Dodge Challenger Reviews


There’s a whole lot of Dodge Challengers out there. You can watch three or four of these classic muscle cars drive by and none of them will look alike or sound the same as they peel away. Why are they all so different? Over the years, Dodge has created an array of engine options, exterior styling choices, and general trim levels. So, personalizing the Challenger is an easy and exciting endeavor.

At Harr CDJR, we’ve created resources to help you learn about the many Challenger variations. Our Dodge Challenger reviews and comparisons are especially handy.


Choosing Your Dodge Challenger Engine

Dodge Challenger Performance

The best place to start when customizing your Dodge Challenger is under the hood. The Dodge brand as a whole emphasizes power and performance with the Challenger being the brand’s tried-and-true muscle car. From the standard V6 to a bevvy of V8 engines, you can spec your Challenger however you see fit.

The base 3.6L V6 turns out a strong 303 horsepower. Moving to the first V8 means you’ll have access to 375 horsepower from a 5.7L HEMI®. Things only get crazier from there. Here are the top V8 offerings in the lineup and their outputs:

  • 392 HEMI® V8: 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque
  • Supercharged 6.2L HEMI® V8: 717 horsepower and 656 lb-ft of torque
  • Supercharged 6.2L High-Output HEMI® V8: 797-807 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque

Putting down all this power is possible thanks to new-age technology systems such as line lock, launch assist, and launch control. There’s also a range of Drive Modes to pick from, including Track, Sport, Custom, Auto, Eco, and Valet.


Choosing Your Dodge Challenger Trim Level

Dodge Challenger Trim Levels

The trim lineup for the Dodge Challenger is as crazy and exciting as the engine lineup. Picking the exact styling, features, and capability you want from your Challenger means comparing these trims side by side.

The list starts with the standard SXT trim and quickly moves to the GT and R/T trims. Next is the popular R/T Scat Pack featuring Brembo 4-piston 4-wheel disc performance brakes, a heated steering wheel, and heated front seats.

The next trim is the R/T Scat Pack Widebody that alters the exterior styling to create a more aggressive look. Then, you begin to reach the Hellcat trims:

  • SRT Hellcat
  • SRT Hellcat Widebody
  • SRT Hellcat Redeye
  • SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody

Each Hellcat comes with at least 717 horsepower and 656 lb-ft of torque. The Redeye options improve that output to 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque.

The top trim level is the drag race-ready SRT Super Stock featuring 807 horsepower, 707 lb-ft of torque, and the ability to complete a ¼-mile run in 10.5 seconds at 131 MPH.
