In the last few years, the muscle-car class has been contested by the Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang. The Challenger differs from the Mustang and Camaro with its larger size, unabashed retro look and boulevard-cruiser attitude. The Challenger’s bigger size permits much more backseat room and a sedan-size trunk, however do not believe this implies the Challenger is tame by comparison.
You have a wide range of options, varying from the 305-horsepower SXT V6 as much as the drag-strip-dominating Demon and its capacity for 840 horse power. When pitted versus its competitors, the 2018 Dodge Challenger does not have the sharp handling to keep up on a curvy roadway, however it bests them in convenience, refinement and pure retro appeal.
What’s New for 2018 Dodge Challenger?
As if the 707-horsepower Hellcat wasn’t enough, the 840-hp Demon joins the 2018 Challenger lineup with a narrow concentrate on drag-strip supremacy. Just 3,000 will be built for the United States. There’s also a brand-new SRT Widebody model based on the Hellcat, in addition to some cosmetic updates. In other places, there’s a brand-new Performance Handling package for 5.7-liter V8 models, the standard touchscreen grows, and all trims get a rearview video camera and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smart device integration.
2018 Dodge Challenger Trims Levels
The 2018 Dodge Challenger is a five-seat, two-door coupe that is offered in seven significant trim levels, most of which are further divided into numerous subtrims. Significant trim levels consist of the SXT, GT, R/T, R/T 392, SRT 392, SRT Hellcat and SRT Demon. The SXT and GT Challenger trims are powered by a V6; the others are driven by progressively more powerful V8s, culminating in the 840-hp Demon.
2018 Dodge Challenger Interior and Features
The Challenger is a king amongst coupes with its class-leading traveler and freight area. It’s a far more habitable day-to-day chauffeur than its coupe/muscle-car competition. However wrestling the large doors open up to gain access can be a challenge. We’ve had a lot of experience with older versions of Dodge’s infotainment system, Uconnect, and we’ve even evaluated the newest Uconnect 8.4 system in other cars. We have not tested it in the Challenger yet, but in those other cars, it offers crisp graphics, quick responses and simple, rational menus.
