2013 Dodge Charger SRT8 Road Test & Review: Introduction
Disciples who routinely worship at the altar of high performance are well aware of the activities of the SRT group within the Chrysler corporation. Responsible for such automotive deities as Viper and Prowler, the SRT group has routinely anointed the streets with some of the hottest cars in Chrysler’s histor
For the 2012 model year, Chrysler decreed SRT become a brand unto itself, complete with a chief executive officer in the person of Canadian Ralph Gilles (pronounced Jeels).
To ensure the success of the brand, Gilles cast his net with a raft of all-new white-hot rear-drive models powered by a new 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine designed to enable its driver to absolutely positively scald the streets.
Reworked as an all-new product for the 2011 model year, the Dodge Charger was already a significant improvement over the 2010 model it replaced. This now carries into the SRT iteration of the car as well. If you’re a fighter pilot in need of a family car, the folks at SRT (with the capable assistance of the Dodge boys), have crafted just the four-door to suit your needs.
