Dodge Challenger Hemi

One of my buddies recently went and purchased a "new" muscle car. He decided to get a 2009 Dodge Challenger. He claimed that this car is a monster so I had to go check it out for myself. He did indeed get a Dodge Challenger with a Hemi motor.

Dodge Challenger Hemi

This 2009 Dodge Challenger is equipped with a Dodge Hemi motor. It is an eight cylinder motor that is a 6.1L Over Head Valve (OHV). This particular motor is found in only six percent of the 2009 Challengers. It is equipped with GPS Navigation, ESP full-off switch, Brembo brakes, and limited slip differential. The car I was test driving has a six-speed manual transmission, but it could also be equipped with a five-speed automatic. Even though this car happened to be the well known bright HEMI Orange, Dodge is now offering a wide variety of colors: TorRed, Inferno Red Crystal Pearl, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl, Bright Silver Metallic, Dark Titanium Metallic, Deep Water Blue Pearl, and Stone White.

I was glad to be driving around in such a muscular looking car. This car not only turned on a dime, it turned the heads of all the by-standers watching as I drove the car 0-60 in about seven seconds! My friend was not messing with me when he said this car is a monster. It comes stock with 425 horsepower. You would not feel sorry for buying this stylish car that is not only liked by many seniors that remember the car from the 1970's. The performance of this car is amazing with a top speed of 170 mph. It has a panel of four gages which are stylish along with the leather interior.

However, the car does have its dislikes. Because of the monstrous motor it is equipped with, the car only averages thirteen to fifteen miles per gallon in the city and twenty-five miles per gallon on the highway. The car also is not very "roomy" in the back. It is very hard to access since the driver side seat does not tilt.

Overall, I think this car is an amazing ride. If you are interested, but not liking the price, you may be able to find one used with low miles on eBay.
