Starting from November 15, the Chrysler Group's Dodge brand will take two of its newest models, the special edition 2011 Challenger SRT8 392 and the facelifted Charger R/T, on a multi-state road show that will bring them to auto enthusiasts from Michigan to California before they arrive in dealerships. Named "The Hemi Highway Tour", both cars will be driven by long-time Dodge Representatives, Heather Heughens and Scott Vandekerckhove.
"These two new Dodge vehicles will make stops at more than 25 enthusiast clubs, tuner shops, Dodge dealers and automotive events across the country," the company said in a statement.
Dodge has not yet released full intel on the 2011 Charger, but we do know that aside from the cosmetic makeover and the quality upgrades inside, the base model benefits from a new 292-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, while the R/T keeps the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine which is available with rear-wheel drive or optionally, an all-wheel drive setup.
As for the 2011 Challenger SRT8 392, the limited run model debuts Chrysler's new 392 c.i. [6.4-liters] V8 HEMI rated at 470 ponies and 470 lb.-ft. of torque.
