Dodge Challenger Overview

The look is old school, yet this car is a modern, thrilling barnstormer. It's too heavy and wide for ultimate agility but it surprises with balanced and enjoyable cornering on an open track. Ride comfort, noise isolation, and the stiff shifter and clutch detract and the view out is dreadful. The rear seat is roomy but getting back there is awkward. Performance packages include a 485-hp, V8, and a 707-hp, 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. Safety tech includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path detection, and forward-collision warning.
