To be able to compete with the new Mustang V6 and the Camaro V6, Dodge confirmed an entry-level variant for the 2011 Challenger, equipped with the firm’s new Pentastar V6 engine.

This 3.6 liter unit which also powers the Chrysler Town & Country, 300 and 200, and Dodge Charger, Avenger, Durango and Journey, delivers 305 bhp and 268 lb.ft. and is one of the most fuel efficient engines Chrysler has to offer.

Other benefit of the new Pentastar V6 Challenger is the price, as it’ll be somewhere around 23,000 USD, there and there about. That is fantastic value for a car with so much character.

Constructed with a high-pressure, die cast aluminum block fitted with cast iron bore liners and aluminum cylinder heads, the 60-degree 3.6-liter Pentastar engine is compact and lightweight. At 503mm in total length, the new V-6-liter is 94mm shorter than the 3.7 engine that was previously used in the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Models including Charger, Challenger and Avenger have had engine length decrease 34mm from the previous 3.5 – liter V-6.
