Overview

What's New

The 2020 Dodge Challenger receives mild appearance enhancements, including new colors, wheels finishes, and badging. Models equipped with leather get premium stitching on the door panels and dashboard.

Select models are eligible for a limited-production 50th Anniversary Edition appearance package that includes hand-painted gloss black panels (hood, roof, trunk lid) and a Nappa leather interior with carbon fiber accents. It's priced from $4,995 and production is very limited – see your dealer for ordering information.

Choosing Your Dodge Challenger

The Challenger comes in six trim levels: SXT, GT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat, and SRT Hellcat Redeye. Pricing starts modestly enough at $29,590 including destination and goes all the way up to $73,440 for the SRT Hellcat Redeye.

Engine Choices

The Dodge Challenger is available with a V6 engine (SXT and GT), a 5.7-liter V8 (R/T), or a 6.4-liter V8 (R/T Scat Pack). The SRT Hellcat packs a supercharged 6.2-liter V8, and the SRT Hellcat Redeye gets a high-output version of the same.

6.2L Supercharged V8SRT Hellcat717 hp656 lb-ft16 mpg
6.2L Supercharged V8SRT Hellcat Redeye797hp707lb-ft16 mpg

The V6 comes standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission. It's the only engine available with all-wheel drive ($3,000). Rear-wheel drive is standard elsewhere.

The 5.7-liter and 6.4-liter V8s start with a six-speed manual transmission. The automatic can be added for $1,595. The automatic remains optional on the SRT Hellcat ($2,995) but comes standard on the Redeye version.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Challenger offers more interior space than most coupes. Four adults can fit comfortably, and there's room enough for five on short trips. The trunk holds 16.2 cubic feet, as good or better than a family sedan.

To free up space and conserve weight, V8 Challengers are available without the rear seat.

Safety Features

Driver assistance technology is available in two progressive option packages. The $1,095 Driver Convenience Group provides blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights. The package also includes rear parking sensors for the SXT — they're standard everywhere else. These features (along with several convenience items) are also available in the $3,195 Plus Package for the SXT, GT, and R/T.

The $1,295 Technology Group adds automatic high beams, rain-sensing wipers, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warning. The latter two features aren't available on the Redeye or models with the manual transmission, so the package price drops to $495.

Automatic emergency braking isn't available on any Challenger. We expect it to come with the next redesign, which could be as soon as 2021.

Connectivity

The Challenger's standard Uconnect infotainment system features a 7-inch touchscreen, two USB ports, six audio speakers, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

An 8.4-inch version of Uconnect (with navigation, a wi-fi hot spot, and HD and satellite radio) is available on the SXT, GT, and R/T for $1,095 – or as part of the Plus Package. These features come standard on R/T Scat Pack and above, except for navigation, which can be added for $795.

SXT - From $29,590

The STX comes nicely equipped with a power driver seat, push button start, dual-zone climate control, houndstooth cloth upholstery, and 18-inch satin-finish aluminum wheels.

Most options for the STX are available in the Plus Package ($3,000), which includes the Driver Convenience Group and the 8.4-inch version of Unconnect, plus leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power-adjustable heated steering wheel, rear parking sensors, remote start, fog lights, and 20-inch wheels. Adding a sunroof costs $1,295.

GT - From $32,140

The GT takes performance up a notch with a sport-tuned suspension, paddle shifters, a functional hood scoop, a front splitter, and standard 20-inch wheels.

The Performance Handling Group ($1,495) goes further with Brembo brakes, a flat-bottom steering wheel with shift controls, black wheels, and brake calipers, and even firmer suspension tuning.

R/T - From $36,090

The R/T adds the 5.7-liter V8 to the Challenger's performance profile.

Additional options for the R/T include the Performance Plus Package, which adds forged aluminum wheels and summer performance tires for $1,595. The Shaker Package ($2,500) furnishes a shaker hood, black exterior accents, and white-faced instruments with gloss black trim rings.

R/T Scat Pack - From $41,740

The R/T Scat Pack runs with the 6.4-liter V8, supplemented by launch control and standard Brembo brakes. The 8.4-inch version of Uconnect comes standard, along with heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

The Plus Package for the Scat Pack adds Nappa leather seating and ambient interior lighting for $1,695. The Dynamics Package ($2,200) includes six-piston front brakes, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and forged aluminum wheels.

