2019 Dodge Challenger SXT V6 Full Review \u0026 Specs - Generation Oldschool

Dodge Challenger

Not to be confused with Mitsubishi Challenger.

Motor vehicle

The Dodge Challenger is the name of three different generations of automobiles (two of those being pony cars) produced by American automobile manufacturer Dodge. However, the first use of the Challenger name by Dodge was in for marketing a "value version" of the full-sizedCoronet Silver Challenger.

From model years to , the first generation Dodge Challenger pony car was built using the Chrysler E platform in hardtop and convertible body styles sharing major components with the Plymouth Barracuda.[1]

The second generation, from model years to , was a badge engineeredMitsubishi Galant Lambda, a coupe version of an economical compact car.

The third and current generation is a pony car that was introduced in early originally as a rival to the evolved fifth generation Ford Mustang and the fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro.[2]

First generation (–)[edit]

Motor vehicle

Introduced in fall for the model year,[4] the Challenger was one of two Chrysler E-body cars, the other being the slightly smaller Plymouth Barracuda. Positioned to compete against the Mercury Cougar and Pontiac Firebird in the upper end of the pony car market segment,[5] it was "a rather late response" to the Ford Mustang, which debuted in April [6] Even so, Chrysler intended the new Challenger as the most potent pony car ever,[7] and like the less expensive Barracuda, it was available in a staggering number of trim and option levels, and with virtually every engine in Chrysler's inventory.[8]

The first usage of the "challenger" name was for a trim package in called the Dodge Silver Challenger which was a two-door coupe only.

The Challenger's longer wheelbase, larger dimensions, and more luxurious interior were prompted by the launch of the Mercury Cougar, likewise, a bigger, more luxurious, and more expensive pony car aimed at affluent young American buyers.[9] The &#;in (2,&#;mm) wheelbase was 2&#;in (51&#;mm) longer than the Barracuda's, and the Dodge differed substantially in its sheetmetal, much as the Cougar differed from the shorter-wheelbase Mustang. Air conditioning and a rear window defogger were optional.[10] With being the sole exception, the front ends of both cars differed from each other in that the Challenger had four headlights and the Barracuda had only two; a trend replicated by offerings from Chrysler's rivals.

The exterior design was penned by Carl Cameron, who was also responsible for the exterior designs of the Dodge Charger. Cameron based the Challenger grille on an older sketch of a stillborn Charger prototype that was to have a turbine engine. The pony car segment was already declining by the time the Challenger arrived. Sales fell dramatically after , and though sales rose for the model year with over 27, cars being sold, Challenger production ceased midway through the model year. A total of , first-generation Challengers were sold.

Model years[edit]

Dodge Challenger Convertible

The only Special Edition hardtop featured a smaller "formal" rear window

[edit]

For its introductory model year the Challenger was available in two series, Challenger and Challenger R/T, and three models, two-door hardtop, Special Edition two-door hardtop, or convertible.[11][better&#;source&#;needed] The base model was the Challenger with either an inline-6 or V8 engine. The Special Edition hardtop, available on either the base Challenger or on the R/T, added a number of appearance, convenience, and comfort features.[12] Produced for the model year only, this more luxurious SE specification included as standard a vinyl roof with a "SE" medallions on the pillars, a smaller "formal" rear window, leather and vinyl bucket seats, and an overhead interior console that contained three warning lights (door ajar, low fuel, and seatbelts).[13] The standard engine on the base model was a &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) Straight The standard engine on the higher trim models was a &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) V8 with a 2-barrel carburetor. For , the optional engines included the and &#;cu&#;in ( and &#;L), as well as the and &#;cu&#;in ( and &#;L) V8s, all with a standard 3-speed manual transmission, except for the &#;hp (&#;kW) cu in. engine, which was available only with the TorqueFliteautomatic transmission. A 4-speed manual was optional on all engines except the &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) Inline-6 and the 2-barrel &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) V8.

The performance model was the Challenger R/T (Road/Track), with a &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) "Magnum" V8, rated at &#;hp (&#;kW); &#;hp (&#;kW) for , due to a drop in compression. The standard transmission was a 3-speed manual. Optional R/T engines were the &#;hp (&#;kW) &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) Magnum, the &#;hp (&#;kW) &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) Six-Pack and the &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) Hemi rated at &#;hp (&#;PS; &#;kW) at 5, rpm and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque at 4, rpm. The R/T was available in either the hardtop or convertible. The Challenger R/T came with a Rallye instrument cluster that included a &#;mph (&#;km/h) speedometer, an 8, rpm tachometer and an oil pressure gauge.[14] The shaker hood scoop was not available after

A mid-year introduction was the low-priced Challenger Deputy, a coupe with fixed rear quarter windows and stripped of some of the base car's trim and with fixed rear side glass. The "Western Sport Special" was a version available only to west coast dealers. It came with a rear-exit exhaust system and Western Sport Special identification on the rear decklid. Some examples came with a vacuum-operated trunk release.[citation needed]

The Dodge Challenger T/A[edit]

