Boost Your Modern V6 Charger, Challenger or 300 with a K&N Intake

There is no doubt that the Chrysler Group has successfully resurrected some of their most iconic cars with the reintroduction of the Charger, Challenger and Chrysler 300 in the last few years. While these vehicles have some stunning similarities to their classic counterparts and share the same nameplates, the modern vehicles offer much better technology by way of performance, fuel economy and power. But just like in the muscle car era, we’re all about getting more from our rides, and that’s why K&N has developed an air intake especially for the 2011 and 2012 V6 Charger, Challenger and Chrysler 300.

Now for a muscle car guy, something about a V6 just doesn’t seem right. However, the new 3.6L Chrysler engine offers a decent amount of power, pushing out about 290hp while still giving drivers (ones without incredible lead feet, that is) an average fuel economy of 27 miles to the gallon.

With K&N’s air intake for the 3.6L V6 Chrysler lineup, this performance is improved even more. In a recent test of the intake on a stock 2011 Dodge Charger, K&N saw an improvement of 7.42hp and 7.65ft.-lbs. of torque, taking the Charger up to nearly 218hp to the rear wheels and 225 ft.-lbs. of torque.

What’s even better than added performance, is the K&N intake’s ease of use. Just like the other intake systems from K&N, the 3.6L V6 intake comes with everything your engine needs to breath better. Included in the system is a K&N high flow air filter, which can be washed and reused for up to 100,000 miles, a heat shield, intake pipe with chrome-like finish, all the hardware you need to install the system, and detailed instructions on how to do so.

Backed by K&N’s Million Mile Limited Warranty, this intake is tested for proper fit to the 2011-2012 V6 Charger, Challenger and Chrysler 300. With something this easy to install and noticeable power gains, there’s no going wrong with a K&N intake for your modern V6 Chrysler.

Tests on a stock 2011 V6 Charger show notable performance increases with the K&N 3.6L V6 Chrysler intake
