2014 Dodge SRT Viper Review

2014 Dodge SRT Viper

There is no doubt that 2014 Dodge SRT Viper is a real muscle car with large and powerful engine that offers a lot of torque we are getting great performances. Viper lineup has dropped Dodge name and now everything is under SRT brand but that is not a bad thing since new cars are getting better and better.

A brand-new model signs up with the Viper variety for 2014: the Viper TA. Bred with nothing but lap times in mind, it’s the whittled down, distilled version of a street-going Viper, and it’s restricted to just 33 devices.

The even more common Vipers, the SRT Viper and the Viper GTS, are still absolutely nothing to mock, however, whether on the track or the street. Their look mirrors this, as does the venomous new Viper logo. Low, long, and covered in threatening vents and muscular bulges, the Viper telegraphs its supercar intentions. Inside, the cabin is recently improved and glamorous, with offered leather and tech plans pushing it totally into the 21st century.

SRT Viper Performances

Under the hood of the Viper you’ll find simply one engine, no matter the trim: a 640-horsepower, 600-pound-foot 8.4-liter V-10 beast of an engine driving the rear wheels. It delivers the most torque of any normally aspirated sports car engine in the world, and the performance reflects that: 0-60 miles per hour runs come in the low-three-second range; quarter miles fly by in the low 11s; 0-100-0 mph takes less than 12 seconds; top speed is 206 mph. You can have any transmission you want, as long as it’s the standard six-speed handbook.

The supercar game is not all about straight-line performance, however, and the 2014 Dodge SRT Viper shines when it’s time to turn, too. The most recent Viper generation is the first to be equipped with stability and traction control, and fortunately, they’re not the devitalizing systems of old. Even in fully-engaged mode, the system enables for yaw and slip angles ideal to spirited track-day antics.

In 2013, non-GTS models had just two settings for the traction control system: on and off. For 2014, a 3rd mode has been contributed to improve traction in the rain. GTS models add a pair of intermediary actions (Sport and Track) which further loosen the limitations. Even with everything totally off, however, the 2014 Dodge SRT Viper is nearly balanced, transitioning from entry to apex to exit with enormous grip and surprising feel through the steering wheel and the seat-bottom. There’s always the risk of the rear coming around when you come onto the gas too hard, but as a training tool, the mortal fear of 600 pound-feet of torque is unmatched.

Differences between the SRT Viper and Viper GTS are primarily in equipment: the GTS gets a two-mode suspension system with Bilstein DampTronic Select dampers and the aforementioned extra stability control parameters. The SRT Viper is the more minimalist take on severe performance, while the GTS offers an extra degree of luxury and refinement in the cabin in addition to its upgraded suspension system and electronic controls.

The Viper’s cabin is surprisingly roomy for such a low-slung, coupe-only configuration. SRT claims drivers up to 6’7″ should fit within its confines. As a result, there’s plenty of head and leg room for most drivers, and the seats are both flexible and comfortable. The steering wheel and pedals also transfer to get the best possible fit. You’ll desire as much physical convenience in the 2014 Dodge SRT Viper as possible, as it’s an extremely noisy location to be, even cruising at reduced engine rates on a smooth country road. The trip quality is fair in base models, a bit better in GTS trim, but never really objectionable for a sports car. Cargo space is fair, at 14.65 cubic feet, but its odd shape means soft-sided bags will be the best bet for longer trips.

Gas mileage, as you might expect, isn’t one of the 2014 Dodge SRT Viper primary concerns. As a result, it gets 12 mpg city, 19 mpg freeway, and 15 mpg incorporated.

Price SRT Viper

Expensive, low-volume sports vehicles are frequently missed in the crash-testing cycle by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS); the 2014 SRT Viper is no exception. Despite the lack of crash tests, the Viper ought to prove as safe as most contemporary coupes in an accident, with a full suite of air bags, anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, and pre-tensioning safety belt all requirement. A backup camera is available on base models, and standard on GTS models.
