2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 Green With Envy - Click above for high-res image gallery

Dodge is spicing up the Challenger line with a new eye-searing paint color. The hue is called Green With Envy, and it's supposed to pay homage to some of the wilder colors from the company's past, including Sublime and Green Go. Buyers will be able to grab their new green Challenger in one of two configurations, including a new R/T Classic that serves up the company's 372-horsepower 5.7-liter V8 engine with two A-line body stripes. The accents are available in either matte black or white.

For those who need a little more bite with their bark, Chrysler is also serving up the Challenger SRT8 in the new paint. In that trim, owners can enjoy the same 470-horsepower 6.4-liter V8 engine found in the Challenger SRT8 392, and the muscle bruisers will be differentiated by full-body black stripes. Likewise, the interior will enjoy Green With Envy accented seats.

Look to pony up around $35,785 for the Challenger R/T Classic Green With Envy and $44,875 for the SRT8 iteration. Both prices include destination. Hit the jump for the full press blast.

2011 Dodge Challengers Are Becoming Even More the Envy of the Muscle Car Market
Green with Envy Launches on Challenger R/T Classic and SRT8® 392 Models

February 9, 2011 , Chicago -

The expanding muscle car market is going to be "Green With Envy" as the Dodge brand today announced a first-time, limited production run of the 2011 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic and SRT8® 392 models featuring Green With Envy exterior color.

Both Dodge Challenger models are improved for 2011 and deliver more of what American muscle-car enthusiasts want - unmistakable design, powerful HEMI® V-8 engines with new technologies and world-class handling and braking. Executed with quality and precision, the two new Challenger Green With Envy models provide an extra dose of exclusivity.

"We're using Green With Envy on the new 2011 Dodge Challengers to pay tribute to some of the coolest paint colors from our past, including the "Sublime" and "Green Go" Dodge Challengers from the 1970's and more recently, the "Snakeskin Green" Vipers from 2008-2010," said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO, Dodge Brand and Senior Vice President , Product Design - Chrysler Group LLC. "Not only will this exclusive heritage color remain unique to the Dodge brand, it adds another fresh and exciting element to our modern American muscle coupe."

Production of the 2011 Green With Envy Challenger models will start in February 2011 at the Brampton Assembly plant in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. Challenger SRT8 Green With Envy models are available for ordering now at Dodge dealerships, while orders for the Challenger R/T Classic models will begin in late first quarter, 2011.


2011 DODGE CHALLENGER R/T CLASSIC

Upgraded for the performance enthusiast, the new 2011 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic includes a new performance-tuned suspension with rail-like handling, more power from the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 and more standard equipment.

The limited edition Green With Envy model features two A-line body-side stripes – either in matte black (standard) or white (optional). New five-spoke, cast-aluminum wheels are styled in the spirit of nostalgic Halibrand or "Kidney Bean" style with a modern interpretation. On the interior, the premium Dark Slate Nappa leather seats and center console feature Green With Envy accent stitching.

The legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine adds a new cold-air induction system for 375 track-tearing horsepower (with standard Tremec six-speed manual transmission) and 372 horsepower (with optional five-speed Auto Stick transmission). Fuel Saver technology on the automatic transmission seamlessly transitions to high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and V-8 mode when more power is in demand. This optimizes fuel economy when full V-8 power is not required, without sacrificing vehicle performance or capability.

The EPA fuel economy, miles per gallon rating is 16/25 (city/hwy) for both the automatic transmission and manual transmission models.

Other standard equipment on the new 2011 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic package includes "Challenger" fender badges in classic script, classic "egg-crate grille" with heritage "R/T" badge, functional hood scoops, high-intensity discharge headlamps (HID), heated front seats and six Boston Acoustics premium speakers with 276-watt amplifier. The standard Super Track Pak Group adds a high-performance steering gear, high-performance brake linings, high-performance tuned monotube-shock absorbers, P245/45R20 Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car three-season tires and three-mode ESC with "full off."

The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the 2011 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic Green With Envy, is $ 35,785 (includes $825 destination).

2011 DODGE CHALLENGER SRT8

This new and exclusive Green With Envy paint scheme joins the return of the legendary 392-cubic inch HEMI powertrain under the hood in the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392.

In addition to the unique exterior, dual, full-body black stripes and 20-inch, five-spoke SRT-exclusive wheels with polished face and satin black painted pockets are standard. The race-inspired interior of the Challenger SRT8 392 features standard SRT-branded seats in Dark Slate Nappa Leather with Green With
Envy accent bands in front and rear.

