2014 Dodge Challenger Coupe R/T 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

It has the nostalgic look but with newer technologies. It's the only muscle car that has a real back seat and ample trunk. It is a great riding car for trips and handles well but because of its weight would not be the best choice for taking curves. Seems like Dodge should be able to get a bit more mileage out of the RT model 5.7 L engine. Still looking for the right one for the right price as the 2014 RT Centennial I almost purchased had balky shifts on the upper gears

2014 Dodge Challenger Coupe R/T 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I love my Challenger! I special ordered a R/T base with some options (HID Headlights, Sound Group II, Sunroof).

Power from the 5.7 is adequate, but it isn't exactly fast considering how heavy the car is. I solved that little problem with a ProCharger, now it moves with authority like an SRT8 (490 wheel horsepower), but without the insurance costs.

It's big, roomy, and for the most part, comfortable. Enormous trunk. I do have a hard time finding a comfortable driving position for long drives though. The car would benefit greatly from either more telescoping in the steering column, power adjustable pedals, or moving the shifter (6spd) back farther toward the driver. The car rides like a Cadillac.

Optional HID headlights work very well, and are bi-xenon, so you get both low & high beams in HID.

Optional mid-level stereo (Sound Group II) is absolutely amazing. You can crank any type of music up to full volume with no distortion.

The first thing you'll want to do is toss the 18" "green" low rolling resistance Michelins in the garbage, and get a set of proper tires to keep from roasting rubber. Then, you'll need to get a Barton shifter to keep from constantly missing 3rd, and to eliminate the ridiculous throw from 4-5. A skip shift eliminator or programmer is also mandatory. I didn't buy a manual transmission to be forced to shift from 1 to 4!!!!!!!

Bluetooth "works", but takes quite some time to pair. And quite some time again when it un-pairs right after you get out on the road! And don't bother turning off the incoming SMS message alert... no matter how many times you turn this confounded feature OFF, it still breaks into the music for EVERY single text message. A new aftermarket head unit is in my near future.

The voice recognition sucks. If you need to call "home", good luck. I'm not sure how the engineers who designed the voice recognition system talk, but I have tried every conceivable way of saying "home", and the car simply refuses to call home. There is an option that allows the car to learn your voice. It's a joke, don't bother wasting your time.

I love the retro styling, but it does make for some LOUSY outward visibility to the sides. Lane changes are basically floor it and pray you can get ahead of whoever may happen to be in that ENROMOUS blind spot. If blind spot detection had been available in 2014, I'd have ordered it for sure.

If you get the 6spd (of course you did, who buys an automatic muscle car?!) do yourself a favor and get the resonators removed right away. It makes the car sound like it should have from the factory. There is no drone on the 6spd (autos drone and sound like crap when MDS kicks in, you're better off leaving the stock exhaust in place)

2014 Dodge Challenger Coupe R/T 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Have owned my RT classic for three years and have over 9,000 miles on it. The car is great looking black with red side stripe. Rides very comfortably and I average 27 mpg highway at 70 to75 mph. The 5.7 motor also runs on regular gas as apposed to the larger motors that require premium gas. The interior is very good quality, red and black leather. The dash board some complain about being out dated, but looks similar to the original 70s. As I wanted to stay looking like the 70 challenger I went with the classic with the polished mags , and don't mind the older style dash. Car runs great goes when you want it to and can be used as a every day driver. Only complaint is the exhaust isn't load enough.
