- $20,421 - $35,504
- No trim specified for this review
- Head turning looks. A blast to drive and excellent fuel economy.
- A little tough to see out of when backing out of a parking spot.
Purchased As New
After driving all three pony cars, the Challenger was head and shoulders above the rest. The Mustang was cramped and the Sync system was so complicated, the salesman couldn't even explain how to use it. The performance was exactly the same as the Challenger but I felt the 'stang rode too harshly. The Camaro was too closed in and the interior looked plastic-y and cheap. I bought the SXT Plus in Header Orange with the 20" chrome wheels, rear spoiler and black leather interior. The voice actuated stereo and Bluetooth phone system is easy to learn and use. From day one, people would walk across parking lots to take pictures and compliment my car. People who say they don't even like Dodge's say that that the Challenger is the best rebirth of the 70's muscle car of the three contenders. I can't believe the 30 mpg highway and mid 20's around town. I generally drive responsibly but every once in a while I'll pop it up to 130 or so just because I can. My Pentastar V6 has the same horsepower as my old 2000 Trans Am with a 5.7L LS1. The built in 0-60 timer is cool and fun to use. The ride is solid and the ESC has gotten me out of trouble more than once already. The Sport mode makes it even more fun to drive. The Challenger is the only 5 passenger of the pony cars and the backseat is surprisingly comfortable. It also has an armrest, drink holders and air conditioning vents. Plus your head actually sits safely under the roof rather than the rear glass as in the 'stang. All in all, I'm VERY happy with my Challenger 1 year and 15K miles later with ZERO repairs needed.
