2018 Dodge Challenger videos

CARLOS LAGO: Over my shoulder are four Dodge Challenger SRT Demons. And in front of them is a dragstrip. I guess-- bet you could figure out what we're going to do. [ENGINE REVVING] That felt good. That felt real good. I have no idea what I just ran. I saw the speed going north or close to 140, not exactly 140. But overall, that felt good. I could probably do a little bit harder on the launch. [MUSIC PLAYING] I'm sweating like crazy. Want to see more? Check out the full video on the Edmund's YouTube channel.

Dodge Challenger vs. Ford Mustang

Deciding if either the Dodge Challenger or Ford Mustang is better will depend on your definition of a muscle car. The Challenger is more of a grand touring coupe and drag strip racer in its execution, while the Mustang is a lighter and more agile opponent that is better at taking curves in a canyon or on a road course. The Mustang received significant improvements for 2018.

Dodge Challenger vs. Chevrolet Camaro

If comfort and convenience are deciding factors, the Dodge Challenger is the clear winner. If performance is a priority, the Chevrolet Camaro handily beats the Challenger. When it comes to handling in particular, the Challenger would be left in the dust, even with all related options added. The Camaro gets points deducted for its limited outward visibility and tiny trunk, both of which are about as bad as they get in the world of non-exotic coupes.

Compare Dodge Challenger & Chevrolet Camaro features

Dodge Challenger vs. Dodge Charger

In the absence of a third muscle car coupe, the closest rival outside of the traditional Mustang and Camaro competitors comes from within Dodge itself. The Dodge Charger can be thought of as a four-door version of the Challenger, with similar features and engine choices. Both are equally sinister, but the Charger gets an edge for the convenience of rear doors.

Is the Dodge Challenger a good car?

The Challenger is larger than the other American muscle cars, making it more accommodating for rear-seat passengers and cargo. It also has a more comfortable ride quality, but as a result, it isn't as nimble as the competition. With seven different trim levels, plus additional variants of each, there is a Challenger to suit a variety of tastes and budgets. The base SXT model is anything but slow with its 305-horsepower V6 engine, while the R/T gets a stout 375-hp V8. Power and performance build through the lineup until you reach the 840-hp Demon.
