Overview

Coast through the streets of any American city in a Challenger, and prepare for many prolonged stares, thumbs up, and requests to rev the engine. Seriously, Dodge’s charismatic muscle car could be the best wing man (or wing woman) ever in terms of helping shy folks make friends. Despite receiving few updates over the years, the Challenger’s square-jawed styling is as fetching now as ever, with the new Rallye Redline package making even the base model look like a badass. The base Challenger is sort of badass, actually, with 305 horsepower available from its 3.5-liter V-6. Upgrade to the 375-horsepower R/T model to get more power and a pistol-grip manual shifter, or if you simply want to say yes when someone asks you, "That thing got a Hemi?" True horsepower addicts will love the 470-horsepower SRT8, which also happens to come with clever Track Apps that record acceleration, cornering, and braking performance to confirm that, yes, indeed, it really is fast. Regardless of what’s under the hood, the Challenger is built using the same big bones as the full-size Charger sedan, making it the only muscle car with five seatbelts. Also, despite its reverently retrospective styling and its intense interior ambiance, the Challenger offers countless luxury and convenience features, including an integrated Garmin-based navigation system, heated leather seats, and, on SRT8 models, an eighteen-speaker sound system with 900 watts that shouldn't have any problem drowning out the intoxicating exhaust note. But then, who’d want to do that? Fun-O-Meter: 9
