    The new product onslaught continues for the Dodge brand with the announcement at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show that the Dodge Charger SRT8 will return for the 2012 model year.
    "We're continuing the fast-paced rebuilding of Dodge as our performance brand, and the expansion of our SRT product lineup in 2012 is an important part of our rejuvenation," said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO, Dodge Brand — Chrysler Group LLCs. "The new 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 builds on the iconic four-door fastback coupe design of the all-new Charger and adds a much larger power band across the rpm range, along with intelligent performance attributes and safety and creature comforts for customers who are passionate about performance driving."
    The 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 will be built at the Brampton Assembly plant in Brampton, Ontario, Canada and will be in dealer showrooms in late 2011.
    "AWE-INSPIRING" POWERTRAIN
    Under the hood, the new 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 delivers more horsepower and torque than the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces. It also will offer improved fuel economy.
    Estimated power ratings for the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 are 465 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque, including an estimated additional 80 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,900 rpm. Specific horsepower, torque and fuel economy numbers will be announced closer to the vehicle introduction.
    Building upon the standard Fuel Saver technology (four-cylinder mode) found in the new 6.4 HEMI V-8, a new for 2012 adaptive valve exhaust system allows the technology to engage over a wider rpm range, which delivers improved fuel efficiency or the use of all eight cylinders when the power is needed.

    GTR wannabe? Hardly. This is the update to a model that has more or less been out since '04. It's not at all in the same category as the GTR.

    brochure,
    Why do you start threads like this? What is the point? We don't need you to find on like manufactures marketing for us. Perhaps you should try something, only reply to other topics rather than start a bunch of useless ones yourself.

    The front and side character line is definitely GTR mockery.

    It's not like those features are unique to the GTR. The nose could be as much Audi or Mitsubishi. That side dent has been done on a number of cars as well. I guess I can see it now that you mention it but GTR wanabee, no way.

    because it's not just the nose grille, its the fake side scoop looking things and more importantly the square back line. Those imply it so strongly that with that front, its just plain unmistakable.

    I'm getting a little GTR vibe from the 3/4 thumbnail pic too . Something about the side of the back end.

    With the color and the blacked out grille, I see more Evo X than GTR....

    That's exactly what I was thinking! Still an improvement over the current looks IMO.

    Me likes this. It may have some GTR and EVO-influenced design characteristics, but really, who cares as long as it isn't a copy?
    Speaking for myself, I like the designs that came out of America recently (ignoring several Chevys).

    Surely it should be a Lancia Thema 8.16?

    And the Dodge Grand Caravan, the Alfa Romeo Caravan Di Grandi Dimensioni!

    What a great tie-up!
