Alongside the CTS-V, one of our favorite American power wagons was the Dodge
Magnum – particularly the SRT
-8 version. With a 6.1-liter Hemi V8, the Magnum SRT-8 packed 425 horsepower for a 5.1-second 0-60 time. That may not be that much by today’s standards, but eight years ago when the Magnum SRT-8 first debuted, it was a powerful machine indeed. Unfortunately Magnum sales plummeted from over 52,000 units in 2005 to less than 7,000 in 2008. So Chrysler
discontinued the Magnum, along with many other models. The Journey crossover that replaced it just isn’t the same, even if sales have been better.
