electric vehicles,” writer Roger Hart said. “For the record, these people are having high-powered, tire-smoking fun. For now.”

The two-page spread, titled “Viperized” asks the question in the subhead: “What happens when you drop a Viper V-10 into a Challenger?” The magazine’s next subhead answers: “Lots of tire smoke.”
