2018 Dodge Challenger Review
The 2018 Dodge Challenger is a pure muscle car in every way, offering two of the most powerful engines on the market, as well as a range of exciting technology features and one of the most spacious cabins in the class.
Drivers in Somerset, New Bedford, and Fall River can learn more about the 2018 Dodge Challenger with our in-depth model review.
The Challenger can be equipped with one of five different powertrain options. The base is a 3.6L V6 with an output of 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The available engines are all V8s, ranging from a 5.7L HEMI® with 372 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque to the unbelievable Demon Supercharged 6.2L with 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque.
Most models are standard with rear-wheel drive, with the exception of the GT and its standard all-wheel drive. Though the vehicle has sharp handling and remarkable agility, performance upgrades like Brembo brakes, high-performance and competition-grade suspension systems, and Bilstein adaptive dampers are available to enhance its capability.
Interior Space and Comfort
The Challenger seats five in most models, but the track-oriented Demon only seats one and offers upgrades for a 5-seat capacity. Unlike other muscle cars, the Challenger has a spacious cabin that can easily accommodate adults in the rear seat, offering ample head- and legroom for maximum comfort.
At 16 cubic feet, the trunk is larger than the rest of the class as well. This gives you the space to haul shopping bags, luggage, golf clubs, and just about any other small cargo you may need. There are also several small cubbies within the cabin, providing additional storage space for passengers’ convenience.
The Challenger comes standard with a Uconnect® infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, Bluetooth® connectivity, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, and a few USB ports. Available upgrades include a 6- or 9-speaker Alpine sound system, a Harman Kardon® sound system, satellite radio, and an 8.4-inch touch screen infotainment system with navigation. The Uconnect® system is widely regarded as one of the best on the market, featuring responsive inputs, sharp graphics, and a user-friendly interface, giving you endless entertainment and connectivity options.
For safety, the Challenger offers ample advanced driver-assistance technology to enhance your awareness and protection. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Forward-Collision Warning, Rear Parking Sensors, and Blind-Spot Monitoring are all on the offer, which use sensors to alert you to potential collisions and pedestrians on the road.
