Six-speed Manual Transmission - The all-new 2009 Dodge Challenger is the only modern-day car with the 5.7-liter or 6.1-liter HEMI engines to offer a six-speed manual transmission. A derivative of the transmission featured in the all-new 600 horsepower 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10, the Dodge Challengerís gearbox carries over Viper SRT10 features including triple cone synchronizers in first and second gears and dual cone synchronizers for third through sixth gears, but also has modifications including new gear ratios to meet fuel economy and performance targets.

Pistol Grip shifted six speed manual transmission. Borrowing from Dodge Viper SRT10 manual transmission technology, Dodge engineers were develop a new six-speed manual that meets fuel economy and performance targets for Dodge Challengerís weight class.

The clutch for the 2009 Dodge Challenger manual transmission package uses Dodge Viper SRT10ís twin-disc design to ensure exceptional torque capacity and clutch life, low pedal efforts, excellent engagement qualities and optimized spinning inertia.

Hill Start Assist (HSA) is standard with all Dodge Challengers equipped with a manual transmission in order to aid the driver with launching the vehicle on inclines.

This unique feature holds the brake for approximately three seconds and allows the driver to seamlessly apply torque via throttle for an effortless start. The brake system automatically releases when the system senses engine torque.

Dodge Challengers equipped with a manual transmission feature a unique performance-tuned dual exhaust that optimizes engine back pressure and exhaust throatiness. This is accomplished by removing the stamped underfloor muffler and replacing it with two low-restriction bottle resonators.

 

Five-speed Automatic Transmission - Featured on the 2009 Dodge Challenger 5.7-liter HEMI and 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 engine options, the five-speed automatic transmission with Auto Stick provides world-class efficiency while enhancing fuel economy. An aggressive first-gear ratio provides outstanding launch performance. Auto Stick gives the driver the ability to select a higher or lower gear while the transmission controller calibration prevents situations that might overspeed the engine. Fully adaptive electronic control of all shifting makes the powertrain more responsive without harshness.