Dodge Challenger T/A

A special model only available for the model year was the Challenger T/A (Trans Am) racing homologation car. In order to race in the Sports Car Club of America's Trans American Sedan Championship Trans Am, Dodge built a street version of its race car (just like Plymouth with its Plymouth 'Cuda AAR) which it called the Dodge Challenger T/A (Trans Am). Although the race cars ran a destroked version of the , street versions took the and added a trio of two-barrel carburetors atop an aluminum intake manifold, creating the Six Pack. Dodge rated the Six Pack at &#;hp (&#;kW), only 15&#;hp (11&#;kW) more than the original engine (which also had the same rating as the Camaro Z/28 and Ford Boss Mustang). Air came in through a suitcase-sized air scoop molded into the pinned down, hinged matte-black fiberglass hood. A low-restriction dual-outlet exhaust ran to the stock muffler location, then reversed direction to exit in chrome tipped "megaphone" outlets in front of the rear wheels. Options included a TorqueFlite automatic or pistol-grip Hurst-shifted four-speed transmission, or gear ratios, as well as manual or power steering. Front disc brakes were standard. The special Rallye suspension used heavy-duty parts and increased the rate of the rear springs. The T/A was one of the first U.S. muscle cars to fit different size tires at the front and rear: E60x15 Goodyear Polyglas in the front, and G60x15 on the rear axle.[15][16] The modified chamber elevated the tail enough to clear the rear tires and its side exhaust outlets. Thick dual side stripes, bold ID graphics, a fiberglass ducktail rear spoiler, and a fiberglass front spoiler were also included. The interior was identical to other Challengers.

Dodge contracted Ray Caldwell's Autodynamics in Marblehead, Massachusetts to run the factory Trans-Am team. Sam Posey drove the No "sub-lime" painted car that Caldwell's team built from a car taken off a local dealer's showroom floor. When the No was completed mid-season from a chassis provided by Dan Gurney's All American Racers, Posey alternated between the two. Both cars ran the final two races, with Posey in the # Ronnie Bucknum drove the No at Seattle Washington, and Tony Adamowicz drove it at Riverside, California.

The Challenger T/A's scored a few top-three finishes, but lack of a development budget and the short-lived Keith Black built &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) engines led to Dodge leaving the series at season's end. The street version suffered from severe understeer in fast corners, largely due to the smaller front tires. Only 2, T/As were made. A model using the engine with a 4-barrel carburetor was planned and appeared in advertising, but was not produced since Dodge had withdrawn from the race series.

Dodge Challenger R/T

Dodge Challenger R/T taillights next to the version

[edit]

For the model year the Challenger Coupe became the entry-level model, with either a straight-six or V8 engine. Like the Challenger Deputy it replaced, it had fixed rear quarter windows and a basic black steering wheel with horn button.[17]

[edit]

For the model year, the options lists (both for performance and appearance/convenience items) had been drastically cut back. The convertible version (though a sun-roof was made available), most interior upgrade options (in particular leather seats), comfort/convenience items (in particular power windows and power seats), and all the big-block engine options were gone. The R/T series was replaced by the Challenger Rallye series. The Rallye model featured four simulated vents on the front fenders, from which exited matte black strobe tape stripes. Engine choices were down to three: the &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) slant-6, &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) V8, and a &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) V8 that was equipped with a 4-barrel carburetor, dual exhausts, as well as a performance-oriented camshaft and heads. All three engines were detuned to lower compression ratios in order to run on lead-free gasoline, and the horsepower ratings were lowered to reflect the more accurate Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) net horsepower calculations. Each engine could be mated to a 3-speed manual or automatic transmission, while the could also be equipped with a 4-speed manual if so ordered. The performance axle ratios were also gone except for a sure grip which could only be had with the and the heavy-duty suspension.[18] The models also received a new grille that extended beneath the front bumper, as well as new rear tail-lights. Toward the end of the model year, a few convertibles were made with the front end (grille, lights, etc.) and rear end (tail lights and their panel). The only way to ascertain these Challenger convertibles is to look at its fender tag. On the code line which gives the dealer order number, that number will start with an "R", which designates "Special Meaning" (in this case, a TV 'special promotions' car).

–[edit]

Dodge Challenger Rallye

The grille and tail-light arrangement were carried over for the (and ) model years, and the mandatory 5&#;mph bumpers were added. While the &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) six-cylinder engine was dropped, (leaving just the two V8s), all option lists otherwise were carry-overs from

For , the &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) engine was replaced by a &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) version offering &#;hp (&#;kW), but the pony car market had fallen off and production of Challengers ceased in late April

Cosmetic variations[edit]

Protruding bumper guards,

Although the body style remained the same throughout the Challenger's five-year run, there were two notable changes to the front grille. The models had a "split" grille, while introduced a design that extended the grille (nicknamed the "sad-mouth") beneath the front bumper. With this change to the front end, through models had little to no variation. The only way to properly distinguish them is that the s had flush-mounted bumpers with no bumper guards, (small bumper guards were optional), while both the and models had the protruding "5&#;mph (&#;km/h)" bumpers (with a rubber-type filler behind them) in conjunction with large bumper guards. The cars had larger rear bumper guards to meet the (new for and on) rear 5&#;mph (&#;km/h) rear impact law. These changes were made to meet U.S. regulations regarding crash test safety.

The taillights went all the way across the back of the car, with the backup light in the middle. In , the backup lights were on the left and right instead of the middle. The taillight array also changed for onwards, with the Challenger now having four individual rectangular lamps.

