We've already said that the 2011 Dodge Challenger will have a 305-horsepower V-6 engine. Now we know some more details.

The Pentastar V-6 is Chrysler's newest V-6, and it is set to replace most of the current models' V-6s. In the case of the 2011 Challenger, the engine checks in at 3.6 liters. It's 305 horsepower is an increase of 55 over last year's 3.5-liter mill. Torque is rated at 268 lb-ft.

I've driven the previous V-6 Challenger and was underwhelmed with its power. Unlike the R/T and the SRT8, the V-6 Challenger came across as a car strictly for show, not go. The words "insurance beater" come to mind.

It's probably not a coincidence that Chyrsler is advertising 305 horsepower for its Challenger V-6...that's the same number of ponies in the V-6 version of the 2011 Ford Mustang, and seven less than the 312 in the V-6 Camaro. Who said that horsepower wars are restricted to the V-8 models?
