2008 Dodge Magnum R/T

The restyled 2008 Dodge Magnum R/T continues the boldly-styled theme of American muscle, with its unique profile, exceptional versatility, HEMI power, fuel-saving cylinder deactivation and rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive performance. The 2008 Dodge magnum includes advanced technologies, flexible and functional cargo space and integrated safety and security features combine to provide a powerful, capable family vehicle with the ride and handling of a sports car.


A package unlike any other in the marketplace, the 2008 Dodge Magnum R/T is an evolution of the bold, powerful and street-smart philosophy of Dodge. The 2008 Dodge Magnum R/T is equipped with a modern 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine featuring MDS. MDS seamlessly alternates between four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and V-8 mode when more power is demanded, increasing fuel economy as much as 20 percent without sacrificing vehicle performance. Drivers may be informed when four-cylinder mode is active by selecting the new fuel-economy display available through the optional Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC). The 5-7-liter HEMI V-8 engine provides 340 horsepower @ 5000 rpm and 390 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4000 rpm and offers an EPA fuel economy rating of 17/25 (city/hwy).