Collectibility[edit]

Although few mourned the end of the E-body models, the passage of time has created legends and highlighted the unique personalities of both the Challenger and the Barracuda.[8] With a low total production, as well as low survivability over the years, any Challenger is worth a substantial amount of money. In a historic review, the editors of Edmunds Inside Line ranked these models as: was a "great" year, was a "good" one, and then "three progressively lousier ones" (–).[8]

Export markets[edit]

Dodge Challengers were mainly produced for the U.S. and Canadian markets. Chrysler officially sold Challengers to Switzerland through AMAG Automobil- und Motoren AG in Schinznach-Bad, near Zurich. Only a few cars were shipped overseas each year to AMAG. They did the final assembly of the Challengers and converted them to Swiss specifications. There are few AMAG cars still in existence. From a collector's point of view, these cars are very desirable. Today, fewer than five Swiss Challengers are known to exist in North America.[19]

Chrysler exported Dodge Challengers officially to France as well through their Chrysler France Simca operation, since Ford sold the Mustang in France successfully in small numbers. However, only a few Challengers were exported and Chrysler finally gave up the idea of selling them in France.

Engines[edit]

The SAE gross horsepower ratings were determined testing the engine with no accessories, no air cleaner, or open dyno headers. In compression ratios were reduced in performance engines, except the &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) and the high performance &#;cu&#;in (&#;L), to accommodate regular gasoline. was the last year for the &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) Hemi.

Second generation (–)[edit]

Motor vehicle

Rear view ( Challenger)

Beginning with the model year, Dodge marketed a rebadged variant of the early Mitsubishi Galant Lambda coupe, as the Dodge Challenger &#; through Dodge dealers as a captive import, originally as the "Dodge Colt Challenger".[20] Chrysler's Plymouth brand marketed its own rebadged variant as the Plymouth Sapporo, and a rebadged variant was marketed overseas as the Mitsubishi Sapporo/Scorpion and sold. Both the Sapporo and Challenger were redesigned in with revised bodywork and increased foot room, head room, trunk capacity and sound-proofing.[21] Both cars were marketed until , when they were replaced by the Conquest using the same rear-wheel-drive platform through , and in by the front-wheel-drive Laser and Daytona.

The car retained the frameless hardtop styling of the old Challenger, but had smaller engines, a &#;L inline-four and a &#;L inline-four instead of the slant-6 and V8 engines of the original Challenger models. The engines were rated at power outputs of 77–&#;hp (57–78&#;kW).[20]Mitsubishi pioneered the use of balance shafts to help damp engine vibrations.

Dodge Challenger Concept

In late , Dodge teased spy photos of the Dodge Challenger prototype on the internet and it was announced on November 21, , showing an official drawing sketch of the vehicle.[28] The Dodge Challenger Concept was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show and was a preview for the 3rd generation Dodge Challenger that started its production in Many design cues of the Dodge Challenger Concept were adapted from the Dodge Challenger R/T.

Initial release[edit]

On December 3, , Chrysler started taking deposits for the 3rd-generation Dodge Challenger which debuted on February 6, , simultaneously at the Chicago Auto Show[29] and Philadelphia International Auto Show. Listing at US$40,, the new version was a 2-door notchbackcoupe (seating 5 passengers with over 33 cubic feet of rear passenger volume) which shared common design elements with the first generation Challenger, despite being significantly longer and taller. As with Chevrolet's new Camaro, the Challenger concept car's pillarlesshardtop body was replaced with a fixed "B" pillar, hidden behind the side glass to give an illusion of the hardtop. A convertible version was planned, but cancelled over concerns with weight and a low market demand for convertibles.[30] The LC chassis is a modified (shortened wheelbase) version of the LX platform that underpins the Dodge Charger (LX), Dodge Magnum, and the Chrysler The LX was developed in America from the previous Chrysler LH platform, which had been designed to allow it to be easily upgraded to rear and all-wheel drive. Many Mercedes components were incorporated, or used for inspiration,[31][32] including the Mercedes-Benz W S-class control arm front suspension, the Mercedes-Benz W E-Class 5-link rear suspension, the W5A 5-speed automatic, the rear differential, and the ESP system. All () models were SRT8s and equipped with the &#;L (&#;cu&#;in) Hemi V8 engine and a 5-speed AutoStick automatic transmission. The entire Canadian produced run of 6, US market cars were pre-sold and production commenced on May 8,

Chrysler of Mexico offered only SRT8s, with a liter V8 engine rated at horsepower (&#;kW) (SAE). Chrysler auctioned off two SRT8s for charity with the first car going for US$, and a "B5" Blue No car with a winning bid of US$,[33]

The base model Challenger SE was initially powered by a &#;L (&#;cu&#;in) SOHC V6 engine rated at &#;hp (&#;kW) (SAE) and &#;lbf⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque which was coupled to a 4-speed automatic transmission for the first half of , and was then changed to have a standard 5-speed automatic transmission.[34] Several different exterior colors, with either cloth or leather interiors became available. Standard features included air conditioning, power windows, locks, and mirrors; cruise control, and inch (&#;mm) aluminum wheels. Leather upholstery, heated front seats, sunroof, inch aluminum wheels, and a premium audio system are available as options, as are ABS, and stability and traction control.[35] The Canadian market also sports the SXT trim, similar to the SE, but more generous in terms of standard features. Some of these features being ESP, an alarm system, and inch (&#;mm) wheels. Starting with the model year, the SE was replaced in the U.S. with the SXT model.

Previous to the model year, the SXT version of the Challenger was only sold in Canada and is a more well-equipped variation of the SE. It adds fog lamps, a rear spoiler, larger wheels, illuminated vanity mirrors, a security alarm, and a leather-wrapped shifter. In addition, the SXT has increased option packages available to it that aren't available on the SE, and are also available to the R/T. (Such as the high-end navigation-enabled entertainment system.)

