The Dodge Challenger features the exterior styling of its iconic '70s predecessor, such as a long hood and a semi-fastback roofline. As well, there is ample passenger space and impressive luggage capacity. It comes in four levels: SXT, R/T, SRT8-392 and SRT8 Core.
Challenging the Road With Powerful Muscular Drive
The Dodge Challenger made its mark in the car industry during the 1960's and 70's, the muscle car era. Now, after four decades, the Challenger once again lives up to its reputation, with many similar features of the original model, such as powerful engines driving the rear wheels. However, unlike the bare-knuckled brawler of old, the challenger now comes with more refined equipment and plenty of safety features. Today, every Dodge Challenger comes standard with antilock brakes and a full complement of airbags and stability control. Now, optional packages are available for further streamlining your Challenger, such as a sunroof, and a hard-drive-based navigation system with music and video file storage capability.
Trims to Suit Every Driver
There are also optional performance packages like the Super Track Pak for improving handling and braking. The SRT8 392 comes with most of the Challenger's available equipment, while the SRT8 Core has the same performance items but is equipped more like a base SXT. The standard Sport Mode improves overall performance by reducing shift times and increasing engine and throttle response. Available paddle shifters are crafted of die-cast metal for excellent strength and feel. Added to the 2017 Dodge Challenger lineup, are standard 20-inch alloy wheels, Satin Black exterior graphics, Brembo brakes, sport seats, a modified directed cold-air hood system, a cold-air induction system, as well as “Air Catcher” headlights inspired by the Challenger SRT Hellcat.
3,300 Dodge Challenger Demons are being produced for the U.S. and Canada this year at the Brampton, Ontario assembly plant for 2018. The Demon trim comes with a 6.2-litre Hemi V8 engine that produces a force which makes it a complete beast. This new Demon is considered the world's fastest vehicle going 0-60 in 2.3 seconds and 100 mph or 160 kph in 5.1 seconds. The Demon is an innovative vehicle that beautifully blends the old-school hotrod favourites and latest cutting-edge technology, making this a must-have for sports car enthusiasts.
Powerful Car with Advanced Safety Features
The NHTSA gave the Dodge Challenger a five-star overall safety rating for the 2017 model. In IIHS evaluations, the Challenger received an 'Acceptable' score in the roof strength and head restraints and seat categories, 'Good' in the side impact and moderate front overlap tests, and 'Marginal' in the small front overlap evaluation (Good is the highest possible score). The car also received a Basic score in the IIHS' front crash prevention test. Although it doesn't have automatic emergency braking, it offers a forward collision warning system, a part of the Technology group.
