Ever since the Challenger's 2009 reincarnation as a retro-modern muscle car, Dodge has made a series of civilizing upgrades to the interior, improved the handling, and given it the latest version of Chrysler's accomplished touch-screen infotainment system. Rest assured, the brazen attitude remains.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"old school pony car acceleration and sound"

Anonymous, ON (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"Performance comparable and some instances exceeds that of a 1968 muscle car I once owned."

Dennis R., CA (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"feeling of effortless power"

Anonymous, VA (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"Real fun to drive with very brisk acceleration and handling."

Anonymous, AZ (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"It's the coolest car ever made! Great styling and acceleration in a distinctive look.Other cars all look alike but the Challenger is unique and muscular looking. The car feels very fast and controlled and all the systems work flawlessly!"

Michael A., FL (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"Ummm.... 0-60 under 3 seconds real world. Massive noise and just the craziness of the whole car. American Muscle is back! And you can use it as a daily if you buy the extra wheels and tires. Really a remarkable car. Amazing that a car company actually built it. Thank you Sergio! RIP!"

Ryan F., UT (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"Excellent handling and acceleration."

Anonymous, NY (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"It has a 392 hemi in it. It has awesome acceleration and it handles the curves just fine."

Anonymous, MS (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"The vehicle has impressive acceleration. Handling is just okay. Perhaps with better tires the handling could improve."

Jacob W., OH (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"The performance and handling are thrilling and best in class. Most fun car to drive that I’ve ever owned."

Eric W., MI (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"The acceleration, braking, cornering and ride are exceptional in this car. It has a real back seat suitable for an adult. The trunk space is quite good but I wish it had a spare tire. Visibility around the roof sides in back is limiting as in all cars with this design but there is good visibility out the back window."

Anonymous, MO (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"One of the best looking and fun to drive car that I have ever owned."

William F., MD (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"Very balanced car. Drives very smoothly and acceleration comes on strong when needed and braking is outstanding. Handling is world class"

Anonymous, IN (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"It's a beast."

Walter K., NJ (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"Fast and effortless acceleration. Eight speed auto trans works w/ engine seamlessly. Multi-displacement system helps to increase fuel mileage when the car is driven smoothly. Flat, responsive, and predictable handling."

Steven R., MI (2018 Dodge Challenger)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Seats should be full power and have memory."

Anonymous, CA (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"Extremely comfortable front seats, quiet cabin and sporty ride."

Anonymous, NY (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"The Demon is crazy. You get a car that is basically a street legal race car strait out of the box. But nice enough you can drive it to work. Seats and room are awesome for a big guy. Very comfortable to drive. Oh and so brilliantly fun!"

Ryan F., UT (2018 Dodge Challenger)

"The seats are very comfortable including the heat and cool features. They offer good support over multiple hour drives. The large bolster makes ingress a task unless the seat is moved away from the steering wheel a bit further. Ride is firm but forgiving. There is a satisfying exhaust note at highway speeds but not other noise is present."

Anonymous, MO (2018 Dodge Challenger)

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"My 2018 Challenger R/T Scat Pack had a sticker price of over $46,000. For that price I expected memory seats/mirrors/radio presets. I also expected express up windows. After all, the car only has two. A car of this trim level that has a lot of matte black features and no chrome should provide that big fuel door with the matte black fuel door, not the chrome one I got. That one big disk of chrome looks way out of place on that car!"

Gary R., MI (2018 Dodge Challenger)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
