Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2016 Dodge Challenger OVERVIEW

Last year was a momentous one for Dodge's retro-classic muscle coupe. Redesigned on a new platform, Challenger gained new features, additional models, and even hotter performance.

Heading the excitement was the new Challenger SRT Hellcat, an aptly named screamer destined to enter the auto history books. Based upon the 1971 Challenger, the revived model debuted for 2008 to tease Ford’s Mustang and, two years later, the retro-look Chevrolet Camaro. Neither of those models has a lineup close to the diversity of Dodge’s two-door muscle car.

What's New for 2016

Updates are minor for 2016: most notably, a Blacktop Appearance group that can give SXT and R/T models a blacked-out look. Plum Crazy has been revived as a “heritage” color for 2016 models, while the Hellcat gains Laguna leather upholstery.

Choosing Your Dodge Challenger

In SXT coupes, the 3.6-liter V6 engine makes 305 horsepower, teamed with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

  • HEMI-engine fanciers have a choice of two normally aspirated V8s: a 375-horsepower 5.7-liter in the R/T, and a 6.4-liter with 485 horsepower in the R/T ScatPack duo and the SRT 392.
  • The ferocious Hellcat’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8 stirs up a jaw-dropping 707 horsepower, transforming the Challenger into the fastest muscle car ever produced.

A six-speed manual transmission is standard with any V8; the eight-speed automatic is optional.

The Challenger lineup consists of ten trim levels:
