I cannot justify the purchase of a 2011 Dodge Challenger 392 on any rational grounds. The Shelby GT500 is cheaper and faster, and the additional size and weight of the big Dodge don’t pay off anywhere except on the boulevard.

Overall, I’m really pleased with the changes Chrysler has made to the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8. The bland interior and indifferent handling were the two biggest reasons not to buy one, and now those reasons are gone. Go, Mopar, go!

The newest big-dog Challenger SRT8 392 feels like a rocket sled. And we’d like to tip our hats to Dodge for keeping her naturally aspirated, proving once again that there’s no replacement for displacement.

This beast is everything that’s right with the American muscle car. While it may not be fit for track duty, on the street, the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 is a force to be reckoned with.

The Dodge Challenger SRT8 392’s power still lives largest closer to the top end, but there’s more excitement in the midrange than ever before. And now the steering feels much more natural and lively with a quicker turn-in.

What we have here with the 2011 Dodge Challenger is a modern-day muscle car that, when it hits showrooms early next year, should finally be able to walk tall with the Camaro and Mustang…any time, on any road.

Guiding a Dodge Challenger SRT8 around a racing circuit might seem like the ultimate automotive fish-out-of-water experience, but the big coupe’s poise on the racetrack is one of the more surprising qualities.

Staff Review MotorWeek 7.2 out of 10 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Coupe

While Camaro and Mustang may still not have much to worry about, the 2011 Dodge Challenger has certainly become a more serious challenger. Its styling is definitely a winner in our book, and improved performance is always a plus.

There isn’t a single car on the market today that ticks all the muscle car boxes the way this Challenger does. From its looks to its new engine to the sound of the big Hemi exhaling, the Challenger SRT8 392 screams throwback Americana in a way the Mustang and Camaro just can’t match.

The 2011 Challenger SRT8 392 is not for everyone, nor was it ever intended to be. With a Hemi under the hood and and an incredible design, this is one Challenger ready for a fight.

A docile commuter during the daily grind, roomy and comfortable enough to carry four adults and a hoot when the road opens up, this dynamite Dodge Challenger offers a lot for more practical car enthusiasts.