SRT Hellcat - From $62,440

The SRT Hellcat packs the 717-hp version of the supercharged 6.2-liter V8. An adaptive suspension and six-piston front brakes come standard, along with cold air intakes on the hood. The Uconnect system features performance data screens.

Exclusive to the SRT is premium Laguna leather upholstery for $1,795.

SRT Hellcat Redeye - From $73,440

The most beastly Challenger of them all, the Hellcat Redeye is capable of 200+ mph thanks to the 797-hp supercharged V8 under its hood. Aside from that, the Redeye shares its equipment and options with the regular Hellcat.

CarsDirect Tip

While the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT models are undeniably thrilling, few buyers will have the opportunity to sample their true capability. Unless you intend to hit the track on a regular basis, the R/T models will provide more than enough performance. Choosing a V6 Challenger may seem like blasphemy to some, but its near-perfect balance of power and efficiency is an achievement in its own right.

Aged to perfection. Truly, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For its faithful fans, the 2020 Dodge Challenger looks just as handsome as it did when it was released way back in 2008.

The Challenger relies on an iconic design with modern touches to pull it off. It's noticeably larger and heavier than its chief competitors, the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang, and it offers a contemporary interpretation of the coke-body layout popularized by the original.

Dodge offers the Challenger in a variety of styles, but even the standard SXT offers available stripes and decals for a nominal price. The standard carbon aluminum wheels look great, and there are nine exterior color choices for consideration. Move up through the trim range and hood scoops, shakers, and wider wheel wells give this sport coupe a more aggressive look.

Every year, Dodge develops at least one special model, a formula that keeps the Challenger relevant after 13 years. The SRT Hellcat Widebody Redeye is this year's flavor, delivering on-point style to match its standout performance.

Power to the people. The base Challenger has a 3.6-liter V6 engine with a satisfying 305 horsepower. It's the engine of choice for buyers who want the look, but not the cost outlay or diminished fuel economy of a big V8.

It's the V8 engines that get all the attention, offering performance levels ranging from 375 to almost 797 hp. Shoppers have a choice of 5.7- or 6.4-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engines or a supercharged 6.2-liter V8. The latter motivates the range-topping Hellcat models.

Although heavy and bulky, V8-powered Challengers are fast. Its strength is on the straightaways, but the adaptive dampers on the upper trim models make this sport coupe a joy in cornering.

All that power comes at the expense of fuel economy: you'll be hard-pressed to achieve 15 miles per gallon combined if you regularly engage in spirited driving.


Dodge Challenger

Everything you want. We already hinted that the Challenger can be personally customized. Dodge makes it easy by offering a variety of wheel and body trim designs. There's just no need to aftermarket shop when the options list includes nearly everything you want. From alloy wheels to enhanced brakes to a high-performance suspension system to improved are engine cooling, it's all there.

Inside, the cabin is roomy, at least upfront. The standard cloth seats are first-rate and there are various leather-trimmed options with thickly bolstered front seats to consider. The rear seats are cramped and most useful for children, but only occasionally. It's dark back there and lonely.

We like the 16.2 cubic foot trunk, which will swallow up nearly everything it can take. The opening is small, however, so that big bike of yours just won't fit.

Today's technology. What's not iconic about the Challenger is its technology, and that's a good thing. The standard 7-inch touchscreen interface for infotainment is highly useful and welcome. You can upgrade to an 8.4-inch screen too.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility come standard. You'll find at least one USB port and even the base audio package satisfies. Among the upgrades is an Alpine audio system and navigation, although we wouldn't spring for the latter if we're using our smartphones.

Although we laud Dodge for its technology, the Challenger isn't up to the challenge on the safety front. There's an optional forward-collision warning system, but it won't stop the Challenger from crashing, as it lacks automatic emergency braking. Ford and Chevrolet have more robust systems in place; we're waiting for Dodge to upgrade its possibilities.

Final thoughts. The 2020 Dodge Challenger keeps its classic looks and high horsepower to once again make it a muscle car favorite. It's large, comfortable, and offers modern infotainment features. We just wish the safety offerings were as up to date as the connectivity ones. Looks to rivals if you're seeking more of those or a more stylish cabin.