Challenger [edit]

Chrysler Canada offered a further SRTs uniquely badged as the Challenger (paying homage to Charger and Coronet s) all of which were shipped to Canadian Dodge dealers.[citation needed]

model year[edit]

Dodge Challenger R/T

Dodge Challenger R/T Classic in Detonator Yellow

Dodge Challenger SRT-8

Production of the limited edition SRT8s ended in July , and production of the expanded line-up started in early August of the same year. The expanded offering was the same as had been unveiled earlier that spring at the New York Auto Show. Chrysler debuted the full Dodge Challenger line-up for , with four different trims – SE, R/T, SRT8, and the SXT in Canada only. In addition to the SRT8, which remained unchanged except for the optional 6-speed manual and standard limited-slip differential, the line-up included the previously mentioned SE and SXT which offered the &#;hp (&#;kW) liter V6. The R/T had a liter Hemi sporting &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque when coupled with the 5 speed automatic, and &#;hp (&#;kW) with &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) when matched with the same Tremec 6-speed manual transmission as the SRT8.

New for was the Rallye Package for the SE model. The package featured design cues including dual body stripes on the hood and the trunk, chromed fuel cap, decklid spoiler, inch aluminum wheels, and Micro Carbon interior accents.

The mid-level Challenger R/T is powered by a &#;L (&#;cu&#;in) Hemi V8 coupled to a 5-speed automatic transmission or a Tremec TR 6-speed manual transmission. On cars equipped with the automatic transmission, the engine features the Multi-Displacement System and is rated at &#;hp (&#;kW) (SAE) and &#;lbf⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) torque.[34] With the 6-speed manual transmission, the Multi-Displacement System option was deleted and the engine is rated at &#;hp (&#;kW) (SAE) and &#;lbf⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) torque.[34] Another feature was the Intelligent Deceleration Fuel Shut-Off (iDFSO) available for the automatic models only. The first to combine both a Multi-Displacement system and fuel shut-off.[36] The final drive ratio was on cars with the automatic transmission, on cars with the 6-speed manual and inch (&#;mm) wheels or with the 6-speed manual and optional inch (&#;mm) wheels. Also available on R/T was the "Track Pak" option group, which includes the Tremec manual transmission, a limited slip differential and self-leveling rear shock absorbers.

The Challenger R/T Classic has retro aspects such as script "Challenger" badges on the front panels and black or white "R/T" stripes. It comes with a five-speed automatic standard, with an optional six-speed manual transmission including a pistol-grip-shifter. The wheels are Heritage 20" Torq-Thrust style specials. It became available in Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl, Bright Silver Metallic, Stone White and in multiple "heritage" colors: Toxic Orange, HEMI-Orange, TorRed, B5 Blue, Plum Crazy Purple, Detonator Yellow, and Furious Fuchsia. Production started in February

The SRT8, while still equipped with the L ( cu in) Hemi V8, is virtually identical to its counterpart, with the main difference being the choice of either a 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission. Standard features include Brembo brakes, a sport suspension, bi-xenon headlamps, heated leather sport seats, keyless go, Sirius satellite radio, and inch (&#;mm) forged aluminum wheels in addition to most amenities offered on the R/T and SE models such as air conditioning and cruise control.[35] In addition, the had a "limited slip" differential that was not offered on the model.[37] A "Spring Special" SRT8 Challenger was also offered in B5 Blue, but due to rolling plant shutdowns, just over Spring Special Challengers were built before the end of the model year.

The Mopar '10 Challenger R/T is a limited version of the Challenger R/T with metallic pearl black body color, three accent colors (blue, red, silver) of stripes to choose from. In addition, these cars were available with black R/T Classic-style wheels along with a Hurst aftermarket pistol grip shifter, custom badging, Mopar cold air intake for a ten-horsepower increase, and a Katzkin-sourced aftermarket interior. The cars were built in Brampton Assembly and completed at the Mopar Upfit Center in Windsor, Ontario. There were U.S. Units and Canadian units built. Of the Mopar special edition U.S. versions, had automatic transmissions, had manuals, while had blue stripes, had red stripes, and had silver stripes. A limited numbered run of SRTs in were produced with "Furious Fuchsia" paint and white leather seats with horizontal fuchsia-colored slash bars on the backrests. Special badging on the passenger side dash script denotes the production number of each individual car ranging from the numbers 1 to Dodge marketed this package as an homage to the original Panther Pink cars 40 years previous. These cars came with both automatic and Tremec six-speed transmissions.

The Drag Race Package is a race model designed for NHRA competition, based on the Dodge Challenger SRT The car is 1,&#;lb (&#;kg) lighter than the street vehicle by eliminating major production components and systems. To accentuate the weight savings, they also feature added composite, polycarbonate, and lightweight components designed for drag racing that is part of the new Package Car program. The engine was repositioned to improve the driveline angle and weight distribution. The inch (2,&#;mm) wheelbase was shortened by ½ inch. The car also features a front cradle with bolt-in crossmember and solid engine mounts.

