Having towed both 2500kg and 3000kg (as an experiment) with my 3000kg rated tow capacity Challenger with 131kW and 350Nm, it is not a weight I would be towing on a regular basis or over longer distances. When we were testing Auto Mate and Lockup Mate for the Challenger we used 2,000kg as the testing load, it was much easier on the car and driver especially since most of the testing was done in the height of Adelaide’s hot summer!
The NS has the same Jatco Auto Trans but with a lower slip ratio of the Torque Convertor (1.61 vs 2.04) and although the NS had the 3.2CRD engine vs the Callengers 2.5CRD engine the 3.2 produced less kW but a few more Nm. All gear and diff ratios are identical.
