An ultra-high-performance variant, the SRT8, joins the lineup, powered by the SRT group's 425-hp, 6.1L Hemi V-8 mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift capability. The SRT8 extends Chrysler Group's high-performance marque to the popular Dodge cross/utility vehicle. The brake system has been enhanced with 4-piston Brembo calipers acting on larger rotors, while larger sway bars and a retuned suspension improve handling capabilities. In addition, the stability control program has been retuned to take advantage of the SRT8's increased performance. A unique front look includes ducts that direct cool air to the brakes and a chin spoiler to reduce high-speed lift. The rear fascia has been modified with a spoiler and cutouts to accommodate the car's larger exhaust outlets. A rear DVD entertainment system is optional on SXT and R/T variants, both of which have new silver instrument panel trim. A tire pressure monitoring system is standard on the R/T and all models have a system to visually and audibly warn the driver and front passenger when their seatbelts are not fastened.
