Dodge Challenger Overview

The look may be old school, yet the Challenger is a modern, thrilling straight-line barnstormer. But it's too heavy and wide for handling finesse, and the view out is dreadful. Performance packages include a 485-hp, 6.4-liter Hemi V8, and the Hellcat uses a 707-hp, 6.2-liter supercharged V8. Transmission choices are a six-speed manual and a new eight-speed automatic. Base models stick with the 3.6-liter V6, but we prefer the 5.7-liter V8. And 2015 brings new electric power steering, an updated suspension, improved feel for the electronic shifter, and a redesigned interior. Safety tech includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path detection, and forward-collision warning.
