The Dodge Challenger | Features and Performance

The Sporting Life 2.0: Test Drive Dodge Challenger

It's not an understatement to say that our team consists of some of the Dodge Challenger's biggest fans. We love its throwback styling, 70's-esque sound and super-modern upgrades. Our inventory boasts the brightest examples of this standout ride. Here's a basic rundown and a few features that we love.

The Challenger's Trims That Win

Dodge Challenger's reputation as a favorite among muscle cars is undisputed. The brand keeps the fleet trend-forward with five vintage-inspired trims:

  • SXT
  • GT
  • R/T
  • R/T Scat Pack
  • SRT Hellcat

Challenger Widebody Packages

Our entire Hudson Chrysler Jeep Dodge team is ecstatic to report that the R/T Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat and the SRT Hellcat Redeye boast available Widebody packages. The Widebody package adds bigger brakes and adaptive shock absorbers. Bold, wide tires and widened fenders complete the package, adding major street cred and additional beef to the Dodge Challenger's iconic hood scoop, grille and body shape.

Classic Standby Shakes it Up

The Dodge Challenger is the sort of classic standby that stays relevant by constantly shaking up its game. Its exterior is fairly unchanged, calling to mind its very own 60s heyday design: a chiseled, expansive, low-riding silhouette. Scroll down to learn about the biggest changes. 

Exciting Model Year Upgrades

Although billed as a two-door coupe, the new Challenger seats five like a roomy sedan, with plenty in-cabin amenities to keep passengers comfortable, entertained or occupied. The current model year upgrades steal the spotlight. For 2020, there are:

  • A 50th Anniversary Edition (limited production)
  • Nine wheel designs and finishes, all brand new
  • More exterior and interior color options
  • Exclusive body-color shaker hood
  • Hand-painted black body panels (certain trims)
  • Upper trim interior options like nappa leather, faux suede, contrast stitching

Dodge Challenger Redefines Powertrain Options

Like a true sports and race enthusiast, Dodge built the challenger for people who like ridiculous power and agility. Whether you're cruising tight roads in Jersey City, NJ or on open roads, this ride offers the powertrain options to suit your preferences and your strictest requirements.

One V6 and two V8 engine options with a range of displacement capacities fuel the Dodge Challenger fleet and feed the hunger of the most ravenous speed demons:

  • 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, 303 horsepower, 268 lb.-ft. of torque
  • 5.7-liter HEMI V8, 375 horsepower, 410 lb.-ft. of torque
  • 392 HEMI V8, 485 horsepower, 475 lb.-ft. of torque
  • Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8, 717 horsepower, 656 lb.-ft. of torque
  • Supercharged 6.2-liter High-Output HEMI V8, 797 horsepower, 707 lb.-ft. of torque

Champion Transmissions for Powertrain Options

Depending on the trim level, you can pair one of the above engines with either a six-speed manual transmission or a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. The six-speed is standard on the R/T, R/T Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat.

Both transmissions types have advantages, and their advantages complement the driving styles many different types of drivers. Manual is more traditional in a sports/race car. It puts the power of gear-shifting directly in your hands, letting you bring mindful control to your acceleration and deceleration.

On the other hand, Torqueflite offers seamless gear-shifting with zero lag. This maximizes driver effort, making it easy to shift gears as needed. Plus, the Dodge Challenger's electronic shifter expedites buttery transfer and short throws, treating the driver to visual and physical feedback on gear selection.

Safe, Sound & Entertained

Short or long trips are a joy in the Dodge Challenger, thanks to major infotainment, connectivity and safety features. Its UConnect platform supports smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Navigation, voice-control and the latest apps are in the bag as well. Everything sounds lush and cinematic coming through the Dodge Challenger's 900-watt, 18-speaker surround sound system by Harman Kardon.

For safety, the Dodge Challenger is on-script and trend-forward, matching all of its competitors with key safety features like:

  • Automatic high beams
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Forward collision warning
  • Rear back up camera