Pumping out 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque, the newest HEMI engine in the SRT product lineup provides an additional 90 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,900 rpm compared with the previous 6.1-liter V-8 engine.

The added torque allows for inspired standing starts and improved straight-line performance while new, performance-tuned motor mounts improve idle stability and ride control at any speed. An active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft with cam phasing provides maximum low-end torque while optimizing high-end power.

New for 2011 is the Fuel Saver technology (four-cylinder mode) in automatic transmission equipped models, which allows the engine to operate economically on four cylinders or use all eight cylinders when needed.

The 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 gets 14/22 (city/hwy) miles per gallon (mpg) with the automatic transmission model (a 15 percent increase on highway versus 2010 model) and 14/23 mpg with the manual-transmission (a 4 percent increase on highway versus 2010).
The MSRP for the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 featuring Green With Envy is $44,875 (includes $825 destination).

The 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is also now available in four additional exterior colors, including Billett Metallic Clear Coat, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl Coat, Redline 3 Pearl Coat and Toxic Orange Pearl Coat.

      Reminds me of the Pony wars whern I was in High School. I LOVE IT!! Im a MUSTANG guy BUT I really like the New Challenger and Camaro. That green is awesome.
      • 4 Years Ago
      No offense but the newer models will smoke the old ones in the 1/4 mile.Granted the new Challenger and Camaro are too heavy. Ford has worked on that problem and taken some weight off the newer MUSTANGS. Anyway you can always mod your car too make crazy HP.The list of performance option is endless.I know that slippery road.

      This is one fine looking car. Retro and stout.

      The Camaro is way too modern and angular...the front end looks like the designers used a Ginsu knife for cues...

      The Mustang...a much better attempt at going retro, but still nothing like the Challenger...Dodge boys, you've hit a homerun.

      What? Chrysler thinks it can turn the clock back 30 years and everything will be OK? Think again.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Whoa, that's a very nice green color. Not tacky like lime green.

      In '57, Chrysler announced their wildly finned line with the tag "Suddenly it's 1960." In the salt belt, the rocker panels didn't last that long and the torsion bar mounts might have but not much longer. Now, Chrysler could announce "Suddenly it's 1971" with these colors.
      It was their practice starting in the fifties to introduce Spring colors to perk up sales. So, here we go again.

      Gorgeous. Looks like the same Snakeskin green from the Viper

      @yourfriend...

      The engine is not maxed out to full potential...If you know anything about engine building you would understand..

      Its under 500 hp so it get decent fuel mileage,engine doesnt rev up like a 4 or 6 cyl making high h.p so the 392,will last 200,000+ miles without a rebuild(common for the 5.7 hemi and even the 6.1's are proven trouble free)..unlike high reving small engines that blow head gaskets,heads,valves ,bottom end top end and cams when driven hard,i've had small engine high horsepower imports and they dont last driven hard..

      Furthermore nobody beats Chrysler for building high horsepower engines,in Top Fuel they use old 1964 Chrysler 426 Hemi engines and they produce over 7,000 horsepower !!! Toyota/Ford/GM use Chrysler engines in drag racing as well today and decades ago !! FYI The old 60's/70's 426 Hemi was rated at 425 actually had 550 hp and change the cam it was over 800 hp..They out of the showroom would run in the 11's with slicks,the 440 ran low 12's with slicks even tested by magazines back in the day..stock tires would spin down 3/4 of the 1/4 mile back then,reported times back then were done either tires spinning or not flooring it on take off,start slow up to 30 mph then floor it and hope they dont spin the tires..thats why all the times for oldcars,muscle/supercars times are way slower than the cars actually were..

        Sorry but it's not 1965. Many of the newer small displacement, high horsepower V8's are extremely reliable. Heck I daily drive a car with a stock NA 420hp 4.2L V8 that revs to 8200+rpm and guess what. No blown head gaskets, launched valves, or blown bottom end as you state.

      I have a '11 green srt8 and I LOVE IT. Not only because it's rare, because Dodge only made that color for one year. But everywhere I go I get comments , thumbs up. You don't get that with a camaro, mustang or corvette because they are everywhere. Cookie cutters

      I love my 2010 Challenger....grew up w/4 brothers and their mustangs. I thought they would call me a traitor but they are quite impressed with the car including it's retro design. Mustangs still reign with them though, including my son. :) I've waited 30 yrs. for this car and wouldn't trade it for anything.
