NEW FOR 2010
• New limited-edition Plum Crazy Model
The 425 horsepower (317 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. of torque (569 N•m) in the 2010 Dodge
Challenger SRT8® are the result of SRT’s exclusive and proven 6.1-liter HEMI® V-8
engine, which represents the highest naturally aspirated specific-output V-8 engine
ever offered by Chrysler. Its 69.8 horsepower-per-liter rating exceeds even that of the
legendary 1966 “Street HEMI.”
• Unique Plum Crazy Pearl Coat
exterior color
New for the Dodge Challenger SRT8 in the 2010 model year is a limited-edition
Plum Crazy model. It will feature a unique Plum Crazy Pearl Coat exterior paint color with
a plum seat-stripe insert, along with a serialized dash plaque.
SAFETY AND SECURITY
Exterior styling cues are unmistakably Dodge, with proportions that evoke a bold,
instantly recognizable vehicle that has a wide, stable stance on the road. A full-width
grille and fog lamps, reminiscent of the original Challenger, are married to the modern
“Dodge performance attitude.” The result is an aggressive face that is unmistakably a
muscle car. The hood—with a raised center, black stripes and functional dual scoops—
stays true to the Dodge Challenger heritage, as does the A-line and beltline.
• Advanced Multi-stage Air Bags
The 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is available with either a standard five-speed
automatic with Auto Stick or an available Tremec TR-6060 six-speed manual
transmission that was first offered on the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10®. The result is a
Dodge muscle car packed with modern amenities and features any enthusiast will love.
• Interior Head-impact Protection
Interior highlights include race-inspired leather seats with added bolstering and an
exclusive red accent stripe, exclusive stitched accents on the seats and steering wheel,
four-bomb gauges with tachometer and 180-mph speedometer in the center, and
an SRT-exclusive Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) with Performance Pages
that provide drivers instant feedback on 0-60 mph time, 60-0 mph braking,
G-forces in addition to one-eighth mile and quarter-mile times. The classic pistol-grip
shifter featured on the manual transmission is reminiscent of the original Dodge Challenger.
• Serialized dash plaque
• Plum accent seat-stripe insert
More than 30 safety and security
features, include:
• Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
• Energy-absorbing Steering Column
• Enhanced Accident Response System
(EARS)
• Remote start
• Tire-pressure Monitoring (TPM)
• Vehicle Theft Security Alarm

(a)
Certified to the federal regulation for automatic passenger occupant classification. Always use seat belts. Children 12 and under should
always be in a back seat correctly using an infant or child restraint system, or the seat belt positioned correctly for the child’s age and size.
The Occupant-classification System (OCS) determines the conditions for activation or deactivation of the passenger-side front air bag based
upon the weight of the occupant. It may not activate the air bag if the occupant has incorrect seating posture or is moving in the seat.
You should observe the air bag lamp to determine if the OCS is deciding properly. Passengers should sit properly in the seat with the seat belt
fastened at all times.
(b)
No system, no matter how sophisticated, can repeal the laws of physics or overcome careless driving actions. Performance is limited by
available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. When the ESC warning lamp in the speedometer flashes, the driver needs
to use less throttle and adapt speed and driving behavior to prevailing road conditions. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions.
Always wear your seat belt.
