A New Trim Level For The 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic

images2.jpgChrysler is making an effort to get back to usual business, now that it has its money from the bailout.  Although it has basically set its factories to “off,” the carmaker unveiled some brand new concept cars at the 2009 Detroit auto show.  And, underneath those dull displays there was a diamond in the rough:  the Dodge Challenger with a new trim level.

What is to be known as the R/T Classic, this new Challenger is going to be available in showrooms this February for a price of $33,280 including an auto warranty.  That price is $3,460 more than the standard R/T.  You can’t find these cars in dealers yet, however, if you’re getting antsy you can now order one.

The new R/T Classic steals many styling cues from the Challenger of the 1970s, which includes new racing stripes, badging of the original Challenger, as well as the original B5 Blue paint job.  In addition, all R/T Classics come with dual hood scoops that are functional.  The standard 18-inch wheels are replaced with 20s as part of the Challenger package.  On a standard R/T they are a $1,350 option.

Chrysler has experienced a sales decrease of 30% last year, and the carmaker has been damaged by the recession more than other carmakers due to its lineup of vehicles that is lackluster. The Challenger is definitely one of the carmakers largest sales successes with 17,423 sales in 2008.
