The look may be old-school, yet the Challenger is a modern, thrilling barnstormer. It's too heavy and wide for pinpoint handling on narrow roads, but it's balanced and enjoyable on an open track. The V8 sound is heartwarming. Ride comfort, noise isolation, and the stiff shifter and clutch detract, and the view out is dreadful. The rear seat is relatively roomy, but access is awkward. Performance packages include a 485-hp, 6.4-liter V8; a 707-hp, 6.2-liter supercharged V8 in the Hellcat; and a 808-hp, 6.2-liter V8 in the Demon. A six-speed manual and an eight-speed automatic are available. We prefer the 5.7-liter V8 over the base V6. Safety tech includes blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic warning, and forward-collision warning. A GT trim, with all-wheel drive and a V6 engine, is also available.
