September 1, 2009 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

The 2010 Dodge Charger SRT8® packs all of the features and amenities expected of an excellent family sedan combined with benchmark performance delivered by Chrysler Street and Racing Technology (SRT) vehicles.

Key SRT ingredients that make up the Dodge Charger SRT8 include a 6.1-liter, 425-horsepower (317 kW) HEMI® V-8 that delivers 0-60 mph in the low 5-second range, quarter-mile time in less than 14 seconds, world-class ride and handling, benchmark braking using knockback mitigation software producing 60-0 mph stops in approximately 110 feet and 0.89 g on the skid pad. In addition, the Dodge Charger SRT8 accomplishes SRT’s signature performance test of 0-100-0 mph in less than 17 seconds.

SRT-inspired interior appointments in the 2010 Dodge Charger SRT8 start with Dark Slate Gray interior color seats with agate-color accent stitching, carbon-fiber-like leather-trim door handles and steering wheel, SRT logo on front-seat inserts and center console, and LED lighting in the front cup holders and front- and rear-door map pockets.

Befitting its high-performance character, the 2010 Dodge Charger SRT8 continues to provide power-adjustable, deeply sculpted and highly bolstered sport seats in the front, fitted with performance suede inserts to hold occupants during maneuvering. Rear seats have matching performance suede inserts.

Full instrumentation includes a 180-mph (300 kph) speedometer, a tachometer and a coolant temperature gauge. An LED display within the gauge cluster is driver configurable for oil-temperature, oil-pressure and tire-pressure readouts. The exclusive Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) with Performance Pages is available and provides drivers with instant feedback on 0-60 mph time, 60-0 mph braking, G-forces in addition to one-eighth mile and quarter-mile times.
