Overview

What's New

The 2022 Dodge Challenger coupe carries over with minimal changes. The current Challenger hit the streets back in 2011 and received its last substantial update in 2015. Sales remain strong after all these years.

Choosing your Dodge Challenger

The 2022 Challenger continues in five trim levels: SXT, GT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and SRT Hellcat. Pricing starts at $31,275 including destination and goes to $64,675 (including $1,700 gas guzzler tax) for the SRT Hellcat before options.

Engine Choices

The Challenger engine roster includes a V6, two normally aspirated V8s, and a supercharged V8 with up to 807 horsepower.

The SXT and GT come exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission. A six-speed manual is standard on the R/T and R/T Scat pack, and buyers can upgrade to the automatic for $1,595. The manual is standard on the SRT Hellcat as well, and the automatic costs $2,995. The Redeye and Super Stock come with the automatic only.

All-wheel drive is available on the V6-powered SXT and GT only for $2,605.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Challenger offers room for four adults. The backseat isn't exactly spacious, but you could do a lot worse in this class. The trunk holds 16.2 cubic feet, a good deal more than other performance coupes.

Safety Features

Driver assistance technology is optional on the Challenger, something to keep in mind when comparing base prices in this class. The $1,480 Driver Convenience Group provides blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights. On the SXT, the package also includes rear parking sensors, which are standard on subsequent trims.

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

Note that automatic emergency braking still isn't available on any Challenger.

Connectivity

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

The optional 8.4-inch system ($1,295) includes navigation, a wi-fi hot spot, and HD and satellite radio. These items are standard starting with the R/T Scat Pack, except for navigation, which can be added for $995.

2022 Dodge Challenger SXT — MSRP From $31,275

The SXT starts off 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 SXT are bundled into the $3,095 Plus Package, which includes the Driver Convenience Group and the 8.4-inch infotainment system, plus leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power-adjustable heated steering wheel, remote start, fog lights, and 20-inch wheels. A single-panel sunroof is available for $1,295.

2022 Dodge Challenger GT — MSRP From $34,550

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 ($1,595) goes further with Brembo brakes, a flat-bottom steering wheel with shift controls, black wheels and brake calipers, and even firmer suspension tuning.

2022 Dodge Challenger R/T — MSRP From $38,825

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 ($2,595) furnishes a shaker hood, black exterior accents, and white-faced instruments with gloss black trim rings.

The R/T Scat Pack receives the 6.4-liter V8, plus launch control and standard Brembo brakes. All models come with heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Pricing includes a $1,000 gas guzzler tax.

The Plus Package for the Scat Pack ($1,695) includes Nappa leather seating and ambient interior lighting. The Dynamics Package ($2,395) tacks on six-piston front brakes, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and forged aluminum wheels. This bundle is standard on the Widebody variant ($6,295), which carries two-inch wider wheels and adaptive suspension with ride stiffness settings.

2022 Dodge SRT Hellcat — MSRP From $64,675

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.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2022 Dodge Challenger R/T is the best performance value of the bunch and tame enough for everyday driving. Competitive drivers can reach for an SRT model.

Ageless Wonder. You can’t talk about the 2022 Dodge Challenger and not mention its age. The last time Dodge gave the Challenger a large update was in 2008. That makes the Challenger 14 years old, which is ancient for anything that’s not a pickup truck. Despite its age, the Challenger continues to be a popular option. In fact, the Dodge Challenger had an excellent year in 2021, accounting for 54,314 units sold, beating the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro.

The Challenger has aged incredibly well, featuring a design that continues to have just the right amount of retro cues, while being relevant. It’s not nearly as modern as the Camaro or as recognizable as the Mustang, but the Challenger’s muscular lines are reminiscent of past muscle cars. We think it’s the best looking of the muscular coupes on sale today.

Heroic V8 Engines. Dodge offers the Challenger with six different engines. The V8s are the star of the show, but they’re pricey. Plus, the standard 3.6-liter V6 engine that makes 303 horsepower has something the other muscle coupes don’t — available all-wheel drive. The V6 isn’t the most exciting engine, but its AWD system is unique for the segment and a great feature for those in snowy climates.

We think most people shopping for a Challenger will be happy with the 5.7-liter V8 engine. It has a guttural sound while pumping out up to 375 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. For even more power, there’s an available 6.4-liter V8 that’s rated at 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. This engine is as high as we recommend going, as getting to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds is plenty quick. Plus, these two V8s are the only ones available with a six-speed manual transmission.

The four range-topping Challengers come with a version of Dodge’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8 Hellcat engine. Output goes from 717 hp in the SRT Hellcat, 797 hp in the SRT Hellcat Redeye, and 807 hp in the new Jailbreak trim and the SRT Super Stock. The SRT Super Stock is capable of getting to 60 mph in just 3.25 seconds and is one of the most powerful cars on sale today.

With their hellacious growls, neck-snapping performance, and tire-burning capability, the supercharged V8 engines are beasts that never get old.

Drag Racing In Mind. While the Camaro and Mustang are available in high-performance models that are meant for heavy track use, the Challenger comes from a simpler time when going straight was more than enough. Even in its insanely powerful models, the Challenger is better suited at drag racing than a windy road. Call us crazy, but the Challenger is the most realistic take on a modern muscle car out of the bunch.

When not at a drag strip, the Challenger is a comfortable car for a highway cruise. The coupe’s elongated wheelbase, enormous power, and old platform make it a handful to drive on a windy road. Weighing shy of 4,000 pounds, the Challenger weighs almost as much as a midsize SUV. Add the weight with the outdated platform, numb steering, and slow-to-reach chassis and the Challenger is something that struggles to corner half as well as the Mustang or Camaro. The other two have morphed into offering similar performance to sports cars these days.

Slow the Challenger down on the highway and it behaves far better. Its ride evens out and without the need to make any sharp turns, it feels like it’s at home.

Modern Tech Features. The Challenger comes with an excellent infotainment system that's easy to use and available with one of the largest touchscreens in the class. A seven-inch touchscreen is standard, as are Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, two USB ports, and six audio speakers. A massive 8.4-inch touchscreen is available. Both come with Dodge’s Uconnect infotainment system that has good graphics, quick response times, and simple menus.

A rearview camera is the only noteworthy standard feature on the Challenger, but the coupe is available with a lengthy list of modern safety features. Forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot monitoring are available.

Final Thoughts. The old, outdated 2022 Dodge Challenger carves out a niche in the small American muscle car segment. While it doesn’t have the agile handling as the Mustang or Camaro, its retro design, spacious cabin, and incredibly powerful engines do enough to draw shoppers in. The Challenger definitely isn’t a sports car, but it is a modern take on an old-school muscle car.

The Chevrolet Camaro is the sharpest of the trio to drive. It’s available with a wide range of engines that include a four-cylinder engine up to a supercharged V8. It’s not as spacious, comfortable, or easy to live with as the Challenger.

The Ford Mustang splits the line between being a comfortable cruise and a sports car. The range-topping Shelby GT500 is a track beast, while other V8-equipped Mustangs are more than capable enough for a track day. The Mustang’s interior is starting to look dated and the base four-cylinder engine isn’t all that exciting.
