2018 Dodge Challenger
The Dodge Challenger has thrilled muscle-car enthusiasts for decades with its exceptional performance and power. So when the 2018 version was introduced earlier this year, it generated a lot of hype, and for good reason. The highlight of the lineup is the SRT Demon, an outrageous drag-racing beast that puts out a mind-blowing 808 horsepower. While the other Challenger trims offer the same engine options from the previous model year, they are still some of the most powerful cars on the market.View Inventory
Trim Levels (Exterior)
The 2018 Dodge Challenger comes in more than a dozen trim levels, including the SXT, SXT Plus, GT, R/T, R/T Plus, R/T Shaker, R/T Shaker Plus, R/T Scat Pack, T/A, T/A Plus, T/A 392, SRT 392, 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker, SRT Hellcat, and SRT Demon.
All the trims maintain their predecessors classic look with a long hood and deeply inset headlights and grille. While the new Challenger may appear smaller than its actual size from the front, its large rear haunches are a reminder that it's one of the biggest cars in its class. It becomes increasingly aggressive moving up the trim levels. At the highest end, the SRT Demon looks menacing with its wide body, flared fenders, massive hood scoop, and enormous drag tires.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger comes with the same four engine options as its predecessor, as well as a new supercharged engine for the Demon. The SXT, SXT Plus, and GT trims get the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that generates 305 horsepower. The R/T and T/A trims, with the exception of the Scat Pack and T/A 392, are equipped with a 372-horsepower 5.7-liter V-8, while the Scat Pack, T/A 392, SRT 392, and 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker use a 485-horsepower 6.4-liter V-8.
The top two trims offer a significant increase in power. The SRT Hellcat is fitted with a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine with 707 horsepower, while the SRT Demon features a ferocious supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 that churns out an incredible 808 horsepower. According to the National Hot Rod Association, the Demon is the fastest quarter-mile production car in the world.
The 2018 Challenger also provides excellent ride quality. It rides smoothly and comfortably at high speeds, along curvy roads, and around turns. With its great power and acceleration, it enables you to overtake with ease. The car also comes with sturdy brakes and responsive steering to give you more confidence on the road.
The 2018 Challenger is a five-seater coupe, but the SRT Demon can be configured to accommodate one to five people. For a muscle car, it's surprisingly spacious and comfortable, with ample legroom and 16 cubic feet of trunk space. The car comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, two USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, and the Uconnect infotainment system with a 7-inch display, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Optional features include satellite radio, Alpine six or nine-speaker audio system, Harman Kardon 18-speaker audio system, 8.4-inch display, upgraded Uconnect system, navigation, and power sunroof.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger received a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It offers a rearview camera as standard equipment, as well as available forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, and rear cross traffic alert.
