Detroit Motor Show 2012: best of the rest
All the other new metal from this year's North American International Auto Show
Posted: 12 Jan 2012
Today's Charger doesn't quite stimulate the same sensual provocation as its predecessors, but MOPAR's attempt to make it more muscley demands respec'.
The Redline's got some aero tweakery, 20-inch rims, a cat-back exhaust, suspension brace and upgraded brake hoses and a bloody great 7.0-litre Hemi V8.
Inside it, there's a forged crankshaft with six-bolt mains at two, three and four, and cross-bolted four-bolt mains at one and five. H-beam style con rods made from forged steel with some forged 11:1 compression ratio aluminum pistons flapping on the end. There's also a revised windage tray for better oil dispersion.
In plain English: 590bhp.
