The new V6 is actually the 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 engine that’s the pride of Chrysler’s 2010 and beyond revolution.

The 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 develops 305 horsepower and has a peak torque of 268 lb-ft. According to Chrysler this new engine will make the 2011 Dodge Challenger V6, more powerful, faster, more economical and more reliable than the previous version.

It’s all good news but it’s not that impressive as the 2011 Dodge Challenger V6 is still trailing behind Ford’s effort and GM’s as well in the race for V6 coupes.

Besides the new Pentastar V6 being less impressive than that of the opposition the 2011 Dodge Challenger will have another limb shot off as it will be heavier than the 2011 Ford Mustang and the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro, both powered by the same sort of powerplant.

Aside the new engine, the 2011 Dodge Challenger will also receive a better gearbox, a new suspension setup, better brakes and a set of Firestone tires destined to surpass the previous offerings.

The exterior look will receive minor modifications but that’s ok as the 2011 Dodge Challenger is a good looker even with 2010 skin.
