2011 Dodge Challenger Safety
Safety has become a greater priority among nearly every auto manufacturer in the United States today, and Dodge is no exception. Specifically, if you purchase the 2011 Dodge Challenger, you will receive a host of standard features such as anti lock disc brakes, traction and stability control, and front head restraints that active actively instead of passively. It is important to keep in mind, however, that the size and power of various safety features such as brakes will depend on the trim and option package you select; naturally, the more you spend on the model, the more features you are likely to receive in the Challenger.
The 2011 Dodge Challenger also comes with a generous set of air bags, including front air bags, front side air bags, side air bags, and side curtain air bags. The Challenger is no slouch when it comes to stopping, either. When it was tested in standard brake tests, it proved capable of coming to a complete stop from around 60 miles per hour in 114 feet, which is excellent for vehicles in its size and class.
The government recently came out with more strenuous crash testing procedures for the 2011 vehicular year. There are not many vehicles that have been rated with this new system, including the Challenger, but the Challenger did perform admirably in crash testing from the previous model year.
