Dodge Magnum SXT
The 2005 Dodge Magnum is the new shape of American muscle, celebrating what American muscle cars were in the past, but with a design and packaging configuration that charges into the future.
Proven Daimler Chrysler technologies such as Electronic Stability Program (ESP), All-speed Traction Control and four-wheel anti-lock brakes control rear-wheel drive vehicles in a way transparent to the driver for all-surface and all-weather driving confidence.
An optional all-wheel-drive system is offered on the Dodge Magnum SXT and RT models for those customers wanting outstanding performance and stability under all traction conditions.
The Dodge Magnum SXT features a 3.5-liter SOHC V-6 engine with improved high-output performance. An all-new active three-plenum intake manifold provides high power and torque over the entire operating band. This engine provides the perfect blend of performance and economy. This engine is mated to the 42RLE four-speed automatic transmission, a variation of the 42LE automatic transmission used on previous Chrysler Group vehicles. It was developed for the Dodge Magnum and is included with both V-6 engines on rear-wheel-drive models. The Dodge Magnum SXT equipped with all-wheel drive features the 3.5-liter V-6 engine mated to the five-speed automatic transmission.
All-wheel-drive is available on the Dodge Magnum SXT and Magnum RT. The all-wheel-drive system adds a front differential and a transfer case to the rear-wheel drive configuration. The power is divided between the front and rear differentials and is transmitted to both axles at all times.
The Dodge Magnum SE and SXT models are tuned to provide a smooth ride, while maintaining a feeling of control and confidence. Engineers focused on minimizing noise, vibration and harshness, which resulted in a smooth and quiet driving experience.
