Expert Rating

Not Available

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.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Dodge Challenger

John Diether
Automotive Editor - January 9, 2020
  • 2020 Challenger arriving; 2019s still in good supply
  • Huge rebates up to $7,970 on 2019s; $1,250 on 2020s
  • Lease a 2019 from $319 for 42 months
  • 0% APR for 36 months on both model years

Choice of model years:

The carryover 2020 Challenger began arriving at dealers last month, and supplies are still building. Selection will continue to improve over the next few months. The 2019 Challenger remains in decent supply nationwide.

When you get to the dealer, expect to find a healthy selection of V6-powered Challenger SXT models on hand and enough V8 R/T and T/A models to go around. The high-performance SRT models are produced in far fewer numbers. The SRTs were previously excluded from factory offers, but now carry some of the highest rebates we've ever seen on the Challenger.

Current factory offers will remain in effect through February 3, 2020. Lease promotions listed below are available on a national basis. Rebates and APR offers can vary by region. Figures shown here are for California.

Plenty of cash offers:

The 2019 Challenger SXT and GT now come with a $3,050 rebate for all buyers. The rebate on the R/T stands at $3,750. With the available Scat Pack, the rebate jumps to $4,850.

At the top of the lineup, the 2019 SRT Hellcat carries a $7,170 rebate, while the SRT Hellcat Redeye gets a staggering $7,970 rebate.

As for the 2020 Challenger, the SRT models come with a $1,000 rebate, and the other trims carry a $1,250 rebate.

What to expect on a lease:

As before, the 2019 Challenger SXT starts at $319 for 42 months (12,000 miles a year) with $3,949 due at signing.

The effective monthly cost is $413, which is on the high side for this price class. There's a good chance terms will improve before the 2019s sell out.

The 2020 Challenger SXT goes for $349 a month with everything else the same. That's even worse in terms of value, so we'd wait for something better to come along, perhaps by spring.

APR hits 0%:

Instead of the cash rebate on a 2019 Challenger, you can get special financing starting at 0% for 36 months on all trims except the SRT. Terms up to 72 months are available at incrementally higher rates.

The same rates are now available on the 2020 Challenger, and you can combine them with this month's rebates.

2020 Dodge Challenger: Model Preview

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - October 11, 2019

Model Preview

The current-generation Dodge Challenger might as well be encased in amber, as its last redesign came way back in 2008. Entering its 12th model year, the 2020 Challenger will hit showrooms with a slew of updates but with virtually the same design. Here’s what we expect when to see when this muscle car arrives.

Though it hasn’t been through a redesign since 2008, the Challenger has seen its share of soft-part updates, including restyled front fascias, new taillights, and updated wheels over the years. We expect much of the same from this potent coupe in the coming model year. The 2020 Challenger will arrive with nine new wheel options, including standard 19-inch Satin Carbon rollers on the SXT AWD and GT AWD trims, and standard 20s on the GT RWD grade. Rounding out the exterior updates will be updated badges and three new paint options: Frostbite, Hellraisin, and Sinamon Stick.

Inside, the 2020 Dodge Challenger will continue with the same basic cabin it’s had for over a decade but with a few updates to enhance its look and feel. The two most notable updates will include a premium-stitched dash and upper door panels on all leather-equipped models and new instrument panel badges. Other changes will consist of optional carbon-fiber bezels with the Dynamica suede headliner on V8 models; an optional flat-bottom steering wheel for the GT RWD, R/T, and R/T Scat Pack; and a new Caramel Alcantara color option on GT, R/T, and R/T Scat Pack models.

Powering the 2020 Challenger will be the same crew of engine options, starting with a 305-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 in the SXT and GT models. In the R/T trim, this coupe will boast a 375-hp 5.7-liter HEMI V8. Moving into the R/T Scat Pack and Scat Pack Widebody trims will drop in a 485-hp 392-cubic-inch V8. Opt for one of the wild SRT Hellcat models and get a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with 717 hp in the standard model or 797 hp in the Hellcat Redeye trim.

2020 Dodge Challenger

These engines will mate with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional eight-speed automatic in the R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and SRT Hellcat grades. The SXT, SXT AWD, GT, GT AWD, and SRT Hellcat Redeye trims will all come standard with the eight-speed automatic. Rear-wheel drive will come standard in all trims other than the SXT AWD and GT AWD, which will come standard with all-wheel drive.

The current Challenger shows its age in IIHS safety testing with “Good” ratings in only the moderate-overlap front and side tests. In the three other crash tests, this performance rig received “Moderate” or “Acceptable” ratings. Advanced safety tech is another sore spot with its optional forward-collision warning system receiving only a “Basic” score in the critical front-crash-prevention test. Automatic emergency braking is not available in the current Challenger. Dodge made no improvements to the 2020 Challenger’s safety equipment, so we expect these ratings to remain the same.

This model will compete with the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, and the Dodge Charger.
