The look may be old school, yet the Challenger is a modern, thrilling straight-line barnstormer.
It's too heavy and wide for pinpoint handling on narrow roads, but it's balanced and enjoyable on an open track.
Its V8 sound is heartwarming.
Ride comfort, noise isolation, and the manual transmission's stiff shifter and clutch detract from the overall driving experience, and the view out to any direction is dreadful.
The rear seat is relatively roomy, but getting in and out is awkward.
Engine choices range from a mild V6 up to a 6.2-liter supercharged V8, but we think the best choice is the 5.7-liter V8.
All-wheel drive is optional with the V6.
A six-speed manual and an eight-speed automatic are available.
FCW, BSW, and RCTW are just optional, and it's disappointing that AEB with pedestrian detection isn't even available.
