We know pretty much everything there is to know about the2011 Dodge Challenger, including the car’s prices list, but Chrysler hasn’t released an official press release yet. So, to get a closer look at the future muscle car, we went hunting. Turns out, we got lucky; Jonsibal caught the car in a parking lot!

Looking at the picture we are sure you were a bit surprised at how little the muscle car has changed. The list of exterior modifications include new 5-spoke wheels, the elimination of the "RAM Head" Dodge logo, a redesigned grille featuring a frown-like shape, and new door handles. That’s pretty much it for any changes. Exhilarating, isn’t it? It’s a good thing the Challenger is a sweet looking car or else we would be disappointed.

Thankfully, the biggest changes will be made under the hood and we couldn’t think of any better place to make the most changes. What goes fast can always go faster, right? The SE version will get a Pentastar V6 engine with an output between 290 and 300 HP, if the direct injection is added. For the RT version the engine will remain the same and the SRT8 version will get a new 6.4-liter Hemi engine delivering 480 HP and 460 lb-ft of torque.

The Challenger is already my favorite of the 3, and the power it makes isn’t really even much of a factor.

The only way Id pay more for that thing is it looses a pound for every $10 increased in the price

yes, and it looks much more interesting than Prius or Insight... but I’ll wait for the twin brother Opel Ampera... I love it even more smiley

I have to agree with the comments above the spoiler just doesn’t seem to match the car. Also the Mopar symbol painted in the middle of the hood is fugly to me.

Mopar fans, rejoice?there’s a limited-edition Plum Crazy model available for the SRT8. Otherwise, not much has changed: Steering-wheel audio controls now packaged with Uconnect, ESP standard on the SE model, and automatic headlights and LED cupholder/door handles standard on R/T. Engine choices are a 250-hp V-6 in the SE, a 370-hp V-8 in the R/T, and a 425-hp V-8 in the SRT8.

the new challenger looks so simple, yet aggressive. also it looks more like an old schooled challenger because of the rear portion of the side glasses.
