The Dodge Challenger combines muscle car flair with modern technology. Inline with its heritage, this latest Challenger features muscular styling, a spacious cabin and a choice of V6 and V8 engines. In contrast to its traditional namesake, it is equipped with the latest safety features and a modern independent suspension. Thanks to the latter, the Challenger manages to provide both a comfortable ride and surefooted handling. Due to its heft, it is not quite as quick around corners as some of its competitors, however.
The Challenger is available with three engines. The base 3.6-liter V6 produces 305 hp and comes mated to an automatic only. The 5.7-liter V8 available on the R/T trim provides much better performance, thanks to 372 hp with the automatic transmission and 376 hp with the manual. The top-of-the-line SRT8 comes powered by an even stronger 6.4-liter V8 with 470 hp that is mated to both manual and automatic transmissions.
