2011 Dodge Challenger Features

On Features
Take a look at the feature list for the 2011 Dodge Challenger is definitely more than a no-frills pony-car knockoff. If you want high-end audio systems or luxury-car comforts, they're probably available here—and with seemingly endless performance kits and appearance packages, you can pretty much find exactly the version you want.

For 2011, Dodge has reconfigured the Challenger's feature list and bolstered standard equipment across the lineup. The SE now includes automatic climate control, cruise control, a trip computer, keyless entry and Keyless Go, a power driver seat, a 60/40-split rear seat, and a six-speaker CD sound system. R/T models, in addition to the Hemi V-8 engine, of course, get performance disc brakes with vented rotors, a performance steering system, fog lamps, upgraded instruments, and special badging.

On top of its even bigger V-8 and serious performance hardware, the SRT8 gets heated mirrors, heated front seats, leather upholstery, xenon headlamps, a universal garage-door opener, a Uconnect hands-free Bluetooth interface, and a high-end sound system with 30-gigabyte hard drive, touch-screen controls, Sirius satellite radio, and Boston Acoustics speakers. Also on offer is a Garmin touch-screen navigation system that's not only simpler to use but functionally a step ahead many other original-equipment systems. Uconnect Web is also on offer, turning the Challenger into a wireless hot spot, and the available Sirius Travel Link suite brings real-time weather, fuel prices, sports, and movie information. G

The 2011 Dodge Challenger offers a lot of features for a reasonable base price, but those who option up an R/T or SRT8 might be shocked at the sticker.

And especially if you're getting an R/T or SRT8, if you're willing to spend some extra dough you can give them a number of quite different looks. The R/T Plus package, for instance, brings upgraded rubber and a better sound system, while the R/T Classic package is a throwback, with old-style badging, an eggcrate grille, striping, and functional hood scoops. A Track Pak brings a pistol-grip shifter, performance, exhaust, and upgraded brakes, among other things, while the Super Track Pak is for those who plan to take to the track, with a full-off mode for the stability control.

The downside of all these options, of course, is that you can drive the sticker price up toward (and past) the $40k mark for an R/T or near to $50k for the SRT8.
