HEMI Powered: The 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T has the makings of a new legend without leaving behind highlights from the past. In addition to bold, nostalgic styling, Dodge Challenger R/T offers a powerful HEMI Engine. Available with a manual or automatic transmission.


2009 HEMI Powered Dodge Challenger R/T.

The 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T features a new generation 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine that produces an estimated 370 horsepower @ 5800 rpm and 398 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4200 rpm when paired with the five-speed automatic transmission.

When paired with the six-speed manual transmission the HEMI produces an estimated 375 horsepower @ 5800 rpm and 404 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4200 rpm. The 2009 Dodge Challenger is the first ever manual transmission option on a new generation HEMI powered car.

For 2009, the engine is upgraded to get an estimated 5 percent improvement in fuel economy, an increase of 30 horsepower (9 percent) and 8 lb.-ft. improved torque (2 percent) over a greater range of engine speeds; particularly at lower engine RPM for an improved off-the-line feel.


This is achieved with variable-valve timing to improve torque and an increased compression ratio (10.5 from 9.6). These allow for greater use of Chryslerís fuel-saving multi-displacement system (MDS) technology available on vehicles equipped with the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 with automatic transmission.

The new-generation HEMI engine features dual ignition (two spark plugs per cylinder) which increases peak power and torque, reduces exhaust emissions, increases fuel economy and smooths the idle. A refined combustion system and robust structure with direct-mount accessories help make the engine quiet.

The 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 with the five-speed automatic transmission includes fuel-saving multi-displacement (MDS) technology. MDS is well suited for vehicles like the Dodge Challenger with an automatic transmission because of its dual nature: a powerful and smooth engine for acceleration that is economical when cruising.
