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

Dodge's resident muscle car may look like a throwback to a different era, but the Challenger has kept pace with the times. In fact, the Challenger formula works better today than it ever has. Buyers looking for a potent combination of performance and charisma might just find this car irresistible.

What's New for 2017

Dodge updated the available 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment interface with faster processing, additional controls, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. All V8 models receive an active exhaust system. A new T/A trim package adds unique styling elements to high-performance models, and a V6-powered GT trim adds all-wheel drive.

Choosing Your Dodge Challenger

The deep engine roster starts with a 3.6-liter V6 that makes 305 horsepower. The six-cylinder Challenger is the only one with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission. Customers also have a choice of two normally aspirated Hemi V8s – a 375-horsepower 5.7-liter and a 6.4-liter with 485 horsepower. A supercharged, 6.2-liter V8 with 707 horsepower is exclusive to the range-topping SRT Hellcat. All V8 Challengers comes standard with a standard six-speed manual transmission and an optional eight-speed automatic.

As usual, the Challenger is available in a vast array of trims:

Dodge Challenger


A V6 engine and a nice load of standard features, including a power driver seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless ignition, heated side mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and 18-inch wheels. The six-speaker sound system includes Bluetooth compatibility and a 5-inch version of the UConnect infotainment interface.

Dodge Challenger

SXT Plus

Retains the V6, but adds upgraded brakes and suspension components shared with V8 models. Includes 20-inch wheels, fog lights, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, a power-adjustable heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated sport seats, and leather upholstery. An 8.4-inch UConnect infotainment system controls a standard Alpine stereo.

Dodge Challenger


V6 power mated to a standard eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive. Will arrive in dealerships late in the first quarter of 2017.

Dodge Challenger


Carries the 5.7-liter V8, along with stouter brakes and suspension, and a louder exhaust system. Fog lamps and 20-inch wheels are standard.

Dodge Challenger

R/T Plus

Adds the comfort and convenience upgrades found in the SXT Plus (leather, rearview camera, Alpine sound, etc.)

Dodge Challenger

R/T Shaker

Features a Shaker hood with a cold air induction scoop, plus a sport steering wheel and black exterior trim.

Dodge Challenger

R/T Shaker Plus

Same as above, but with the "Plus" interior and technology content.

Dodge Challenger


Equipped like the R/T Shaker, but without its special hood. Instead, the T/A gets unique air intakes mounted next to the headlamps and body trim shared with the top-of-line Hellcat.

Dodge Challenger

T/A Plus

Enhances the T/A with the same upgrades found in other Plus models.

Dodge Challenger

R/T Scat Pack

Ratchets up performance with the 6.4-liter V8, Brembo brakes, and specific suspension tuning. The Plus content is standard. The Scat Pack can be identified by its black rear spoiler.

Dodge Challenger

392 Scat Pack Shaker

Combines the features of the R/T Scat Pack (including the 6.4-liter) with the Shaker content.

Dodge Challenger

T/A 392

Also gives you the R/T Scat Pack content, along with the special T/A styling elements.

Dodge Challenger

SRT 392

Comes with all the performance upgrades available on the lesser models, plus an adaptive suspension, reconfigurable driving modes, and the SRT Performance Pages data center.

Dodge Challenger

SRT Hellcat

Packs the 707-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged V8, along with its own high-performance suspension, quad exhaust tips, and unique styling elements.

The available Driver Assistance Package (standard on SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat) tacks on blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, power-folding mirrors, xenon headlamps, and remote start. That pack is a prerequisite for the Technology Package (standard on SRT Hellcat), which adds adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams and wipers, and front collision warning.

CarsDirect Tip

If you're in the market for the SXT or R/T, we heartily recommend the Plus versions of these models. You get a ton of interior upgrades and some important functional features for around $3,000. Note that the SRT models are a lot more exclusive than the rest of the line and are priced accordingly.
