The 2006 Dodge Magnum continues to build momentum as one of the hippest vehicles on the road offering a bold, unique profile, exceptional versatility, optional HEMI® power and both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive performance.
The 2006 Dodge Magnum lineup includes the rear-wheel-drive Dodge Magnum SE model, Dodge Magnum with the SXT package and the HEMI-powered Dodge Magnum R/T model. The 2006 Dodge Magnum SXT and the Magnum R/T also are available as all-wheel-drive models, which provide traction control in all-weather and all-surface conditions.
The rear-wheel-drive 2006 Dodge Magnum SE features a 2.7-liter V-6 engine that provides 190 horsepower and 190 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to the four-speed automatic transmission. The transmission features Variable Line Pressure (VLP), which accurately estimates the pressure necessary for maximum operating efficiency (late availability). This precise control of pressure reduces parasitic losses from the pump and hydraulic system to provide enhanced fuel economy.
The rear-wheel drive 2006 Dodge Magnum with the SXT package features a 3.5-liter High Output V-6 engine mated to a five-speed fully automatic transmission with AutoStick (late availability). The engine provides a perfect blend of performance and economy on the Dodge Magnum SXT package offering 250 horsepower and 250 lb.-ft. of torque.
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 (254 kW) and 390 lb.-ft. (525 N•m) of torque, the Dodge Magnum R/T can go from zero to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds.
