Dodge has added a new safety mode to its charger and challenger models for those who want to take advantage of these vehicles to deter thieves and cope with low adrenaline-fuel rides.
So we are talking about the second layer of safety of these vehicles. The next driver must enter a four-digit code on the multimedia system screen. This limits the car’s power to three horses! The engine is actually idle at all times, limiting all possibilities.
Best of all, this is a free upgrade from the Model Years 2015 or newer for all owners of a charger sedan or Challenger coupe. The only problem is, the model must have a 6.4 liter (392) V8 Hemi or a 6.2 liter supercharged V8. These engines are currently offered with the Scott Pack and Helcott versions of each model and have 485 and 717 horsepower, respectively.
“More than 150 cars are stolen every day in the United States,” Dodge chief executive Tim Kuniskis said in a statement. “Although our models are rarer than others, thieves have targeted them.”