At least 50 Challenger Drag Race Package Cars were built to meet NHRA requirements. Engine options include a &#;L Hemi, &#; Hemi, and a &#;L Magnum Wedge. Manual or automatic transmissions are available, and the rear axle is solid (not IRS). An initial run of the required 50 cars was completed and over of the " Challenger Drag Pak" vehicles were produced. "Big Daddy" Don Garlits bought the first drag race package car and raced it in NHRA competition.[38] The prototype cars shown at SEMA were built by MPR Racing of Michigan, who continue to modify the production cars as delivered from Chrysler.

model year[edit]

In its second year of production, the Challenger received only a few minor feature and option changes. Electronic stability control is newly standard across the entire Challenger model line. R/T models gained the following standard features: automatic headlamps, an LED-lit cupholder, and door-handle lights. UConnect Multimedia and UConnect Navigation options now include steering-wheel audio controls while UConnect Multimedia features have been combined with the optional Sound Group.

The most significant new option for is the Super Track Pack, which brings a host of track-ready hardware and upgrades that includes:

  • 20x9 wheels with Goodyear F1 Super Car tires
  • Front and rear Sachs Nivomat self-leveling shock-absorbers
  • Larger rear stabilizer bar (20mm > 16mm stock)
  • Variable displacement performance steering pump (standard on 6 speed)
  • rear-axle ratio (n/a on 6-speed R/Ts which maintain ratio)
  • Anti-lock 4-Wheel disc heavy-duty brakes with performance brake linings
  • "ESP-off" stability calibration. A limited-slip differential remained standard only on R/Ts equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission.[39]

model year[edit]

Dodge Challenger SRT8

The liter Hemi V8 engine used in the SRT8

The Ram emblem disappeared with the model year (as the namesake truck was being spun off as its own brand), and Challengers received two new engines, the Pentastar, and a Hemi.

  • The SE and SE Rallye received the new liter Pentastar
  • In , the Challenger Rallye Package added dual red out-lined center stripes, premium leather interior with heated front seats, body-color rear spoiler, performance-tuned steering with sport suspension and handling package, further upgraded brakes, and unique Foose designed inch Rallye wheels.[40]
  • The R/T received revisions including a new bottom grille cutout and an updated suspension.
  • The new SRT8's chin spoiler was enlarged to create more downforce. It resembles the Challenger R/T. The SRT8 received a new liter Hemi V8.[41] The so-called (although its actual size is cu-in.) was officially rated at &#;hp (&#;kW; &#;PS) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque. Dodge engineers stated they sacrificed peak horsepower ratings for low-end torque, stating a 90&#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) increase over the outgoing L ( c.i.d.) Hemi V8 at 2, rpm.[42] Two transmissions were offered: a 5-Speed Shiftable Automatic and a 6-speed manual. With the revised liter engine, Chrysler engineers cited a quarter mile (~ m) time of seconds at &#;mph (&#;km/h) – bettering the outgoing &#;L Hemi by seconds, although that figure has varied wildly between automotive magazines. Car and Driver tested the at seconds at &#;mph (&#;km/h)[43] while Motor Trend tested it at seconds at &#;mph (&#;km/h)[44] and Edmunds' number was far closer to Chrysler's claimed numbers at seconds at &#;mph (&#;km/h).[45]
  • Top speeds of the Dodge Challenger R/T and Dodge Challenger SRT8 were both rated at &#;mph (&#;km/h). The R/T has a 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97&#;km/h) acceleration time of seconds, while the SRT8 accelerates to 60 mph (97&#;km/h) in seconds.

model year[edit]

The base SE trim was renamed to SXT for consistency with the naming scheme of the remaining Dodge lineup. The SRT8 model gains a two-mode adaptive suspension system that features an Auto and Sport mode. The car uses a variety of sensors to measure inputs like vehicle speed, steering angle, brake torque, throttle position, and acceleration forces to instantly tune the suspension for the given condition depending on what mode is chosen.[46] In addition, a new heated steering wheel featuring Chrysler's new paddle shifter system, new sport seats, and a watt Harman Kardon audio system became available.[47]

model year[edit]

Dodge Challenger R/T

For , a Rallye Redline package is available with Dodge Challenger V6 models. Based on the SXT Plus trim, the Rallye Redline package includes unique exterior accents, Black chrome inch wheels with Redline Red accents, performance suspension and brakes, a rear-axle ratio, and available Radar Red Nappa leather interior.

The Electronic Vehicle Tracking System (EVTS), a GPS-enabled stolen vehicle recovery system became available.

model year[edit]

The Challenger largely soldiered on with minimal changes for A new performance package called the "Super Sport Group" was made available for V6 challengers and included the performance-suspension, steering, and brakes from the R/T challengers, a axle ratio with mm rear axle for faster acceleration, rear spoiler, and inch chrome wheels with wider P/45R20 all-season performance tires. The "Sinister Super Sport pack" was a Super Sport Group but with black wheels instead of chrome. The Challenger SRT8 also gained a launch control system.[48]

model year (facelift)[edit]

Challenger SXT (note the grille's dual scoops inspired by the Challenger)

Challenger interior continues the Challenger theme (SRT depicted)

For the model year, changes include:[53]

  • The high-performance "SRT-8" trim was retired, replaced by SRT and SRT Hellcat.
  • 5-speed automatic transmission replaced by a new 8-speed ZF 8HP automatic transmission
  • Power output on the liter Apache V8 increased by 15&#;hp (11&#;kW; 15&#;PS) and 5&#;lb⋅ft (7&#;N⋅m) for a total of &#;hp (&#;kW; &#;PS) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m)
  • A slightly revamped exterior features a new grille with design cues from the Challenger, Quad LED 'Halo Ring" headlights, LED taillights, and a functional hood intakes on all models.
  • Inside, the Challenger gets a 7-inch (mm) TFT (Thin Film Transistor) display with over one hundred possible configurations, inch Uconnect touchscreen radio with available navigation, and a retro-styled gauge cluster.
  • Six-Piston front Brembo brakes with Two-Piece inch vented/slotted Rotors and 4-piston rear Brembo brakes on SRT and SRT Hellcat models.

