Muscle cars. It’s a subject that enthusiasts are passionate about. It’s all about big brawny engines with lots of power. Peter Henshaw put it best in his book “Muscle Cars” when he said: “The Muscle Car is Charles Atlas kicking sand in the face of the 98 horsepower weakling.”
We can’t talk about muscle cars without mentioning the Dodge Challenger, which was introduced in the fall of 1969 as a 1970 model. This potent ponycar was called Dodge’s answer to the Mustang and Camaro.
Fast forward 38 years to the third generation of the Dodge Challenger, which reappeared after a 25-year absence. The vehicle debuted at the Chicago Auto Show and Philadelphia International Auto Show simultaneously on February 6, 2008. The new Challenger was a 2-door coupe which took design cues from the first generation, although now considerably longer and taller.
Cars.com said “the Challenger’s classic muscle car styling will draw you in, but its refined ride and handling and spacious interior make this big coupe appealing to drive.”
The 2014 Dodge Challengers boasts a trio of engines: a 3.6-liter V-6 that makes 305 horsepower and 268 lb.-ft. of torque, a 5.7-liter V-8 that generates 376 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque, and a 6.4-liter V-8 that blasts out 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque.
One big difference between the current generation of Challenger and the original is the level of sophistication and technology. Depending on trim levels, the Challenger can be had with xenon headlights, an 18-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, high-performance brakes and steering, adaptive suspension, a navigation system, remote start, heated mirrors, and displays for tire pressure as well as outside temperature. The best news about this classic, though, is probably the fact that owners can add Mopar upgrades, such as the racing division’s unique shift knobs, pedal kits and trim options.
Unlike its competitors, the Challenger has lots of room for five, with a trunk that has 16 cubic ft. of space.
