What you are looking at is in fact the new upcoming 2011 Dodge Charger. The Ram’s head logo might be replaced by the two diagonal stripes which are Dodge’s new logo. The production launch should be starting late in November this year which will be the same time as the slightly refreshed 2011 Dodge Challenger. The upcoming models will feature the new Pentastar V6 along with the usual Hemi V8. The next generation SRT8’s will have a 6.4 liter Hemi V8 replacing the current 6.1 liter V8. Power output could be as high as 500 hp from the 6.4 liters powering the SRT8’s, though 440-475 hp is more likely. We can expect the SRT8’s to most likely appear towards the end of 2011 or beginning of 2012. A 5 speed automatic will be the transmission in the 2011 at launch, though rumors peg a ZF designed 8 speed transmission possibly coming to the line up. The 8 speed might only make it to the SRT’s and trucks but who really knows at this point. Also possible is a 7 speed automatic again this it is really unknown what will happen on this front.
The greenhouse seems to be smoothed out possibly for aerodynamics. The grill is restyled and enlarged. The hood has more sculpting and more creases appear all over. Overall this looks like a healthy update and I personally can not wait to see the rear. We can naturally assume the new refreshed models will be revealed later this fall.
