2009 Dodge Challenger R/T: You can't miss reverse
September 17, 2009
Our long-term 2009 Dodge Challenger R/Tpositionsreverse gear to the upper right, next to fifth.
You can't miss it in thislocation. You also don't have to push down, pull a ring up, or something.
You just move the shifter to the right,ram it up and you're good.
On some vehicles, like our departed cadaver/crayon-smelling M3, reverse is next to first with no lockout. No problem, most of the time. But rush the shift to firstat a red light because you were busy doing something else -- let's just say it gets your attention in a hurry.
I never saw this reverse locationbefore we got our Challenger. But the Ford Shelby GT500 andour long-term Camaro share the same reverse position.
For me, it's the best location -- by far.
