2006 Dodge Magnum R/T Information:
The 2006 Dodge Magnum R/T features a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine with Multi-Displacement System (MDS), mated to a five-speed automatic transmission with AutoStick. MDS seamlessly turns off the fuel consumption in four cylinders of the 5.7-liter HEMI engine when V-8 power is not needed, improving fuel economy by as much as 20 percent. With 340 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque, the Dodge Magnum R/T can go from zero to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds.
The 2006 Dodge Magnum R/T includes all the Dodge Magnum SXT's standard features plus the following: 18-inch polished aluminum wheels and touring tires; 19-gallon fuel tank; chrome, bright "R/T" style exterior badge; multi-function, power, heated foldaway mirrors; dual exhaust with bright tips; performance four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes; premium leather interior trim and sunscreen privacy glass.
The Dodge Magnum R/T powered by the HEMI V-8 engine also is available as an all-wheel-drive model, which includes a front differential, transfer case and all-wheel-drive front suspension. Dodge succeeded in bringing back rear-wheel-drive technology to transfer HEMI V-8 power to the pavement with the 2005 Dodge Magnum. Proven technologies such as Electronic Stability Program, All-speed Traction Control System and Anti-lock Brake Systems that helped control rear-wheel-drive 2005 Dodge Magnum vehicles continue to provide exceptional ride and handling characteristics in the 2006 Dodge Magnum with the SXT package vehicles and R/T models.
