An early post on the details of the 2011 Dodge Challenger at NADA Guides has revealed the pricing for the updated car, which gets a 6.4-liter HEMI in the SRT8 version as well as other SRT vehicles. Power on the bigger engine isn't stated, however, leaving us to guess at its ultimate output.
The new 6.4-liter HEMI is expected to generated anywhere from 480-500+ horsepower, depending on the application. Anywhere in that range is a significant bump in power, yet the price of the range-topping trim drops to $43,100 from the 2010's current $43,680.
Other models in the lineup see significant price rises, however, and it's not yet clear why. Additional features, a raised base spec, or simple production costs might explain it, but we'll have to wait for the official, full details to verify. Whatever the reason, the base model V-6 car now starts at $25,305, up from $23,695. The SE package car is dropped, but a new variant called the R/T Classic is added, priced the same as the standard 2011 R/T at $32,770, up from the 2010's $31,610.