SRT Hellcat[edit]

Challenger SRT Hellcat in custom Stryker Red (VIN# )

Dodge Challenger Hellcat on a dragstrip

The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is a high performance variant of the Challenger equipped with a supercharged liter Hemi engine rated at &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque. This engine is also available in the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat full-sized sedan, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk SUV, and as the Hellcrate engine swap kit. The inner driving light on the left front has been removed to allow air to get into the engine resulting in more torque, and the wheel wells are different from the standard SRT to accommodate the inch aluminum wheels. The SRT Hellcat is equipped with two separate key fobs; use of the "black" fob limits engine output to &#;hp (&#;kW), while the "red" fob enables full output capability.[54] The Hellcat has a quarter-mile time of seconds; this was accomplished with street legal drag tires. On stock tires the Hellcat was able to achieve seconds at &#;mph (&#;km/h) on the quarter-mile.[55]

The Challenger SRT Hellcat can accelerate from 0–60&#;mph (97&#;km/h) in seconds and can brake from 60–0 in &#;ft (33&#;m). Top speed is &#;mph (&#;km/h). The Challenger Hellcat has a lateral acceleration of g.[56]

The European-spec Hellcat is capable of accelerating from 0–62&#;mph (0–&#;km/h) in seconds, 0–&#;mph (0–&#;km/h) in seconds,[57] and 0–&#;mph (0–&#;km/h) in 38 seconds (although the speedometer appeared to be inaccurate by 10–15&#;km/h (6–9&#;mph)).[58]

The Challenger Hellcat was able to complete its Gingerman Raceway lap in ,[59] the Hockenheim Short in [60] and the Motown Mile in [61]

model year[edit]

Hellcat (Texas Dealer special edition)

In , there were no major changes introduced. Some Texas Dodge Dealers sold a limited edition version of the Hellcat, which were lowered about &#;cm in the back, 3&#;cm in the front, came with an upgraded supercharger which was dynamometer tested at between and &#;hp ( and &#;kW) (readouts were packaged with the autos), featured /35r20 rear tires, and all vehicles were backed by a standard factory warranty. Most were white with black Carbon-fiber 'rally stripes', but a small number were red, with black carbon-fiber stripes. The upgraded models were 'sticker priced' at about $80, The program was terminated by Dodge, who announced the Challenger Hellcat with upgraded performance, and began work on The Demon model (which was not available for sale until the model year).

model year[edit]

Challenger GT in Graphite Crystal. Note the higher stance of the Pursuit-based suspension.

For the model year, a GT model was introduced with an all-wheel drive (AWD) version of the SXT Plus.[62] The Challenger GT uses the same AWD system and suspension as the Dodge Charger Pursuit. It is available exclusively with the Liter V6 Pentastar engine and the 8-speed automatic transmission.

The AWD system includes both an active transfer case and front-axle disconnect system. The system defaults to rear-wheel drive (RWD) but can seamlessly transition between RWD and AWD if certain conditions are met, like low external temperature, rainfall, or loss of traction. No driver input is required.[63] In Sport Mode, the car uses AWD exclusively. The AWD system in the Challenger GT is configured to be rear-biased (applies more power to the rear wheels). Only up to 38% of power is transferred to the front wheels.

Other model additions include the liter V8 equipped T/A and liter V8 equipped T/A models. T/A models include a black painted hood with center air intake, black roof, black decklid, bodyside graphics, a cold-air induction system through the front headlamps similar to that used in the Challenger SRT Hellcat, Houndstooth cloth performance seats, and white-faced gauges. T/A models include everything on T/A models in addition to the more powerful L V8, six-piston front Brembo brakes with two-piece inch vented/slotted rotors and 4-piston rear Brembo brakes, and 20xinch wheels with /40ZR20 tires. Every Challenger gains an updated Uconnect infotainment system; the optional inch touchscreen with navigation adds multitouch gestures.

Models equipped with the liter V8 now have an electronically controlled low-restriction active exhaust for a more aggressive exhaust note. Among the other additions are standard Houndstooth cloth seats on some models and revised paint choices. Green Go, Yellow Jacket, Destroyer Grey, and Octane Red are new colors, while White Knuckle and Contusion Blue are renamed carryovers.[64]

model year[edit]

Minor changes were made for the model year. For SXT and R/T models equipped with the liter V6 and liter V8, a new Performance Handling Group package is available. This package adds 4-piston black Brembo brakes (a $ option for red brake calipers is optional) in the front along with a Bilstein performance suspension, 20x9 inch wheels with /45ZR20 performance tires, and upgraded steering. The Challenger GT gains a new inch wheel option while SXT Plus and R/T Plus trims equipped with the Super Track package come with Nappa leather and microsuede sport seats. The SXT, R/T, R/T Shaker, and T/A models receive a standard inch Uconnect touchscreen. A backup camera is now standard. For exterior colors, new additions include F8 Green, IndiGO Blue, B5 Blue and Plum Crazy.[64]

SRT Demon[edit]

