It’s been a few years now since Dodge released its redesign of the classic Dodge Challenger muscle car, yet reviewers are still singing its praises as the most reasonably priced car for the horsepower under the hood. Here are three big perks of owning a Dodge Challenger:
1) Good Power, No Matter What. The Dodge Challenger is available with four different motor options: the 3.6-liter V6 with 305 horsepower, the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 with 372 horsepower, the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 with 485 horsepower, and the 6.2-liter supercharged version Hemi V8 SRT Hellcat with 707 horsepower. The good news is that regardless of which engine you choose, reviewers agree that every one is great, while the ultimate Hellcat engine is so good, it’s “beyond verbal description.”
2) Size Does Matter. When it comes to having a muscle car like the Challenger, it’s still helpful when it can pull off the day-to-day functions of more “practical” cars. The Challenger has an ample trunk as well as a sizeable cabin that comfortably fits four grown adults, so you can take your three besties on your reunion road trip.
3) Bang for Your Buck. When it comes to power for price, the Challenger is hard to beat. The Hellcat option is a reasonable $67,000. While this may seem pricey, it’s a basement bargain compared to cars with similar capacities like Porsche and Ferrari that are at or above the $100,000 price range.
The Dodge Challenger is a thrill to drive. Stop by your local Dodge dealer to test drive it yourself or read more reviews of the 2016 Dodge Challenger.
