2020 Dodge Challenger: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

To say the Dodge Challenger is ancient is an understatement. The 2019 model year marks its 12th year without a redesign since it burst back onto the scene, which makes it about 75 in car years. Fortunately, it has seen plenty of nips and tucks to keep it fresh, including the 2019 arrival of the 707-horsepower SRT Hellcat model that helped this aging sports coupe rank No. 2 in sales in its class. While we don’t expect a full redesign until the mid-2020s, the 2020 Dodge Challenger may get a light refresh. Here’s what you may see.

If the 2020 Dodge Challenger gets a refreshed look, expect nothing dramatically different from what we have today. It will continue with the same retro-modern design language it had since 2008 but will likely include refreshed front and rear fascias and some new style packages. Nothing over the top, but enough to keep it fresh.

Inside, the Dodge Challenger has long featured a simple layout with a lot of black. This plays well with the muscle-car demographic seeking simplicity in the cabin, and we expect this to remain the same in the 2020 Dodge Challenger. If there is a refreshed 2020 Challenger, we could see some under-the-skin updates, like a new infotainment system, more audio options, or upgraded materials.

Though there are rumblings of electrified powertrains in the next-generation Challenger, we expect no major changes under the 2020 Challenger’s hood. If this proves true, the lineup will start with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that will deliver 305 horsepower. Next will be a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with up to 375 hp. Move up another notch to get a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 with 485 hp. Topping the range will be the refreshed-for-2019 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 with 717 hp.

The current Dodge Challenger’s age shows in its crash tests, as it received only “Acceptable” rating in the roof-strength and head-restraining and seats test. This all leads to it not even qualifying to be a Top Safety Pick. We expect this to all remain the same in the 2020 Dodge.

Pricing & Release Date

With no big changes coming, we expect the 2020 Dodge Challenger's pricing to remain similar to the current model, which ranges from $29,340 to $65,185 (destination fees included). We expect 2020 Dodge Challenger.

The 2020 Dodge Challenger will battle with the Ford Mustang, Chevy Camaro, and Nissan 370Z.