The Demon is a limited production wide-body and extreme (drag race level) performance variant of the already high-performance Challenger SRT Hellcat. It debuted during the New York Auto Show in April [65]

The Demon uses an all-new liter V8 engine equipped with a liter supercharger, which is rated at &#;hp (&#;kW; &#;PS) with 91 octane gasoline and &#;hp (&#;kW; &#;PS) with octane fuel or higher (both outputs are with the red key fob supplied with the car). Torque stands at &#;lb⋅ft (1,&#;N⋅m) on octane fuel. The car weighs &#;lb (98&#;kg) less than the Hellcat, the total being 4,&#;lb (1,&#;kg). The SRT Demon uses a set of road tires by Nitto Tire, called the NT05R. The tires are the /40R18 variations at both front and rear. The tires are targeted for the drag strip, but have enough tread pattern to make them legal for the road. This tire, although an NT05R consumer tire, is a variation built specifically to withstand the power output of the Demon. This makes the Challenger SRT Demon the first production car to contain a set of drag radial road tires.[66] The SRT Demon contains a system that is used specifically for drag racing called transbrake. Dodge uses a unique transbrake that puts the transmission in 1st gear and 2nd gear [67] simultaneously, holding the Demon stationary.[68] This is used along with the car's torque converter to build up hydraulic pressure before launch.

The power-to-weight ratio of the SRT Demon is &#;hp (&#;kW; &#;PS) per ton on 91 octane gasoline and &#;hp (&#;kW; &#;PS) per ton on octane or higher.

The SRT Demon accelerates from 0–30&#;mph (0–48&#;km/h) in second, 0–60&#;mph (0–97&#;km/h) in seconds (s with a rollout), 0–&#;mph (0–&#;km/h) in seconds, a top speed of &#;mph (&#;km/h) (factory limited), and the quarter mile ( m) in only seconds at &#;mph (&#;km/h).[69] This makes the Demon the fastest non-electric production car to reach &#;mph (0–97&#;km/h) and to complete a straight-line quarter mile at its time of announcement. The SRT Demon is also capable of accelerating at G's of force at launch, making this the hardest launching production car.[70] The boost pressure of the supercharger can be increased to psi and redline up to 6, rpm. With this extreme power, and hard acceleration, the SRT Demon is the first production car to perform a wheelie.[71] With the control module from the "Demon Crate" and high-speed tires, the Demon has attained a top speed of over &#;mph (&#;km/h) in test runs.[72]

Because of the lack of an NHRA certified roll cage, which is required if the quarter-mile time is under 10 seconds, the NHRA banned the SRT Demon from competition.[73]

Like the SRT Hellcat, it comes with both red and black key fobs, with the black fob limiting the power output to &#;hp (&#;kW). With the red key and the use of + octane gasoline, the Demon can utilize its full power potential. Only 3, cars were made, with production beginning in the summer of and market introduction happening in the fall of [74][75]

The interior of the SRT Demon is the same as all other Challenger trims, but with changes that differentiate it to the other trims. The Demon only includes a front driver's seat as standard, and no other seats front or rear in the vehicle. However, the front passenger's seat, as well as a rear bench seat, can both be added back as options for one dollar each. To replace the rear seats, Dodge included rear roll bars, and has a 4-point harness installed on it for the driver seat.[76] The dashboard display and the seats now have the Demon logo on them,[77][78] and includes a performance display on it, as well as on the center console touch screen.[79]

Dodge engineers reduced the curb weight of the Challenger SRT Demon to 1,&#;kg (4,&#;lb) versus the 2,&#;kg (4,&#;lb) curb weight of the SRT Hellcat, a difference of &#;kg (&#;lb).[80][81] This was achieved by removing the front passenger seat (it could be added back), rear seat, speakers, trunk trim, parking sensors, and insulators, among other items. The SRT Demon also uses lightweight aluminum alloy wheels, pistons, calipers, and brake rotors.

Discontinuation[edit]

The last SRT Demon rolled off the assembly line in Brampton, Ontario, Canada on May 31, It was sold at a Barrett-Jackson auction in June alongside the final Dodge Viper.

model year[edit]

For the model year, Dodge released new high-performance versions of the Challenger, trimmed the line-up down to six models, and made numerous other tweaks and changes. The model line-up for includes the following trims: SXT, GT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat, and SRT Hellcat Redeye. Both SXT and GT models are now available in both rear and all-wheel drive, with the GT previously having been the only model available in AWD. GTs gain a more aggressive look with a performance hood, front splitter, steering and suspension while maintaining the optional performance handling group which includes wider wheels, performance summer tires, 4-piston Brembo brakes, and fixed-rate Bilstein suspension. The SXT model loses the performance handling group as an option, lacks the more aggressive exterior upgrades of the GT and has less aggressive gearing, making it the cheaper economical alternative. R/T Scat Pack models come with a new power-bulge aluminum hood standard. Shared with the SRT Hellcat, this hood features dual air extractors that cool the engine and help reduce lift. For L and L V8 R/T models, the rear seats can be deleted at the cost of $1 and have a net weight savings of 55 lbs. In addition, a second level of the performance handling group called the "performance plus package" is offered, providing Inch x inch low-gloss black forged wheels, /40ZR20 Pirelli P Zero summer tires, and a limited-slip differential in addition to the upgrades found in the performance handling group which remains unchanged since its introduction in [83]

SRT Hellcat: A slight increase in power is present for , with horsepower rising to and torque to lb-ft. A new dual-snorkel hood is introduced. Additionally, the model's starting price is more than $5, lower compared to the model. A 6-speed Tremec manual and ZF 8-speed automatic remain the sole transmission options.

