2009 Dodge Challenger R/T: Spare Me

May 18, 2009

The 2009 Dodge Challenger has a butt you could serve tea on. This is a good thing because it allows for 16.2 cubic feet of luggage space.

It also has folding rear seats. They don't fold flat but they do allow for extra room for long items. The trunk has a wide opening and good depth, too. I can stand my laptop bag up straight with plenty of room to spare.

And speaking of spares, there isn't one.

More after the jump...

A compact spare tire is optional equipment, which we did not opt.

The compactwould go where the foam insert is now. But there isn't enough room for a full-size spare under the trunk liner.

If we wanted a full-size spare tire, we'd have to fasten it down inside the trunk taking up precious cargo room.
