We’ve already shown you the 2014 Dodge Charger SRT and Chrysler 300 SRT Satin Vapor Editions, and now we present the last of the special edition trio, the 2014 Dodge Challenger SRT Satin Vapor Edition.
Just like the other two Mopars, the Challenger is left mechanically stock with this appearance package, but that’s not a bad thing. Its classic 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 (That’s a 392 for you cubic-inch guys) sends a raucous 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels via either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. Zero to 60 and quarter mile times remain the same at 4.4 seconds and 12.8 Seconds at 115 mph, respectively.
The differences here are only skin deep. Unique 20-by-9-inch forged aluminum split five-spoke wheels get a black satin chrome finish with massive red Brembo calipers hugging the huge vented rotors just behind. Satin-black mirrors and a satin-black fuel door stand out, while grey "392 HEMI" badges remind on-lookers of what evil lurks under the long, double-scooped hood. And just like the other two, the Challenger comes with its own set of unique exterior colors: Bright White, TorRed, Header Orange, and Graphite.
Charcoal-colored Nappa leather seats with ultra-suede inserts, along with the instrument cluster treated with a mini-carbon bezel help set the interior apart from lesser Challenger SRTs.
Adding the Satin Vapor Edition package to a new Challenger will cost and extra $1,700 beyond the SRT’s $40,485 MSRP and it will be in showrooms the second quarter of this year.

The Challenger has been a great example of a classic American automotive icon reborn. New for 2008, the Challenger, along with the Charger, were Chrysler ’s answers to the retro phase started by the 2005 Ford Mustang .
A Challenger can be had with Chrysler’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 that makes 305 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque — decent power for open-road cruising. Stepping up to the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 gets you a lot more power at 375 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. The top-dog, 6.4-liter HEMI is the heart of the SRT performance model, and it generates a very respectable 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
Pricing for the Challenger starts at $26,295 for the V-6 and can climbs beyond $50,000 for a loaded SRT model.
