A few days ago Chrysler announced the new 2011 Mopar Charger ad released a ketch of the car. Now they’ve come up with full details and pictures of the car.
So, what is this Mopar Charger? Well, first thing you have to know is that it’s a limited edition product with only a 1000 units planned – 900 US and 100 Canada. Next thing you should know is that it’s powered by a 5.7-liter HEMI® with 370 horsepower and 395 lb.-ft. of torque.
But it comes with the “Super Trac Pac” option which according to Chrysler ushes the capabilities of the Mopar Charger in acceleration, handling and braking. The car comes with the five-speed W5A580 automatic fitted with the awesome “Pistol Grip” shifter combined with Auto Stick. With Auto Stick, drivers may select a higher or lower gear while the transmission controller helps prevent the possibility of an over-rev condition.
The Mopar Charger also features a trick differential at the back with a new 3.91:1 final-drive ratio for enhanced acceleration – unique to the Mopar Charger. They reckon it can do zero to 60 mph in under five seconds.
