Finely Tuned Chassis - While the 2009 Dodge Challenger shares the suspension geometry of the Dodge Charger, chassis components are re-tuned to support more spirited driving and handling performance.

2009 Dodge Challenger R/T.

In the front, the all-new 2009 Dodge Challenger features an independent short- and long-arm (SLA) front suspension to provide excellent ride and handling.

The multi-link SLA suspension allows bushing compliance to be tuned for a dramatic reduction in road noise, while maintaining Challengerís dynamic handling performance. In the rear, Dodge Challengerís five-link independent suspension with coil springs allows independent tuning of handling and ride comfort so that each can be maximized.

The Dodge Challengerís rear suspension complements the performance of the front suspension, resulting in a balanced ride. Dodge Challenger R/T features a sport-tuned athletic, nimble suspension and steering via increased suspension damping, spring rates, steering responsiveness and lower-aspect-ratio all-season performance 18- and 20-inch tires. Reduced body roll, precision steering and well-damped ride provide enthusiast levels of handling without compromise to ride and comfort.


Power rack-and-pinion steering has an overall ratio of 16.1:1 on all 2009 Dodge Challenger models. The steering effort is varied to balance comfort and ease-of-operation with road-feel and responsiveness requirements. Dodge engineers tuned Challengerís steering system to deliver light parking efforts, without compromising steering performance at speed. In addition, the systems are tuned to match the unique handling capabilities for each of the Dodge Challenger models. The Dodge Challenger R/T with a manual transmission features a variable displacement power steering pump which reduces fluid temperatures while decreasing the parasitic losses to achieve improved fuel economy (0.2 mpg).


Brakes - Four-wheel disc brakes are standard on Dodge Challenger R/T models. They feature twin-piston aluminum calipers and vented rotors in the front and single-piston aluminum calipers with vented rotors in the rear. The Dodge Challenger R/T has a 60 to zero mph stopping distance of approximately 125 feet. Ducts located in the front fascia of the Dodge Challenger direct cooling airflow to the front brakes, which reduces front-brake temperatures by as much as 15 percent in heavy use for enhanced performance and longer life. Brake pads are tuned to match the performance characteristics of each Dodge Challenger model.
