2009 Dodge Challenger R/T: Doesn't Skimp on Storage

September 07, 2009


The reborn Dodge Challenger often takes flak for being bigger than it needs to be. On back roads and in tight parking lots, I sometimes wish it wasn't so, um,un-small. But I never wish it had fewer storage slots. Storage space in our long-term Challenger R/T rivalsmost midsize sedans. A quick tour:

1. Center console box (hinged lid tipped back) with USB hookup and ample space for iPod and cord.

2. Oblong open slot provides ample room for key fob (not inserted indash thanks to keyless ignition), assorted house keysand employee ID badge.

3. Dual-depth cupholders. Deeper well houses 800mL stainless steel water bottle so that it doesn't obstruct use of pistol-grip shifter. Shallower well works well for take-out coffee without burying tall (small) double lattes.

4. Random rubberized slot behind shifter holds tin of mints. Or chapstick. Or hand sanitizer. Or plastic caps when adjusting tire pressure.
