In the muscle car area of the 60’s and 70’s the Dodge Challenger was on the most significant cars to come off the assembly line. After 40 years the Challenger is once again driving down the roads of America. The new Challenger still features the styling cues similar to the first models and maintains serious horsepower to the rear wheels making this car a true street fighter. But like its predecessor from years ago, the new Dodge Challenger is loaded with modern day safety features and refinement.
The Dodge Challenger offers strong acceleration with either the V8 which is no surprise, but the V6 in no slouch either offering plenty of get up and go. Also unsurprising is the bulky feel in corners that are tight, but its character on the road more than compensates for it. The current muscle car uprising in recent years has made a comeback, like the resurrection of the Camaro and Mustang, but the Dodge Challenger still holds its own and is a pleasure to drive on a day to day basis.
The Challenger still features the exterior stylish lines from its 1970 predecessor, such as the fastback roof line and long looking hood. When you take a look under the hood, the Challenger is powered by a shortened version of the Dodge/Chrysler 300 engine (Certified Car Care). The Challenger offers great passenger space and luggage capacity due to its split folding seats and large dimensions.
