Looks and Power at a Bargain
By brownwa on


2013 Dodge Challenger R/T 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Dealer options: Blacktop Package This car totally changes its character with the Super Track Pak (STP). Reviews peg the manual RT as the fat girl of the muscle car bunch. But with the suspension and steering upgrades the Challenger elevates to porn-star like proportions. And it's just as much fun to drive. I was a Japanese import fanboy for +10 years and fantasized about buying a BRZ. However just one test drive in the Dodge changed my mind. Power is sexy, and the RT moves just as well as it looks. Buying a 150ft-lb BRZ over this 410ft-lb beauty would be a mistake; and for the same price!

Best Features

- Best looking retro on the road, besides the Fiat 500 - Girls hanging out of their cars to wave at you - Same transmission as a Corvette and GT500 - Big brakes that work (Super Track Pak) - Grin inducing power - Turning off the radio to hear the V8 soundtrack - Blowing away imports that cost twice the price - Great mileage for a V8 - Regular gas (87 octane) - Inspiring handling - Turning off stability control (with Super Track Pak)

Worst Features

- Super Track Pak (STP) is a bumpy ride - STP needs adjustable damping - Poor blind spot and rear visibility - Rear parking assist should be standard