Challenger Hellcat Redeye at the Cleveland Auto Show

SRT Hellcat Redeye: Following the discontinuation of the Demon, the Redeye was developed to fill the void.

model year[edit]

Challenger R/T 50th Anniversary Edition at the Canadian International Autoshow

For the model year, Dodge introduced a SRT Super Stock model slotting in between the Hellcat Redeye and the Demon. The engine is the same as the Redeye, but is slightly more powerful at &#;hp (&#;kW; &#;PS). This is enabled by a revision of the powertrain calibration, which increases the redline from to rpm. Additionally, the Super Stock gains lightweight inch wheels with the same drag radials as the Demon, along with a shorter final-drive ratio and drag-optimized suspension tuning for the Bilstein adaptive dampers in Track Mode. However, it uses four-piston Brembo and inch rotors instead of the Redeye's six-piston Brembo and inch rotors.[86] A 50th Anniversary Package was also announced for GT RWD, R/T Shaker, R/T Scat Pack, and R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody models, as well as the SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye. The package includes a Shaker hood scoop and gunmetal brake calipers on select models, wheels in Gold Rush paint, and a special grille badge, with Nappa leather and Alcantara upholstery featuring sepia stitching, a serialized number plaque, and carbon-fiber trim inside. Each model was limited to 70 units; colors include Frostbite, Hellraisin, Sinamon Stick, TorRed, F8 Green, Go Mango, and an exclusive Gold Rush.[87]

For the model year, Dodge added Gold Rush on the T/A, T/A , SRT Hellcat, and SRT Hellcat Redeye models. R/T Scat Pack Shaker and T/A models gain a wide-body option, while inch wheels and tires are now standard on the GT AWD model.[88]

Racing[edit]

Early version of the Nationwide Series Challenger R/T
Trans Am TA class Challenger at Sebring

The Challenger was introduced to the SCCA Trans Am Series in Two factory-backed cars were prepared by Ray Caldwell's Autodynamics and driven by Sam Posey and Tony Adamowicz. The No car was built at Autodynamics from a street Challenger T/A that was taken from a local dealer showroom. The No chassis arrived mid-season from Dan Gurney's All-American Racers and was completed by Autodynamics.

  • Dodge's early to mids factory-supported "Kit Car" program for short-track late-model stock car racing offered a choice of Challenger, and a few (less than 12) were made, but in Dodge ended the Challenger line and they went to the Dodge Dart Sports and Dodge Aspen bodies over a steel-tube chassis.[]
  • Blackforest Motorsports has currently entered a Challenger in the Continental Challenge.[]
  • The Challenger R/T has been used as the Chrysler model for starting in NASCAR Nationwide Series competition.[]

With Dodge officially out of NASCAR at the end of the season, the remaining cars and racing parts have been bought up by "privateer" racing teams and continue to show up in Nationwide Series during the and seasons. J. J. Yeley indicated his two-car team would continue to field a Challenger in the series for as long as he can find parts to keep the cars running. The team stopped after the season after his No. 93 (later No. 28) regularly ran in the top during races, though the Mike Harmon-owned No. 74 and the Derek White-operated No. 40 qualified and ran Dodges in Mike Harmon Racing ran a Dodge the entire season and also did so in , and has raced in over half of the season so far. Likewise, White's MBM Motorsports team fielded the Nos. 13 and 40 as Dodges in some races.[] MBM continues to field Dodges into with Timmy Hill in the 66 (was the 13).

In late two Challengers fielded by Miller Racing with the support of SRT and Mopar driven by Cameron Lawrence and Joe Stevens started racing in the Trans-Am Series's TA2 class. Both cars used a spec Howe road racing tube chassis with fiberglass bodies. Powered by a Hemi slightly modified for road racing extremes and restricted by class rules, the cars made around horsepower. Except for slightly bulged fenders and large rear wing, the cars look very much like the stock/street version, despite being roughly 7/8s the size of the road car. Lawrence won four of 12 races in the season, finishing third overall in the Trans Am TA2 championship. Joe Stevens in the No. 11 "Green Car" finished sixth overall after a fourth place at the season finale at Daytona International Speedway. Joe Stevens also received the Cool Shirt Hard Charger award for his excellent rookie season performance. For the season, the Stevens-Miller Team fielded three Challengers in the TA2 series and ran in 16 events, scoring a few wins. The No. 77 car was painted in a throw-back paint scheme very similar to the No. 77 car driven by Sam Posey. The No. 12 car occasionally fielded a blue scheme paying tribute to the Plymouth Cuda Trans-Am car driven by Swede Savage.

In March the Challenger returned to the TA class in Trans-Am at Sebring after a nearly year absence from Trans-Am's fastest class of racing. It was driven by Jeff Hinkle under the American V8 Road Racing team with John Debenedictis as crew chief. The car was orange and purple with stripes of many of the other challenger colors to celebrate the current stable of streetcars. It is powered by a Penske Engines Mopar R5 / P7 carburated motor producing &#;hp (&#;kW). In its debut, it qualified 16th and finished 9th out of a field of

At all Superbike World Championship races held in the United States, Fiat's Alfa Romeo safety car is replaced with Chrysler's Dodge Challenger.
