The Dodge Challenger—a late entry in the muscle car segment—arrived in 1970, just as the category’s sales began to cool off. It lasted only until 1974. Dodge revived the Challenger moniker a few years later for a car quite unlike its namesake: a badge-engineered version of the Mitsubishi Galant coupe.
The third generation Challenger, however, harkens back to the style and performance of the original. True to muscle car tradition, buyers may choose engines that produce horsepower ranging from adequate to tremendous: the range-topping SRT8 392 churns out 470 horsepower.
