If you are interested in learning more about the Challenger, read on.
What are the powertrain options for the Challenger?
The Challenger SXT and GT models are powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that will give you 305 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. V8 power starts at the R/T trim level. It uses a 5.7-liter engine. When paired to a six-speed manual transmission it pumps out 375 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. When the eight-speed automatic transmission is selected, power comes in at 372 hp, 400 lb-ft. The R/T 392 model steps it up to an even larger 6.4-liter V8 that produces 485 hp. When you step into the SRT range, you are talking big engines and big power. It starts with the Hellcat, which uses a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 and puts out 717 hp and 650 lb-ft. The new-for-2019 Hellcat Redeye (797 horsepower) tops the line with astounding power.
What are some of the Challenger’s cabin features?
The Challenger may give off the feel of pure muscle and raw power on its exterior. But step inside the 2019 Challenger and you will find a cabin that is roomy, comfortable, and packed with modern technologies. There is a center stack touch screen that houses Dodge’s infotainment system – Uconnect. This year, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have been added. There is a nice balance of retro feel and modern touches. The Challenger’s rear seat and trunk area are larger than its Mustang and Camaro competitors. You can truly fit three people in the second row comfortably. The base SXT model comes standard with Bluetooth, USB and auxiliary inputs, 2-zone automatic climate control, remote start, and more. The GT steps up with features such as a hood scoop, rear parking sensors, a sport suspension, a performance steering system, and performance-related in-car apps. The R/T adds upgraded brakes, 20-inch wheels, a chrome fuel filler door, and an active sport exhaust.
Can you tell me more about the new SRT Hellcat Redeye model?
Last year Dodge released a new Challenger model – the SRT Demon – that was the quickest, fastest and most powerful muscle car ever. For the 2019 model year, Dodge has made another addition to the incredible SRT lineup, with the introduction of the Hellcat Redeye. The Redeye gets its power from a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V-8 engine that pumps out 797 horsepower and 707 lb.-ft. of torque. It is paired to a TorqueFlite 8HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission. The Redeye differs from other SRT Hellcats in that it features a larger supercharger, has an increased boost pressure, has a higher rpm limit, and has two dual-stage fuel pumps as opposed to one.
