The story behind: The '11 Dodge Charger R/T was a Hot Wheels casting designed by Brendon Vetuskey. The actual vehicle was first shown at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show. Originally It features a completely new body with the most striking changes being the redesigned fascia and hood section, modified "racetrack" vintage-style taillights and a new dashboard.
Other feature which is present is that it also takes some styling cues from the 1968-1970 models. Chrome aluminum wheels became standard equipment over plastic hubcaps. The new 3.6L Pentastar V6 Engine replaces the 2.7L V6 Engine as well as the 3.5L High-Output V6 Engine. It is built alongside the 2011 Challenger SRT8 392 and 300C.
Engines are available with both the 5-speed and 8-speed automatic transmissions.
