Dodge Challenger SRT8 vs RT
The Dodge Challenger is one of the sporty automobiles dubbed as a pony car. The 2012 model of the Challenger comes in a variety of trim packages that include the RT and SRT8 packages. The SRT8 trim costs significantly more than the RT trim and thus has a number of upgrades over it. The main difference between the SRT8 and the RT is the larger engine of the former. With a 6.4L engine, the SRT8 is able to produce close to 100 horsepower than the 5.7L engine of the RT. More horsepower means greater acceleration and increased speed.
When it comes to the exterior, there are a couple of notable differences between the SRT8 and the RT. The first is the notably larger rims installed in the SRT8. While the RT sported 18-inch rims, the SRT8 has 20-inch rims. The rims of the SRT8 are also wider, giving it significantly more traction than the RT which is quite advantageous given the significant increase in power. The second is the use of high-intensity discharge or HID lamps for the headlights. These lights are significantly brighter than the halogen lights you would find on the RT.
The differences between the SRT8 and the RT do not end outside the vehicle as there are also a number of differences inside the vehicles. You would quickly notice that the seats of the SRT8 are covered with leather, unlike that of the RT, which are covered with cloth. The seats of the SRT8 are also heated making it much more comfortable on those cold winter nights.
The SRT8 also has a couple of nice additions to its electronics. The first is a system of parking sensors that removes most of the guesswork out of parking. It alerts the driver to the proximity of objects that may not be visible to him. Another addition is a HomeLink garage door transmitter. If you have a compatible controller connected to your garage door, then you can open the garage door without leaving your SRT8.
