The data isn't all in, since the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 has yet to be crash tested by NHTSA or IIHS. However, the list of standard safety features is quite long, including four-wheel anti-lock brakes, driver and passenger front impact airbags, seat-mounted driver and passenger side impact airbags, curtain first- and second-row overhead airbags, front passenger airbag occupancy sensor, height-adjustable front seatbelts, three-point rear center seatbelt, side-impact bars, tire-pressure monitor, stability control, and driveline traction control, according to Cars.com.

TheCarConnection.com notes that the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 shares Chrysler's LX platform, upon which Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 sedans are also built. As Motor Trend reports, the Charger SRT8 received a "5 of 5" rating from NHTSA on both of its frontal crash tests, as well as its side impact test in the rear seat area. The Charger didn't score less than four stars out of five on any of NHTSA's tests.

Chrysler has been on quite an impressive streak when it comes to NHTSA crash ratings. As Automobile.com points out, "All ten new models Chrysler Group has brought to market since its Pacifica crossover debuted in 2003 have delivered 5-Star U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) frontal crash protection, the highest rating possible."

Conclusion

The jury's still out when it comes to official safety ratings for the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8, but there’s every reason to expect the best.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
