Now here's a nice surprise for Dodge fans. A member of the Mopart forums has snagged some photos of what appears to be the facelifted 2011 Dodge Challenger in R/T trim without a single trace of camouflage. The cosmetic changes over the 2009/2010 muscle-coupe are extremely subtle and it will take a trained eye to spot the differences.
These include the reshaped lower intake up front (basically, the designers turned it upside down) and the elimination of the Ram nose emblem on the hood, plus a new set of door handles. It is possible that the 2011 Challengers could feature more changes on the outside and in particular the rear end as we don't have any other photos of the car.
Rumor has that the 2011 Challenger will also benefit from some important changes under the hood. More specifically, it is said that the base Challenger SE will get Chrysler's new Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine pushing out somewhere between 280HP and 300HP, while the flagship SRT8 will receive a new 6.4-liter V8 delivering some 480-horsepower, up from 425HP.
