2008 Dodge Magnum Press Release

2008 Dodge Magnum Lineup Packs Powerful Punch

* New 2008 Dodge Magnum SRT8 includes race-inspired, aggressive hood, functional performance hood scoop, new grille, headlamps, front fascia design and interior appointments
* Restyled 2008 Dodge Magnum R/T continues to defy comparison in the marketplace with functionality, HEMI® power and fuel-saving Multi-displacement System (MDS)
* Sophisticated exterior and interior enhancements combined with bold Dodge attitude create a modern Magnum lineup for 2008

Detroit - The newly restyled 2008 Dodge Magnum lineup — including SRT8, R/T, SXT and SE models — continues the boldly-styled theme of American muscle, with its unique profile, exceptional versatility, HEMI® power, fuel-saving cylinder deactivation and rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive performance.

Advanced technologies, flexible and functional cargo space and integrated safety and security features combine to provide a powerful, capable family vehicle with the ride and handling of a sports car.

A package unlike any other in the marketplace, the 2008 Dodge Magnum lineup is an evolution of the bold, powerful and street-smart philosophy of the Dodge brand.

Any information on why the SRT Magnum at the show was shown with the "new" interior but did not show the new steering column? Meaning the one in pics at the show had the cruise control on the upper left of the steering wheel, not on the lower right shown in the press release? And yes the photo thats shown on Autoblog is the 2008, if people look at the shifter, Nav system, and cupholders it's an 08.

SRT Interior

Also the car shown in the press release shows PRNDL... "L"?? Is autostick now an option? I can't get a straight up answer on any of this.

According to the Spec sheet we got in the press kit, Autostick is still there. We've been theorizing that the PRNDL shown in the pictures is a V6 model (they love to mix and match photos in the press kits).

I think auto stick was an option on eary build 2006 and 2005 Magnums. Most 2006 SXT's, R/T's and SRT-8's come with autostick standard. Also some early 2006's had 4 speed automatic transmissions whereas later ones had 5 speed automatics. SE's come with the 4 speed and no auto stick. My 2006 SXT has the 5 speed autostick.
