While the fuel economy ratings aren’t out yet for the Challenger, it’s safe to say that the larger and faster options aren’t going to deliver on fuel economy.


Unlike other coupes, the Challenger has spacious front seats and plenty of legroom for the rear seats. The materials Dodge used are respectable, though not top of the line.

If you’re looking for serious performance, then you need to start at the R/T trim levels for a V8 engine. For some serious performance, though, Choose one of the Hellcat trims that have track level performance specs.

  1. Dodge Charger 

If you’re looking for refined handling, a powerful engine, and user-friendly technology, then the Charger is the muscle car for you. The V6 and V8 engines are sure to impress while the interior is comfortable and roomy.

Keep an eye out for the Scat Pack and Widebody SRT Hellcat models as they are new this year.


Standard under the Charger hood is a 3.6-liter V6 engine that pumps out 300 horsepower. If this isn’t enough, consider the V8 option that jumps the horsepower up to 370. Then there’s the Scat Pack engine that’s a mind-blowing 6.4-liter V8 that produces a head-spinning 485 horsepower.

If even that isn’t enough, then you need the Hellcat. Aptly named, it’s 6.2-liter V8 pumps out 707 horsepower. Prepare to go from 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds.


This muscle car has room for everyone with five spacious seats. While other vehicles on this list focus on the front passengers, three adults can comfortably sit in the back seat of the Charger.

While the interior is comfortable, it isn’t the most modern or luxurious feeling. It can even feel a bit dated.

  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
